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!

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Even the beautiful photo's do not capture the magic of this getaway. So spacious, immaculate, beautiful surroundings indoors and outdoors. Like having your own private park to wander in. Our family of 12 enjoyed volleyball, water fights, the enormous fire pit, the hot tub, corn hole tournaments, love & laughter. Cathy & Steve are great hosts!

Your Own Personal State Park

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful lodge! Our family group of 17 stayed in the days between the holidays, and loved every moment of what became for us a most memorable Christmas. The lodge is managed by the owners and not a management company resulting in a more personal touch. Cathy and Steve are wonderful to work with and we felt welcomed the moment we arrived. The lodge is spacious and easily accommodated everyone in our group (the photos do not adequately portray the spaciousness). The kitchen is well equipped with a double oven, two refrigerators, several counter top type small appliances, large counter space, and extended cupboard space, all of which made it easy to plan and prepare meals for our large group. The hot tub was a big hit and used every day. The lodge is very clean and there was more than an adequate supply of towels plus many incidentals. We were fortunate with the exceptionally warm weather which allowed us to spend a lot of time outdoors. There is plenty of room to play in the grassy area around the lodge, and there are endless hiking trails throughout the surrounding fields and woods. In fact, it’s like having your own personal state park! We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Beautiful, All amentities provided-and then some.

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!
