Ah, love is in the air! As Valentine’s Day approaches, our thoughts turn to romance. So this week on Quoth the Raven we are spotlighting one of our favorite romantic activities in the Hocking Hills, and one of the most romantic accommodations at Ravenwood, both perfect for a picturesque romantic getaway!
Is there anything more romantic than a long walk? Whether on the beach, through the woods, or at nearby Ash Cave, taking a stroll with your loved one just can’t be beat. After you’ve finished with your romantic hike, be sure to swing by the Hocking Hills Winery – only a hop, skip, and jump away from Ash Cave itself – for a intimate respite. Warm up with a glass of their Hocking River Red, perfect for those colder days. The winery offers delicious finger foods and charcuterie boards as well as hummus and veggie trays. If you’re feeling a bit hungrier, order in from a local restaurant like the Hungry Buffalo and enjoy onsite while sipping away at some delicious wines!
After enjoying your hike and wine tasting, head back to Ravenwood Castle for the remainder of your romantic getaway. Cinderella’s Coach House is a magical place to stay – with beautiful stained-glass windows, a king-size bed, and a jacuzzi tub, you’ll have a hard time wanting to go elsewhere on the Castle grounds! Visit our game library and take a few back to the room to enjoy some quality time with your loved one – maybe even snag a glass or two of wine in the Raven’s Roost Pub before you settle in for the night.
If you’re searching for a room in the Castle itself, then King Arthur is another favorite. This accommodation takes up one entire tower of the Castle and is adorned in breathtaking artwork. There is a jacuzzi, a custom-built king bed, and a second-story balcony that will make your stay one to remember.
Don’t forget, with any accommodation at the Castle you have the option to choose from our special add-ons that could make the trip even more unforgettable. Whether it’s a couple’s massage in your room or a wine & cheese package that is ready for you upon arrival, there is always a way to surprise that special someone in your life.
We at Ravenwood Castle wish you and your loved ones the best this Valentine’s Day – we hope to see you soon!
