We stayed at Glen Laurel with our friends on December 11 in the MacDougal Croft as we experienced the Dickens dinner. We truly enjoyed our stay and our quit quant croft with deer and birds a plenty. The Dickens dinner was absolutely my favorite as we had a 5 corurse meal with story telling by the General Manager between each course. As I closed my eyes I was transformed back into the days of Scrooge and I eagerly anticipated the next pause in courses for the story to continue. Our meal was exquisite mine with a main course of duck breast and my wife with a main course of Pork Tenderloin.
The MacDougal Croft was decorated very keenly as you transformed from South Eastern Ohio to Scotland. The see-through fireplace, the warm and cozy robes and the walk in shower for two was built for romance and comfort.
The staff was friendly and inviting from the desk clerk to our wait staff to the Executive Chef who visited each table to finally our short and interesting conversation with the Inn Keeper and his wife in the Pub prior to dinner and during breakfast.
Bring your own spirits as they do not serve alcohol but will gladly serve what you bring.
You won't be disappointed!
