Experience Serenity in the City

Big Red’s Lodges is a hidden urban gem in Columbus, tucked in a peaceful 25-acre nature preserve close to Downtown, the Short North, college and pro sports venues and many more of the area’s popular attractions.

The lodges are just steps from the world-class OhioHealthMcConnell Heart Health Center so guests can take advantage of its amenities. Spending the night at Big Red’s Lodges is meant to help you recharge, mentally and physically.

With eight completely furnished guest lodges that define comfort in a serene wooded setting, Big Red’s Lodges is an alternative to hotels that allows you to focus on your well-being. And, if you choose, take advantage of heart-healthy activities and amenities at the McConnell Heart Health Center.

This refuge helps you manage life’s hectic pace — with an R&R getaway, a health-focused retreat, lodging for out-of-town guests or the desire to stay close to a loved one being cared for at OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital, Kobacker House or OhioHealth Arthur G. H. Bing, MD, Cancer Center.

Big Red’s Lodges offer the heart of comfort.

  • Living room flat screen television and fireplace
  • Kitchenette with a refrigerator/freezer, microwave and coffee maker
  • Complimentary high-speed internet connection
