Fruitdale Farm was founded in 2016. The property consists of 15+ acres, about half which is wooded, located off a quiet country backroad in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Ohio. As a farmstead, we are guided by sustainable practices and our goal is to become a sustainability learning and retreat center. We are still just getting things off the ground and we love sharing the land with others who appreciate the outdoors and all that this area has to offer. We currently have one [tiny] cabin rental and 4 designated camping sites.
Little Fern Guest Cabin
This quaint, little (8x12') off-grid guest cabin was once a donkey shed on a farm located about 8 miles away. Tucked back in a cluster of cedar and locust trees, the cabin, although not far from the road, is somewhat secluded and is partly shaded in the summer. It is well insulated and has plenty of windows. The cabin offers a full-sized comfy bed with fresh linens, a large dresser, a desk, chair, bookcase and solar electricity. A covered porch with two comfy chairs is perfect for sitting and sipping at any point in the day. Just a couple steps from the porch is a screened-in gazebo kitchen with a 3-burner propane stove and all of the essential cookware for preparing a full meal. Local spring water is provided for drinking. A simple outhouse with a composting toilet is located in the trees beyond the pond (about 75m away). A second bathroom with hot shower is available at the host residence (about 75m away).
There is a comnunal fire ring and picnic table down by the pond. The pond has a little dock and is great for swimming on hot days.

Affordable getaway, with comfort.
The host was attentive to all my questions (which were a lot), She has everything you need and explains everything. My friend a I were the only guests there, so our fur babies were able to run free , and play. The additional bathroom at the host residence was perfect to wash up, and nice for extra privacy , if you need it. I will definitely book again.
Comfy & cozy lil country cabin
Quiet & tiny a bit more traffic during evening & closer to Rd than we expected but cabin was very cute & clean. Frogs & birds were our only companions. The gazebo kitchen was well stocked & had all the essentials & the lil porch area was nice to relax & enjoy a country evening. We enjoyed the sunset!
