Ohio is the gateway to the Midwest United States and, as such, offers quite a lot to do for those visiting for the first time. While Ohio provides plentiful wide open spaces and rural spots to explore, the state also is home to a variety of big cities that give you all the arts, culture, sports and more a traveler could desire. Ohio’s state parks and natural landscapes are not-to-be-missed, though.
Ohio’s rural areas are very easily accessible from any of its three major cities. You can quickly drive from downtown Columbus, Cincinnati or Cleveland and, within minutes, find yourself in the great outdoors. For this reason, many travelers looking to explore both Ohio’s urban and natural settings opt to book a cabin rental versus a hotel room. Some of the most popular areas to stay in a cabin in Ohio include Lake Erie, Lancaster, Cincinnati and Hocking Hills.
Cabin rentals are often more budget-friendly for family or group travelers. If a cabin rental in Ohio sounds like a good option for your next trip, check out these three cabin rental providers.
HomeAway offers hundreds of different cabins all across Ohio, no matter where it is you’re looking to stay. There are tons of options to choose from and HomeAway’s intuitive search features make it easy to find the best option for you. Whether you want to stay in a cabin near the city, or something more remote, you can find it. For example, you might choose to stay in one of the 150-plus cabins near Cincinnati. You can find a luxury log cabin with a hot tub and great views just 15 miles away from the Cincinnati city center for $450 per night. For cabins near Columbus or Cleveland, you’ll have to go a little further out, but you can find plenteous, affordable cabins just a short drive from Columbus in Lancaster (near Ohio’s Amish Country) or a short jaunt from Cleveland, on the shores of Lake Erie.
Getaway Cabins is a locally-owned cabin rental provider in Ohio, with business focused around Ohio’s popular cabin getaway spot, Hocking Hills. Getaway Cabins offers dozens of cabins for both couples and groups. The site allows you to explore each cabin individually and learn more about what each offers and all amenities. A separate feature allows you to search available cabins for specific dates. Cabins come with limited amenities overall, and guests are asked to bring all of their own toiletries and food. The only items provided in each unit are towels, linens, cookware, utensils, dish soap and paper products.
VRBO has hundreds of cabin rentals across the state of Ohio, much like HomeAway, with some of the most popular spots for cabin rentals being Hocking Hills State Park, Logan, Port Clinton, Rockbridge and Sandusky. Most cabins are between $100 and $200 per night if you’re looking to book a few nights in the summer, when cabin prices are highest. Most cabins listed come with desirable amenities, including hot tubs, fireplaces, great views and waterfront locations. Additionally, VRBO’s new cancellation policy will give you peace of mind when booking, with cancellations allowed up to 14 days before your arrival.
