The Gingerbread Haus

So, after our leisurely drive to Hocking Hills this past Friday we finally arrived at our cabin around 3pm. Antoine and I were the first to arrive (since my parents, my sis and her husband had to work earlier that day). We were eager to explore and tour this adorable place.

The outside was cute, just as it appeared online. Very German looking and surrounded by trees.

At the back of the cabin their was a pretty substantial deck that overlooked a little fishing pond. The various tiers of the deck led to a screened in gazebo with a dining area, a hot tub, a small dock, and the main deck with a grill and lounge chairs.

The inside was much more roomy than I expected! And frankly, I felt like the property's online photos didn't do it justice (and neither do mine). It was roomy and beyond perfect with hard wood floors and rustic yet gorgeous wood beams and accents. Here's a picture of part of the spacious living room!

There were adorable little touches everywhere that made this cabin ideal, including these little lanterns that hung on either side of my parents bed.

Here's a peak into our room, which was very spacious with a king bed, a couch, two dressers and two closets.

Everyone had their own private bath, which is key for any family getaway! This is a peak into ours...I have a thing for vessel sinks!

I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to go to Hocking Hills with family and/or friends! There were three bedrooms (one on the main floor with a queen, two on the second with a king and another with three twin trundle beds), an extra daybed upstairs in the game room/office area, plus a sleeper sofa in the living room. Each of the bedrooms had a full private bath, plus there was an additional half bath just off of the living room. There was plenty of seating for 6+ people and the kitchen was large and accommodating! Plus, nearly everything you could imagine was included...from shampoo to laundry detergent to towels to parchment paper to ketchup! It was pretty awesome! I think there's a very good possibility that my family will make a visit to this cabin again in the future! Our stay was comfortable (read: very comfy beds) and relaxing...making for a great weekend!
