Tucked away in southern Ohio's Appalachian foothills sits the United Plant Savers Sanctuary. When I first pulled up to the property, I could tell there are a lot of big and exciting things happening here. Firstly, I stopped by my room in the unsuspecting green barn and settled in. It was very clean with two made up twin beds with nightstands and desk lamps, a dresser with space to put my things as well as extra blankets, reading materials, maps, and stickers from UpS! Ginger (the friendliest cat on the planet) greeted me in the barn upon my arrival. I picked up the reading materials on my nightstand and noticed a trail map with a detailed layout of the property. This place is not only great for getting away from the hustle of life, but goes the extra mile in providing a retreat like atmosphere filled with opportunities for hiking in Ohio's beautiful rolling hills, swimming (and rope swinging), bon-firing under a starry Ohio sky, exploring nature, wildlife viewing, dock lounging, paddling, an extensive amount of fascinating plant education, and more. I enjoyed hiking the large trail system of hilly Appalachian terrain and reading all about the nature on the property via the plant labeled trail blazes (written on slate--super cool!). Some of my favorite parts of the property were the Appalachian views, lounging on the dock at the heart shaped pond (seriously relaxing), observing all the cool rock formations, and seeing all the Appalachian streams trickle down the hillside into the small waterfall at the base of the property. After a day of hiking, I wandered into the small river town of Pomeroy and explored the nice bike/walking path along the scenic Ohio river, then headed over to Maple Lawn Brewery for a beer (great atmosphere, great beer). It was a chilly night, so it was nice to have the option of using the baseboard heat to warm my room up before bed. Also--the hot showers were a bonus.

I look forward to staying here again in the future as the UpS sanctuary is committed to restoring and preserving Ohio's natural beauty. I noticed some construction going on at the base of the property for a future welcome center. Also, a quick walk up the hillside will take you to a beautiful yurt open to campers to enjoy (super peaceful, take off your shoes!). I hope many others will discover this Appalacian gem and experience the serene beauty of Ohio at the United Plant Savers Sanctuary.

A unique spot in a beautiful location. Lodging sparse but perfect. I took a lot of pictures. Looking forward to visiting again when I have more time.
