Cabin in Blue Creek with kitchen and patio
Welcome to the Andrew Behm cabin,
Named for the original 1864 owner of our 40 acres. Visitors to the cabin will enjoy a peaceful rural experience while viewing the breathtaking views of the rolling foothills of Adams County. Named after the first family to settle the land in the 1800’s, Behm Mountain Cabin is a relaxing spot in the wilds of Adams County, Ohio. The cabin is reconstructed from the original stones and hand-hewn logs of several historical structures, originally built over 100 years ago. Relax in front of the wood burning fireplace and enjoy a peaceful night's rest on one of the three queen beds with pillow-top mattresses. Behm Cabin sleeps up to 6 people - great for a family retreat. The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen with unique concrete and antique counter spaces; if you choose to cook everything you need is available. There are two full bathrooms with tiled showers and provided linens. The master bath has an antique sink and rock counter. Behm is intentionally low-tech, however there is a T.V. on Dish Network and a DVD player provided. If you need phone service, please bring your cell phone.

The property includes 40 acres with abundant wildlife and growing network of walking trails. The area is a peaceful place to grill-out and sit at the picnic table under the timber framed gazebo. You can also relax by the fire pit and stargaze or let the kids catch fireflies. Complimentary firewood for fireplace and outdoor fire pit is provided.

There are several attractions all located 30 minutes or less from the cabin. The world famous Serpent Mound, the Wheat Ridge Amish Community and shops, the Edge of Appalachia and Arc of Appalachia nature preserve hiking trails, Chaparral Prairie and Davis Memorial hiking trails, Ohio Brush Creek which is great for canoeing, kayaking and fishing, Adams Lake State Park, Shawnee State Park, Mineral Springs Lake, and the Adams County Quilt Barn trail.

Andrew Behm Cabin is the place to get away from it all. Come and relax with us!

Exceeded my expectations.

A Peaceful Sanctuary
We have stayed at the Andrew Behm Cabin twice and have booked a third stay for next spring. The cabin is very private, has a wonderful porch for watching both sunrise and sunset, and a huge wood-burning fireplace. There's a first floor bedroom with a queen bed that is comfortable. We enjoy coming here to decompress and our stay never disappoints.

5/5 Excellent

Country Escape from the City
This was the third time my wife and I have stayed at the Andrew Behm cabin. The cabin is wonderfully rustic with all the modern amenities providing us with an escape from suburban and urban life without losing the comforts and conveniences we enjoy. The area is stunningly quiet, the cabin is nicely tucked away from main roads providing ample privacy and seclusion but not so far away that it's isolated from civilization. The cabin design and home furnishings provide a great, rustic country feel which is exactly what we were looking for. I recommend this cabin to anyone wanting an escape from busy life and a quiet, enjoyable country retreat.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful and perfect.
This cabin is beautiful and staying there was such an escape. We felt as though we were transported back in time. The craftsmanship and attention to detail was apparent throughout every inch of the cabin. We adventured out to serpent mound, hiking trails, and the local state park for swimming. The fire pit and outdoor eating area were great and we use them several nights. The stars at night were so bright and we enjoyed relaxing on the front porch with coffee. Our daughter loved looking for lizards and listening to the wildlife. The owners were extremely accommodating and if they will have us, we would love to come back.
