Description from owner

When you visit Hocking Hills, unwind at our beautiful 16-person Chalet Lodge great for family and friend gatherings. Walk into this sprawling A frame lodge to a large, spacious main floor that comes with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and entertainment center. The lower level basement offers a great space for entertainment with the second entertainment center, game room with pool table and bar, and easy access to the hot tub and outdoor fire pit. The large, spacious yard and fenced in area are great for pets and families to spend time outdoors. Take advantage of the beautiful two-story wood burning fireplace during the warm months. The lodge comfortably accommodates 16 guests with its 5 luxurious bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms.

At the Chalet Lodge, wake up and spend time outdoors! Sip your morning coffee off one of the balconies that overlooks the forest and pond. Explore our 40+ acre property that sits adjacent to 1000+ acres of Wayne National Forest to find the hidden caves throughout property. Stroll down the hill to the private, stocked pond for catch and release fishing, canoeing, or to simply enjoy nature. Accidentally fall asleep in the hammock (in warm months). Relax and unwind in the hot tub. Enjoy your evening under the stars, making memories around a crackling fire while telling tails and roasting marshmallows. You will fall in love with the open starry night sky.

There is so much to experience & explore! The Chalet Lodge is a short 30-minute drive to the main Hocking Hills State Parks. Must see attractions include Old Man’s Cave, Ash Cave, Cedar Falls, Conkle’s Hollow, and Rock House. Lake Hope State Park, Zaleski State Forest, and Moonville Tunnel are a short 15-minute drive from the property, great for sightseeing or spending the day on the lake. Drive 5 miles into town to visit Nelsonville’s Historic Arts District, Stuart’s Opera House, Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, or Hocking College. We are a short 20-minute drive from Ohio University, great for parents and alumni visiting Athens. ATV enthusiasts, mountain bike enthusiasts, and hunters are all welcome!
