One of the absolute best things about the Inn at Honey Run is the land on which our little slice of paradise rests. Not only is our own property full of gorgeous hiking trails, natural wildlife, birds of all colors, a herd of sheep, and exquisite spots for stargazing, we are also surrounded by a vibrant, thriving rural countryside that is home to some amazing people, animals, and plant life. We love Holmes County and the natural wonders of northeastern Ohio and we want you to explore all that it has to offer when you come for a visit.
There are a number of natural trails along the property that travel through the forest, along the hillside, and over the ridge. You’ll get the quiet peace of the woods as well as gorgeous views of the county for miles around. Natural streams make for tranquil meditation and reflection and the flowers are in bloom all over the hillside with over 1,200 species of natural plants and vegetation.
We have over 400 species of birds native to the area and we’re a registered Bluebird habitat, featuring 12 nests along the trails of the property with 5 of them currently active, as of this writing. Grab some binoculars and take in the exquisite beauty of our winged friends. Each species is unique and wonderful in its own way and somehow always reminds us of life’s beauty.
Not all the wonders of nature are on the ground. We get some wonderfully clear nights here in the summer and at the right spots you can see vast swaths of the Milky Way and count the summer time constellations. A good view of the stars does wonders for your sense of self and place in the cosmos.
A local favorite for folks who come to visit us here at Honey Run is our family of sheep who live in a large barn we built for them and graze on the hillside that overlooks the cabins. They’re frequently the stars of our social media accounts as people pose for selfies with our fuzzy friends.
There are a number of ways to get outside and appreciate the natural wonders around us and our goal is to make it as easy as possible. We’ve prepared a variety of exploration amenities to help enhance your experience on the property and get you out into nature.
Check them out when you book a room and we’ll see you on the trails!
