    3 of the most romantic getaways in Ohio

    Read on for three of the most romantic Ohio getaways.

    P.S.: the getaways below mostly focus on countryside retreats. If you’re looking for more of an urban escape for your couples trip, check out our guides to hotels in Cincinnati, Ohio and hotels in Cleveland, Ohio.

    1. Logan & Hocking Hills: a scenic landscape dotted with charming inns & hotels

    Scenic and comparatively remote, the Hocking Hills region of Ohio (which, we’ll admit, doesn’t have the most romantic name) is an excellent place for couples to escape the city and embrace nature. Gorgeous hiking trails take travelers through gorges, alongside waterfalls and to cliffside vistas.

    2. Millersburg: the heart of Ohio Amish country

    About 90 minutes south of Cleveland, you’ll find the quaint town of Millersburg, which offers a historic setting and a fun, little downtown area to explore. The town’s outskirts host a variety of accommodations ranging from cozy cabins to luxurious retreats.

    If you’re looking for a tranquil romantic getaway in Ohio, Millersburg is an excellent choice.

    3. Geneva-on-the-Lake: a resort destination on Lake Erie (especially for wine junkies)

    Geneva-on-the-Lake, part of the greater Cleveland metropolitan area, is a great choice for couples seeking a waterfront getaway. Nearby vineyards provide wine-tasting opportunities while the nearby town of Geneva has "The Strip," frequented by urbanites escaping the city. 

    The Lakehouse Inn Retreat and The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake are among the best options for accommodations — both offer pleasant views of Lake Erie — but additional options can be found throughout the area.
