What Past Guests Are Saying
Great Cabin! Loved our stay!
Enjoyed our stay at this cabin. High quality. Cabin was simply wonderful, very clean, and beautifully furnished. We were a party of 6, and were very comfortable. Beautiful lakes were very close by. Great place to relax and kick back. Highly recommend, and plan to come back soon. Owners were very nice to work with also. Enjoyed the privacy and woods.
Wonderful Cabin Perfect for any Getaway
When my friends and I want to get away for a weekend, the Possum Lodge has been perfect for us every time. In the summer we were able to hike, grill outside, and make a campfire. In the winter we can still have our fire in the indoor wood burning fireplace. Nothing beats a wood fire in a log cabin in the winter.
Other cabins we have stayed in expect you to bring everything. The Possum Lodge is always stocked with spices, knives for cooking, linens, etc. The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful time when you stay here!

Winter Holiday Getaway was awesome. Great cabin!
We wanted a place to get away to during the rush of all our Holiday preparation, and Possum Lodge was the perfect choice. You folks really decorate you cabin for Christmas. Our stay was perfect, from the lovely furnishings, to the Christmas tree, to the cozy fire in the fireplace. Your place is so clean and looks as if every thing is brand new. Very well maintained. Privacy was awesome. We relaxed, enjoyed hiking in your woods, and just getting away from it all. We plan to return. Highly recommend your cabin. You folks were very nice to work with also.
Chris from Youngstown
Awesome cabin - had a wonderful time
This was a terrific cabin. Plenty of room - truly was more of a log home than a cabin. The local area had plenty for us to see and do. But spent most of our time at the cabin just enjoying it and relaxing. Very nicely furnished. Enjoyed the wood burning fireplace during our stay. We would highly recommend and plan to return. Lots of deer and turkey on the property also. Was fun to watch during our hikes.
Wonderful Get away!!! Happy we came there.
Spent 4 wonderful nights at Possum Lodge in October. The fall colors were great. Your cabin is simply wonderful. It is so beautiful, clean and just fun to relax in. Have told all our friends about your place. We highly recommend. Our only complaints was our stay should have been longer.
Happy we found Possum Lodge - Great Experience
Absolutely loved your cabin. Very comfortable. We truly felt like we had escaped, and were able to relax and enjoy everything. If you love nature and hiking, this place is awesome. Great trails on the property and plenty to see and do in the local area. Cabin is very clean and well kept. Great furnishings. We plan to come back in the spring. Highly recommend.
Great cabin was perfect retreat for us
Stayed at Possum Lodge as part of our gals getaway. It was wonderful. We took advantage of "in cabin massages" and had a great time relaxing and visiting. Pampered ourselves and left totally refreshed. The cabin was beautiful, very clean, and nicely furnished. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

Super cabin and great place for a mini vacation
Had a great time staying at your cabin. Very impressed with the cleanliness and comfort. Our kids loved the loft in the cabin, and your woods - great trails to hike on. Kitchen was well supplied with everything we could need; pots, pans, etc., plus there was a gas grill outdoors. Loved the Drop Tine Tavern. Spent a lot of time out there eating and just relaxing. Great bird watching. Saw some hikers walking down the road since your road is part of the Buckeye Trail. Have told all our friends about your place.We will be back next year for sure. Thank you for such a wonderful place.
Anne and family
Happy we discovered your cabin. What a great place!!!
Spent a 3 night stay at Possum Lodge. Excellent place to relax and kick back. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our entire stay. Can't wait to come back. Lovely setting. Highly recommend. Loved the privacy and seclusion.
Wanda C. and family
Awesome place to get away from it all.
Totally enjoyed our stay at Possum Lodge.Simply beautiful cabin and woods. Very impressed and would highly recommend. Owners were great to work with and the cabin is very clean, comfortable, and very nicely furnished. We truly did have all the comforts of home. Will definitely be back.
Super place to escape and unwind.
We recently stayed at Possum Lodge and absolutely enjoyed every moment. We would highly recommend this getaway. Cabin is nice and secluded in rural setting. Very clean and the cabin decor and furnishings were of a high quality. We were very comfortable, with all the amenities and comforts of home. Their private woods and trails were simply beautiful, and it was near two beautiful huge lakes.
escape summer city heat
We enjoyed the private hiking trails being able to have dogs off leash. Love the back deck with its peaceful view and all the hummingbirds.
What a find! Perfect for a getaway.
My wife and I stayed at Possum Lodge with two friends for a total of two nights. We were visiting the area to attend Jamboree in the Hills, a huge country music festival that seems to be the area's largest annual attraction.
From the first phone call right on through our departure, Nancy was attentive to our needs, helpful with information, and willing to adjust according to changes in our plans. I couldn't have asked for better customer service.
The cabin itself is delightful! It is a charming two-bedroom cabin with a nice sized loft area, living room, dining area, and bathroom. It feels very much like a traditional cabin, but with all the amenities you want (TV, washer/dryer, microwave, etc). The porches on each side are awesome! We used the grill one night (plenty of propane available) and made use of the personalized Cornhole boards too. Next time, my wife and I will stay a few days longer just to relax, enjoy the cabin, and the surrounding area.
A couple small quibbles:
The kitchen is great, but lacks a few items we assumed would be present, like a utility knife for cutting vegetables and vegetable oil. No big deal, and we made due just fine, but something to keep in mind as you plan your meals.
We originally planned to bring a group of eight people and ended up with just four. Nancy was awesome(!) in changing the fees despite the last minute change, but I must say in the end I was glad we didn't have eight. I can see where eight could sleep in the cabin, but it would be pretty cramped. I recommend no more than six adults max.
Response from Nancy Slusarczyk - 08/06/2012
Thank you for all the kind compliments. Glad to hear you had a great stay, and we look forward to your return.
Sounds like you didn't find the one drawer in the kitchen to the left of the stove that is for knives only. It is separate from the drawer with the silverware and steak knives in the kitchen island. The knife drawer has just about every knife there is in that drawer including a paring knife, filet knife, vegetable knife, bread knife, as well as a small assortment of other knives. Can't help you with vegetable oil though. That's a food product.
We appreciate your business and are always happy to hear from our clients. Thank you again for your stay.

Relaxation in a beautiful and quiet setting.
The service we received was outstanding. Nancy made everything very clear from the directions to the cabin to what pontoon boats she felt were nicer than others to rent. She had the bird feeders filled and we were constantly entertained by the hummingbirds. She greeted us warmly. The cabin was furnished perfectly. They provided us with more than we would ever need. Two porches (one in front of house and one in back) provided two distinct gorgeous views. It was a large cabin. There was a lot of land with the cabin to roam around on. Great firepit to roast marshmellows. We loved that we could enjoy this with our dog, which she also welcomed warmly. We will return each year now and have already told our friends about it. Great getaway to refresh the spirit.
Great Place, Great Experience
Our stay at Possum Lodge far exceeded our expectations. The owners provided accurate and timely vacancy, cost, and related information. They are very friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, we found that they had left very detailed information about the opportunities available on their sixty-four acres as well as places of interest in the general area.
The lodge is incredible! It is very clean and neat. The peaceful, back to nature environment was wonderful. Everything you could possibly want is provided; gas grill, pots and pans, big refrigerator, stove, TV, etc. Nice back deck. We felt the great accomodations were well worth the cost. We are not really into the "hunting" theme which is the decor throughout the lodge, but we understand that appeals to many.
We selected Possum Lodge in large part because it allowed us to bring our two dogs. It was a great fun for us all, and it took the dogs two days of almost non-stop sleeping to rebound from all of the activity. They were happy and worn out!
Enjoyed the attractive cabin and surrounding area for walking
We were met by the owner, who was prepared with detail explanations of and handouts and information on the cabin and surrounding area.
The Cabin was very attractive both on the inside and outside. The front porch and back deck were huge and and very relaxing places to spend time. We were only there for two nights and spent time hiking on the scenic trails. Although there are nearby lakes we are not into water related activities.
The best feature of the cabin is the details put into the inside of the cabin and the expansive deck area
Beautiful Property - Great Owner
The property was beautiful, the cabin is well kept and in good repair.
the owner was very nice, and accommodating. The area is a great place for vacationing.
An experience our family will never forget!!!
We have visited Possum Lodge twice in the last few years and we have had a blast both times. The views of the lush landscape, and the cozy yet luxurious cabin made our stay beyond relaxing. On the last trip we invited my aunt and uncle and they are now hooked!!! I'm sure that they will become regulars at the cabin just like we are. If you're looking for a secluded forest feel with all the amenities of home, Possom Lodge is your best choice. We can't wait to got back!! Hopefully we can set something up for this winter!! Thanks Nancy!!!

Glad to see you again, and thank you for your review. Welcome to our Possum Lodge family. We aim to please. :)
What a great place!
We went to Possum Lodge in June 2012 and took our adult daughter and two dogs with us. What a gorgeous place and very pet friendly. The air was on when we got there and everything was spotless. What a gorgeous place. We can't wait to go back another time. Nancy was a joy to work with and we were very impressed with this cabin and property.
We enjoyed our stay. The cabin is beautiful. There was plenty of space for everyone. The decks were nice. We also enjoyed the hummingbirds. Swam at Tappan lake which was only 8 miles away. We also went to The Wilds and did the zip lines.
Glorious week with a bit of excitement
Wonderful stay at lodge. Beautifully appointed cabin. Very clean-nicely decorated and comfortable. Short distance to marinas. Peaceful propery. Hummingbirds playful and friendly. could have done without the storm but even that was. Ice to watch from the porch until it got too fierce
Owner a pleasure to deal with
Response from Nancy Slusarczyk - 07/09/2012
You guys were real troopers and are now veterans of what was probably the worst storm to hit Ohio and surrounding states in decades. I was very proud of the clean up crew we have, and the quick response of our neighbors in getting the road opened up. All the tree debris you saw is now completely gone, and everything is back to normal. Looking forward to having you guys come back.
Marjorie L Galownia
Fantastic and relaxing. a beautiful experience.
The service is excellent.The log cabin home is unique,and spacious. The location is great you have a chioce of three lakes boating,fishing,or swiming. if your a hunter you have 64 acers of pathes, tree stands,and wild life...a hunters dream. The only dislike is cell phone service, you have to go away from the cabin to make a call.
Sheffield Village, OH
Will exceed your expectations!
Possum Lodge is a charming log home with modern amenities, just minutes away from two beautiful lakes. Whether you like to fish, hike or just nature watch, this peaceful retreat is for you! This was a repeat visit for myself, my husband and our dog and we hope to visit again and again! Nestled on a beautifully wooded 64 acres, it's a piece of heaven just two hours away from our home west of Cleveland. Take a short drive and be transported to another quieter, slower-paced world and relax!
Wonderfully private and perfect for a getaway stay!
The cabin was awesome! The privacy was second to none. The cabin was clean and well maintained. Maps of the property were provided. The full kitchen and bath were nice to have. It really suits all types. They have direct tv for the in doors people and endless activities for the outdoors people.

Thank you so much for you business. We look forward to having you come back.

Good hunting and fishing away from the crowds
Just returned from our third vacation at Possum Lodge. We had great fishing at Piedmont Lake. We mostly fished for crappies, but we also caught largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegills, yellow perch, rock bass, and one white bass. Piedmont is noted for big muskies, huge catfish, and good saugeye fishing as well. You can see the state record 55# muskie at the Piedmont Marina. We have also stayed there in the months of October for fall color & hiking, and late april for turkey hunting. Possum Lodge is a great place for families to enjoy nature. You can sit on the back deck and, if you are quiet, see deer, turkeys, songbirds, squirrels, raccoons, groundhogs, and other wildlife. It is quiet and peaceful, with very little traffic. My aging black lab loves to sit outside with us, and he enjoys riding on the pontoon boats when we go fishing. The cabin couldn't be nicer. It has Direct TV and we never have a problem getting a signal with our Verizon phones. If you need to get on the Internet the Piedmont Marina has free wi-fi service and a restaurant. You can rent a fishing boat for $299 a week, or a pontoon for $550/week. We fished from Sunday to Thursday. The fishing was very good every day, and the fishing pressure was very light. The lake has a 9.9 HP limit. The cabin property has good hunting, but there is plenty of public land available within a short drive. We will return to Possum Lodge soon.

Thank you so much for the review and your photos. We enjoyed having you back. We truly do appreciate your business.
Fantastic weekend away
We cooked, we hiked, we grilled, we made a campfire and roasted smores, we played games inside and outside, and generally had a fantastically relaxing weekend away. Lots of character and the owners are very accommodating (even when you mistakenly drive away with the key!).
Response from Nancy Slusarczyk - 06/21/2012
Thank you for your stay, and also for taking the time to post a review. We truly do appreciate your business and look forward to having you back.
Avon Lake, OH
Quiet and peaceful home away from home.
Beautiful home and surrounding woods. Love to just sit and watch and listen to all the wildlife. Cabin is very clean and love the rustic decorations. Very clean and well maintained.
Charming, Comfy, Convenient Cabin Getaway.
After just a two hour drive (the time it takes me to drive to Columbus)I felt like I was in another state. Check-in was painless and Nancy is very personable and helpful. This is not a rickety cabin in the woods. Granite counter tops, hardwood floors, ceramic tile in the bathroom, central air and heat, not to mention satellite TV! Yet the decor is very rustic and warm, complete with a large stone fireplace sporting a deer head over the mantle.
Visited both lakes during my stay (only takes minutes to get to each one). Hiked a wide trail through the woods. Laid a blanket down on the ground in the open area in front of the cabin at night and watched the stars!
Slept downstairs in one of the two bedrooms, in a very comfortable bed. Did not sleep in the loft, but would not hesitate to do so. The cabin is very clean and well maintained.
I love the covered back porch with a counter top rail overlooking the woods. It is a lovely outdoor room called "The Drop Tine Tavern". They established a feeding area partway down the hill, and from your stool you can have breakfast while watching the wildlife below.
Looking forward to going back again, perhaps with a few more friends.
Really enjoyed your cabin, Possum Lodge
My family and I were very pleased with our stay at your cabin. What a beautiful place. We had a wonderful time. Your trails are awesome, and the location nice and private. Cabin was very clean and quality furnished. The nearby lakes were also very beautiful and relaxing. We would highly recommend your place, and we plan to be back. Thanks for the great vacation spot to escape to.
It is very relaxing and peaceful.
I highly recommend this lodge if you are looking to get away from it all. The nearby lakes are great for fishing and if you are a hunter, this would be a great place to come home to after a day of hunting. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be here in the Fall. If you enjoy camp fires, quiet, fishing and hunting, this is the place to be.
Quite Place to spend with siblings.
A very nice and clean cabin in the woods. Watching the birds and other animals from the back porch,where we ate all of our meals. There was everything we needed in the cabin to make meals.Front porch was also nice to sit and watch the animals.A quit place to relax and enjoy my siblings.Things to do close by. A good place to stay.
if you want to go to a cabin, this is it!!
This cabin is amazing. Everything looks brand new, and it is immaculate. The back bar and seating area is perfect to watch birds while enjoying company. We stayed somewhere else a few weeks later, as this cabin was bookedand we were miserable bc we werent here!!!

We had a fantastic< relaxing< wonderful getaway!!!
My husband and I and our 2 dogs spent 3 wonderful nights in this beautiful cabin on 64 gorgeous acres. The decor is so wonderfully decorated and the attention to details is awesome.we spent many hours on the drop tine tavern (back porch)enjoyed many birds at the feeders and watching the raccoons.We had a great time walking the trails. We have been there now in winter and spring, and both times was so enjoyable. Cant wait to visit again!!
Comfortable and Relaxing
The rental process, from inquiring about dates to special circumstances of our stay, were handled with friendly ease by the owners. The cabin itself was extremely clean, with all the comforts of home and then some. It was quiet and secluded and perfect for a relaxing getaway for the weekend.
The cabin was clean and comfortable. We were greeted when we arrived with a tour. There were information pamphlets on points of interest along with maps. Near by there is hunting, fishing, shopping and alot of hiking trails. It is also very relaxing. The 7 of us girls had a great time.
Sheffield Village, OH
Possum Lodge is Ohio's hidden treasure. A beautiful cabin nestled in 24 beautiful verdant acres. Two gorgeous lakes only minutes away. My husband and I (and our dogs!) had a wonderful week and would highly recommend this cabin destination.
I wanted to say thank you for a wonderful stay! The girls cant wait to come back :). Thanks again Nancy and see you soon.

Great family getaway
Had the pleasure of spending 4 wonderful days at Possum Lodge with my family. We fell in love with the place. Our kids loved the log cabin, and trails through the property. Cabin was very comfortable. We highly recommend and will definitely be back. Great privacy.
Being a nature enthusiast this was the perfect place for a get away. The land was great and so was the cabin. Highly recommend
