The Pines Lodge is near and dear to our hearts because it is one of the first properties we added to our portfolio. The moment we saw the picturesque views of Sand Run Lake, the surrounding pine forest, and the two private ponds – we instantly fell in love with the property. We wanted other people to be able to experience Hocking Hills and Wayne National Forest just like we have been able to. Here you can create the perfect intimate getaway, start a family tradition, or host a large family gathering. We completely renovated the inside of this cabin and continue to update the property so our guests can enjoy Hocking Hills like never before.

Our 8-person White Tail sits on the same 7-acre property with the Pines Lodge. Our 6-person Sandy Run Cabin is located just down the road. You can rent all three properties for a large group getaway! Make sure you contact us about booking all three cabins for a large group getaway!

A unique feature about the Pines Lodge is that it is located in an ATV Friendly area. The Monday Creek Trail System is located 1-mile away from the cabin. Wayne National Forest offers over 75+ miles of designated trails for off-road riders. Guests can ride directly from the cabin to the nearest trailhead. If you have your own off-road vehicle, bring it to experience Wayne National Forest.

Guest Reviews

The Pines was an amazing place to stay. We loved the seclusion of the property especially with the winter snow falling. It’s in close proximity to hiking locations. We found the cabin to be clean and comfy.
