Guest Reviews

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.

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

This is a well-kept secret getaway. I go nearly every year for my birthday. The accommodations are awesome. The people are all wonderful. The hiking trail on the property is magnificent. Jean Michel is the head chef who hosts an all-around memorable experience. The seven-course meal is unforgettable.

- Al West Jr.

We hosted a private dinner in one of the dining rooms, and it was an exceptional experience! The food was outstanding, the service was prompt but not rushed, and the atmosphere was magical. I cannot recommend Glenlaurel highly enough!

- Meggie Giancola

Could not have picked a better place for my wife's 60th b-day surprise celebration with friends. We were looking for something relaxing, quaint and different. Glenlaurel exceeded that by a mile! Great intimate Scottish Inn with cottages and friendly staff. Glad the weather improved to hike the on-site trail and gorge, which are like a mini Hocking Hills without the crowds. Definitely enjoyed social hour at the bar before...See More
