This was our 2nd visit to Glenlaurel. This time stayed in a East Croft. Loved the screened porch, hot tub and extra living space of a croft. Food as always was wonderful. My husband tried the Scottish Links Golf and thought it was entertaining. I walked along with him and the course is very pretty and a great opportunity to see some wildlife (deer and bunnies). We love walking the gorge in the morning before breakfast, it is a great way to start the day.

We truly appreciate your comments. The east crofts are a guest favorite and the screened porches are a fabulous treat too. The Links Course is a really neat amenity and we’re so glad you were able to give it a swing! We hope to see you again soon.

Great food, superior lodging---Glenlaurel has it all. We tried the golf course---Scottish style---this time and found it entertaining as well as challenging. Chef Erik's food, as usual, was outstanding. The Pub is now able to serve wine and limited mixed drinks.

This is our favorite place to relax and take in the beauty of the Hocking Hills. The inn
has beautiful cottages and rooms, each one is furnished beautifully and with comfort in mind.
We love to stay in The McCleod cottage, although we have never been disappointed in any
of the accomadations. Most impressive is the expert staff, our every need or request is
tended to. They are there to make sure your stay is perfect. The chef is more than amazing,
the meals are superb, all skillfully prepared. The grounds are lovely, a very peacful setting.
The new scottish golf course is a great new addition to the property and the scottish ambience
of Glenlaurel.

Room Tip: The screened in porch in the 4 East crofts is lovely in summer. All cottages and crofts have firep...

Tucked away in the rolling hills outside of Logan, Ohio is a hidden gem. My wife and I recently discovered the Glenlaurel Inn and know that we will be going back. The staff was corteous, the grounds well-kept and the food was FANTASTIC. They have also recently added an 8 hole sand tee/green golf course which pays hommage to the games' origin with old hickory shaft clubs - very unique and enjoyable.

My wife and I have been staying at Glenlaurel Inn for over 15 years now. Never once have we been disappointed with any aspect of our experience. The rooms and grounds are wonderful and dinner is always amazing. We were so pleased to discover that an eight hole golf course had just been opened. What a wonderful historical experience on a primitive course with hickory clubs! My wife and I had so much fun with the wonderful addition. We cant wait to return for another relaxing experience at the Inn.

My husband and I spent our 15th wedding anniversary at Glenlaurel after listening to my mother and sister rave about the place for several years. It is a lovely inn and the surroundings are beautiful. The rooms are very clean and the staff was very friendly. We stayed in the MacGregor room, which is right next to the kitchen, so if you aren't an early riser, you may awaken earlier than you'd like! We ate breakfast the first day on the large deck and the rest of our meals in the dining room. We found the staff to be attentive at all of our meals. We had the seven course meal on Saturday and the food was very good, but not exceptional. The poetry reading was done quickly by one of the wait staff and was uninspired, I thought.The rooms are tasefully decorated and had several nice touches, such as robes to use during your stay, a small refrigerator in your room, a few snacks, CD player, wine opener, coffee maker, and glassware. There are no TV's in the room, but plenty of reading material and they have a nice selection of books in the downstairs pub. The cocktail hour before dinner had a good selection of cheese and fruit that were complimentary.

They no longer have a separate spa facility, so massages are done in your room. The masseuse didn't get the message of my request, so after waiting ten minutes, I called the front desk and within another ten minutes, she arrived. She did a great job, but I can get just as good of a maasage for half the price elsewhere. My husband tried the links golf course (8 holes with old fashioned hickory sticks, packed sand 'greens' and piles of sand used for tees). He enjoyed this while I had my massage.

One of the very enjoyable things we did was to drive the surrounding area on the twisty, hilly roads. There are several places to hike on the Glenlaurel grounds and beyond. We found Old Man's Cave to be crowded, but interesting. We also enjoyed the hike down to the Rock House. While we enjoyed our stay, we felt it was a bit overpriced. But we will probably return. I think the fall and winter would be wonderful seasons to visit.

Room Tip: Macgregor room lovely, but next to kitchens. Not a problem if you tend to arise before 7:30am.

Thank you for being our guests and Happy Anniversary - again! How disappointing to hear about the poetry reading. That is certainly not how it is usually done and your comments have been directed to our Dining Room Manager. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your visit and look forward to your return.

Wanted to enjoy a weekend with the hubby, and prior to our arrival, mistakes were made by the staff. Only a "sorry" was given, and no willingness or desire to rectify the situation, and blaming it on the consumer; brought about a bitter beginning to the getaway. Overlooked the staff's ignorance from the manager down...and went ahead with the stay. Chose to not spend any money at Glenlaurel, opting to go to the Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls for our massages, lunch and dinner.which were all awesome.
Breakfast is included in the "overpriced" accommodations at Glenlaurel.....but honestly, the food at Waffle House tastes about the same, and actually arrives at your table hot. The wait staff walked by and offered no refills on beverages, knowing they were empty.

So, if you are looking for great service, great food, welcoming staff willing to admit they were wrong, and try to do what they can to keep you happy (and spend money at their Inn).....DON'T GO TO GLENLAUREL!!

It used to be great when Michael owned the place, but now you can tell that three Columbus business owners are involved..........all about the bottom line....(Money).

I agree with the other comments made regarding the food, golf course and services, they are all true representatives of what Glenlaurel is about. But when you read the comments posted by one of the owners, you see they say the same thing...come again and receive the welcoming you should have!!!! No thank you!!!

Thank you very much for your feedback. We value your opinion and strive to always make each guest’s experience special. We apologize we fell short of your expectations. We are curious if you asked to speak to a manager to rectify your situation?

Regarding our menu, we have a different style of service and food than the Inn at Cedar Falls and we are very disappointed to hear that you felt our food was less superior. We take great pride in all the selections, preparations, and service that we offer and we get many guests who are blown away by our service. We have shared your comments with our Executive Chef and our Dining Room Manager.

Glenlaurel's spirit is alive and the original dream still grows. The gracious staff and owners strive to continue the ambiance that was originally created by Michael. Even though the dreamer is no longer at Glenlaurel, the dream is still alive and continues to grow. Change is inevitable, but the original vision is still what makes Glenlaurel so special.
