Eagle Wings Lodge does not provide daily cleaning service or maid service. Your cabin will be cleaned especially for you prior to your arrival. EWL will do everything we can to make sure the lodge is ready for your stay. We desire to provide you with the best customer service in the Hocking Hills so that you will become a frequent guest to our lodge. However, there are rare occasions that something might not be acceptable. Please let us know as soon as possible, we will do make every effort to amend the problem so that your stay may be a pleasant one. We will provide one towel per person. Please do not use bath towels for the lake. If you want more than one towel for the weekend, we suggest that you bring your own.
Is there cell phone service at the lodge?
You may or may not have cell phone service in the area due to the hills and forest. You may be able to get mobile service at the top of the hill or near the barn. Eagle Wings Lodge has landline telephone service for you to use once you reach the lodge. Upon reservation you can give this number to guests in your party arriving at separate times so they can reach you.
Are pets allowed at the lodge? And what is the wildlife like?
PETS: No pets at any time are permitted at the lodge. If we discover that you brought a pet in or about any facility, you will be asked to leave and will be charged an additional $200.00 animal cleaning fee.
We do have our lodge professionally exterminated, but it is not bug proof. Please remember you are in the forest, and that we have invaded their habitat, so chances are you will see insects and spiders. You most likely will encounter various woodland creatures such as deer, wild turkey, raccoons, squirrels, wild cat, wild boar, and you may even see a coyote. In addition to a wide variety of birds for bird watching you may sight a humming bird that frequently visits our lodge. Please do not feed or approach wildlife. Do not leave food out at night; you may have uninvited animal guests at the lodge.
What is Eagle Wings Lodge like in the winter?
Eagle Wings Lodge is open year round. Winter is one of the most beautiful seasons in the hills, with the forest open to view the ridges and wildlife. Our driveway is steep, and we do our best to keep snow and ice removed so that your cabin will be accessible, however, without 4 wheel drive it may be more difficult to drive up to the lodge door. So if the weather changes abruptly, please be prepared to hoof it up the hill from the barn. There are three parking lots beside the one next to the lodge for weather purposes. No refunds due to inclement weather or power outtages.
Is there swimming and fishing at the lodge?
YES! Eagle Wings Lodges has a beautiful 22 ft. deep spring fed lake that is pleasant for swimming with rafts and floats available for rental! (do not use bath towels for swimming, please) and fishing. (At your own risk, no lifeguard on duty). The lake has been stocked with 500 fish and is for catch and release fishing only. Please do not damage the fish if possible. 300 more were just released April of 2010.
Can I have a wedding at the lodge?
At Eagle Wings Lodge we love to make memories that last forever! Eagle Wings was built with one vision in mind, family coming together to experience laughter, love, and rest. As such the layout is intended for large families and groups of friends to be under one roof together, this layout is not ideal for weddings and Eagle Wings Lodge does not allow weddings on our property as we want you to experience the very best with us and weddings exceed our resources, space, and atmosphere of a warm, relaxing family weekend. This is a strict policy that we have put in place for our guests as a gesture of communication about what Eagle Wings is meant to be....
Still looking for options?- We love to have the family/wedding party stay with us at Eagle Wings Lodge as they prepare for a ceremony and reception at the Hocking Hills Chapel just 18 miles from Eagle Wings Lodge. Many families and friends have enjoyed both facilities as they have matched the needs of the bride and groom perfectly.
We do no allow bachelor/bachelorette parties to be held at the lodge for liability reasons.
For more information on weddings please feel free to call us during business hours (m-f 9am-5pm) at 1-866-398-9206
