Planning the Perfect Secluded Vacation

By October 28, 2019 No Comments

When a crowded beach or bustling metropolitan vacation seems like sensory overload, then it’s time to try a secluded escape. The cabins at Cherry Ridge Retreat offer just that- a hidden getaway spot. Nestled in the privacy of 140 acres, each cabin boasts its own private serenity. And, with all the amenities of the cabins and the local attractions of Hocking Hills, there is no shortage of ways to check out of the daily grind and tune into your self-care. We’ve even created an itinerary to serve as inspiration for your next trip.

Easy Like Vacation Morning

Waking up after a relaxing sleep in a luxury cabin, there is no doubt that you will be greeted by the sounds of nature waking with you. Each kitchen is fully equipped for whipping up an omelet or frying some bacon, and the gracious porches and outdoor living areas are perfect for enjoying your coffee as you take in the scenery. A morning hike is always a great option too, as the property boasts miles of meticulously maintained private trails. Stroll over to one of the three beautiful ponds or to the larger lake for breathtaking views and catch-and-release fishing at your leisure.

A Luxurious In-Cabin Treat

If you are looking for a romantic way to unwind with your partner, book an in-cabin massage for two during your getaway. There is no need to leave the property for a spa-like experience, and we can’t think of a better way to pamper your partner than a mid-day massage treat.

Daytime Exploration

Keep that intimate connection going with a hand-in-hand stroll at one of the many nature reserves and parks. Hike your way into the recesses of Ash Cave, or enjoy a romantic picnic for two at Old Man’s Cave. If you are interested in the local art scene, we recommend checking out some of the galleries and shops to find one-of-a-kind gifts and mementos. 

Dinner & Ambience 

When bellies start to grumble and dinner rolls around, why not cozy up in one of the many wineries or restaurants that Hocking Hills has to offer? Lake Hope Lodge, Rhapsody, and the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls all feature delicious menus and a romantic atmosphere.

Additionally, why not end your evening by sipping a glass of local wine and listening to live music at Hocking Hills Winery? They feature a wide array of locally crafted wines and even small plates and appetizers, should you be in need of a late-night snack.

Secluded Slumber

As the sun sets on your relaxing day, head on back to your quiet, tucked away cabin for a good night’s rest. Enjoy the sounds of your natural nighttime neighbors as you drift off to sleep in a large, pillow-soft bed. With a full day behind you and everything you could need at your fingertips, we know that you will find your troubles melting away and that rest will come easy.
