PLAN YOUR TRIP
Although most parents choose 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 activity choices below but ask that you click on the Mansfield Tourism logo for additional information as there is just too 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 and 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 many of them by the week
Bluebird Cottage Bed & Breakfast differs from most other bed and breakfasts in what 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.
Bullfrog Mountain Cabins Modern & clean, our cabins (which are more like small homes) feature queen and full sized beds, kitchen facilities, private settings for each romantic, unique cabin. Outside hot tubs allow you to see stars at night. Your cabin is complete with a fire ring, charcoal grill, and picnic table. Get away and decompress from "life" for a few days and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature (no cable tv here). Cell phone service is sketchy in our neck of the woods.....truly, get away! Eye candy abounds!
