The Secluded Restaurant In Ohio With The Most Magical Surroundings
What makes a restaurant special to you? Is it the food? The atmosphere?
Fortunately, Ohio is home to several restaurants located in
unforgettable settings. But there’s an extra special dining lodge tucked away in Lake Hope State Park that you need to try. The atmosphere is peaceful, the food is exceptionally delicious and the surroundings are breathtaking.
Check it out:
Vinton County is home to one of Ohio's most underrated parks, Lake Hope State Park, as well as an incredible dining lodge.
Surrounded by the Zaleski State Forest and centered around Lake Hope, this park is stunning year-round.
The two-story lodge is a great place to dine when you want to eat somewhere unique. It features casual dining in an unbelievably beautiful setting.
Whether you're hungry after a day of hiking or you just want a new experience, a meal here will hit the spot.
With two stories, plenty of seating and floor-to-ceiling windows, there isn't a bad seat in the house. You'll feel at home here, but you'll also be impressed by the atmosphere.
(It's fine dining without all the stress.)
Weather permitting in the warmer months, you can sit outside on the second-story deck. It features breathtaking views of Lake Hope.
It's such a serene experience, overlooking the lake on sunny day. <3
Even in the colder months, the view is gorgeous...
Lake Hope Lodge is open Monday - Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Friday - Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
...and you'll stay warm and cozy inside the lodge.
The lodge is also open for a brunch buffet on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
When it comes to the food, you won't be disappointed. Lake Hope Lodge serves exceptional all-hickory smoked real pit BBQ, fresh ground burgers, wood fire pizza, craft beer, fine wine and more.
