Bending Oak Farm is an educational farm on 25 formerly clear cut acres. We are committed to our mission creating a more sustainable world by showing people what is possible. Through classes, workshops, school tours, community programs and hands-on experiences, we look to demonstrate attainable practices to better the lives of all people. We invite you to come and experience how you can create a more sustainable life for you, your family, friends and your community. To ensure an environment that is family friendly and mitigate the risk of injury Bending Oak does not permit alcoholic beverages or recreational drugs at the farm. Guests who stay in one of our permaculture cabins are participating in a permaculture design process where the goal is to create a system of abundance. During your stay, you will be challenged to think differently about how you go about meeting your daily needs. By design, you will encounter limits to the typical expectations of your living space, which grants you the opportunity to think deeply about what really is important to you and join us in exploring effective possibilities in meeting these expectations. After all, necessity is the mother of invention. This is our first study of building a sustainable living environment. We started with a blank slate, a new system designed with the permaculture principles in mind and the intention of ultimately creating a living space with the creature comforts we have all grown accustomed to. Eventually we will be building the next round of accommodations (principal: Small & Slow Solutions). When staying in one of our cabins, you are participating in this process by sharing with us your experience (principal: Observe & Interact), letting us know what you have discovered you can and can not live without, and possible solutions to efficiently address those needs and wants (principal: Apply Self Regulation & Accept Feedback).  We look forward to your stay with us and your participation in creating abundance in this living space!

Large Blue Cabin with Bathroom
We had a great stay at bending oak. The owners have built this permaculture farm from scratch and it is amazing what they have accomplished. The cabin itself is clean and well maintained. Do bring your sheets though! I must give a shout out to Carol. She went above and beyond to fix a booking issue that we had because messages were not going through and offered to compensate with a night’s stay. Highly recommend!

#1 - Walk-in Campsite
Environmentally Friendly Oasis
So happy to have found Bending Oak's! Anna is a great host! She answered all of my questions, was super responsive as well as accommodating to our needs. The cabin and bathrooms were super clean (and a bonus for us and the eco system, they provide you with organic bodywash, shampoo & conditioner). I definitely recommend this lush oasis if you need a place to stay not far from I-80, or even if you just need a place in Ohio! 😉 All of that and they are very environmentally conscious ☺️✌🏼🙏🏻
