If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

Glenlaurel: A Scottish Country Inn

Hocking Hills Escape to Romance

© Becky Linhardt 2012

If you can’t get away to the romantic Scottish Highlands, you might enjoy a bit of romance in the Hocking Hills of Ohio.  The rugged terrain, the wooded landscape, the construction styles, and the village like placement of buildings all add to the charm of a Scottish-style experience. Take time to wander in the rolling meadow that crowns the hilltop entrance – it just might remind you of scenes from Brigadoon.

What’s Special

NEW The Scottish Links at Glenlaurel

Guests can play golf on the replica links-style course that harkens back to the centuries old Scottish courses. The experience will be enhanced by using more traditional golf balls (less distance) and following the rules of golf from earlier eras.


At Glenlaurel a piper calls its guests to dinner on most Saturday nights, the sounds of the bagpipe echoing through the 140-acre property with its manor house style inn and individual crofts.

Natural beauty

You can wander the trails in the beautiful Camusfearna Gorge to the waterfall or admire the scenes outside your windows, maybe spot some deer scampering through the woods.

Privacy and customer service

Soak in the hot-tub on the privacy fenced deck of your croft or snuggle on the sofa in front of the massive stone fireplace inside.  “Guests can arrange for an in-room dinner, if they prefer,” said Kelley Leonard, consultant at the inn. “We can schedule time for guests at the spa and suggest other romance-inspiring add-ons.”

Food, food, glorious food

If you are arriving early enough, I recommend that you enjoy the inn’s manor house dinner.  In the summer breakfast on the inn’s multi-level deck offers guests restful views into Camusfearna Gorge.

Spa services

In a separate building tucked into a wooded glen, a team of spa specialists offer therapeutic spa and wellness services.
