Moments to Remember

My favorite parts of Glen Laurel...the front door. Love the door.

The stained glass and Scottish plaids throughout.

Being early arrivals we waited for our room by this cozy fireplace while sipping hot chocolate and reading a book. Love the tea box below.

The view from my reading spot. The dining room sits in the room behind where we had many wonderful meals. Loved the scones in the morning that we had with our breakfast. Loved the six course dinners by candlelight. Many people we talked to were staying in the cottages and crofts. We had a room in the manor house where these pictures are from. It was so nice with the weather to be right in the house and just walk down the hall to dinner.

The township is dry so you need to bring your own wine which is fine with me, I get to have my favorite! We enjoyed wine and cheese before dinner. Celtic music plays throughout the inn ( you can even turn it on in your room!) and it changes to bagpipers to call you to dinner.

Even though only 35 minutes from home, I felt like I really got away for two days. We loved hiking the gorge and spending the rainy afternoon reading in our room. The huge jet tub was the perfect place for a glass of wine and my book, ahhh. We definitely have many wonderful memories and will be going back again!

With a little bit of work (or maybe a LOT) I'll bet you could have a front door on your house like that one! Looks like a really nice place. I didn't know there were any "dry" towns in Ohio!

Margot, I've been showing Todd your pictures. We're thinking of a nice, little get-away in May for our anniversary and this seems perfect! Thanks for the links, we'll be looking into it!
