Glenlaurel Scottish Country Inn - A Hocking Hills Retreat
May 16, 2013
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!
