Reserved the Hidden Lake Lodge for our work retreat and could not have been more pleased. Large enough to handle our group of 15 without feeling cramped and on top of each other. Kitchen had everything we needed. Outdoor space was perfect and had plenty of seating for everyone not often the case in other larger cabins. We felt secluded but were close enough to town for groceries and Old Man's cave was just down the road. We definitely hope to return,

Our family certainly enjoyed staying at Black Bear Hideaway. We had plenty of room and the setting is beautiful. It was very convenient to the park. We actually had tornado warnings the last day of our stay and it was nice to have the basement bedrooms to retreat to while we waited. The cabin was well built to withstand the winds. We are from Xenia, Ohio, so we are very conscious of these things. One thing we could not find was a wine opener, but we improvised! We loved our stay!

We loved the Black Bear Hideaway. Everyone could spread out and the grounds were perfect for 4 kids ages 7-11. We want to come back again when it's warmer, but finding a free weekend for this brood can be challenging. Thanks for providing a great family retreat right in the heart of Hocking Hills, one of our favorite places.

The Black Bear Hideaway was perfect for 14 people. We had plenty of space and the cabin was beautiful. We are looking forward to another getaway.

The Hidden Lake Lodge was amazing! We had 11 people in our Biker group and everyone felt at home. Nathan worked hard packing down the stone driveway for our motorcycles. We do not recommend 2 wheel motorcycles on this driveway, but we would stay here again with other transportation! This place is Beautiful, peaceful, and a perfect retreat for anyone. We did take advantage of the hot tub after a long day of riding. Nathan and Jobie are the perfect hosts and would do anything to make your stay memorable so you want to come back.

We stayed the Hidden Lake Lodge for my husband's SURPRISE 30th birthday party. It was absolutely perfect and that was in large part due to the lodge and everything it offers. The lodge is huge and no one ever felt cramped. I cannot say enough about the wrap around deck. It was raining and we were still outside enjoying with NO ISSUE at all. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed. The fire pit area was amazing. Nearly everyone in the group commented on how wonderful the lodge was and we can't wait to book it again for another weekend next summer.

A group of friends from high school have stayed at Hidden Valley Lodge for the past 3 years. We reserve for the next year shortly after we leave because the place is so perfect for us. We typically range between 10-15 adults. The lodge and the furnishings are attractive and functional. There is a huge expanse of covered deck/porch with plenty of comfortable seating, in a private and secluded setting. We really enjoy the very long dining table inside, where we can all sit at one time for meals or games. Most places don’t have that option. The photos accurately reflect what you will find.

We have been coming to Hocking Hills for about 20 years and have stayed in many different cabins/lodges, and honestly, this was the best accommodations we have had to date! It was not just the property and amenities that we enjoyed, it was by far the best customer service we have yet to have encountered. From all my various questions being answered prior to our stay to the phone call asking if we wanted more wood, you guys are top notch!

Keep up the good work, we will definitely be back soon!

My husband and I and our eleven school-age children thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful, well maintained property! Hidden Lake Lodge was the perfect family-friendly escape...filled with games, cards, puzzles, pool table and hot tub. We can't wait to book again in the summer months to enjoy all the outdoor amenities as well. Thank you for your attention to detail!

We had a ladies weekend and we were all impressed by the gorgeous cabin we stayed in, which was black bear hideaway. Definitely will stay again in the future. The owners were very accomodating. Very quiet and serene. We all wanted to own this lodge! :)

We were absolutely impressed with this cabin the moment we arrived! It was so beautiful everyone was very excited about staying here, way beyond our expectations. Very clean and well stocked , plenty of beds for all of us. The kids loved the bunk beds in the basement and all the beds were very comfortable. We are definitely planning another trip there next year!

A beautiful cabin for a family vacation. Secluded, clean, with a well stocked kitchen. The wrap around porch was awesome. Nice fire pit with plenty of wood. Huge tables inside and out on deck We had one of our best family vacations at this cabin. Easy check in and check out. Would love to come back in future.

Kristin Puzon

The cabin was lovely! Easy check-in/check-out. Clean and updated. It was so nice not to have to run out for firewood. Kitchen was easy to use with provided dishes and cooking utensils. It's located on a cul-de-sac which gives this setting a quieter, calmer feel. Located close to many of our favorite hiking places. We will be back!

Linda Barger

Absolutely loved the house! Plenty of room for all of us and loved that we could all share meals around the same table both inside and out for 12 of us. Owners were very responsive to questions I had prior to our stay. Definitely a place we would stay again when we come back to the area.

Thanks again!! Next time will have to stay with my girlfriends!!

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

Our family of 17 had a wonderful time at Hidden Lake Lodge this past weekend. Plenty of space for everyone and well-equipped in all areas. It was great being able to eat at the same table with such a large group. Beautiful home, awesome wrap-around deck. Ideal location--private but not too far from attractions, restaurants, shopping, etc.

A group of 11 ladies loved this cabin! From winding back off the main road to all the cozy touches! It was perfect and had plenty of space. Clean! Loved the kitchen and the wrap around porch so all of us could hang out together! Maybe we can make this a yearly tradition now!

My family and I have stayed in Hocking Hills several times and we all agree this is the nicest cabin for what we paid, by far! Clean, secluded, and spacious...we would all recommend this place!

Great cabin during our recent stay. Everything you need and more. Very clean and cozy.

We have been coming to Hocking Hills for many years and the Hidden Lake Lodge is the best. There is a lot of privacy and space. The lake is awesome and I caught nice bass, crappie and bluegill each day. We didn't want to leave on the last day because we had such a great time. I could skip hiking the local parks and get enough hiking on the Hidden Lake Lodge property. I highly recommend this place for your next get away.

This cabin was perfect for our 2 family getaway. Lots of space for everyone even our dogs! We would all recommend this cabin. One of our favorite things was sitting around the fire listening to the owls. We still can't believe how active they were. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Our family of 11 stayed at the Black Bear Hideaway cabin and it was my favorite so far! We take HH trips at least twice a year. I highly recommend this one. We will definitely be staying there again.

We celebrated my 60th Birthday at the cabin with family. The cabin was lovely!! We went hiking on Sunday and enjoyed the hot tub afterwards.

The cabin is very well equipped. The only thing we needed to bring was food. We all agreed that this was our favorite cabin. We have been coming to Hocking Hills many years.

A fantastic cabin with plenty of room, close to everything yet completely secluded. Our family loved it!!! Would highly recommend.

Awesome cabin! Very clean, nice amenities, great kitchen with all you need to cook. Ample bedding and games in the cabin. We had an awesome stay and would book with Hocking Lodging again!!

The space was very accommodating and comfortable (our party had three families with six kids total, along with two sets of grandparents), and the location was very convenient to some of the more popular hocking hills destinations (within miles to Old Man's Cave, Ash Cave, and Cedar Falls). We could visit and hike all three locations, as well as Rockhouse and Conkles Hollow, over the weekend.

A winding road leads you to this beautiful cabin in Hocking Hills; this home provides you with a warm, cozy, relaxing stay. Morning coffee on the wrap-around porch, watching the sun peak through the clouds and trees. From family trips, girls weekends, to a quick visit- you will find yourself ready to stay longer or returning again and again. Love it here!

I can't begin to tell you the peace and tranquility of this magnificent lodge amongst the trees has done for me, I was able to enjoy the beauty and serenity of this location. I have been here several times with friends and we all return to our lives with a sense of a refreshed spirit. I highly recommend taking in the many places to hike and enjoy the hidden lake. Every season has its own beauty and enjoyment.

Mark & Lindsey Allen

By far, the most amazing destination for a relaxing, wonderful, and perfect family getaway. Our entire family, all 19 of us (11 grandsons, 8 adults), spent a long weekend in this luxury cabin. Our family has also traveled to Disney World together, but THIS is the vacation we talk about the most. The lodging is pure perfection. Spotless, modern amenities, peaceful surroundings, crazy comfortable beds, and our favorite...A TABLE LARGE ENOUGH TO FIT OUR ENTIRE FAMILY SO WE COULD ALL EAT TOGETHER!!!!

Our time here was intentional, relaxing, and better than we could have imagined. We continue to try to match our schedules to all go back to this very lodge in Hocking Hills because there is nowhere else we want to all go again together.

Angie Dearth

This is was my first time staying at this property. I have stayed at several HH locations in the past and this one by far was the nicest that I have ever been to. It was large enough for everyone to be together, but also large enough to get away if needed for some quiet time. Wifi, cable, pool table, hot tub, fire pit, wrap around deck and a table to seat 18 people! I will be back in October. I can't wait!!

Sharon Garcia

I just spent a long weekend at this lodge with a large group of friends and it was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! The lodge accommodated all of us comfortably. The large table allowed us to all dine together and the open floor plan provided enough space for all of us to be together to play games and watch movies. The sleeping accommodations were very cozy. The wrap around porch has a lot of chairs and tables that invites one to enjoy some peaceful time in nature. The lodge was warm, cozy and clean! It exceeded my expectation! This was my first time at this lodge...and I already booked another stay for later this year!

I've stayed in many cabins in the Hocking Hills region, and this one takes the cake! (I've now stayed here 3 times!) It is truly beautiful, inside and out. The giant wrap around deck is incredible - perfect for large groups, yoga practice, or mimosas - whatever is more your style! The giant dining room table is great for playing games and eating dinner with ALL the people you can pack into this cabin. The beds are exceptionally comfortable - quality mattresses & very nice sheets. Even the bunk beds have great mattresses (a rarity.) It is spotlessly clean, charmingly decorated, and has every amenity you could wish for. (Hot tub, wifi, large TVs, great cable package, well stocked kitchen, whole house water filter so you can drink delicious water from the tap, close to the caves, the list goes on...) I can't wait to return to this cabin in October! Truly, I've stayed in many rentals - in the Ohio hills, at the beach, etc - and this cabin exceeds all others in cleanliness & finishes. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

We have stayed twice at HLL. One time for girls weekend - what a blast! The 2nd time with our family and 3 other families. Accommodations are perfect for a large group and enough seating for everyone to have dinner together. Great property with on site hikes, fishing and lake things in the summer. Close by to Old Man's Cave and other fun Hocking Hills adventures.

Our family enjoyed our stay at HHL this past weekend. It was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. We especially loved the wrap around deck. The view from the back was beautiful & relaxing. We appreciated the large tables in the kitchen and on the deck which could accommodate our group of 10 plus more. The beds were very comfortable also.

We had a wonderful family vacation at Hidden Lake Lodge. The house is beautiful and clean with an open floor plan and several areas for large groups to gather. Our family enjoyed meals together at the large table, playing "Corn Hole" and "Kan Jam" in the spacious backyard and hiking on the property and nearby. Special memories of August 2016!

Hidden Lake Lodge is a gem in Hocking Hills! Enjoyed a weekend with 4 families and 16 guests (7 adults & 9 kids) with plenty of room to move around. The lodge is high-class and spoiling. It has EVERYTHING that you could need already there. The setting is very PRIVATE & BEAUTIFUL! There is great proximity to all of the hiking trails in the area and we barely touched all of what Hocking Hills has to offer. Definitely recommend Happy Trails Horseback Riding (10 minutes from the lodge). The guides were very knowledgeable & horses very responsive to some of our young riders. We will be booking another stay at Hidden Lake Lodge in 2016!! Much appreciation to the owners for building such a gorgeous retreat & for sharing it with all of us!

I was in search of a location and facility in which to have a comfortable, enjoyable four-day family gathering for two grandparents, six parents and nine grandchildren. The beautiful, well-equipped Hidden Lake Lodge and the natural wonders of Hocking Hills Park were a perfect fit.

All ages had a great time and experienced a memorable family get-together!

A group of 1988 gals from High School decided to get together for a weekend of catching up with each other. We chose this cabin and it was the perfect place. It was very clean, the views were beautiful, and the owners were very easy to work with. The cabin had everything we could have wanted. Very large, but very cozy. My favorite memory was getting massages on the deck in the warm sunshine and sitting around the fireplace reminiscing about "the good ol' days" I highly recommend this cabin!

What a gorgeous and HUGE cabin/chalet/lodge. We loved it so much for a writing retreat. The owners have put so much love and attention into this place that you feel at home. Everything you need is there and you can be sure to feel pampered and refreshed. The place is gorgeous and the seclusion is PERFECT and quiet! Close to EVERYTHING you want to do in the Hocking Hills! You will love it!

Our Book Group just celebrated our 100th book at Hidden Lake Lodge and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The view is beautiful and the lodge was perfect. The kitchen has everything you need, and there is plenty of seating for everyone. It's close to great hiking and the hot tub felt so good after! Can't wait to go back to Hidden Lake Lodge when it's not snowy.
