The following information will help you have a relaxing getaway. If you have any questions that are not answered here, please feel free to call or email us.
WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET:
So many of our guests comment that they are amazed when they get to their cabin and find that “it’s exactly like on the web site”! Well, that’s because it is! We take the photos ourselves and try to keep them updated and fresh! Because of the homey nature of our cabins, each one has its own special characteristics. Find one made just for you!
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT TIMES:
Check-in time is 4:00 PM or after. Check-out time is by 11:00 AM. We cannot accommodate early check-ins or late check-outs. You are expected to leave the cabin in the condition in which you found it with dishes washed and trash in proper receptacles. Please secure the cabin when departing.
Our cabins are located on individually owned, private and secluded properties in The Hocking Hills of southeastern Ohio. Our cabins are not grouped together so you will have your own private haven. The cabin properties range from 3 acres all the way up to 83 acres per property. Some cabins even have their own hiking trails. You will be given exact directions to your cabin. Addresses of cabins are NOT given out prior to check-in.
Each cabin has a maximum number of guests allowed. NO VISITORS ALLOWED, registered and paid guests only, please.
Smoking is prohibited at ALL cabins. Smoking is permitted outside on the decks, ashtrays or sand pails provided. Please respect our properties and do not litter the area with cigarette butts.
Pets are allowed at select cabins. (See OUR CABINS for complete list) There is a one time $30 pet fee per pet (maximum 2 please). We allow well mannered and housebroken pets. Pets must be noted on your reservation and pre-approved by Lazy Lane Cabins. If a pet is found in a non-pet friendly cabin, there will be a $60 charge and you may be asked to leave. Pets are not to be left alone in cabin unless they are crated. Your pets are more than welcome to visit the trails and state parks as long as they are on a leash. Please note that pets are NOT permitted in the State Nature Preserves, such as Conkle’s Hollow and Rock Bridge.
WHAT IS SUPPLIED AT YOUR CABIN:
All of our cabins are completely furnished. The kitchens are fully equipped with a refrigerator, stove, coffee maker (with filters) and a microwave. The kitchens are equipped with basic cookware, dishes, utensils, pots and pans. We provide a starter supply only of paper towels, toilet tissue and dishwashing soap. Towels and linens are provided. Each cabin has a grill, charcoal or gas as indicated on the cabin’s page. Please do not use charcoal in the gas grill. If there is a specialty item you need for cooking we suggest you bring it with you.
SUGGESTED ITEMS TO BRING:
Food (including coffee/tea), toiletries (we do not provide bath soap), DVDs, beach towels, flashlight, games and books, camera, binoculars, hiking boots, bug spray, matches and a prepaid calling card (see Telephones). All of our cabins have well water and although the water is perfectly safe, you may want to bring bottled water.
Please PRINT OUT our check list of items to bring to make "cabin life" more comfortable.
All cabins have hot tubs (with the exception of the Windsong & Echo. Hot tubs are operational year round. Hot tubs are cleaned and sanitized prior to and after each guests’ use. For extended stays, your hot tub will be checked on the third day of your stay and every other day thereafter. Proper chemical maintenance of hot tub water is necessary to maintain safe water and prevent possible damage to hot tub components. Please abide by hot tub procedures, rules, and precautions.
We do not provide daily maid service. Your cabin will be cleaned especially for you prior to your arrival. We will do everything we can to make sure your cabin is ready for your stay. It is our mission to provide you the cleanest cabin in the Hocking Hills so that you will become a guest for a lifetime. However, there are rare occasions that your cabin might not be fully presentable by 4 p.m. or when your hot tub won't be warm until later in the evening.
All of our cabins have satellite television with the exception of Windsong and Echo camping cabins. From time to time, satellite TV, appliances, hot tubs, water and electricity etc. will break down or malfunction. While we can not refund any monies due to these issues that may be beyond our control, we will respond as quickly as we can to make repairs and restore amenities. Due to the nature of our surroundings satellite TV is not guaranteed.
Most of our cabins have some type of fireplace. Electric fireplaces are operational year round. Gas and wood burning fireplaces are seasonal.
Most cabins have a fire pit for camp fires. We do not supply firewood. You can purchase firewood locally. We ask that you DO NOT bring firewood from out of the area. Exotic insect pests like Emerald Ash Borer are a major threat to Ohio’s 19 million acres of forest. The Emerald Ash Borer, as well as other invasive insects, can become established when infested firewood is transported to new areas. Please obey Smokey Bear’s camp fire safety rules of the forest and make sure you douse your camp fire completely before leaving your cabin or going to bed.
Some of our cabins have telephones. The phone can be used for local, toll free and emergency 911 calls only. You may or may not have cell phone service in the area due to the hills and forest.
FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND:
You will find a full color magazine, the Hocking Hills Visitor’s Guide, in your cabin. This guide includes maps of the area and info on all the attractions. The roads in the Hocking Hills region are very hilly and winding. Most of our driveways are gravel and there are gravel roads around the area. Main routes are paved and well maintained roads. Take some time to explore our back roads and see some out of the way sights.
In Logan you will find a super Wal-Mart (Intersection of Routes 33 & 664) and Kroger (Route 664N across river, turn left) There are a few general stores located throughout the hills and parks area, within a short drive of most cabins.
There is a wide variety of restaurants to choose from in the area from fine dining to fast food. The Visitor’s Guide supplied in your cabin also has a section for dining. Also, please visit our link for Things to Do.
In Logan you will find Speedway at Routes 93 & 33 and at Route 664 N. There is a gas station at the Wal-Mart at Routes 33 & 664.
Unfortunately we do have electrical outages once in awhile. We suggest you bring a flashlight for emergencies. From time to time, satellite TV, appliances, hot tubs, water and electricity etc. will break down or malfunction. While we can not refund any monies due to these issues that may be beyond our control, we will respond as quickly as we can to make repairs and restore amenities.
WOODLAND CREATURES AND INSECTS:
We do have our cabins professionally exterminated, but they are not bug or mouse proof. Please remember you are in the forest, and we have invaded their habitat, so chances are you will see insects, spiders, or mice. You most likely will encounter various woodland creatures such as deer, wild turkey, raccoons, squirrels and a wide variety of birds for bird watching. Please do not feed or approach wildlife. Do not leave food out at night, you may have uninvited guests at your cabin.
Our cabins are open year round. Winter is one of the most beautiful seasons in the hills, with the forest open to view the ridges and wildlife. A few of our driveways are steep, but we do our best to keep snow and ice removed so that your cabin will be accessible. No refunds due to inclement weather.
HUNTING, FIREARMS, FIREWORKS AND ATV’S:
Hunting, firearms, including paintball and air guns, and fireworks are NOT permitted on any of our properties. You may bring your ATV to the property, but you cannot ride it on the property. There are ATV trails in the Wayne National Forest near Nelsonville about a half hour drive from most cabins. Please see our THINGS TO DO link.
SWIMMING and FISHING:
We do not have swimming pools at our cabins. We have a few cabins that have ponds for either fishing or swimming (at your own risk). Lake Logan is also nearby and has a public beach, fishing and boat rentals. No fishing license is required at our cabins since they are on private property, but you will need a license at Lake Logan.
You can also schedule a private massage in your cabin. Please refer to our Romantic Add-Ons link.
THE APPALACHIAN AREA:
“The Hocking Hills region is in Appalachia, an area rich in history, cultural diversity, arts, craftsmen and beautiful scenery. You may find that we live “life in the slow lane” so please breathe in our clean fresh air, relax and enjoy our beautiful surroundings that we call home. Please enjoy your visit with Lazy Lane Cabins. We look forward to having you! ”
