Frequently Asked Questions


What is your location? Are there any landmarks to help guide us?

Cell phone service is spotty at best in Hocking Hills, and GPS often does not work, so landmarks can help you find your way to Logan’s Retreat.

If you’re coming from US-33:

  • You’ll turn SOUTH onto OH-328
  • Follow 328 through Union Furnace (Starr Township)
  • Vickers Road will be on the right-hand side of the road just as you exit Union Furnace
  • If you see Stephens Body Shop, Kern Road, or Faith Road, you’ve gone too far
  • Once you turn on Vickers Road, Logan’s Retreat will be approximately one-half mile down on the right-hand side. It’s marked by a small sign bearing the name “Logan’s Retreat,” and there is a green dumpster. The driveway leads up a hill to the cabin

If you’re coming from OH-56:

  • You’ll turn NORTH onto OH-328
  • Vickers Road will be on the left-hand side of the road
  • If you get to “downtown” Union Furnace, you’ve gone too far
  • Once you turn on Vickers Road, Logan’s Retreat will be approximately one-half mile down on the right-hand side. It’s marked by a small sign bearing the name “Logan’s Retreat,” and there is a green dumpster. The driveway leads up a hill to the cabin

There are other ways to arrive at the cabin, but these are the two most popular.

HINT: Print directions using Google Maps before you leave; that way, if GPS doesn’t work you can easily find your way.

Do you have a firepit? Is firewood provided? Where can I buy firewood?

Yes, we have a firepit and some log seating. You’re welcome to bring more comfortable lawn chairs, if you’d like!

We do not provide firewood; however, firewood can be purchased at various locations around Hocking Hills. Check out the Camping Supplies section on the Hocking Hills Tourism Association website for firewood sellers.


What kind of grill do you have?

We have a propane grill. Extra propane is available in the cabin garage.


What kind of fish are in the pond?

Our pond is stocked with bluegill, bass, and catfish.


Do you provide bait or fishing poles?

We do not provide bait or fishing poles. Both can be purchased from local camping supply stores and Walmart in Logan. Sunoco on 328 (toward Logan) also sells bait.


The pond appears to be covered in lilies. Is it fishable?

We’re working on clearing the pond of lilies; however, the lily coverage is only in some spots and the pond is definitely fishable. Our children/grandchildren love catching bluegill at the pond (they often catch a dozen or more in an hour or so). That said, it is possible to snag your line if you do not avoid the lilies.


How does the fireplace work?

The fireplace is electric, and the controls are on the unit. It’s very easy to operate.


How far is the cabin from Old Man’s Cave and other Hocking Hills attractions?

Most Hocking Hills attractions can be reached within a 15- to 25-minute drive from the cabin.

Check out the Hocking Hills Tourism Association website for precise locations, and use Google Maps to estimate drive times.


How far is the cabin from Ohio University?

We’re located roughly 30 minutes from OU.


How old do you need to be to rent Logan’s Retreat?

How do I access the cabin?

Do I have to make payment in full as our initial payment?

Yes, we require your payment to be made in-full. Logan’s Retreat is in high-demand, and we ask our guests to commit to their stays to avoid turning away other guests who would otherwise book the cabin.


Do you allow pets? Will you make an exception for my pet?

As a rule, we do not allow pets at the cabin. However, on rare occasion we might consider allowing a single small pet for an additional cleaning fee. That said, any additional cleaning required or damages caused by pets will be deducted from your deposit.

We evaluate this on a case-by-case basis. If you absolutely must have your pet, and it is small and well-behaved, please contact us; however, in most cases we decline to allow pets.

That said, if you have a service animal we abide by all relevant laws – which dictate you will need to provide proof you have been prescribed a service animal.


Can I use your boat?

As of now, we do not allow the boat to be used on the pond. However, we’re looking into allowing it in the future.


What DISH Network channels do you offer? Can I watch the big game? Can I rent movies or use pay-per-view?

You can find a list of our DISH Network channels on the DISH website (America’s Top 120 plan, no extras). Please reference television schedules to determine whether games will be broadcast on these channels. We do not allow access to pay-per-view or movie rental features; however, we do offer two DVD players.


Is the hot tub functional in the winter?

Yes! The hot tub is functional in the winter, and it’s under the roof on the back deck (which is not enclosed), so you can enjoy the hot tub even if it’s raining or snowing.


Do you offer any additional services for special occasions and celebrations, such as honeymoons and wedding anniversaries?

We work to accommodate our guests as much as possible and would love to help you with special surprises or requests, whenever possible and available. If you’d like a bottle of wine from Hocking Hills Winery waiting for you, or something else, please let us know. Additional fees may apply.


What are you doing to help guests stay safe during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak?

Guest safety is one of our top priorities. Here’s what we’re doing to help keep guests safe:

  • Our cleaning team is paying extra attention to all high-touch surfaces including door handles, faucet handles, remote controls, games, etc.
  • Our cleaners use an EPA registered sanitizer
  • Our cleaners’ laundry facility uses commercial washing and drying equipment with the same chemical programs as most hotels across the United States. They have assured us that bedding and towels come out of the wash completely sanitized and ready for our guests

In addition, all Hocking County visitors are advised to wear masks and practice social distancing in public areas. Learn more
