Hints of Ohio
We're proud of our location in one of the most beautiful and diverse states. You can find subtle touches of our Ohio roots throughout the lodge in a variety of ways. From the paint scheme to featuring natural elements found onsite, we pay homage to the setting we're in and work to preserve it for future generations.
Pieces of Ohio are found throughout the property. How many can you spot on your trip to Hocking Hills State Park?
- Color: Guest room color schemes reflect subtle shades of birds native to the region. A special pattern and coating were designed for the large glass panels in the grand middle space and pool area to protect birds from colliding with them.
- State Wildflower: Ohio’s official wildflower (found in all 88 counties), the white trillium, can be found etched into fireplaces.
- Scenery: Headboards depict the signature treeline surrounding our beautiful property.
- Natural Resources: An aggregate of rocks and minerals from the Ohio river is placed in the concrete flooring throughout the lodge.
- Fountain: Sandstone sourced on-site was incorporated into the lobby fountain, which represents Hocking Hills State Park’s coveted water features and sprawling woodland.
- Native Trees: Ohio hardwoods, eastern hemlock, red oak, white oak, hard maple, black cherry, black walnut, and ash from Ohio state parks comprise the live edge screen around the bar.
- Clear Sky Conservation: Hocking Hills is one of the few places left in Ohio where the night sky can be seen clearly. To preserve starry views, the lodge’s exterior lighting was designed to limit uplighting and light pollution.
Honoring the Legacy
Throughout the lodge, you'll find elements that nod to our unique location and history in Hocking Hills.
- Talented creatives, with special ties to Ohio, crafted artwork that pays homage to lodge surroundings. This includes "Maple Leaves" and "Hickory Leaves" carvings by Jonathan Cox, Guestroom pieces by Justin Harris, “Tranquility” sculpture by Kevin Lyles, and hallway photography by Dusty Scott
- The original Hocking Hills Lodge opened in 1970 and fell to fire in 2016. Today the original flagpole, a memorial stone, and a plaque commemorate the 1970 lodge.
- Pieces of retaining wall from the preexisting lodge, along with other significant geological and historical stones, are preserved in the structure of our fireplaces.
