Getaway Beaver Creek


S IT IS A MINI CABIN RESORT, AND IT’S NESTLED IN NEARBY OHIO. I HAD A CHANCE TO GET AWAY, AND I WAS AMAZED AT WHAT I FOUND. I EVEN GOT A CHANCE TO TRY MY FIRST S’MORE’S. WOW. YOU’VE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE? NO. I’VE BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK. TAKE A LOOK. SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED TO GOT AWAY. THIS DESTINATION ISN’T YOUR IT UP CALL VACATION. IT’S AN ESCAPE INTO NATURE, AND QUIET RELAXATION. JUST ABOUT AN HOUR AWAY FROM PITTSBURGH IN LISBON, OHIO, A MINI 17-CABIN HIDE AWAY CALLED GETAWAY OVERLOOKS THE BEAVER CREEK. GETAWAY IS JUST WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE. IT IS A GETAWAY FOR SOMEBODY WHO WANTS TO TAKE A BREAK FROM EVERY DAY, GET BACK TO NATURE. Reporter: MICHELLE CRUT SAID IT’S PRETTY SIMPLE HOW IT ALL WORKS. BOOK YOUR CABIN ONLINE. ON THE DAY OF YOUR ARRIVAL, YOU’RE SENT A TEXT AND YOUR LOCK CODE, AND YOU COME IN, AND YOU DON’T SEE STAFF UNLESS YOU NEED SOMETHING FROM THEM. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET OUTSIDE AND ENJOY THE TRAILS. THERE ARE NOT ANY WI-FIES. THERE’S NOT ANY TELEVISIONS. IT’S ABOUT RECONNECTING BACK TO NATURE. Reporter: AT FIRST, THE CABINS MAY APPEAR SMALL FROM THE OUTSIDE; BUT ONCE YOU GET INDOORS, THE SPACE JUST WORKS. THIS IS GREAT. YEAH. LOOK HOW MODERN EVERYTHING LOOKS. I KNOW YOU TOLD ME THE FIRST THING WE DO, WE HAVE TO PUT OUR CELL PHONES GOT TO DO IT. CELL PHONES GO IN THE BOX. THIS IS CALLED OUR CELL PHONE LOCK BOX. THE IDEA IS YOU WOULD COME HERE, AND YOU WOULD FEEL LIKE YOU DON’T HAVE TO CHECK YOUR NOTIFICATIONS. Reporter: THE CABIN IS AIR- CONDITIONED. THERE IS A WHOLE BATHROOM, AND THE VIEW YOU WAKE UP TO FROM EACH CABIN IS SPECTACULAR. EVERY CABIN COMES WITH A CLEAN BED OR A BUNK BED. SO WE CAN SLEEP TWO UP TO FOUR PEOPLE. YOU ALSO HAVE A KITCHEN HERE THAT HAS A MINI FRIDGE, A TWO-BURNER STOVE, AND THEN PROVISIONS FOR PURCHASE. LET’S SAY YOU FORGOT TO GO TO THE GROCERY STORE. YOU DON’T HAVE TO LEAVE. Reporter: IT’S SIMILAR TO A FULLY STOCKED MONEYNY BAR, EXCEPT NOTHING COSTS MORE THAN $10. GETAWAY REQUIRES MINIMAL PLANNING, WHICH IS WHAT THEY INTEND. IT’S SLIGHTLY TRADITIONAL CAMPING. IT GIVES YOU ALL THE BENEFITS WITHOUT THE STRESS OF HAVING TO PLAN FOR IT. Reporter: IF YOU FEEL LIKE EATING OUT ONE NIGHT, YOU CAN DO THAT RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR. EACH CABIN HAS ITS ON AREA FOR A CAMPFIRE. THEY’LL STOP BY THE OFFICE AND TELL US WHAT THEY MADE, AND A LOT OF GOOD RECIPES. Reporter: FOR A SMALL FEE, THEY HAVE LOTS AVAILABLE, OR YOU CAN BRING YOUR OWN. I WAS EXCITED ABOUT THE COMPLIMENTARY S’MORE’S KITS IN EACH CABIN. IT WAS MY FIRST TIME ROASTING S’MORE’S BY THE FIRE, AND, BOY, WERE THE S’MORE’S TASTY. THERE ARE THINGS TO EXMARRY OUTSIDE YOUR CABIN, TOO. THERE ARE DIFFERENT TRAILS. THERE ARE PLACES YOU CAN GO AND HIKE. WE SEE PEOPLE RIDING THEIR BIKES AND WALKING. YOU CAN EVEN BRING YOUR DOG. HE COZIES UP NEXT TO ME. MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE CAB BEN AREAS IS THE QUIET. YOU DON’T REALIZE UNTIL YOU’RE AWAY FROM THE NOISE EVER DAY HOW WONDERFUL THE QUIET IS. AH, THE QUIET. I LOVE THE BIG WINDOW NEXT TO THE BED, BECAUSE YOU WOULD FEEL LIKE YOU’RE OUTSIDE, YET YOU’RE NOT OUTSIDE, WHICH IS A LITTLE MORE COMFORTABLE FOR ME AND PEOPLE WHO DON’T NECESSARILY WANT TO SLEEP OUTSIDE. YEAH, IT IS. AND THE BOX TO LOCK YOUR CELL PHONE UP, THAT’S SUCH A GREAT IDEA. THAT WAS. THAT WAS REALLY HARD TO DO. I WAS ONLY THERE FOR A COUPLE HOURS. YOU DID IT WHILE YOU WERE THERE? I DID. I PUT MY PHONE IN THE LOCK BOX. IT’S GOOD FOR YOU, BECAUSE YOU DON’T REALIZE THE STRESS OF SOCIAL MEDIA, AND BEING ATTACHED TO YOUR WORK E-MAILS. SO IT WAS GREAT. JUST TO LET GO OF THAT. AND THE S’MORES, CLEARLY YOU ENJOYED THEM. THE S’MORES WERE FANTASTIC. VISIT PITTSBURGHTODAYLIVE.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION. WE HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU. HOW IS YOUR DIET GOING?
