This lovely and spacious waterfront home is the perfect getaway for families and friends. You'll have the whole house to yourself, and it comes attached to a private 23-acre forest full of wildlife and waterfalls. The woods are perfect for hiking, birding, and hunting (short-term hunting leases are available). The ranch-style cottage has plenty of amenities, a wraparound deck, and a beautiful view of the Ohio River. It's just a short drive to Augusta, Kentucky, and an hour from Cincinnati.

The space
The space has one bathroom, a full kitchen with dishwasher, a washer/dryer, two bedrooms (plus a sleeper sofa in the living room), high-speed wireless internet, A/C and heating unit, and a wraparound porch overlooking the river. There are plenty of books, board games, and two televisions streaming Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and HBO to keep you entertained when you're not exploring the forest or watching boats on the water. 

For hunters, this is a prime location. The woods are full of deer and turkeys, and short-term hunting leases are available for those wishing to purchase them. There's a master bedroom, a second bedroom with two twins, a sleeper couch in the living room, and a cot that can sleep a sixth person.

Where you’ll be

Ripley, Ohio, United States

Ripley is a small Ohio river town in Brown County known for its beautiful sunsets.

There's a charming downtown area with a floating restaurant (Ripley Boat Club), cozy diner (Twin Diner), great family restaurant (Coheart's), pizza joint (Giovani's), and more. There are also several fun bars for those who partake (Snapper's, Brookie's, Sunset Bar). Ripley also has some great antique shops, such as the Old Piano Factory, and a flea market on weekends.

Historically, Ripley is notable as an early stop on the Underground Railroad. You can still visit the Rankin House, a national historic landmark where Presbyterian Minister, John Rankin, helped slaves escape to freedom. The home actually inspired the classic novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe.

The area also has lots of great boating and fishing areas.
