If you love hidden gems, you definitely need to check out the Swing House!
On the outside, the house blends in with the other residences in the neighborhood.
On the inside, the house is anything but ordinary.
The Swing House is the passion project of artist Mark DeJong who took 3 years to reimagine and transform a freestanding 1880’s three-story building into a space that is whimsical and literal art.
I joined several writers from SATW for a special tour of the house located in the Camp Washington neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio.
During a visit, it’s important to take all of the details of the Swing House including the ceiling shaped like an hourglass and the ropes of the swing that stretch to the ceiling.
Mark shared more about his story and also demonstrated how he can get the swing going REALLY high!
A few of us almost lost our cameras while trying to get the shot.

I’ll warn you that the giant swing brings giant smiles and immediately makes you feel like a kid again.
Visit the Art Gallery in the Basement
The spiral staircase located behind the bed takes you down to the basement where you will find a bathroom and gallery space.
