St. John’s Hermitage is nestled in the rolling hills and ravines of McDermott, Ohio about 10 miles from Shawnee Hills State Park. Wildlife is abundant. It is approximately two hours drive from Columbus and approximately 30 minutes south of Chillicothe and 20 minutes north of Portsmouth, Ohio.
Over 54 undeveloped acres surround the property with the possibility of acquiring that land. Internet and phone service is excellent on the property. The Hermitage is close enough to Portsmouth for guests to drive in for fraternal activities such as going to a restaurant or movie theater. Six Catholic parishes are within a 15-mile radius of the Hermitage.
