Thanks to unique sandstone outcroppings and cascading waterfalls, Hocking Hills is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Ohio.

Hocking Hills State Park and the lovely attractions of Hocking County are located about an hour south of Columbus. Known for can’t-miss spots like Cantwell Cliffs, Cedar Falls, and Ash Cave, there’s so much to see in and around the more than 2,000 acres that make up the state park! So much so that visitors typically need more than a day to thoroughly soak up the region’s natural beauty.

Staying in a classic cabin rental is a cozy way to get up close and personal to Ohio’s incredible, rugged landscape. And what’s better than a regular ole cabin? One with a bubbling hot tub, of course! A cabin with a hot tub means that you can relish in the comfort of upscale lodging and the rugged joys of untouched wilderness.

This ultimate list shares the best Hocking Hills cabins with hot tubs to help take the pain out of planning and ensure utmost relaxation during your trip.
