“Cozy clean cottages. Great for an overnight or weekend stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We found this place on a Living Social offer and took advantage of the deal for a quick getaway. We stayed in cottage 116 that featured a small kitchenette, fireplace and a nice eating and sitting area in a bright cozy round turret. Our cottage was very clean, furnished nicely, comfortable and very quiet. The setting at the top of a hill overlooking a valley was quite scenic, especially since the ground was covered with fresh snow.

We made our reservation with very little notice and the owners were very easy to work with and responsive to our needs. Overall it was a great getaway experience and one we will most likely repeat.

There is not enough I could say to express how thoroughly impressed I was with our weekend stay at Spruce Hill. Our cottage was exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. Elizabeth’s special touches to the romance package were so beautifully arranged that you can help but stop for a minute to take it all in. Her breakfast in bed was a delicious experience as well. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, the service is exceptional and far surpasses anywhere we have been in recent years. Spruce Hill is by far one of the best places I could recommend to anyone.

We spend our Christmas as an entire family at cottages124-127. The cottages are small, but very 'homey'. Each one of our cottages were different: one had a mini-kitchen, one had a deck, one had a fireplace, one had a fold-out couch, etc. Each came with a jacuzzi tub & stand-up shower, plenty of plush, soft towels, your basic shampoos, lotions & soaps. They were all decorated comfortably, with neutral colors and clean linens. They also all came with plates, eating utencils, coffee makers,microwaves, hair dryers and ironing boards. Snow Trails is literally right outside the back door. The scenery is gorgeous, the views are beautiful!
The downfalls: even though it was December when we stayed there, we were finding ourselves killing spiders & bugs pretty often. The back door to our deck wouldn't shut properly, so we couldn't lock it. The driveway is VERY steep and wasn't salted or cleaned off. We had to get out and push 3 of our sister's cars up the hill. Our driveway/parking lot in front of our cottages never got cleaned or salted either, nor our steps. We followed our 75-year old dad around, for fear of him falling! The lodge lobby or check-in building was hit-or-miss, every time we walked down there it was locked. There is a number you can call if the building is locked, but we tried 4 different times and got no answer. The lady in the lobby speaks very broken English, but was very friendly and welcoming. The cottages were very inconsistant. One would have 3 coffee mugs, 4 spoons, 1 bottle of shampoo, 4 lotions. The next cottage would have 3 towels, 6 washcloths, 1 coffee mug, 1 salt shaker. Each of our cabins had at least 1 light burnt out. Only 2 of our cabins had phones in them (and the area isn't AT&T friendly).
Within 50 feet of our back door was the Snow Trails hills. Even though the trails were'nt open, the kids still sledded & boarded down the hills. (Natural & made snow) The Snow Trails lodge is beautiful, there was a live band there one night. Beautiful views, friendly people.

Room Tip: Even though you're literally a rocks throw from the slopes, you don't hear a thing!

Just a few miles from Mansfield, OH, Spruce Hill is a gem hiding in the hinterland.

Built next to a ski resort, Spruce Hill is a quaint get-a-way. There is a central lodge and several cottages, some with porches and some with sun rooms. This is a perfect spot to just get away from it all, but conveniently located to some excellent dining, state parks and if the snow is falling... Skiing.

Our room was comfortable, the bed just the way we like them.

We came back from a trip to Malabar Farm and had lunch on the deck. A glass of wine and a book. We then took the opportunity for a couple massage... Bliss.

Spruce Hill is an ex Ellen's choice for that get away from it all weekend.

What a lovely place! We took advantage of a Living Social offer and spent November 9 & 10 in cottage 127. We chose it because it had a deck, and after we requested it I thought we were foolish, because who needs a deck in November? We did - the temperatures were in the high 60s and wine, cheese, fruit and books on the deck made for a wonderful afternoon.

The room is very cozy and well appointed, with a comfortable king sized bed, a kitchenette and a gorgeous jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was beautifully set up with candles and rose petals for us, but after a day of hiking, sightseeing, an in-room couples massage and a wonderful dinner at the Malabar Farm Restaurant (separate review) we were too exhausted to indulge!

Coffee maker with coffee provided, microwave and toaster worked perfectly. Didn't use the stove or the TV, so I can't report on those. Our only problem was a non-functional hair dryer which was quickly remedied by the management who brought a replacement right up.

The only reason I did not give Spruce Hill 5 stars was due to the lack of wi-fi and, more important to us, the lack of good reading light anywhere in the room. We are avid readers, but it was impossible after dark as there wasn't a single lamp in the room bright enough for reading. The lack of light is why I gave the room only 3 stars - otherwise it was perfect.

Spruce Hill is a perfect romantic getaway - peaceful and private. It feels like you're the only people in the world. Just an hour and a half from Cleveland, but you feel you've really gotten away. We will return.

Gave a gift certificate to a couple getting married and they loved it, said very quiet and private and Jacuzzi tub was very romantic! I had went and checked it out before giving as a gift and will recoomend this neat place to anyone wanting a romantic night away. Is right next to ski lodge so would be great place in the winter months. Also nice place for small family reunion or something like that.

Went for a two night stay to the Spruce Hill Inn & Cottages and are very happy we found this retreat in the outskirts of Mansfield. The accommodations were perfect for a romantic getaway, and the area was beautiful being cut out of the high forested hills. The inn and cottages sit high up on a hill right next to Snow Trails skiing. We had the 'romance package' added to our cottage which was a really nice touch. When entering our cottage, the owner (talked to her three times, incredibly nice!) had sprinkled rose petals around the jacuzzi bathtub (see pic) and provided bubble bath, salts and many tea lights for ambiance. We also got a bottle of bubbly and two glasses in an ice wine container w/chocolates with the package. The bed was very comfy, and had ample blankets (extras both on the couch and in the cabinet) and pillows were both firm & soft if you wanted to mix it up.

All in all I highly recommend for couples, or girls night out, as it is right up the road from shopping, Mansfield, and many other tourist attractions in the area. We'll be back!
