Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a wife a mom and a grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren. I am also a professional photographer and adventurer which allows me to travel and explore.
How long have you owned Dreamscape Hideaway?
I have owned the cabin 3 1/2 yrs
The details seem to shine through every room of the cabin, what inspired you to make Dreamscape such a luxurious place to stay?
I've been lucky to travel extensively in the last decade and find myself intrigued and inspired with so many of the places I visit. I'm always asking myself, "How can I improve things? How can I make it better. Oftentimes something I see in some remote location gives me ideas on what I can do at Dreamscape Hideaway.
Hawaii seems to show its face around the cabin, can you tell us a little bit about that? Why Hawaii items in Ohio?
Well, my other job is chief photographer of Wizard Publications, the largest guidebook publisher in Hawaii. As a result, I alternate months in Hawaii and Ohio. So when I started Dreamscape Hideaway, I decided to bring some of the aloha spirit (not to mention fresh Kona coffee and chocolate macadamia nuts) to our cabin in the woods. In fact, the very name of the cabin comes from the titles of our Hawaiian coffee table books, "Hawaii Dreamscapes Revealed."
How many people does the cabin sleep? Do you allow children?
The cabin sleeps 6 adults. Although we love children the cabin is designed with adults in mind.
What are some of your favorite go-to spots in Hocking Hills?
My personal favorite would be hiking in the Hocking Hills. There are 6 major hiking areas, Old Mans Cave is my favorite. Also in the area is Horseback riding, canoeing/kayaking, rock climbing, ATV riding and ziplining.
Just Owning a rental place seems like a lot of hard work, but do you find it rewarding? If so, how?
It is a lot of hard work. More than I ever imagined. But, though it may sound like a cliche, when I read happy comments from happy customers, it really, really does make it all worth it.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us about the cabin? Any history or fond memories of your stays there?
Dreamscape Hideaway represents the culmination of all my dreams as a traveler. The smallest detail has become the biggest issue when I envision my ideal guest and the expectations that they bring when they check into the object of my passions.
We've had everything at the cabin from girls getaways, to honeymoons and reunions.
We also been astounded at the amount of wild life that show up at the cabin on a regular basis. You can sit right on the back porch and watch wild deer curiously watching us.
