Treat Yourself to a Night at this Amazing Villa

5 on April 06, 2014

My husband, daughter and I spent a night at the Glen House Inn and were astonished and delighted by its beauty and luxury in such an unexpected location. It really is like staying at an Italian Villa with lovely views on all sides and an amazing attention to artistic detail from ceilings to floors. Clearly, no expense was spared in this lovingly created haven. We slept wonderfully in the very comfortable bed in the linen room and our daughter slept well on the sofa-bed. The breakfast cooked by Marina was truly delicious as was the coffee. We would love to come back and stay again and feel thoroughly pampered by our one night there. A bonus was getting to see an entire home full of the very beautiful paintings by the Owens' father, a well-known artist whose vibrant artwork filled the inn with joy. We will definitely be back.

Simply Amazing! Art, Architecture & Nature

5 on June 13, 2011

Erik & Deirdre Owens have created a Palladian villa nestled in the Glen Helen nature preserve area. The home is an amazing art gallery with rotating collections from local artists and the Owens themselves. The 12 foot ceilings and huge doors and windows make you feel at one with nature. The views from every window, door and chair, inside and out have been carefully planned to maximize the tranquil experience of nature. The heated pool is perfect for a few laps in the morning or just a lazy soak. And the breakfast belongs in a five star restaurant! Artwork on a plate and fireworks in the mouth!! This B&B is worth every penny and then some. I am writing this after our first night of four and already planning when we can make another trip to stay here. If you like Art, Architecture, Nature and gourmet food, this is the place to be!! Thank You! -Jeremy & Amanda
