House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Ohio River Guest house is the perfect place to relax, retreat and recharge. Enjoy watching the barges and steamboats on the river. The Guest House is a quiet and relaxing rural environment for the family or for the romantic couple. The house is only 5 years old and has all the amenities. Spend the day boating or fishing from the dock. Play a game of baseball or badminton in the lower field. Historic Marietta, Ohio is only 20 minutes away by car but have fun going by boat. Visit Blennerhatt Island or take in Fenton Glass factory. Drive 28 minutes in the other direction and visit Athens, Ohio; home to Ohio University. Whatever you decide to do for the day the evening will include a beautiful sky view, a roaring fire and a long soak in the hot tub.

About Linda Philips

We purchased the property as a young couple in order to continue our tradition of living near the water as we both did as children. This property was close enough to our home that it was great for weekends trips.

Linda Philips purchased this house in 1989

Why Linda Philips chose Reedsville

We spend the day on the water and finish with a great dinner, a hot tub and a movie.

What makes this house unique

We love to BBQ on the deck and then go for a long boat ride.

Perfect relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Ohio River House a few times with friends and look forward to our relaxing get away every year. The house is beautiful and quiet. Make sure you have everything you need as far as personal items, household items and food. The house is secluded but Ketchum’s General Store is not too far away, they have most everything and great pizza! We enjoy spending time sitting out on the deck, using the grill and relaxing in the hot tub. You have an incredible view of the river, the night sky and the barges that go by. For us, this is the perfect vacation spot and we look forward to going back next year.

Lovely getaway or get together home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed as a getaway for his 40th birthday. The house far exceeded our expectations. He loves fishing so we spent the weekend trekking down the hill to the river and dock,which were both beautiful. Quiet country road setting but not too far to little and bigger towns. We checked out some antigue stores,flea markets and cute restaurants near the WV border and went into WV for a movie. The deck was perfect for morning coffee or evening chilling.

GPS doesn't like this location so look for the address not what your phone/GPS says.

My husband spoke with the grounds keeper and he was very impressed with him and he gave tips on local places.

We only used the lower level but checked out the upstairs and were very impressed. Hoping to return some time with his best friend and his wife for a couples fishing/shopping weekend.

Great location, lovely house

  • 4 of 5

We came to help our daughter move (she attends Ohio University), and used this house as our "home base". We couldn't have asked for a better spot and the house was in great shape. The only suggestion I would make would be to upgrade the mattresses, as they are on their last legs. But other than that, which was minor, we love this house and would rent again.

The views of the river are wonderful in this southern Ohio getaway.

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at the river house in late May. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable for 5 adults. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the barge traffic and the osprey nest. There is not much to do in walking distance to the house but many activities within a 30 minute drive of the house. We especially enjoyed the relaxing in the hot tub after our daily adventures. I would recommend the river house if you’re looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting.

Plenty of room. Comfortably furnished. Great view!

  • 5 of 5

The house and rooms were larger than expected. Back yard was huge with access to a doc in an inlet of the Ohio River. Furniture was very comfortable. Usually the bed is the worst part of sleeping away from home. The beds here are awesome. You can sit in the hot tub on the deck and watch the barges go down the river. There were four of us but the house could hold a lot more. We had a lot of fun travelling about 20 min. to West Virginia grand mall, museums and other little shops. The only negative was the phone rang late at night the first night several times. I just unhooked the phone for the rest of our stay. I had good reception on my cell phone but my wife had trouble connecting with hers.

We had a great time and it was just the unwind we needed. If you're looking for a very comfortable place to stay with a beautiful view don't hesitate to book!
