One of our favorite cabins to stay at!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to The Golden Bear Lodge. We have had such a good experience starting from the booking process which is extremely easy and flawless, to setting everything up with the owners including our arrival and stay instructions. The lodge is very nice and well kept, with all the amenities you would expect, as well as lots of sleeping room for up to 20 people. We really enjoy the game room in the basement with the big screen TV and jukebox down there, as well as the poker table for the guys to relax. The Hot Tub is nice to have, no matter what the weather conditions (we visited once in Nov. 2015 and again in Jan. 2017). Hanging out is also fun in the big living area upstairs, while having a large family dinner was easy at the long dining table that accommodates everyone at once. It's unbelievable how cozy and remote this lodge feels, despite the LESS than 1 hr. drive from Cleveland and about 1 hr. 15 min. from Columbus. Definitely don't have to drive down to Hocking Hills to experience a good lodge. Thanks to the owners for the smooth and easy transaction and for making their property such a wonderful place for a large group getaway. We will return soon!

Relaxing getaway in a beautiful, large cabin

  • 5 of 5

So, this was our 2nd time staying at Golden Bear Lodge as we decided to do something a little different for Thanksgiving this year and take the show on the road with our extended family.

Pros:

• Beautiful, idyllic setting nestled in lovely Amish countryside

• Very large cabin that housed our entire party very comfortably

• Nicely manicured grounds

• Owner is incredibly responsive and communicative

• Remote enough to feel completely away from it all, but close enough to shopping if you need something

• Great Hot Tub

• Large fireplace

• Wi-fi

Cons:

• Pricey

• Some of the games in the game room were not operating properly

• Saw some mouse droppings in one spot

We had been to Golden Bear Lodge for our in-laws 50th wedding anniversary a couple years back. We loved it and decided to try again. It was a good call. The place has such a nice feel to it and they do a good job of having it very clean and orderly upon check in. You’d be hard pressed to find a nicer setting. Very rural, in Amish country, you feel as though you stepped back in time, yet we were 40 minutes or so from our home south of Cleveland. We checked in a couple days before Thanksgiving and were fortunate enough to see an Amish barn raising. There was seemingly eighty or so Amish that put up a huge barn in a day’s time….an experience we’ll never forget! Having stayed there for three nights, the place is large enough to give everyone their own space. My wife did all of the up front communicating with one of the owners…Jesse…and he was very responsive. I forgot some clothes I had hung up in one of the closets and I reached out to Jesse to retrieve them a few days after we checked out. Again, he was very easy to work with and allowed me easy access to the property to get the clothes. While this place certainly isn’t inexpensive, it’s easier to rationalize the cost when you have a larger party. It would have been nicer to have some of the games in the game room operating properly and Jesse indicated he would address that. We did see some mouse droppings in one spot only, but did not see mice, so it didn’t really detract from the experience at all….just wanted to mention it in the spirit of full disclosure. Again, Jesse was adamant that would be addressed immediately. All in all, a really nice time and really great memories that we can cherish for a long time. I would highly recommend Golden Bear Lodge.

Really Fun Place!

  • 4 of 5

We took a group from our youth group to stay here for a retreat, and we all had a blast! We loved the games in the basement and the fireplace in the living room. It was a great place for our group!

BEAUTIFUL. Can't wait to go again

  • 5 of 5

My family is still talking about our vacation almost a month later. There is 16 of us and there was so much room! The game room in the basement is awesome. And we loved the jukebox. Everyone was comfortable and there were no complaints.Every amenity was utilized. The best part was the HUGE dining table and the double coffee maker. We also caught a lot of fish! We all cannot wait to come back again next year. I would recommend this lodge in a heartbeat

Wonderful Family Reunion at Golden Bear Lodge

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Golden Bear Lodge for a family reunion (17 of us total, 9 were kids) and we all had a wonderful time. I was the one in charge of booking and communicating with Jesse and Justin, and they couldn't have been more responsive and helpful. All of my questions (and things I didn't think to ask) were answered quickly and professionally. Everything went as expected, no surprises or issues.

The lodge was beyond expectations. The layout was great, the furnishings and décor were excellent, the scenery was beautiful. I have stayed in several vacation rental homes over the years and this one was the best (cleanest, nicest) by far. It was not only exceptionally clean throughout, but the furniture was great quality . . . large comfy sectional in the basement, leather couches on the main floor, comfortable beds, etc. The layout was great too, it seems that whoever designed it really thought about what a vacationing family might need.

I also liked that a lot of the little things you might forget were taken care of (hand soap, toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent . . .all right there waiting for us). We did end up running to Walmart a couple times (an easy drive . . . watch out for all the horse and buggies!) for food runs, but other than that we stayed at the lodge. We took the kids on a hike, hung out in the hot tub (very clean and well maintained), had a dance party (the juke box was a BIG hit), blew bubbles off the back deck, caught fireflies in the big back yard, ate several meals at the huge dining table, and had a blast in the pond swimming and jumping off the dock.

We all agree that we want to come back again and I would definitely recommend it to friends.
