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!

The Glass House

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Glass House for my daughter 40th Birthday. When we walked into it, we found it to be simply beautiful. It was more than we could have expect. It looks just like it does on the internet. They had every thing we needed, and all the items that we had brought with us, we were able to leave in the car. It was very clean, It was located only 14 minutes from a Walmart and a shopping center. Having the land line was great, it made us fell secure, since our cells phones were going in and out. Darla, the (owner) sent us a welcome package with good direction so finding it wasn't hard. We are looking forward to renting the house again in the future.

An absolute perfect mix of luxury and nature! Sooooo relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

My first impression of the Glass House was Wow! My entire stay, it did not change.

Loved the Eco-friendly and contemporary design. It has all the amenities you need for a luxurious spa-like get away yet you are very close to Old Man's Cave, Conkles Hollow, The Rock House and many other parks and things to do. I really enjoyed that it was far enough off the road that I didn't hear any road noise. I was able to enjoy the sounds of nature I was needing. Had quite the view of the stars. The entire house and wrap around back deck are completely secluded. Beautiful scenery day or night.

We loved the relaxing Koi pond and wanted to take the full body massage chairs home with us. :) Didn't even get around to enjoying the movies and games. Kitchen was very nice and fully equipped. It had everything we needed.

The hot tub was great! One night it rained so we just used the Jacuzzi tub inside. The bathrooms and showers were unbelievable.

The beds are very comfortable. The quality of the linens and towels was amazing.

Unless you don't like secluded luxury, you will love this home!

Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family to The Glasshouse. We had four kids, ages 19, 17, 16, and 15. I wish we could have recorded their reactions when they walked in! Of course, due to their ages, they displayed the home all over social media...pretending they were on an episode of "cribs". LOL! All that to say, it was beautiful. It felt as if we were in a spa in the woods. We all had a great time, and we WILL be back. Everyone is already planning for it.

Nice home. Very expensive for the size. Cameras in the house.

  • 3 of 5

Let me start by saying the owners were very nice. I interacted with them a few times with some issues and they were good people.

That being said I was surprised by this home. First off the biggest surprise. There are cameras in that house. There is one in the main area by the coy pond and another out back. Maybe more, I don't know. I didn't see that anywhere in the description and it made the guests feel uneasy.

The coy pond room is the feature of this house. Its literally the biggest room in the house. The massage chairs near it are awesome and it was great. I wouldn't have a problem with this but the kitchen is quite tight, again, literally 1/4 the size of the coy pond, and smaller than the shower. Personally I would prefer a bigger main room with a slightly smaller relaxation area, but that is preference. The showers and coy pond give the illusion this place is very big, when in fact it I would not put more than 6 people and two young children in the house.

Second issue that isn't extremely clear (though we figured it out from the photos) the top room is a loft. You can hear and see the living room and they can hear and see you. This became an issue if you have young children that need to sleep while the adults want to stay awake. It made it impossible for our two year old to sleep there. If its just a few couples it should be fine.

When we arrived the floor was dirty, enough that all of our socks were pretty dark in an hour of walking around. I didn't notice it looking at it, but a friend of mine immediately noticed. The vents were also pretty dirty and the place looked a bit lacking in attention to detail.

Last, bring everything you need. The kitchen does not have a pot and is missing a few basic essentials. We had to make mac and cheese for the kids using a frying pan. There were no pizza pans (understandable :-) ). I just expected more in a modern kitchen. Not a huge deal, but an easily solvable problem.

As a warning, the wifi here is satellite. Slow as dial up. Not a huge issue, but you have no phone reception. This is likely not something they can't control, its more of a note.

Deck is very nice, hot tub was clean, good condition and hot.

All in all, its fine. The house is fine. For the money I expected it to be much larger so we were a bit disappointed there. I think you should also notify guests that they are not being taped, and I'm hoping that is the case.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving a review. To clarify for others, we do agree with this guest that it's unfortunate that there are too many criminals vs. getting a job to contribute to our society individuals that force preventative measures for theft and vandalism. Rental homes have live availability calendars for all to see when the home is occupied, and when it is vacant. If a remote area (in our case, over 50 acres of total seclusion) vacation home has GLASS modern doors for guests to enjoy the scenic outdoors, we were advised 6 years ago (when we spent 20 years worth of our life savings to purchase the land and award winning custom architect build our property), that we should place cameras towards the front and back exterior glass doors. I am so very sorry the cameras pointed at the back and front glass doors made you uncomfortable. We also want to use this opportunity to explain to guests considering a future stay, please read our property description to know that our third bedroom " has three enclosed walls- is open view to below living room". We also describe 6-8 guests are ideal, and limit stays to 8 guests or less, as this reviewer guest suggested. We custom built the house to have a relaxing vacation feel, such as large rain showers, indoor fish pond suspended into the floor with massage chairs adjacent them etc. Since we, as well as the majority of our regular annual rental guests only stay a week or less at a time, we decided we didn't want a big kitchen, yet one that was high end, has all kitchen needs. If I had been told during the calls I took and helped this guest with dining suggestions, spa services suggestions etc., I would have gladly delivered a brand new pot. I do apologize that we did not know it was missing, as we had two very nice pots prior. They are being replaced right now. As far as the internet, it is the fastest speed, unlimited data available in the Hocking Hills region. We have found it to be very reliable to return emails, make on-line dining reservations, google search state parks, spa services, activities etc. However, I do not think it is capable of streaming movies. That is why we provide some on site movies, books, magazines, puzzles for guests down time enjoyment. Our goal is to strive for 100% guest satisfaction, and we will continue to take the time to improve all stay experiences, to the best of our ability :) Sincerely, Darla

Tranquility in beautiful Hocking Hills

  • 5 of 5

Our family included; my wife and I , our two married children with their spouses our son and two baby grandchildren. We had a awesome weekend stay over the 4th of July Holiday weekend. W were able to connect with nature with such a pleasant surroundings . The Glass House is everything that is advertised! There is about five state parks within a short driving distance and we even took the train ride in Nelsonville,. Not far from a Kroger to get supplies. Highly recommend and be sure to follow the directions provided by the owner. Overall our family really enjoyed the Glass House!
