Absolutely AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family & friends were extremely pleased with this cabin. It was way above our expectations. The hospitality was great from Jesse as well! Anytime I had a question, he answered right away. I would recommend this to everyone, no matter the age. I can't wait to go back! Thank you for everything!!!

The lodge exceeded our expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

Jesse was not aware that I was an event planner at one point in my life... so this review is an absolute honest one from a personal perspective and professional. The event was my wedding so expectations were very high. Jesse not only provided excellent customer service but the lodge was exceptional. We're already planning another event at New Years ... I'm going to try the other lodge he has. I would have some suggestions for Jesse regarding making the lodge into a " care free" experience... I would have paid a lot of money for the service of having a personal grocery shopper stock the cabin for us with a list provided. Just a thought for us higher maintenance guests... but that is not a negative comment... my entire family was very happy and comfortable. Thanks Jesse!!!!

Golden Bear Lodge Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is well appointed with space, amenities and privacy. We had a large family celebration with a party of 13 from all over the country that included 3 children. The basement was a wonderful entertainment space with arcade games, jukebox, and pool table and poker table. The kids and adults enjoyed hours of entertainment with easy access to outdoor space equipped with a porch swing and several rocking chairs from the lower level. A bedroom, bathroom, large couch, fridge and television made this an ideal family hangout space.

The main level had two bedrooms and two bathrooms along with a laundry room and living space. The kitchen was equipped with generous space for food prep and a large dining table to accommodate our entire party. The comfortable bar stools at the kitchen island provided additional seating and gathering space. The dining area is adjacent to a large wrap around deck with seating, grill and hot tub. This was a perfect space to lounge during the day. The living space had comfortable seating, and cozy fireplace.

The upper level was ideal for our family with children. A landing space in between two bedrooms was ideal for additional play space. There is a large bathroom with a tub upstairs. The kids slept upstairs and were not impacted by noise in the basement.

The owner’s communication was timely, thoughtful and detail oriented. We had a million questions prior to our arrival and every single inquiry was addressed in a timely fashion.

The local Amish furniture throughout the home is exquisite. The private pond, fire pit and expansive grounds make this listing an ideal location for respite and rejuvenation. There is excellent star -gazing from the deck.

Our only regret is not having more days to spend on this lovely property.

Great weekend away with friends

  • 5 of 5

19 of my friends and I wanted to get away for the weekend and enjoy eachothers company! We did just that! Jesse and Justin were great at responding to me for any of my needs/questions prior to going. The house was very comfortable and clean and kept us all pretty busy throughout the entire weekend. The guys really enjoyed the poker table and the basketball hoop and the ladies loved the hot tub! (which was very clean and spacious) Only issue we had was with the refrigerator not working properly but I spoke to Jesse about it and by the looks of it he will fix that right away i'm sure. We would all absolutely love to go back one day, and with it being so close to Cleveland it was only a short 45 min drive for us making it very convenient! Thanks again Jesse and Justin!

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.


• 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


• 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.
