My folks stayed at the Stoney Creek cabin and the place was wonderful! The cottage is beautiful and very affordable. I recommend this over a hotel any day.

This is a beautiful place to take a drive or a hike. South central Ohio is rich with history, from early native American history to events important to Ohio as a state. This natural area has attractive roadways, and bountiful wildlife, to the observant traveler!
