What Past Guests Are Saying
A Perfect Time at Pinewood Cabin
Though we usually go to Maine, my husband searched for a dog friendly cabin in Hocking Hills, Ohio this year for our anniversary holiday. Blessedly he found Marsh Hollow! We have rented cabins before that we ended up leaving early because they were not as they were represented. Marsh Hollow's Pinewood Cabin was better than we hoped for; so much so that we extended are stay there! The cabin was extremely clean, the kitchen was well equipped, the deck was delightful, soaking in the hot tub was wonderful, watching the hummingbirds was a thrill, and the entire experience was the quiet solitude we were looking for in a time away. We'll be back!!!
Clean and comfortable cabin
This clean and comfortable pet friendly cabin had everything we needed. We took advantage of the nice large deck and ate supper and breakfast out on it. Also enjoyed the hot tub.
Great place to relax
This is a great place to come and relax but still close to Hocking Hills trails. Has all the amenities that you would need. Great place for a family or a couples. Owners are so nice and easy to work with. Can't wait to visit again!
We had a great stay at Marsh Hollow. We fell in love with the cabin and especially the hot tub! It was still kinda cold during our stay, but we visited a couple trails close by on Saturday afternoon. Mary and Dave's dogs were also over for our stay and we just fell in love with them. It was very hard not to let them in! Thanks for sharing your amazing cabin with us busy city folks, it gave us much needed time off! We'll definitely be back!

If your looking for a peaceful retreat not to far off the beaten track. This is the place to stay. Easy access to highways but remote enough on 10 acres to be very peaceful. Close to several hikes, you can even take a hike around the property. Everything you need here and a wonderful hot tub to use after hiking all day. I have to say never new this hilly region was in Ohio.
A great weekend getaway
Great service the owners are very nice people an easy to talk to.The cabin was fantastic they had light music playing very clean easy check in. a lot of room for a me my wife and 2 dogs very warm and cozy the deck off the living room was big and porch was covered so rain,snow did not matter and the hot tub was real nice and warm alot of flat yard for games dogs kids camp fires across from the cabin are the trails i loved that for me and the dogs alot of privacy and secluded but it was close to hockinghills state park and restaurants. grocery stores pizza. my favorite part about everything is the property cabin and location is very good for every type of person whether you like going for a walks ,hiking or just fun with your dogs or kids it was the best time i have had in years.
Great secluded location and great cabin!
Beatiful location and cabin within minutes of Hocking Hills main attractions, Old Man's Cave, Cedar Falls etc. We had a great time and it was great to see the area covered in snow. Mary Marsh was great and very accomodating. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family.
Could not have asked for any thing more.
If you're debating whether or not to book this cabin, do it! It is truly an amazing location. Unlike many of the cabins in Hocking Hills, this is not in a group of cabins. It is as private as it gets. The cabin is perfect, well built, clean and myself, my girlfriend and our puppy felt at home immediately. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer!
Peaceful, Pet Friendly Vacation!
This place was incredibly clean, especially for being pet friendly! Also, the deck was wonderful for sitting out and looking over the woods - complete with gates to keep the dogs on the deck. If our dogs were trained off-leash, it would have been even better but it was still wonderful having them on-leash. With all of the nearby hiking trails that were not only beautiful, but also dog-friendly - it was an awesome trip for us and our dogs. They were exhausted every day! Even the local restaurants were accommodating to our dogs and wonderful!
Great place to stay
I have stayed in hocking hills before in another cabin. Marsh Hallow is an excellent place to stay. It's nice to find a cabin that we can take our dogs to, but not pay almost a full night stay in pet fees! We found Marsh Hollow to be just what we were looking for. We definately plan on returning. Thank you Mary and Dave.
Price value perfection.
Marsh Hollow is a lovely place to spend a few days away from...whatever. Location is good, getting to all the Hocking Hills hiking is easy, as is Laurelville (sp?). Great when you have as much fun as your dog. The trail on property is also not to be missed.
Great little place
My wife and I had an excellent time spending the first couple days of the New Year at the Marsh's cabin. There wasn't any negative surprises, everything was the way they said it was on their website. Had a nice little hike around their property in the snow.
Only had one little hickup trying to get up the hill because of the ice and snow, but we threw some weight in the trunk and had no problem after that.
We hope to comeback someday with a dog and maybe get a chance to meet the Marsh's and their animals.
We also appreciated the books, dvds, and games they had available for us to use.
Response from Mary Marsh - 01/09/2013
Thanks for the great review. We know that drive can be a challenge, because it's all uphill. When you visit again, please feel free to call on us for help getting out - but it seems like you met the challenge. Welcome to our life in the Hocking Hills!
Tony and Robin
a little piece of heaven
Love the privacy. Very clean. The hot tub was great. Can't wait to go back.
serenity + adorable +awesome
not only is mary awesome, but the cabin and area surrounding it are as well. close enough to go frolick in hocking hills and then come back and kick it in the cabin and/or hot tub. my dog was stoked the whole time. especially about the mini electric wood stove which he claimed front row seats to immediately. Everyone should experience! and mary's horses were very cute too.
THANKS MARSH HOLLOW
we loved our stay quite quant cozy just how we like it. also very close to all attractions plus wal mart. see ya soon joe denice and murphy
We stayed at Marsh Hollow and were very happy with the location and accommodations. The cabin was clean and quaint. Everything was just lovely. We would stay here again.
Beautiful, quiet, and clean. Wish we could have spent more time at the cabin, but it was wonderful when we were there. Hot tub was nice!
Marsh Hollow Get away in Hocking hills
Great place to relax and rest with your dogs and family. My Golden girls had a great time and so did we.
short but nice
We was unable to stay all of are vacation because of some last min family problems. Mary worked with use so we was able to get away for some of our vacation.
This rental at Marsh Hollow,,,is the most somber place ,I think, in Ohio.Quite and away from all the hustle and bustle,,nothing but relaxation for you and your family,and pets.
Relaxed Anniversary Traveler
Very nice vaca with our canine son in celebration of our anniver
We received great service, really liked the cabin, it was on a beautiful property that we were able to hike. Also, the cabin was clean, with a nice relaxing hot tub. The cabin owners were very nice and accomodating. The best part was that we were able to take the canine member of our family! We very much enjoyed our stay. The cabin is near hiking areas of rock house and others. However, it is somewhat secluded (which we loved) and a little drive to Logan. This is a great cabin for anyone who loves the outdoors and wants to enjoy a nice getaway! :)
This was our second amazing stay at the Marsh cabin...wonderful
The service is always amazing and Mary is so nice and sweet. Everything always looks so nice and cozy, inside and out. The cabin is always clean and refreshing. They take pride in keeping things in good working order and updated as well. The hot tub is awesome, but the huge deck it is on is a really nice touch. Half of the deck is covered very nicely, so if it rains or snows, you can still hang out there. The cabin is in a great location and it's on "tons" of property with its own trails. There are so many other parks and attractions not too far from the cabin as well. This is one awesome getaway worth getting away too...we'll be back!
Relaxing weekend getaway
Lovely experience! I arrived to a spotless and charming cabin with classical music softly playing on the sat. Tv.
Lovely location to get 'away from it all' with the perks of a hot tub, wonderful kitchen, gas grill and more.
I was happy my girlfriend and i were able to bring our dogs, and they had plenty of room to explore and run around. Mary was even sweet enough to explain how to light the grill! Would love to return.
Marsh Hollow is the best!
We found Marsh Hollow to be a perfect fit for us. We were traveling with 2 dogs and there was more than ample room to walk them and explore the property. The cabin was very comfortable, and the bird feeder outside the main window kept us entertained when there. Mary was very helpful in arranging our stay and providing us information. We'd stay there again anytime!
Beautiful and relaxing
The cabin is lovely and everything is provided. The property is completely secluded and beautiful for walking the dogs. Hocking Hills is very close, but removed enough that the holiday traffic to the park does not come near the cabin. Wonderful place, we've visited several times and will continue to come. The owners of the cabin are also very accomodating and lovely people.

Fantasic Relaxing Weekend
We loved Marsh Hollow! The cabin was great! It was clean, has a well equiped kitchen, comfortable bed, and a great back porch! We brought our dog, Jazz and she played all weekend with the other dogs, whom we fell in love with! We would definitely recommend it to a friend and will probably be back!
Denise & Kevin
A peaceful getaway
This was the first trip for my husband & I to the cabin, along with our senior dog. We enjoyed that the cabin was neat and cozy. We didn't have the best weather during our visit, but we had no problem staying in and relaxing. We really enjoyed the hiking trail on the property with our dog. We will definitely be coming back to stay some other time.
Great Getaway Spot!
This was our second visit to Marsh Hollow. It is a very cute and cozy little cottage in a private area. We loved walking around outside. Our dog especially loved romping through the woods. Of course it was nice to end each day in the hottub!!! The cabin is perfect for a quick weekend trip and is close, but not to close, to all the Hocking Hills activities. We will be back next year!
a perfect romantic getaway
This cabin is private, very comfortable and has everything we needed to make our stay extremely relaxing. When a small problem arose the owner was quick to respond in a discreet, professional and effective manner.
For the price,seclusion,and comfort, there is no better value in Hocking Hills.The pet-friendly factor makes it even better. Are there newer and bigger cabins for rent in Hocking Hills? Sure, but be prepared to pay big $$$
Ideal and serene, clean and oh so comfortable!
This was our second stay at Marsh Hollow in three years. Mary and Dave's cabin is in an ideal, private setting.We are both music teachers and love the welcome we get when we arrive to soft classy music. The cabin is always clean and warm. The views from the property are as ideal as one can get. It is so quiet. The bed is so comfortable and there is every basic you would need in the kitchen and bathroom.
If you love watching birds, the front window overlooks birdfeeders and we saw three types of woodpeckers, nuthatches, Bluejays, chickadees...sitting in the rocker and watching the birds was heavenly.
In the evening, we relaxed in the hot tub while a family of deer came down onto the hollow to graze within 100 feet. Seeing deer is very common here-one welcomed us as we arrived in the drive.
Thank you, Mary and Dave for sharing your cabin. When we couldn't book a weekend in your cabin, we have tried two other places, and none of them after hours of researching what was available compared remotely to Marsh Hollow.
Dayton, Ohio, United States
I believe we have found our favorite cabin
We have stayed in six others cabins in the Hocking Hills area and Marsh Hollow's Pinewood Cabin was wonderful. Great location and the property is beautiful. The cabin had everything you could want or need and we loved the deck with the hot tub, rocking chairs and table with chairs along with the outside speakers from the CD/DVD player. Enjoyed sitting on the deck and loved having a fire in the pit with picnic table close by. Definitely will be back next year (if I can wait that long).
Far exceeds all expectations.
Marsh Hollow cabin exceeded all of our expections for a cabin rental. Upon entering, we were greeted with a personal note from the property owners and a sweet cookie treat. The cabin is very clean and had lots of room for two adults and their two dogs. From the well-appointed kitchen, large bedroom, to the luxurious-for-a-cabin bath, we felt very comfortable at Pinewood cabin. The huge covered patio/deck with the hot tub was also an unexpected surprise. We will definitely return to take more advantage of the 14 acres of beautiful, secluded nature.
A wonderful clean cabin for a romantic getaway...great value!
Everything we needed to enjoy our stay was provided. It was a great location with beautiful surroundings. Would definitely return there.
A fun get-away
This was my third time to stay at Marsh Hollow and all visits have been terrific. Mary and Dave provide a very pretty cabin with many amenities in the midst of a beautiful area of Ohio. You can hike throughout the area and go back to the cabin to relax in the hot tub, catch a game on TV, watch birds, cook out on the fire or in the full kitchen. On this trip, our family took a stained glass workshop taught by audrey at the Scenic Way gift shop not far from the cabin and ash Cave. My 11-yr. old son enjoyed the class as much as my husband and I did. We recommend this class to others looking for something different to do while in the area.
Very cozy and warm. Close to all the trails. Worked perfect for my family of four. Would definitely go back.
Mt. Gilead, Ohio
Couldn't have had a more perfect choice in a cabin to get away from everyday stress! Simply Perfect! Thank you Mary & Dave! Your cabin was simply relaxing and cozy! We will be back!
Great Weekend Getaway
The cabin was wonderful and Mary was really helpful. We had a great time. We are planning on returning soon.
Kateums & Crash
The Perfect Getaway
Had a wonderful time at the cabin and all the sites. The cabin was in a perfect location, everything was close enough that it only took about 15 min. to get to most of the attractions but you weren't surounded by people. Best sleep we've had all year! Haha. The cabin gave that perfect cozy feel, very little noise, and the bed was so comfy. We also had perfect weather for the hottub and sitting on the deck at night. Best vacation for the two of us so far and we can't wait to come back. :) Have also started recomending to family and friends.
Hope to be back soon.
Lewis Center, Ohio
So private...and we didn't miss a thing
The cabin was extremely clean and very functional. We felt far enough away from society while at the cabin but still close enough to the state parks. Our dog had a great time exploring the property, but he didn't seem to notice that other dogs had stayed in the cabin. We thought there might be a "dog" smell, being dog friendly, but not at all. The deck was great to hang out on, so we cooked most meals out there on the grill, sat in the rockers and just watch the birds, and did a jigsaw puzzle on the table out there. Even when it rained, the covered area was big enough to keep us dry. We can't wait to come back.
It was the perfect getaway. Little to no traffic, plenty of amenities,privacy, all of nature to contemplate, and best of all--our cell phones did not work. Our dog felt right at home, too. Thanks!
We had a wonderful time at Marsh Hollow!! Three best friends with their doggies...what a wonderful time...the cabin is comfortable and the location is perfect to get away from everything!! Plenty of room for the dogs to run and trails to explore...
Great place to bring the dogs
Cabin was great, the dogs loved it. Very private atmosphere, the hot tub was a nice addition. Just wish it was a little closer to the trails.
We absolutely loved Marsh Hollow and can't wait to return. We have already told out friends about this cabin. It was so comfortable and nice. We loved the hot tub, deck, and grounds. We only wished we could have stayed another couple of days!!

Just what we needed.
Marsh Hollow was the perfect place for us to stay to help lifes stresses just melt away. It was eveything we expected, private, clean, and peaceful. Our dog had a blast as well as there was plenty of space for her to roam. Definately plan on returning in 2012.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay. The place is in a great secluded location and the grounds are beautiful. I love the dogs greeting us when we arrived and when we left the following morning before heading out on our adventures. The place was very well kept up. I loved that there were lots of things to do such as hiking on the trail, games, music and the hot tub. I definitely had a wonderful time and the owners were very friendly.
Relaxation sumpreme! what a wonderful place to unwind from lifes chaos! The utter peacefulness was poetry in itself...the deck with the stereo system out side was the ultimate, dancing under the stars with my husband, relaxing in the hot tub, the quietess and privacy were unsurpassed...hocking hills hikes are great but we stayed in most of the time. the cabin is so nice and comfortable, we didnt want to go out..we didnt want to come back to real life...

Home away from Home.
The cabin was clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was available. I like that there are gates on the porch so our dog Louie could relax outside with us.
Laura, Charles, and Frank
My husband and our dog returned after coming in 2009. We again experienced a relaxing adventure (lots of hiking and sight-seeing at the local parks). The sights and sounds of the local birds, and our nightly visit from a raccoon) made the stay even more enjoyable and interesting. We plan to return in the fall season, so as to enjoy the surroundings with a different color scheme.
Vernon & Frances - the newlyweds
Peaceful and relaxing
We loved Marsh Hollow. It is a beautiful pet friendly environment with lots of hiking on the property and close by. Reasonably priced a perfectly private, we will be staying at this cabin on our next visit to hocking hills for sure.
I am coming back!
The cabin was absolutely beautiful. My boyfriend and I brought both of our dogs and had a joyous, relaxing stay. Everything we needed was provided. The dogs wanted to stay forever! We hiked in the afternoon and then let the dogs run in the acres of land behind the cabin. We used the grill provided on the spacious porch to grill burgers and eat out while watching the sun go down. We absolutely loved the hot tub! I think we used it 5 times in the short two days we stayed. I wish I lived here year round. I am definitely coming back and recommend this cabin to anyone that wants a relaxing weekend away from the city and hustle and bustle of life. The Marsh's were so very kind to us, too. If we had any questions or problems, they were a phone call away...also just a short walk to their property located right beside the cabin. Thank you for giving my boyfriend and me the Spring Break we desperately needed!
We had such a great time! This is the perfect cabin if you have kids and dogs. You can keep an eye on the kids and dogs by the creek while grilling out. It gave our kids a chance to explore (and our dog) while we were relaxing and feeling safe and secure. Also has a private hiking trail for really good exercise and a hot tub to soak in after. One last thing, We gave the kids the bedroom, so my husband and I slept on the futon. And it was so comfortable! We will definetly be back!
The perfect place for a family to enjoy nature
We found Marsh Hollow online and this cabin fit everything we were looking for and the price couldn't be beat. The cabin is beautiful inside and out and offered everything we could need for our stay. The hot tub is a nice treat early on a nippy morning or to relax after a hike on the trails. Our kids enjoyed the wildlife- birds to watch out the back window, deer in the field and bald eagles soaring over head. Roasting marshmallows over the fire in the evening as the sky became a million sparkles. The owner's dogs are very friendly and our Lab had fun running with her "new friends". The location is nice and quiet but close to anything you would want to do in the Hocking Hills. As a family we enjoy geo-caching and letterbox adventures and there were plenty to search for in the area. We had a wonderful time!
Relaxing weekend in Hocking Hills
What a wonderful place to stay. Perfect for the two of us and our two dogs. The cabin was super clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. Will try to stay here again on our next trip to HH.

Lovely Log Cabin Get-away
My husband and I chose to stay at Marsh Hollow while the weather was still cold in March. We found plenty of activities to do in the area and spent time relaxing in and around the cabin. Our small dog thoroughly enjoyed romping around the property and taking hikes with us. We are looking forward to returning during warmer weather to further explore the Hocking Hills area.
This was our second stay at Marsh Hollow and it was wonderful. The dogs love this place and had just as much fun as we did. We stayed last year for two days and this year we did 3 days. Took lots of photos, the weather was beautiful! Saw the eagles two or three times! We had a great time and cannot wait to go back! Love the Hocking Hills and Marsh Hollow :)
Tipp City, OH
Always a great stay!
This is our third trip to Marsh Hollow and we are never disappointed. Mary Marsh is so nice and the cabin is always exceptionally clean. We know we can always count on a wonderful stay!
Close to everything but far enough away to relax
Harsh Hollow is an excellent choice for your visit to Hocking Hills. It is located right in the mist of all the attractions but nestled on 14 acres of private land for lots of relaxation. The large yard has lots of run for your pets to run which will ensure they are wore out also at the end of the day.
a secluded get away
This is the second time since Feb. 2009 at Marsh Hollow.If you need a wonderful place to just get away, I mean phones,people and the every day drag this is the place. All you need is foof and beverages. Dave and Mary have thought of everything from utensils to wonderful robes to wear.The setting is secluded and quiet, make your own camp fire if you want they even supply the logs. Don't get me wrong there are places to go and things to do if you want to. But for my wife and myself we just hung out at the cabin. No phones no kids it is great.So if you are looking for a private spot don't pass this one up. A definate 5 star.
Enjoyable and relaxing at the same time
We wanted to get out of the city life for a couple of days.. So we got out of Columbus and found this affordable lovely cabin online. Right when we got there we already felt like home... the best part about it was we didn't have to leave our dogs behind.. they got to come along and enjoy the stay and this cabin has a huge field to play in with the dogs, also! The cabin felt like home, very spacious, hot tub was amazing of course, flat screen with cable- so you don't have to miss a game!, grill, and wasn't too far away from Old Man's Cave and the other attractions. Wish we got to stay a little longer, but we will definately be returning!
Our 3 dogs
Another relaxing visit
Our second stay was as peaceful and relaxing as the first. The cabin is always spotless- so spotless and animal odor free that our 3 dogs did not even waste any time sniffing around. They didnt seem to be able to detect the presence of any other dogs. They loved it! The scenery is beautiful, the cabin is cozy, and the hot tub is perfect. Mary Marsh is friendly and helpful. We will definitely rent again.
Our Family of 4
Overall amazing experience and great value!
We highly recommend the cabin at Marsh Hollow. Our family of four (and small dog) visited for a weekend in November, and we were so pleased with all of the thoughtful touches around the cabin, as well as the gorgeous scenery. The deck is a highlight and we spent many hours lounging there; I especially appreciated the outdoor speakers! We loved walking around the grounds and had two nice fires in the fire ring. We hope to return soon!!!
Craig and Rebecca
A wonderful break from everything
a wonderfully spacious, private and beautiful place to relax. Everything we needed was provided and so much more. Firewood,outdoor games, and even cheerful and playful vacation pets that greeted us while walking the wooded trail came with our stay. The large outdoor patio is the perfect place to watch the many different birds that frequent the feeder or relax in the jacuzzi. Thanks to Mary and Dave for all their hospitality.
Our Home away from Home
This is the perfect cabin for myself, my husband and our dog Lucy. It is cozy, clean and very comfortable. It's a place where we can get away from computers and cell phones, and just relax. When we rent it in the Spring/Summer, we enjoy the great deck and fire ring; when we stay in the colder months, we enjoy watching movies and warming up inside by the stove after a long hike. Anytime of year, we enjoy the hot tub! Our dog loves to run in the big field in front of the property and to take the property hike that the owners have marked for visitors. The cabin is conveniently located close to all the hiking areas of Hocking Hills. We get the best sleep when we stay here and leave refreshed, as sad as we are to leave.
The cabin and surrounding area was beautiful, restful, and very peaceful. We stayed two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The deck on the cabin was great to keep our family pet on without having to worry about her getting loose or lost. The welcome note and music on made us feel very welcome. Lovely place!
Great place to stay in Hocking Hills
We have stayed at the cabin several times over the years. It is always spotless, has a beautiful setting and has all the conveniences of home. I would think it would be perfect for anyone visiting Hocking Hills.
South Elgin, IL
A great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
We visited Marsh Hollow in 9/2010 for a week. We had everything we needed in the cabin for the week. We will definitely be back. We did a lot of hiking in Hocking Hills State Park, antique shopping and enjoying the beautiful weather .Ash Cave was gorgeous along with Conkle's Hollow. We went canoeing at night, horseback riding but need to come back and zip line. We visited Nelsonville on Labor Day, but the shops were closed . Some great places to eat were Olde Dutch Restaurant for the fried chicken, Jimbos for the burgers and Millstone BBQ. Make sure you visit the Washboard Museum. Due to the dry weather we were unable to see the waterfalls and that is enough reason to come back and explore this area. Thanks for letting us stay at Marsh Hollow
Keep your dogs under control
Upon arrival I was disappointed to learn there is a modest sized horse pasture with an electrified fence just 50 yards away from the cabin that smaller dogs can fit right under (if they avoid getting shocked). I was looking forward to privacy and letting my boston terriers run free on the advertised 14 acres. I had to keep them on a leash the entire visit because they wanted to go play with the horses. Also, the owner's dogs run free and although their very nice, they'll come right up and bother you and your dogs. This creates another reason to keep you dogs leased because they'll want to go chase and play with the owners' dogs all over god knows where.
Also, I didn't feel very private. The cabin sits just opposite of the owner's house, separated only be the pasture and a beat up garage. The cabin is a good distance from their house, but nearly a straight line of site. It didn't feel quite as intimate as other cabins.
We're going to try and take our dogs someplace else the next visit.
Response from Mary Marsh - 10/06/2010
We're sorry our cabin was not quite the right fit for you, but it is helpful that you have pointed out good reasons for guests to keep their dogs under control which we say on our web site, along with the fact that our dogs are on the property. In addition, the first page of the guide in the cabin also asks you to call us to secure our dogs if they bother you. We'll mention that to guests on arrival in the future.
However, we do not agree with your description of "a straight line of site" from our home to the cabin, but if that is your impression, so be it. You will hopefully be happy elsewhere, but we would advise you to keep you dogs leashed wherever that is as they don't seem to listen very well.
We had a wonderful time staying at Marsh Hollow. It is very peaceful and relaxing. We really enjoyed the deck, hot tub, and outside speakers. Our 2 English setters had a great time too, and were able to roam freely on the deck. Thanks for a wonderful place Mary and Dave.

Fun and Relaxing
We returned for a second stay because we loved the place. It was nice to relax and enjoy the outdoors with all the convenience needed for the whole family. The property and trails are beautiful...and our dog loved it too!
Romantic, relaxing retreat!
My husband and I were in the cabin about 3 hours when we decided it was our best vacation ever! This cozy little cabin had everything to offer. Great views from the deck with a grill where we prepared dinner every night. We watched the humming birds and cardinals enjoy the birdfeeders around the deck. The hot tub was great, clean and well maintained and very relaxing. From the music that can be played on the deck to movies/dvds, books and many other small details, Mary and Dave have thought of everything. It was very private and inviting. If I could rate it 10 stars I would!! Its a gem!! Can't wait to go back again!
This cabin was awesome. Surrounded by nature and very clean and comfortable inside. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
Best Value for Family
We had such a great time we didn't want to leave. The personal touches that the Marsh's put into their place made us feel right at home. They thought of everything... all we needed to bring was clothing, personal items, food and our dog crate. The cabin is close to all of the Hocking Hills attractions. The children had fun playing in the creek and spending time in the hot tub. The large deck faces acres of grass and mountain. The birdfeeder in front of the large window brought so many different birds for us to view up close it was wonderful. I also enjoyed the flower garden that attracted so many butterflies. We just got back and have friends that want to stay at Marsh Hollow! We are happy to find this gem!
Love the place, quiet and peacful. Perfect to recharge
sitting on the porch, watching the hummingbirds, listen to the cardinals and having a fire in the morning and evening, just perfect vacation.
We love Marsh Hollow! It is the perfect arrangement for us. We love to hike in Hocking Hills and it is close to everything there. The cabin is so peaceful as is the land all around it. Our children and our dog have such a great time exploring and relaxing. Even if it rains there are wonderful books and movies. The deck and the hottub and the firepit are great. It is just an awesome family get-away for us.
Marsh Hollow is truly a place where you can completely relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The cabin is absolutely lovely. This was our second stay and it certainly won't be the last. A great value!

A great, peaceful retreat
We always have a wonderful visit at marsh hollow. Everything is provided. We like to bring our dog with us. We love the area.
Great Stay for Family and Pets
This is an unbeatable vacation away from the busy world, right on the out-skirt of Hocking Hills State Park. The price for a pet is very reasonable and no matter how much energy they have, this place has enough open space for them to run and be worn out. The owners are a phone call away if anything should arise. It feels like you're far away, yet close enough if anything is needed.
Our stay at Marsh Hollow
We head down to the Hocking Hills once or twice a year and have stayed in many cabins. This was our first visit to Marsh Hollow and will not be our last, as we could bring along our four legged family members Arwin and Rowan. The setting at Marsh Hollow is so peaceful, the cabin is a cozy retreat you can tell Mary has taken a great deal of care in the decorating of this little get away, music playing when we arrived an added touch the large deck with hottub, out door speakers and yes doggie dishes.
Our first evening in we met the Marsh's pups
so sweet they visited us a few times. We hiked the trails on the property beautiful! lounged in the hot tub and played with the dogs (again so nice they could join us) We love the location as it is so close to all the great hiking at Old Mans Cave (which we usally do the longer hike from there to Rose Lake and on to Cedar Falls.
My Husband and I had a wonderful time, we needed to get away for a min this was our first trip in the spring, we had a house gutting fire in august and have just moved back home packing and contractor's this had been our lives for the past 9 months Marsh Hollow was a great few days for us to regroup and didn't have to leave our pups at home they to have been through enough.
Thank You Mary and Dave for shareing
your beautiful place, The Eberweins
Heaven on Earth
I absolutely loved staying at Marsh Hollow. The location is beautiful & so, so peaceful. It is very homey & nicely decorated. The service was spectacular!!! I especially loved the back deck, hot tub, & bird feeders. The bed was so comfortable & the living room ceiling is gorgeous. I will definitely be planning a return trip!!
A secluded, peaceful and welcoming retreat!
Staying at Marsh Hollow was a real treat. It was the perfect combination of rustic and comfortable. Mary made sure to provide special touches that made our stay comfortable and welcoming. Our teens and dogs enjoyed the wide expanse, the stream and the trails nearby. Although it is a bit farther from Hocking Hills trails, it's a great place to stay if you are interested in hiking, then coming back to a scenic cabin to cook out, sit in the hot tub and enjoy nature from a great deck.
Best place in the Hocking Hills
Hands down, Marsh Hollow is the best place to stay in the Hocking Hills.
Privacy, quiet, wildlife...it has it all. It's close to all the hiking/scenic areas, and
Mary and Dave have added all the touches, big and small, that make it a
wonderful place to stay.
Highly, highly recommended.
a get away in the hills.
when we got to the cabin there was a sign that welcome us. Inside there was a letter and a book telling us how to use all stuff in the cabin. the cabin was bigger then others cabins we stayed in . It looked like a log cabin inside and out. The cabin had woods on three side and a open field on oneside to watch wild life crossing. while there we saw deer and all sort of birds feeding. If you want to go out to eat there are places that are easy to drive to. The wife said we had to come back year at a later date just so we can see all the trees blooming to see there colors. The best part about giong its very private. Sitting on the deck sitting on the deck was very quite and peaceful.
The cabin was very clean and nicely built with much to offer. It was quiet and somewhat secluded. It was a great place to watch wildlife. My four year old son enjoyed watching the woodpeckers every morning and the deer at dusk. I highly recommend that if you choose to stay at this cabin or any in the Hocking Hills region in the winter to have four wheel drive. Even with the slightest bit of snow it is extremely difficult to get up the hilly driveway.
Very nice cabin
All the comforts of home.
Creek and woods nearby and a wonderful deck.
We loved it!
Loved it A+
We loved the cabin and our dogs loved the cabin and we loved Hocking Hills. Everything was wonderful and we will be back for sure. :)
We felt so at home at the cabin and so did our dogs. We loved watching the birds at the feeder, sitting in the hot tub in the evening watching the deer run through. And the towels in the bathroom are the softest ever and preheating the bed before bedtime, what a nice treat. Everything about this was awesome! and we got to bring our doggies.
The cabin was very welcoming. With music on outside, a fire going, food outside for deer to come and eat - it seemed like any little comfort had been thought of. The bed warmers were our favorite. It was nice to turn them on before we hopped into bed. Felt private and cozy. Close to the parks so you could get out and explore easily.
Very relaxing vacation.
My wife and I very much enjoyed the vacation. Hocking Hills is one of our favorite areas and this was an extremely nice cabin. They have some extras that you don't receive at other cabins, the outdoor speakers that you can enjoy in the hot tub, the telescope and the bath robes to name a few. The area is very private and very peaceful. I won't hesistate to stay there in the future.
A great place to relax
My wife and I had a great time at Marsh Hollow. We took our two greyhounds, it was nice to find a place that not only allowed dogs but welcomes them. We enjoyed a lot of hiking which was easily accessible from the cabin. The cabin itself was great, a very nice place. We cooked out one night over an open flame in the fire pit and another evening we grilled out on the deck. Each morning we spent breakfast watching all the birds come to the feeder; Red-bellied woodpeckers, Hairy woodpeckers, White-breasted nuthatches, a lot of Tufted titmouse and Black-capped chickadess. A very nice place to stay and relax, highly recommended.

A piece of Paradise
Ann and I would like to thank you for sharing your little piece of Paradise with
us. We had a wonderful time! From the moment we walked in the door we felt
welcome, comfortable, and at peace as we enjoyed the cozy and clean cabin.
Everything was perfect! The location was lovely, the fact that we could bring
our dogs was a must for us. It was peaceful and tranquil, we really enjoyed
the hot tub. Even the music that was playing as we arrived was great, we
never changed it except to watch a few DVD's and when we were out or asleep.
We look forward to visiting again. What a great way for good friends to catch
up and slow down.
This was a wonderful cabin with great views and relaxation. My fiance and I didn't want to leave. The cabin was spacious warm and inviting. The hot tubs was great after a day of shopping we will be back for sure.
A wonderful stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Marsh hollow. The cabin and "yard" were beautiful. There is alot to do in Hocking Hills but we mostly justed hiked with the dogs. Being able to bring our dogs along was a major plus, since they are considered part of the family. Instructions for everything in the cabin were provided in a binder for ease of use. Most anything you need is already provided by the Marshs so all you need to bring is food and toiletries. From the cabin it is easy to get around to the various parks,trails and caves in the area. We definitly recommend Marsh Hollow to anyone looking for a peaceful,relaxing get away!
Don't tell too many people about this lovely cabin in the woods of Hocking
Hills. If you are a couple or small family you couldn't find a more agreeable
place to stay. Close to all the attractions yet still set on a quiet 14 acre
parcel, this cabin has been our best experience in 15+ years of renting in
this area. I cannot even describe all of the special touches the Marshes have
made to the cabin and property. There are beautiful trees and bird feeders
surrounding the cabin, even a nice nature trail right on the property! All the
amenities are provided. There is a complete kitchen, fireplace, games, tv
with satellite, gas grill, fire ring (wood provided) and a wonderful sound
system (you can even listen to your I-pod with speakers by the hot tub).
The Marshes were sure to include not only a guide to the area but a really
nice internet listing of the complete happenings in the area during our stay.
The atmosphere is PERFECT. We rent in Hocking Hills at least once a year
and though we have stayed at many nice cabins this is the first time we are
rebooking the same place and this is within the hour of the arrival of our
first stay. Don't forget to book your Zipline tour. It is a BLAST!

A Wonderful Stay at Pinewood Cabin
We had a wonderful stay at Pinewood Cabin. Beautiful secluded property with lots of room for our energetic 7 year old English Setter to run and play. The cabin is totally furnished including CD's, DVD's, and books for you to enjoy. We highly recommend Marsh Hollow
One of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had!!
My husband and I along with our 3 Goldendoodles stayed in Marsh Hollow at the beginning of October 2009. We arrived on a rainy night, a little tense because of the drive in the storm. However, as soon as we stepped foot on the deck and heard relaxing music playing a calm came over us. (even the dogs) The cabin was lit and welcoming. The next morning we found to our delight 2 visitors (Mac and Bode). After introducing the dogs, Steve and I along with all 5 dogs went for a hike on Marsh property. What a great time!!! It was so hard to leave on Sunday and come back to the real world. Mary, thank you so much for allowing us to stay with 3 large dogs. It's not easy finding a place that makes your whole family feel welcome. We will definitly return (I just wish it could be this weekend)!! ;)

We love Marsh Hollow!
Marsh Hollow is a great cabin in a beautiful setting in the Hocking Hills. If you want to get away to relax and rejuvenate, it's the perfect place. Your dog is also welcome there. It's impeccably maintained - wonderful hot tub, great stereo system. We've been several times. We're always happy to arrive and sad to leave!

Homey and Serine
Marsh Hollow was the most unexpected and greatest finds of the cabins in the Hocking Hills region. The cabin itself is perfect for 2 people. The fully stocked kitchen, full size frig and patio grill makes eating in easy. The verticle log cabin is so homey with just the right touches and decorations and not too country. Our favorite part was rocking on the patio while watching the humming birds feed and the deer eat apples that had fallen from the apple tree located just off the back porch. We felt right at home from the beginning with the welcome note on the chalk board outside the front door to the bath robes hanging ready for our use. This was our second visit to Marsh Hollow and won't be our last. It is secluded, serine and the perfect place to get away from everything. We would highly recommend it!
Wonderful and Relaxing Experience
Marsh Hollow is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of Hocking Hills. It is a very easy drive to Old Man's Cave and other sites and is a spacious, clean, and well-supplied cabin. Our dogs absolutely loved it, and it was great to be able to let them out on the closed deck without having to worry where they would run off to. We recommend it highly and hope to return sometime soon!
It was an amazing get-away for the 2 of us. Very romantic too!!!
What a wonderful welcome; the music and the 'Welcome sign' and when we walked into the cabin, it was just like being in another world!! It as very quiet and serene and the hot tub was a 'God Send" and to relax around such beautiful nature will be forever remembered. We had a wonderful time and would love to stay again soon. Thank You for all your hospitality and we have spread our experience to many of our friends.
Thank You Again,
JJ and Pam
peaceful but active
The house was off the beaten path but close to all of the local attractions which was nice. The house itself was neat and clean and we definately enjoyed the hot tub when we came home from our walks and hikes. The best part was the location and cleanliness of the cabin. The only thing that would have been better was if there was another bedroom. Honestly, it was a wonderful experience and we would go again.

The Marsh Hollow Experience
Upon your arrival you are greeted by music playing in the cabin. Everything is so clean & all the things that you need are ready for you(except food)to use. The Hot Tub is a dream to come home to after a day of hiking. After getting out of the hot tub you are blessed to have robes. What a nice touch.
The location is really nice, the trail that Mary & Dave put in is wonderful and the wildlife is to cool to watch.
We can't say enough on how wonderful the cabin is. This was our 3rd visit and looking forward to next year.
