About the Chalets in Hocking Hills

The Chalets are private accommodations in Ohio’s beautiful Hocking Hills. With more than 50 options, you will find the perfect fit for your get-away – whether you’re looking for a romantic hideaway, a large family lodge or something in between.

All of our residences are close to the region’s state parks and nature preserves. They feature beautiful settings; private hot tubs; comfortable, updated finishes; and the support of the Chalets’ friendly and knowledgeable guest and maintenance staff – who ensure your stay exceeds your expectations.

The Chalets is a third-generation family-owned business, established in 1988 as Old Man’s Cave Chalets. We are proud that several of our guest families are third-generation, too – having made the Chalets an annual destination. We strive to support experiences that will inspire you to return, season after season.


Service Oriented Staff

The Chalets agents you’ll meet on the phone and at check-in are locals: They know intimately
the areas’ amenities, each Chalet’s features, and the scenic by-ways that connect them. They
answer questions not anticipated by the website, and are not afraid to offer their personal
opinions, to help you make the most of your visit to the region. Each morning, your chalet will be
visited by a member of the maintenance team, who will collect trash and service the hot tub. If
any concern arises during your stay, a staff member of the Chalets will answer your call.


Hot Tubs

Every chalet has a private, outdoor hot tub from which to enjoy the views – any time of day, any time of year. Every hot tub is serviced daily, by the Chalets’ maintenance staff.

Internet and Cell Phone Access

The Chalets invested in the best internet service that money can buy, in this area. Even so, it is not the consistency and bandwidth to which city folk are accustomed. Network coverage from the major carriers is spotty – especially in the valleys. So use your vehicle’s GPS and snap images of your phone’s turn-by-turn directions or website screens. Can’t unplug for your stay? Coverage in the Chalets’ Guest Registration office is better. Guests are welcome to sit on the porch or by the fireplace, to use it. For your safety, there are land-line phones in each residence.

DVD Rentals

Do not count on streaming video, given the sketchy data coverage. Before you leave home, download to your mobile device the latest binge-worthy episodes and your best kid distraction. All residences have televisions and satellite channels. DVDs are available to rent from the Guest Registration office.

Lobby & Gift Shop

The Chalets Guest Registration office offers some essentials – such as ice, fire starters and fire wood. For those other items you forgot, you may have luck at our next door neighbor’s convenience store. …especially if that item you forgot is ice cream! Want to remember your trip, with something that’s not consumable? Pick up a branded t-shirt, hat, mug or cozy robe.

Pool & Recreational Area – Free to our registered guests!

Arriving before check-in or just back from a hot hike? Enjoy the Chalets guests’ community pool, open from 10:30 am – 7:45 pm, Memorial Day through Labor Day. In addition to the community pool, each lodge has its own private pool.
