Historic 1860’s home in quaint Deersville, Amish Country nearby, beautiful sport lakes, perfect for families, fishing, hunting. Parties and events are not allowed.
Spacious, 1 hour from Pittsburg, WiFi, SmartTV, large gourmet kitchen, shower/steam sauna, outdoor hot tub, antiques, and contemporary art and Appalachian Ohio country beauty year round. EBL-Everything but lace! Pets are permitted but must be kenneled when you’re away! Pet fee is $50/pet, two maximum.

The space
Over four generations of my family have lived in this house beginning before 1900. You can rent the entire historic home for a weekend or longer and enjoy the Ohio scenic byways and the Buckeye trail during the day, eat out in restaurants in nearby Dennison or New Philadelphia, visit Amish country or Tappan Lake Park, or create your own masterpiece in our fully furnished gourmet kitchen. This is a rare gem and perfect for families, hunters, or for weekend getaway- just you and your special love. Hazel's House sleeps 8 in four bedrooms. Please note this is the "country," and this house is rustic and old. Although we do our best to create a relaxing and special environment for you, the swallows nest in the eaves and window ledges on the porch every summer and bugs can fly in. I have taken this spring while waiting for the return of families from afar to reunite and relax in Hazel’s House to spruce up! We have added a new full bath upstairs with a luxurious soaking tub, fresh new plush towels, and in addition to our normal cleaning routine, all kitchen and bathroom surfaces and appliances are cleaned and disinfected with food grade commercial disinfectant after every guest. We want you to stay healthy and safe!

Where you’ll be

Deersville, Ohio, United States

There is no prettier place in the world for us than Deersville. Hazel's House is located in the middle of this tiny village, home to 60+ souls. If you come in the summer or fall, you might catch a live production of the Deersville Community Theater. The Deersville General Store next door offers its famous homemade ice cream and has a well stocked beer cooler, milk, eggs, bread, etc., pizza and deli counter. Clendening Lake Park and Tappan Lake Park both offer boat ramps and fishing in the spring and summer. The Marinas offer boat rentals of all types. Harrison County is renowned for deer and turkey hunting. Holmes County, home to Amish wares and antiques, is less than an hour west. We love to head into Pittsburgh for shopping and fine dining and pro sports for the day. Dennison offers up the Trax Diner and the Train Museum. You can shop for groceries at Mako's in Uhrichsville, or Buehler's in New Philadelphia on your way home after a day of touring, however the nearest gas, pizza, beer and food convenience store year round is right next door at the Deersville General Store.
The Tappan Lake Park has a beach with a lifeguard and trails through the woods for hiking and it’s only a 5 minute drive from the house. You can launch your boat, kayaks and canoes there, or for free at the boat ramp on Tappan Lake along Hwy 250, or contact the Tappan Lake Marina and check on boat and kayak rentals. You can get fishing licenses and live bait next door at the Deersville General Store. There are also trails at Lake Clendenning, another MWCD park a few miles away. That Marina rents pontoon boats and kayaks. Both parks have websites with loads of information, too. And you can hike a portion of the Buckeye Trail that runs through Deersville- we are located in the Bowerston section. If it’s rainy, we have plenty of board games in the house to play and homemade ice cream is just a short walk next door. You can also contact the Harrison County Tourism Council for more activities and places to go and see.

Raised in Texas, but my ancestral roots are in the Appalachian hills of Ohio. I have always loved entertaining, designing interiors and staging events, so when my great grandparents home became mine again, it was a perfect opportunity to create a guesthouse with history and charm in the tiny village of Deersville. In my kitchen you'll always find the holy trinity of olive oil, onions and garlic, a simple bottle of wine, and lots of laughter! I loved my urban life in Austin where I practiced law, but I moved to the country and now live in my vacation rental when not rented out. I own a business and practice law in Ohio now, and find myself fortunate to have homes in the two friendliest places on earth. I collect useful vintage items for my homes, and especially love objects made of glass and metal. I want to create a combined experience of modern indulgence and historical relevance for my guests, allowing them to feel the history of my family in a peaceful and beautiful home that you won't want to leave
