Location Details

'Walnut Lakes Cabin Retreat' rests on a private 100-acre property filled with hiking trails as well as numerous ponds and woods for you to explore, all within a short drive to the area's best attractions! You'll be only 18 miles from Hocking Hills State Park where you can visit the breathtaking rock formations, waterfalls, and gorges that are beautiful in all seasons. Be sure to stop by Ash Cave, Old Man's Cave, Whispering Cave and Cantwell Cliffs to see the best highlights!

Lake Hope State Park offers more than 2,900 acres in Zaleski State Forest with a lake for boating and fishing, while hunting is permitted in the forest surrounding the park. Lace up your hiking boots to explore the 7 hiking trails, while 8 mountain biking trails let you explore the woods from a different perspective. Additional hunting is permitted in Vinton Furnace State Forest, which also features a 19th-century iron furnace.

Make the 28-mile drive to visit Athens, which is home to Ohio University and numerous annual events such as the Halloween Block Party that both the town and college celebrate. The cabin is just 3 miles from McArthur, where you can easily pick up groceries, go to dinner and pick up a local souvenir.

  • Our family getaway


    We enjoyed our family stay at the cabin. Our children loved to fish, ride in the boats, have a fire, and use the hot tub. Also, we enjoyed having meals on the deck.

  • Beautiful property


    We enjoyed the property and the cabin! The hiking and paddle boat was very exciting for the kids. Unfortunately the weather was much colder than we expected so that was a bummer. We brought loads of movies and board games which saved our trip for our 5 and 8 year old. We would love to return when the weather is nicer.

  • Great spot to spend the weekend


    The hot tub and deck are great and we spent a lot of time here in those areas. The living room and kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were good.Only 25-30mins from the Hocking Hills hiking trails and about 35 from Athens.You do need 4wheel drive to make sure you won’t get stuck on the secluded and beauty drive back to the cabin and in the provided parking if the gravel is wet/slippery.Overall fantastic and will be back!

    Manager's Response:

    Owner's Response: "Hi Jordan, thank you for the great review. Just to clarify, the gravel road to the cabin is in excellent condition, and we maintain the road to keep it that way. However, if there is snow and/or ice like we had during your stay, it can get slippery. We state in the cabin description that 4WD or AWD is recommended during the winter months. Thanks for the valuable feedback and for staying with us. We're looking forward to having you back!"

  • The perfect getaway
