This week, we’re featuring some adventurous and relaxing getaway ideas from the Hocking Hills. Just an hour southeast of Columbus, pairing these two destinations makes for a great summer trip that includes spectacular nature and the pleasures of a big city!
The Hocking Hills is a go-to destination when I need a quick reconnection with nature. The scenery, adventures and hiking are incredible, and there is a huge variety of lodging options, from cabins, to campgrounds to inns.
While it's a little bit of a splurge, Glenlaurel Scottish Inn is such a memorable experience, it's hard to pass up. After a day zipping through the trees or tearing around on an ATV, Glenlaurel is a restful retreat. The rooms are the definition of cozy - wherever they can stuff goosedown, they do! Your choices range from staying in the inn itself, a secluded cottage or a traditional Scottish croft.
To make the Scottish experience complete, Glenlaurel added an 8-hole links-style golf course last spring! The traditional grass and sand fairways wind through the rolling hills, studded with stone fences and pastures.
In all, Glenlaurel is a great place to wind down from your Hocking Hills adventure! And the perfect jumping off point for the rest of a trip in Columbus!
