Yurts in Ohio: Glamping at The Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls

Flight Path

As one of the most unique places I’ve ever stayed, the yurts at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls takes glamping in Ohio to a whole new level.

Glamping is a term for “glamorous camping” and started to become popular in the late ‘90s and ‘00s during various international recessions, as travelers looked for more affordable ways to travel.

What Does the Inside of a Yurt Look Like?

Yurts can vary greatly but in general, a yurt is one large, round room with a skylight in the center of the ceiling. Usually, the wooden ribs that hold up the structure are visible from inside the yurt, although this may be covered for aesthetics.

The Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls is best known for its Hocking Hills cabins and cottages. The Inn offers luxury cabins, cottages, bed & breakfast rooms, and lodges, in addition to three Pacific-style yurts which were added in 2017.

Cabins are spread throughout the woods of the property,

which is bordered by Hocking Hills State Park on three sides. The on-site restaurant, Kindred Spirits, serves up gourmet American fare in a casual fine-dining atmosphere. Spa treatments occur in an 1840’s cabin on the property; the perfect end to a hiking weekend.

We stayed in the yurt named Firefly. A bright and cozy space welcomed us with cute décor that complemented the Douglas Fir wood frame and white insulated walls.

The Inn’s onsite restaurant, Kindred Spirits, provides casual fine-dining and serves local gourmet meals. The restaurant is located in the property’s original 1840’s log cabin, making it a neat place to dine for history lovers.

Fall brings colorful drives and hikes, plus cool nights that are perfect for sipping warm cider on your yurt deck. Winter is a beautiful time to experience yurt glamping; whether you partake in outdoor winter adventures or just snuggle up by the woodstove for a romantic weekend indoors.
