Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay over Thanksgiving was wonderful! From the moment we stepped in the door, we felt right at home. The amenities were top notch, as you know I inquired about them. The extra toiletries on hand was nice, we brought some but didn't end up needing so left for the next guest.



The surroundings and hiking were BEAUTIFUL! We could have done without the snow, but made the best of it at the caves and hikes. We cooked here everyday, even our Thanksgiving turkey. Ate out only once and packed our lunches when on hikes.



Thank you again for the beautiful glass house!

Loved the Glass House!

  • of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Hocking Hills! Although the weather was a little rainy we took full advantage of all the amenities of the Glass House. We loved the contemporary design and the eco-friendly construction. The koi pond was very peaceful and the massage chairs were amazing. We had a fire going in the fireplace and built a fire in the fire pit. Overall a very relaxing weekend! We will definitely visit The Glass House again! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home - it included all of the comforts of home plus some!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5
We are 6 women who do a Girls Weekend every year and this home was our most recent stay. The house could not have been better except for the rather loud & irritating noise from the Coi Pond located in the living area, which is on a timer from 9AM-9PM. The furnishings, beds & bedding & towels were all very high quality and very comfortable. The setting is quiet and tranquil and we enjoyed both the hot tub and fire pit area. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped with top of the line appliances and we cooked every night. The bathrooms are spectacular, plenty of hot water and a lovely jacuzzi soaking tub. The home is warm and inviting; we felt very comfortable. The owner was so nice to slow us to check in a few hrs early since the house had not been occupied prior to our visit; thank you Marla! We considered placing some towels around the fountain in the Coi pond but decided any cleaning residues might kill the fish so we refrained. But something soft around the base to buffer the sound would be a plus in our opinion.

Owner's Response: Thank you for lodging at our vacation home and for so many nice compliments about the property. Glad your ladies group enjoyed your stay!

So future guests considering a stay know, the interior water feature fish pond is on the lowest cascading water setting available from Aquarium Adventures- Columbus monthly pond maintenance. It is on lowest water flow setting during day time hours, and is completely shut off twelve hours each night via timer. Our goal was to reduce the sound of the water cascading over the center decorative pot by having it on the lowest setting, yet attempt to provide a tranquil area around the fish and massage chairs for guests to relax and enjoy the uniqueness of the space.

I do recommend that anyone with a sensitivity to the sound of cascading water not rent our vacation home, because the water flow is necessary to keep the beautiful fish alive. It seems to be working, serving it's purpose, because we have the same fish as 2010 that were placed in the home when it was built. Not a single one has died yet, which is amazing! For that reason, we can't change it.

Thanks again for the review!

Family Retreat In Glass House Hocking Hills

  • 5 of 5
Excellent panoramic views of the forest from every vantage point within the Glass House. All the amenities one needs for a very relaxing getaway, including huge deck overlooking forest, hot tub, fire pit, grills, 2 massage chairs, and a beautiful indoor Koi Pond. And finally, we really like how close we were to all our activities, like Old Man's Cave, Ash Cave, Cedar Falls, Zip Lines, and Lake Logan. We'll be back...

Glass House meeting

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful home in beautiful setting. It was perfect for the personal part of our get-together, hot tub, massage chairs, comfortable beds. Not conducive to meeting part though. No place where we could comfortably converse as the fountain is so loud. Should be able to turn it off if you want the meeting capability.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the excellent review!

The interior pond water feature is on 12 hours per day, and off twelve hours at night. We have to leave it on 50% of the time as recommended by pond management company, due to the reverse osmosis filtration system. The water feature and the fish food feeder are on an auto settings, so we do not need to interrupt guests during their stays.

As the home owner, I wasn't made aware you needed our vacation home for a meeting during your stay, or the pond fountain was too loud during meeting. The reserving party in your group communicated it was for a 50th birthday party long weekend in the peaceful woods and scenic Hocking Hills, and she didn't mention a meeting, or wanting the water feature turned off for a few moments.

I would have been glad to pay the service trip fee to have local contracted maintenance company turn if off and back on an hour later for you, if I had been contacted. The maintenance company requests a minimum of 8 hours notice for non-emergency service calls.

Thank you again and I enjoyed receiving a call from your booking friend to reserve our home again this Fall. I hope you get to come with her again.

One question? Where did you get the bed in your master bedroom? Loved it so much I want one. Would love to bring my family there after our ladies retreat we loved it.

To answer your question, the master bedroom European-like modern bed was purchased at EuroLife Furniture on Bethel Road- Columbus, Ohio

Glad you liked the bed, and your ladies retreat stay at our property!

Hope you can lodge with us again if your travels bring you to the Hocking Hills region.

Like a Kid in A Candy Store

Five friends gathered (3 from Cols, 1 from NY, 1 from Cali) for a working retreat at The Glass House. To say that this was a perfect house for us to both work and relax is an understatement. We have all traveled all over the world and all agreed that this is truly one of the most special places on the planet. Well done in every possible way! BIG THANKS.
