Overview

About the property

Welcome to Gil's Getaway!

*** Please read this entire description before booking, and feel free to ask me any questions you might have! ***

This simple cottage is located on 21 scenic acres to allow hiking, campfires, grilling out, or taking a nice soak in the relaxing hot tub! It is located in South Bloomingville, OH, a mere 4 miles from Old Man's Cave, Ash Cave, Conkle's Hollow, and many other local attractions.

Plates, bowls, utensils, coffee maker, toaster oven, and trash bags are included.

The cabin has central air conditioning, an electric central furnace heater, ceiling fans, wood burner, leather couch and recliner, porch swing, and a picnic table out back! It has beds to sleep 7 (please see below for a description of the bedding arrangement), has satellite TV in the living room and the bedroom, a stereo system with AUX input, DVD player, full kitchen with range, refrigerator, and microwave. Outside there is ample space for a nice campfire to roast hot dogs and make S'Mores! Jim-Bo's bar and grill is right next door within walking distance if you so desire!

Bedding arrangement: There are a total of 5 mattresses on which to sleep: 1 queen size bed in the bedroom (sleeps 2), 2 twin bunkbeds in one corner of the greatroom (sleeps 2), 1 twin bed in the opposing greatroom corner (sleeps 1), pullout full size couch (sleeps 2) {Entire cabin sleeps 7}

Please note: I have very good feedback and I pride myself in trying to make sure folks enjoy their time here. I will do my best to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. In order to achieve that, I want to make sure you are aware of a few items:

The water pressure can be low at times. It is fed by a well that is some distance away and at a lower elevation. Depending on when the well pump runs, this can leave the cabin with low pressure, especially in the shower. It usually gets better the next time the well pump runs, however, so I thank you for your patience in advance with the water pressure! :)

The cottage is in a rural setting. It is located in the middle of a wooded area, where it is moist and the cabin itself sometimes gets little sun. Therefore the cabin can at times be slightly damp upon arrival, but it does have full central air conditioning (as well as an electric furnace) for your use when you are there.

The floor of the cottage is concrete, and the walls are concrete block but covered on the inside and outside to have a rustic wooden feel. The floor being concrete makes it very convenient for the cleanup of messes such as mud and dirt from hikes around the property and the local attractions. This was the former owner's personal hunting cabin, so it is simple and primitive. Yet it has all you need to get out into the nature of Hocking Hills!

As shown in the images, the back yard / fire pit area does not have a fence or barrier around its perimeter. There is not a "cliff" style dropoff here, but as in most places in hocking hills, there is a slope off the back yard area and downhill side of the cabin. Please be aware of this if you are planning on bringing young children to be present in the back yard area.

At times the satellite TV signal might be weak, or an item within the cabin might not be functional. Items such as these will be addressed ASAP by the property managers, and I will always do my best to make sure you are notified prior to booking.

The bathroom has recently been updated to accommodate those who are in a wheelchair or have mobility challenges (but these additions are not yet reflected in the images). Two grab bars have been installed in the shower stall. Two flip-down grab bars and a rear grab handle have been installed for the toilet area. To use the flip-down bars, simply lift up on the bars and allow them to slowly drop into position, and then push the bar toward the wall to lock it in place. To raise the bar, pull it away from the wall, raise it, and then allow it to drop into position for storage.

Finally, my property is not a rustic log cabin with all of the finished touches of one. However, you will see that my nightly price is one of the least expensive in the Hocking Hills region. I am very close to the caves. I do not charge for additional people OR pets. I do hope you enjoy your stay!

Don't delay! Get out to the Hocking Hills!

Cabin

  • 5 of 5

It was awesome! We had some bad weather and street flooding but Dan was awesome and kept us up to date on what was happening as well as options to have a great weekend! Being college students the cabin was perfect to hang out and it being so close to the trails was super cool! Definitely recommend.

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My fiancé took me here for my birthday weekend and the cabin was great! We were sent a very detailed email that helped us find our way easily. Everything was super clean and tidy. The only downside was the cement flooring but that's an easy fix if you bring some slippers. Great location near trails and the hot tub was fantastic. Would recommend to any couple or small group looking to get away for a few days!
