About Brian Davis

Some of the most memorable moments in our lives have taken place while traveling, relaxing on a retreat, or while gathering our extended family in a rented house away from the world of the everyday. When the opportunity to purchase this property came up we recognized immediately how much potential it had to offer this experience to others. As a couple we enjoy providing you with a fantastic and unique place to rest, cook, eat, laugh and make great memories with family and friends.

Angel is a graduate of Columbus College of Art and Design and has taught children's art lessons from a home studio for 20 years. Brian is the owner and CEO of Directions Counseling Group in Worthington which employs 17 professional therapists specializing in a wide variety of concerns. We live within walking distance of this rental property and both enjoy meeting new people and making a one-of-a-kind experience for our guests.

Brian Davis purchased this house in 2014

Most Incredible Place You Will Ever Stay

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't even do the house justice. It is a beautiful place. I rented it for my family for the weekend of my wedding. We were able to have family

meals and host both sides. Brian had everything there for us. The house has speakers that can play music even outside around the whole house. It had a basketball court, a jacuzzi, a pond with a canoe, I playground for the kids. It really is too much to describe in words. This house is so amazing that we almost canceled our honeymoon to try to stay in the house another week. If you book this place you will not go wrong. It isn't a huge space and you have your privacy. The only thing is I didn't have much reception with T-Mobile so I just stood on the wifi. Brian and his wife are fantastic. She even made us a welcome sign! This is the best house in Ohio you could ever rent! Even if you were staying somewhere further, this is worth the drive!

Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

I would not have changed a thing about this retreat! Beautiful, clean, spacious, convenient, and the owner was extremely helpful! Already making plans to go back next year! There are so many things that I love about this place. From the pond to the comfort of the beds, everything was fantastic!

This place is incredible!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year staying at this house. It is even better than the pictures. It has great amenities. The location is ideal with a grocery store 5 minutes down the street. The owners are fantastic & very accommodating. The outside is unbelievable with an outdoor kitchen, relaxing grounds, beautiful pond you can swim & fish in that is very clean. The house is technologically amazing, with surround sound system & other great features through the house. We have a great time every year & look forward to coming back. Can't recommend this place enough!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week there with kids and grandkids. Everyone had a great time and used all of the amenities at the house including, the trampoline, pond, disk golf, hot tub, canoe, etc. a good time was had by all.

We were particularly impressed by the owner Brian, who went above and beyond during a minor glitch on our last day. Thank you for your attention to our needs.

The house and grounds are truly spectacular.

Nice house, ridiculous rules, hovering owner

  • 2 of 5

The property was very nice and well accommodated. However, the owner was at the house for over an hour going over the "rules". After her explained everything, he left. Then, unannounced he walked right back in to the house. The rules were far reaching. If you broke a glass, he would not only charge you with the replacement, but for gas and his time to buy a new one. This house was not cheap by any means and I felt this was ridiculous. My daughter left a swimsuit and he charged $20 to take it to the post office. He said we would receive a check for our deposit within a couple of days and we have not received it yet. No animals were allowed but his large dog appeared on the back porch when I stepped outside with my granddaughter. She is 3 and became very frightened. I had to carry her back into the house. The owner was hovering for the 2 days we were there. We are a family of 8 adults and 4 children, we were not going to have wild parties! He lives basically on the back of the property and is always around. Would never stay there again!

Owner's Response: After getting fifty-one 5-star reviews on this site and thirteen more on another major rental website, it is humbling to get a negative and angry review. Our goal is to have every one of our guests wanting to come back, but bottom line, we failed on this one. While we strongly disagree with the particulars of this harsh review, a tit-for-tat rebuttal is not something we wish to get involved in in this forum. Instead we are revamping some of our policies and procedures to help assure no one leaves feeling this way again. For example, we are now strongly encouraging guests to leave feedback for us by email early on, or at any time during their stay if there is anything at all unpleasant about their experience or anything they need from us. Our previous reviews attest that we are kind, accommodating, and responsive people. There is no reason to wait until the end of the stay to express that there is a problem. Most, if not all, of the problems this guest had would have been averted with a little straightforward communication with us. If you are considering staying in our home but have concerns about this review, here are some suggestions to make sure we are a good fit for you: 1) see our previous and future reviews to see how the vast majority of guests experience us (at present on two sites 64 out of 68 were 5-star reviews, four 4-stars and this 2-star); 2) contact us directly if you have concerns or questions about this particular review as it relates to a potential stay in our home. We’d be happy to discuss it from our quite different point of view; 3) be sure to read the contract and ask questions if you have concerns about the house rules/policies before signing it. We are confident that our future reviews will continue to be overwhelmingly positive as we provide a positive and relaxing experience for our guests in a unique setting. While we are resisting arguing the specifics here, we do think it is important to note “his large dog” referred to in this negative review was likely our neighbor’s friendly but wayward golden lab. Our family dog passed away in late May and we have never had a single complaint about any dogs in the 2.5 years of renting the house, but of course will check in with the neighbors about this to prevent recurrences. Happy travels!
