Uncomfortable and Creepy

  • 2 of 5

To start, the pictures are misleading. If you believe this is a grand home nestled in the hills of the country, it is not. It is right off a rather busy country road.

The first thing that greets you is a sign telling you to stay off the grass. Then one to stay off the mulch. Okay, we get it. But the signs don't stop, making your stay completely uncomfortable. There is, literally, a sign telling you where you can poop. No joke. There were over 30 signs in addition to the "welcome" book. We did not feel welcome. Don't get me started on the creepy surveillance equipment. It's not that clean and the furniture (beds and couches) warn out. Instead of trying to control quality with your signs, build it in using the deposit when problems arise. This place would have do much potential in different hands.

We will NOT be back. Super unfriendly.

Owner's Response: 50 (5) star ratings cant be wrong.As you can see we cannot control what people review. If the pictures were misleading why does the Guest say that under other management this place would have so much potential.Thru-out the reviews you can read where customers have stated it was exactly as shown and stated . Please understand at times Things happen.This guest is clearly upset with me personally on an other issue. We also have "50" 5 Star reviews.Please take the time to read them! Our home "is" nestled in a beautiful Country Setting. Yes it is located off of 93 S and is located Exactly in the Middle of the Hocking Hills. This road makes easy access to all Hocking Hills has to offer and easy access for the winter. During the day there is some traffic If you would even want to call it that. By evening it is completely quiet. The grand Tara Lodge has been the #1 booked lodge for 9 straight years. Virtually all our customers return each year again and again. Our Extensive entertainment requires signs about (8) with directions. Many times I have been thanked for there direction. Our Surveillance cameras are on the Parking Areas Only and that is stated in our policy. These Cameras are to protect the Interest of our Lodge and Guest. (GUEST) who may be less than honest about there guest count. This Guest was also DISGRUNTLED ABOUT OUR VERY STERN NON SMOKING POLICY AND NO SMOKING SIGNS.

Our group of 21 enjoyed all that Tara offered

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Grand Tara for a large group. We had 21 in our group and there was plenty of room. The accommodations were excellent and we enjoyed all the amenities that Grand Tara had to offer. The local hiking at Hocking Hills was fabulous. I would recommend this beautiful property for a large group. It exceeded our expectations.

Great memories!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing. Great place for a get together for any occasion. Fun games and entertainment throughout the lodge. Planning to visit often. It's close enough to the parks but secluded.

Great place to relax. We came here and didn't know what to expect. We soon found out it was a great vacation spot. My wife and I tied the knot here. Was very impressed. I totally recommend the Grand Tara. Kelly is easy to get along with. Very helpful in every aspect. Thanks again for the great experience.
