I wanted a cozy room in Hocking Hills, some fine food, and rest from the rat race for a couple of days. I had to work for a few hours a day, and needed a reliable high speed WiFi connection. I found Glenlaurel by doing an Internet search for those criteria. Wow...I will return again and again. This property has a wide assortment of lodging options (cabins, suites and rooms). I stayed in the simplest room--The Robertson--in the Carriage House. The staff was great. The food was amazing. For me, though, the most exquisite part of my two night stay was the hike in Glenlaurel's Camusfearna Gorge. Transporting, magical, heavenly are words that come to mind when I struggle to find words to describe how blessed I felt to be in such a place of natural, wild beauty. Ohio is so lucky to have such hidden treasures as this Gorge and Glenlaurel Inn!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A visit to Glenlaurel is laced with romance; from the moment the Manor House comes into view at the driveway entrance until it fades into the tree line from the rearview mirror at departure...the warm welcome at the front door feels like arriving at the stately home of a distant but approachable relative where the children are all grown or away for the weekend. Welcome into the Legend...the Legend of Glenlaurel. Experience the look of the Scottish countryside and the feel of times gone by at our luxurious Hocking Hills accommodations (rooms, suites, crofts, and cottages) that are perfect for romantics and dreamers. ... more less
