Over four generations of my family have lived in this house beginning before 1900. You can rent the entire historic home (save for our private quarters) for a weekend or longer and enjoy the Ohio scenic byways and the Buckeye trail during the day, eat out in restaurants in nearby Dennison or New Philadelphia, visit Amish country or Tappan Lake Park, or create your own masterpiece in our fully furnished gourmet kitchen. This is a rare gem and perfect for family reunions, hunting groups, weddings, or for weekend getaway- just you and your special love. Hazel's House sleeps 8 in four bedrooms. Please note this is the "country," and this house is rustic and old. Although we do our best to create a relaxing and special environment for you, the swallows nest in the eaves and window ledges on the porch every summer and bugs can fly in. We don't use pesticides on our property, have an organic garden out back, and hope you like nature!
There is no prettier place in the world for us than Deersville. Hazel's House is located in the middle of this tiny village, home to 60+ souls. If you come in the summer or fall, you might catch a live production of the Deersville Community Theater. The Deersville General Store next door offers its famous homemade ice cream and has a well stocked beer cooler, milk, eggs, bread, etc., pizza and deli counter. Clendening Lake Park and Tappan Lake Park both offer boat ramps and fishing in the spring and summer. The Marinas offer boat rentals of all types. Harrison County is renowned for deer and turkey hunting. Holmes County, home to Amish wares and antiques, is less than an hour west. We love to head into Pittsburgh for shopping and fine dining and pro sports for the day. Dennison offers up the Trax Diner and the Train Museum. You can shop for groceries at Mako's in Uhrichsville, or Buehler's in New Philadelphia on your way home after a day of touring, however the nearest gas, pizza, beer and food convenience store year round is right next door at the Deersville General Store.
The Tappan Lake Park has a beach with a lifeguard and trails through the woods for hiking and it’s only a 5 minute drive from the house. You can launch your boat, kayaks and canoes there, or for free at the boat ramp on Tappan Lake along Hwy 250, or contact the Tappan Lake Marina and check on boat and kayak rentals. You can get fishing licenses and live bait next door at the Deersville General Store. There are also trails at Lake Clendenning, another MWCD park a few miles away. That Marina rents pontoon boats and kayaks. Both parks have websites with loads of information, too. And you can hike a portion of the Buckeye Trail that runs through Deersville- we are located in the Bowerston section. If it’s rainy, we have plenty of board games in the house to play and homemade ice cream is just a short walk next door. You can also contact the Harrison County Tourism Council for more activities and places to go and see.
