Best Weekend Getaway 

Lake Hope State Park

For around 50 bucks a night, you get a newly renovated cottage that sleeps six, located in one of Ohio's most secluded (and oldest) state parks, a forested area that was the site of a vast iron-processing furnace at the turn of the 20th century. Built to last in the 1930s, the rustic Iron Furnace or Forest cottages have wood-burning stone fireplaces and wood ceilings and floors, plus all the modern amenities, including flush toilets, heat, air conditioning, and a fully equipped kitchen. Linens are provided. Activities include hiking, canoeing, and swimming. Ohio University, Hocking Hills, and Indian burial mounds are nearby. Lake Hope is about three and a half hours from Cleveland.
