The Roca Box Hop - Hocking Hills


Rockbridge, OH, United States

Short Description

Shipping Container Cabin


The Roca Box Hop - pronounced [ROH] + [KUH] means “rock” in Spanish, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting name for this house, a whimsical home wedged between towering rocks in the beautiful Hocking Hills area of Southern Ohio.

Built using three containers - two 40’ and one 20’ has a private deck featuring a hot tub and a chiminea for those outside fire nights, nestled between the rocks, features two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and a hot tub. The home is big enough to host 5-6 people.


It's worth noting that the property is a total of 75 acres, home to 2 waterfalls and a plethora of hiking possibilities right on site.

Guests may cancel for a full refund minus approximately 4% taken out for fees until 5 days before check-in. If the reservation is canceled after that, the guest is entitled to a 50% refund if canceled 24 hours before the beginning of the reservation. Within 24 hours of the confirmed reservation, if the guest cancels their stay, there is no refund.

Roca Box
It was a great experience! We all had a very good time!

Brandon Hall
The Roca was AMAZING and far beyond our expectations based on the photos prior to staying there. We were blown away by the Roca itself, but also the views around it. We will 100% be back!!

Melissa Hickman
Great Stay
The Roca was wonderful! We loved everything about our stay! The location of the property with the scenery was just beyond cool. The way the Roca is decorated and setup is just amazing and it had everything we needed. Would highly recommend to friends and family. Thank you for hosting such a unique property!

The Perfect Getaway
The Box Hop team was extremely understanding and helpful for my trip out there - thank you!

A Magical Getaway
Wow, this place was incredible! My husband and I had our babymoon here, and it was perfect. There was a hot tub, two waterfalls a short walk away, and both restaurants and trails close by. We felt like there was plenty of room for us to stay on property without venturing out if we wished. Some of the nicest toiletries provided by a rental, and a fully stocked kitchen. My one (very small) complaint is there is no where to hang any towels. Other than that, no notes.

Whimsical perfection
I have a hard time finding the words to describe our stay at the Roca! It about took my breath away. The house alone is perfection, then you add the setting and the smell of the earth around you. We walked back to the waterfall several times and fully enjoyed the property. I loved the Decor so much and enjoyed all the little details. (The rabbit knob on the closet door made me smile). It was such a special place and I felt lucky to get to spend time there.

Favorite cabin we've ever stayed at!
The Roca was a beautiful, modern cabin and it's location between the rock walls was truly unique. We appreciated how private and remote the cabin felt and the interior decor was so much fun. Our only feedback is that we wished there were bigger coffee mugs and a larger coffee pot, especially for 4 people.

Roca Box Hop- Thanksgiving Stay!
We- my wife and two boys stayed at the Roca Box Hop over Thanksgiving last year. We had a great time!! The place was so interesting. More than just for looks we cooked a small thanksgiving meal there. We did some things in hocking hills and enjoyed retreating to the Roca. Loved everything- a great experience. Tx!

The Roca Box Hop
Our stay at The Roca was excellent. A magical, drop dead gorgeous destination. It's even more beautiful than the pictures, the way they nestled this amongst the rocks is unlike anything I have ever seen. So many beautiful details, so many beautiful windows. It was clean and had a well-stocked kitchen. The hosts give you all the information that would need. Can't wait to come back!

Perfect Getaway
This was the perfect spot for a getaway!!! The house is BEAUTIFUL and Erin was so helpful sending out such comprehensive and well timed information. We had everything we needed and it was close to hiking trails! Will definitely book again

Very cool
We loved the house and its location in the rocks. It was clean and felt luxurious. The hot tub was really nice. Loved all the windows. I also appreciated the communication with the hosts.

Amazing Atmosphere
My family of 3 stayed at the Roca Box Hop and it was nothing less than spectacular. The house it so adorable, and secluded. I will definitely be back.

Vallace Hunt
Amazing Experience!
This is our 3rd stay in the BoxHop homes. We always have an amazing experience! The Roca is gorgeous and the location is just beautiful! Would 100% recommend!

Emma Sainer
Amazing! Best Box Hop yet!
We absolutely adored The Roca Box Hop. It was perfection inside and out. Emily and Seth should be so proud. This one is a work of art, with so much warmth and character. We've stayed at The OG and The Hygge, and this one is now our favorite.

Tracy Pound
Staying at the Roca has by far been our most unique getaway experience.  I can’t adequately put into words how magical this place is and what it does to your soul. The pictures don't describe the feeling you get when pulling up and you take in the unbelievable setting, then when you step through the door and are blown away by the décor and attention to detail…this place is AMAZING!  The private setting, the outdoor lighting and the views from every window make you feel like you are in a whimsical treehouse.  We relaxed in the hot tub and enjoyed hiking on the property, the onsite waterfall, and other sights nearby.  The Roca Box really has it all for every season and we look forward to coming back! Thank you Emily and Seth for being such great hosts!

Christian Romero
Simply magical
There aren't words to describe the feeling of been here. The location, the building, the decor, the light, the thoughtfulness of every detail. We particularly loved the kitchen, the reading round window and the sitting area with this spectacular views. We took the short hike to the waterfall and just enjoyed the energy of the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay and allowing us to reconnect with nature and ourselves. It was revitalizing.

Whimisical Fairytale Come to Life in the Woods
Ahh-mazing is all we can really say! We loved every minute of our stay in this whimsical and eclectic shipping container home. Views leave you speechless! At one point my husband asked if I was going to become a trip blogger because I was taking so many pictures of all the big and small features within The Roca. Now our goal is to stay at each of the Box Hop properties to experience the uniqueness of each...we better get booking! You will not regret this stay!

One of a kind!!
Absolutely one of a kind! The details of the house are incredible. From the wallpaper to the appliances. It is tucked away and very private. Spoiler alert:: there is a waterfall that you can hear from the hot tub! Will absolutely be staying here again. Thank you to the hosts for being so amazing!

Amy Bornschein
Best place ever! We loved the private waterfall and making s’mores. Everything was wonderful and the beds are the most comfy! Thank you!

Our entire stay at the Roca was outstanding. It is such a beautiful place to stay both inside and out. The decor is beautiful and so fun to look at. Our favorite parts of the Roca were the gorgeous views out of the giant windows, the relaxing outdoor lighting, the hot tub, chiminea, the amazing smelling soaps, their very own blend of coffee and French press, the red fridge, and that the house was stocked with anything we could think of. We have 3 little boys who had a blast exploring, hiking outside, and making s’mores! We will be back very soon! Thank you! :)

Alyssa Aquino
Our time spent in this space was incredible. Everything was so great from the beautiful scenery to the detailed decor. While we didn’t want to leave, we left feeling rested and peaceful (which is priceless when you have two babies at home). My only areas of concern were: I taught my husband how to play Mancala and he repeatedly won.(understandably frustrating) and on Monday morning, around 9:30am, while we were enjoying some coffee we were pretty startled by a loud knock and “hello??” At the door. Given we were very hidden I could only assume it was an emergency, the owners, or we were in danger lol. Turns out it was a man looking to pave the drive and wanted to speak to the owners. No big deal whatsoever and definitely out of anyone’s control but still unexpected and a bit awkward. Truly, everything was perfect! Thanks for sharing this unique and cozy space.

Cheryl Gammell
Beautiful and unique
My husband and I stayed at the Roca for 2 nights for our 26th wedding anniversary. This is a beautiful container home nestled in the rocks. We enjoyed our stay and would do it again. If I had to critique anything it would be we would have preferred a simple coffee pot on-site with some creamer and sweetener packets for guests.

Drew McDonald
Great Time!
My wife and I loved our time at the Roca Box Hop! We were provided with all the amenities we could have asked for. This box, tucked away, is a great choice for a quick getaway!

What An Experience!
Our stay at the Roca Box Hop was just perfect! Everything went without a hitch and everything was accounted for allowing for an amazing getaway. Would highly recommend the Roca for anyone looking for a unique experience!

Roxy Madsen
Lovely, private, relaxing!
This will be hard to beat! Absolutely beautiful and well appointed! No detail left out! Stunning design literally wedged between the rocks . . .Our time was relaxing as we had desired with many activities near by had we wanted to be active! As with many, would have loved to stay longer if time had permitted:) Look forward to returning!
