Description from owner

Our immaculate Bobcat Cabin is great for any family get-together while visiting Hocking Hills, Wayne National Forest, or Ohio University. The Bobcat Cabin offers a great space for entertaining family and friends for a weekend getaway. The beautiful, spacious, open-concept layout gives our guests the ability to enjoy quality time with their loved ones.

Guests will walk into the Bobcat Cabin to a beautifully remodeled space with knotty pined walls, hardwood flooring, hickory kitchen cabinets, and two comfortable living spaces. The entire cabin has been completely remodeled to make our guests feel like they are at a home away from home. Enter the Bobcat Cabin to a welcoming living space with a comfortable, large sectional that our guests can relax on after an adventurous day in the hills. The fully equipped kitchen and breakfast bar gives our guests the ability to cook delicious, home-made meals throughout their stay. Just located off the living room is a beautiful master suite with a luxurious master bath. The master bath has a large, romantic soaking tub great for couples. The second living room offers a great space to cozy up next to the electric fireplace with your loved ones while having a movie marathon. Use the back French door to walk onto the spacious deck. The deck spans the length of the cabin making it great for outdoor entertainment. Our guests can enjoy large family cookouts, relax in the hot tub and stargaze, or head towards the yard to the newly renovated outdoor firepit with wooden benches, Adirondack chairs, and a swing to share stories around the campfire. At the Bobcat Cabin, our guests have ample opportunity to explore, experience, and enjoy all of Southeast, OH.

Having two Ohio University alumni in the family, we had to name one of our first cabins the Bobcat Cabin. Bernie, one of the owners, graduated from the Ohio University Graduate Program in 1990. During his time at Ohio University, he met the love of his life, Jennifer, who grew up in the local area and attended Hocking College. One of their children, Sarah, followed Bernie's footsteps in attending Ohio University where she graduated from the program 30 years later, in 2020. Ohio University and Athens are near and dear to our hearts. We have spent years roaming around Ohio University, Athens, and Court Street. To represent our beloved Bobcats, we have displayed bobcat carvings throughout the cabin and decorated it with Ohio décor. We want every Ohio University family to attend an OU family weekend with us at our Bobcat Cabin. Once a Bobcat, always a Bobcat! OU oh yeah.

No need to bring a lot when you rent the Bobcat. The only thing missing was the butler in this fairy tale cabin. Everything was taken care of. It had a coffee maker, toaster, blender, pots and pans, real silver ware, and knifes fit for a king. The floor plan was open, and yet cozy. The decorator nailed it with the simplistic look, and spots of happiness everywhere you looked. The fireplace was magical, and the family of Red Cardinals greeted us on our first evening in the Jacuzzi. Terry and I didn't want to leave. You will not regret renting this cabin. The sites like old man cave was only a 20 minute drive. Be fore warned, this is not an easy climb and I'm of medium fitness level. However, the Jacuzzi will bring you back into balance with its amazing jets, and the warm cozy fireplace will lull you to sleep.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much! We would love to have you again!

“Wonderful Weekend Retreat”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2016

My three sisters and I spent a lovely weekend relaxing in the Bobcat Cabin located near Nelsonville, Ohio. This cabin is newly renovated, charmingly decorated and a pleasure all around. The kitchen is well appointed, the four bedrooms all have very comfortable queen beds. Wifi is available. It is near the small town of Nelsonville, close to Lake Hope and other places to explore in the Hocking Hills and Wayne State Forest. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
