About Nancy Dawson
In 2014, my husband and I purchased this beautiful farm in Killbuck, Ohio as a place to come visit our son, daughter-in-law and three wonderful grandchildren and return to nature at the same time. Ethan's Retreat, previously known as Hanna's Cottage in the Woods, is the perfect get away to share with all those yearning for some quiet time, shopping in nearby Amish towns such as Berlin and Sugarcreek, and one of the only places we are aware of that not only allow, but encourage you to bring your family pet(s)! This is a great place for everything from celebrating a quiet anniversary weekend to bringing the kids along for fun in the hot tub and nature trail walks. We even have board games and a selection of DVD's for all to enjoy! The Retreat is dedicated and in loving memory of our precious grandson, Ethan, who became one of God's sweetest angels at only two months of age. Hope to meet you soon!! Nancy Dawson (AKA Grams)

Great getaway! Everything was supplied!
Property was great! Clean and everything was supplied...all you need to bring was good and drink. Pet friendly. Our only concern was no wi-fi available; but, if you can over come that, we highly recommend. 30minutes from great shopping and outdoor activities
Off the beaten track
Ethan’s retreat may be off the beaten track but it’s still close enough to any of the activities in the area that you won’t miss out. Lovely quiet setting with anything you could want for your stay. Farm fresh eggs in the fridge along with a nice bottle of wine and chilled glasses to welcome you. Very nice.
Comfortable for 2 couples. Each with a private bath and comfortable bed.
Even the dogs get treated well. Extra leashes and waste bags. Towels just for them. Dishes for food and water and a bed in front of the fireplace.
It’s worth the drive.
Thank you so much for your lovely review! We hope you will join us again soon!!
Peace and Quiet
This is the perfect location to get away and leave all the stress of phones and internet behind. The property is nicer than the pictures on their site show. The cabin has lots of things provided that I was not expecting. For example a dozen fresh eggs, a bottle of wine and chilled glasses. a grill with an extra propane tank. The cabin is pet friendly with toys, leashes, and treats available to keep your pet happy. I will definitely return.
Very quiet and relaxing
The property was very well kept and had so many extra items provided for us like k-cups, seasonings, lots of blankets and shower items and much more than we expected. There was even a dog bed, leashes and treats for our 4 legged child. There was poor cell service but that was actually a positive for our family and it was actually a blessing to get everyone away from technology. Overall, everything was as promised and even a little extra.
Thank you so much for your nice review! I hope you will join us again in the future!!
We highly recommend Eathan's Retreat. It had everything we needed.
Great get-away for a girls trip
We were a group of 6 who stayed at Ethan's Retreat for a girls weekend. The cabin was very clean and comfortable even for a large group! The provided linens were excellent. Location was secluded and private; we didn't see anyone else during our stay. Cell service was very limited with no wifi but this was not a problem for us. The pictures on the listing are a bit outdated, the TV and kitchen were newer and nicer than shown! Everything we needed was provided, including firewood, lighters, beach towels, and some snacks and toiletries. We enjoyed the hot tub, it was very clean and private with a great view of the forest. The back deck is gorgeous and overlooks the forest floor, we had many peaceful moments with the sun filtering through the trees. Our one suggestion would be to provide a map/description of the trails on the property. We made some wonderful memories here, there is nothing like a reunion weekend with old friends. Thank you for opening up your home to us!
