Just booked our third time!

  • 5 of 5

Grand Tara Lodge is now part of our Annual holiday tradition! There is so much to do for every member of the family. The pool table and huge TV, the hot tub, the karaoke, and new this year, the basketball court.

Our family believes one of the reasons the lodge stays in such great condition is because the owner gives clear directions as to how to keep the it nice. Another review mentioned the signs at the property. These are not a big deal. If people come to my house, I ask them to smoke outside, it's common sense. The majority of the "rules" most likely had to be posted because someone didn't use common sense, or have respect for the property.

Fabulous Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Grand Tara last weekend for birthday celebratuons, and the place is absolutely fabulous! I have never seen so much in one place! Basketball, Dodge ball, pool, sauna, hot tub, volleyball, fire pit... and that's just on the outside! There's karaoke, which was absolutely hilarious.. especially with the electric guitars. And in between, we played air hockey, ping pong and pop a shot! Then off to the basement for Pool, shuffle board and a few movies on the monster screen! Didn't have time for poker! It close to everything, and right on the main road so you don't get lost in the wood, yet still seemed secluded. They have a camera in front to be sure your cars are safe.... great idea if I must say! Kelley made sure that everything was perfect, and even checked back to be sure we had a great time. Can't wait to go again! They've thought of everything!

Owner's Response: Our Sheriff Office in the Hocking Hills after seeing Our security Camera's on all Our parking Area's Said that was the absolute best way to secure our guest that they have seen. They thanked us and said that they wish all Hocking Hills Lodges would follow suit. It actually Helped solve a supposed missing person report. The person was never missing and had just got in an argument and left the lodge without notice to any of the other guest. It actually was reported in The Paper and praised by Sherriff Dept. Creepy I dont think so.

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: To start We would like to Thank the Customer for their Zealous review I will be kind and professional and not mention a reason Why they are saying the direct opposite of the rest of our customers that return every year.The Grand Tara Lodge requires "signs" (4 inside the lodge) or Directions because of our extensive entertainment. We have (4 outside). I have seen her post on Our Pool rule sign, "required by the state". Sauna sign "required by the state" Hot tub Sign "required by the State" a do not park on the grass sign "Required to Keep people off the Grass and damaging the lawn." Our property is huge. Our Lodge is huge. Our amenities are endless. There has to be signs for direction and to protect the property and the guest. Other lodges have a fireplace, a pool table and a Hot tub. They dont require signs like we do . Tara has a Barrel sauna, a european spa, a swimming pool, a football field , a soccer field, a indoor basketball court under a/c and heat, tetherball, horeshoe pit, fire pit, Air Hockey, a Very high end Karaoke system, a ping pong table a pool table , a poker table a Horse arena with Horse Live horses, Real steel tipped darts, Musical instruments, A pacman arcade , a Real skeeball machine, a pop shot indoor basketball game, tons of board games, Hiking trails, and many more things. We have to have some signs. REALLY I Humbly ask other possible future guest to please look at the other (50) Five star ratings.These statements simply are not True. This guest was disgruntled. I wish them the best

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.
