About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the manager
Had a beautiful family vacation at Steve and Cathy's lodge! Our family now numbers about 20, so it's hard to find a place to all be together with enough room to not all be together! We loved the wraparound porch, and all the neat spots for enjoying quiet morning coffee, as well as room for meeting in comfort and making connections all together. Steve and Cathy were right there to meet our every need, and we even had them over to eat dessert with us! Such a scenic spot to take our annual family pictures, too. Adults could go out to see the nearby sites whenever, but one of our grandchildren submitted the best review. When asked if she wanted to go see such and such, she replied she just wanted to stay here! We liked the stunning scenery in the state park, but it was good to always come "home" to this lovely place.
Five stars for this one! Thanks!

Great place to stay. a true home away from home.... My colleagues and I stayed at Mesa Vista Lodge for 2 nights. The place is beautiful and the pictures on the internet do not do it justice. The lodge was spotless and had everything imaginable, no need to over-pack. The layout is perfect for a smaller group of 8-10 or a larger family/friends group of 20. The owners, Cathy and Steve were very accommodating and friendly. We did have a mishap and accidentally tore the hot tub cover. The fees charged were very fair, reasonable and clearly documented. I am planning another corporate group outing soon in the Hocking Hills area as well as a family/friends weekend and hope to secure the dates at Mesa Vista
LOVED Mesa Vista Lodge!
We had a group of 7 women that have been friends for a very long time spend the weekend at Mesa Vista Lodge. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more than we did there.
The lodge is beautiful, clean, well taken care of and fully equipped with everything you may need. The owners are great and are sure to see that everything is perfect for you. They have really paid attention to detail and gone the extra mile to make your vacation the best it can be.
The hot tub is amazing...especially on a snowy evening.
I would not hesitate to go visit Mesa Vista again. It would be wonderful for a large family get together but also serves well for a Girl's Weekend Getaway.
Spring Break with family & friends
Mesa Vista Lodge is truly a gem! We came during Spring Break 2013 (my husband and several of our close friends are teachers). The group was 8 adults and 5 children (ages 5 and under). The lodge was perfect for all of us. The older kids loved the loft spaces. It gave them a "private" place to play school and house while the parents could still keep an eye on them. The youngest (18 months) had plenty of room to run around for hours on end. He also loved Ozlo, the giant stuffed orangutan :) There is so much room in the lodge. It was great to be able to put the kids to bed and still be able to hang out with all of the adults without worrying about the kids waking up. The owners really took everything into consideration. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the pots, pans, cooking utensils you could need. Even a roaster and crock pot. It really made meal time a cinch! There is so much to do right at the lodge. A great fire pit out back, tons of trails to hike around the property, lots of indoor and outdoor games, not to mention the heavenly hot tub for the adults. We even had a "pool" party for the little kiddos in the huge bath tub in the master suite.
It's also in a great location. Just a short drive to any of the local Hocking Hills hiking trails, waterfalls, caves. Also fairly close to grocery stores for the random things that we forgot to pack. The guys also found a great disc golf course at the college campus a few towns over. One day, we had massages right in the lodge. So relaxing!!!
It's also great to have the owners right there on the property. We were assured that if we ever had an issue, we could easily reach them. Cathy stopped by daily to make sure everything was good. She even offered to pick stuff up at the grocery store when she was heading there. What hotel would ever do that for you??? :)
We always prefer to rent a home/condo while on vacation instead of staying in hotels. The Mesa Vista Lodge was, by far, one of the best we have seen. Do not hesitate to stay here!
My 50th birthday family gathering
Steve and Cathy,
The only way I know how to describe this "home away from home" is WOW!!
My husband and family decided to give me a wonderful family weekend for my 50th birthday in Feb. 2010. All of my children and their "significant" others made the trip in a horrific snow storm. The surprise at the end of the trip was a beautiful cabin with so much warmth and space that soon the trip horrors melted away as they all huddled around the enormous fireplace.
When we arrived and walked through the front door and saw what awaited us, we were all in awe. Perfect in every way, with a super location and abounding amenities. The hot tub of course was at the top of the list for my 2 nephews. This well-maintained, home is a must see, must stay, property.
Upon arrival we met our gracious hosts: Steve and Cathy and still to this day, maintain a friendship. These two are such a giving and loving people. Steve told us that the next day there would be sleds waiting for us on the porch so that we all could enjoy the snowy day. All but myself (due to a spinal surgery), enjoyed the time of their lives sledding down the hill in the back of the home. Even my 73 year old mommy was filmed sledding down the hill, on her own, that day. A true memory all of us will treasure. She even made it back up the hill!
Every detail was considered with the traveler in mind. Every bedroom had it's own rustic theme and every window you looked out of had a spectacular view! Just ask my 93 year old grandma who would every day walk from one window to the next taking in every site.
With 2 fireplaces, one up and one downstairs, huge kitchen with every utensil you could think of, huge table for all of the family to sit at, comfortable furniture, beautiful bedrooms, sitting areas, front porch, hot tub and space to roam, walk and hike, who could ask for more. This cabin is an oasis you cannot miss! One stay and you will be hooked, I assure you.
I cannot go without telling you about the start of my "Hockinite" family. When we got to Mesa Vista Lodge and got settled in, Cathy arrived with a basket filled with the cutest creations I have ever seen! Homemade, big eyed, big bellied, cute as can be, Hockinites! Any color you want, Cathy can make for you. I left with 2 for myself, "Kave" and "Valli". This past Christmas we have a new Hockinite family member; Kave and Valli's son Sprig. Ask Cathy about these handmade nature fun creatures.
Enjoy as a family as we did!
Great Place To Stay!!
This place is everything, plus more than what it says to be. The kitchen is very well supplied with all your cooking and baking needs. Our large family of 16 were all very satisfied with our stay.
What a awesome, CLEAN house. We came prepared to do some cleaning, but rather were amazed at the extra clean place! Thanks Cathy for taking such good care of your property.
What can I say, it was just a fantastic place for our family of 18 to get together to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and just celebrating our family being together. Everything was top notch and the grandchildren never ask for things to do from 5yrs to 23yrs. It was wonderful and we will never forget it. We were well provided for and the owners were at our beckon call. We thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful memory. Joann-Madison, Oh.
