This rustic off-grid cabin, perched on a verdant bluff, is surrounded by magical woodlands in Athens, Ohio, near the Wayne National Forest. A quarter-mile walk through the forest will lead guests to the cabin, where they’ll experience a true outdoor getaway with the comfort of a bed to come home to after exploring the area. The cabin rental accommodates two glampers on the comfy double bed, while a small child can be accommodated on the sofa. Linens are kindly provided.

In the kitchenette, guests will find a propane two-burner, a fridge, and cooking utensils to prepare meals, which can be shared in the living area. There is a toilet and sink available inside, and an outdoor solar shower for a unique experience,

Spending time on the deck, which overlooks the natural beauty Ohio has to offer, is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. There are plenty of winding trails throughout the surrounding 20 acres of woodland for guests to enjoy hiking.

This off-the-grid cabin rental sprawled on 20 acres of private land offers linen and towels for a comfortable stay.
