Nestled peacefully into the stunning landscape of Ohio’s Amish Country is the Dwell Box Treehouse Village. When my husband and I were researching a unique place to stay in Ohio, we found these neat, modern accommodations on Airbnb. There are so many trendy AirBnbs now and we were super excited to get away for a night and try one out. We ended up staying at “The Shack” in Dundee, Ohio. It was the perfect size for the two of us to stay comfortably and it was very cozy! A peaceful retreat to Dwell Box Treehouse Village in Ohio was just what we needed.
One thing that I love about living in Ohio is being close to Lake Erie. I definitely took living in such proximity to one of the beautiful Great Lakes for granted growing up. Now that I am an adult, I think it would be really difficult for me to live anywhere that isn’t close to the beach – whether that be a lake or ocean. It is a part of me now and I just cannot stay away!
This year has been a crazy one to be sure. As a travel blogger who can’t really travel right now, it has been difficult to know what to share with you all. Luckily, I have found a lot of inspiration right in my own backyard. I have always loved living in Ohio, but now I am even more thankful to call this beautiful state my home. Ohio. Find It Here. has curated 10 lovely road trips for all types of interests and I am partnering with them again on another post to share some hometown travel inspiration with you today! In honor of Women’s Equality Day, I decided to stop and explore the International Women’s Air and Space Museum in Cleveland which happens to be one of the stops on the Women in History Road Trip.
I recently arrived home from a romantic staycation at Gervasi Vineyard in North Canton, Ohio. It was the perfect, scenic destination for a getaway that was both close to home and also made us feel like we were on vacation. It was very important for me to find accommodations that would be taking state mandates and guidelines very seriously. We also wanted to stay somewhere with outdoor spaces to explore and Gervasi was a perfect choice!
Getaway has cozy tiny house-like cabins nestled away into nature just a short drive outside of 12 major cities (and counting!). Since we are Cleveland natives, we visited Getaway Beaver Creek outpost, which is conveniently located between Cleveland and Pittsburgh. The Getaway motto is, “Disconnect to reconnect…Unplug from work, wifi, and routines”. They purposely don’t have wifi and it’s very refreshing to unplug. There are even cell phone lock boxes if you are brave enough to use them!
I have been begging my husband for years to take me on a staycation in Cleveland. I thought it would be a great opportunity to get away from the distractions of normal life and I wanted the opportunity to plan designated time to talk. Discussions would be centered around the previous year, as well as goals for the new year, planning out our budget for the year, and where we wanted to travel.
