Our primitive cabin nestled in the woods overlooking the Grand River is a nature-lover's paradise! Come canoe, fish, experience wine country, or unplug and just get away from it all. Please note: There is no running water or electricity at the site, but the cabin is generator-ready and there is an outhouse. 

The cabin does have a wood burning stove for heat and simple cooking, however there is no running water or electricity.  That being said, the building is wired and has plugs and outlets and is generator-ready.  You provide your own generator and fuel.  We provide bottled water, sheets, pillows, flashlights, a coleman lantern and fuel, a fire ring with cooking grate, charcoal grill (you provide the charcoal), access to firewood, and an outhouse with toilet paper.  Our 1/4 mile of Grand River frontage can be accessed right outside the cabin door via a quick hike down the hillside.  If hiking isn't preferred, then a quick two-minute drive will take you to the Harpersfield Covered Bridge Metropark - a favorite of local fishermen.  Bigger groups with tents are welcome, but will need to bring all supplies beyond what we provide for two guests. 

Find us on Facebook under Hemlock Hideaway for up-to-date information.

Tiny cabin in the woods overlooking gorgeous River. Private and cozy, perfect for 1 or 2. Great sights to see within 10-15 minutes of surrounding area. Highly recommend!!! Would stay again.

Beautiful place! Spent the night all the way from Philadelphia. We definitely want to come back sometime soon to explore more of Lake Erie.

This was honestly one of our favorite vacations! Lisa was amazing! She went above and beyond with little things that made our stay comfortable, like offering an extra camp chair, hot coffee and pumpkin bread in the morning, and detailed directions to some sites we told her we wanted to see. Every detail was thought of, from citronella candles to fairy lights that made the cabin lovely and romantic! The location is perfect. It’s quiet and secluded but also very close to wineries and Lake Erie. We enjoyed venturing out during the day and coming home to grill and make a fire at night. It was just magical. 💗

Hemlock Hideaway was the perfect spot for a weekend away. The cabin was well maintained and very clean. The loft beds are pretty high but were comfortable. The site was quiet and very private.
Lisa was a great host, very accessible. She messaged us on our check in day to tell us she was done cleaning and we could check in early which was very helpful.
