Lots of hiking near by. Not much in the town, some parts are a bit sketchy. The house was well maintained and Nathan was a great host.

Nathan was a great host and the house was great. The kitchen was especially well equipped for a 120+ year old house. We were there for four days to enjoy hiking in Hocking Hills State Park and other activities. We used bikes from the house to bike 37 miles round trip to Athens. When I asked about a bike lock for the bikes recently added to the house, Nathan brought one over. We spent several evenings out on the front porch enjoying the weather and saying hi to the neighbors. Nelsonville is a quiet little town and the house was within walking distance of several churches. We enjoyed First Presbyterian for Easter. We would stay here again if in the area.

Me and my three travel companions had a wonderful time staying at Nathan's beautiful home! Nathan was a gracious host and made it so easy to coordinate arrival and departure details. His house was cozy, beautiful and clean with a fully stocked kitchen that was a joy to cook in. Very convenient for nearby hiking (we went to Old Man's Cave and Lower Falls) and exploring the historic Nelsonville Public Square.

Nathan was amazing! I have stayed at countless airbnbs and he was by far the best host i've ever met. The house was full of amenities and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Additionally, the area was awesome.

The house has spacious rooms, was very comfortable and we loved the decor and artwork. Nathan was easy to communicate with, very accomodating and prompt when I had questions. The kitchen was well stocked and everything in it was at our disposal! There were roses, candies and water bottles for us to enjoy. The neighborhood was quiet during the day and at night. We took a walk and enjoyed the dogwoods in bloom and cool Victorian homes in the area. There is a cute town square just down the street where we had brunch at the Rhapsody restaurant and it was quite nice. It was an easy drive to both OU and Logan from the house.
