We ask that you please be patient in the event that this may happen.

Extermination/Insects

The lodge is located in a rural area, which is surrounded by woods.   As a result, there may be some insects in or around the lodge at times. Please be aware that the lodge is exterminated on a regular basis and that we instruct all guests to keep all doors and windows closed at all times.

Weather/Power Outages

Bad weather conditions may make travel to the Hocking Hills difficult. In addition, occasional power outages or other "Acts of God" that are outside of our control will not result in a refund of any monies paid.  We will do our best to make your stay comfortable.

Driving Conditions

Hocking County is a very rural county with curvy and hilly roads which requires cautious driving. The roads leading to the Turkey Ridge Lodges are paved and maintained by the townships. On occasion, especially in winter months, roads and/or driving conditions may be treacherous. At these times, 4-wheel drive is absolutely required. Some roads (driveway to Turkey Ridge Lodges) both are steep and will require 4-wheel drive during inclement weather or any significant snowfall.
