The owners of award-winning Garden Gate Get-A-Way B&B have a new lodging choice as of October 2009. We have opened two romantic, luxury cottage rentals on the same property as the bed and breakfast.
Our cottages in Ohio are perfect for honeymoons and romantic weekend getaways. Lose yourself in luxury with a peninsula fireplace, Roman-style Jacuzzi tub, vaulted ceilings, Amish-made queen bed with pillow-soft mattress and 600 thread-count, cotton-sateen sheets, private bath with luxury amenities and soft, sumptuous bathrobes, a kitchenette with Amish-made cabinets, mini microwave and refrigerator, plus a 23-foot porch with a view of the field of horses next door. The 'icing on the cake' is our location. We are situated on a rolling hill, surrounded by Amish neighbors in a peaceful, relaxing setting and yet we are close to dining, attractions, and shopping.
Start your romantic rendezvous with a welcome cheese & cracker plate that includes locally made cheeses, a chilled bottle of sparkling juice, and a chocolate sampler from Coblentz Chocolate Company.
Cottage guests can sit on the private porch, sip wine, and view the field of horses next door. An outdoor privacy shade will block the view of the neighboring cottage offering a more intimate experience. You are invited to the evening campfire on the property that is also attended by bed and breakfast guests. Bring your own beverage and watch the stars come out.
We deliver a homemade breakfast with eggs, coffeecake, muffins, and fruit. to your cottage each morning. In addition we'll have bottled orange juice, plus we have stocked your cupboards with Wolfgang Puck coffee, assorted Bigelow teas, and hot chocolate that you can make. You may eat on the porch or relax on the leather counter stools at your kitchenette.
It is our wish that you have a most memorable stay in Amish Country. Your innkeepers live on the same property and are on-call 24/7 to insure that any questions or special services that you may request can be met. We can make fine dining reservations, set up couple massages in your cottage, arrange for special occasion packages, set up a horse-drawn sleigh ride, etc.
