Nestled in a wooded valley in Ohio's Amish area, The White Oak Inn bed and breakfast offers a comfortable secluded retreat. Ten comfortable guest rooms and two luxurious log-cabin cottages are offered. Some rooms have fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. A full country breakfast is included in the room rate, and dinners and romantic dinner baskets for two can be ordered in advance. Our meals are carefully crafted using fresh local products whenever possible. Gluten-free, vegetarian and other special diets are cheerfully accommodated. There are plenty of recreational activities nearby, whether it's shopping in Ohio's Amish area, doing wine-tastings at local wineries, outdoor activities like canoeing, hiking or zip-lining, or just enjoying the beautiful scenery. During winter months we offer special events such as murder mysteries and dinner theater. The inn is not recommended for children under 12.

A beautiful 1.5 hour drive from Columbus sits this stunningly historic inn. We arrived on a Tuesday evening, knocked at the door and Ian answered immediately. Upon entry, we quickly smelled chocolate chip cookies that must have been fresh out of the oven. Ian showed us to our room- The Walnut and it was quaint and perfect for a quick stay. The king size bed was very comfortable and had the most luxurious sheets - which we learned you can actually purchase sets of. The room had a few small night stands, sitting area, small tv with DVD player and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom was small but had all of the amenities you would need - including grapefruit scented hand soap. Cell phone service was very spotty but the inn does have free WiFi so that helped a bit. This didn’t matter to us as we quickly made the jaunt into town to grab a bottle of wine for dinner (you can bring your own and Ian/Yvonne will gladly serve at dinner) and headed back to enjoy the most delicious meal. All guests met in the formal living room just prior to dinner service and were presented the menu by Ian. We each chose our entree and took our seats for dinner. This four course meal far exceeded any expectations we had prior to our stay. After wine/drink service, we enjoyed bread and zucchini and curry soup. It was light, refreshing and the flavor of the curry was not overpowering. The salad was a spring mix with candied pecans, feta, apples, cranberries and a vinaigrette that was a beautiful addition. For our main course, we both opted to have the salmon with pineapple salsa, served with potatoes and asparagus/carrots. Lastly, the dessert was a homemade chocolate and apricot torte. After dinner, Ian and Yvonne joined us at the table to share history of the inn and swap stories. This was unexpected, but kind and so welcomed. Yvonne and Ian are the most gracious hosts and their animals were a joy to have around. We awoke to the smell of Yvonne making Breakfast the next morning. As we prepared to check out, we sat down with the other guests for the meal. A fruit plate to start with homemade banana date muffins (still warm in the basket) and a split plate of a Spanish torte and almond croissant French toast. We certainly did not go hungry. Do not pass up this off the beaten path destination. Ian and Yvonne make you feel as though you are at home. It would be great for couples visiting Amish country or a weekend girls shopping trip. And because the accommodations are plentiful with the cabins and guest house, this could easily host wedding guests or a bridal party. Don’t forget to grab one of Yvonne’s recipe books on your way out! A big thank you to the both of them for making this such an enjoyable stay.

Thank you so much for the lovely and detailed review! We like to describe coming to our inn as escaping to the middle of everywhere! We're working on getting that cell service upgraded and hope to have good news on that front soon.

We enjoyed two nights on our drive for the holidays. The first night was in the Willow Room, and the second in the Dogwood. Yvonne and Ian are welcoming and kind. We traveled with our dog, and stayed in the out building located near the main house. There was ample parking, and both rooms were plenty big for us. Both rooms were well appointed and very clean. We had dinners and breakfast in the main house and enjoyed meeting other guests. I would stay again and recommend it to others.

Just had 4 wonderful days at the White Oak Inn for our anniversary. It was wonderful. The Inn keepers are awesome people. The food is unbelievable it is that good. I would rate it higher than a five if I could. Its great for a couples getaway or a girlfriends trip. Nice place for relaxing or if you want to visit there is wine and cheese places,Amish country.

Thank you so much. There seem to be so many new places opening up all around us with interesting things for our guests to see and do. Wineries and cheese places are always popular, but we've also got a couple of distilleries in the area, some new breweries and some excellent new restaurants in the area.

Rain so we couldn't bike the Kokosing Path. Spent our day in Amish country exploring, visiting wineries. Second stay at White Oak and enjoyed dinner of chicken or salmon. Appetizer, salad, bread and dessert. Nice conversation with Yvonne during dinner. Breakfast a real treat, banana split french toast or Spanish torta. Date/applesauce muffins and juice. Quiet, peaceful, comfortable rooms.

So sorry you weren't able to enjoy cycling, but perhaps next time! Glad that you found other fun activities for the rainy day. There are quite a few wineries, brew pubs and distilleries in the area to enjoy, as well as places to do cheese tastings and buy cheese, trail bologna and other treats to enjoy with those wines!

We thoroughly our recent stay at the White Oak Inn. Ian and Yvonne, the owners, are delightful, gracious hosts. Yvonne is a fabulous cook and they happily accommodated all of my dietary restrictions. Each breakfast dish was freshly prepared, and each was outstanding even despite allergy-free adjustments to recipes. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful surroundings, good conversation, and the fact that the Inn is pet-friendly. We will definitely visit again if was are back in the area!
