My boyfriend and I come to The Paddock Inn every year. We used to go around the state and try out different B&Bs, but not since our first visit here. There is no comparison - Belinda is the best inn keeper with the best inn!

Great weekend!

We had a great weekend at The Paddock Inn! Belinda was so hospitable, and she is a great cook! The scenery was beautiful and peaceful, and the room was cozy and felt like home. We really enjoyed the movie theater and our son adored The Muffin Man (miniature pony). We would definitely stay here again!

We had two rooms for the Vintage Grand Prix and Belinda did a wonderful job taking care of us. It was very clean and the breakfast was some of the best we've ever had. We WILL stay there again. A+ all around

My wife and I had never stayed at a B & B, before staying here. We loved it so much the first time that we have now started staying there every time we are in that part of the state. We have stayed at a couple others sense staying here but none measure up . We simply love this place. Thanks for a great stay see you in the summer.

Relaxing experience in a beautiful bed & breakfast

We were looking for a place to stay close to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course when we found The Paddock Inn. The Inn is much bigger than it looks from the road. The rooms, all named after key sections of the Mid-Ohio track, were clean, quiet, secure, and quite lovely. Belinda, the innkeeper, is a warm and friendly person who really makes you comfortable and at ease. Every morning we were greeted by a hot pot of coffee and a made to order, delicious breakfast served on our schedule. Of course we must be sure to mention our favorite new friend, Petunia, Belinda's dog. She’s a real sweetheart. We stayed in the China Beach room and hope to stay in The Carousel on our next visit. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend The Paddock Inn. – Becky and Jeff Geltz

What An Outstanding Place !

We were catering a party next door with our roasted corn business and stayed here for the night. Belinda and Michael are the nicest couple I have met in a long time. The house was amazing and everything was super clean. We wish we had more time to enjoy all there was to see and do. This is an extrordinary place and Belinda was so sincere about your stay,the house and the horses that you can't help but fall in love with her. I recommend this to everyone who is in the area or already lives here for a pampered weekend or night.

Great stay near the Track

This is a gorgeous home near the Mid-Ohio Raceway. We weree treated to the most delightful hostess who was easy to talk to and eager to please. Her knowledge of Amish country and the local attractions was unmatched. The horses on the property were beautiful and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only minor flaw was the lower quality pillows and the too firm matress. Bring your own feather pillow and you will be fine.

Paradise in the middle of Ohio's Amish country

This lovely little inn is an amazing reflection of its incredibly charming and generous hostess, Belinda. We so enjoyed chatting with her, hearing about her travels and learning about the Lexington/Mansfield area. Further, we have been staying in B&B's for a quarter of a century and have never stayed in a room as grand (yet cozy) as the Carousel Room. Impeccably appointed, possessing all of the creature comforts you would expect from a 4 star hotel, and immaculately clean. Unexpected bonuses were the beautiful views of the heart-shaped pond, the friendly horses (especially Muffin Man) and kittens, and the sweet delights left out for our enjoyment. So enthralled were we that we have already made return reservations for next year. Do not miss this little bit of heaven in the country!!
