Frequently Asked Questions
Why should you choose Pleasant Valley Cabins?
We offer you a secluded cabin, atop a hill, in a wooded setting, well off the county road.
Our cabins have DirectTV so your rainy days won't be spent watching DVDs or battling the poor, if any, reception afforded the Hocking Hills landscape. There's a TV in the loft for video games or DVDs.
We really are right in the middle of everything. We're 5 -15 minutes from every attraction. You can be closer to one
of the parks, but you'll be farther from shopping and much farther from the other parks.
We think a log cabin provides the ambience you won't find in some other cabins and cottages. There's not a piece of drywall in the entire cabin!
Our cabins are
competitively priced, & owner cleaned and maintained. When comparing rates & options, don't forget to ask: How secluded is the cabin?
What is the location to all attractions? Tax rate? Fire ring allowed? Hot tub size? Firewood?
Please call us at 888-762-8183 to answer any questions you might have.
We hope that once you arrive at Pleasant Valley Cabins, you'll know you've made the right selection and we'll do everything we can to assure you of that. We truly appreciate the opportunity to make this your "Getaway Destination" for a long time to come.

How secluded are the cabins? How close are the cabins to each other?
Our cabins are quite secluded, 1/4 mile off a county road. You'll surely be visited by a variety of wildlife. When the leaves are on, you can't see one cabin from the other. There is an obstructed view during the other seasons. If guests from both cabins are sitting on the deck, you won't be looking at the other nor will you be able to talk back and forth. They are within walking distance of each other which makes for a great multi-family vacation spot.
During the winter months, 4 wheel drive could be a "must have" after a big snowfall. We'll be happy to transport you to & from your cabin if you don't have 4 wheel drive.

What do we need to bring?
Personal toiletries like soap & shampoo. We supply all bed, bath & kitchen linens. We also provide an initial supply of paper towels and toilet tissue. You'll want to bring beach towels for hot tub use.
Although the water is conditioned, it is well water and you may want to bring drinking water.
We have FREE firewood for the fire rings. Due to the Emerald Ash Borer, we cannot allow you to bring in firewood from outside this area. You'll need newspaper or a firestarter log for the outside fire. The inside fireplaces are gas.
Flashlights are good to have on hand.
