We had to drive in the back way to get to the Mead/Hyde House due to the Parade of the Hills festival taking place. The area had us a little leary but once we got settled in, we felt very comfortable with our decision to stay in Nelsonville. Everything we needed was in walking distance including a coffee shop. And as mentioned in other reviews just minutes from Hocking Hills. I loved that there are no TV's in the house but it was a strain for my husband. Sue was very kind and full of energy. The Holly Tree room was small with a large bath room. The water pressure was low in the shower and the sink faucet ran hot, but that is the worse I can come up with. We would definitely stay again if in the area.
