"This house is truly one of a kind - fish pond, massage chairs, and loads of natural light!! We loved that about the home the most. The owners have kept the property very clean & more than stocked with towels for 10 people - hot tubbing & swimming included. The kitchen is stocked with everything imaginable, including tools for grilling out. There was nothing we could not find to make a huge 4 course dinner one night. The linens on the beds were incredibly soft - which is something I normally have an issue with at many hotels, rentals, etc. This property is also near everything! We were less than a 20" drive from Hocking Hills state parks, and less than 10" from restaurants, zip-lining and stores. Great location!!
One thing I will mention is that the home itself does not have a large area for entertaining or playing games, etc. The fish pond & massage chairs take up the front half of the house, leaving a small area in the back for the living area. We had a party of 8 adults & it was cramped to have us all in the living room at once. We had to pull chairs from the dining room and sit on the floor to play games. We did manage to squeeze all of us at the dining table, but we had to bring in another chair and sit pretty close to each other. The ad says that you can bring 10 max, but I don't think it would be comfortable with that many people, unless you were using the outside the whole time.
When we were there, the heat index was over 100 degrees, so we only used the patio for grilling. But there again, there is only seating outside for 6. There is a beautiful fire pit area down below but was too hot for us to take advantage of.
I would like to point out that the 3rd bedroom upstairs is in a loft area over the living room. It may have said that on the website, but if so, I missed that. It worked well for us bc we had young unmarried adults. But if you went with all couples, that may be a drawback. There is no privacy, so that should be taken into account.
I sent a note with some issues to the owners & they were aware of them, and in the process of fixing them. The back glass doors had broken seals and you were not able to see thru them. They said they already have them on order. And the shower heads were not functioning properly but they were going to check that out right away.
The reason I give it 4 stars is because of the size of living space. And the fact that there is just a small portable Weber grill on the deck. Overall, the property was beautiful!!"
