In honor of the big American quilt trail, (see quilt photo above), the owners of this vacation hot spot joined in the quilting tradition in a unique way. Says co-owner Susan Ruehl of her husband’s new rock wall, “Doug built a massive rock wall (photo above), of limestone quarried from our residence, to encompass the quilt square that is hung from a cedar log.  We commissioned Randi Gish Smith to design and paint the square for us.  We selected the pineapple quilt block because the pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies.  We had a dedication on October 25, 2012.”

While hiking the fields and woods of The Rock, or the Whipple State Nature Preserve trail across the road, you will have the opportunity to observe and photograph an abundance of nature.

The Ohio River and nearby Brush Creek will afford you the opportunity to do some fishing or leisurely boating. Deer bow-hunting packages, on private property, are also available at The Rock.

Hunting is much-enjoyed, fun adventure offered here for those who love to hunt. Read the link to their website here for further details when hunting season calls to those who wish to hunt for whitetail deer:
