Crofts

HOCKING HILLS ACCOMMODATIONS

Enjoy the luxurious and private Hocking Hills chalets/crofts at Glenlaurel.

A croft is a smaller version of a cottage. A croft is about 450 square feet whereas a cottage is about 700 square feet.  In Scotland, the word “croft” is used to describe a small farmstead with a house, a barn, and a small paddock or fenced barnyard.  We use the term to distinguish a smaller housing unit from one of our larger housing units. Glenlaurel has four East Crofts on Thistle Ridge overlooking the Camusfearna Gorge, and three West Crofts in the Hamlet overlooking Bannock Burn Ravine.

East Crofts
The four East Crofts are a five-minute walk from the Manor House with parking near the front croft door. Each croft has a kitchenette, living room, queen bed, gas log fireplace, screened porch, and hot tub on a private deck overlooking Camusfearna Gorge. 

West Crofts
In the West Crofts, each croft contains one spacious room with a king sized bed overlooking a massive stone fireplace. An entertainment center for playing DVDs or videos stands in the corner. Cozy, fireside chairs or loveseats invite quiet conversation by a warm, glowing fire. There’s a small kitchenette area, a spacious bathroom with a shower for two, and a large private deck with a hot tub and lounge chairs.
