Activities for Your Hocking Hills Mini-Moon 

1. Explore Hocking Hills State Park 

Hocking Hills State Park is a must-see for anyone traveling to our area. This forested wonderland is filled with scenic hiking trails, rock formations, recess caves, and waterfalls. It’s the perfect place to spend uninterrupted quality time with your partner.  

One of our favorite attractions at this state park is the hike to Old Man’s Cave. Even better, it’s easy to access because our property is surrounded on three sides by Hocking Hill State Park. The Grandma Gatewood Trail starts at the Welcome Center and takes a relatively straight route through the gorge to Old Man’s Cave. Afterward, enjoy a to-go brown bag lunch in one of the park’s picnic areas.  

2. Get a Couple’s Massage  

Please note that due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the Ohio State Medical Board has implemented a temporary pause for couple’s massages. Thank you for understanding.  

After the hike, give your muscles the TLC they deserve with a visit to our Hocking Hills spa. The Spa at Cedar Falls offers a secluded and intimate retreat for couples. Our spa’s most popular service is the couple’s massage. This 60-minute service includes a relaxation massage side-by-side with your partner surrounded by whispering pine trees and nature. 

3. Reserve a Table at Kindred Spirits 

Before you turn in for the night, indulge in a romantic dinner at Kindred Spirits. This restaurant offers a casual fine-dining experience right here at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls. The selections are inspired by the season and our chefs try to use locally sourced, in-season ingredients wherever possible.
