Bourbon Ridge Retreat Hocking Hills

Rikki Teeters

Hocking Hills is one of the most beautiful regions in Ohio. Filled with rolling hills, beautiful trees, and natural landmarks, this local area has become one of our favorites in Ohio. We just returned from our getaway to Bourbon Ridge Retreat in Logan, Ohio, at the heart of the Hocking Hills area. This serene property is tucked peacefully away in the hills and includes 202 acres featuring hiking trails, 5,000+ fruit trees, beautiful wild flowers, a suspension bridge, picnic areas, and a private pond.

We stayed at The Woodford cabin, one of several at Bourbon Ridge Retreat, and it was a dream come true. Our cabin included a fully equipped deluxe kitchen, a private pool (which turned into a hot-tub at night), a theater room, and the most beautiful shower we have ever seen. After spending our days exploring Hocking Hills, it was so nice to come home to a perfect hideaway to relax between adventures.

The Mohicans: Our Ohio Honeymoon

Rikki Teeters

We just returned from our dream honeymoon... in Ohio. Seriously. We searched far and wide to find the perfect honeymoon destination. Little did we know that we would end up finding it in Ohio - our beloved home state. We had always heard great things about "The Mohicans" but we had never had the opportunity to stay and explore. Early in our Ohio Explored days, we discovered The Mohicans Grand Barn & Wedding Center and instantly fell in love with their magical treehouses and luxury cabins. When the opportunity to stay in the namesake cabin The Mohican came about, we had to visit!

So, first we got married in Cincinnati, Ohio!

Then we left for our honeymoon in paradise. The day after our wedding weekend, we loaded up the Ohio Explored car and headed to Northern Central Ohio.

After a 3.5 hour road-trip from Cincinnati to Glenmont, we made it to "The Mohicans". Our beautiful cabin called The Mohican perched high above the Mohican Valley which provided the most beautiful view. It was so peaceful that the birds chirping outside each morning were our only wake-up call.

Our morning view each day from the cabin porch was simply breathtaking.

Kevin, the owner of our cabin, kindly gave us a tour of his beautiful handmade treehouses nearby. They were absolutely magical.

We also got a tour of the Grand Barn & Wedding Center at "The Mohicans". Let's just say we wish we could have our wedding again just so we could book this venue. It is definitely the prettiest wedding venue in Ohio.

We decided to venture out to explore the surrounding areas. We found Landoll's Mohican Castle closeby, where we enjoyed a delicious late lunch under the trees. We were very impressed with the service, the kind waiters, the locally sourced menu, and the delcious fries.

Exploring is our favorite hobby, so of course we spent most of our time adventuring around the local area. There is so much to do around The Mohicans! We found the cutest Amish market filled with locally made foods including fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheese! They offered fresh made food to-go and also had a sit down area for customers to eat in-house.

We spent a lot of time relaxing in and around our cabin. We built campfires, made s'mores, and danced under the moonlight. It was truly a magical honeymoon.
