Overwhelmed in Grove City

4.8 on September 30, 2015

With the only real B&B in a town one would think that the effort to please just would not be there....for Terra Nova this is not the case. The owner is present, supportive and provides the personal service that anyone would find first class. The appointments of the rooms is outstanding as is the décor and the breakfast and amenities presented would be something found in 5-star hotels. Stay and enjoy. The Willson's

Wonderful place to rest, relax, relate

After dropping off our youngest at GCC, we decided to celebrate being empty nesters by spending a night at Terra Nova house. Ryan met us promptly at 3 PM, showed us around, carried our bags, and made us feel at home. There are so many ways that Ryan makes you feel welcome, I can't cover them all, but for me, the access to coffee, juice and water 24x7 is primary. My wife on the other hand, loved the 2nd floor deck and the gluten-free brownie - just for her. Our only regret is not staying longer.

exceptional B&B

wonderful place to stay. The owners have taken care of every detail to make Terra Nova House special. I was greeted with a fruit and cheese plate and a home baked brownie. The place is clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast is gormet.I stay here on business every time I am in the area.

Celebrating our 47th anniversary

5 on July 18, 2015

We were presented with a gift certificate to the Terra Nova B&B and chose to use it to celebrate our anniversary. It was a lovely get-away. The accommodations were excellent, the food delicious (and generous) and every need was considered. Ryan was a very considerate host. We had a great time.

Great Experience!

This was our first visit to Terra Nova House and it was fabulous! The innkeeper immediately made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The amenities were endless! The innkeeper must have thought of everything and anything to make our stay comfortable! Our room and the entire property was meticulously cared for and very clean. The choice of breakfast times and foods was a very nice option. It seemed that every 5 minutes we were saying "Wow." We will definitely stay again and I have already recommended Terra Nova House to at least half a dozen people!

Impeccable A+

Four of us stayed for a girls weekend and we cannot say enough positive. Ryan and Molly go out of their way to make you comfortable. I've stayed at other b&b and this far surpasses any others

first time Bed/Breakfast was outstanding. We celebrated our 31st anniversary and this was worth the stay.

Outstanding stay!

This being my first B and B stay, I was not entirely certain what to expect, but my host Ryan made it a wonderful experience! The rooms are extremely clean and themed with individual personalities. Ryan goes to great lengths to ensure the comfort of his guests including such thoughtful touches as readily available snacks and a delicious baked good. Beware, the lemon bars are habit forming! Breakfast is served on time and extremely well prepared. I was fortunate enough to try the waffles that were housed in a mountain of fresh fruit, yogurt, with just the right amount of chocolate and whipped cream. They were absolutely fantastic as was the courtesy and kindness of the host. If you are in the area or are just and enthusiast of B&Bs this is an absolute must!

A memorable experience

4.0 on April 14, 2015

A great Bed (very comfy) & Breakfast (absolutely delicious, especially the French Toast Casserole!) All the comforts of home await your visit, right down to the cute Shampoo & Body Bar of soap. Ryan is at your beck and call for any need. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return on our next trip to the Grove City Area. Carole & Dale

Oatmeal Lovers

Breakfast is worth getting up early for! The slow-cooked oatmeal is outstanding: hardy, healthy and delicious. The best I've ever had. Enjoy.
