← Back to ‘How to Choose the Best Places to Stay When Traveling’

Ohio lays claim to an impressive array of resorts that have been known to go above and beyond when it comes to catering to guests and their significant other. Lots of plush amenities, nature, history and charm, wine, chocolates — you get the idea. Here’s our rundown on the best tried and tested resorts in Ohio for couples.

Salt Fork Lodge

Nestled in one of the state’s largest state parks, Salt Fork Lodge is a place where natural beauty meets first-class amenities. Most families stay at the main Salt Fork Lodge, but we recommend spicing things up and upgrading to the private lodges that come equipped with fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs, far away from screaming children. Besides from where the magic happens, you’ll find spectacular lake views, an 18-hole championship golf course, boat rentals, and options for sledding and cross-country skiing in the winter.

Great Wolf Lodge

Sandusky’s Great Wolf Lodge is the spot where you and your partner can bring out your inner kids. Who needs rose petals and champagne when you have an indoor water park and loads of activities? At Great Wolf you can make use of the fitness and spa centers, the wine and food pairing seminars, and the dining and shopping areas. As far as your actual room, splurge on the whirlpool fireplace suite that comes with an in-room whirlpool and an entire living room. If the wine and jacuzzis have tickled your fancy, consider heading west to the 5 Most Romantic Getaways in California.

The Inn at Honey Run

The Inn at Honey Run is located in the heart of northeast Ohio’s Amish country, which should help paint a picture as to how remote this place is. Take your loved one here for the lodge-style hotel rooms, the widely-regarded Tarragon restaurant, and the six walking trails that lead through the surrounding forest. Plus, the attractions are just as low-key as the rest of the resort — hang out with a flock of sheep, go bird watching, and check out the site’s array of art installations. What’s more, honey isn’t just the name, the resort harvests tons of different kinds of honey, all which are available for purchase at the gift shop.

Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls

If you’re really looking to get back to your roots — like, way back, to your tree roots — head to Ohio’s Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls. Nuzzle up with bae in a 19th-century cabin surrounded on all sides by the Hawking Hills State Park. Workshops, retreats, yoga, cooking classes, and tons of other activities are all on offer here. A hearty breakfast is completely complementary, and there’s an array of spa packages that will send you home feeling utterly refreshed.

Lofitel Hotel

For all the urbanites, there are tons of romantic options for resorts and hotels in Ohio’s metropolitan cities. Located in the heart of Columbus, the Lofitel is luxurious, and really only appeals to the couples who don’t mind spending a pretty penny on themselves from time to time. The rooms are more like entire apartment flats with kitchens, dining rooms, and bedrooms, not to mention just steps away from Capital square and the Ohio Theater. If you’re looking to do some sightseeing while getting romantic, the Lofitel is a great pick.

Chillax-Inn

The name says it all. We’d be hard-pressed to call this spot in Old Washington a formal resort, but that doesn’t mean its not a fantastic place to unwind for a weekend. It has a nice little bed and breakfast vibe, and there are only a few rooms in the entire residence. There’s also a spa and wellness center, options for breakfast in bed, a garden, a barbecue, and a shared lounge.

The White Oak Inn

The White Oak Inn is an old renovated ranch-style home that feels like a step back into the 18th century. Much like the Chillax-inn, there are only a few rooms here, so the service is top class. Whether your idea of a romantic weekend involves relaxing with a glass of wine on a private balcony or jumping into activities like shopping, sightseeing, antiquing, wine tasting, and even trying to solve a murder mystery, the White Oak Inn has you covered.

Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center

Located right on the shores of Lake Erie, the Maumee Bay Lodge stands as one of the best romantic getaways in the entire Midwest. The main lodge is surrounded by 24 private cottages, four of which are equipped with their own hot tub and many others with their own flat screen TVs. The lodge offers romantic strolls along the waterfront, and is within a stone’s throw from the Toledo Zoo and the Toledo Museum of Art.

The Cincinnatian Hotel

The Cincinnatian makes the cut as another one of the great urban options for romantic getaways in Ohio. Located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, it’s the perfect combination of luxury and relaxation. The Cincinnatian is also an extremely historic building, complete with marble staircases, vintage artwork, and a large atrium. With tons of high-end restaurants all within walking distance, feel free to get dressed up and head out on the town.
