“Everything we expected and more”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We rented Golden Bear Lodge which is a very large log cabin for Thanksgiving with extended family and it was everything we expected and more. There were 16 of us and we never felt like we were on top of each other. All of us are gourmet cooks (not by profession) and found that the kitchen and its equipment met our our needs. The great room where the fire place is and the views through the windows were spectacular. The hot tub outside was on the deck and easy to access. We did have a minor issue with the water over flowing the tub hence we had to add water.

The added bonus was the video games in the basement - totally addicting!!

Granted the place is somewhat remote as it is near West Salem Ohio which is Amish country, we still found things to do nearby. This included hiking, checking out several Amish craft places nearby and outlet mall shopping.

Jesse - the owner was easy to work with and kept checking in with us by phone and answering my questions before and after we arrived.

Bottomline great place for extended families with older kids, college age kids, and/or a group of friends getting together to chill and relax.

“Fabulous friends and family celebration”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

From the moment we showed interest in the Golden Bear Lodge we were pleased. Jesse was exceptionally helpful and quick to answer any and all questions. After researching many Ohio locations, including Hocking Hills we found this to meet our needs. Little did we know at the time they would go above and beyond all
expectations. Spacious and comfortable with a feeling of high class accommodations. We traveled with 8 adults and 9 children, 7 of the 9 children were girls under the age of 5 so we were a little nervous, however there is something for everyone! The girls enjoyed the cubbies in the bedrooms as their secret hideouts and the boys spent hours building a fort in the woods.Our children enjoyed fishing and playing at the pond as well as riding bikes, playing sports games, and using the indoor video arcade games.This was truly a vacation from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, peaceful and serene with the luxury of a five star hotel we were beyond satisfied. The kitchen is fully equipped with any and all necessary cooking items with a table large enough to hold our group of 17. The bathrooms and bedrooms were spotless. We have been telling everyone about this secret just one hour and thirty-minutes north of Columbus. We plan on returning next year and continuing our friend/family tradition.

“Simply AMAZING!!”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Golden Bear Lodge is incredible! We hosted a retreat there for 15 women and we could not have asked for a better experience. The cabin was very clean and we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The lodge itself is breathtaking and the surroundings are beautiful in the fall. The women especially enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and sipping cocoa by the amazing fireplace. Jesse and Justin were both so helpful and accommodating to us~ the customer service is top notch! We've already planned our next stay!

“65 Acres of Bliss”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The photos just do not do this property justice. You just cannot believe how incredible it is. So picturesque and a work of function and art! Every amenity you could have imagined is right there. Fun place for a family get together or other group outing. Immaculate and inviting! Can't wait to go back. This would be an awesome place in the winter since the views are spectacular!

“What an Awesome place!”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our weekend at Golden Bear Lodge was awesome. From our very first contact with Jesse and Justin to the end of our Dinner Club weekend, it was a great experience. Jesse and Justin were kind enough to give us a tour of the Lodge in the dead of winter, even though we weren't planning a trip until fall. They talked me through the entire rental process and followed up on the day we checked out to make sure everything had gone well. We couldn't have asked for a cleaner or more well stocked place. From kitchen to bath rooms to game room! We had a bonfire in the fire pit , hiked in the woods, the guys golfed at a course in nearby Ashland and the girls did a little beading at the huge dining table! Throw in some wine and beer and everyone was happy. We loved the deck the swing and all the rockers. Had dinner in Wooster, which is only a half hour away, and did an afternoon tour of Loudinville, which is also not too far. You can be as busy or as not busy as you want. So very relaxing! Thanks Jesse and Justin....it was great!
