Our group spent a few days in Derby in ORC lodge. What a great time! River views and quiet are unmatched. The staff pointed us to some great local pubs and places to grab food and some brew where their neighbors eat. The snow melt caused the river to rise and we shifted our stay from a cabin near the...

A great Christmas weekend at the cabin! There was 8 people that stayed at the cabin! We had a lot of room, and lots to do! We enjoyed the view of the river! It was quiet and peaceful! A great place to get away from the busy work week! The place was clean and had everything we needed! My family... More

This year my family wanted to do something different to celebrate the holidays. We chose to getaway and wanted to stay in a cabin. We stayed in rock ridge lodge at Ohio River Cabins and it was phenomenal!! It was very clean, beds were very comfortable and it was perfect for our family getaway! The workers there were very friendly.... More

Weekend trip bust! I found the Ohio River Cabins online and contacted them about booking. I was assured by the person I was speaking with that the cabin was in good condition and a nice getaway for couples. I went ahead and booked finding out that there was an up charge for use of the hot tub. Knowing that a... More

I apologize we did not meet your expectations. Our cabins range anywhere from rustic to modern. The Hideaway is one of our rustic style cabins. Probably why Dianne offered to have you look at some other cabins. i believe my staff tried to satisfy your needs. I am personally going to inspect the cabin and address any electrical issues that...

When I called for reservations, I asked about the pictures/proximity of the cabin next door. I was told I was looking at old pics. Upon arriving, the Merrymaker was right there and hottubs were within 8 feet of each other with no privacy. The dock was shared, fortunately we didnt have a boat because the other cabin had 2 and...

I am sorry the proximity of this cabin was not explained clearly. I am working with my staff, especially on this cabin, to be sure to give accurate descriptions of all cabins. We have 8 cabins. 2 pairs (Merrymaker/Hideaway & Lodge/Daybreak) which are close to each other to provide adequate space for groups and reunions. The others are spaced apart... More

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a two night stay in the Hideaway cabin, which advertises as sleeping six. However, I would certainly not recommend it to any size group other than a couple. The bathroom could use a door of some sort, rather than a couple of beach towels strung up as a curtain. As far as privacy goes, The... More

There is a fine line between trying to provide great service and creepiness. The Maintenance man reference in this review and other reviews is not longer employed by Ohio River Cabins. Not because we felt like he was creepy or mischievous but because he retired. We pride ourselves in providing a private experience. That said, everyday we empty trash cans... More

My family and I stayed here last week and really enjoyed our stay. I booked the shady creek cabin after our original vacation plans fell through and it worked out great! For our family of 8 we were all comfortable for sleeping arrangements and space in general. The place was very well cleaned and well stocked with just about everything... More

We arrived at our cabin located at the end of a quiet road to find it very warm and inviting. The Kitchen/Great Room was more than enough room for our group. The full furnished kitchen and bedrooms were clean and ready. It was good not to have to bring lines and kitchen ware. The fire pit was stocked with wood... More

I love this place it is so peaceful, I really enjoyed the hot tub. It was very clean and the spa was relaxing and so sparkling. I am not the steadiest on my feet and the shower in the bathroom was very very helpful so I could sit down and relax. I thought the floor plan was very useful including... More
