Ohio State Park Lodges Announce Specials for Seniors and Families Through the End of the Year, Including the Holidays

OHIO STATE PARK LODGES, October 28, 2013 – When it comes to offering an easy, convenient, fun and relaxing getaway as summer gives way to fall, Ohio State Park Lodges do not play favorites. That is clear with three special promotions available through the end of the year for older adults, families with kids and bargain-hunters.

The five distinctive Ohio State Park Lodges operated by concessioner Xanterra Parks & Resorts are located throughout the state and within an easy drive of major cities in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.  The lodges are Salt Fork State Park Lodge in central Ohio near Cambridge, Mohican State Park Lodge in north central Ohio near Loudonville, Punderson Manor State Park Lodge in northeastern Ohio near Newbury, Maumee Bay State Park Lodge in northwestern Ohio near Toledo and Deer Creek State Park Lodge near Columbus.

The lodges provide mature travelers with an opportunity to explore the many recreational offerings of Ohio’s state parks, including cross-country skiing, bird-watching and hiking. Families especially enjoy the indoor pools, game rooms or simply reading in a cozy chair by a roaring fire. And everybody will enjoy this quiet time of year and may even see the seasonal decorations in which staffs at the lodges take a tremendous amount of pride.

“Our welcome mats are out, and we are ready to greet guests in five wonderful locations with some new specials and our own brand of heartland hospitality,” said Dianna Rom, regional director of sales and marketing for Ohio State Park Lodges.

Three fall specials in particular are perfect for travelers seeking to sneak away from life’s demands before the end of the year. The “Bed and Breakfast” package for seniors is perfect for quick getaways; the “Kids Eat Free” program is great for budget-minded families with kids who are always on the go, and the “3 for 2” package allows guests to stay three nights for the price of two

Bed and Breakfast

Adults age 60 and above will receive a free cooked-to-order breakfast.  Plus, guests staying Sunday through Thursday nights receive an additional 30 percent off standard published rates. Other restrictions and blackout dates apply. Promotional codes: BNBSENIOR for Friday or Saturday nights and BNBSR30 for weekday stays.

Kids Eat Free

At all five lodges, kids ages 12 and under eat free from the lodge restaurant children’s menu when they are with a paying adult. The program is for up to two children per family staying in a lodge room. Some blackout dates and restrictions apply. Promotional code: FAMILY.

3 for 2

For bargain hunters who love a good deal – especially during the holidays – the lodges offer the 3 For 2 special. Guests staying three consecutive nights only pay for two nights. This special is available every day of the week with no blackout days through Dec. 30, 2013. When reserving the room online or by calling guests should use the promotional code 3FOR2. Some restrictions apply.

“Finding a great bargain over the holidays can be challenging, but we’ve made it easy,” said Rom. “This is an especially perfect opportunity for multiple family groups to gather over Thanksgiving or Christmas, for a winter weekend getaway or even a longer vacation and get a deal at the same time.”
