We visited while returning our daughter to Oberlin. We rented the Cedar house and suite at a reasonable price. We were greeted by friendly dogs and host, Deborah. We had a kitchen with fresh home-baked bread, quite a treat. We enjoyed the porch, walking on trails to the Vermillion river and through a wetland meadow. The mowed trail left plenty of tall grasses and wildflowers for birds and wildlife. We also enjoyed the artwork created by our hosts and appreciated the artistry in the woodwork of the homes that they built. This retreat is really a find!
