The Box Hop - Hocking Hills


Rockbridge, OH, United States

Short Description

Shipping Container Cabin


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.

Worth the Wait!!
We reserved the OG over a year ago to spend a weekend with some out of state friends. It was totally worth the wait!! Everything about the Box Hop is stellar! It was a gorgeous weekend in a cozy spot. We used every amenity and cooked amazing meals in the kitchen. Truly a wonderful weekend. Seth and Emily, you two are amazing! I have loved watching your business and your family grow. We’ll be checking out other Box Hops in the future.

Amazing Experience
Incredibly easy check in, extremely responsive and helpful host. Amazing views and everything was so cozy! 12/10 experience!

Barbara Ward
Amazing !
My family and I enjoyed an amazing long weekend at the OG BoxHop. It was the perfect size and no detail was forgotten. We could not have asked for a better location, it felt very secluded and cozy.

Emma Garrison
Beautiful and Relaxing
We loved staying here with all of the outdoor space and cozy interiors. We would definitely be back to visit another box hop location in the future.

We loved every single thing about our stay. From the ease of booking and arriving to the relaxing and the exploring. The container home is unique and no detail was overlooked. We will definitely return.

This is our third visit and we absolutely loved our stay! Thank you

Great weekend
We had an amazing weekend at the OG box-hop. The setting is beautiful and surrounded by trees. The unit is well decorated and generally clean. If we had one complaint it is that the spiral staircase is not easy to bring bags up and down and the smaller inside staircase would be really hard to use for bags if it was the only one available in bad weather. Overall we had a great trip and would recommend to anyone!

Abigail Zaylor
Great stay
Lovely space. Secluded but close enough to everything in Hocking Hills. Would highly recommend BoxHop to anyone looking for a Hocking Hills getaway.

Kelly Smithback
great experience!
My family of small kids and I just finished up a week at The Box Hop - our first family vacation. We had a wonderful time exploring the areas and enjoying the home during rainy days. It was clean, had thoughtful design and comfort details, - overall it was a great experience. Thanks for helping us have such a fantastic time!

Heaven at the OG
Great attention to detail on the decor!!! Responded to all our questions and the location was peaceful and close to where we needed to be!! Will be back !

Julia Happel
The Hygge
Beautiful cabin! We enjoyed all aspects including the hot tub and sauna. Only complaint would be the difficult drawer pulls in kitchen - we all commented on them.

Benjamin Seals
Piece and quiet
Had a very enjoyable time in the quiet location in the Hocking Hills. The container home was a work of art and it was a pleasurable experience.

Katie Pettiford
Amazing stay!
We had an amazing stay at the Hygge! This home is so neat and incredibly spacious. We took advantage of the amazing views, hot tub, sauna and loved the projector screen. Hope to be back soon!

Caroline Hong
Great stay
We were here April 2023 with our family. My son is a little over 2. We had a great stay. Bath tub was great for our toddler. Space was decorated nice/modern. We were comfortable. Kitchen had all cooking supplies as needed. We used the grill. This place was close to all our hikes. We had a great stay.

Lora Suttles
Unique experience
Wonderful stay at the BoxHop OG! Location was private and the ‘cottage’ was so unique. It was especially nice to listen to the rain on the building and hear the wind in the pines. Just what we needed.

Martha De Wet
Cozy weekend away
Our daughter chose a weekend away at the Box Hop as her graduation gift. And it was the perfect getaway for a January weekend. We stayed in the whole weekend (except for enjoying the hot tub on the porch). We enjoyed all the amenities and besides faster WiFi, would not change a thing.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The place is beautiful and it’s clear you’ve put a lot of care and effort into creating a memorable getaway spot. Our only complaint is that we ran out of gas the first night leaving us with no hot water and dropping temperatures inside the unit. I left a voicemail and Erin did a great job responding and keeping me in the loop. She’s terrific. The gas company came out and resolved the issue just before midnight. The next night the power went out with the winter storm and with the frigid outside temperatures, the inside temp fell to 44 degrees in the unit. Obviously, there’s nothing you can do about a power outage, but with the gas issue the previous night we ended up losing heat on both nights of our stay. For the price we paid to stay there it was disappointing. Like I said, overall we enjoyed our stay, but it out a damper on the stay. We will definitely consider staying at one of your properties in the future (probably in the summer or fall, lol), with the saving grace being the quick and helpful responsiveness to the issues we had. Thank you and have a wonderful and safe holiday. - John Mishler

Wonderful stay!
We so enjoyed our stay at The OG Box Hop! Perfect Little getaway, loved the picture windows, the hot tub was great! The gas grill did catch on fire, but that was the only thing that went wrong with our stay. Highly recommend!

Winter Hop
Absolutely loved our stay at the OG Box Hop. Enjoyed watching the deer from our bedroom on the first morning. Appreciated the stocked kitchen supplies. Location was great for going into Logan and various Hocking Hills parks/destinations. We would've loved to enjoy the outdoor amenities more, but the cold and snowy weather kept us nice and cozy inside mostly. Now we are planning to redecorate our house similar. If we had one piece of advice, it would be to direct the heat upstairs. Thanks so much for a great weekend getaway and the goat yoga was a hit!

Amanda Hutton
Amazing space! Amazing views !
We had an amazing time. We felt very secluded but the store is still very close if you forget anything. space is beautiful- couldn’t ask for anything more!

What a great first Air BnB experience!
I had never booked at an Air BnB before but I wanted to do something special for our 20th anniversary. So I booked the OG Box Hop a year ago for this year's big event. My husband and I invited some dear friends to join us as this wonderful place sleeps 6. It was terrific! A great layout, wonderful finishes and furnishings, clean, and plenty of fun areas to hang out --- be it in the hot tub, on the roof deck, by the fire pit, on the hanging swing, on the deck by the gas fire table, and so on. Just so many places to relax and rejuvenate. We had the best time playing games around the big dining table; my husband got to watch some football on their big screen TV; we cooked great meals in their well-equipped kitchen; and just to be surrounded by woods and wonderful old trees --- the views out the multiple floor to ceiling windows were heavenly. The only improvement we would suggest would be to install floating shelves in the bedrooms for phones, eye glasses, and chargers. Otherwise --- absolutely awesome and we 100% recommend the Box Hop and its hosts.

Melissa Moeddel
Perfect getaway
Amazing home. Beautiful setting near Hocking Hills. Loved the large outdoor spaces to hang out and the inside was gorgeous and well maintained! Would definitely stay here again.

Susan M Lapkowicz
Lovely stay
What a gorgeous spot. The home while small seemed very open and roomy. We loved how each floor opened up to the outdoors and wonderful outdoor rooms. We will definitely be back!!

Weekend Getaway for a Group of Friends
My friends and I had an amazing stay at the OG! The house had everything we needed and we enjoyed all the amenities. The hosts and admin were very responsive when we had any questions throughout our stay. Will be booking again!

Beautiful Place
I had another amazing stay at The Box Hop. Erin was available when I had questions. Definitely will be returning again. -Juanika

We had the best time in the OG Box Hop
We had the best time in the OG Box Hop. Clean, inviting and well designed with great use of the windows and doors so the outdoors links with the inside. We explored local trails and came back to BBQ, hot tub and star gaze.

Adrina McDonald
Our stay at the OG Box Hop was so amazing! From the spa like bath tub, to the 2nd floor deck used for sunbathing to the wonderful and clean hot tub - we could not have been more pleased! I seriously felt that I was truly ‘away from it all!’ The setting was serene! I just can’t say enough about this place! It’s so beautiful - inside and out!Will definitely be back!

Margie Frazier
Beautiful and quiet
We loved being in the OG Box Hop. We loved experiencing the masterful thought put into this place in the tall pines. Extraordinary!

Kelly Bryant
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.

Hayden Hughes
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!!!

Beth Stanely
Highly Recommend this Unique Oasis
We had SUCH a wonderful time. The house is so unique and peaceful. It provided the perfect little getaway for our family. Thanks so much for a great stay!

Emma Sainer
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.

Rosanna Blanco
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 💙
