PLAN YOUR TRIP
Although most parents chose to drop their children off and return home for the week, summer camp presents the perfect time for parents to have that very important personal vacation time.
Ohio Dreams is situated near the beautiful Mohican Forest State Park and is just minutes from many great lodges, the picturesque Pleasant Hill Lake, bed and breakfasts, hotels and shopping.
If you are planning on staying in the area for the week while your child attends camp the following links will help guide you to a relaxing vacation.
We work very closely with the Mansfield Tourism board to make sure our parents are able to have an amazing vacation with the knowledge that their children are well taken care of and just down the road. We have outlined some key Lodging and Activitie choices below but ask that you click on the Mannsfield Tourism logo for additional information as there is just to much to feature here.
Preferred Hotel Information
The Quality Inn and Comfort Inn at Highway 71 and State Route 97 in Bellville are our preferred Hotels. These hotels are locally owned, operated and are very clean. All Ohio Dreams guests receive a 10% discount when booking at either of these hotels. These hotels are about 10 miles from Ohio Dreams.
Phone Reservations - You must ask for the Ohio Dreams Discount
Other Lodging Options
There are also many beautiful lodging choices in the area;
- Mohican Lodge Resort
- Angelwoods Hide-a-way
- Bluebird Cottage
- Bullfrog Mountain Cabins
- Luftberg Bed and Breakfast
We personally recommend any of the above choices as you can rent by the week and Jane over at Bluebird even offers an Ohio Dreams discount for the week.
Bluebird Cottage Bed & Breakfast differs from most other bed and breakfasts in what else it offers: the privacy and comfort of a separate residence. It is a free-standing cottage, with two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one with a double), fully-applianced kitchen, living room and screened in porch. The refrigerator is stocked with self-serve breakfast items. Visitors have access to a stocked pond and campfire area, as well as hiking areas.
Bluebird Cottage can be your little house for a few days. You can wear your pajamas to eat breakfast. You can walk into the cottage without going through someone else's living room, and you won't have to share a common area with guests outside your party. When you stay here, it is your space.
There is a big country kitchen for you to cook any food that you bring. Ingredients for a healthy breakfast will be stocked for you each day of your stay, and the coffee and tea are there waiting for you to start your day. In season, there will be produce from the garden and fruit from the orchard to add to your meals.
- Wi-Fi (somewhat limited)
- Satellite TV
- DVD player
- Fishing (licnese required. Bring your gear!)
- Extra tables
- Board games and books
- Wild raspberry picking (in season)
