“Norman Rockwell would have loved to live here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

This bed and breakfast is truly beautiful. The property, the house, the food, the owners and even their dog Elle are what dream getaways are made of.
Bobbi & Jeff are wonderful, intelligent owners with a passion for their inn. My husband and I still want to know how Jeff can make a piece of bacon taste like Honey Baked Ham.
The Inn provided the perfect solution to a place my husband and I would equally enjoy. I surprised him with an out of town stay over the October 19th weekend and tickets to the Ohio State football game(approximately a 30 minute drive into Columbus). He loved both!
The fireplace in the livingroom and 24/7 access to the coffee, espresso, and speciality teas table were perfect for that coldest weekend of the year. The bed was probably the most comfortable we had ever slept in. I was surprised to learn the house was put together by the owners. I would have believed that Better Homes And Gardens decorated it.
During our stay Jeff was out clearing more walking paths around the property. We hope to return in the spring to use them!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the first time and it will definitely not be the last. Bobbi and Jeff were amazing hosts along with their sweet puppy Ellie. Food was absolutely amazing and our room was cozier and accommodating more than we could ever have imagined. They took care of every little detail from a carriage ride around Granville, to an amazing Hot Stone Massage! We are already discussing having our wedding here as well. The Welsh Hills Inn is a must for anyone looking for a quiet, romantic getaway...

My husband and I wanted a little getaway for our anniversary. I had been to the Inn the previous year but he had not been yet. I had certainly built the place up to him, but still, he was very surprised to see the beauty of the Inn and the surrounding area firsthand. Bobbi and Jeff were gracious as usual and gave up delightful chocolates in our room. The room we stayed in was so comfortable and the bathroom was clean with exquisite granite counter tops. We took advantage of the pool since it was a beautiful day in Granville. It was so nice to just sit and relax at such a well cared for B&B. It was as though we were staying at our "rich" friends' house! Our stay certainly came to an end much too quickly, but we will most definitely be back next year!!

Green Features: Jeff & Bobbi regularly go to the farmers market in downtown Granville to get fresh local produce and jams for breakfast. Seriously, it was like eating at the Ritz Carlton; William's Sonoma place settings, Smith and Hawken outdoor furniture....everything is super top-notch!

My wife and I stayed at the Welsh Hills over Thanksgiving – our third stay – and the visit was as wonderful as our previous stays, with a couple of new touches. The Welsh Hills Inn looked as lovely as always, the room couldn’t have been cozier— from snacks and libations (including that amazing artesian well water) to lovely music and a down comforter and mattress to die for. We felt our every need had been anticipated. What really makes the place unique, though, is the warmth and graciousness of our hosts. Picture this: it’s late on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, we’re preparing for an early exchange of family Christmas gifts and are taking piles of boxes and wrapping paper up to our room, and Bobbi and Jeff insist that we set up in front of their fire so that they can help! Who does that?? As other reviewers have noted, the hosts strike a perfect balance between giving you the run of their magnificent and spacious home on the one hand and chatting like old friends on the other.

When we arrived at WHI, my wife quickly spotted a selection of local art work (pottery and glass), teas, soaps, and other items for purchase at the Inn. We were pleased to see how reasonably priced. Bobbi took note of the items my wife liked; on the morning of our departure we found that she had set them aside for us, and she carefully packaged all of them to withstand the trip home. As always, we left WHI incredibly relaxed and happy. We can’t recommend the house and its owners highly enough.

We celebrated out silver wedding anniversary at the Welsh Hills Inn, and really had a great stay. Jeff and bobbi could not have been better hosts and the ambiance, accomodations, grounds, food and nearby town of Granville were everything we hoped for. We will look forward to visiting again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Derwen Del room which was spacious, has great views.

Green Features: We enjoyed their picnic lunch which was packed in re-usable containers and included recyclable bottles.

I was rather weary about staying in a B&B. Bobbie made me feel very at ease and comfortable. Their home is beautifully decorated and so full of charm. Everything is top quality in the construction of the facility to the sheets on the bed. ****An absolute must is the private dinner for two. The BEST dinner I have ever had. It was bought fresh that day from the farmers market. Every touch was made with love. It was an honor to stay in your B&B.

Aaron and I came for our second anniversary, and it was a lovely get-away. Jeff and Bobbie made us feel very welcome, and they have also perfected the art of giving you space when you want it. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious. And we had fun swimming in the pool, and hiking the trails. We also were intrigued by Granville, it is such a friendly, quaint town. One thing I just loved was coming home at night.....they always turned down the beds, turned on the lamps and put out a little snack. We recommend the Inn 100%.
