Location

Ottawa, Ohio, United States

The Sugarcamp 7 Guesthouse is located on 20 acres, approximately four miles west of Glandorf, Ohio along the Blanchard River. The name “sugar camp,” is believed to be derived from the Native American practice of tapping indigenous maples for syrup, by regional tribes to include the Ottawa, Ojibwa and Potawatomi.
The number “7” represents the seven Kindle siblings (referred to as the 7 K’s) who were raised and lived on the property from 1958 through present-day.

HISTORY
Ottawa Native American Tribe – Rich evidence of early Native American life has been found on the SugarCamp property and surrounding farms to include numerous arrowheads, hunting artifacts and gravesites. The Ottawa tribe depended on fishing, hunting, gathering and some farming for its livelihood.

German Ancestry – Farmers from Glandorf, Germany immigrated to the Midwest region, and established farms and churches in the area in the 1830’s. Glandorf, Ohio was founded in 1834 and is considered a sister city to Glandorf, Germany with regular planned visits between the two Glandorf Communities.

Catholic Heritage – Many of the communities in Putnam County are steeped in Catholic Heritage as is evident by a number of beautiful Catholic Churches and Cemeteries. It is a worthwhile day-trip to view the churches in the area and consider the architecture of the buildings and commitment of the local parishioners.

The transition of the property from the Ottawa Indian Tribes to the Schroeder family isn’t completely known, but the heritage of both is still evident today. The matriarch of the 7 K’s, Eileen Schroeder Kindle, was raised about ¼ mile south of the Guesthouse on RD 14-1 on the homestead (still standing) of her parents Len and Teresa Schroeder. Len was raised approximately 1 mile east of the Guesthouse on RD I in a former Catholic Convent by his parents Nicholas and Mary (Kahle) Schroeder, (and later his stepmother Anna (Schierloh) Schroeder. The local neighborhood is home to the families of the original Schroeder settlers, and is often referred to as Schroederville.

TODAY’s ENVIRONMENT
The current family members seek to create a family and community resource that provides an opportunity to connect with the environment and heritage. Native vegetation and wildlife are given an opportunity to thrive on the 20 acres. A pair of nesting eagles is across the river from the main house and are regularly seen from the guesthouse.

Boating – Small rowboats, canoes and kayaks can be launched in and out of the property at the renters’ risk and responsibility.

Fishing – Catfish and carp are regular catches from the Blanchard. Fishing poles and bait can be provided upon request.

Hunting – NO guns or hunting are allowed on the property, as this is a small area and meant to provide a family atmosphere.

Campfires – Firewood is provided for modest-size campfires for roasting hot dogs, storytelling, smore's and enjoying the peaceful evenings.

Grilling – An outside gas grill is provided for those who like to BBQ.

Bicycling – Currently bicycles are not provided, but encouraged for a leisurely trip through the countryside, or a challenging long-distance ride on relatively flat roads.

WHAT TO BRING AND KNOW
Outside conditions – There may be bugs, poison ivy and mud! While the guesthouse is designed to provide relaxing and comfortable accommodations, the return to a more a natural state presents an environment that differs from a community park setting. Challenge yourself to pitch a tent or gaze at the stars to reconnect with nature.

Flooding – A large portion of the 20 acres is in a floodplain and can be expected to flood in both spring and fall seasons. However, the guesthouse and surrounding yard and fields are not impacted.

RULES and POLICIES
• No Pets are allowed on the property. At this time, we do not have a kennel available, so we request that pets be left at home.
