Retreat Stay

Our College/Career class spent a wonderful weekend at Grand Tara Lodge. The accommodations were excellent for the group of young adults attending the retreat. The game room kept everyone entertained and the lower level of the lodge was perfect for watching movies, playing games or watching football.
Kelly, the owner, was very pleasant and helpful with all our needs. The proximity to Old Mans Cave and other areas of interest was perfect.
I would recommend this lodge to everyone that wants a larger, clean, fun place to stay in Hocking Hills!!

We have stayed at the Grand Tara lodge three years in a row and they keep bringing us back! Each year they add great new features to an already amazing lodge. It is like having an entire resort to yourselves for the weekend. Every game you could ever imagine to relive your childhood and have fun at any age. Pool, sauna, hot tub, ping pong, darts, Pac-man, foosball, ps3 on projector tv, karaoke, pop shot basketball, air hockey, the list goes on. And who could forget the friendly horse out back, which we have named Esquire... This place is simply incredible and we plan to make this a continuing tradition for many years to come. I love the great Irish traditions of Grand Tara and a big thanks to Kelly for being so accommodating each year and making sure we always have a great time. See you again in January!
Owner's Response: Thanks for this great comment see you next year

Excellent Family Vacation House

Our large family with kids stayed at Tara and had a wonderful experience. The place is clean, quiet, and everything mentioned on their website was there and was exceptional. Lots to do - even when the rain hit one afternoon. Beds were extremely comfortable, no need to bring anything but your clothes. We especially enjoyed the karaoka, fire ring and corn hole boards and of course the pool! We will go back!

We have stayed at Tara twice, and both times have been a great time. We have a large family with a number of little kids. There was lots of activities to keep both the kids and adults entertained for the entire stay. We look forward to returning to Tara again next year.

Exceeded Expectations

The Grand Tara Lodge is a wonderful home to enjoy with family and friends. We had 8 adults and 9 kids (ages 7-13) in our group and had a great time together enjoying so many amenities under one roof. We found the property to be as advertised, clean and with so much to do.

Although there was a minor glitch in the initial reservation process, Kelly (the owner) was more than accommodating to us to ensure our satisfaction. He answered numerous questions for us as we prepared to make the journey from Cincinnati.

I had read some of the previous reviews and actually appreciate Kelly's cameras on the parking lot (I view it as extra security for the guests as well) and the signs in the house. Yes there are quite a few but the end result I believe is that the property is treated better and this leaves it to be in better shape (for our enjoyment) and for others to enjoy in the future.

We knew the kids would enjoy the games and karaoke but I was surprised how much the adults got into it as well. This provided numerous hours of entertainment for all to the point of raspy voices in the morning.

We did make it out for one hike to Ash Cave and Cedar Falls on the second day which was about a 10 minute drive away. The following day, I asked if anyone wanted to go to Old Man's Cave (had been there in prior years) and the consensus was unanimous that everyone wanted to stay at the house to enjoy the games and time together. We even had a few groups explore the trails on the property and participate in a friendly touch football game in the large backyard. The hot tub and sauna were also a big hit even though snow was on the ground.

The only challenge we had was only having one bathroom on the upper level with 4 bedrooms. We made it work though as there are 4 baths and 4 showers throughout the house. The eating and kitchen area worked out very well. The kids ate at the round table in the dining room while the parents could have conversations at the kitchen table. The kitchen was well stocked with every appliance you could possibly need. The only disappointment was the pinball machine as it randomly turns off during play.

It was fun to see the kids move around from activity to activity. They even enjoyed some "downtime" watching one of the numerous movies that are onsite on the huge projection television.

We are already talking about coming back in 2014 and look forward to making more memories with family and friends at the Grand Tara Lodge.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful response and we are so happy that you and your family had a great stay. We will look into the pinball machine immediately. We honestly did not know this was happening ...look forward to your family's next visit ...We also want to Thank you for Taking care of Tara so well and appreciate the comment on our signs. You hit the nail on the head. This helps keep the lodge in good care as well as helps the guest after them to be able to enjoy Tara too...We really do care about our guest and The Tara too! We want all of our guest to have a Great stay and return again and again for many years to come and continue to make and have great memories. Thanks Again Brady & Kirsten
