About Dorcas Kurtz

My husband and I have been married for 20 years, and we have 6 children. Nine years ago we moved to the Hocking Hills, Ohio area to help with a new church plant. We fell in love with the area and with both of us comimg from large families, we began dreaming of owning a property for large families, church groups, etc. to gather to enjoy the beautiful area.

Dorcas Kurtz purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Dorcas Kurtz chose Ohio

In the Hocking Hills area there is lots and lots of beautiful scenery, hiking, waterfalls, and caves. The famous outdoor drama Tecumsah is just 25 minutes away.

Perfect for our Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Tanglewood was the perfect place for our Ladies Retreat! So spacious and comfortable! All the comforts of home with a vacation feel. The kitchen is very well equipped! Very convenient and easy to maneuver with the labeled cabinets. Loved the large dining room table! So fun to have everyone around one table at meal time! We had a wonderful retreat and hope to return in the future.

Our homechurch met here for the weekend, this is our 3rd year in a row, 35 plus people. We so appreciate everything about this house. YOU MUST TRY IT!!! I know of no other place that makes you feel so at HOME when you are away from home. You will not be disappointed! We had ages 4-74! All were happy.

Plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

We went to hike the weekend with a group of 39 people from our church and chose Tanglewood as the house we would stay in. The house was in a great location putting us within a 20 minute drive to all the areas we hiked including Old Man's Cave. The house was big enough that each family (9 in total) was able to have their own room and bathroom. We used the 10th room for 5 teenage boys that was with us. The kids enjoyed the slide and game room while others played basketball. We were able to cap the night off with s'mores around the fire pit. There was plenty of seating in both the dining area's and family room. This is a great house for large groups! We look forward to going back and staying at Tanglewood Manor!

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Tanglewood Manor is a great place for a family vacation. We had five families that included 10 adults and 10 children (ranging in ages of 22 months to 17 years). There was space for napping for the younger ones and they were not disturbed by the older ones playing ping pong, etc. This house is so spacious that we did not feel we were on top of each other. Plenty of things for all the different age groups to do. The kitchen was wonderful with a supply of all kinds of dishes, pans, etc. The 2 refrigerators were really nice as we brought in all of our food and cooked all our meals. The beds were comfortable and so were the other furnishings of the house. It rained a couple of times but there are games, books, etc. in the house to keep all of us entertained. When we were outside, we enjoyed playing volleyball, basketball, soccer and the little ones liked the playset. There is a tiny little creek that a few of the grandkids enjoyed. We spent our time going hiking at various parks nearby. We even found a small church not too far away that we were able to attend together. We made so many memories and took lots of pictures. This is an excellent place for a family to go to together. Thanks to the Kurtz family for providing this "home away from home".

I can not express how wonderful this experience has been for our family. We have been getting together every Easter for 15 years. We love to go to different places and see different attractions. In 2014 we found Tanglewood Manor. LOVE IT. The place is beautiful, has plenty of room, hugh yard for the kids to play in, great kitchen, wonderful beds etc. I could go on and on. To make a long story short my family no longer has the interest of trying out different places and seeing different sites. We have rented Tanglewood in 2014, 2015 and rented again in 2016. Thanks to the Kurtz's family for making out stay very comfortable and enjoyable. You are the greatest.

What an excellent place to make memories and getaway! As 18 adults gathered at Tanglewood there was so much room to spread out - enjoy private conversations or all together. We had several 25-30yr olds and never a bored moment! No cell phone reception and the tv was only on for one movie...and no one missed it! We only had 2 children but they had so much room to move about, there is a little toy/play nook full of toys and a special play table. Don't pack their toys as we did! We had an infant and there were several pack n plays so we could have one upstairs for sleeping and one downstairs with us for napping even! The gaming room looks a tad cramped from the pictures but it isn't. There was a lot of fun there! The kitchen had plenty of work space and everything you needed for preparations. Everything about the manor was spacious! The towels and beds were all very nice...even down to nice toilet paper! The larger of the two dining rooms sat all of us which was appreciated. Everything you need is here to enjoy a weekend in but your food! The owners called to check on us that evening, we have never had that in places we've rented. They were very prompt in responses beforehand as well. I can't say enough about how clean the manor was. Spotless. There really was not one spec of dirt, everything was as you would have it in your own home. The only negative things we found were, #1 the manor is hard to find in the dark. Some of our guests arrived after dark and passed it a few times. You can't see the house number until you turn into the drive. Even the road sign is difficult to see so pay attention. And a welcome sign or such might be a suggestion as people don't know in what door to enter the manor. #2 The water. That's the only thing negative at all about the manor and it is a negative. We didn't even drink coffee from the filtered water, it is bad, so go prepared to use a lot of bottled water. We had to make a trip to town to get more as it wasn't drinkable at all. We live in the country and are used to country water but not this. It left the dishes with a white film on them and you felt like you were using dirty plates but you'd just ran them thru the dishwasher. Of course it effected showers too... but it didn't at all ruin our weekend, you can deal with it......this is a blessed, peaceful haven of retreat that I would definitely give 5 stars, even with the water situation. God bless you for the love you pour into this lovely home for others to enjoy.
