The Mohican Castle in Loudonville was originally constructed in 1996 by Jim Landoll whose passion project was to convert the old barn on his property into a castle. He opened it as a hotel with his wife, Marta, in 2002. It likely would have closed for good after a fire in 2008 destroyed the hotel restaurant, if not for Gordon Ramsey's intervention, when he featured the Mohican castle on his show, “Hotel Hell.” Since then the castle has made a complete turnaround and is thriving more than it has since its original opening.
This massive castle in Sidney, Ohio, has been a historic landmark for over 100 years. It's constructed entirely of 18-inch thick limestone bricks, and overlooks historic downtown Sidney, two acres of lawn, gardens and century-old Oak trees. Complete with a ballroom, banquet hall, and turret rooms, the Great Stone Castle Resort is great for weddings, receptions, parties, romantic getaways and more.
The Barn Bed Inn is on the estate of a 90-acre farm built by pioneer farmer, Fred Gehrig, who cultivated a career and a community around a natural water spring that still serves the house with water to this day. The farm has comfortable amenities, Amish cuisine, free Wi-Fi, and an epic and fascinating history, much of which recovered by John Schlabach, a 101-year-old man who lived near the estate all his life.
Why should your hotel just be a stop on the way to your vacation? Why not make your hotel one of the highlights? The Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio, is home to a massive 84-degree indoor water park featuring raft rides, water slides, a lazy river, and more.
