Romance in Ohio can start with an exploration of the spacious outdoors and end with a rewarding glass of wine in a hot tub at night. Or, tuck into one of these cozy retreats and hide away for the whole weekend! 

We realize that romance doesn’t look the same for every couple. We’ve got recommendations for couples that want quiet, those looking for adventure, and everyone in between looking to plan a romantic vacation. Let’s dive into our list of romantic getaways in Ohio with hot tubs, an essential for the most relaxing experiences! 




Belamere Suites in Perrysburg

The Belamere hotel is adults-only, so guests don’t have to worry about hearing crying, stomping feet, squeals, or those other fun noises that kids sometimes make during overnight stays. Guests booking a suite can relax in their room in luxury, enjoying the private hot tub, 2-person massaging shower, cozy fireplace, and soft robes. There’s even a private, candlelit heated pool in the Grand Royal Swimming Pool Suite!

Weller Haus Bed & Breakfast in Cincinnati

Bed & breakfasts have a certain charm and Weller Haus in Cincinnati is no exception.

Couples will also enjoy the king beds and ensuite fireplaces.

The Pollinator Tiny Cabin in Hocking Hills

Raven’s Retreat manages this cozy cabin where guests can spend quality time enjoying coffee outside while listening to chirping birds and watching for wildlife around the nearby pond. Couples can melt in the sauna and soak in the hot tub right after. Sit around a fire pit and look up for a galaxy of stars- away from the light pollution of the city! The property’s nighttime lighting in the cabin is green – something much more enticing to wildlife!

Things to Do Nearby

We love rustic cabins like the Pollinator for couples who enjoy nature. This intimate cabin has an outdoor grill, sauna, hot tub, and fire ring to enjoy after exploring the walking trails nearby including Hocking Hills State Park, Old Man’s Cave, Conkle’s Hollow, Cedar Falls, and Cantwell Cliffs. Be careful while exploring between May and June though. Whippoorwill birds nest on the ground and lay eggs then.

Glenlaurel Cottages in Hocking Hills

Glenlaurel: A Scottish Inn & Cottages are a luxurious option in the beautiful Hocking Hills region. Each cottage has charming, themed decor that tells a tale about Scottish history. While each cottage is unique, features like a king-size bed, gas fireplace, an outdoor hot tub on a private deck, and large, picturesque windows with views of forests come standard. Any of their cozy cabins are the perfect place for a romantic getaway, our favorite is the Wallace Cottage with its wrought iron headboard and red undertones throughout.

Cherry Ridge Retreat in Hocking Hills

We have already included options for Hocking Hills, but these luxury cabins at Cherry Ridge Retreat are a far less rustic option. Our favorite is the Observatory Luxury Cabin. There is a pool in addition to a beautiful stone hot tub located on a private deck. Guests will also enjoy taking in panoramic views in front of the living room fireplace and stargazing using the Celestron Astromaster EQ Telescope. 

Get close under the rain-maker shower heads in the unique wet bath, make breakfast together in the full kitchen, or take advantage of other modern amenities like an entertainment center and Bluetooth soundbar in the main living area. Guests can also contact the front desk to find out more about in-room dining, in-room massages, charcuterie boards, floral arrangements and chocolates, and other packages and add-ons to make a romantic weekend more special.

Donna’s Premier Lodging Cabins

Donna’s has cabin rentals located in the heart of Amish Country, Ohio. We highly recommend the Romancing the Stone cabin. There isn’t a large, private hot tub, but couples can enjoy the heart-shaped, two-person whirlpool tub while listening to the nearby waterfall splashing over rock formations. You can even see the waterfall from the alcove where the Whirlpool tub is tucked away!

HideAway Country Inn

Located in Bucyrus, Ohio, this cozy retreat is nestled on six acres of farmland. Guests can enjoy the in-room 2-person whirlpool tub or opt for a suite with a private deck and hot tub. HideAway Country Inn also offers several packages that set the mood for romance – just imagine walking into the room and seeing a heart made from rose petals on the bed, chocolate strawberries, and champagne on ice. The Country Oak Suite is our favorite. It has all the privacy of a secluded lake house and love birds can get cozy in front of the huge stone fireplace on the main floor before going up the spiral staircase to the ensuite whirlpool tub.
