What our guests are saying

"Our family of 8, Grandparents, 2 sets of parents, and 2 grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away in Hocking Hills. The Black Forest Chalet is beyond beautiful. It was so nice to disconnect from technology and reconnect as a family. We grilled, saw the nearby falls and just enjoyed family time. This will be a yearly trip from now on and we plan to spend it right here at Black Forest Chalet!"
