Country Living: Ranches – Northwest Ohio Real Estate

country living - ranch

Aside from the colorful metropolitan areas of Ohio, the state also takes pride in its rich farmlands and vast country homes.

These properties are located in more isolated areas of the state and offer peace and quiet to those who want it.

Yet you’ll also find the acreage you need for country living near Toledo, Northwest Ohio’s biggest city.

Despite being the fourth most populous city in Ohio, Toledo has an abundance of lots and land for sale.

This makes the city ideal for someone looking for wide, open spaces but want to remain in the thick of the city action.


Living in Northwest Ohio also means being close to the border of Michigan. This fact effectively expands opportunities for employment, education, and entertainment among Buckeyes.

There are also many state parks and wildlife areas you can visit in the northwest region. For example, East Harbor State Park is a clean, peaceful place for campers. Other nature parks in the area include the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, and Maumee Bay State Park.

For those who enjoy shopping, the city of Maumee is home to shopping centers like The Shops at Fallen Timbers, Maume Sportsmall, and Maumee Antique Mall.

For a more cultural experience, you can visit Fallen Timbers Battlefield and the Wolcott House Museum Complex. You’ll find bars and clubs like The Sodbuster Bar, 21 West Lounge, and Dooley’s Irish Pub., in Sylvania.
