Nestled in the heart of Hocking Hills, Blackwood Haven is not just a cabin; it’s a luxurious escape into nature’s warm embrace. I recently had the pleasure of staying at this haven, and let me tell you, it’s a getaway that seamlessly blends modern comfort with the tranquility of the great outdoors.
The cabin was carefully crafted by the skilled hands and hearts of two accomplished general contractors from Columbus. Kevin Nordine, of Nordine and Associates, and Glen Williams, of Kiwi Home Renovations, have seamlessly blended their expertise in design and construction to create a haven that stands out among the trees.
This cabin, a testament to their skill and passion, reflects Kevin and Glen’s specialization in the design and construction of entire homes, as well as the remodeling of kitchens and bathrooms. It’s not just a cabin; it’s the result of their commitment to excellence in every detail.
Designed to capture the essence of modern Scandinavian style, Blackwood Haven is dedicated to minimalism, ensuring that the focus remains on the natural beauty that surrounds the cabin. The intention behind the design, to draw attention outward, is evident in every corner of the space.
Behind the scenes, Jenna Nordine, Kevin’s wife, played a pivotal role in the cabin’s design. Her influence and keen eye were present in every decision, contributing to the creation of an airy, inviting space that seamlessly blends with its natural surroundings.
Jenna’s touch is felt in the neutral and calming selections throughout the cabin, ensuring that each element enhances, rather than detracts from, the beauty of the nature that envelops Blackwood Haven.
If you’re love of nature extends to the type of car you own, you’ll be pleased to hear that there’s an EV charger for electric cars on the property. From the moment you arrive, you’re greeted by the beauty of 8 wooded acres, creating a serene backdrop for your stay. The cabin comfortably accommodates up to 9 guests and boasts a fully equipped kitchen that’s perfect for whipping up family meals.
As someone who values their morning cup of coffee, the kitchen quickly became my favorite spot, with all the amenities needed to start the day on a delicious note.
The cabin is an entertainer’s paradise, offering a range of activities to keep everyone engaged. From board games to a foosball table and ping pong, the basement is a haven for teens seeking their own space to hang out. And let’s not forget the hot tub – a perfect spot to relax after a day of exploring Hocking Hills.
One aspect that stood out to me is the thoughtful consideration for families with kids and pets. The downstairs closet is stocked with kids’ toys, including an adorable play kitchen set. For our furry friends, there’s a dog kennel available, and the provision of compostable yard bags make it easy to maintain a clean space for your pets.
The cabin’s modern aesthetic is a breath of fresh air. Inspired by Scandinavian design, the light wood and minimal appointments create an inviting and comfortable atmosphere. It’s a space where modern amenities seamlessly coexist with the the great outdoors.
The layout of the cabin is well-thought-out, offering the best views from the top floor. The two bedrooms on the main floor provide cozy sanctuaries, and the loft area is a fantastic retreat for teens seeking a bit of independence.
What impressed me most about Blackwood Haven is its proximity to nature. With hiking trails on the property, you don’t have to venture far to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Hocking Hills.
The limited but consistent cell service and satellite Wi-Fi ensure you can stay connected if needed, although the allure of the surroundings might encourage you to unplug and unwind.
Blackwood Haven is more than just a cabin; it’s a haven that invites you to slow down, connect with loved ones, and immerse yourself in the beauty of Hocking Hills. Whether you seek adventure or relaxation, this cabin offers the perfect blend of both, making it an ideal retreat for families, friends, and nature enthusiasts alike.
