“Beautiful lodge, great location, nature at your doorstep!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We rented this home as we had two Irish dance competitions between Arkon and Cleveland. It is an ideal location, just off the beaten path from I80/I77, 20 minutes between each city.

The hardest part of the weekend was finding a grocery store and firewood! Thank goodness for GPS.

Kathy at Farnham Foundation was great. The place was clean, well kept. It is furnished with the basics, including all sheets and towels, so that was handy. We purchased a few things and left it for the next users of the property (clock radio and smores sticks). I think the comment that the supplies are sparse is somewhat accurate, but considering this facility was only operational for the last three years, it has come a long way. I am confident that next time we go, it will be better supplied, whether by future users or the Foundation as funding becomes available to do so.

The pictures do not do it justice. It is a large home, with four bedrooms and can sleep 7 without a concern, 10 if you have an extra air mattress or two. There is lots of room to put everyone. The property has lots of woods in the back that belong to the Foundation to wander around.
The highlight of the weekend though was all the animal sightings. We left peanuts outside and watched the blue jays, squirrels, raccoons and chipmunks eat from the pile in front of the bay window (next to the fireplace in the pics). A mallard came to visit while my family was fishing in the pond out front (the rods are on the porch to use for free). And today while packing we think we saw a woodchuck or a beaver run across the alleyway into the pond. A unique experience for us city folk.

Kathy, we will be back, hopefully before the end of summer with a crew to sit on the wharf watching the fish avoid the bait.

For those in Ontario, this place reminds me of Muskoka, in the bush, but with running water and all the amenities close by.

“Quiet and tranquill”

Very quiet and peaceful for being so close to Cleveland and Akron. Next to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Pet friendly a definite plus. Good shopping and restuarants nearby. Could be better stocked with kitchen essentials. Internet access would be a plus. Overall, a great place.
