Come out and unwind from the stress of your everyday life to this small, intimate cottage/cabin. Sitting only feet from a babbling creek, this is an ideal retreat for a couple. The cabin has  a full size memory foam mattress, wood floors, and is half timber/half canvas.

This cabin is part of the Viking Longhall Campground, a 5 acre campground set in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

The field is close enough to the Appalachian highway (state route 32) for convenience but far enough not to be bothered by it. The area is steeped in Native American culture. In fact, the world famous Serpent Mound is but 8 miles away, with many other Adena culture sites within easy driving distance. It's also in the heart of the Amish community.

The area is known for its natural beauty with many hiking trails and canoeing opportunities.

The cabin comes complete with everything you will need: bedding, pots, pans,  crockery, utensils, candles, lamps, coolers, a grill, water, firewood, benches, chairs, and towels. Just grab your clothes, food and beverages and head out here for some much needed R and R.

Please be aware this is a rural area and as such you will encounter nature. We cannot be responsible for the woodland creatures you may encounter. Recently we have had people complaining because of flying squirrels, raccoons and even a wasp. We live in their environment and as such we must adapt. We are very proud and protective of the many different and varied creatures living on the 5 acres that make up the campground.

David is SO hospitable!

Everything was essentially provided upon arrival so if you forgot to pack something they had you covered. The cabin/cottage itself was very quaint and cozy.

This stay was, in our opinion, the optimal way to camp with the necessities to make you more comfortable!

We will definitely be returning.

What didn’t go well? It was like a dream come true… And the hosts were so very kind and thoughtful everything from fresh flowers to homemade muffins and hot coffee in the morning… We felt like we were pioneers yet we felt very accommodated for every need… It was just stellar!!

The entire site is beautiful and David is an incredible host! We stayed in the Creekside Cottage and it was furnished with everything you could need for a perfect stay. The fire was ready for us when we got there and David met with us to show the entire campground. The entire campsite is breathtaking and accommodating, with plenty to do and plenty to see. We will definitely be returning in the future and highly recommend The Viking Longhall to anyone looking for a magical getaway! Thank you David for the wonderful experience!

This was our 2nd stay at the Creekside
Cottage. David is a wonderful host. He is knowledgeable about the area, is lovely to talk to, and is one of the most thoughtful people we have encountered. We were looking forward to our return to the grounds and had fun exploring the hiking trails, House of Phacops, and town nearby. There is a lot of love at the Viking Longhall and it is evident in every detail. Thank you again, we look forward to returning once more.

The cabin is such a delight. Loved the little bit of privacy from the larger space while still being around others. One of my favorite parts of the stay was snuggling in bed while listening to the rain in the trees one morning. Had everything we needed for the weekend. Also really enjoyed the space all lit up with candles!

David’s property is a magical spot. As a guest, you get to enjoy nature while still having hot water and coffee in the morning. The biggest takeaway from our trip were the good vibes in the space and from David himself. We can’t wait to go back.
