Family Travels: Family Friendly Destinations - Getaway Cabins S. Bloomingville, Ohio

Tucked away in what seems like the middle of nowhere you will find yourself amidst the wooden cabins of Getaway Cabins. Our home for three days was the quaint Spruce Moose. The long driveway into the woods brought out a feeling of excitement for the entire car as we passed trees, chipmunks, bunnies and even a wild turkey at one point during our trip.

Jennifer Mitchell and her husband purchased Getaway Cabins from the original owner and initially had over thirty properties. After some thought and a lot of consideration they decided to down size to focus and make thirteen of those properties top priority.

Checking-in to Getaway Cabins was a breeze. As you pull into Chapel Ridge you're welcomed by the hospitality of Jennifer Mitchell and staff, and Bear the sweet black labrador retriever. The check-in cabin is also a small store hosting local artists candles, coffee, and art creations. Entertainment included the fixings for s'mores, and a great selection of DVDs to check out while you're staying.

Spruce Moose is a two bedroom cabin that can sleep up to six. Two in the two bedrooms and two on the pullout sofa. This cabin is just right if you're headed to the Hocking Hills area to hike. Complete with a full kitchen, refrigerator, stove, microwave and coffee maker. It also is stocked with plates, silverware and pots and pans, although they could use updating. We don't use teflon in our home (especially when it is flaking) We used one aluminum pot for cooking everything. I would have been thrilled with the kitchen had it had better pots and pans.

Our boys thought the cabin was awesome. They enjoyed having their own room and enjoyed exploring in the backyard and woods. Next time, they said, they're bringing their ball and gloves.

 Spruce Moose had comfortable beds, a place for us to snuggle as a family,watch a movie and made for a great place to stay for our outdoor/hiking vacation. We also enjoyed the cozy living room area and coffee table for playing our newest family game Phase10. By the way have you ever played? It is addicting.

Our favorite part was the seclusion, the hot tub after a long day of hiking and the wonderful fire pit to make s'mores with our boys.

We hope you enjoyed this review of Spruce Moose and would consider staying with Getaway Cabins for your next Family Friendly vacation.
