  • Introduction

    Sojourner's Lodge & Log Cabin Suites front of innLuxurious Lodge & Log Cabin Suites located on 20 acres in Ohio's Amish Country only 15 minutes from Berlin, OH! Surrounded by rolling farmland, beautiful forests, and overlooking our 3 acre lake. Gorgeous setting with a view of working Amish farms-the view is breathtaking from the decks & porches. Hiking trails through the woods plus a 60 foot wooden bridge!

    Besides these attractions, relax in front of a gas fireplace underneath gorgeous log trey ceilings. Sip hot tea or gourmet coffee from the decks or courtyards while enjoying a morning sunrise over the lake. Laugh with friends around the fire pit at night. Explore nature by hiking on our trails through the woods or bird watching by the lake.

    Sojourners Lodge is definitely a great place for bird watchers. From Canadian Geese, Mallard Ducks, Great Blue Herons, Green Herons, Red-Tailed Hawks, and Kingfishers to Bluebirds, Barn Swallows, and Woodpeckers, there is always something to watch for. Just as the changing seasons bring a different variety of wildlife, it also brings the beauties of nature, such as colorful fall foliage and sparkling ice on the pond. The sunrises over the pond are a favorite of ours, along with the full moon's reflection on the water.

    Located only 15 minutes from Berlin and Walnut Creek, 10 minutes from Mt. Hope & Kidron and 5 minutes from Winesburg, Wilmot, and Mt. Eaton. Come and enjoy all the seasons at Sojourners Lodge!
