We enjoyed the "Blennerhassett by Candlelight" package last October, which included a paddle steamer ride to Blennerhassett island, a rustic harvest dinner, a tour of the mansion with historical interpreters, and the price of the hotel room. The entire experience was fantastic!
The hotel has been renovated tastefully with a very cool lounge. We enjoyed a drink there on the night of our arrival and thought that the service was great. The lounge has a well-worn but classy feel, with comfy leather chairs and a sophisticated atmosphere. We didn't try the restaurant there but were intrigued by the menu.
Our room was everything we expected and more: clean and decorated elegantly with a wonderful bed. I had an excellent sleep because of the mattress and quiet atmosphere, and I think that there was even a wedding reception going on at the hotel that night.
I also want to note a particularly outstanding aspect of their service: my husband and I had a misunderstanding about the booking of the night of our stay and came down a night early. Although this mistake was clearly our fault, the desk clerk allowed us to check in with no hassle. I don't know that this would be possible in their busy season, but it allowed us to have the wonderful romantic getaway that we had planned for.
We want to come back soon! We enjoyed a number of activities in the area such as exploring the Fenton glass factory and downtown Marietta.
