About Abigail Klamert

I grew up in Texas but my roots are in Deersville. This is my great grandparent's home and I spent every summer here until it was sold years ago. It is a dream come true to own my grandpa's house in Deersville!

Abigail Klamert purchased this house in 2012

Why Abigail Klamert chose Deersville

Hazel was my grandmother and she grew up here as did my mother. This house is beautiful and we restored her to original 1850's beauty but added our Texas touches. Fully furnished kitchen and bath, everything you need to relax or explore.

What makes this house unique

The 100 year old Deersville General Store is right next door with their world famous homemade ice cream! You will love the peace and quiet at Hazel's House. But this little village is a busy place in the summer with the Deersville Community Players theater productions on weekends and Tappan Lake and Clendenning Lake Parks literally just down the road. The Buckeye Trail loop is nearby for hiking, and miles of scenic byways wind their way through Harrison County. Amish country is an hour away and check out the Train Museum and depot in Dennison, 12 miles west. Or you can simply relax on the porch swing and do nothing at all.

Just like I remembered when I was growing up.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to move for a week into your past, into a place that you remember from your childhood, into a more peaceful time of going for Ice cream at the general store in the evening and sitting on the front porch and eating the ice cream, of going next door at nine when the general store opens and talking to the locals that gather there to drink coffee and talk of anything but politics or religion, of going for a walk and stopping at the antique shop and not worrying about the traffic that is almost non existent, going to the lake to spend a beautiful day, then you will not want to miss this place, as it was made for you. I full well expected to see aunt Bee, Barney and Sheriff Taylor stop by to chat.

Millersburg and and the Amish area are only about 35 miles away and you can eat a great meal or visit shops and pick up those items that are unavailable anywhere else, this is the place to be. There was plenty more to see and do, but truthfully I did not want to miss a day of kite flying in the back yard and playing boccie ball to do much in the line of looking for commercialization and the present day.

Lovely home for a weekend getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Hazel's house. The house was beautiful, spacious, and equipped with lots of games for kids (and adults) to play with. It was also very close to Tappan Lake Park, which is a scenic park where we went hiking. Access to a washer and dryer would have been an added bonus, but we still had an excellent time without it.

Lovely Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at Hazel's House, and absolutely loved it! The home is so charming and cozy. It was just like spending the weekend at a friends house. Oh, and the steam shower was amazing!! What a wonderful weekend away for us, as well as our two dogs. Thank you for sharing, and we hope to stay again!

Absolute blast...just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away for a time, to relax, to reflect, to reconnect with yourself, this is the place. Myself, my wife, our two year old, two friends, a dog all stayed for two nights at this gorgeous home. Totally reminded us of an old-fashioned farm house and the perfect getaway from the city (of Pittsburgh).

Don't be deterred by the videos that show it right on the street. It's not very busy and extremely quiet, if that is what you are looking for. The rooms are all immense, stunningly decorated and have a quaint southern/Texan/farm feel. Made us feel right at home. The kitchen is spacious, has everything and more of what you need.

The bathroom is for sure the highlight - a steam room and shower all in one. Plus the floor tiles are heated! There is an excellent backyard where both the dog and our child ran around and had tons of fun. We played bocce, drank wine, grilled, and had fun on the back deck. Another huge plus was the hot tub out back.

Added bonus - the house is right next to the general store where you can literally get anything you might have forgotten as well as gas and ice cream. Of course, not to mention the house is a 5 min drive from the lake where we went hiking, swam and played on the beach.

Would do this again in a hot minute. Just a very special place that is clearly cared for with love and history. Highly recommended!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time and especially loves the selection of games. We made lots of awesome memories. The backyard was perfect for our dog and the porch swings was always occupied. Thank you for sharing your home!
