The Farm

The Farm has panoramic views of rolling hills, woods, streams, ponds, cattle and an abundance of wildlife. One might see deer, turkeys, foxes, coyotes, bald eagles, hawks and unusual water fowl in the spring. The heart of the farm is the Gothic farm house, a historic, solid brick and stone gem. The home was built in 1872 by the Smith family, lovingly restored over the past 10 years by the Wolf family and is still a work in progress. It features original Victorian moldings, high ceilings, reclaimed barn wood floors and front and back porches. Adorning the house and The Loft are colorful perennial gardens. The spring house (in the process of being restored) was the home’s original “summer kitchen” and features a historic root cellar, the refrigeration for the farm in the 1800’s.  There are two other hand- hewn, post and beam structures on the property other than The Loft. One is the original chicken house and the other is the large bank barn.

 

Just down the road from The Farm, is the Kokosing River, a state scenic river. Its clear waters are great for kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and swimming. The Kokosing Gap Bike Trail follows the river and is known for its picturesque rural views. The Farm sits between two historic churches and is only 3 miles from charming Gambier, Ohio and Kenyon College. It is about 5 miles from Mount Vernon, Ohio and Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Holmes County and the heart of Amish country is 45 minutes to the north and Columbus, Ohio is 45 minutes to the south.
