Recently stayed for 3 nights. Beautiful grounds. Our cabin was wonderful with a comfortable bed. The out door hot tub was great after a day of walking. The screened in porch was also great for sitting outdoors to read. Biggest disappointment was they turn off the fireplaces on May 1! That was one of the reasons we selected this Inn. The night were chilly and we were looking forward...See More

Perfect place for a romantic getaway! Great breakfast, awesome cottages in the woods with good trails and fun restaurants in the area. We will be going back year after year. Melissa is a wonderful innkeeper. 100% recommend!

- Jim Janetzke

My wife and I truly enjoyed our anniversary getaway. The Drummond croft was clean and welcoming. We enjoyed the gas fireplace between the bedroom and sitting room and the hot tub. The people were nice, breakfast was great, and the on-premises trails were as good as anything at the parks. Scenic and well-maintained. Thank you so much for a great night away, Glen Laurel! We truly enjoyed ourselves.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Glenlaurel for the first time and we had a fantastic time! We stayed in the Bruce and absolutely loved it. We spent time meeting other couples during the social hour and then had the 6 course beef dinner which was amazing! There are a number of small walking/hiking trails around the Inn as well. We came home and were already talking...See More

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and we loved everything. The room, Campbell, the grounds were beautiful, the food was delicious, and the employees were all very nice. They even left us a little anniversary gift. A perfect little romantic getaway.
