Hocking Hills most unique couples or family cabin, the Boat House features a private dock and gazebo, with a luxurious private sauna on the lake. In the warmer months, you can explore the lake in the seasonal row boat, and in the cooler months, build a crackling fire in the wood burning fireplace! In additional to the outdoor amenities, the Boat House boasts a King-sized bed in the spacious bedroom, with a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room. Make memories that will last a lifetime at the Boat House!
Of all our luxury cabins, The Boat House offers the most rustic experience having originally been a pole barn that was converted for use as a guest house for the Lake House. Being such, the proximity between the Boat House and Lake House are closer together than any of our other cabins on property and you may be subject to noise from the guests staying at the Lake House. If absolute privacy is of the upmost concern, we suggest you look at Ravine’s Edge, The Observatory or Oak Ridge.
Having said that, The Boat House still remains one of our most popular accommodations. Add-ons upon add-ons make this a one-of-a-kind space. Lots of knotty pine, a copper sink in the large bathroom, railroad ties used for the fireplace mantle….and that just scratches the surface!
Private outdoor space includes a fire pit (wood is available for sale), 2-person hammock and private dock with bar, sunbathing and dining area.

The Boat house is the only cabin that was constructed entirely from wood milled on our property. Initially built as a storage barn, the Boat House has had many updates over the years and is now one of our most popular accommodations!
The Boat House had been used as a Guest House when the Lake House was a private home. Separate Gazebos on the lake insure privacy while dining or conversing on the water. Separation is maintained both physically and visually through discrete plantings and separate parking. Every effort has been made to address the privacy and comfort of our guests.
You will fall in love with our stunning bathroom with radiant floor heating. The warmth to the touch when you get in from the hot tub or out of the shower is to die for.
