Circa 1823. Spanning six gorgeous rural acres, the grounds evoke an arboretum ambiance with theme gardens, benches, fountains, life-size statues, a pond, bridge and covered dock. The Federal style architecture with Greek Revival elements was built in 1823 for the Ohio state representative, James McFarland. Let creativity flow in the fully supplied art loft. Avid readers will enjoy the bookbarn. Guest suites and common rooms reflect a variety of decor that include Victorian, British Colonial, Early American, rustic and modern.
