Why stay with The Chalets?
The Chalets is the preferred and most referred lodging in the Hocking Hills! Established in 1988 by a native Hocking County resident who helped to grow the hospitality industry for the region. Still family-owned and growing, the first 16 A-Frame cabins near Old Man's Cave have multiplied to include over 50 premier cabins in five locations with five swimming pools, throughout the Hocking Hills. Our dedicated team of 50 local associates ensures the quality, cleanliness, responsiveness and friendliness you experience as a guest of the Chalets. The Chalets continually invests in its properties - spending more than competitors on upgrades, on an annual basis.

A few require you to "unplug." See cabin listing details.
What is check-in time?
Chalets check-in begins at 4 pm. Because our teams cover significant distances between properties for pre-arrival inspections of Chalets and hot tubs, rarely can we offer early check-ins. If you are in the area before 4 pm, feel free to come by our office where we have maps to the State Parks and and other resources you may enjoy the Hocking Hills prior to check-in. Also, we recommend a stop at the Hocking Hills State Park's Visitors Center at Old Man's Cave, for world class geological, geographical and historical orientations to the region.
Is Hocking Hills dog friendly?
All area State Parks allow dogs on leashes. Conkles Hollow Nature Preserve does not allow pets. Many of our cabins are pet-friendly. If you would like to bring your fur babies with you, search our site with the pets filter applied. Or give us a call to find out what pet-friendly cabins are available for you.
