This week Wanda and I stayed at The Premier Carriage House Cottages, located several miles from Berlin, Ohio, on County Road 203. I’ve seen the cottages before but this was the first time we’ve stayed there. There are seven beautiful cottages on the property; we stayed in the number seven unit. As soon as we walked into the cottage we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. This unit is very spacious and has about everything you can imagine. It’s a perfect place for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon stay, to celebrate a special occasion, or just to “get away from it all”.
The main floor of the cottage has a master bedroom with a king size bed, a kitchen with a dining area, a large Jacuzzi tub, and a bathroom with a shower. On the dining room table, we found a small basket of goodies, sweet and salty, and a couple of delicious gourmet cupcakes, which we munched on later in the evening. A bottle of sparkling grape juice was also a very nice touch. The master bedroom is beautifully decorated and furnished with a spacious king size bed which is always our preference. There’s a large flat-screen TV in the bedroom with a plethora of satellite channels to choose from. I must say the Jacuzzi was wonderful; we wouldn’t want to do without one of these when we go on a getaway.
A natural gas fireplace is situated perfectly, near the center on the main floor, in the atrium between the kitchen and bedroom. Just a flick of a switch and the fireplace is lit. It’s the real deal and not just one of those inexpensive un-ventilated units. There’s a small couch placed in front of the fireplace on the kitchen side. Very well done.
When we made our reservation, we were able to choose to have breakfast in the check-in office dining room, or in our cottage. We opted for breakfast in the cottage which consists of a basket filled with a variety of cereal, oatmeal, and some bagels. In the refrigerator we found some yogurt, milk, and fresh orange juice. A more extensive breakfast is available if you opt for the property dining area but we prefer to have breakfast in our cottage. In addition to the main level the cottage has a very cozy loft which is easily accessible via a stairway in the kitchen. We found this to be the perfect place to relax and lounge around. There’s a small couch in the loft, a second large screen TV, plus another fireplace right by the small sofa. The loft adds another dimension to the cottage and even has an elegant full-size pool table. In summary, we would definitely recommend this place. In the summer time the property has a very nice swimming pool for guests. The cottages are set in the quiet countryside on County Road 203 but just minutes from lots of shopping, events, and area attractions.
