Stayed in Pinecrest from July 1st-4th 2011. 2 adults, 2 adult teens (19 & 18) and 1 child, 6 years old. We came in after check-in hours and the cabin was ready to go for us. Lights were on and air-conditioning was running.
We had requested fire wood and that was on our front porch.
We were pleasantly surprised and pleased at how nice this cabin really was. After reading all the reviews from cabins in the Logan area, we were not quite sure what we were going to get. This was our first cabin rental. I have high standards for cleanliness; always bringing my Clorox wipes to wipe everything down, checking for bugs everywhere, etc. From the moment we walked in, we did not feel like we needed to do that. It was not perfect, however, it was adequate and I did not wonder all weekend if there were bugs coming out at night.
The cabin has an air-conditioning unit in the wall. A ceiling fan in the main cabin area and another ceiling fan up in the loft.
There is a bedroom off the main floor and the only complaint we had is that there was no ceiling fan in that room, so if you close the bedroom door, the cool air can't reach the bedroom. We had brought a fan with us so we just used that and we were fine. There is a heater in that bedroom for colder months. Bed linens are provided. There is a dresser in the room and a place to hang a few items up.
The bathroom is a standard size bathroom with a cabinet and a vanity, plenty of room to store essentials. Extra toilet paper below the cabinet too. Another nice thing was that there were plenty of towels for our family. Often, a hotel room is only stocked with 4 towels and then we always need to ask for extras right away. This cabin was stocked with 6 bath towels and plenty of wash cloths and 2 hand towels. I brought suction cup hooks for in the shower and a suction cup soap holder to accommodate our families’ needs.
The kitchen has a stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, toaster, can opener, mixer, pots and pans, dishes and utensils. I saw one measuring cup. Not knowing what items I would need to cook, I did bring quite a few items with me. I did forget my measuring cups and spoons though and so plan ahead to bring specific items you might need. It would have also been helpful had I brought my griddle, trying to cook pancakes in a small fry pan became quite the challenge. :-) The kitchen also had napkins, coffee filters, salt & pepper, hot pads and dish soap and an extra role of paper towel.
The loft has a double size bed, a dresser, and a place to hang some items. This room had a ceiling fan and really needed it. This room is open to the downstairs.
There is a phone in the cabin and satellite TV and a DVD player available.
There are two other cabins near this one, however, we never felt like our privacy was being invaded. The fire pit is in front of the cabin, just across the road and is surrounded by trees on three sides. There is a nice covered porch on the front and a covered and very private porch on the back of the cabin. The hot tub on the back porch is very nice and very clean and is private. We had never used a hot tub before and a lot of the reviews on trip adviser talked about dirty hot tubs. No worries about this one at all, this one was very clean and well taken care of. Bring your own towels for after the hot tub. There are two hooks out on the deck walls for your towels.
If you rent the Pinecrest, you will like it. This cabin is very close to the Hocking Hills State Park which we loved.
