If you follow this blog, you’ll know I enjoy seeking out unique lodging and I’m always on the lookout for fun places to stay in Hocking Hills. I’ve stayed in a castle, a caboose, recently added a Hocking Hills tiny house to my list. Wanna hear about it?
My husband and I were hosted during our stay at The Trillium but you can expect me to share my honest opinion. This post does contain affiliate links so if you click on the links, I may make a few cents if you make a purchase.
The Trillium tiny house rental is located in Hocking Hills and is one of three tiny houses currently available to book through Hocking Hills Tiny Houses.
My husband and I recently had the opportunity to stay in The Trillium which is located in the Campbell Cove Campground situated along Lake Logan. The campground is conveniently located within minutes of Logan, Ohio and about 15 minutes to some of the best hiking trails in the Hocking Hills area.
Peek Inside The Trillium Hocking Hills Tiny House
I also took notice of the fire ring with firewood and poles to roast your marshmallows (or hot dogs). And as a bonus, the tiny house is stocked with all the fixin’s for S’mores. How cool is that?
Stepping inside, I was quick to notice how spacious a tiny house could be. The Trillium sleeps four adults with a kitchen, a breakfast bar, a living area with a wrap-around couch that converts to a King-size bed, a sleeping loft with a full-size bed and a full bathroom with a shower.
The tiny house is equipped with air conditioning and heat which includes heated flooring. As someone who is always freezing, I found the tiny house super warm and cozy.
Windows are plentiful throughout The Trillium which open the space up to provide plenty of natural light.
The neutral decor is trendy, fresh, clean and welcoming. The Trillium had everything we needed for a comfortable overnight away from home.
The only thing my husband didn’t care for was that he had to sit down to pee due to the type of composting toilet that is in the tiny house. That’s a man for ya. At least, I didn’t have to worry about whether he put the toilet seat down or not.
I should also mention that you won’t find a TV in this tiny house. It certainly wasn’t a big deal for us as we often watch TV on my phone anyway. Thanks to our Netflix, Hulu & our Prime Video memberships we can watch movies anywhere. The Trillium had amazing wi-fi so we didn’t experience any lagging while watching our movie.
Plus, we had excellent cell coverage, which was a concern of mine before arriving at the tiny house. If you’ve visited the Hocking Hills area before you know it’s common not to have cell phone reception. I have Verizon and had 4 and 5G coverage the entire time we were at The Trillium.
I can’t say the same when we were hiking at Cedar Falls the next morning, but then one of the reasons I love visiting Hocking Hills is to truly get away from it all.
This was a super easy getaway to pack for. All we had to do was pack an extra outfit, a few snacks, our toothpaste & toothbrush and show up (as if I could ever pack that light). And we really didn’t need to pack snacks as bottled water, coffee, popcorn and the S’mores fixins’ I referred to above were all provided.
Since I had just picked up a new charcuterie board, I couldn’t resist packing a few items for an easy cheeseboard too. It paired perfectly with the wine our hosts provided us from Rockside Winery & Vineyards.
The tiny house provided silverware, dishes, basic toiletries and linens so we really just needed to show up. And because the key is located in a lockbox, this is truly a contact-free, socially distanced getaway for those ready for a getaway but not yet ready to see a lot of people.
We had planned to arrive at the Hocking Hills tiny house early in the day so we’d have plenty of time to hike and explore but we barely made it by sunset. The upside was that we arrived just as the sun began to set and the view through the trees to the lake was gorgeous.
We immediately decided that one visit simply isn’t going to be enough. We’re already planning a trip back this summer so we can kayak on Lake Logan with our new inflatable kayaks. You can also arrange for the hosts of the tiny house to drop off kayaks during warm weather as well.
Is Tiny Living for You?
Since my husband and I have been reading Nomad: Designing a Home for Escape and Adventure, I’ve been dreaming of living in a tiny house. As former full-time RVers and avid van campers, that should be the next logical step for us, right?
Maybe. But my husband is convinced that I could never downsize enough. Hmmm…do you detect a challenge?
If you have ever wondered what the tiny living craze is all about, a stay in one of these tiny houses is your chance to find out if this lifestyle may be for you.
At the very least, a stay in this tiny cabin on wheels provides a contact-free, socially distanced getaway option for those seeking an inexpensive Hocking Hills lodging option without sacrificing comfort. Rates start at only $119 so why not plan your next (or first) trip to Hocking Hills today? I’m not kidding when I say that once you visit the area you’ll be hooked.
