My beautiful bride and I have been doing B&Bs for about 14 years and we have stayed at about thirty higher-end places, both in Michigan and Ohio. Spending three days at Willowbrooke this has been a truly "Over The Top" experience. You get a sense that you are in for something incredible with the 1/5 mile drive off the country road into the property. This is a totally secluded and wooded B&B on approx. 40 acres. The prices are very reasonable and some of the "rooms" are almost like apartments. Breakfast is world-class with everything imaginable and the presentation makes you feel like French Royalty. This place merits (and rightly deserves) a "seven star" rating. This "Jewel-In-The-Woods" is probably the best kept secret with people who visit Denison U. If you are into nature, you will also find free-roaming Peacocks on the grounds. There are several five-star restaurants in nearby Granville, as well as interesting places to visit. If you insist on the absolute-best in a B&B, don't miss the chance to stay here. It's a jaw-dropping experience.

My wife and I stayed at Willowbrooke for 2 nights and found such a quiet peaceful getaway. We stayed in the Garden Suite. It was extremely clean, well kept and furnished with all necessities. The setting was beautiful in the woods with the beauty of wildlife and nature all around. The hot home cooked breakfasts were delicious and served by such a delightful, smiling host. If you're looking for a place for relaxation and total serenity, I highly recommend this place. I gave it an outstanding review in each category.

We just returned from a wonderful 4th anniversary trip to WillowBrooke and we will surely be back next time we are in the Columbus area. I can't say enough great things about this bed and breakfast. It is very secluded from the road, and an absolutely beautiful building. We stayed in the upstairs master suite which was HUGE! The room was extremely clean and adorably decorated. There was a 2 person jacuzzi tub in a seperate bathroom, complete with candles and even a TV with tape player in there to watch some movies while relaxing in the tub! I loved the spacious vanity area to get ready in the morning. The room also came with a microwave, refrigerator, full dining room table, and a variety of coffees, teas, hot chocolates and popcorn to make right in our room. There is also a massive collection of DVDs and VHS tapes to choose from if you feel like relaxing in the room or tub! The bed was SO COMFORTABLE with the pillow top mattress. The owner was extremely friendly and make a fantastic breakfast each morning (strawberry french toast, eggs, and bacon one morning, and the next we had cinnamon apples, zucchini bread, and an egg omelet souffle!) She is a great cook. There really is nothing negative I could say about this place, and we will have to return soon for another trip!

This is truly the most unbelievable bed & breakfast ever! It was extremely peaceful, beautifully decorated, perfectly secluded & the exact dream location I was looking for to spend a quiet relaxing weekend away!!! I definitely will return to this amazing place as it was worth every penny to spend a weekend in the Garden Suite - from the beautiful Firelight Glass candles in every room to the wonderful fireplace & from the full kitchen to the very romantic heart shaped jacuzzi.... it was the most perfect weekend. Their website is 100% accurate when it says, "You won't want to leave....."

My cousins and my aunt all stayed here in August. It was a very nice B&B. The inkeeper was very hospitable. The hot breakfasts were tasty and served in her formal dining room. It is a nice location, not far from Columbus, the Longaberger factory and the Amish country. It is a nice quiet, relaxing location in the country.

We will be back for our fourth visit because we love the privacy and amenities of the Garden Suite. The scenery with woods and wildlife is beautiful, and breakfasts are hearty and delicious. The innkeeper is especially concerned that guests have all the comforts for a wonderful stay. Highly recommended!

We stayed in the Garden Suite for an abbreviated honeymoon. Beautifully appointed with a full kitchen and beautiful decor with modern conveniences and a beautiful view. We cannot say enough how wonderful Sandra was for both my dietary restrictions and general kindness. The peacocks are not to be missed!

Melissa and I return to Willowbrooke at least once every year. Sandra is always great to us and the accomodations are perfect. It is a very peaceful and quiet setting back in a beautiful wooded property! Willowbrooke is a place that allows us to put our normal lives on hold and spend some relaxing and romantic time together! I would recommend Willowbrooke to anyone wanting that romantic and peaceful get away from work, everyday life...and without the hassle and restlessness of a hotel. If we do not make it back this fall we will certainly be back next February!

I actually purchased a room for the night for my daughter on the eve of her wedding. I had a last minute change. The Willowbrook Innkeepers were extremely understanding and helpful. I didn't tell them my daughter was getting married but when they arrived and mentioned the occassion, since the room was available, they switched them to the honeymoon suite which I thought was amazing! I didn't know they had one. My daughter and new husband thoroughly enjoyed their stay and the hospitality was superb. That's good to hear since this was also where I stayed on my honeymoon night 10 years before.
