Anyone have any suggestions for getaway cabins in Ohio?

Asked by CrammaDoodle (177 points ) July 25th, 2012

Well, my boyfriend and I have been dating for over three years and we were talking about going on a little getaway.

The thing is, it has to be in Ohio.

I’ve been looking but I can’t find exactly what I’ve been looking for.

Just want something cozy and romantic with a hot tub and maybe a fire, and not like $1,000 a night!

The idea timing for this is that it’s going to happen in the winter (snowy months), so I’d really like something with a forest surrounding. :)

If anyone knows of a place or they’ve been somewhere just fantastic, I’d appreciated the post.

Thank you!

Several of Ohio’s State parks have some wonderful lodges like hotels you can stay in. They have the amenities you mention. In addition, they can be booked and put on a gift certificate for gifting for anniversaries, birthdays, etc. Wife and I are going to try the Hocking hills lodge for our anniversary this autumn when the leaves change.

Take a look here. I used this website to book a vacation home back in April for one week and I wasn’t disappointed. Look through the listings and if you find something you like, email the property owner requesting a quote for however long you’re planning to stay and they’ll probably get back to you asking how much you’d like to spend – give them a range and, most likely, they’ll try to accommodate your budget (depending on the demand for that time of year). Shop around for a bit, email as many owners as you can, and then compare their offers for the best value.

There’s another website that I’ve used in the past but I can’t remember it off the top of my head. If I find it I’ll let you know. Best of luck :)

I once went to Ravenwood Castle and found it to be a very romantic environment. At around $150/night, it is not going to break the bank. I stayed in what they are now calling the King Arthur Suite (it had a different bed then). The suite is two stories and the upstairs also has a lot of room. They also have all these cute little cottages on the property (shown on the link above).

Another romantic place was the Stockport Mill Inn I stayed in the B&O Suite (second from top floor with a balcony overlooking the dam which was fun in the summer but may be not so great in the winter. The tub in the room was amazing. I do have to say that there is NO elevator and you have to shlep baggage up old mill steps (just sayin’).

The Inn at Cedar Falls is also a wonderful get away spot! They have a variety of cottages and cabins. These may be a little more expensive, but they all have cooking facilities so you can save money by cooking and most have romantic wood burning stoves (great for winter).

PM me if you need any details . . .
