Dundee, Ohio, Hotels

Dundee is located in the heart of Tuscarawas County and just 90 minutes from three major Midwest cities -- Cleveland, Columbus and Pittsburgh. Dundee is part of Amish country, and the nation’s largest settlement is nearby. Dundee has just one lodging option inside its city limits, but thanks to the popularity of the Amish community, plenty of hotels sit within a 30-mile radius.

The Sojourner

The Sojourner Lodge and Log Cabin Suites is the only hotel or lodging option in Dundee. Six suites feature amenities like kitchens, living rooms, fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs and large bedrooms. The property has its own fire pit for outdoor lounging. The Sojourner is on 20 acres of land, and it features hiking trails, a lake and courtyards filled with flowerbeds. The Sojourner has a reputation for bird watching, with species that include Canadian geese, green herons and bluebirds.
