“Private and secluded, just what we were looking for.”
Reviewed April 5, 2011

This inn was just minute away from great restaurants and entertainment, yet we felt it was also very private and secluded. This was the perfect place to spend our 10th anniversary. Thanks Jeff and Bobbi

I have taken advantage of the trip advisor forums for years, but have not written a review until now. I am so glad that I went with my gut feeling and booked Welsh Hills B and B for our stay in Granville. A beautiful property with a lovely home and very welcoming home owners.

My family, 2 teens, stayed for one night, as we were doing a college visit at Denison. The room set up for a family was great. The rooms are immaculate and large with flat screens. We had a 2nd floor private "wing" with a king room and a queen room across the hall(Bobbi set up a 2nd bed in the queen room). Each room had it's own granite sink area, and in the middle was the shared bath and toilet area. I think there is another room somewhere else in the house with a private bath.

The common area was so pretty, with the fireplace on, and the views of the hills. Bobbi offered us wine/drinks and cookies when we arrived and the breakfast was yummy and enjoyed in the sun room. I know the kids would have loved to go swimming, but it was a little early in the season. Bobbi also offered that we use the pool house to hang out. It had a large flat screen. My husband and son enjoyed that space as well. Well, there it is, my first review. If my daughter ends up at Denison, we WILL be back.

It was great having you all stay with us this past week at the Inn. It was a pleasure. Best of luck to your daughter in her college selection process - it sounds like she has some excellent choices that she's looking at. Denison is a wonderful university and Granville is just a terrific community to enjoy that college experience. We hope to see you and your family back as proud "Big Red" parents!

I just returned home, but I am already looking forward to our next visit. We celebrated my birthday there this past weekend, and it was an amazing time. We wanted to go somewhere that was relatively close but still felt like a proper getaway. Although a few hours away from home, we felt like we were worlds away.

We drove on a late Friday afternoon, and the scenery around Granville is beautiful. There had been some snow that week, so the fields, trees, and homes were covered with a white blanket. It felt so peaceful as we made our way up the driveway, past the paddock and up to their gorgeous home on top of the hill. We were impressed before we stepped inside the house.

The beauty of the outside of the home is matched by the beauty inside the home. Every room is filled with original artwork and collectibles. I found myself admiring paintings on every wall. But none of it is overwhelming. There's just the right amount of balance to allow your eyes to wander and discover something new in each room but not feel as though the place is cluttered. The home is clearly lovingly decorated.

The innkeepers, Bobbie and Jeff Noe, are fantastic hosts. What impresses me is the attention to detail and the little things they did to make our visit more pleasant - ice water waiting for us in our rooms each evening was most welcome. And unlike a hotel, if you used the water, you weren't charged 5 dollars :) (I just love it when hotels have Aquafina in the rooms for you, don't you? Argh!)

The wine and cheese each evening was a special treat. I've had wines from Penfolds, so I was glad to see some familiar choices with the Koonunga Hill. I was also happy to discover the True Grit, which Jeff said was a favorite of his. I don't think he chose it because I'm an English professor, but who knows!

I also appreciated their concern for my allergies - my husband had let them know about my down allergies as well as my food allergies. I never had to worry. I'm always concerned when I travel about this, so it was nice to be able to relax and enjoy my visit without the worry of "Will this send me to the hospital?"

The breakfasts were delicious and filling. The fruit and yogurt was yummy; I'm not usually a plain yogurt fan, but I really loved what they served. Each morning we had a different main course, but the true treat was that they made chocolate chip and coconut pancakes for my birthday. My husband had mentioned it when we first arrived - that he made them for me - so they decided to give it a try. Yum! In fact, they were even better, because they were served with fresh raspberries and cream.

Our hosts recommended some great places to visit and shared with us some good choices for dinner. We loved Nona in Granville as well as the Chop House in Newark, where we saw John Hiatt and Lyle Lovett play at the Midland Theatre. We shopped at the Grand View Mercantile, where we found two sets of amazing glasses and the really big find: a red leather chair and ottoman. The chair and ottoman are Reid Leather, and retail for about 3k total. We bought them for such a bargain I'm ashamed to mention it here.

At night, we sat in the pool house, with its fireplace and flat screen tv, where we enjoyed our wine, cheese, and the company of the family dog. I felt a bit guilty leaving our dogs at home, so it was nice to have some canine companionship.

Everything about the visit was perfect. I highly recommend this place. I think I blathered enough about it. Time to get back to grading papers!

We're looking forward to you both returning soon for another getaway visit as the weather warms-up! The pool officially opened-up yesterday - just because we're overly anxious for Spring to get here and stay and we'd rather be looking at the relaxing water on nice, sunny days than the cover!
