The setting of this lodge is beautiful - an Ohio State Park with hiking trails, recreation areas, a scenic lake and so much more. The rooms are a bit pricey - I got an off-season special wedding block rate for $129.99 plus lots of taxes. The person at the desk told me that most of the rooms were over $180.00...

So I stayed at the lodge to attend a conference. I was given a loft room which sleeps 8 people so there was plenty of room however, when I walked into the room I walked into a huge spider web. Most of you would think that's not really a big deal but when you're a person with bug phobia it's...

We stayed here on a weekend in mid September with high school students. This is an old facility but it is very charming setting. But takes less than one hour from Columbus and good drive from highway. Our room has a small refrigerator and a coffee maker with balcony. Students stayed at a loft room which has 4 bunk beds...

I went to the restaurant at the lodge and the food was sub-par. I had lunch Rueben with coleslaw $10. The view is nice, but with a closer look the windows are dirty and the roof overhang outside looks like it hasn't had attention in years. The slaw had way too much mayo so my nice waitress asked if I...

I apologize your lunch didn't meet your expectations. I will pass your information on to our Chef for him to follow up on. I agree it is a great view and that is why our windows are professionally cleaned once per month and in house as needed. The overhang is done every spring and I will follow up on that...

What a wonderful weekend. Our teenage children enjoyed themselves, no xbox! The staff was incredibly hospitable and helpful. The young man preparing omelets taught our son how to make them. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable and so much to do or simply enjoy nature. We will definitely return! A thankful Westerville family.

I stayed at the Deer Creek Lodge and Conference Center for one night as part of a conference there (about 80 people.) The lodge is located well within the park. Note: it will be 10 minutes past where you enter the park before you get to the lodge…beautiful at the end of a peninsula with the lake on three sides....

There is a lot of wear and tear at the lodge. The thing that had us most concerned it the concrete sidewalks and curbs were crumbling in places. My brother in law uses a scooter to get around. He had to go around a lot of holes in the sidewalk to keep from damaging his scooter. It is also a...

We have been going to Deer Creek for years and have always had a great time. Our room was very clean and the outdoor pool was great. The lounge makes for a good time as well. The restaurant is a bit pricey so we had pizza in the lounge and it was very good.
