Each room features a rustic bed, vanity countertops and nightstands made from sustainably harvested oak and aspen trees on Hocking College’s Nelsonville campus. Timber Harvesting and Tree Care students, with their instructors, selected the trees and felled them for the project. After the students milled the timber, Hocking College alumnus Dale Bockrath began crafting the wood.
The Lodge serves as a live learning lab for students in the Hospitality & Events Management program. Learning and working at The Lodge gives our students real-world experience doing what they love.
The hotel bar will be stocked with beer, spirits and eventually wine made by the Fermentation Science students.
