2Br, 2 Bathroom, with King Master Suite sleeps 4-6 with Futon
My wife, my parents and I bought this cozy cabin in the spring of 2013. It is a beautiful place on an amazing piece of property. With life becoming so fast paced and stressful we felt this would be a perfect place for people to get away from those stresses and unwind.
Randy purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Randy chose Butler
Our Family has been visiting the Mohican area for over 25 years. This area is so beautiful and has so much to do and see but does not offer much in the way of luxury lodging. Most of the cabins in this area are very rustic and not very comfortable. We wanted to create a cabin that does have a rustic feel, but wanted to blend it with modern amenities and create a luxurious place to enjoy the down time after exploring this wonderful area.
What makes this Cabin unique
The best way to describe this home and property is comfortable and most of all peaceful. The cabin is located on a quiet country road far from traffic and noise. It is just amazing to sit on the patio or in the hot tub and stare into the pine forest. Even more amazing are the stars at night. The cabin is far enough from any larger town so there is very little light to mask the brightness of the stars. The world has become a very bright place and the stars have suffered for it. The cabin will make you appreciate them like you did when you were a kid!

We were here for Mid-Ohio but would like to come back again and experience other sites around the home. The roads are very fun out there!
Very relaxing & clean
Well maintained & perfect setting
Very nice cabin. Owner very helpful!
Nice little getaway
The cabin is great. Nice a cozy, well-maintained and clean. It was nice to not have wifi and play board games and enjoy our time with our 13-year old. Ski resort is only 15 minutes away so that was convenient. The one thing that was problematic was the thermostat. The owner must have it set to go down to 63 degrees at night. We awoke in the middle of the night feeling very cold. I had to turn it up to 70, and it took 40 minutes for the temperature to get up to 70. So, a piece of feedback for the owner would be to have the temperatures ‘hard set’ like that when the cabin is unoccupied for energy purposes, but when guests are going to stay there, remove that setting and let the guest set the thermostat to what they find most comfortable. Other than this, we had a great stay!
Thank you for the great comments. Regarding the thermostat, I am very sorry you had issues and just to let you know it has been replaced. We have used an Alarm.com thermostat for years but had it damaged. I replaced it with a NEST thermostat and had nothing but problems. You are actually lucky because with several guests it not only turned down it tripped the breaker completely turning off the system. As I mentioned I have gone back to an Alarm.com thermostat (a newer model than before) and haven't had one issue since. Again very sorry for the problems you experienced.
Serene New Year’s Getaway
Great cabin nestled in the quiet woods of Butler. When we stepped outside to enjoy a fire in the fire pit or the hot tub, the surrounding woods were completely silent. So relaxing! We even spotted a deer in the woods one evening. There was plenty of places to take our dog for a hike in the woods. The amenities were great and clean and well taken care of. Our only complaint would be the size of the second bedroom (where we slept). It was pretty cramped. We had plenty of cookware to help us make all of our food for New Year’s Eve. A strong windstorm came into the area one evening knocking out the utilities for the night. Kudos to the owner (Randy) for contacting us to keep us informed on the progress of the electric company. He even offered for us to stay at another property of his until the utilities got turned back on. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would rent from this owner again. Thanks Randy!
This rental was very clean and complete. The patio and hot tub were nice.
We enjoyed the large family and kitchen area. My husband and I stayed two nights with two of our grandchildren and found the cabin to be very comfortable. When our son, daughter in law, and a teenage grandson arrived, we were a little cramped. Next time, we'll also request the bunk house. The large hot tub was really nice but we couldn't turn it off. We had to turn off the circuit breaker to shut it off. The igniter did not work on the grill but with a complete kitchen, we had many frying pans and other items to use. Although the wicker patio chairs were damaged, there was plenty of outdoor seating with a picnic table and other chairs.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at Whispering Pines. I understand it can get a little cramped with that large of a group. I wish you would of contacted me, the bunkhouse could of been added to your reservation.
Regarding the hot tub, it is normal for the hot tub to run by itself. It runs to clean and to heat itself and if you turn it off it will resume it's cycle in a few minutes.
The grill is a constant challenge to keep the igniter working but we do supply a long lighter to light the burners if it is malfunctioning. Sorry it wasn't working for you but thanks for letting me know.
Also sorry about the wicker chair, as you noted, we recently added new chairs and although they were a little rough the wicker chairs were still functional at that time and I didn't notice they were damaged prior to your visit.
