We are also near the Longaberger Basket Company, The Homestead Village and Longaberger's nationally known golf course. For those who love outdoor activities the Fraley House is located near an entrance of the Thomas J. Evans Bike Trail one of Ohio's many Rail Trails. It is a twenty plus mile hiking/biking trail going from Newark to Johnstown.One often sees a variety of wildlife along the trail.










    The Fraley House is a replica of an 1800's New England colonial home Part of its charm is stepping back in time and enjoying many of the antiques yet having the amenities of modern day living. Each guest room has a private bath. In the morning one can sit by the large brick fireplace in the kitchen or enjoy watching the sun rise while sitting on the porch with that first cup of coffee.

    A homemade hardy country breakfast is served in the dining room. For those who just want to relax the swimming pool and hot tub/spa provide an inviting atmosphere. Don't be surprised if in the late afternoon you see a family of deer grazing in the backyard.
