... a rural, circa 1842 farmhouse with a cozy guest house apartment and "home away from home" atmosphere while enjoying a country setting and only minutes from town. We're centrally located between Toledo and Cleveland and only 20 minutes from Cedar Point Amusement Park! Surrounding us are wineries, historic landmarks, golf courses, fun filled attractions, Lake Erie fishing charters and beaches, railroad museum, State Parks, nature trails and bird watching, auto race tracks and so much more. We are only 20 minutes away from most everything!
We know as travelers, what it's like to stay in one room motels, hotels and bed and breakfasts and that is precisely what sets us apart. Stretch out and enjoy a spacious, nicely furnished apartment and have the entire private second floor accommodations to yourself. Our home isn't frilly fancy and filled with elaborate antiques, rather, we like to refer to our style as farmhouse casual which offers you the amenities you would expect.
Majestic white pines adorn our backyard, flower beds to view, and birds to hear while you savor the fresh country breezes. Our backyard is ample size for yard games and the safety for children and adults alike! How about a good ole' fashion game of croquet, ladder ball, yard jarts or frisbee.
During harvest time, it's not unusual to see deer wandering the fields and at night listen to the coyotes baying while enjoying a crackling fire under our old world style pergola. Perhaps during a warm summer evening star gazing and enjoying the hot tub, you will even catch your own special shooting star to wish upon.
Having a birthday or celebration? We would love to help plan your getaway in style! Whether it's decorating the guesthouse for a birthday, picking up flowers or a bottle of wine, securing tickets for an event or making an appointment for a massage, just ask and we will happy to help make your trip memorable.
