10 unique places to rent in Ohio

1. The Swing House: Camp Washington neighborhood of Cincinnati.

This house (which also features a small art gallery in the basement) was the dream project of Cincinnati-based artist Mark de Jong, who had envisioned featuring a gigantic, 30-foot swing in the middle of the Italianate-style house for years. 

The listing begins at $211 a night and can sleep two guests.

2. Cincinnati Brewery & Urban Farm, Goat View 1 and 2: Mount Healthy.

The title says it all: this working brewery and urban farm offers two rentable spaces with views of the surrounding land, including a “goat view room.” The rentable spaces are connected to Fibonacci Brewing Company, and there’s also a taproom accessible from the first floor.

Both listings begin at $99 a night and can both sleep two guests in one bedroom.

3. Tinyhut: Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage, East Price Hill neighborhood of Cincinnati.

If you’re looking for something small and, well, rustic, look no further. This tiny home is located on private residential urban farmland in Price Hill and is completely constructed from reused materials. For that extra rugged feel, the kitchen and bathroom are detached and are in the main property building. 

The listing begins at $42 a night and sleeps two adults in one bedroom. 

The Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage is found on Enright Avenue and consists of a group that comes together often and lives under the same principles of simplicity and sustainability.

4. Magical Barn, Bock’s Jukejoint: Amherst. 

This converted barn in Amherst, Ohio (just west of Cleveland) features everything you need for a good time, including a saloon bar, a stage, a clawfoot tub and a loft door that opens to a view of the surrounding orchards. There’s no air conditioning, but there is an outdoor tub and shower if that’s the kind of compromise you’re willing to make.
