weather again

Trying to keep up on the weather updates but forget sometimes:)

yesterday it was freezing and oh so windy. I do not think it made it past freezing. Today 01/30/12 it was 27 when I left the house at 9:00 and it does not appear to be getting much warmer. I do not think it is going to get out of the 30's today either. Supposed to have a warmer day this week but I am not holding my breath. We shall see:)

weather update again for hocking hills

Weather was 53 and pouring rain yesterday, rain and 40's today. No snow which is good but when we get rain and it freezes that is worse than snow.

cold again

Today was another cold day, about 34*, pouring the rain though so I am hoping it does not go below 32* or there will be ice and we will not be able to get out of our drive again. Hoping that does not happen, have lots of printing to do and orders to get shipped.

Visit our website for personalized gifts, we ship everywhere, out of the USA might have a shipping fee depending on what is purchased

Colder today

Today was only about 32* much colder than yesterday but it is Ohio of course.

Hocking Hills is great anytime of year but of course there is so much more to do in the spring and summer with the canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, ziplines and more

People always ask what the weather is going to be like, though there is no way to determine that from year to year, (we are lucky if we know from day to day) we have decided to try and put the temp on here each day as a way of keeping track of what the weather is so people can see for themselves how it changes from day to day here at Martinwoods Cabins in Hocking Hills

Today is was very foggy, we were supposed to have a high of 40 something but as of 5pm it never made it over 34* and of course we still had plenty of ice here at the cabin.

Hope this will be of some use to everyone that reads our blog.

Lots of ice today

We decided not to rent the cabin this weekend due to the ice and snow. Since the Westwind cabin is on a large hill and has a steep gravel drive we felt it best to not rent to anyone because we know that they would not be able to make it up or down the hill for that matter since there was so much ice.

We would rather lose the money than have someone get here and not be able to get in and out of the cabin to go enjoy the sites of the Hocking Hills.

We are ready for spring but tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40's so hoping it melts the ice.

Snowy Day

The snow is beautiful in Hocking Hills and at Martinwoods Cabins but I am still hoping for an early spring, I just have a better outlook all together when it is warm outside and the birds are chirping. One of the greatest things about summer, at least for me is to lay down at night and listen to the crickets, they put me to sleep in a way nothing else can. I love the sounds of nature and cannot wait to hear them all again very soon.

If you are looking for a great escape then come on over to Martinwoods Cabins.

You will enjoy the cabin and we can add on things for you to make the stay even more enjoyable. Just ask us about our personalized gifts such as wine glasses, t-shirts, travel mugs, coasters, coffee mugs, dominoes and so much more.

You can visit our facebook page and see all the many different things we offer on top of the cabin stay.

Have a great January and hope for an early spring so we can all hear the great sounds of nature coming back to life.

Another rainy cold day in Ohio BUT the good news is we are one day closer to spring and with spring we get the beautiful flowers, trees budding and all the animals coming out from hibernating through the winter. I love spring and summer and cannot wait for the warmer temps but there is still a lot to do during the colder months. There is the winter hike this month at Old Mans Cave and just sitting around a fire in the great room is a great way to spend quality time with friends and family, free from stress and work.

Come visit us this winter for a great way to reconnect with your family and friend in the beauty of the Hocking Hills and Martinwoods Cabins.

We can accommodate up to 20 people in the 8 bedroom 4 bath lodge in the Hocking Hills.

If wanting to add some items to your stay we can help with that as well, whether it be engraved wine glasses, sandstone coasters, wedding favors, t-shirts etc we can help. We can personalize just about anything to add to your stay, weddings are a great part of the Hocking Hills and we can help with engraved wine glasses for the bride and groom or the whole wedding party, we also have engraved cake cutters and knives, engraved guest books etc.

You can view some of the items we do at
items can be purchased and shipped anywhere in the USA at we do ship to other countries such as UK, Australia, etc but cannot provide tracking info with free shipping. (depending on items purchased there may be an additional fee for shipping out of the USA)

Above normal temps

I love the Hocking Hills and I love the face that we are having some above normal temps, wish it would continue.

It is a new year and everything is going great. I hope that this year I can have great guests like most of the guests we have. This year we have had a few really bad customers and I hope that does not happen this year. All we ask is that when you come to our cabin that we built for you to enjoy that you treat it properly. We have had a few customers this year that thought it was ok to destroy things and even one group that thought it was ok to break into and unauthorized area.Mind you this group was not a group of young adults but a group that had parents as well as grand parents.

We take pride in our cabin and just want our guests to do the same.

So hoping this year we will have no issues:)

I love all of our guests and repeat guests and just want everyone to enjoy themselves and have a great time while respecting our proerty.

Hope eveyone has a great new year:)
