Heaven in the Hills

5 on May 21, 2018

In 2011, I posted a review for this Inn asserting that I had found B&B gold in the Welsh Hills and predicting that the inn would soon be on lists of the best B&Bs. Who knew how understated that prediction would be?! At that time, the Inn had been in operation for about a year. Since then, the Inn has been named the #1 B&B in the USA and #4 inn world-wide! I returned recently after several years to find Heaven in the Hills! As I drove up the winding lane, the rows of ornamental pear trees lining both sides were magnificent with brilliant white spring blossoms and some petals floating slowly to the ground. I don't know what heaven looks like, but this was surely a good hint! As I pulled up to the Inn, Bobbi was there to greet me along with the Inn's two dogs, Ellie and Wrigley. Ellie, like me, has begun to show her years, but Wrigley is there to keep us feeling young. Bobbi gave me a choice of parking spaces for the duration of my stay. A hospitable practice! Bobbi and Jeff were the same gracious, helpful and friendly hosts they were back in 2011. But then they were intent on building the reputation of their Inn. Now, they have already reached the pinnacle of success. You can't do better than #1, right?! But this success has not gone to their heads. Now they are just down right genuine people who give as freely to their guests as they would to family or friends. In addition to being wonderful hosts, they were able to provide valuable advice and professional references to me regarding some local family business I had to take care of. The luxurious room and bathroom and the incredible breakfasts are still great and even a little better. Since 2011, my wife and I have traveled more broadly and have stayed at some extraordinary places. One was an inn in the Cotswolds in England once ranked as the #1 inn in the world by travelers. Another was the home of the clan which produced the kings of Ireland. I like the Welsh Hills Inn better.

Wonderful Stay

This is a lovely inn. It is in a peaceful setting with lovely grounds. The hospitality is superb. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. One of my highlights of this inn is Ellie and Wrigley, the resident pooches. This place is a perfect getaway!

Relaxation Redefined

Bobbi and Jeff have created a special bed and breakfast that truly lives up to their logo of "relaxation. redefined". We have been coming to visit over the last 4 years while our daughter has been at Denison University which is a 5 minute car ride away. Our times at the inn have provided us with a way to visit with our daughter and relax. The hospitality, their beautiful home & accommodations, grounds, amazing breakfast and Wrigley & Ellie (sweet dogs!) made us always feel happy and relaxed. We look forward to more visits even when our daughter is graduated!

B & B Art and Luxury!

Worth the trip from anywhere, we were treated to wonderful hosts (Bobbi and Jeff) and 5-star accommodations and food. I only wish we had more time.

It is a winner!

We traveled to the Welsh Hills Inn wondering what it was that rated it one of the best in the country and even in the world. We could sense the answer to that when we drove up the drive. Serenity abounds. From the perfectly decorated rooms to quiet surroundings the entire Inn welcomes you. Bobbi and Jeff tended to our greeting like we were family. We enjoyed the wine and cheese prepared so we could sit in front of the fire in the gathering room and unwind. In the morning we had the best breakfast we have ever had at a BnB. It was complete with a spectacular view of the fields and forest. We were only there one evening in the spring but we will return because this is a place that calls a visitor back. You must try it for yourself!

Counting down the days until we return!

5 on April 16, 2018

My family and I have had the opportunity to stay at the Inn a few times and it never disappoints. Bobbi and Jeff remember us each time and welcome us back with open arms. The property is so beautiful and clean from top to bottom and inviting from every aspect. The decor is amazing and makes you feel right at home. Every time we visit Bobbi and Jeff make each experience memorable and we look forward to returning very soon.

Special Place

5 on April 10, 2018

My wife and I just spent three fantastic days at the Welsh Hills Inn. We had a great time, with a couples massage, and a Candlelight Dinner. The place is beautiful, the food is great, and it is extremely clean. But above all Bobbi and Jeff make the place special. We will be back.

Extraordinary inn. Discovery at every turn.

5 on February 15, 2018

My husband and I just stayed here for a weekend get away. The way the driveway winds up to the inn, how the house is positioned on the hill, it felt like we were entering a familiar painting. When we parked, we noticed the snow inter-tubes propped nearby for our discovery. We stayed in the Brynmor Queen Luxe Suite. Although there is no tub in this private tucked away suite, it has its own living room with beautiful and equally comfortable furniture plus an area with an artful wooden counter with chairs that are multi-functional - we loved it, and plan to stay here again. Bobbi and Jeff, the owners/innkeepers are extraordinary people. Their inn is designed with discovery in mind. There are atypical books, incredible and whimsical artwork everywhere, a piano, a wood burning fireplace, and lots of space to hang out in. The food is top notch, from their thoughtfully prepared wine and snacks, to their bountiful breakfasts where they served us a national award winning blackberry jam, We enjoyed a private dinner, prepared by Bobbi and Jeff Friday night. I highly recommend this on the first night. My dinner included the best pork I have ever tasted. Bobbi and Jeff are down to earth artists and adventurers in tending to their home and their guests down to every detail and consideration. Ellie and Wrigley, their dogs, were our companions, waiting for us when we went on our walk in the countryside, playing with us in the snow and sitting down beside us. Finally, when we booked, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for our room. The abundant arrangement is still fresh, a wonderful reminder of how well we were cared for.

Simply a fabulous place to enjoy a getaway

5 on January 30, 2018

After staying at many B&Bs over the years, we definitely feel that the Welsh Hills Inn deserves every 5-star review that it has earned. We stayed at the Inn for two nights just after New Year's Day. Bobbi and Jeff were truly wonderful hosts, and the Inn (still beautifully decorated for Christmas) was the perfect place to unwind after the holiday season. Breakfasts were outstanding, and the snacks and wine in the afternoon were lovely. We also enjoyed finding delectable sweet treats in our rooms when we returned from dinner each evening. And Ellie and Wrigley were perfect canine hostesses as well! We will absolutely return and highly recommend the Inn to all travelers.
