Our Favorite Romantic Getaway Cabins on Ohio
Hocking Hills State Park – Logan
By now you know that we love the Hocking Hills region. There are so many things to do: from Hocking Hills Romantic Getaways to winter activities in Hocking Hills, this is one area we return to over and over.
While there are many luxury cabins in this area, and we’ll get to those soon, you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy a romantic cabin getaway in Hocking Hills. The Ohio DNR operates 40 cabins, plus three camper cabins, inside the State Park, giving you easy access to the best trails and waterfalls of Hocking Hills. Each cabin has gas heating, air-conditioning, full kitchen and bathroom, sleeping room for up to six people, and a lovely screened-in porch with Adirondack chairs.

The Glenlaurel – Rockbridge
Another Hocking Hills option that is “cabin-ish” is The Glenlaurel, a luxurious Scottish Country Inn, which has crofts and cottages available for rent, in addition to rooms in the Inn.
What is a croft, you ask? Well, it’s a smaller version of a cottage. And a cottage is really just a cabin, right? All told, there are seven crofts and six cottages, each offering their own level of luxurious touches.
Each cabin is set in the woods, amongst private hiking trails. Guests enjoy a kitchenette, stone fireplace, two-person shower and a private deck with hot tub off the bedroom.
Read about our stay at the MacDougal croft at Glenlaurel. Additional amenities include a complimentary gourmet breakfast, Glenlaurel shortbread, snacks and beverages, and deluxe L’Occitane bath products. The crofts start at $265 per night and the cottages start at $319.
