Sweet Peace Forest is a secluded nature retreat located in Southeast Ohio. It is 30 minutes from Athens, and 20 minutes from Pomeroy (and Fur Peace Ranch). It exudes warmth and nature from the 30 acre forest where it sits, to the ponds, to the carefully crafted and recently remodeled home. No matter which way you look, there's something pleasing to the eye and soothing to the soul. Sweet Peace Forest is wide open with plenty of windows to capture nature from every angle.
“We were three old musician friends having a reunion to play and record music together here and it proved to be the perfect place. We intended to come to the cabin and stay there the whole time, and once we arrived it didn’t cross our minds to leave for 4 days. For that reason we weren’t interested in fancy restaurants or amusement parks being down the road. We wanted real seclusion. 40 acres of beautiful mature hardwood forest surround the place. There is so much to crow about with the place. It’s a beautiful cabin, very spacious and open. High vaulted ceiling, beautiful cherry floors. (This was great for our recording project, as the acoustics of the great room were fantastic.) The kitchen is gourmet by most people’s standards. Very nice cookware, deluxe gas stove, spacious fridge, coolest microwave I’ve ever seen, granite countertop, all the extras you will need to do real cooking, so bring it on foodies! Hot tub is super clean and stays hot with a very easy to open lid. Screen porch is great, though we were there before the bugs. Beds are super comfortable, very nice linens. Must be new expensive mattresses. Extremely white towels. Very snazzy bathroom, walk-in shower and whirlpool tub under the picture window. like out of a magazine. Nice woodstove, plenty of firewood. Weber grill and plenty of charcoal. There was a measure of adult beverages left behind for us so we followed suit and left a nice Cabernet. Fresh flowers, immaculately clean. I wouldn’t add a single thing. And a bargain price. We will be back.”
Nestled in Athens County OH, our charming cabin is a short drive from Hocking Hills State Park~9 mi from Ohio University & 3 mi from Lake Snowden (horse & hiking trails, boating, fishing & water park). Our location is in the center of Ohio's Windy 9 with the best motorcycle routes in the state. Rent a canoe or kayak from Raccoon Creek Livery- 3 mi from our cabin, or visit the surrounding state parks. This cabin is not in the woods and is on a state route road. However, we have 12 acres.
“One of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed! Mike and Missy put a lot of thought into building this home and it shows. They truly thought of everything. We could not think of one thing we would change about our stay. Also close to a lot of outdoor activities such as raccoon creek and lake Snowden. Was a much needed get away and they made it a perfect trip for us! Would definitely stay again in the future!!”
