One of the Most Unique Way to Stay in Hocking Hills
Out of the ordinary.
If these are some of the words you are are googling for a stay in Hocking Hills, the Trillium, one of Hocking Hills Tiny Houses is a perfect match for you.
I’m always looking for an exceptionally fun way to stay in the Hocking Hills State Park region. When Hocking Hills Tiny Houses reached out to me to check them out for a hosted stay, I cleared some of my schedule and planned a trip.
Our family usually travels together but these looked so perfect for a couples getaway we left the kids at home and set out for a night away.

Why Stay in a Tiny House in Hocking Hills?
If you know anything about me you know that our family loves camping and the outdoors. When planning a trip or an overnight stay somewhere one of the things I make sure to check out is outdoor recreation. When you come to The Trillium you’ll find yourself in Campbell Cove Campground located right on the shores of Lake Logan.
I loved the location and I would call this a fantastic glamping situation. What is Glamping, (n.) a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping? The Trillium was just that.
That is a great question, and I have the answers! They have three tiny houses that the owners have custom-built, and each one has its own unique flavor. Two are situated at Campbells Cove Campground, and one is right on Lake Logan.
We were hosted in The Trillium, so let me start with this one. My first impression was WOW! I had never stayed in a tiny house, and I did not really know what to expect, so when I pulled up, I was excited to get inside and explore the tiny house.
As I opened the door, I was surprised to see how perfectly laid out the space was. Looking to the left was the spacious sitting area surrounded by windows that let in copious amounts of light, and I stepped up into the area to test out the couch. No kids means relaxation, and as I sat down, I closed my eyes and took in the quiet. It was perfect. (This space turns into a king sleeping area)
Hopping up from the living area, I continued my personal tour to the kitchen space. Who would have thought that a kitchen in a tiny house could feel roomy…I loved it! There is everything you will need for your stay, and they have stocked the kitchen exceptionally well.

plates, silverware, and serving items
bar style seating with live edge counter
As I finished checking out every nook and cranny of the kitchen, I turned my eyes to the loft. This is where the main sleeping area is located and as I climbed the stairs, I was amazed at the openness that I experienced. I thought maybe I would feel too enclosed; however, I did not. The windows that surround you up there give you a feeling of a comfortable and open sleeping space.
Climbing down the steps, I turned toward the bathroom. I had done some reading about this bathroom, and I was curious.
A Separett composting toilet.
Indulge me a moment as I tell you about the toilet… because you have to know!
#1 I love that it is a composting toilet and eco-friendly.
#2 You will immediately notice the sign on it that reads, “everyone must sit to pee.”
#3 You will want to test it before you need to use it. Familiarize yourself with it a little because you don’t want to be reading instructions when “it’s time to go!”
Situated close to the Trillium, the Juniper is the newest of the THOW! (Tiny Houses on Wheels) located in Cambell Cove Campground
As I explored the information available for this tiny house, I found that it is almost a sister to The Trillum.
Equipped with air conditioning, heating, full bath, kitchenette, induction stove, microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, coffee bar with Keurig coffee maker, pots and pans, Separett composting toilet, heated flooring, and a live-edge bar
You will find a kitchen filled with cooking and eating utensils; a unique live edge bar sourced right here in the Hocking Hills, a spacious loft with a full-size bed, and a large bathroom with full vanity with vessel sink, full-size shower, and exposed rafters that provide plenty of ceiling height.
This tiny house was what started it all! She sits on the edge of Lake Logan and has beautiful views off the porch. I personally love the location of this tiny house and will book it in the future!
She offers the same incredible amenities as the Trillium and Juniper.
