The "very romantic" fireplaces and "comfortable accommodations" make this inn a "nice little getaway." --Raves from LivingSocial Members
For a humble town of 5,000, Chardon has a lot going for it. Thirty miles from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in downtown Cleveland, it's also mere minutes from the antiquated charm of northeast Ohio's Amish communities. Then there's wine country: Within 20 minutes of Chardon lie no fewer than a dozen vineyards and tasting rooms. And everyone knows that small-town America is home to the country's best antique shops. Chardon is no exception, and Antiques on the Square proves it, featuring 20 dealers over two floors.
Just south of downtown Chardon, Bass Lake Taverne & Inn is tucked away in a country setting of forest and ponds. The romantic accommodations are furnished with contemporary décor, a king bed, a gas fireplace, and an oversize bathtub with Jacuzzi jets. Other amenities include cable TV, a microwave, a refrigerator, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The Taverne--the on-site restaurant appointed in appropriately rustic fashion--serves upscale New America cuisine and some of the best seafood in the region. Try the cedar-plank Atlantic salmon with corn, chile, and fresh dill relish alongside roasted butternut squash, complemented by a cocktail or glass of wine. Don't forget to stop by the inn-adjacent Chardon Lakes Golf Course, a challenging and beautiful course with a classic design. And of course, the area's variety of vineyards is just a short drive away.
