Our Cabin Rental Policies
Cabins in Hocking
‡ You must be at least 21 years old to rent a 4 person cabin or smaller. Anyone under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If the cabin sleeps 5 or more everyone must be at least 25 to stay at the cabin unless you are a related family member, in other words families with kids are fine, but groups of 17-24 year olds that are not related are not(we do not want wild parties). We do not allow parents to rent cabins for their 17-24 year old children and their friends. If you would like to call me and pay a $1,000 refundable Security Deposit, then please feel free to do so. If more people are at the cabin than what was paid for you will be asked to leave immediately without refund. If the police need to be called you will be asked to leave without refund.
‡ Please refer to the individual cabin pages for rates.
‡ A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking unless it is less than 30 days from arrival, in which case full payment is due at time of booking. A 6%-13% lodging tax is added to rates, depending on the cabin, Ohio law states that if a cabin owner owns more than 5 cabins, there is an additional 7% tax to be charged. Only the Retreat cabins have the 13% rate. CABIN AT THE CAVERN cabin has zero tax due to it being just over the county line.
‡We prefer Debit cards and allow customized payment plans if you use one, otherwise we accept, Mastercard, Visa, Discover, cash, check and PopMoney(way to send money quickly through your bank).
‡ Weekend stays require both Friday and Saturday nights. If you choose a Thursday/Friday or Saturday/Sunday stay both nights will be charged at the weekend rate. WEEKEND DAYS ARE FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. When you start your stay on Sunday you get the Weekday Rate. In the Peak Season Thursday, Friday and Saturday stays are all at the weekend rate.
*LAYAWAY PROGRAM-You must use a DEBIT CARD, you may put down $100 at the time of booking and make weekly, bi-weekly or monthly payments. just tell Beth how you want to set up the plan in the Special Needs box at the time of booking, otherwise she will charge you half at the time of booking or more if it is less than 30 days from arrival. NOTHING IS CHARGED AUTOMATICALLY, BETH DOES ALL THE CHARGES. You will need to have at least half of the total paid at 30 days before arrival. Stays that are less than 30 days are not eligible for layaway.
‡ ONE NIGHT STAYS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES;
