Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky - Away at Green Hill - Ever wanted your own private park? Now offering a Mini Outdoor Getaway with Unique Shelter.

Winter Rate, Private, Unique, Not to far away from anything.   

Book private day-use use of our 1840's log house 30 minutes from Cincinnati. Surrounded by forest on a ridgetop, privacy is yours. This Boone County Historical Register 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. A wood, serving table is present. Food can be warmed on the top of the stove. The second floor is open and has a table for seating with log chairs. Wrap-around porch with wooden rocking chairs, benches, and tables. Sit and enjoy the view.

Grass surrounds the cabin which includes a picnic table and fire ring. Beyond that is a forest that, in the fall and winter gives you a unique view 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; it's 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.

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.

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