Terra Nova House B&B
Ranked #1 of 3 Grove City B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We are from Toronto and decided to go cross border shopping in Grove City, PA to save on the taxes. It took us 5 hours (rained the entire way and one major accident). I think normally you could get there in 4 hours. It's definitely 1 1/2 - 2 hours from Fort Erie.

Having read the reviews on the hotels situated across the street from the outlet mall I was a bit dubious about wanting to rent a room there so we opted on the Terra Nova House B&B.

The B&B is really quaint, with Newfoundland roots - it has since passed through owners I think 3 times.

We stayed in the British Room - which was lovely, large and clean! My only complaint would be the size of the bathroom which is a converted closet. It reminded me of sitting on a charter plane designed with no leg room for tall people(we're both 5' 10"). We did get an opportunity to view all the other rooms as we were the only guests (we were there mid-week) - and the bathrooms in the other rooms are all very large - so if you are tall - opt for the other rooms first.

The breakfast was fantastic! As were the snacks when you arrive.

The owner is wonderful - great conversation and very helpful. He booked dinner for us at an Italian restaurant - which was also very good, and made lots of other helpful recommendations.

As for the location to shopping - maybe a 5 min drive down the road. The mall has a lot of stores, and it's best to organize yourself before going by reviewing the map and identifying the stores you want to visit. We shopped the first evening and then the morning of the next day. I highly recommend - staying 2 nights as to not be rushed.

We also checked out the Slovakian store which is about half way between the B&B and the Mall. Having been to Slovakia it was great to walk down memory lane. The store also features products from Poland, Ukraine (Eastern Europe) etc.

We'll be back to stay at the Terra Nova House! Loved the B&B, loved the shopping, loved the little mini adventure.

Thank you for the wonderful review! I see that you stayed on Oct 2012. In Jan 2013, the British Empire room was expanded and reconfigured. It is now no longer a little closet bathroom and can easily accommodate larger/taller guests. You can view the latest pictures on our website. I do hope to see you again this year! -- Ryan

We had received a gift certificate for Christmas! Even though we were only 20 minutes from home it felt like a million miles! The service was exceptional! With 2 preteen children our lives are chaotic, so nice to know there is a place closeby to get away from it all!!! Our Room was so so clean, it was quiet, and the food was exceptional!
Thanks Mercer Family, we will be telling ALL of our friends!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Brittish Room, WE LOVED IT

Beautiful place, extraordinarily comfy and clean, and friendly attentive owner. The best B&B I've ever stayed at: excellent foid, well-stocked with coffees and teas and heslthy snacks, free wifi and Netflix. I would give this establishment 6 stars if it were allowed.

This was our first visit to Terry Nova, and it was a wonderful experience. The facility is cozy and beautifully appointed. Ryan and Molly have thought of everything to make you feel comfortable and well fed. There are plenty of snacks and beverages available, not to mention their pastries and fruit and cheese trays that are there for you in the evening. And of course the delicious breakfast topped everything off. You won't go wrong staying here on your next visit to Grove City.

Ryan and Molly Mercer's Terra Nova House is a beautiful, peaceful, elegant B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay and plan to return many more times. Ryan makes you feel at home with endless hot drinks and snacks. The meat/cheese/chocolate plate with your name on it makes you feel like a celebrity. Our baked good for the evening was a rich chocolate drizzled brownie that melted in your mouth. Our stay in the British Empire Room made us feel like we were royalty living in England. The newly renovated bathroom was spacious and beautiful! The bed was extremely comfortable and cozy. The selection of food for breakfast was impressive. You were allowed as many sides as you wanted. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. My in-room massage was very relaxing and comfortable. Ryan's professionalism, knowledge and kindness are very appreciated. He made dinner reservation for us and had printed directions for the restaurant. Ryan and Molly's love for B&B's is very evident in the way they run theirs. It's very nice to see people pursuing and loving their passion. May God Bless the Terra Nova House family and all their guests!

After staying in the Terra Nova house I don't know why anyone would stay in a hotel. The owners have thought of everything and the value is outstanding. The rooms are quiet, quite spacious, the breakfast was very nice and the location is easy and convenient.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

This was our second visit to the lovely Terra Nova House and my husband and I loved absolutely everything from the fruit, cheese and chocolate plate and homemade chocolate brownie for two upon our arrival, to the delicious home-style breakfast prepared fresh for us the next morning. Ryan is the consummate host and always goes the extra mile to make his guests feel not only feel at home, but comfortable and pampered (e.g. nice touches like quality toiletries and a Keurig machine for fresh coffee or hot chocolate) inside their beautiful Victorian- style B&B. He even upgraded our room to the wonderful and cozy English Rose because we enjoy the over-sized bathroom! As usual, we had a fabulous stay and very much look forward to our next visit in the New Year. Kudos!
