Though I couldn’t quite keep my hard hat on, I was able to get some great photos from the property. Walking into the main lobby, I was immediately greeted with an unprecedented accent wall behind the front desk; an American flag made of wooden pallets and special lighting.
What a welcoming entry! From the front desks, rich wood flooring and wall paneling, to the wall of windows, strung lights across the ceiling, it was very hard to not take a moment to take in every detail.
As I progressed through the hotel, one creative feature, was the tiered seating steps that wrapped around the backside of the bar. Guests can sit and relax or plug-in to finish out their day. The entire rear side of the building looks out on beautiful green space and a water fountain.
The restaurant is a trendy concept with pristine tiled floors and walls, and an open counter to the exposed kitchen. As we continued, we made our way to the event space. A long-curved hallway lined by lit lanterns was an immediate “feel good” moment, I just loved those lanterns! Details throughout the event space were unexpected and unique. Light fixtures, artwork, wall paneling all gave way to each room’s individual concept.
I obviously could not stay the night, but I did get to see an almost finished guest room. Before we entered, I could not help but to notice that the room numbers were etched into the wood floor panel below each door; interesting! As I entered the room, there was a lantern light fixture and a life preserver above a wood paneled closet area.
Now, the bathroom is what dreams are made of. For those of you who know me, you understand that I live for any mixture of neutrals (in my closet, in my home, etc.), the unforgettable black and white tiled floor and wall is simply a perfect fit for the bathroom (but that’s just my two-cents). Ok, ok, let’s move into the bedroom. The most notable items in the bedroom are certainly the aqua ultra-modern night stands and an accent curtain portraying a water color image of a dragon fly (I bet you weren’t expecting that!).
If I had to encapsulate my overall feelings of this lake house inspired property in one word, it would be: unexpected. Who would have thought that we would have a hotel paying homage to the waterways of central Ohio? (I had not even an inkling of the waterways or lakes that surrounded the area.)
Next week we are going to take time to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the pristine Victorian Village Guest House!
Until next time,
