Romantic Southern Ohio River Getaway

You can barely see the river front on the  right hand side
Located along the Ohio River, the historic Lafayette Hotel, built in 1918, has unique architecture. 

Couples enjoy modern-day amenities like cable TV and WiFi, as they sink away to another time in themed rooms with Victorian and riverboat décor. 

Locally, couples can explore the old riverboat town of Marietta and take a ride on the Valley Gem Sternwheeler. 

One of a kind local restaurants, a brew pub, trolley tours and the Fenton Glass Factory are also enjoyable activities in the area.
