Raccoon Falls

Welcome to Raccoon Falls Cottage. Located in beautiful rural Gallia County Ohio, we are situated on a wooded hillside overlooking the falls. The guest cottage is a cozy three bedroom house with livingroom, den, bathroom, kitchen, dining room, herb garden patio with gas grill, and a large porch which faces the falls. Located just 2 hours southeast of Columbus, we are 10 minutes from the charming Ohio River town of Gallipolis and 15 minutes from Bob Evans Farms, site of the annual Bob Evans Farm Festival.
If you want to relax and enjoy the country, this is the place to be!

About Us

About Us

We rent to only one family, couple or group at a time. Children are always welcome. The cottage has three bedrooms, two with full-size beds and one with two single beds. The atmosphere is laid back, comfortable and a little funky.
Hike through our peaceful fifteen-acre woods criss-crossed by numerous hiking trails. Raccoon Cottage is "self-catering", and contains most kitchen tools you will need to prepare and cook your own food. Your hosts are Reid and Liz Brubaker. We live in a log cabin next door to the cottage, and we'll do our best to make your stay enjoyable.
Raccoon Falls is the perfect get-away spot. A wonderful place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Ideal for the artist, cyclist, writer, reader or nature lover--you can hike in the woods, fish in the creek, watch the birds and deer or simply kick back, mellow out and groove to the sound of the falling water.

Will my cell phone work at the cottage?
Sorry, but it's unlikely that your cell phone will work here; mine sure doesn't. The good news is there's a phone in the cottage that can be used for local as well as long distance calls within the U.S. at no extra charge!! If you prefer to be incommunicado all phones can be unplugged.
What time do we need to check in? or out?
As long no one has the cottage booked immediately before or after your stay, we are very flexible and have no firm check-in or check-out time. However, we do ask that you let us know when you plan to arrive and depart--it just makes life easier.
Do you require minimum stay?
Yes, we do require a two night minimum stay.
Do you prepare breakfast?
We no longer serve breakfast. The cottage is now "self-catering", meaning you can prepare your own meals at your leisure. The kitchen contains most of the tools one would need to prepare meals; if you need something else, and we have it, you are welcome to borrow. Just let us know.
My kids/husband/wife/mother...are addicted to shopping malls/nintendo/playstation/high-def/computers/cell phones... how will we/they survive?!?!
No need to worry, you'll find lots to do here. We have books to read, board games to play, a campfire to sit around, trails to hike, deer and birds to watch, water for swimming and fishing and a water falls to gaze upon-all are proven to increase endorphins and make you mellow and happy.
