Three Shipping Containers in the Woods

This creative home, tucked away in the woods near Hocking Hills State Park, was brought to life by a young couple from Columbus–Emily and Seth. It had always been Seth’s dream to create a home from shipping containers, and he and Emily loved the Hocking Hills area for hiking, camping and exploring. So when they found a 18.5-acre plot of land that was perfect for the project, they started work.

Building the cabin, they say, took “seven months of blood, sweat, tears, early mornings, late nights, help from family and friends, and three shipping containers”. But we think it was well worth the effort.

Today, it’s a getaway in the woods that’s surprisingly spacious, sleeping up to eight guests, with two full bathrooms. The interiors are clean and carefully planned to offer maximum comfort.

But it’s the outside spaces we love – the first-floor wraparound deck that extends the living space outside, and the rooftop patio overlooking the ravine. It’s accessed from the upper level by a really unique rolling glass garage door or via the spiral staircase that connects the bottom and top decks. It’s the place to sunbathe, stargaze or sip a cocktail slowly as the sun goes down.

And of course, we have to mention the six-person hot tub, perched on a promontory at the edge of the deck — the perfect place to unwind after a day exploring the local trails.

This cabin rental in Ohio is a different take on cabin life that highlights both sustainability and the best of modern design. To read an interview with the owners, please visit our Journal here.

Description

This cabin rental in Ohio was built from three intermodal shipping containers, two making up the ground floor, and one placed at a right angle across their tops to create the upper floor. The interiors are fully finished, creating a very modern, polished space, with simple, clean lines. A wraparound deck extends the space outward, as do large, floor-to-ceiling windows that bring bright light (and great views) inside.

There are three bedrooms, each with a full bed, and two bathrooms with bathtubs, making this a great space for three couples sharing, or a large family.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Air conditioning, heating, fireplace, cable TV, washer/dryer, microwave, refrigerator, oven, stove, barbecue, lockbox, hairdryer, parking. An air mattress and high chair are available on request. An outdoor shower is available in Spring. The hosts are always available to help when needed.

AROUND

For lovers of the great outdoors, this destination in rural southeastern Ohio is practically perfect. Set in its own expansive grounds, the cabin is also located just 12 miles from Hocking Hills State Park, with its 25 miles of hiking trails, dramatic rock formations, waterfalls and recessed caves. It’s 8 miles from the Rock House loop trail, and 5 miles from Cantwell Cliffs, which is a little more off the beaten track but well worth the effort.

Other activities in the region include ziplining, canopy tours, caoneing, biking, fishing and horseback riding. And don’t miss local favorite eateries, Millstone BBQ and Pizza Crossing.

Also nearby is the recently-built John Glenn Astronomy Park, which was inspired by the vanishing night sky. Hocking Hills is one of the few areas left in Ohio where the night sky can be seen in a near pristine state, and this is a great place to take advantage of that.

LOCATION

Hocking Hills, near Rockbridge, Ohio, United States. Nearest airports: Rickenbacker International (40 miles), Port Columbus (46 miles).

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring to Fall, for best weather.
