a night at the castle

One of my closest group of girlfriends and I love doing spooky things together around Halloween each year. Andrea, Alissa, Abby and I have spent numerous nights at haunted houses, penitentiaries, and hotels... and we are always looking for new places to explore! We've always loved anything creepy, haunted, or bizarre, so October is our favorite month to get together - and Halloween just happens to fall right around Alissa's birthday. This year, Abby discovered an amazing place online called Landoll's Mohican Castle. It's an amazing estate, fashioned like an 1800's castle, in the middle of the forests of central Ohio. 


 

 

We had such an awesome time - it was quiet and spooky, but luxurious and unique too. We started with a great dinner at the castle's restaurant and I had my first ever Moscow Mule. It was delicious! I think I have found my new favorite drink :)


The birthday girl!
Then, we went back to our cabin for a bit. We had originally wanted to stay in the actual main castle, but it was totally booked (probably because it was the night before Halloween)...so we got a great little private cabin, right across from the main castle, which ended up being perfect.


Once it was dark, we hiked up to explore the 19th century German / English graveyard at the top of the property. Most of the gravestones dated back to the early 1800s! 

Finally, we ended the night with some time around the outdoor fire, then some birthday cake and treats in celebration of Alissa's birthday back at our cabin. Such a perfect girls night!!
