Serene woods with hiking trails, privacy, and beautiful decor make this unique rental one of the most romantic cabins in Ohio. Although it’s very private, it’s still close to the highway and minutes to Logan or Nelsonville. Also, since it’s located right in the middle of Hocking Hills, there are tons of things to explore around. 

A cozy cabin is surrounded by approximately eight acres of woods, which you can observe snuggled in front of the wood-burning stove. No less importantly, there’s a lovely hot tub with views of the surrounding nature. In addition, there is a fire ring just off the deck so you can still enjoy the chilly evenings. 

Just a warning, though. People say the driveway is steep and a bit rutted. But, if you put the gear in low and gun it well, you should have no problem getting up there.

The Amish built this cozy one-bedroom cabin, but it’s brand new – only a couple of years old. You’ll find a comfy couch to sip your favorite beverage together, a queen-sized bed for the lovebirds, and more.

What makes this one of the most romantic cabins in Ohio is the historical value and peacefulness it offers. Couples who love to hike would love this cabin in the woods, with lots of trails and wildlife throughout. 

You’d have the whole place to yourself, but we’re optimistic you would spend more time outside than in because the backyard looks impressive with the outdoor fire pit, string lights, and other lovely decorations. The fantastic thing is it’s totally private since there are no visible neighbors at all. Instead, you’re surrounded by 80 acres of manicured woods with a few miles of trails.

Outside, you will find a wrap-around, private deck with a fire pit and access to trails that run throughout this lovely rental. 

There is a downside, though. Unfortunately, you would have a neighboring cabin nearby, so it’s not totally secluded.
