Malfunction of Equipment:
We do our best to make sure all amenities are in good working order. Occasionally, electronics, satellite, hot tub, and other mechanical equipment will malfunction. We will do our best to repair these items in a timely manner.
Because of hot tub cleanings, the hot tub may need a few hours to heat to its full temperature. We ask that you follow all guidelines and policies regarding use of amenities in order to keep them functioning at peak efficiency.
Bad weather conditions may make travel to the Hocking Hills difficult. In addition, occasional power outages or other "Acts of God" that are outside of our control will not result in a refund. We will do our best to make your stay comfortable. We will make an effort to reschedule your stay within the same season/days of the week.
Hocking County is a very rural county with curvy and hilly roads which requires cautious driving. The road and driveway leading to the Castle may require 4-wheel drive during inclement weather or any significant snowfall.
