Rental Policies

You must be at least 25 years old to rent our cabins. Anyone under 25 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We do not allow parents to rent cabins for their 17-24 year old children and their friends. If you would like to call me and pay a $1,000 refundable Security Deposit, then please feel free to do so. If more people are at the cabin than what was paid for you will be asked to leave immediately without refund. If the police need to be called out, you will be asked to leave without refund.


  • Less than 30 days is no refund.
  • There are no exceptions to this policy, not weather, not family emergencies.

There is a $100 charge plus damages for smoking in the buildings. They are made of logs and retain the odor of smoke.

We treat our cabins for pests but remember the cabins are in the woods and you may encounter insects. Fun Fact, we do not get cockroaches here in the country, but we do get wood roaches (they look the same), they do not carry disease and they do not infest cabins (they like the woods). You may come across one in the cabin. Also, we put out mice bait behind stoves and refrigerators but in the winter those guys get in through a 1/2″ opening at ALL cabins in Hocking Hills


  • The cutting down of trees is strictly prohibited and will result in a $100 fine, regardless of whether tree is dead or alive.
