Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky - Historic Shelter for Day Gatherings

Private, Unique, Not too far away from anything for family outings, birthdays, reunions, friend getaways, tiny weddings. We've even hosted a movie shoot!

Book private day-use use of our 1840's log house 30 minutes from Cincinnati. No overnights at this time - but can be paired with our Away at Green Hill camping sites; see hipcamp listing.) 

Surrounded by forest on a ridgetop, privacy is yours. This Boone County Historical Registered structure is "unchinked" meaning the gaps between the logs have not been filled. So, while you are sheltered from the elements, it allows for light, air, and ambient temperatures to flow through. Perfect for the folks who want a little nature - but not too much!

The first floor is one large open room with a soapstone wood burning stove providing radiant heat. Food can be warmed on the top of the stove. A wood, serving table is present. The second floor is open and has a table for seating with log chairs. Wrap-around porch with wooden rocking chairs, benches, and tables. 

Grass surrounds the cabin which includes a picnic table and fire ring. Beyond that is a forest that, in the fall and winter allows for expansive views of the surrounding hilltops; in the spring and summer, its lush and green. Wide walking paths circle the ridge top for easy strolls that lead right back to the cabin. Hiking "light" can be found on the Great Googly Moogly Trail that dips into the forest, a mostly easy trail except for a very short, steep section at the entrance.

Short-walk from main parking area (250'). Can drive and park one or two cars directly at the cabin to deliver supplies or people. Sparkling clean outhouse located near the parking area approximately 500' away.

You provide everything else you need: food, drinks, etc. Clean up as you found it.

I booked Away at Green Hill (Open Sky and Day Shelter) for my 40th birthday party and had the most amazing celebration. The property itself is gorgeous and the guests had fun doing all the different actives (whether setting up games, hiking around the beautiful trails on the property, or sitting quietly on the cabin porch). The hosts are the most amazing people I've ever met and think of the smallest details to make the camping/celebration memorable (the lanterns, the outhouse decorations, the map of the property, etc.). I'm so glad that I chose this as the location for my party. Everyone who attended had a great time. Party guests even took advantage of the close proximity to Rabbit Hash and Big Bone and made a whole weekend of the party. I'm so glad that the hosts have opened up their home to outside guests and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a celebration, just a quiet night camping, or is visiting the area and wants something more than a boring Florence hotel room. I can't say enough about it and my gratitude for such a beautiful setting.

We booked the cabin for an annual all girls gathering. It was perfect. The setting was peaceful and the cabin was unique and beautiful. There was plenty of seating for our group. We enjoyed some of the trails through the woods near the cabin as well. We will definitely visit again.

Loved our day at the cabin! Teri and Mike are the best. We spend the day with friends at the shelter and then camped overnight elsewhere on the property. We’ve been out before but this was our first time renting the day-cabin. It was a perfect meet up with some old and new friends. Would come back anytime.

The area was perfect for a evening of entertaining friends for my husband’s birthday. Everyone had a great time & we plan to come back here every year . So many neat features & amenities. It made party planning so easy. It’s a beautiful oasis close to home. You will not be disappointed!

The perfect location for a picnic and a day of hiking, sightseeing, watching the birds and other wildlife.
While we were here, we also had the opportunity to witness the 17 year cicadas, flying about from tree to tree.
By far one of the cleanest, if not the cleanest location for a day enjoying many of Mother Natures many wonders.

Absolutely stunning. We filmed a short film here and could not ask for a more ideal setting or more accommodating hosts. Teri and Mike were very supportive and flexible. If you’re looking for a place to make art - look no further.

Sorry for the delayed review. The holidays and all. The cabin site was beautiful. Driving in was pretty easy, we turned off the country road onto the gravel road and went up. We did drive just past the driveway up to your property but realized it quickly and turned around. Driving in, through the trees into that beautiful private area just set us in the right mood. Once we got to the site we couldn't believe how awesome it was. It was so idyllic I didn't even want my car there. We did park it out of view. We unpacked and set up, got the fire started quickly. The night was cold but the extra wood we bought was great - thanks for delivering it to the site. We took a night hike into the field and then down around to the pond. It was so dark we had to use our headlamps - perfect. Near the pond we heard two owls calling each other. My wife says they were barred owls. We cooked and had a great sleep. The next morning we lounged in, made coffee, pancakes and eggs. We had a morning walk around the property. The outhouse was the nicest we've ever seen; simple, didn't expect or need much but it surprised us. Thanks again. We hope to come back in early spring and watch the trees bloom. And - It was nice to meet you two. Its always better staying as guests at a place where the hosts are actually super nice. We left a little gift for you in the cabin.

Found feather on leaf near pond.View of back of cabin.  The front is even more beautiful.Wrap around porch.  Sunset at the pond.
