Clear Run Cottage

Clear Run Cottage is possibly the earliest example of Greek Revival architecture in Licking County. The cottage is located along side the historic Clear Run on over an acre of green grass and shade trees, and is within walking distance to downtown and Denison University. The guest cottage has recently undergone a complete and meticulous renovation. The warm interior colors are indicative of the Greek Revival period and the antique furnishings add to the warmth and relaxed character. Please make yourself at home and enjoy your stay in a piece of history.

The cottage has a gas log fireplace for chilly evenings and air conditioning for warm summer days. Sit back and relax on the brick patio or front porch and enjoy the deer, squirrels, woodpeckers and even an occasional hoot owl.


There are two bedrooms in the cottage. One bedroom is 16X18 with a low poster queen size bed, cherry nightstand, early painted wardrobe, cherry dresser, settee and ceiling fan. The second bedroom, 9X10, is furnished with an antique 3/4 Jenny Lynd bed, a three drawer chest and antique wall hooks for hanging clothes.

Living Room

The 15X16 living room is just the right amount of room to sit and read a book, watch a movie, television, or work on your laptop. The cherry blind door cupboard is stocked with books, games, DVDs and a flat screen television. The windows are shuttered to let in just the right amount of light. The gas log fire place lends a gentle ambiance to the living area, and the round walnut tilt top table is a delightful place to enjoy a snack or light meal.


The well lit kitchen area with ceiling fan is compact yet fully appointed. The kitchen features a refrigerator, stove, coffee maker, microwave, and toaster. The cupboards and drawers are stocked with dishes, flatware, pots and pans, and cooking utensils.


The beautifully tiled bathroom has a large walk in shower with rainfall shower head. The pedestal sink with antique mirror above is well lit for ease in personal care, and the shuttered window allows just the right amount of privacy and light. Toiletries are offered as a courtesy to our guests.
