This was a surprise trip for my girlfriend and it was amazing.
Arrival: quaint check in. The lobby has a great lit tile gift shop. Receptionist was welcoming and gave us an easy to navigate map to our cabin.
At cottage: simply breath taking like something out go hansel and gretel book. It had everything we wanted. Kitchen, two gas fireplaces, beautiful views of the woods, king bed, and a very roomy bathroom, and best of all a outdoor hot tub! I suggest staying at the McLeod cottage. It was secluded and easy to get to.
Dinner: you'll begin your dinner in the pub downstairs from the dining room. Great place to have a quick drink, it offers a nice selection of wine but does not serve martini's. They do offer a nice cheese and cracker plate. Btw there is a strict no smoking policy here.
Meal: fantastic. We had steak. It was perfect. It came with a unique small salad, and orange sorbet. The dessert that night was not our favorite.
- 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
