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.

Inn at Honey Run

Rikki Teeters

We spent this weekend exploring The Inn at Honey Run. This magical Inn is one of Ohio's best hidden gems. The Inn at Honey Run is a boutique resort located in the heart of Amish Country. We spent this weekend enjoying the peace and serenity of this lovely hideaway. Surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes, the Inn features also hiking trails and an open art museum.

Guests can stay in amazing underground "Honeycombs", luxury cottages, or in the beautiful rooms and suites within the Inn. Each room is unique which makes this Ohio resort even more special. Rooms include many complimentary accommodations including homemade Biscotti and bottled water.

The Inn at Honey Run is home to Tarragon Restaurant. They serve award-winning contemporary American cuisine made from fresh local ingredients. We loved that this upscale restaurant was located in our building. On Saturday night we tasted 4 courses - each more delicious than the last. Our favorite dinner dishes were the Chef's Honeycomb (did you know you can eat honeycomb?) and the Foie Gras Risotto!

Our dinner experience was so great that we had to go back for breakfast in the morning.

The restaurant overlooks a beautiful forest which provided entertainment during our meal. We used our "Bird Book" & "Tree Book" to identify the wildlife that greeted us outside of the window during our meal.

The Inn includes several sitting areas with breathtaking views. We spent time listening to the birds, watching the wildlife (including some very sweet local cats), and contemplating the beauty of our state. The Inn is "Adult Only" which we really appreciated due to the peace and quiet it created.

We loved our weekend at The Inn at Honey Run. We are already planning our next trip!
