What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Experience an exurban oasis in the heart of Ohio’s great Western Reserve. Located in Aurora, Ohio, Walden offers a world-class travel destination and an innovative spa-lifestyle community. Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s credo for happiness in daily living, “simplify, simplify,” Walden is composed of an award winning Aurora Ohio inn, luxurious spa, residential community, Om Studio Yoga and golf club.
Whether you are visiting for the day at the renowned Spa Walden, lodging a few nights in the celebrated, highly-rated Inn Walden, a luxurious Ohio wedding venue, or investing in one of our architecturally innovative custom-tailored homes for an incomparable lifestyle, Walden’s Grassroots Luxury provides the perfect backdrop for thoughtful and mindful repose. In 1799, the founders of the Western Reserve were lured to the area in search of a natural sanctuary, and today’s postmodern pioneers will discover an authentic wonderland where soft and simple architecture commingles with pastures, lakes, streams and meadows to preserve the land’s pristine beauty. Here, you’ll find room enough to escape the trappings of modern life and enough privacy to be yourself. Here, you’ll be lavished with genuine hospitality and nurtured by mindful and thoughtful service. Here, you’ll be welcomed for who you are and what you think. Here, you’ll discover your Walden.
