The Hocking Hills are a premier vacation destination for those looking to get in touch with the natural world. Whether you are a rugged outdoorsy type or simply looking to get out of town and stop to smell the flowers for a while, Logan, Ohio, and the surrounding Hocking Hills area are ideal for a getaway. From breathtaking waterfalls like Cedar Falls, which invariably instill a sense of wonder in all who behold them, to imposing geological features, the natural beauty here has no peer for hundreds of miles.
Activities include hiking trails of every conceivable difficulty level, hunting, climbing, mountain biking, and streams and rivers for fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and swimming. Whatever your favorite outdoor activities are, there are plenty of opportunities to indulge in beautiful Hocking Hills State Park.
Notably, the park (just 12 miles from downtown Logan) has done a tremendous job making the area accessible. Visitors dependent on wheelchairs can gape at the monumental Ash Cave and sit in awe at the water spraying down in the Conkle’s Hollow Gorge. Many miles of trails are paved and totally wheelchair accessible.
To get the most out of this awe-inspiring area, consider staying in a cabin as grand as the park itself. These vacation rentals include modern amenities like Wi-Fi and air conditioning, and some even have hot tubs perfect for relaxing after a day full of outdoor adventures.

Retired from sailing the world’s seas, it has been transformed into a lovely cabin in the wood, just a few miles from the parks and stables which make the Hocking Hills the lovely place that it is.
It is bright and really quite cozy. They’ve added windows, a gas fireplace, bright decor, and so much more. The outdoor area is excellent as well. It has a fire pit, hot tub, grill, and seating area.

Secluded 100 Acre Cabin$336/nightly avg
Located at the very end of a country road, this two-story cabin promises privacy and affords visitors lots of room to roam. The main level is 100 percent classic cabin design with exposed beams, leather sofas, a traditional fireplace, and a rustic wooden loft area.
The lower level, which has a beautiful wooden bar, sectional sofas, and a 70-inch TV, is more modern. Enjoy easy access to the outdoors. Guests get to enjoy 100 acres of hillside complete with a creek and also have nearby trails in Tar Hollow State Forest. The Hocking Hills park is a bit further away but very much accessible.
The Ravine$176/nightly avg
Popular with honeymooners but great for couples taking trips for any occasion, this large cabin is just what comes to mind when you imagine a comfortable cabin in the woods. The king-sized bed is nestled in a lofted area which gives the main room its high ceiling. There’s a private fire pit and a communal pool is a short walk away.
The lovely wrap-around covered deck is a great place to sit and enjoy the forest and has a nice hot tub in one corner. And in just a few minutes of driving, you can reach the park, climbing area, stables, Rose Lake, and more.
A-Frame On Heigle Road$130/nightly avg
It’d be difficult not to feel right at home in this cozy A-frame cabin. The traditional A-frame style is complemented by a rough stone facade around the front door, providing the Hocking Hills with yet another picturesque sight. There’s a bedroom on the ground floor and another in a lofted area of the main room (which has a 20-foot ceiling). Add in the covered hot tub, and you get the ideal cabin for a romantic getaway.
The location is not to be scoffed at either. It’s just 2 miles from the park and a short walk away from the general store.
Hickory Grove Cabin$175/nightly avg
The highlight of this secluded cabin is probably the small, private fishing pond located just yards away from the front door. Large and homey, this is an exceptional bargain for a family or larger group of travelers. The furnishings are all in classic cabin styles, perfect for those looking for a cozy and rustic accommodation.
Beyond the pond, the property features a hot tub, fire pit, and full-length porch. The main area of the state park and associated hiking trails are about 15 minutes away by car. Cantwell Cliffs, with its zipline, imposing rocks, and trails of its own, is even closer.
Parker’s Point$599/nightly avg
A unique take on the woodsy cabin trope, this three-story building offers a different kind of backwoods experience. Parker’s Point is a thoroughly modern accommodation with luxurious bathrooms and a welcoming back deck. There are two queen bedrooms, making the place great for pairs of couples traveling together. Other amenities include a fire pit, hot tub, and outdoor grill. All of the Hocking Hills’ most famous attractions are no more than 6 miles away. A good fit for those who feel that a week in the woods doesn’t have to translate to modest or rustic living.
Hidden Ridge Cabin at Big Pine Retreat$167/nightly avg
A genuine little log cabin in the woods, this is a great place for a retreat. Enjoy the seclusion and peace of life in the forest in this recently renovated cabin. Those renovations haven’t changed the cabin’s rustic character, however. The amenities (including the hot tub) are modern, but, with its exposed beams and unvarnished wooden walls, it is still very much a cabin. Tucked away in a narrow strip between a state park and a nature preserve, it offers easy access to the area’s hiking trails. Chapel Cave is just down the road.
Waterfront Home On 82 Acre Patch$523/nightly avg
The Hocking Hills and surrounding area have more going for them than anyone can see in one trip. This single property has a lot going for it as well. The 82-acre lot is crisscrossed with trails. After suffering extensive tornado damage in 2019, the place is better than ever (don’t worry; it is fully repaired and was modernized in the process). The house juts out over a fishing pond (one of two on the property) and sits against a hill that offers excellent views at sunrise, sunset, and any other time of day. If you have a big group that appreciates privacy at home, definitely take a look at this house.
