Polly Harper Inn

6308 South River Road , Geneva, OH 44041 USA (Show map)


Come and experience the beauty and serenity of Ohio's largest grape-growing region. The Polly Harper Inn rises majestically above acres of vineyards that roll gently toward the scenic Grand River. Enjoy hiking or cross-country skiing on trails through an old growth woodland on the south bank of the mighty Grand. Or just relax with some local wine as you gaze at the fire from the corner jacuzzi.

My husband and I have stayed in the Polly Harper Inn three times in the past two years and each stay has been wonderful. The B &B is beautiful and the attention to detail is amazing. The breakfasts are delicious and very filling. The owners are so accommodating and gracious. The wine tours are interesting and plentiful. It's a great activity to do in the area. We will definitely be back again!

This was our first stay at a B&B and it was just delightful!! We stayed in Annie's Room and was ever so comfortable with the nice comfy bed and the warmth of the fireplace. The breakfast that we were provided both days was simply delicious. Cozy, comfy,and a wonderful experience. Looking forward to returning in the summer. Would recommend Polly Harper Inn to anyone who wants a clean and comfy environment close to all of the wineries.

Amazing winter stay for Husbands Bday!

First time experience with a B&B, think we are now spoiled 4-ever. Robert's room was Beautiful, cozy & cleaner then the Ritz Carlton. Comfy bed, toasty fire place, Jacuzzi tub. Loft area was very unique. Owners give you complete privacy they live next door and she left us an amazing breakfast both mornings! Definitely returning after the thaw. Close to wineries, whiskey barn and hiking trails which we attempted in crazy snow drifts but the scenery was breath taking. Much needed mind, body and soul experience.

We have been visiting Geneva for at least ten years and choose Polly Harper Inn for the outstanding rooms, service, cleanliness and great breakfasts. Would highly recommend this and we have to many of our friends who agree with our evaluation. Perch

We stayed Friday to Saturday of this week and it was amazing. We stayed one night but wish we could have extended it! The inn is quaint with attention to detail from the decor to the huge breakfast served in the morning. It has a watchtower and is located next to miles of vineyards. The innkeepers are friendly and are available for all of your needs. We will be back thanks again!

Beautiful, quiet home.

What a beautiful, quiet home! The decor is absolutely beautiful! Susan and Jeff were very hospitable offering directions to local attractions and providing a great breakfast. Nice amenities such as coffee, tea, popcorn, wine glasses. The bed was very comfortable. We would definitely recommend the Polly Harper Inn to others. The breakfast alone makes the trip worthwhile!

Nice place to stay, but keep the fireplaces turned on!!!

3.2 on April 22, 2010

We have been here a couple times. It's very nice but when we arrived the second time the fireplaces were not turned on because they owners didn't think it was cold enough. But quite frankly for $160 a night if I want to run the fireplace, whether it's cold or not, it should be my option. On their website they say the rooms have fireplaces, but don't indicate that they are shut off. BTW we went in late september and it was very chilly out! We do love it at The polly Harper Inn and will return. I will just make sure when the room is booked that this ammenity is available when we plan to go.

Innkeeper Response
In response to the review dated 4/22/09,we found it curious that the guests who submitted the review on the above date actually stayed last September. Also, we always encourage our guests to call us if they have any questions during their stay. No call was made as we strive to respond if there is a concern. Regarding the fireplaces, when the weather is warm the central air-conditioning is activated. This necessitates shutting down the gas fireplaces as they give off a lot of heat, thus defeating the purpose of the A/C. Sometimes, especially during spring and fall, outside air temperatures can change dramatically with the passage of fast moving weather fronts. This can make it difficult to determine the most comfortable temperature. To reiterate,we found it a bit odd that a review was posted 7 months after a stay. Possibly, other personal issues initiated this much delayed response. Sue and Jeff Burkholder Polly Harper Inn

We have stayed here twice and love the location and the rooms. The only downside is that the breakfast tends to lean towards the sweet and cold. Lots of sweets and no hot foods.

Wine Country Get Away

We enjoyed a quiet get away in the Polly Harper Room. We watched the deer in the vineyards from the tower window. It was a relaxing stay, just what we were looking for.
