That White Pine-oneer Spirit….you got it?

Our White Pine Cabin seems to perplex many potential guests.  I guess I can understand the confusion, though. While most of the cabins in the Hocking Hills are log cabins in the woods, the White Pine is much closer to being a little wooden home on the prairie (much like the Pioneers once lived in). Our White Pine Cabin is a unique cabin in a unique setting. I’d like to take a minute to share why…

The White Pine sits at the crest of a hill over our farm pond. It is is lovely spot with lovely views, the sunset from the front porch is amazing! The breezes blow freely over the hill, without big trees to block it (or the view). Perfect for lovers of fresh country air and warm sunshine on their shoulders.

For most of us in the family, the White Pine is the favorite of our 2 cabins. For my, it is my favorite because it was the last big project my dad tackled before we lost him, so I see it as his last labor of love for the farm he adored. The inside is new, clean and neat (as is the Pleasant View Cottage), but it also has a warm, sweet spirit that seems to fill each and every corner.

Who best enjoys this special place? People who truly enjoy being together and want to be as close to one another as they can. People who come to the Hocking Hills to spend time with those who mean the most to them, and appreciate a clean, comfortable, warm and cozy spot to do so. People who travel with budget in mind, as the rate is less expensive than most of the hotel rooms in the area. There is also a full kitchen, so you can do all of your cooking in the cabin (saving even more money!).

We’ve also had more guests this summer stay in the White Pine with their children, bringing along an air mattress. Sometimes they need some extra bedding from us, sometimes not. Doesn’t matter, we are glad to accommodate!

A look at the White Pine’s booking calendar for this past summer shows there are plenty of like minded White Pine-oneers who appreciate our efforts and this special place. So, what about your and yours, do you have that White Pine-oneer spirit? If so, we’d love to have you!!
