About Shane Bocock: Owner / Property Manager
Ever since they were kids, both Shane and Melissa spent a lot of time outdoor in the woods on family camping trips, hiking, canoeing and fishing. It was always their dream to do the same with their kids. In 2006, Shane and Melissa had their first child, a beautiful baby boy. They decided that Shane would quit teaching high school chemistry and stay at home to take care of their son. About the same time, Shane and Melissa purchased a 42 acre plot of land near Warsaw, Ohio. During the next three years, the Bocock Family grew with the addition of two daughters and they spent a lot of time hiking, fishing, picking berries, camping, relaxing and saving money. During this time, they also thought how nice it would be to build a cabin that Shane--while still staying home with the kids--could rent out, allowing others to enjoy the beauty of the property. With the state of the economy, the idea was both exciting and scary. However, in the spring of 2011, Shane and Melissa felt the time was right. They wanted to build something special that would add to the already unique property. The Woodbury Cabin was started in June of 2011 and finished by the end of October the same year. Within days of listing the cabin rental online, calls started coming in. By 2014, with all dates filling up yearly at the Woodbury Cabin, Shane and Melissa decided it was time to add another rental. They came across a farmhouse that bordered the Mohican Forest in early 2015. They immediately fell in love with it, bought it, and turned it into a nightly vacation rental called the Mohican Farmhouse. In 2017, The lodge at Babble Brook was purchased near Mohican State Park as the third secluded vacation rental with a private pond!

What makes this Cabin unique
There are so many favorites with the Lodge, it's hard to decide what to do when you get there. The 40ft covered front porch has rockers and a relaxing swing overlooking the pond. The pond always seems to sparkle in the sunlight. The great room is so open and tall and the giant stone fireplace and huge mantle is such a nice place to gather with family and friends. The loft is a comfy spot to sit and read. The kitchen is spacious and the bar makes it easy to lay out a "buffet."
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
in one word: OUTSTANDING!!
From the time we arrived at the cabin, we were thrilled with what we saw and found. The bedrooms were excellent and the kitchen had everything you will need to grill outside or cook a meal for the family. If it isn't there, you probably don't need it anyway. Called Shane when we got there about the wood burning stove and he came by to give the straight scoop on use and where firewood and tender was. Never had a problem with it. The Christmas decorations were a plus and gave that down home look and feel to the place. Only wish we had more time to spend there but plans just wouldn't allow it. Fantastic place for large families who enjoy the rural feel of a home. Thanks so much for letting us stay at this fantastic place.
Well appointed, most anything we needed.
Our stay at Babble Brook Lodge was an excellent get-away for our family, and the stone fireplace was a perfect backdrop for a holiday picture. Many hours were spent in the basement playing pool and watching movies. The five bedrooms were enough to accommodate my husband and I and our three boys and their children, plus the beds were super comfy. We took the 15 minute drive to Mohican State park and had an excellent hike to Lyons Falls and the dam. Babble Brook Lodge was truly a place that I will long remember.
Beautiful, Peaceful, Well-Appointed Family Home
Our family is still talking about our wonderful weekend! Three generations enjoyed laughing, eating, campfires, movies, football games and fishing. For the anglers reading this review: bluegill and bass were biting each evening. The house was roomy and clean. It was great to have a first floor bedroom for our 86 year old Dad. The beds were very comfy.
The kitchen was so well stocked! A crock pot, electric griddle, baking pans and lots of dishes and glasses are available. We grabbed a couple of folding tables and chairs from the garage and set them up on the porch for a great view at dinner.
Thank you, Shane for creating such a magical place and for checking in to make sure that we had everything we needed.
Our family highly recommends this amazing lodge for your family's memorable stay!
Beautiful, quiet but close to Mohican’s adventures.
This property was exactly what we were expecting and more. Not one disappointing thing. Our family all fit very comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked with any cooking/baking utensils and items you could need. Shane and Melissa clearly take pride in this property and it shows. The owners are very responsive to questions and needs. Cannot recommend this property highly enough!
Very clean and well stocked!
This log cabin was very clean and has everything you need from a well stocked kitchen to linens. It has a beautiful yard and huge front porch that overlooks it. Looking forward to booking it again.
