Heading home

A travel blog entry by 3beansabroad

We stopped back through Central Ohio to drop off the camper, have a night in our favorite hotel (we always stay at the Cherry Valley Lodge when we visit if we are not with relatives) and scrub the smell of wood smoke off our bodies. As a bonus, we spent an evening splashing around the Coco Key Water Resort, getting takeout from City Barbecue and …

We got to Canal Winchester last night. We are staying at Jarrod's dad's house. Visiting Grandpap, Grandma Carol and Ben. Not wanting to spend Porters birthday on the road we spent the day at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Porter had a great day starting with a present first thing (camera) and French toast. The zoo was amazing. Hot and exhausting, but awesome!! Had a great time celebrating Porters birthday with Grandpap, Grandma Carol and ...

Breakfast in Columbus

... a quick search led to a place which no longer existed. So yeah that worked out well. We only briefly entered an area which appeared to be bordering the "inner city" so that we did get a quick glimpse of some cultural alleys and buildings. Moral of the story : when in doubt Frisch's will always suffice. Next up ...

... I suppose. Also needing to figure out where to put everything on the bike. And how to keep things separated so I don't attract any bears. There's paracord for hanging the bag up high, but still don't want to get stuff scented either.  Really good guide to the Trans Labrador Highway ...

    The gem of central Ohio's hotels

    After several days in a camper the amenities of the Cherry Valley Lodge were even more greatly appreciated. The staff was professional and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. The on-site water park was a huge hit with the kids. I relaxed with a drink at the bar while I watched them frolic on all the rides having a blast. I didn't eat on site, so I can't comment on the food, but if you stay here, make sure you visit the courtyard in the central of the hotel. It's lovely. You can eat there or just enjoy the flowers, water and ducks.

    Loved this place.


    The grounds of this hotel are just lovely with flowers, gardens,

    Construction site


    terrible - a construction site, no outdoor pool even though it's now advertised as Cherry Lodge Water Resort! Digger right outside our room, staff tried to mislead us as to what noise was, no one told us of the construction when we booked...very unhappy.

    Very disappointing


    We have just come home from our annual trip to Newark for the Heisey Glass convention. We have stayed at the Cherry Valley every year but one since the opening and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. However, this year was very disappointing. Our room was located near the major construction area, which was okay. However, the parking was awful. When we arrived, there was parking right by the entrace to our room. We left to go into town and when we returned even those parking spots were no longer available. On Saturday, It was impossible to get anywhere near our room. There was a wedding that took all the parking, as well as all the lobby area for the reception. Had I known that there would be so much inconvenience, I would never have sayed there. Our friends, also staying here, didn't even get consistent service in their room. The bed wasn't even made. I don't think that the company really considered the comfort of their paying guests. They need to reevaluate their priorities. I will say that the restaurant was excellent. It is pretty sad when the only positive point to take home with you is that you had a very personable young person serving you excellent food. Next year's convention will probably be spent in another facility, and I brought business for three rooms.

    Great Cozy Experience


    Stayed here one night in December 2005. Very comfortable and cozy place with nice rooms. I was also very pleased with the price considering it was the holiday season.

    I would recommend anyone to stay here at anytime. Will stay at again if in the area.



    My family (mom, dad, 2 young kids) spent a recent weekend at the Cherry Valley Lodge and had a great time. The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating, the property was beautiful, and the room was comfortable and well appointed. Although the lodge has plenty for kids to do, it is not a kid-centered hotel, so couples wishing for privacy and quiet should find it easy to relax and enjoy themselves too.

    Poor customer service


    My husband was there on a business trip in Feb of 2005. The company that he was there for picked up the tab. Cherry Valley charged my husbands charge card almost $300.00. I have e-mailed Cherry Valley three times about this charge and they have not gotten back to me yet. FRAUD BILLING There was no room service,bar tap or stolen towels.

    Great Time, Service


    We stayed here when we brought our son to Denison University. I was very impressed by the grounds and bldg. The rooms were big, my only issue was with the one tv to be rotated between areas. In the evening we sat outside the lobby in the courtyard. It was so peaceful with waitress service being offered it was perfect. If you want an inside room (overlooking the pond/courtyard you must ask and pay additional) The Texas Roadhouse restaurant is close and a great buy with kids.

    Less than perfect


    Just returned from our weekend at the lodge.We were attending a wedding that had its reception there and the rehersal dinner. Upon check in was given a room over that trash area. Okay they are full. The night of the wedding 10 of the wedding party stayed all night and upon check in were told there were no rooms even though they had given a credit card to gaurentee them. After much haggling they were given the rooms. My brother had lost is eye glasses and when checking out left our local phone number if and when they turned up. After hours called back and were told they were in the ballroom and would probably throw them out. When checking out the person next to me had a rate that was 30 dollars cheaper and we were told the block for the wedding was the cheapest rate. Oh well won't be back there.

    A wonderland in Ohio


    I have used the Cherry Valley Lodge for both business retreats/meetings and for personal get-aways. What a treasure of a place so close to our home. It is really a peaceful, beautiful wonderland--especially in the winter. Food is wonderful, whether you are having banquet food for a meeting or dining in the restaurant. It is our favorite January get-away.

    A cozy little lodge


    What a beautiful getaway so close to home! We stayed at CVL for New Year's Eve. We were just overwhelmed by the absolute beauty of this lodge. We walked all over the lodge, and I do not recall seeing or smelling anything that should not have been. Our room was a king room with a sofa sleeper for the kids. The bathroom was quite possibly the largest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel. It even made up for the fact that the room itself was not terribly large. Friends of ours stayed in a queen/queen room, and the room was large, but the bathroom was standard issue. I would choose the big bathroom with the big (two person) tub. I think if I would not have had a room on the courtyard side of the hotel, I would not have been nearly as happy. But, as it was, we were in a ground level room and our patio was directly off a courtyard with a pond. Since we were there on New Year's Eve, it was of course noisy. We did not purchase the dinner package, and I think it was a good choice. There were people EVERYWHERE eating dinner, and they seemed to be crammed together. We did have breakfast the next morning, and it was great food. Then we found a little area to sit in and watch New Year's Day bowl games. The kids were able to check out games at the front desk, so they didn't grumble too loudly about the football. We enjoyed this lodge so much, my husband and I are planning to visit for our upcoming 10th anniversary.
