Welcome to #QuirkyOhio, our 2017 blog series highlighting Ohio's odd, unusual and downright wacky experiences, places and events. Follow along as we profile some of the quirkiest parts of the state!
When you reserve a room for the night in central Ohio, you probably aren’t planning on staying in a castle. But to our surprise – you can!
Landoll’s Mohican Castle is located deep in the countryside of Ashland County, about six miles outside of Loudonville, Ohio. With elegant architecture and luxurious lodging, the castle definitely qualifies as a quirky place to spend the night.
The castle boasts eleven uniquely designed suites as well as four additional suites in the separate Highland Building. The distinctive feel of each room will have you falling asleep in comfort and waking up feeling like royalty.
In addition to 15 suites, the castle also features an indoor pool with a stainless steel hot tub and sauna, a spa, gym, an 18th-century graveyard and a stunning 360-degree view from the Red Oak Tower.
When you’re finished relaxing and exploring the property, you can always grab a bite to eat at the castle’s restaurant: The Copper Mug Bar & Grille. With locally sourced food and meals made to order, the restaurant promises delicious food for guests – it was even featured on the season finale of Gordon Ramsey’s Hotel Hell.
If you don’t feel like spending the night, you could always participate in the daily castle tour or stop by a live musical performance. The castle also hosts annual Halloween and Christmas Murder Mystery Evenings and regularly invites unique guests like Mary Ann Winkowski, a paranormal investigator and the inspiration behind the TV show, The Ghost Whisperer.
