My fiance will be 25 when our wedding rolls around July 2018. He is finishing a 3-year grad program, and I’ve been working. I make a nice living, but I also have a lot of bills (when have lived on your own for a few years it’s not like you are aflush with cash), and we are forking out some money for the wedding. That being said, because we are young and starting our careers, we really do not have any money for a traditional honeymoon. Traveling long-distance or anything luxurious is out of the question.
Our wedding will be in Ohio and I am looking into renting a cabin in Hawking Hills for a honeymoon, as this seems very inexpensive. I have been there once and enjoyed it a few years ago. Has anyone had a honeymoon here? Did they enjoy it? The only downside is that there does not seem like there is a lot to do, other than hang out in the cabin in hike. Thoughts?

Sounds awesome to me! But I love hiking. It’s beautiful there. They also have things like ziplining and a winery that could keep you busy. Or if you’re really worried, you could drive a few more hours to the Smokies and have plenty to do.

- Wedding: September 2005 - A Castle
I think it can be whatever you make it. There’s a ton of outdoorsy stuff to do there in the summer. I would also check out Ravenwood Castle! We were supposed to go there after we got married (not for honeymoon; just to go), but never made it due to my husband’s work schedule.

My Fiance is from Ohio and we visited there for a few nights when meeting his family. It is very inexpensive roughly $100/night for a two bedroom cabin. There are various hiking trails, but nothing too challenging. In my opinion, it’s a nice place to visit, but not really for a honeymoon.

withluv: I definitely hear what you are saying, but at this point it’s what we can afford.
dracarys: I have stayed at Ravenwood Castle! It is super fun! I’d rather have our own cabin for the honeymoon though.

Understandable, it is beautiful. I’ll see if my Fiance has any suggestions within the same price range. At the end of the day being together is all that matters. ❤

I love Hocking Hills! My family used to take annual trips there when I was growing up. If you’re outdoorsy, I can definitely see that being a beautiful place to relax and unwind. If you can swing a nicer cabin with a hot tub and a fireplace and some other cozy amenities, I think it would be great.

HH is certainly remote, but the hiking is great. We went for an anniversary trip last year and honestly couldn’t wait to get back to our cabin and hot tub when we were out. That’s why we didn’t see much else than the 2 hiking locations we visited. Check out Buckeye Cabins, esp. the Hawaiian. Really nice and very romantic.
