Whether an intimate wedding, family vacation or special anniversary celebration, Makers Lodge promises an unforgettable stay. Sitting on 5,800 square-foot of premium Hocking Hills territory, this two-story country lodge has been erected in beautiful aged timbre and stone. With unobscured panoramic views of the surrounding area, Makers Lodge is renowned for its incredible sunset and stargazing view-points. Our Best Views Award!
If you’re looking for a property with the wow-factor, you’ll find it here. Inside this sprawling stately home, you’ll be greeted by a grand two-story entrance. The high, vaulted ceilings expose picturesque wooden beams, while stylish wooden floors lead you through the property’s many rooms.
There’ll be no fighting over the best bedroom here; with seven outstanding rooms to choose from, each has been tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished. We’re rigorous about standards, which is why you’ll enjoy only the best over-stuffed mattresses, most luxurious linens and extra plump pillows. The Master Bedroom even has its own en suite, boasting a relaxing bathtub and walk-in shower.
You’ll love how inviting the living areas are too. Come together and cook in the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen. Topped with granite work surfaces and featuring high-grade appliances, a stand-alone ice machine and dishwasher, everything will be at your disposal when cooking up a gourmet meal from the fully stocked fridge. We’ve even gone as far as to hand-pick premium plates and cutlery for you to enjoy, so you can dish up like a professional too.
No one will have to eat on their laps either. The extraordinary, hand crafted wooden dining table provides plenty of space for everyone to sit, eat and be merry. It’s the heart of the home; the décor warm, comfortable and inviting. Later, head to one of the lodge’s two in-house bars to enjoy your favorite tipple with your favorite people. The kids (and most of the big kids too) will be entertained for hours in the games room, which includes a full size, quality pool table and poker table.
You’ll have noticed by now, Makers Lodge is no ordinary retreat and that’s further confirmed when you step outside onto the incredibly maintained grounds. As well as an in-ground heated swimming pool with its own basketball hoop, this country estate has a 16-person hot tub. Come sundown, you’ll be eager to sink into the warm bubbles, spellbound by the beautiful dramatic sunsets. It’s the best seat in the Hocking Hills, trust us!
A stay at Makers Lodge is incomparable. There’s no better place to reconnect with family, friends and nature than in this rustic yet luxurious setting. The best of both worlds.

“Absolutely amazing experience at the Rush Resort. The amenities were almost too much to take in, as we had plans to explore the surrounding caves and trails but ended up staying the entire weekend at the resort instead. The game room... full kitchen... the sights... We had tears in our eyes as we pulled away, but knowing we are coming back in September to stay at bourbon ridge makes it a bit easier to stomach leaving such a gorgeous piece of Ohio tucked away in the hills.”
“One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Not only is the scenery breathtaking, but the cabin itself is amazing too! I loved cooking in the five star kitchen, relaxing in the huge hot tub, and taking a break from the every day "real world". My fiancé and I thouroghly enjoyed our stay and will go back again very soon! It's a small piece of Hocking Hills heaven and I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone!”
“Stayed at the Rush Resort with a group of friends recently and enjoyed every moment! There are lots of activities nearby, but the lodge was so inviting and relaxing, there was no reason to leave! I'm already looking forward to our next visit!”
“This place is amazing! It is immaculate. Very well maintained, and very well stocked. I stayed recently to enjoy some time with my girlfriends. The house provided the perfect backdrop for the fun. I highly recommend! ”
“The Lodge at Laurel Run was amazing! I stayed there with a group of friends a couple of weeks ago, and our stay could not have been more perfect. Many different aspects of the lodge went into making our stay perfect, but most important to me were: (1) The kitchen is very well equipped; (2) All areas of the Lodge were clean; (3) The beds were comfortable; (4) There are numerous large hang out spaces that we could play games or just sit and relax; and (5) The property managers were kind and very attentive. Check it out if you have the chance!”
“Beautiful lodge. They had everything we needed to really enjoy our weekend. Would love to go again.”
