Venture down the winding driveway lined with trees until you happen upon this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom vacation rental cabin that sleeps 6 in Amherst. This hidden gem rests on 7.5 wooded acres and offers easy access to local attractions, with a rustic-yet-updated living space to return to after each adventure. Enjoy a getaway filled with late night s'mores, early morning coffee and fresh farm eggs on the wraparound porch, and days hiking around the Vermilion river below.
Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed
Discover a bit of the great outdoors from this expansive 2,650-square-foot cabin with charming fireplaces and large windows, allowing for ample natural light and unobstructed views, and beautiful wood accents throughout.
Relax in the great room where you can warm up by the brick fireplace or check the news on the flat-screen TV above.
The gathering area flows into the fully equipped kitchen, where you can cook for a crowd with ease on the updated appliances and ample granite counter space. Guests can oversee the action from the breakfast bar and sneak a taste before the meal is served. Farm fresh eggs provided by 5 resident chickens is the perfect way to start each morning!
After enjoying a hearty feast from the magnificent wood dining table, venture outside to enjoy the sunset peeking through the trees from the comfort of the wraparound deck or lower-level patio. Once night descends, you can bring the marshmallows and chocolate to the fire pit in the backyard to end the evening on a sweet note.
The living area is filled with plenty of cozy couches so everyone can enjoy a movie night on the flat-screen TV when it's time to wind down. When eyes begin to droop, send the kids up to the second floor where they can choose between two rooms, each with a queen bed and private balcony access. The master bedroom features a plush king bed and en-suite bath for a night of peace and privacy.
You'll have plenty to do right on this expansive Amherst property, with endless outdoor adventures awaiting your stay! Take a walk down to the Vermilion River just below the house and relax by the water.
Outside of the property and just across the street, you’ll find the Peasley Poor Farm where you can go blueberry picking! If you don't want your fingers stained blue, drive 4 minutes around the bend to Miller's Orchard, where you'll get the chance to pick cherries, apples, peaches, and plums! After a day spent picking, Miller's Homemade Ice Cream offers the perfect way to treat yourself just around the corner.
Trade cherry trees for something stronger when you drive 10 minutes over to Vermilion Valley Vineyards! Here you can sip on world-class wines, sustainably farmed on the beautiful vineyard surrounding the venue.
35 minutes away on Sandusky Bay sits Cedar Point Amusement Park and is sure to thrill – or catch one of the island ferries to Put-In-Bay or Kelleys Island for day or nighttime fun for all ages. Visit Catawba Island to book a charter boat or explore Mon Ami historic winery. Nearby Port Clinton is home to the unforgettable Cheese Haven, and African wildlife safari.
Less than 20 minutes away are the cities of Vermilion and Oberlin. Drive north to experience the beautiful lakeside community of Vermilion, that many have come to call the 'crowning jewel of the south shore' with its quaint downtown and Vermilion-on-the-Lake event center. If you head south, you'll quickly fall in love with the charming town of Oberlin, which is a small college town filled with that local touch that makes Ohio communities so special. Just outside of Oberlin are Common Ground zipline canopy tours.
