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

This was the first time we'd decided to stay in a b n b. Considering it was the same cost as a hotel we thought, why not give it a try! Well, we had the best experience. Never actually expected it to be half as great as it turned out to be. We were greeted at the door right away. Given a tour, we had been given menus for each morning that we'd be there to pick out what we'd like for breakfast. The food was incredible. Each morning we got freshest baked treats from a local bakery close by (as well as our breakfast) . Each night we received a cheese and grape tray. They made reservations for us at restaurants.. so helpful and insightful. I can't wait to ho back here!

We had to cancel and try to reschedule our reservation at the last minute. Ryan was extremely helpful and allowed us to reschedule for the next weekend - no problem. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! Will definitely return when we can stay longer.

All areas of this B & B are exceptional. Ryan is very professional and organized, with several contacts before the stay to verify arrival times, detailed breakfast choice options, and any problems or questions we have. Rooms are clean and well appointed, and there are coffee makers/water dispensers on each floor for self service 24/7, along with snacks. Upon arrival, we received a fruit and cheese plate and large brownie. Breakfast was very flavorful and large portioned.

We have stayed at the Terra Nova House many times over the past three years. Our daughter attends Grove City College, and we have had occasion to come for numerous events and except for one time because of rooms already booked, we have always stayed at the B&B. Ryan has always been friendly and accommodating and makes incredible breakfast selections. The rooms are clean and feature everything you need. The common room is also nice and very welcoming. The extras include snacks, 24-hour coffee/tea/beverage, mini-fridge space, local brochures and coupons, and a very easy to navigate website. We have really enjoyed staying at Terra Nova and getting to know Ryan. We will miss it after our daughter graduates . . . but if we come anywhere near Grove City in the future, we will definitely try and stay at Terra Nova House. Highly, highly recommended! Thank you Ryan!

My friend convinced me to try a B and B on our recent cross border shopping spree and after staying at Terra Nova House, I'm a convert. Our host, Ryan, went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. From greeting us at our car, to bringing in our luggage, to the tour of the beautiful clean house, to letting us choose any empty room we liked, to the fruit, cheese & chocolate plate & brownie, to the many snacks and drinks on every floor, to the delicious breakfast, we received much more than we expected. To top it off, after we left, Ryan tracked us down in town to bring us two items that my friend had left behind. How cool is that? I can't wait to go back.
