“Peaceful cozy retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Family cabin for 4 adults and one kid (loved the bunk bed and gas fireplace) good meals in the lodge's dining room, close proximity to Oxford, salted sidewalks and plowed roads made for a nice Winter retreat. Look forward to returning when everything thaws out, to try some canooing and horseback riding.

We stayed at Hueston Woods Lodge and Conference Center in early January and were given a family cabin since the smaller cabin we reserved was not available.

The cabin was clean and well maintained, with the exception of the cold air coming in around the front door. The beds had extremely comfortable mattresses as compared to other resorts we've stayed at.

We had dinner at the Lodge and the food was surprisingly tasty. The only bad thing was the Muzak was circa 1973.

We'll go back again when we need a weekend away.

Room Tip: The couples cabins down by the lake have a romantic flare to them. Also be sure to visit the nature...

Thank you very much for the great review. Sitting near the fireplace in one of our cabins is a great place to enjoy a cold winter night. With 3600 acres and so much to see and do in the park, I hope you return to enjoy all the fun activities that are available!

Upsides: Very quiet and secluded with a great view of lake. We did get a nice "Buy 2 nights get 1 free" deal. Gas fireplace kept the room warm during a very cold winters weekend. Downsides: We had to go to Oxford to get air fresheners that barely dented the reeking smell of what we think was the well water. Fridge but no freezer...only enough very cheap dishes, cups and silverware for one meal. Had to hand wash dishes after each meal. Not would I would consider "well-appointed" kitchen. Had to wash all dishes before first use as they did not appear clean. Bed is only a double. Shower was so small you couldn't even turn around in it if you wanted to take a shower in the reeking well water. Description says 1 BR but this is really just an efficiency. Wifi was spotty as well having to re sign in every couple of hours. Keycard was a huge problem and very difficult to work with. Even had to go all the way back to the lodge to get a new one at one time. As parents of three kids, we really have the opportunity to "get away" only one weekend a year and despite trying to make the most of it, we couldn't even stay the third night as we were beginning to get severe headaches from the smell. As the title says, it was not all bad but generally disappointing for our one weekend away. For the same price or less next time we'll get a nice hotel in downtown Cincinnati.

Thank you for reaching out and letting us know about your stay in one of the cottages. We are on city water so I’m at a loss about the water situation, but I apologize for the problems you encountered and want you to know our Housekeeping and Maintenance teams are looking into the issues you mentioned. It sounds like one of our two-bedroom family cottages probably would have been a better fit for your family. Thanks again for letting us know.

Spent a winter weekend in one of the couples cabins: a great improvement since we stayed here 10 years ago. Newer furnishings and appliances, clean if basic. Wireless service a nice bonus. Ate at the lodge one evening: fair prices on a limited menu, friendly and prompt service, but brined pork chop was very dry...that's hard to do! Recommend you drive into Oxford for dinner.

We took our 11 year old twin grandkids to Hueston Woods for a long weekend. Their school grades of "A" got us a nice discount!! The food was wholesome and tasty even for picky eaters. The game room and pool are always hits and we had the added bonus of a great sledding hill and ice skating at Miami U. The staff were excellent and went out of their way to make our stay very nice -- getting game rules off the internet/ making milkshakes not on menu/ calling for info on ice skating etc . We'll do it again!!

My wife and I stayed at a lakeside couples cabin for New Years Eve. The cabin was very cozy with a view of Acton Lake and a comfortable bed, gas fireplace, bathroom, and kitchen with all the amenities that you would need.

The lodge has a big New Years Eve celebration that was very nice, and also free! We also enjoyed the buffet at the Trailblazer Dining Room at the lodge. The food was amazing and the place had great ambiance. We will definitely be back.

We spent 2 nights at the couples cabin. Cabin 37 is the last cabin at the end of the road with a beautiful view of the lake. The cabin was a little dated, but it had all the necessities: hot water, kitchen with plates, utensils, cups, etc., stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator (no freezer), & cozy gas fireplace. The fireplace itself is not very warm, but there is a very good (but loud) heater that makes up for it. There was cable, VCR/DVD player, and free wi-fi with speeds good enough for streaming videos. Cabins have no maid service, so use your towels wisely.

The lodge is about a mile away. The lodge is nice as well. There is a game room for kids, indoor pool, restaurant, & lounge. There is some exercise equipment, but the staff will tell you that it isn't the greatest. There are 4 pieces of equipment in the indoor pool area (stair master, Cybex machine, elliptical machine, and an exercise bike). The elliptical rollers & tracks are rusted and pretty much non-functional. The Cybex machine has some cosmetic rust on the handles, but other than that, it worked well.

It was a wonderful experience. I'm looking forward to returning in the summer, since there is so much to do here: paintball, archery, tennis, frisbee golf, hiking trails, nature center, and a golf course.

Thank you for visiting and reaching out to tell us about your visit. Cabin 37 is my personal favorite! I agree with you on the fitness equipment but want you to know we are finalizing plans for a new fitness center. Thanks again for your comments and hope you return soon to enjoy the many amenities the lodge and park have to offer!
