When visiting Ohio's newest scenic river, the Mohican River, take a little time to find Landoll's Mohican Castle and you might just decide to spend the night and you'll be treated like royalty without all the publicity.
This secluded medieval-style castle also boasts a fine dining restaurant. The estate features 30 miles of trails, pool and fitness center. Landoll's Mohican Castle is a towered, gabbled wood and stone monument.
The castle is the creation of one man, Jim Landoll. Landoll had always been fascinated with castles. He wanted a castle of his own. After selling his publishing business he built Landoll's Mohican Castle in 2002 and he hand-painted every suite with a unique design. All of the woodwork used in the Castle came from a local lumber mill.
Enjoy the stately majesty of times past in a luxurious castle fit for the kings and queens in all of us. Experience the romance of lazy afternoons, intimate fireside conversation, continental breakfasts and morning walks through private forestland in perfect solitude. Located 1.5 hours northeast of Columbus, deep in the heartland of Mohican Country, the 1,100 acre estate offers unprecedented luxury in its lodging and seclusion.
The castle furnishings are far from medieval; rooms boast hand-carved four poster mahogany beds, wrought iron and stone gas fireplaces. One room in Landoll's Mohican Castle is a 3 level room which includes its own 50 foot tower.
The new Copper Mug Bar and Grille is the result of Landoll's Mohican Castle Restaurant being featured as the season finale of Gordon Ramsay's Hotel Hell. For anyone not familiar with the program, Gordon Ramsay and a team of often over 100 people descend upon a hotel that has agreed beforehand, to be featured as a hotel that Gordon Ramsay will go to great lengths to prove, in the hotel's current condition, to fit the show's title, and then he and his crew will make improvements and recommendations to the owners.
The good news is that the Landoll owners took Ramsay's advice to heart and made dramatic changes to the hotel and the restaurant. Today, the Copper Mug Bar and Grille is at the heart of the Castle's mystique.
The Castle’s Event Center is optimal for conferences, wedding receptions, banquets and parties for up to 250 guests. Large floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outdoors in. A cathedral ceiling, dance floor, kitchen, and a large outdoor patio allow you to create your perfect event any time of year.
