This property has been in the family since 1967. My grandfather bought it so that his 6 kids could have a place to romp and play in a country setting on the weekends, as their home base was in the city. What was lovingly called "The Old Farm" has many memories written into the trails and trees. Now owned by my father, his desire is to revitalize many of the family traditions and keep the original purpose of the land alive. Oddly enough, I married someone who used to live in apartments that used to be at the front of the property (where the campers/tiny house are now parked). My husband also played in these woods and has cherished memories here as a child. Now we share all this land has to offer with our own three children and as many friends and family who want to join in on the fun. We are excited to extend the invitation to you, as well. That invitation is to step away from wherever you call "home" and immerse yourself in nature. Be a kid again. Get a little lost. Return to the basics of good, old-fashioned fun. We hope you enjoy this place as much as we do!

Birthday Glamping
What a nice place! We felt like we had the entire woods to ourselves. Our dogs loved swimming in the pond and we even found the treehouse. There is so much space! It was the perfect way for our family to spend my birthday weekend! The kids had a blast. By the way we got a nearly perfect signal on Verizon- enough to listen to the OSU game around the fire.

A Taste of the Tiny Life
The tiny house is beautiful and Jamie has provided everything you could need. There was even coffee! Just bring some food and your clothing. The property is beautiful and it was so relaxing spending the weekend unplugged from the Internet. (Although the cell reception was great, just no wifi which was just fine by me!) I can’t wait to go back!

Fun Family Camping 🏕
We loved this spot! Had a great time walking the trails, fishing in the pond, relaxing by the fire, cooking & making s’mores while admiring the nature around us 😊 A great experience for our daughter’s first time! We will be back for sure!

A lovely weekend
We loved staying at Jamie’s site! We had two kids with us (7 yr old and 2 yr old) and while the land is kind of hilly we didn’t have any problems walking around and exploring. We followed the little trail map picture on our phone and found the pond, the treehouse and were able to easily find our way back. There was a storage tub full of supplies under the bed (hand saw, lighter, trash bags) and there was even a storage tub outside with dry fire wood in it, which was great because it did rain a little while we were there. We met with Jamie just for a quick chat before we headed into town and she invited us to come over to their RV later which was really nice! We ended up spending quite a bit of time down at the pond though and by the time we walked back to the camp site the kids were exhausted and we were all asleep by 9pm 😅 We are hoping to go back sometime in the summer so the kids can play in the creek!

Peaceful and Private
We had a fantastic weekend at Cozy Clearing! Having the site already set up for us made everything easier and more enjoyable. We got extremely lucky with the weather which enabled us to really explore the property with our dog. We'll be booking again for a fall trip!

Relaxing in the Woods
We had a lovely stay at the tiny house! The weather was a bit dreary but it was nice to have some peace and quite away from the hustles and bustles of home. Very relaxing. Most everything you would need to cook is provided. The heat works fantastic. The hosts were quick with responses and helpful in their replys. We will definitely be bookmarking!

What an AMAZING home and host!!!
What an amazing Tiny Home and location. Every morning and night we were able to watch deer come into the clearing a feed for about an hour. Home was better then expected, all the comforts of home. Host was behind helpful and accommodating. Only downside was it rained the whole time so we were unable to use the hiking trails, this just means we will have to return in the spring!

Our stay at Cozy Clearing on the Hill was great! The greeting upon arrival and taxi service for our gear to and from camp was awesome! The firewood, stove in the tent, water, and outdoor toilet all made the stay require less work and made it much more enjoyable! Will be back as we loved the view of the stars and access to trails on the property.

Lovely, Warm & Dry
My time here was delightful! We had a very warm welcome, and found the campsite to live up to its name! The firewood that was provided was very helpful, and it was nice to have a camp stove in the tent for the cold evenings. There were 2 jugs of water waiting for us at the site, which made the stay very relaxing since we were able to make tea and hot cocoa! The opportunity to quietly explore the woods and countryside, as well as relax in a secluded place, were very appreciated.

We loved our stay here! Host was flexible and easy to contact. She answerer questions before we arrived and checked in halfway through our stay. Having a tent already set up, water, wood, and chairs made packing for our trip easier. It was about a .25 mile walk from the car to our site, and the hosts were able to bring our gear for us on an ATV. We got to hike some lovely and well maintained trails, including one that led to a pond just under a mile from the campsite. The site is thoughtful and well taken care of.

Great Spot. Wonderful Hosts.
Spot was comfortable thanks to all of the provided amenities. The ATV “luggage service” allowed us to have our cooler as well as all of our gear at a secluded site. We will definitely come back. Thank you!

Perfectly Appointed, Peaceful Spot
My husband and I camped at this spot last Saturday evening into Sunday with two friends and their dog. It was a rainy night but this spot was absolutely perfect for our needs. We were warmly greeted by the hosts upon arrival, and thought the offer to cart our belongings back on the short walk to the site was a nice touch. It is so quiet and peaceful on the grounds and we loved exploring the hiking trails between raindrops. We were delighted by a visit from Moose, a small dog who lives on the property, when he came out to enjoy the fire and guide us on our walk. We are looking forward to coming back again, especially during the colder months since the tent offers the option for heat. We were extremely impressed by all of the special details from the hosts - flowers for decor and more supplies than we ever would have expected in case we forgot anything. Truly above and beyond!
