Cabin on the Hill at Laurel Springs Farm
Our newly renovated log home features cottage style furnishings with a rustic twist. The flooring is a sustainable art paper floor featuring inlaid fall leaves from the property. Originally built by and home to a young Amish couple that moved to Minnesota with their growing family; we had the cabin moved to our farm on the foot of "the big hill" back in 2005 when we updated it to have electricity, appliances and running spring water. We have an on-demand hot water system, so feel free to fill the footed slipper tub and relax in the hot spring water or shower off after a day of hiking and then kick back in the recliner in front of one of the electric fireplace which can display with or without heat. Enjoy the remarkable sunsets from the front porch which overlooks Laurel Run Canyon from a picture-perfect vantage point on the hill. Relax in front of the gas firepit or slip into the hot tub for a relaxing soak.
Enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience in the Hocking Hills offering seasonal farm items such as free-range eggs, duck eggs, berries, pumpkins and more which you can prepare in the fully equipped kitchen and enjoy right in your cabin or take with you to enjoy at home.
Want to explore the Hocking Hills State Parks? We are a short drive to many of the parks.
Want to go horseback riding? The Spotted Horse Ranch is less than a mile from our farm. Or go canoeing or rafting in nearby Logan. Need to grab some groceries, gas or visit a local eatery? We are just 3 miles from Laurelville, featuring the world famous Laurelville cider or stop by The Ridge Inn for Jo's famous donuts! So, there are conveniences and attractions nearby, but they are completely out of site as you go into seclusion at the cabin
Other on-site activities such as walking the trails on the hill overlooking the canyon, barns and pond. Drop a line to catch a fish - we offer catch-and-release bluegill and bass and the occasional turtle from the dock on our spring-fed pond using our simple homemade cane poles. Bait is often available at the South Perry carryout, or use a piece of hot dog to catch a bluegill!
Arrange with us to pick some flowers from our flower gardens or pick blackberries, red raspberries or blueberries when they are in season or picnic in the garden shelter. You can also arrange with us to visit the barnyards to see the steer, chickens, ducks, guineas or even pigs which we generally have during the spring and early summer.
Bring your hiking boots and enjoy the breathtaking view from the top of the big hill or even spread out a blanket and picnic and enjoy the one of a kind view.
Nighttime viewing of the Milky Way is easy from here because of the lack of light pollution and our cleared hilltop.
Bring your telescope to setup some night time viewing!
Enjoy the overlooking views from the 3/4 wrap around porch.
Grill up something delicious to eat on the custom charcoal park-style grill pit.

PLEASE NOTE: the cabin is not suited to handicapped folks or small children due to its location and steep staircases, loft ladder and high railings.
Although we are avid animal lovers, we do not allow pets as it is dangerous for them and our animals. We are very careful as we incorporate new animals into the environment as our farm animals tend to be very territorial. For your safety and that of our animals, please do not feed the animals. This includes any cat that may want to hang out - if you do not encourage them, they will not hang out as some folks do not care for our outdoor feline friends which are essential to any farm.
Wireless internet access, albeit sometimes slow, is available free of charge, as is over the air TV channels depending upon weather conditions on the upstairs Smart TV. The first floor has a smaller Smart TV that is equipped with wireless, a DVD/Blu Ray player and HDMI inputs in case you want to bring along your favorite movie or you can select from one we have at the cabin for your convenience. A selection of board games, cards and puzzles are also available for your entertainment.
