This week’s blog post – written by former Assistant Innkeeper Abby Kutscher – shines the Room Spotlight on one of our castle accommodations, Shakespeare’s Suite.
Have you ever played the word-association game? In my family, it was a popular one for long car rides. One person says a word and then the next person says the first word to come to mind and so on and so forth. For example: Castles. England. Shakespeare!
The Shakespeare Suite at Ravenwood Castle is a spacious first-floor, handicap accessible suite. Adorned in reds and golds, the suite gives one the feeling of regal sophistication befitting William Shakespeare himself.
Being that Shakespeare is widely recognized as the King of Verse, it seems only appropriate that the room is outfitted with a grandly carved, King size bed. The room also boasts a bust of the great playwright, as well as a collection of his works.
And where better to read some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays than in the sitting area before a snug gas fireplace? Made up of a table, two antique chairs, and an antique sofa, the sitting area is also a great place to enjoy a board game or to chat with loved ones over a delicious craft beer. If you would rather socialize in the common areas, the Shakespeare Suite is only steps away from the Great Hall, the Library, and the Raven’s Roost Pub!
After a full day of revelry, whether it be hiking in Hocking Hills or hanging out around the castle, unwind with a hot soak in the large bathtub or with a glass of wine on the outside porch overlooking the castle’s herb garden.
The only question left to ask yourself is to stay, or not to stay in the Shakespeare Suite of Ravenwood Castle?!
