Really wonderful place

I stayed overnight in the Carribean Room which was super comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely stay there again. They communicate very clearly and are very friendly!

Accommodation to the max!

5 on March 22, 2016

I had the pleasure of staying at the Terra Nova while on business in the area. My schedule and reservations were a bit out of the normal, but Ryan was able to meet my every need and accommodation. Although I opted out of having the breakfast, I can tell you that the rooms I stayed in (especially The Lodge) were extremely clean and comfortable. The cheese plate and baked good were a nice touch as well. Will most definitely stay here again if I am in the area!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words! We are very pleased to hear that you had such a great experience and found everything to be clean and comfortable. We look forward to seeing you again - next time make sure to get one of our delicious breakfasts. Thanks again! - Loni Thomas, Assistant Innkeeper

Charming B & B

4.0 on March 13, 2016

My sisters and I stayed in the English Rose room when we recently visited Grove City College. We were extremely impressed with this excellent accommodation. Ryan, the Innkeeper, has thought of every detail to make our stay comfortable. The Inn is charming and super clean - we liked that it is located so close to the college. We will highly recommend Terra Nova House to all our friends, and will chose to stay there whenever we visit Grove City.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us while visiting Grove City College, only a few blocks away from the B&B. We are pleased that you found the B&B charming and clean. We look forward to your future visits and meeting all your friends! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper


Fantastic stay!

5 on March 09, 2016

During a recent college visit my son and I stayed here. The room was neat and attractive but the food was definitely a highlight. The brownies at bedtime and the pumpkin waffles for breakfast were amazing. Also received fantastic service including returning a book to me which I left behind. Would highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us as your son visited Grove City College. We look forward to your son accepting and your many future visits. We are glad that you enjoyed the huge brownie made by Pastries by Andrea from Mercer, PA...we agree that they are AMAZING! Until next time! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper


Best B&B we have ever stayed at!!

5 on March 06, 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Outstanding food and accommodations! The innkeeper took the time to come and chat. Lonnie prepared a delicious breakfast for us. All our expectations were met, and then some. We will definitely tell our friends in Canada about this fabulous B&B. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!

Innkeeper Response
We are happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and that all your expectations were met! We look forward to your next stay...and, yes, please spread the word in Canada! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper


Home away from home!!!

5 on March 03, 2016

About 12 years ago my sister in law and I started doing a Dec. "getaway". Some years we have a lot of shopping some not so much. We have stayed at many of the Inns, hotels and B & B's in the area. Two years ago we found Terra Nova! How very lucky for us!!! We will not stay anywhere else!! The accommodations are beautiful, clean and relaxing! Ryan and Molly are the ultimate hosts. From the time you are welcomed at the door until the time to leave they make you feel like you are staying at a favorite relatives in a beautiful home! The last two years we have added Olde Grove City Winter Wine Walk in Feb. Such a welcome break for the doldrums of winter. The breakfast we enjoy each morning is incredibly delicious!!! We highly recommend it, and would not think of staying anywhere else!!! Kathie K.

Innkeeper Response
We greatly appreciate your repeat business and for not wanting to stay anywhere else! It is our goal to make everyone feel as though they are at their home away from home...and to spoil them as well with all the little extras! We look forward to your future stays! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper


What more to ask for!!!!

5 on January 24, 2016

We could go on and explain all the great things this bed and breakfast offered and we would be here for awhile writing this. We have been to several Bed and Breakfast and this place has it down to all the details anyone could ask for. The Mercer's have thought of everything. Thank you for a great stay!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind words! We greatly appreciate your wonderful review; although, we would have loved to read your extended version. We look forward to your next stay with us! - Loni Thomas, Assistant Innkeeper
