Great hidden gem
Melissa was a great host and made the entire experience effortless and enjoyable! The property was beautiful and well maintained with everything you need. Host was communicating, friendly and accommodating. Close to CVNP and local grocery stores (we went to Mustard Seed Market) for convenience. Would highly recommend!

What a perfect, cozy cabin a couple miles out from the National Park. Honestly I was extremely pleased with the cabin, amenities, fire pit, etc. Could not thank Melissa enough!

Great hospitality & beautiful spot
We loved our stay at this cabin. The spot was gorgeous in the fall! Melissa was very hospitable, proving fresh flowers, firewood, drinking water, and a big selection of tea. The fire pit is great, very large with a movable grate for cooking. We saw a family of five deer in the morning!

Becoming my second home!
I have stayed here probably half a dozen times so far and each visit has been great. I am a country boy at heart living in the middle of the city so this place is the perfect getaway without having to travel too far. Looking forward to many more stays in the future. Thanks again Melissa!

Starry night at the fire pit.
We LOVED this place! We had a beautiful fire in the pit while we listened to the baseball game on the radio, and looked at the stars above the fall trees. It was chilly, but we were not cold under our electric blanket. We will definitely stay here again!!!! Fabulous tea collection.

Being in the woods at Melissa's cabin is a wonderful experience. It is very peaceful and serene. It is especially scenic this time of year with the leaves changing colors. Everything on the listing was accurate, and I enjoyed the extra touches like the fire pit and heated blankets to stay warm on a chilly evening!

Great cabin with everything you need, very close to the park, a little near the road but it was quiet at night. Melissa was a great host and even provided a heated blanket and hot chocolate for us since it was a cold night. Would stay again!

Cozy cabin, beautiful spot
This is the perfect place to find sanctuary! Beautiful cabin in the woods but not too far off the highway. I was so grateful for the easy directions to get myself to bed after a 10 hours of driving.

Thank You!
Melissa left excellent directions. There is a bit of a hilly path away from the parking area to get to the cabin. Her place is just as described, with clean linens, and complimentary water and tea. It is rustic in the woods with a fire pit and wood. As to be expected with the heat it was humid but had a good fan. She was an excellent host and was available if we needed anything.

Melissa was a great host and the cabin is truly charming! So many thoughtful touches, like water bottles and a tea kettle and fan, to make our stay very comfortable. Comfy bed, clean outhouse, beautiful property. No complaints!

Can't recommend enough!
Gorgeous place to rest our heads! When we arrived the cabin had some windows open, a fan going, some chocolates and even an umbrella lovingly left as there was rain in the forecast. It was too damp for a fire but there was a beautiful fire pit and outdoor chairs available. Latrine was clean and stocked. A welcome & beautiful place to stay while exploring CVNP over the weekend.

Wonderful Place
It was a pleasant stay. Easy location to find, tucked away in the woods surrounded by trees, had everything that was listed, plenty of fire wood, and a clean environment. Would definitely stay again. Anyone that says the sound of traffic was annoying doesn’t know how to enjoy themselves. Literally barely noticed it.

Staying in Melissa's cabin was great! It was very private, surrounded by trees, our own little oasis. Close to Cuyahoga Valley National Park for hiking, and Akron for groceries, etc. Lots of nice little touches too -- there is tea and a hot water heater in the cabin, she let us know about possible construction on our route, etc.

the cabin was very cozy and stayed cool even though it was very hot and humid out. the forest surrounding it was so beautiful! this is a great place to stay if you are an inexperienced camper as melissa made sure to stock the cabin and outhouse with the necessities, we actually ended up overpacking because everything was already there waiting for us lol

What a lovely cabin and lovely spot to spend the night. Next time I'd bring earplugs as it is right next to a busy road and the neighbors have a Rooster.

Beautiful property. Will definitely be staying again. Had a great time cooking breakfast over the campfire as her fire pit had a nice built in grill top. The small shelter is beautiful and the heater is plenty warm to heat up the space at night if needed.

Great Getaway! Biking was fun
awesome get away! We were looking for a local weekend getaway and this cabin was perfect. It’s very close to the tow path, so we biked to Szalay’s and the Winking Lizard. So fun!

Nice place/grounds & well situated
Melissa, had a really cute cabin and the local setup (fire pit, outhouse, etc.) was advertised. Really easy to find, too. It’s located miles away from the National Park. Great location. My only heads up is that it’s located near a fairly busy road, especially on a nice weekend (people heading to the National Park). So, if you’re looking for a quiet place in the woods, this may not be the best set up.

We enjoyed the cedar cabin during our time in Ohio. My favorite parts were late-night fires and waking up in a forest bedroom, with dappled tree reflections all around me. So beautiful and serene. There were more amenities than I realized, with a grill and fire pit grate for cooking, so help to the self-catering traveler. Thank you for all the thoughtful comfort in the cabin as well: tea, fan, electric stove.

Beautiful cabin amidst trees!
The cedar cabin was extremely well thought of and it made sure to provide an excellent camping experience for us during a pitstop on our road trip! The cabin itself was very comfortable and we also enjoyed campfire right outside the cabin. The pit toilet was clean and is at a couple of minutes walking distance from the cabin. The only feedback is that we didn't have access to wash hands which was supposed to be provided. However, we made use of the drinking water that we were provided to use for hand wash and brushing. Proximity of this cabin to Cuyahoga Valley National park was a great advantage since we also did a good hike to Blue Hen waterfall!

This was a beautiful small cabin with large bed, heated blanket, and great indoor decor. The cabin windows are suited for both cooling off the interior when its hot and trapping the heat in the cold. The surrounding yard of small trails and fire pits is lovely - all around an amazing place to stay!
