The Box Hop - Hocking Hills


Rockbridge, OH, United States

Short Description

Shipping Container Cabin


Calendar for 2021 & 2022 is up to date (and pretty packed). Please subscribe to our mailing list to be notified of cancellations and other Box Hop happenings:

Centered on 18.5 acres in Hocking Hills, The Box Hop is made out of 3 intermodal shipping containers that have been transformed into our home. A different take on cabin life, with a simplistic approach focusing on sustainability and modern design, this getaway offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a plethora of views.


Only 12 miles from Hocking Hills State Park, 5 miles from Cantwell Cliffs, 8 miles from Rock House trail -- there are endless activities in this area. To name a few: zip-lining & canopy tours, canoeing trips, hiking & biking trails, fishing, and horseback riding. There are also several local shops, restaurants, breweries, scenic tours and the John Glenn Astronomy Park.


Inside, we invite you to enjoy all the love and coziness of a small home and close quarters. Still room for eight at the dinner table. With a gas fireplace for the winter, and an “all glass” garage door with access to the rooftop patio for summer cocktails and sunbathing, we’ve got you covered.

Outside, you have all 18.5 acres to hike and explore close by or simply sit out and enjoy the scenes of nature. Cook on the gas grill or cuddle up on the couch around the gas fire table. After a long day of hiking, relax in the 6-person hot tub nestled among the trees.

We truly want you to enjoy every aspect and experience of simple living, nature and rest. As hosts, we will do everything in our power to serve you to the best of our ability. We are always available for questions or concerns. We welcome you with open arms and pray for much love, peace and enjoyment at The Box Hop.


To note: the driveway is a long gravel driveway that has a few steep spots and turns. The parking area is situated about 150 feet from the house with a walking path to the front door.


To note: during the winter months, the cabin may be difficult to access due to weather on the driveway. It will be plowed, and maintained after each winter storm, but during those months an all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.

Gorgeous Getaway Space
My family and I loved our stay. We thought the space was lovely and comfortable for us all. It was nearby to groceries, hiking, and anything you might want. We felt privileged to get a chance to stay here! We loved the inclusions of mini beverages and a washer and dryer to use. I appreciated the advanced guides and communications we received. My only suggestions about what could be better would be to add more outdoor lighting by the grill (when we had dinner around 7-8pm it was hard to see) and to maybe maintain the cleaning of flooring/under rugs or beds better. I don't want to be picky, but I think we noticed more about the floors having a 13 month old who finds any spare wrapping or dust bunny.

Not just a place to stay, but an experience!
WOW! This place is truly incredible and unlike any place we have stayed. The place is so beautifully an intentionally done. It made for the perfect trip with some of our closest friends. It was spotless, full of amenities beyond just the basics, the communication between us and the host was perfect and it is in a beautiful location! We had the opportunity to film our stay for our youtube channel "Journey More" so if you want a more in-depth look you can see it there! We would highly highly recommend to anyone and everyone!!!

A Unique Stay
Aside from a few minor hiccups with our experience and stay, this place was definitely a unique gem. My husband and I enjoyed our time at The Box Hop OG, and would love to stay again in the future with some friends or family. Everything is so modern and unique. The kitchen has everything you need which is nice. Ohio may not seem like a top vacation destination, but the hiking in the area is amazing. We would definitely recommend.

Box Hop Review
Unfortunately the place was not clean upon arrival, but a cleaner showed up within an hour. Overall a good experience.

Hidden Gem!
What a fantastic stay at the Box Hop! Mini getaway with my family for my fiancé’s Birthday. It is a beautiful place, immaculately clean and a brilliant location. Emily and Seth were great at communicating with us and checked if we were okay during our stay. Loved the decor and the extra touches like the outdoor fireplace, the gas grill, and the hot tub just made the experience that much better. Also, I can’t forget to mention the most comfortable swing outback where my little one dozed off in my arms. Overall just a peaceful and relaxing experience... I highly recommend this cozy shipping container cabin tucked back in the woods to anyone! See you April 2022 💙
