Phenomenal

5 on August 01, 2016

I reserved the British Empire suite for my Aunt and Uncles 50th wedding anniversary and from the reservation to check out Ryan was a perfect host. They decorated the room with our decorations and they LOVED it. This is the friendliest, cleanest and most gorgeous place, you have to visit to enjoy the experience. And the brownies are to die for. Thank You Ryan for making their day special.

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy we could help in your Aunt and Uncle celebrating their anniversary! Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We set high standards for our b&b, and we are delighted you feel we met those standards. Looking forward to your next visit for another to die for brownie!!


Home away from home!

5 on July 11, 2016

The Terra Nova Bed and Breakfast was not only clean and homey, but offered a beautiful, safe place to stay while away from home. Our meals were delicious and all the "extras" were a bonus. You have thought of everything to make our stay perfect!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your stay and review. We have tried to think of everything that you would possibly need during your stay...and even some things you would never have thought of! We look forward to serving you during your next visit to Grove City, PA. - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper


lovely place

5 on June 30, 2016

Their brownies are worth a detour in your trip! And it's a very relaxing, cozy and homey but professional and convenient place to spend some time.

Innkeeper Response
Ah the brownies! We wish we could take credit for making the brownies, but all that goes to Pastries by Andrea in Mercer, PA. When you find something that works, repeat it. That's why the first evening, you are almost guaranteed to have a Pastries by Andrea brownie waiting for you with your name on it! If you stay multiple nights, you will get to enjoy a different Pastries by Andrea creation. And yes, it is very difficult not to eat all we have in stock! We look forward to serving you another brownie soon! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper


Outstanding B&B -- everything a picky woman would want!

5 on June 05, 2016

We had a best friend weekend and stayed for two nights. I've stayed at B&Bs all over the world and this has to be the cleanest and most graciously appointed. The breakfast was amazing and we enjoyed every nook and amenity. The brownie was to die for. Ryan and Loni took great care of us.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for enjoying your BFF weekend with us at TNHBNB. We are thrilled that you consider us one of the best bed and breakfasts in the world! We look forward to your future weekends with us as much as you look forward to another brownie! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper


Great place/wonderful service

5 on May 26, 2016

This is a wonderful place to stay and the service is excellent! Clean, comfortable with very nice touches including snacks, sweets and coffee. The breakfast is excellent with a good selection. Ryan helped me make restaurant reservations and gave me great recommendations for food and things to do. I have stayed in almost every room over 4 years and can say that they are all great! Ryan also notified us when we left something behind. You will never get that personnel service a Hotel chain. Do yourself a favor when traveling in the Grove City PA area and STAY HERE!

Innkeeper Response
We greatly appreciate your loyalty over the years! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

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
