Hide-A-Way Hills Club, southeast Ohio’s Getaway Gateway to The Hocking Hills

5 Feb
  • A few FAQ’s about Hide-A-Way Hills (HAH) ….
  • Where do I find it?….about 7 miles off the end of the Route 33 bypass on Horns Mill Road, south of Lancaster. Horns Mill Road becomes Hide-A-Way Hills Road when you cross from Fairfield County into Hocking County.  Horns Mill/HAH Road runs for a total of about nine miles between Rt. 33 and Rt. 664.
  • Is Hide-A-Way Hills in Hocking County or Fairfield County?….parts of HAH are in each; you’ll find it located at the top of what’s considered “The Hocking Hills Region.”
  • What kind of security does it offer?….24/7/365; guards staff and patrol the roads…guards are HAH employees.
  • Is Hide-A-Way Hills a resort or a town?….it’s actually a bit of both; while we have the amenities of a traditional resort, most residents live here year ’round and consider it home…don’t be surprised to see folks waving at you as you pass by. By legal definition, Hide-A-Way Hills is a private club.
  • What about boats?….Lake of the Four Seasons offers about 4.5 miles of shoreline; only members can launch or dock boats…you’ll see various types, from jet skis to runabouts to pontoons.  Although members are not guaranteed a dock, there is no fee charged for having one.
  • And fishing?….there are also four smaller fishing lakes, where no motors are allowed. The lakes are stocked regularly.
  • Where can we eat?….the lodge is open Tuesday-Saturday evenings for dinner, and also has a lounge and microbrewery; you’ll also find Sunday brunches and other specials.  The golf clubhouse also offers daytime-evening hours, for sandwiches and beverages (hours may vary by season).
  • What else is available?….beach, swimming pools, playground, picnic shelter, outdoor chapel, airport, ATV trails, stables, great room, tennis courts.
  • How close it is to the Hocking Hills?….HAH is about 15 minutes from Logan (via scenic Route 664), where the Hocking Hills Tourism Association’s primary Welcome Center is located.  Old Man’s Cave is about another 15 minutes southeast.  Logan is about 25 miles from Ohio University in Athens, too.
  • Also, HAH is about 15-20 minutes from Lancaster.  You’ll find plenty of amenities in Logan & Lancaster, including multiple grocery stores, shopping centers and restaurants, along with Fairfield Medical Center and Hocking Valley Community  hospitals.
  • What’s it all cost?….As of 1/1/12, monthly dues are $152; that money essentially funds the Club’s ongoing operations budget…HAH is member owned, operated, and governed.
  • There is also an annual road maintenance assessment of $200; new member one-time-only initiation fee is currently $4,046 equal to 24 months of monthly assessments plus whatever current special assessments might be in place).  New member fees are placed in the Club’s Amenities Improvement Fund (50%), Road Fund (10%), and General Fund (40%).
  • Who runs things?…a members-elected Board of Trustees hires a General Manager to oversee general operations and hire other staff, and the board also approves a Management Committee to assist the General Manager.  Board and Management Committee members are all volunteers…likewise for all other HAH committees.  You’ll find volunteer committees helping to oversee the various amenities in HAH…greatly enabled by the new member fee, of course.
  • How long has HAH been established?….in 2011, Hide-A-Way Hills celebrated its 50th Anniversary.
  • Other Questions….just give us a call or email them to parkerteam@ikarensell.com
