About the property

Historic Rural Cabin Which Accommodates Up To 6 People

Enjoy a truly unique lodging experience in this relocated and resurrected c. 1820 log house and c. 1840 addition. Moved from Coshocton County, Ohio to our location in Tuscarawas County, the main structure recreates a pioneer atmosphere with authentic period furnishings and a romantic cooking fireplace. The adaptive reuse of the timber frame addition combines historic and contemporary aesthetics with modern conveniences.

Whatever your style or preference, we aim to make your stay at our cabin a truly unique and aesthetically pleasing experience.

Located within the heart of Amish country, just 9 miles from Sugarcreek, Ohio and 19 miles from Berlin, Ohio our 150-acre farm and cabin offers convenience to great area attractions, but most of all prized, private tranquility and seclusion. Come, get away to a different era or relax with modern amenities. Sit in the log house and feel what it may have been like to live on the Ohio frontier. Imagine the workings of an authentically reproduced stone cooking fireplace but use the well-equipped up-to-date kitchen. Experience sleeping on an authentic rope bed or spread out on a contemporary queen-sized mattress. We offer a great location to read, write, make art, hike, observe nature or just relax.

Whether you are looking for a getaway by yourself, as a couple or with your entire family, we can accommodate you. The air-conditioned log house provides sleeping arrangements for up to six people. The main room has a full-sized rope bed and the second floor bedroom contains a queen-sized bed. A fold down futon couch is located in the sleeping loft of the addition.

The timber frame addition has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with solid wood counter tops, sitting area with comfortable reading chairs, a satellite TV with VCR and a private bathroom with great corner shower. There is also a washer and dryer for your convenience.

About Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer

Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer have been married for 24 years and enjoy working and developing our family farm. Doug works as an artist and educator while Jennifer works as an academic advisor. Both enjoy raising their two sons and passing on the property's history to the next generation.

Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer chose Stone Creek

Our cabin is located on 150 acres of rolling farmland in the Stucky Valley, of Tuscarawas County, Ohio. Originally settled in the 1830's by the Moomaw family, the farm was purchased in 1903 by Doug's great-grandparents, German farmers, Jacob and Emma Hisrich. It has remained in our family for over 110 years.

The farm subsequently passed down to Doug's grandparents, Laura and Vernon Hisrich who lived, raised a family and farmed the property for many decades. After their deaths the main house, outbuildings and land remained underutilized for many years and fell into decline until we purchased them, along with Doug's parents, Ed and Pat (Hisrich) McGlumphy in 1997.

In addition to the built environment, the farm consists of approximately 60% tillable land and 40% woods. In an effort to preserve the property as farmland, a local farmer uses the fields to plant crops for his dairy farm. The remainder acts as a bird sanctuary, as well as habitat for local wildlife.

We enjoy our farm and its family history and invite you to come and enjoy its peacefulness and tranquility with us. It is a labor of love and continues to be an ever-evolving endeavor. There is always something new to look at with each subsequent visit as we always have a new project in the works.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin and rural setting offers a truly unique experience for couples, families or friends to get away and relax. We even have a baseball field, hiking trails and an art gallery right outside your front door. Come and enjoy!

Beautiful rustic cabin in picturesque setting

  • 5 of 5

This is the third or fourth (I’ve lost track) time my kids and I have stayed at this cabin, and there is a good reason why we keep coming back...we all love it here. A wonderful rustic escape from the stress of modern everyday life. Kids have to adjust to “unplug” but get over it relatively quickly here, and how could you not. Just too much to take in and appreciate. Doug and Jennifer are the perfect hosts, providing everything needed to welcome you and enjoy your stay, while still allowing your privacy.

My only complaint was that we didn’t get to spend enough time there...I wanted to walk the grounds more, but maybe on the next trip.

Thank you!

Jeff
