An Intentional Vacation Rental That Gives Back
There are a lot of vacation rentals in the Hocking Hills area but one of the draws of The Woodlands at Hocking Hills /Woodland Lodge is the intention to use this vacation rental as a way to help others.
I love this family’s heart to not only foster a culture of creating memories for others in their vacation home but also to use it as a way to help others in need.
Their children have each chosen a charity that they want to support and 5% of each rental goes back to one of the following organizations:
- Special Olympics
- St. Jude’s Children’s Research

The vacation renter gets to choose which charity is directly impacted by their stay.
