Come and enjoy a relaxing getaway in the heart of Mid Ohio! The Wishmaker House Bed and Breakfast is a fully renovated 10,000 square foot 1890s home located in picturesque Bellville, Ohio. Located within minutes of many great Mid Ohio attractions like, Mid Ohio Sports Car Course, Ohio State Reformatory and Malabar Farm and Mohican State Parks. We have eight guestrooms, including one handicap accessible room and one 1,200 square foot suite. All rooms have air conditioning, TV, internet access and private baths. Several of the rooms have fireplaces and balcony access with lovely town views. In the warmer months, guests can relax on our beautiful outdoor patio. We offer several cozy public areas within the B & B when the weather is cooler. Snacks are offered nightly and a full, freshly cooked breakfast is included for guests in the mornings. We try to use local ingredients whenever possible in all of our dining selections!
Alta’s room is the only guestroom on the first floor. It is also handicap accessible. This room, which was named for Alta Smith, Brad’s grandmother, overlooks the patio and gardens. Alta was an avid gardener and was known throughout the area for her beautiful flower beds. This room features hardwood floors, custom window treatments, and a handcrafted, Amish made queen bed.
At the top of our beautiful staircase you will find Nancy’s room, which is named for Brad’s mother. This room overlooks Main St. and features an electric log fireplace with original tiles, a queen bed with upholstered headboard, and cozy linens. It also has balcony access. The private bath has a full size shower. The room is decorated in shades of lavender (Nancy’s favorite color), chocolate brown, and light blue.
This room is named for Mike and Rosemary Myers, former owners of the Wishmaker House, when it was known as Myer's Furniture Wishmaker House. They purchased the building in 1943 and after many years in business the furniture store closed its doors in 2010. This room has a queen size bed, private bath with shower, and access to a balcony overlooking Main St. and the park. It is decorated in black and rich earthy tones of paprika and gold. Mike and Rosemary loved to travel and the décor in this room reflects that love of adventure!
Overlooking the village green with access to a balcony is Bill and Jewelene's room, which is named for Brad's father, Bill, and his wife, Jewelene. During the renovation process, Bill was at the B&B almost every day helping out with one project or another! This room features Laura Ashley bedding in shades of tan, ivory, and a soft aqua, which gives it a very relaxed and peaceful feel. There is also a queen size quarter sewn oak bed, an electric log fireplace, and a private bath with shower.
At the top of the stairs to the right is Whitney’s room, named for Brad and Karen’s daughter in law. This room features colors of raspberry, chocolate brown and paprika and has a more modern feel. It also has a dark stained maple queen bed with high end bedding and a private bath with a shower. Whitney’s room overlooks a small garden.
Paul and El’s room overlooks the back alleys of Bellville (which Paul would’ve loved!) and is named for Karen’s parents. This room has a more masculine look to it with Ralph Lauren Paisley bedding, an oak queen size bed, and hardwood floors.
Cassie’s room is one of our larger rooms, with great amenities (Brad and Karen’s daughter, Cassie, wouldn’t have it any other way!). This room overlooks the village green and the beautiful homes of Park Place on one side and the patio and gardens on the other. This room features a large bathroom with a shower and a soaking tub, plus a private balcony! The bathroom also features a beautiful beveled glass window, which was repurposed from another local property owned by the Smiths. This room also has original hardwood floors, a queen size bed and custom window treatments.
On the third floor of the Wishmaker House is a 1200 sq. ft. suite. This room is spacious and light filled, with views of the village from several dormer windows. The open floor plan of this room features sitting areas, a dining/gaming table, and a kitchenette. A queen bed and unique furnishings complete this room. The suite’s bathroom has a beautifully tiled shower and a soaking tub.
