Log Cabin in the Woods - Danville Ohio

by Sam Miller

Nestled back off the road with 3 acres of land in a very private and secluded setting you will find a charming log home with a gorgeous country style covered porch.  This property is really ideal for a weekend getaway or hunter's retreat because of the location, floor plan and bedroom configuration.  The living space is roomy and features a nice open great room which combines a large living room with a wood burning stove, dining area, and an appliance and oak cabinetry filled kitchen.  The cabin has approximately 1,100 square feet of living space but you will likely spend as much time outdoors and relaxing on the covered front porch enjoying the absolutely beautiful setting with wonderful country views.
