Headley Inn

5345 West Pike , Zanesville, OH 43701 USA (Show map)


The inn is 185 years old, constructed of 18 inch thick sandstone block and was built to serve travelers on the National Road. It has many interesting features and eccentricities including, six fireplaces and three spiral staircases. The Headley Inn is one of the very unique places to stay in Muskingum County. We offer a single bedroom and a 2 bedroom suite, all with queen sized beds available for your stay. The great room on the first floor is a common area for all guests. Each bedroom room has its own private bathroom, although not located ensuite. We also provide free Wi-Fi access for all guests as well as Netflix in every room. If you prefer more privacy the Chestnut Cabin is located directly behind the Inn. The cabin was originally built in 1777, but has been updated with all of the amenities of an efficiency cottage.

Historic and Comfortable

My first stay at a bed and breakfast could not have been better. The Inn was beautiful, the bed comfortable, and the Innkeepers were welcoming. If I ever have the opportunity, I will definitely visit again!
