Wishmaker House is a wonderful b&b. The home is a lovely, beautifully updated mansion, originally a doctor's home, with 6-7 rooms (all with private bathrooms), a nice restaurant (serving the best pork chops you've ever tasted), a bar with a sweet waif of a bartender, outside veranda with soft live music, second floor balconies with chairs & tables, wine tasting for the wines made on-premises, and numerous private seating areas. Owned & operated by a pleasant & welcoming young couple, Jennifer & her husband, the staff is friendly, the rooms are squeaky clean, the beds are super comfy, and the overall experience is ultra quality. The breakfast was a three-course meal including cut fruits, bakery breads, and a ham & potato egg bake made in-house. This is a really nice place and the town of Bellville is reminiscent of the simpler times of the 1950s; quiet, safe, peaceful; and the surrounding area is comprised of beautiful farms, lakes, & forest. Highly recommended; we will surely return.

I have not stayed at a bed & breakfast for many (many) years, and was a bit hesitant about this reservation. Only because my first and only experience many years back in Kentucky was "fair". I found the Wishmaker House in a web search of the local area and the photos were amazing. But, the Wishmaker House is SO much more than their photos can share! The house is beautiful, the room comfortable and the food and staff amazing! The owners-Jennifer and Donnie, are onsite and make time to visit with you, the staff is friendly and social and genuinely interested in your experience being a great one. During my 4 days there I met many of the dining staff, the restaurant manager-Rachelle who is a real gem. And, Kathryn-who seems to do many things always with a smile. The staff truly seems to enjoy being there. And, I met several locals who come to dinner there several times a month. The Wishmaker House is a grand and historic house in a small town. This historic house has a beautiful stair case leading to the rooms on the second floor. However, please note, there is one room on the first floor which is handicap accessible. The daily breakfast is home cooked, and served fresh and hot. During my stay I was treated to such treats as french toast, a wonderful veggie quiche, and more. Juice and fresh fruit and muffins or another sweet treat each morning. It was wonderful. And, I truly enjoyed it! So much, I will be returning very soon.

We try to stay in a different room each time we stay here. Checkin was easy and the room very comfortable. Quiet and relaxing. We like their little bar area so you can get a glass of wine or a beer before going out. Breakfast in am took a long time and was so so. French toast took at least a 1/2 hour. Usually we are offered fresh fruit on a side table, none there today. No coffee cups by the coffee urn so we waited to be served. Overall a lovely visit.

My husband decided to take me away for my birthday weekend so we could relax during this busy time of year. We went to Bellville, OH and stayed at the prettiest B&B in Ohio — Wishmaker House! It a renovated older home that even has a winery in the lower level where they bottle their own wines. The rooms were spacious with comfortable designer bedding & luxurious baths (ours had a deep soaking tub that definitely helped with relaxing). There’s also a restaurant which is open to the public, too. Breakfast was fabulous with a spinach & asparagus soufflé with fresh sweet breads and rolls. Snacks, pop, water, tea, & coffee are available 24/7 for guests to help themselves. The innkeepers are super friendly and even accomodatated my husband’s birthday request to have wine, flowers, & truffles in our room when we arrived We will definitely go back!
