Indoor Hot Tub Room Construction
Indoor Hot Tub/Game Room Construction Blog

There are very few *couples-sized* rental cabins in the Hocking Hills that have an *indoor hot tub*. There are even fewer that have an indoor hot tub and a game room. Within the next few months, all 3 of our log cabin rentals will have *both* an indoor hot tub and a game room combined in one! (Please note: our Cuddle Bug Cottage hot tub porch is not included in this project and will remain completely open-air)

In September of 2019 we broke ground and undertook construction to enlarge the existing back porches (where our hot tubs are located) at our 3 log cabin rentals. When completed, they will be approximately twice the size they are currently, and *they will be completely enclosed and climate controlled*. They will be even more private than they already are. There will be multiple picture windows to maintain the beautiful view and there will also be windows that can be opened to let in the outside air on a nice day. In addition to the gliders/rockers that are already present, there will also be new tables and chairs where you can drink your morning coffee, eat a meal, or just relax and take in the beautiful view. Lastly, there will be several fun games to play in this new space.

We're very excited about these new improvements, and would love for you to follow along with our progress by viewing the pictures we will periodically be posting on this page. We are not able to *guarantee* an exact "complete-by" date for all 3 cabins, but we are hoping very much to have them all completed by the end of April, 2020. Check back often because one or more may be completed well before then!

PLEASE NOTE: If you are coming to stay at one of these cabins before we have completed construction, please be assured that we WILL NOT be working on them at your cabin while you're at your cabin enjoying your stay. We are strictly doing the construction work *between* cabin guest stays, which is why it will take several months for the projects to be completed.

NEW In Spring 2020: We're very pleased to announce that the Brand New Indoor Hot Tub & Game Rooms at all
3 of our Log Cabins are FINISHED!
