Lance Rentals 

 Quality Country Rental Homes Athens, OH and Amesville, OH   


This is our  most sought out rental home, but it is not for the faint of heart!  A long, windy drive over the occasionally flooding creek along State Route 690 and uphill brings you through a covered dual garage to this Country Rental  A-frame Home in Athens.  Loads of glass and privacy in the woods above the world!  One bedroom and bath on the first floor along with washer/ dryer, large living room, and kitchen.  A second floor loft is accessible from the spiral staircase.  Owning a 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended.  Requires some effort from the tenant to maintain the cistern/ well water source.   No central air, but it does stay cool due to the wooded area.

You will love this secluded Country Rental Home in Athens!  No mowing really required!  You manage the flower beds.

Dutch Creek Country Rental Home

The Country Home sits closer to Route 550 instead of 690 on a private, wooded lot on Dutch Creek Road.  This home is one of our favorite because of its open floor plan between the living room, dining, and kitchen under the cathedral ceiling.  A wood stove keeps it toasty in the winter.

Large windows provide tons of sunlight and a wonderful view of the wildlife.  The first floor also offers a bedroom, full bath, and laundry.  The unique floor plan offers a loft style master with full bath upstairs.

Rent $950 includes minimum water, lawn care,.  No utilities included.  Two pet Friendly with deposit.  Room sizes:  Living 13' x 14', Open Dining Room/ Kitchen 11' x 30', 1st floor full bath 4' x 12', 1st floor bedroom 10' x 13', master bath 9' x 12', master bedroom 16' x 17'
