Wonderful two night stay

5 on June 27, 2018

We enjoyed our stay at Terra Nova House so much! The innkeepers were helpful and friendly and breakfast was very tasty. All the rooms are so different and nicely decorated but we really loved our lodge room - like being in the forest! There were a lot of extra touches including snacks, water, refrigerators and drinks on each floor, anything we might need. The location was great for us as our group was visiting parents' and grandparents' hometowns in the area. It was also a very fitting place to stay for a historical themed trip. It was like a home away from home.

Innkeeper Response
The Lodge room is my favorite! Especially since I got to design every aspect of it! So glad that Terra Nova felt like your home away from home. We look forward to your future stays! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Delightful B&B

Fantastic B&B in a quaint country town!

5 on June 10, 2018

My husband & I frequent Grove City due to family living there. This was the first time we stayed at the Terra Nova House...& will not be the last! Everything about our stay was exceptional. Our room was CLEAN as was the entire house. It was quiet & pleasant. We felt welcomed by the prepared sack with our name waiting for us. Although we had a late arrival the Inn Keeper met us to be sure we got in okay. He was most pleasant to converse with too! And since we were there on a Sat/Sun we got to partake of the delightful breakfast prepared for us each morning. We've stayed in several B&B's over the years...this one will not disappoint you.

Innkeeper Response
We aim to please and it appears we hit the mark! Thanks for your stay and we look forward to seeing you again. - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Terra Nova Stay While Visiting Grove City College

5 on June 02, 2018

My son and I stayed in the British Empire room while in Grove City for a college admissions interview. It was our first visit to a bed and breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised over and over again. My son especially appreciated the round the clock access to coffee, soda, and snacks. The continental breakfast the first morning included some wonderful homemade baked items (chocolate scones and pineapple, orange, coconut muffins) as well as the more traditional items. The full breakfast served on Saturday was delicious, better than anything I would have expected to find even at a local restaurant. As a bonus, during some downtime we played an escape room type game that was provided by the owner and located in the common area downstairs. It really did feel more like visiting a friend than staying in a hotel. I didn't expect that, but it really made the whole weekend more enjoyable and relaxed for us.

Innkeeper Response
So glad to hear that you enjoyed the "Escape Box" that I created. We make every effort to have Terra Nova House be relaxing and more like a home away from home rather than a hotel. We do hope to see you many more times! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Everything you ever need is provided!

4.8 on April 03, 2018

My teenage daughter and I recently stayed in historic Terra Nova House and we both loved it! Our rooms were beautiful, spacious and quiet. Everything we needed and more was provided. We had a welcome cheese tray and brownie, snacks, drinks, waters, coffee, tea, etc. There were movies, games, nice music, real china to eat our continental breakfast on and more. We would stay there again if we are ever traveling that way. I highly recommend it!

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate the kind words and glad to hear you highly recommend the Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast. We try to provide everything a guest would need...and then some. We hope you are able to come back for a Friday or Saturday night stay so you can enjoy our full breakfast. - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Great Visit tot the Grove City Area

5 on February 24, 2018

We were first time guests at the Terra Nova House and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful Victorian home nicely decorated. We were enjoying a weekend get away visiting Grove City to check out the Koehler Brewing Company. Upon arrival, Ryan gave us a tour and showed us our room, The North Atlantic. Ryan gave us a rundown of local attractions and places to eat. He even made us reservations at a wonderful Italian restaurant called Nonni's Corner Trattoria. Our stay was wonderful, homey, and relaxing. We had a great breakfast before we departed. If we make a return trip to visit the Koehler Brewing Company, we will be staying at the Terra Nova House.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! Koehler Brewing Company has become one of our favorites as well. You will have to come back during warmer weather when the short walk to the brewery through town is beautiful! We look forward to seeing you again :)

Cozy in Grove City, Pa

5 on November 25, 2017

I was just out in Grove City to visit my daughter and her family, the Terra Nova is only 5 minutes from her. I originally was planning to stay 3 nights at the B&B, but an opportunity arose for me to stay in my daughters roommates apartment in the house, we only ended up staying one night at TN. The house was quaint. historic(which I love and wee maintained. We stayed in the Caribbean room which was the rooms theme. It was very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We would stay there again definitely, The owner and manager were both very friendly, cheerful and accommodating to our needs. The Continental breakfast offered a variety of items, they serve a home cooked one on the weekends but did include in ours a fresh cooked muffin of our choice from their selection. Lovely home and people. Very Satisfied customer

Innkeeper Response
I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your brief stay at Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast. Being within walking distance to Grove City College does make us very popular with the college parents. We look forward to your future stays! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

More than meets the expectations

5 on October 26, 2017

The accommodations were great, and when Ryan wrote that the breakfasts were filling, he wasn't kidding. We were in Grove City because our nephew was getting married 30 minutes and all the motels were chains. We were not disappointed with Terra Nova and its hospitality.

Innkeeper Response
Honesty is the best policy! We were happy to have you stay at Terra Nova House B&B! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Wonderful People

5 on October 24, 2017

This was our first stay at this particular B&B and it was wonderful. The most important thing, to me, is the people. We had dealings with Ryan and Loni and appreciated them both. We were there for a two-day presbytery meeting and we were rushed and tired, so we were probably not easy to deal with, but Ryan and Loni were gracious and accommodating. The house is beautiful, very clean, and filled with wonderful things to eat, drink, and do. We took full advantage. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with good hot water. We stayed in the English Rose room and it was quiet all night. We stayed two nights and the breakfasts...!!! Wow! The best B&B breakfasts I have ever had. And they worked with us when we had to change our schedule. I have to recommend this place. It would be a shame to miss it. I hope they continue to have great success.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your kind words and are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your two night stay. Yes, we do try to have everything that you would expect...and then some. All this adds up to a much better value than most hotels. We look forward to having you stay again. - Ryan Mercer, Owner

College visit

5 on October 08, 2017

Came to visit Grove City College and Terra Nova was a recommendation. We were overwhelmed with the personal attention, the comfy beds and the homey feeling. Lonnie was very welcoming after a 4 hr road trip and the continental breakfast was lovely. Ryan and Molly have thought of everything to make your stay special! Only problem? We only got to stay one night!! We hope to be back!

Innkeeper Response
We are so pleased to hear that you loved everything about the Terra Nova House while visiting Grove City College. We look forward to your next stay...and hope that it will be for multiple nights so you can enjoy the surrounding area as well. - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Our trip to Grove City for a reunion

5 on September 17, 2017

A very smooth weekend staying at Terra Nova. Ryan and his staff are very attentive to the guests. Room and the common areas are comfortable and clean with nice attention to details. Breakfasts were delicious.

We are glad to hear that your weekend with us was smooth and that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you back! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Fantastic stay!

5 on August 15, 2017

Such a fantastic place to stay! I'm so glad that I chose here over all the other hotels and AirB&B places I've looked at. It's my first stop on a 5-day bike trip from Pittsburgh to Lake Owasco in upstate New York, and I had such a great rest here. My room is voyage themed. It is fun. It is clean. It is comfortable. It is just great all around. The owner and the staff are all very friendly and welcoming. It felt homey, and I had my complete privacy. I took my post biking shower & nap, walked to downtown and Grove City college in the evening, had some great food, came back and had a great sleep. Then I woke up super refreshed for the next day of the trip! What an amazing stay! C:

Innkeeper Response
So happy that we could be the first stop on your 5-day bike trip. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the Terra Nova House as well as Olde Town Grove City and the Grove City College. We hope to see you again during your next bike trip! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

My hometown

4.8 on July 11, 2017

We really enjoyed our stay. My wife loved the rooms and the decorating. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The 2 young ladies we dealt with were great. They were organized, friendly, and were very responsive. We thought the food was very good. Free coffee, soda, water, tea. They also left cheese, fruit, and brownies every night. If you want personal service and feeling of home, this is a good choice.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! Jenica and myself, along with Ryan are so pleased you had such wonderful stay with us. We try to make you feel like you are staying in our home, which we all think of it as just that! We definitely will not let you leave our b&b hungry! We look forward to seeing you again during your next trip to Grove City! Thanks again.

Quiet and Quaint

4.6 on June 29, 2017

This was our first experience in a b&b and we chose it because it was comparable to a hotel. We had to check in late and the staff was very accommodating. They made sure we had all the information needed and provided their personal numbers in case questions arose. The biggest thing we had to do was read all of the information thoroughly and there was a lot of it. I'm not sure if that could be condensed, but it was a little overwhelming. We were surprised by a cheese/fruit plate, cold drinks, and a baked good included with the price of our room. I would have liked to see more than one room with a lighter color palate all around, but we enjoyed the room we stayed in. Easy to keep the room cool, friendly staff, delicious breakfast, and comfortable porches. Will stay there again if ever back in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for choosing Terra Nova House as your first bed and breakfast! Yes, unlike hotels, there is a bit more to explain because you are staying in someone's home...so we like to be detailed where everything is at in our guest binder so that you are not spending hours looking for something or thinking we don't have it available. You will find that is typical for most bed and breakfasts. Also, yes, at bed and breakfasts, each room is typically uniquely themed. We hope that you get back to try the other rooms (6 in total). - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Very enjoyable second stay

5 on June 06, 2017

We stayed at TNHB&B last year for our son's wedding. The stay was nice but hectic due to wedding activities. Our children gifted us a certificate for Christmas so we could return and enjoy it ourselves so we picked a time between Mother's and Father's day. We were able to feel like we got away from it all for a few days. We stayed in the Caribbean room. It is a bit smaller than some of the other rooms but still lovely and comfortable. Beverages and snacks are always available and they also provide a small fruit and cheese plate and delicious baked treat for an evening snack. Our stay was quiet and comfortable. They will email you breakfast menus for each of your mornings to pre select a few weeks ahead of time. If you are not interested in the breakfast option they will adjust the rate for you. I would recommend having the breakfast though. My personal favorite is a Baked French Toast. The owner's and staff do everything they can to make you feel welcome and assure you have a pleasant stay. They are helpful about information for the area, directions, places to dine and see. It feels as if you are staying with family when you stay at Terra Nova. Ryan the owner chatted with us both mornings and through out the stay. Books, movies, table games are available for you to enjoy too. If you prefer stay in with some take out or delivery, they have plates etc... for guests to use. We were so glad our children gifted a stay to us. We were really able to relax and enjoy all that Terra Nova has to offer. If you are looking at reviews and thinking about booking a stay, just do it! We feel that the stay is reasonable and relaxing. Our stay in June 2016 was our first experience ever at a B & B. We have stayed at one other since then and it was nice. But TNHB&B will spoil you. Thanks to all at TNHB&B for a wonderful, relaxing and delicious stay! Kim Gardner

Innkeeper Response
We do apologize to most of the other accommodations out there as, yes, we do tend to spoil our guests with all our complimentary extras. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

My "goto" B&B in the Slippery Rock area

3.8 on May 05, 2017

My wife and I like to annually, or twice annually, visit our son goes to Slippery Rock. Terra Nova House was our first choice. Ryan and Lori really keep the place very nice. They are also very welcoming. The house is beautiful. Ryan has always been very helpful in terms of both service as well as sharing things to do in the area. We love the outdoors so we spend most of our time on the go outside. However, it is a wonderful experience to come back to a place that is tranquil and relaxing. It is our "goto" place to stay when we come up for a visit So much so, that TNH's availability factors into part of the decision of which weekend to come up.

Innkeeper Response
We greatly thank you for your repeat stays with us! We love to see our returning families for both Slippery Rock University and Grove City College. Depending on the time of year college schedule wise we can fill up rather quickly, so thank you for basing your travel plans around our availability! We look forward to seeing you again soon :)

While visiting my daughter at Grove City College, I spent one splendid night a mere five minutes away at Terra Nova House. I appreciated the quiet atmosphere, the beautifully decorated rooms, and the delicious food. I am not known for taking photos of my meals, but my breakfast and the dishes it was served in were so beautiful that I had to take a picture! Thank you for a lovely stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your very kind words! It is definitely nice being only five minutes away from Grove City College, perfect for visiting parents! We are pleased you enjoyed our rooms and breakfast, we try our best to make both look outstanding! We look forward to seeing you again during your next trip to the campus. Thanks again!

Attention to every Detail

5 on April 15, 2017

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience at Terra Nova during a Genealogy Trip researching our ancestors who settled in the area. Ryan and Lonnie were very attentive and made sure that our two night visit was perfect. This is a beautiful B&B, we stayed in the North Atlantic room but every room is lovely. Our breakfasts were excellant and more than we could eat and we loved the availability we had to coffee, tea and snacks and the cheese, fruit and sweets in the evening. They thought of everything to make our stay special. We will definitely stay at the Terra Nova House on our next visit to the area.

Thank you for the kind words and we are happy to hear that you had a lovely stay. We look forward to seeing you again. - Ryan Mercer, Owner.

Birthday get-away

5 on April 08, 2017

I was only able to stay one night at Terra Nova House B&B, but it was wonderful! It was a present to myself for my birthday and it was a very good one! It was a very pleasant experience from the time I booked the room until the moment I left. The rooms are clean and very well appointed. You are welcomed with a small cheese plate and a huge brownie upon arrival! You are able to use the parlor for reading or just relaxing, all of the plates and utensils in the dining room, plus there is coffee/tea/hot water and snacks available for all of the guests. They provide a microwave, refrigerator, Keurig and snack area on each floor for the guests to use, which is more than I expected from a bed and breakfast. The little details - like a small air freshener/fan in each room that also helps block out any noise from other guests walking or talking in the hallways - makes you realize how attentive the owners/hosts are. (It's a very old house, so little things like that make a huge difference). I already plan on booking another stay later this year when it's warmer - that way I can enjoy time on the beautiful front porch and walk around the quaint downtown area. Oh, and did I mention that breakfast was awesome!!

Innkeeper Response
So glad to hear you had a great stay for your birthday get away! We are definitely detail oriented here at the Terra Nova House, so we are delighted you had everything you needed for a wonderful stay. Reading a book on our front porch is a favorite activity (even for us!), so we look forward to seeing you back again soon to relax in the warm weather! Thank you for your kind words.

Unique Inn with Personalized Service

5 on April 03, 2017

I stayed a night at Terra Nova because I wanted to avoid the generic, lookalike hotel. I was not disappointed. Each room is decorated in a unique style, the innkeepers are friendly, the amenities are enticing (a welcome snack plate, a brownie in the evening, complimentary beverages and snacks), and the breakfast is substantial. The inn is located near the downtown area and within easy driving distance of Grove City College.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your review. We are definitely more than just a generic hotel, and we are glad you got to experience that with us. We look forward to seeing you again during your next stop to the Grove City area!

Overnight get-away

5 on April 02, 2017

Spent one night in the Lodge Room (was actually my birthday present to myself!). Was greeted by Ryan and received a warm welcome. He showed me all that the inn had to offer, then showed me my room. Because I had booked direct and there were available rooms the night I was staying, he said I could have my choice of rooms. I chose to stay with my original choice, which was perfect! As a guest I received a small plate of cheese, crackers, grapes and chocolates, along with a HUGE brownie! The room was very comfortable and clean. You are able to choose your breakfast ahead of time, and it was awesome! (Pumpkin waffles that practically melted in your mouth!) I would definitely recommend Terra Nova, and I am looking forward to staying there again soon!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your great review! Booking directly definitely has its perks at the Terra Nova House, the free upgrades are just one of them! The lodge room is a wonderful room though, we do not blame you for staying with your original choice. Soon our pumpkin waffles are changing to our spring fruit and yogurt waffles, make sure to stop back and try those ones as well as they are amazing! Thank you again, we look forward to having you back with us soon.

- Loni Thomas - Innkeeper (innkeeper)

Very comfortable - they've thought of everything!

4.8 on April 01, 2017

This was our second stay; this time on our way from Florida back to Canada. (The exchange rate on our dollar is our only concern, and TNH can't do anything about that.) This time we had the British Empire room. It, ESPECIALLY THE BED, was the most comfortable of our whole trip. As others have noted, the extra amenities are exceptional; they've thought of everything one might need, including a ceiling fan, TV with DVD, etc. in each room; a large selection of movies and library. My wife and I had the breakfast. Delicious! Everything was elegant, yet simple and very tasty. We'll be back; for sure when our Canadian dollar improves.(and hopefully Nonni's - nearby Italian restaurant - will be open the evening we're there!

Innkeeper Response
We apologize for the delayed response to your review. We thank you for the kind words and glad to hear you enjoyed everything. We certainly do hope that the Canadian dollar improves as well so that we can host more Canadians. - Ryan Mercer, Owner

Birthday Getaway

5 on February 26, 2017

Enjoyed our stay at Terra Nova House. Very clean and the service was great. Loni was a terrific host. Great breakfast that we were able to pre-order online. The extras available were a nice touch. Close to the Outlets and less than an hour drive from home. Definitely a place to stay if visiting the area.

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy to hear you had a great birthday getaway! Thank you for your kind review, we greatly appreciate it. Since you are close in distance come back and stay with us soon! Our breakfast menus change from day to day :)

Get Away

5 on January 30, 2017

A friend and I checked in to Terra Nova for a get away to relax and "catch up" with each other's lives. The experience couldn't have been better. Ryan met us when we arrived and was so welcoming. He went over all the information we would need during our stay. He also gave us ideas for restaurant choices. The bed and breakfast was decorated nicely and was extremely clean. They have attended to all details for making your stay comfortable. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you, Ryan. We appreciated the thoughtfulness put into your bed and breakfast. God Bless.

We appreciate the kind words! God Bless! - Ryan Mercer, Owner

4 of us stayed here last weekend and we very much enjoyed our stay! So much that we are already planning our next trip! They were friendly, acommodating, extremely clean. We had a wonderful weekend. The rooms are just beautiful! We felt like royalty. The breakfast and all the other EXTRA touches!

Got the room (with upgrade!) at the same cost as mid-range lodging

5 on December 19, 2016

If you want a lovely atmosphere and non-invasive personal attention, check for availability here first. We had an event that provided breakfast, so we opted out of the breakfast package and paid the same price that a national hotel chain cost, but with personal service, a unique room, (and complimentary gluten-free brownie:) which I rated 5 stars.) And we were fortunate enough to get upgraded!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your kind review. Our no breakfast discount is perfect for those guests that already have breakfast arranged during their stay. We hope to see you for breakfast during your next stay though, as our breakfasts are delicious! We happen to find our gluten free brownie option just as good as our regular brownies too. Again, thank you! - Loni Thomas, Assistant Innkeeper

5 Star B&B

Absolutely a 5 Star Bed and Breakfast! Very clean, excellent service and very personalized to make the quests feel very special! We will definitely come back to stay and we have told some friends and family about how nice the Terra Nova Bed & Breakfast really is. The breakfast was awesome along with the brownies!!

Innkeeper Response
We greatly appreciate your stay and spreading the word to your friends and family! We look forward to serving all of them. And yes, the brownie is AWESOME! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Wish I had more time

5 on November 22, 2016

I stayed at Terra Nova just overnight for a business trip and I really wish I'd had more time to enjoy the property. It was a wonderful experience - check in was easy even though, due to a closure on the turnpike I was WAY later than the window I'd given them. I was able to relax after a difficult drive with a cup of tea and a plate of fruit and cheese. The room and breakfast were wonderful. I don't know when I"ll make it back to Grove City but will definitely stay here if I can.

Innkeeper Response
Although it is impossible for us to make your travel to us relaxing, we most certainly try once you arrive. From the complimentary fruit/chocolate/cheese plate, baked good, hot chocolate/tea/coffee/sodas/juices and snacks galore...we want you to unwind. We do hope that you get back to Grove City soon! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Most Recent Stay at Terra Nova House

5 on October 20, 2016

We have just completed our most recent stay with Ryan. I have lost track of how many times we have been to Terra Nova House, but I believe we have been guests there every year since he opened this B&B. We love the variety of the rooms (each with a different theme), the evening snacks, and the super breakfasts. But most of all we enjoy Ryan as he has become like one of the favorite family members we come to the area to visit each year. We greatly enjoy the light hearted banter we have with him at breakfast each visit. We would stay nowhere else in the Grove City area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words and your continued patronage to our bed and breakfast. We love being able to visit with our guests and build lasting relationships during return visits. Ryan sure is fun to banter with! Again thank you, and we look forward to your next stay!

- Loni Thomas (Assistant Innkeeper)

Wonderful Find

4.2 on October 08, 2016

We loved this Bean and Breakfast. We stayed one night on our Pennsylvania road trip.The welcome was great with baked goods and finger foods awaiting us. Our hosts were extremely helpful and we followed their recommendations for where to eat. The room was amazing and we wished we could have stayed longer. The only disappointment for us was the fact that we were not able to have the breakfast as we made a same-day reservation.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your same-day reservation and one night stay. We are glad that you enjoyed all the little extras that we have. We understand that it is disappointing that we do not offer breakfast for same-day reservations in exchange for 20% off the rate. Let me explain as it will possibly help other potential guests reading this review. Our breakfasts are prepared individually for each guest so that we can accommodate dietary restrictions and food allergies very easily. Guests are sent a breakfast selection email several days in advance. There is a lot of planning that goes on for breakfast. In addition, we typically begin preparing breakfast the morning before; therefore, same-day reservations would require us to prep yet again. As only one person is acting as innkeeper during the day handling all the duties (checkouts, answering phones, grocery shopping, repairs, cleaning, finances, marketing, check-ins) we have found it just too disruptive to try to accommodate same-day reservation guests for breakfast after we have already prepped. Again, same-day reservations (walk-ins) automatically receive our 20% No Breakfast Discount and this is explained when the reservation is made. Several B&B's do not accept walk-ins...we at least figured out a way to do so. Thank you again and we look forward to your next stay with us. - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Excellent B&B

4.8 on September 11, 2016

We were lucky to find this B&B for a last minute get away and were extremely pleased with the facility, service and food. We were pleasantly surprised with the room as we were told (when making reservations) it was the smallest (all other rooms were booked). The Innkeepers were delightful and so was the breakfast. We will definitely return and recommend it to our friends.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your kind review! We look forward to seeing you and your friends again soon with us!

Excellent as always...and Spooky too!

5 on August 30, 2016

This is my third time staying at Terra Nova House. i love this B&B. If they are booked, I always ask to be placed on a waiting list so i can be considered if a room cancellation happens. As was the case this last time I stayed. Each time has been in a different room, which is nice for variety. This last visit was especially interesting. I was having a quiet evening in my room, just reading my book and relaxing. When all of a sudden, my bed starting shaking...quite visibly. And only the bed. Not the night stands or the TV stand...just the bed. It shook for about 30 seconds and then stopped. This went on and off from 8p-10p. I thought I was going crazy. It was indeed spooky. The spirit or ghost or whatever was shaking my bed ceased all activity when I prayed in the name of Jesus for it to leave. I also heard faint music...couldn't make it out exactly. Needless to say, I slept with one eye open. In the morning after a delicious breakfast, Ryan and I had a conversation about the happenings. He said I was the first guest to experience that....but he himself had a similar experience on the same floor, but different room. So if you are a ghost hunter, this is your spot. Ask for a room on the third floor. I always give Terra Nova house two thumbs up. And this time is no different....ghosts and all.:) Dina

Innkeeper Response
We greatly appreciate your repeat business and making use of our waiting list. Although we cannot always accommodate those on the waiting list, some do get lucky. Just as we are smoke free and open flame free, we are also "spirit free". I do understand how the shaking bed could cause such a fright as it did happen to us on the other side of the 3rd floor when we used to live there. We have also heard faint music, whistling and a baby cry. Being very interested in the paranormal, I have concluded that the bed shaking for us was a result of either a train, construction or drilling far off in the distance and the vibration must have been just perfect for our bed and one other piece of furniture to shake for about 30 seconds a couple of nights a week. After we completely renovated the 3rd floor in May 2014 to make the Collegiate Suite and the Lodge rooms, the room layouts were different and no guests had shared with us any experiences of shaking of any kind. Around this time, marcellus shale drilling in the surrounding area was also slowing down. As for the various sounds, we discovered that sound travels very funny within the house due to the 2 staircases leading up to the 2nd floor. Without any fan noise, it is possible to hear conversations very faintly from the 1st floor and outside all the way on the 3rd floor. The music and whistling were a result of the speakers we have on the 1st floor and the baby crying was in the house next door. Sound travels very strange in the house which is why we have white noise machines around the house to help drown out unwanted noise. As to your recent experience, upon further reflection, I am guessing it may have something to do with our new washers and dryers which are in the laundry room below the Lodge. The new washers and dryers (2 stacked units) are a lot more powerful than our prior washer and dryer. It is highly likely that we were running the units during that time and you were experiencing the vibration from the spin cycle. We may have to adjust our spin speed and re-level the units to prevent unwanted vibration. And as to the faint music, I am guessing as you indicated to me that you turned off the A/C unit and had no other "white noise" around you, it was probably the 1st floor music that you were hearing. Or...it could all be paranormal! Any paranormal investigators are more than happy to check out the place; however, I think you will be in for an uneventful night and come to the same conclusions I have. Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

I reserved the British Empire suite for my Aunt and Uncles 50th wedding anniversary and from the reservation to check out Ryan was a perfect host. They decorated the room with our decorations and they LOVED it. This is the friendliest, cleanest and most gorgeous place, you have to visit to enjoy the experience. And the brownies are to die for. Thank You Ryan for making their day special.

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy we could help in your Aunt and Uncle celebrating their anniversary! Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We set high standards for our b&b, and we are delighted you feel we met those standards. Looking forward to your next visit for another to die for brownie!!

Home away from home!

5 on July 11, 2016

The Terra Nova Bed and Breakfast was not only clean and homey, but offered a beautiful, safe place to stay while away from home. Our meals were delicious and all the "extras" were a bonus. You have thought of everything to make our stay perfect!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your stay and review. We have tried to think of everything that you would possibly need during your stay...and even some things you would never have thought of! We look forward to serving you during your next visit to Grove City, PA. - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

- Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper (innkeeper)

lovely place

5 on June 30, 2016

Their brownies are worth a detour in your trip! And it's a very relaxing, cozy and homey but professional and convenient place to spend some time.

Innkeeper Response
Ah the brownies! We wish we could take credit for making the brownies, but all that goes to Pastries by Andrea in Mercer, PA. When you find something that works, repeat it. That's why the first evening, you are almost guaranteed to have a Pastries by Andrea brownie waiting for you with your name on it! If you stay multiple nights, you will get to enjoy a different Pastries by Andrea creation. And yes, it is very difficult not to eat all we have in stock! We look forward to serving you another brownie soon! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Outstanding B&B -- everything a picky woman would want!

5 on June 05, 2016

We had a best friend weekend and stayed for two nights. I've stayed at B&Bs all over the world and this has to be the cleanest and most graciously appointed. The breakfast was amazing and we enjoyed every nook and amenity. The brownie was to die for. Ryan and Loni took great care of us.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for enjoying your BFF weekend with us at TNHBNB. We are thrilled that you consider us one of the best bed and breakfasts in the world! We look forward to your future weekends with us as much as you look forward to another brownie! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Great place/wonderful service

5 on May 26, 2016

This is a wonderful place to stay and the service is excellent! Clean, comfortable with very nice touches including snacks, sweets and coffee. The breakfast is excellent with a good selection. Ryan helped me make restaurant reservations and gave me great recommendations for food and things to do. I have stayed in almost every room over 4 years and can say that they are all great! Ryan also notified us when we left something behind. You will never get that personnel service a Hotel chain. Do yourself a favor when traveling in the Grove City PA area and STAY HERE!

We greatly appreciate your loyalty over the years! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Accommodation to the max!

5 on March 22, 2016

I had the pleasure of staying at the Terra Nova while on business in the area. My schedule and reservations were a bit out of the normal, but Ryan was able to meet my every need and accommodation. Although I opted out of having the breakfast, I can tell you that the rooms I stayed in (especially The Lodge) were extremely clean and comfortable. The cheese plate and baked good were a nice touch as well. Will most definitely stay here again if I am in the area!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words! We are very pleased to hear that you had such a great experience and found everything to be clean and comfortable. We look forward to seeing you again - next time make sure to get one of our delicious breakfasts. Thanks again! - Loni Thomas, Assistant Innkeeper

Charming B & B

4.0 on March 13, 2016

My sisters and I stayed in the English Rose room when we recently visited Grove City College. We were extremely impressed with this excellent accommodation. Ryan, the Innkeeper, has thought of every detail to make our stay comfortable. The Inn is charming and super clean - we liked that it is located so close to the college. We will highly recommend Terra Nova House to all our friends, and will chose to stay there whenever we visit Grove City.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us while visiting Grove City College, only a few blocks away from the B&B. We are pleased that you found the B&B charming and clean. We look forward to your future visits and meeting all your friends! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

- Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper (innkeeper)

Fantastic stay!

5 on March 09, 2016

During a recent college visit my son and I stayed here. The room was neat and attractive but the food was definitely a highlight. The brownies at bedtime and the pumpkin waffles for breakfast were amazing. Also received fantastic service including returning a book to me which I left behind. Would highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us as your son visited Grove City College. We look forward to your son accepting and your many future visits. We are glad that you enjoyed the huge brownie made by Pastries by Andrea from Mercer, PA...we agree that they are AMAZING! Until next time! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Best B&B we have ever stayed at!!

5 on March 06, 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Outstanding food and accommodations! The innkeeper took the time to come and chat. Lonnie prepared a delicious breakfast for us. All our expectations were met, and then some. We will definitely tell our friends in Canada about this fabulous B&B. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!

We are happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and that all your expectations were met! We look forward to your next stay...and, yes, please spread the word in Canada! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Home away from home!!!

5 on March 03, 2016

About 12 years ago my sister in law and I started doing a Dec. "getaway". Some years we have a lot of shopping some not so much. We have stayed at many of the Inns, hotels and B & B's in the area. Two years ago we found Terra Nova! How very lucky for us!!! We will not stay anywhere else!! The accommodations are beautiful, clean and relaxing! Ryan and Molly are the ultimate hosts. From the time you are welcomed at the door until the time to leave they make you feel like you are staying at a favorite relatives in a beautiful home! The last two years we have added Olde Grove City Winter Wine Walk in Feb. Such a welcome break for the doldrums of winter. The breakfast we enjoy each morning is incredibly delicious!!! We highly recommend it, and would not think of staying anywhere else!!! Kathie K.

Innkeeper Response
We greatly appreciate your repeat business and for not wanting to stay anywhere else! It is our goal to make everyone feel as though they are at their home away from home...and to spoil them as well with all the little extras! We look forward to your future stays! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

What more to ask for!!!!

5 on January 24, 2016

We could go on and explain all the great things this bed and breakfast offered and we would be here for awhile writing this. We have been to several Bed and Breakfast and this place has it down to all the details anyone could ask for. The Mercer's have thought of everything. Thank you for a great stay!

Outstanding B & B

4.8 on January 19, 2016

Found this wonderful place while looking for a travel stop 1/2 way between Indiana and New York. Was pleasantly surprised by the incredible value for such a beautiful place!!! Everything was beyond our expectations and we've stayed at numerous B&B's over the years. This one is the absolute best so far. The owner (Ryan) was super and went WAY over and beyond to make us comfortable, he even carried our bags!!! When you order breakfast, be aware that when they say all portions are large unless you specify otherwise, THEY ARE LARGE ! Not only were they large but the finest quality - one of the best breakfasts we've ever had. Kuerig Coffee machines on both floors, ice, even 2 snacks waiting for us - cheese, crackers, and fruit plate and a HUGE delicious brownie. A variety of bagged snacks also in the common library area, again, all free. Quiet, comfortable, and (I think) underpriced but don't tell them. Don't hesitate to stay here - you will not regret it. Ross and Linda B. Everything was very clean, beautiful, and tastefully decorated

Innkeeper Response
We are so pleased you had a wonderful stay with us. Whatever we can do to make your stay as comfortable as possible is our top priority. As always, we will make sure you do not leave hungry!! Don't worry, we didn't see the comment on our great value. ;-) We look forward to seeing you at your next visit!! Thanks again. - Loni Thomas, Assistant Innkeeper

Wonderful Little Bed and Breakfast.

5 on December 15, 2015

We stayed at this Bed and Breakfast. We absolutely loved it. The rooms were beautiful. Food was delicious. Owner was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed talking to him. It was so much more than we thought it would be. It didn't even compare to others we have stayed at. It exceeded our expectations. We will be returning.

"Attention to Details"

4.2 on October 30, 2015

We had the good fortune of staying at the Terra Nova House during our recent trip to visit Grove City College. We were warmly greeted and made to feel welcome right from the start. You know Innkeeper gives attention to details when you discover extra towels in the bathroom, a special fruit and cheese plate, variety of snacks and beverages prepared just for you. We loved our room cozy, clean and well decorated. The breakfasts were scrumptious and conversation with staff most delightful.

Overwhelmed in Grove City

4.8 on September 30, 2015

With the only real B&B in a town one would think that the effort to please just would not be there....for Terra Nova this is not the case. The owner is present, supportive and provides the personal service that anyone would find first class. The appointments of the rooms is outstanding as is the décor and the breakfast and amenities presented would be something found in 5-star hotels. Stay and enjoy. The Willson's

Wonderful place to rest, relax, relate

4.8 on August 24, 2015

After dropping off our youngest at GCC, we decided to celebrate being empty nesters by spending a night at Terra Nova house. Ryan met us promptly at 3 PM, showed us around, carried our bags, and made us feel at home. There are so many ways that Ryan makes you feel welcome, I can't cover them all, but for me, the access to coffee, juice and water 24x7 is primary. My wife on the other hand, loved the 2nd floor deck and the gluten-free brownie - just for her. Our only regret is not staying longer.

exceptional B&B

5 on August 09, 2015

wonderful place to stay. The owners have taken care of every detail to make Terra Nova House special. I was greeted with a fruit and cheese plate and a home baked brownie. The place is clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast is gormet.I stay here on business every time I am in the area.

Celebrating our 47th anniversary

5 on July 18, 2015

We were presented with a gift certificate to the Terra Nova B&B and chose to use it to celebrate our anniversary. It was a lovely get-away. The accommodations were excellent, the food delicious (and generous) and every need was considered. Ryan was a very considerate host. We had a great time.

Great Experience!

5 on June 02, 2015

This was our first visit to Terra Nova House and it was fabulous! The innkeeper immediately made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The amenities were endless! The innkeeper must have thought of everything and anything to make our stay comfortable! Our room and the entire property was meticulously cared for and very clean. The choice of breakfast times and foods was a very nice option. It seemed that every 5 minutes we were saying "Wow." We will definitely stay again and I have already recommended Terra Nova House to at least half a dozen people!

Impeccable A+

5 on May 31, 2015

Four of us stayed for a girls weekend and we cannot say enough positive. Ryan and Molly go out of their way to make you comfortable. I've stayed at other b&b and this far surpasses any others

first time Bed/Breakfast was outstanding. We celebrated our 31st anniversary and this was worth the stay.

5 on May 12, 2015

The Management welcomed you with open arms and the best hospitality we have had yet. wunderbar.

Outstanding stay!

4.8 on May 09, 2015

This being my first B and B stay, I was not entirely certain what to expect, but my host Ryan made it a wonderful experience! The rooms are extremely clean and themed with individual personalities. Ryan goes to great lengths to ensure the comfort of his guests including such thoughtful touches as readily available snacks and a delicious baked good. Beware, the lemon bars are habit forming! Breakfast is served on time and extremely well prepared. I was fortunate enough to try the waffles that were housed in a mountain of fresh fruit, yogurt, with just the right amount of chocolate and whipped cream. They were absolutely fantastic as was the courtesy and kindness of the host. If you are in the area or are just and enthusiast of B&Bs this is an absolute must!

A memorable experience

4.0 on April 14, 2015

A great Bed (very comfy) & Breakfast (absolutely delicious, especially the French Toast Casserole!) All the comforts of home await your visit, right down to the cute Shampoo & Body Bar of soap. Ryan is at your beck and call for any need. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return on our next trip to the Grove City Area. Carole & Dale

Oatmeal Lovers

4.8 on March 26, 2015

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

Very enjoyable and comfortable stay. We will certainly recommend this place to others and will stay here again if we are in the area...

5 on March 18, 2015

The atmosphere was very homey and I never had to do any cleaning or cooking!

2nd visit with Ryan

5 on March 07, 2015

This was our 2nd visit to Slippery Rock University and a mother/daughter weekend. Ryan took good care of us and the place is fabulous! Not to mention the breakfast!! It's the only place we will stay when visiting the area!


5 on March 06, 2015

Excellent place to stay! Close to an outstanding outlet, too! Convenient to two great small college's. You will definitely appreciate these accommodations. Choose any room, too! Updated, well kept and an owner who pays attention to your every need. A special thanks to Ryan and looking forward to my next stay!

our first BnB experience

5 on February 09, 2015

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!

Great, relaxing stay!

5 on February 08, 2015

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.

Overnight getaway

5 on December 07, 2014

we recently stayed overnight at the Terra Nova for my birthday and what a lovely surprise! The rooms are beautifully decorated and inviting. The delicious breakfast topped off our short stay. thank you again for your hospitality. hope to see you again soon! Gary & Sharon Pittsburgh, PA

Terra Nova House Stay

5 on November 12, 2014

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.

Highly Recommended

5 on November 10, 2014

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!

It Couldn't Have Been Better.

5 on November 09, 2014

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.

wonderful stay

5 on October 28, 2014

hosts were great, awesome breakfast. would definitely go here again if we are in the area.

Peaceful Getaway:)

5 on October 22, 2014

This Bed and Breakfast was a treasure to find, quiet, cozy, it lacked for nothing, the owners are extremely accommodating, the breakfast was perfect, we booked again that morning before we left for next year. Thank You!!!

The Best Place to Stay at Grove City

4.2 on October 16, 2014

Ryan & Molly think of all the details and make every effort to make your stay comfortable. Loved the special touches like fruit/cheese plate, chocolate and brownie for snacks, and a full breakfast served on linen was delicious!

Fantastic get away!

5 on October 14, 2014

I read reviews online prior to making our reservation and everyone was right! This is a must stay at Bed and Breakfast. Ryan goes above and beyond with communication. The evening snack plate and special treat were a welcome delight. We stayed in the British Empire room. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. An added bonus was Grove City College had fireworks after their evening football game and we had a birds eye view from our room for their spectacular display. There are snacks and drinks in the parlor available 24/7 along with drinks available on each floor. The breakfast was fabulous and we were served as soon as we sat at the table. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Excedptional B & B

5 on October 08, 2014

Beautiful B & B. Extremely comfortable and clean with outstanding food and amenities. tau here every opportunity that we get. Attending Grove City College Homecoming 2 days early just to stay here.

Fabulous place wonderful people!

5 on July 13, 2014

This was a perfectly lovely place. It was charming and beautiful. We stayed in the top suite room. Ryan and the staff could not have done more to make our stay better. The food was great but the hospitality was beyond any expectations. The afternoon snacks of chocolates and fruits,I and the lemon tart.. Wow!! what more can I say. We celebrated our 50th annivesary there.these last 2 days. Could not have been better. All. The little shops and Wendal August made it even better. Ryan did not know it was our anniversary. So fabulous!! Dale and Irene

Best weekend ever!

5 on July 09, 2014

My fiance and I stayed at Terra Nova House B&B. Our first time at any B&B. Ryan was a perfect host, helping me make this the best birthday weekend my fiance ever had. He was kind and allowed a late check in as we had to come from nearly 400 miles away. Breakfast we absolutely perfect, my other half is a chef and very picky about his food, he absolutely adored the breakfasts we were served and is even replicating the recipes as breakfast specials at his restaurant. Coffee, snacks, movies, we couldn't ask for more. The atmosphere was very friendly, clean and peaceful. We had the opportunity to meet Ryan's beautiful wife and children, very lovely family. He offered to help us with anything we needed and was even nice and helped us carry our bags up. We are definitely staying at Terra Nova House again this summer. We have been talking about doing this every summer from now on. We definitely enjoyed our stay. In our opinion, 5 stars is not enough justice for Terra Nova House B&B.

Fabulous Find for friends!

5 on July 02, 2014

4 of us stayed here for a girls night and we were so surprised with all the details of our stay! The room, cooked breakfast, personalized treat (best brownie ever) will definitely make us go back!

Excellent Gem

5 on June 30, 2014

Wonderful accommodations, great food, very nice rooms impeccably clean! Highly recommended. Could not ask for more.


4.6 on June 21, 2014

we enjoyed the room, very comfortable. Ryan could not have been a more gracious host. The snacks were fantastic. We plan to return to be pampered again. Oh I almost forgot the great breakfast. THANKS

We would love to stay longer next time!

5 on June 17, 2014

The Caribbean room was outstanding. The Terra Nova was an oasis after 2 days of driving and one icky hotel room. The service and breakfast were wonderful! Thank you Ryan for following your passion and sharing your story.

Other B & B's Should Take Notice of Ryan Mercer!

5 on April 27, 2014

We just got home from our time at Terra Nova and I wanted to review RIGHT AWAY! Terra Nova is BY FAR the best B & B I have stayed in. I am usually a bit disappointed when I visit a B & B because it is different from the web site. In this case, though, the web site will never do justice to this B & B. The innkeeper has owned this B & B for three years and he is a quick learn. He anticipated EVERY need you might have and had accommodated for those needs. Squeaky clean and fresh smelling, neat & organized, tasty snack centers, coffee stations, great food and he is expanding --we got a sneak peak! Amazing family suite and additional room. Good thing, because he is going to be very busy. My husband and I visit Grove City because our son is in college, but he is graduating and we were lamenting that we might not get to go back. However, we decided that the drive is worth the B & B....we will DEFINITELY go back again. Great job Ryan Mercer!

Details, details, details!

4.8 on February 25, 2014

Amazing how Ryan has paid attention to details of guests' needs! My husband and I stayed for an overnight getaway and immediately fell in love with Terra Nova and all its charm and hospitality! We can't say enough about the comfortable atmosphere, the over the top breakfast (yum), the nightlights, snacks, cheese chocolate and grape plate, and can't forget the awesome brownie for two! We're looking at a future date to stay!

Fantastic Place!

5 on February 17, 2014

What a fantastic experience! We have stayed with Ryan twice, while visiting Grove City College. Ryan and the staff were simply wonderful. Everything was clean, quiet, and well managed. He even cleaned the overnight snow off our car in the lot! All of our needs were well thought out and planned for. And then there was the breakfast - the meal was cooked to order and to perfection. I simply can't say enough nice things about Ryan and the entire experience at Terra Nova house.

Perfect in every way!

4.8 on January 31, 2014

We stayed at Tara Nova and they have really thought of everything. Wine glasses and opener, flashlights, Kerig coffee machine upstairs and down. We have stayed at many B&B,s and this is the first one to ever give us choices for breakfast, selected the night before. The best part was communication, right down to the check out procedure," all we need is a handshake and the key ". Don't miss an opportunity to try this one, you will be glad you did. We will return!

Fantastic! Best Customer Service Anywhere

5 on December 25, 2013

I have only had the pleasure of staying at the Terra Nova house just once. However, it will be a night a remember for the rest of my life. I have proposed to my fiancé there. Ryan, was more than accommodating throughout the entire process. I spoke to him on the phone and explained what I was doing and he was more than willing to help out anyway possible to make it an unforgettable evening. The place was great. The rooms have their own theme and they very nicely kept. Extremely clean and in great condition. The food, was amazing. "Hats off to the chef" as they say. Not to mention they had an incredible amount of k-cups, and snacks around to keep you satisfied. If you are considering staying anywhere else in grove city, don't. No need to look any further. The Terra Nova House has changed the way I view B&Bs forever, and will for you as well.

Great getaway!

5 on November 28, 2013

We had our first night away in 2 years and picked the Terra Nova House. Fantastic choice! We were very comfortable, enjoyed the little extra's and the service was perfect. We had a quiet evening, pleasant sleep, and breakfast was phenomenal! We highly recommend staying here. We also did some shopping in grove city and Ryan gave us a number of coupons and recommendations that really made our trip that much better. We appreciated our getaway and are looking forward to going back soon!

Long Weekend

4.2 on November 21, 2013

My wife and I decided to get a head start on Christmas shopping and celebrate our birthdays in Grove City. Typically when we go away together we look for a B&B. On this trip we selected Terra Nova House. Over our long weekend we were very happy with service and amenities. Everything was well maintained and clean, Location was easy to find and convenient to get to Outlet locations. Ryan was very helpful suggesting local places to eat and even provided information on a day trip to Pittsburgh. Breakfast choices were delicious and were given evening snacks and treats to share each night. Overall was a great stay. We would highly recommend staying at Terra Nova House when traveling to Grove City, PA. Dana & Mindy

Home Away From Home

5 on November 14, 2013

Fellow Traveler, If you are ever in the area of Grove City, Penn. you owe it to yourself to stay at Terra Nova House Bed & Breakfast on West Poplar Street. My wife and I are Ryan’s guest every time we are in the neighborhood. It is by far the best and friendliest place to relax and rest. It is our “home away from home”. Everything is attended to in great detail. Terra Nova is not only immaculate, comfortably elegant and welcoming but Ryan also serves an outstanding home made breakfast in the morning. There is always a delicious fresh brownie waiting for you when you arrive and there are many other treats that you just don’t find in first class hotels or any other B&B. Terra Nova is in a class by itself. It is first class all the way and priced at a very affordable rate. If anyone wants to know what a real five star stay is like, you must visit Terra Nova, Grove City. It’s an absolute winner. November 14, 2013

One of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed at!

4.8 on October 09, 2013

I was truly amazed at all the little extras the innkeeper provided, especially the nightly fruit/cheese plate, the amazing baked goods available in the afternoon/evening, the huge assortment of complimentary snacks, and the variety of choices for breakfast each day. I also liked having the choice of time for my breakfast. Such a nice little perk!

Great B&B

5 on September 04, 2013

We stayed a couple of nights and had a great experience. The rooms are clean and have all the comforts of home. The breakfast: different every day and each day was better than the one before. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who plans on visiting the Grove City area. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful B&B

5 on August 12, 2013

Ryan & Molly are thoughtful and constantly working to improve their guests' experiences! They offer a variety of breakfast options cooked from scratch, as well as Keurigs and snacks. Rooms are cleaned every day, and carpets, matresses, etc. are regularly steamed. I really enjoyed my stay at the Tera Nova House. Well worth the trip.

Fantastic First Time

5 on August 10, 2013

This was our first stay in a B&B and apparently we picked one of the best. It's a very nice house with interesting rooms (at least the ones we saw) and a lot of charm. According to the other more experienced B&B vacationers Ryan runs a top notch establishment and we may have spoiled ourselves if we stay in other B&B's in the future. He's a super friendly guy and seems to really enjoy running the TNH. He makes a really good breakfast (especially the Fruity Waffles). We'll definitely go back.

A Quick Getaway

4.4 on August 08, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Terra Nova House for a quick getaway weekend. We had been there many years ago and thought that we would give it another shot. Our stay this time was much improved from our first experience. The owner was very friendly and helpful. He was willing to go above and beyond to make us comfortable. He even called a restaurant to set up dinner reservations. I especially like the complimentary coffee, fruit and cheese tray and baked goods. Ryan was very personable and helpful throughout our stay. I liked the choices of three options for breakfast-and the portions were more than filling. My husband and I look forward staying there again sometime in the future!

Exceptional Bed and Breakfast Experience in Grove City, PA

5 on July 22, 2013

Attention to details earned Terra Nova House at least five stars in every category. Most exceptional was the service. We brought a party of four generations for a local reunion. It was the great-grandmother's first bed and breakfast experience. It will be a challenge to match!

A New Convert to B&B!

5 on July 18, 2013

If all B&B's were like the "Terra Nova House", I would never stay at a hotel chain again. What a wonderful experience in every category. I've never met a more gracious host than Ryan Mercer. Tom & Judy Brown Rising Sun, MD

Treated like royalty!

5 on July 14, 2013

This was our first experience ever staying at a bed and breakfast, but we decided to give it a try since the online reviews were so great, and the experience exceeded our expectations! Ryan could not have been a better host, he always made sure we had everything we needed, but went above and beyond, from offering to make dinner reservations, to checking traffic reports for our route, to insisting on carrying our luggage to our car. He was very professional, yet super hospitable. We stayed in the British Empire room. We really enjoyed the décor and the room was absolutely immaculate (with a newly remodeled bathroom as well.) The breakfasts were so delicious and the portions so generous we had to skip lunch! The extra thoughtful touches such as a dessert from a local bakery and the fruit and cheese tray prepared for us as well as a stocked fridge and Keurig were just the icing on the cake. You will be treated like royalty at the Terra Nova! Ryan certainly went out of his way to make our stay perfect. When we get the chance we will definitely return!

Excellent Getaway!

5 on July 11, 2013

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Terra Nova House. Ryan did everything he could to make us feel right at home. The room was very nice and clean. If your ever in that area....give them a try....you will not be disappointed. Rich & Charlene

Ultimate Bed and Breakfast Experience

5 on July 02, 2013

Just stayed there for Canadian long weekend. The house and the old town are charming; the porches take you back to another time; the treats/refreshments are endless and the breakfast is amazing. We had the savoury selection on day one and then the sweet on day two. To die for! However, the most outstanding element is the host, Ryan. Talk about customer service. Welcoming, helpful with a great sense of humour. You could not ask for more. Sharon + Theresa X 2

Great stay

5 on June 28, 2013

As I always like to provide some "room for improvement" ideas in my reviews, However, we cannot find any for our stay at the Terra Nova. Beautiful and comfortable rooms, creative and delicious breakfasts with variety, cheese/fruit platters each day, snacks, security and great hospitality. Ryan was there when needed and offered great suggestions for things to do. Don't even think of not staying here if it is within the scope of your travels.

Felt Like Home!

4.8 on June 27, 2013

Our stay at Terra Nova House was a kick off to a mother and daughter road trip. Every detail was meet and exceeded. The charm of the house was quaint and very clean. The service was outstanding. From the abundance of snacks to the wonderful breakfast , movies, Netflix the list goes on. I work with hotels and this B&B offered more "bang for your buck" and made you feel like you were the only guests. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to having a truly enjoyable experience! Thank you Terra Nova!


5 on June 17, 2013

FANTASTIC!!! By far one of the most hospitable, accommodating, and friendly stays I have had at any establishment. Would recommend to everyone and anyone!

Great B&B - a gem!

5 on June 14, 2013

My daughter and I stayed at Terra Nova House for two nights as part of a "mother-daughter getaway weekend." Ryan and staff could not have been more accommodating. He thought of everything, from flashlights if the power went out, to a cheese/fruit and chocolate tray for a snack. The breakfasts was delicious, the room was clean and quiet. While we spent most of our time at Grove City Outlets, Ryan encouraged us to explore downtown Grove City and area restaurants. I'm glad he did. The downtown area is quaint with some surprises. Nonni's and Tavern on the Square provided delicious home-made food. I liked how the local merchants support each other. In all, this was a winner! I strongly recommend.

2nd visit to Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast

Wonderful B&B

5 on May 28, 2013

My boyfriend brought me to Terra Nova House for my birthday. What a beautiful surprise. Ryan greeted us, and me with a Happy Birthday, that helped us immediately feel welcome. This was my first time at a B&B and this was outstanding. This is a beautiful little B&B tucked away in a nice little neighborhood. I know we will return and I will encourage my family and friends to visit too.

A wonderful stay

5 on May 13, 2013

A wonderful stay on a quiet street was a great getaway for me. Ryan is very gracious and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Less fuss and more class. The complimentary fruit, cheese and chocolate plate was very nice after a hard day of shopping. The college and restaurants are within walking distance. Breakfast is fabulous- I recommend the waffles and fruit. My sister and I also appreciated the nicely furnished porches where we could relax. I will be recommending this B & B to our friends.

Beautiful B&B

4.4 on May 02, 2013

Beautiful house. Very clean & comfortable. Ryan was very accomodating and helpful in suggesting dinner ideas. Breakfast was delicious. We will definintely recommend to friends and definitely will return!


4.8 on April 30, 2013

This place is the cream of the crop. Don't overlook the chance to get a very affordable massage right in your room! My massage therapist was professional, attentive, strong and silent! I will stay at Terra Nova House again...if I can get in...they are about to become the most popular B and B in the area, I'm certain of that.

Excellent B&B

4.4 on April 09, 2013

We have stayed over the years at a number of B&Bs. This one rates very highly. The owner was very accommodating and anxious to please. We were offered three choices for breakfast. The breakfast we chose was nourishing and food was abundant. The entire B&B was tastefully decorated. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless. Overall it was a relaxing and enjoyable stay at Terra Nova B&B.

A Real Gem

5 on April 08, 2013

If you want comfort, quality, and class in a Grove City stay, you can't do better than Terra Nova House. The Mercers have taken a beautiful Victorian home in a quiet neighborhood near the Grove City College campus and made it a place to relax, retreat, romance--and definitely eat. Their breakfasts present a remarkable variety of healthy and flavorful options, delivered in generous portions with real pizazz. Each sleeping room has a unique Atlantic World theme, with handsome and whimsical decor, and all the comforts of home--including Netflix subscriptions and a substantial book and DVD library. The public spaces are comfortable and available day and night--living room, coffee makers, refrigerators stocked with soft drinks and water, and a cornucopia of quality snacks, many fresh made. The Mercers are friendly and attentive without being obtrusive, and one feels safe, welcome and comfortable in their home. A real gem!

Looking for Colleges - Great Discovery

5 on April 02, 2013

Pittsburgh, what are you waiting for? Not far from you is the delightful retreat any city dweller would love. Travelling around the area, while looking at colleges (including Grove City College), we discovered this quintessential B&B. It's not just quaint - it's first class. We stayed in the bright, cheerful Rose Room. All of the touches and furniture added to the atmosphere. The bathroom was newly redone. While keeping the feeling of the old house, the updated rooms and bathrooms are perfect. Ryan showed us the other rooms, too. They're all winners. Ryan makes a great breakfast (ordered the night before). We ate off of each others plate - I had the baked egg dish and my daughter had light waffles with fruit. This is truly a memorable B&B. As an Aspen, Colorado hotelier I can confidently say that this is a first class experience.

Wonderful First B&B Stay!

5 on March 18, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Terra Nova House for one night, and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer! The room was clean, the food was amazing, and our host was attentive yet unobtrusive. We had a great time, and I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a much better alternative to a hotel!

Elegant, lovely, romantic bed and breakfast,

5 on March 17, 2013

This B&B was very romantic, elegant, relaxing, cozy, and great service! The hospitality was beyond 5 stars, the extra's were wonderful, extremely accomodating and it was very clean and quiet. The breakfast was delicious and I loved having netflix and wireless in our room. It was worth every dollar and more! We recommend this to anyone and will certainly return some day!

Loved it!!

5 on March 15, 2013

I would definitely recommend staying at the Terra Nova House. Everything was thought of down to the last detail. I stayed there after having driven a long distance and the room was so comfortable and homey and was a pleasure to stay in. The innkeeper was friendly, polite and helpful and the homemade breakfast was delicious. I will be going back for sure!!!

Elegant B&B

4.8 on January 27, 2013

Ryan and Molly Mercer's Terra Nova House is a beautiful, peaceful, elegant B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay and plan to return many more times. Ryan makes you feel at home with endless hot drinks and snacks. The meat/cheese/chocolate plate with your name on it makes you feel like a celebrity. Our baked good for the evening was a rich chocolate drizzled brownie that melted in your mouth. Our stay in the British Empire Room made us feel like we were royalty living in England. The newly renovated bathroom was spacious and beautiful! The bed was extremely comfortable and cozy. The selection of food for breakfast was impressive. You were allowed as many sides as you wanted. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. My in-room massage was very relaxing and comfortable. Ryan's professionalism, knowledge and kindness are very appreciated. He made dinner reservation for us and had printed directions for the restaurant. Ryan and Molly's love for B&B's is very evident in the way they run theirs. It's very nice to see people pursuing and loving their passion. May God Bless the Terra Nova House family and all their guests!

Owner has thought of everthing

4.6 on December 10, 2012

The owner has thought of everything. After staying at the Terra Nova I'm not sure why anyone would choose to stay in a hotel.

Best of the Best!!

5 on December 04, 2012

Another amazing stay!! Thanks again Ryan and Molly - already planning another return!!

Terra Nova House

5 on December 03, 2012

This was our best stay in Grove City. It far exceeds what we have experienced in any of the area hotels. We will definitely be back.

A Gem of a Bed and Breakfast

4.2 on November 18, 2012

Our stay at Terra Nova was brief--only overnight--but it was a memorable experience. Ryan, one of the owners, was especially attentive to all the details surrounding our visit, and was pleasant and professional. The house itself is beautiful and quiet, considering it's right in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Ryan made reservations for us at a local Italian restaurant, which we thoroughly enjoyed. There were snacks and drinks available, and our breakfasts were delicious. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Terra Nova Treat

5 on November 10, 2012

We loved our stay at Terra Nova. Our room was wonderful and very clean. Our innkeeper, Ryan Mercer was very kind and helpful. The bed and breakfast is convenient to many shopping areas and we would not hestitate to stay there again.

Exceptional visit!

5 on November 08, 2012

Molly and Ryan are third family we have known to own this beautiful home. Our recent visit was absolutely the best! I miss the big round table from the Cliff and Janice days, but the dining experience was very warm and cozy! Exceptional amenities and very accommodating to our specific needs. The pumpkin waffles were perfect and bacon cooked just how I like it. Fruit, cheese, and chocolate plate as well as muffins, and snacks were unexpected but greatly appreciated. Look forward to next visit!

Exceptional service and accommodations!!!

5 on November 06, 2012

We loved our stay stay at the Terra Nova House Bed & Breakfast - Ryan Mercer (Inn Keeper) saw to every detail - to make sure our stay was perfect - and he succeeded. 24-hour coffee and tea, huge chocolate brownie waiting for us, cheese, grapes and chocolates ready for when we wanted them. He had our dinner reservations, reminded us to turn our clocks back and was exceptionally hospitable. The breakfast was superior - I highly recommend Ryan's pumpkin waffles!!! This place is a MUST VISIT!!! We will be back!

A wonderful place to stay.

5 on November 04, 2012

A beautiful home with spotless spacious rooms. Ryan was a wonderful host. We will definitely be recommending Terra Nova to friends and family. The attention to detail made our stay an exceptional one. Just wish we could've stayed longer!

Great B and B

5 on November 01, 2012

Will definately stay again if in the area. The breakfast was very good, and all the little extras were a very nice surprise. Ryan was very helpful and definately gets it when it comes to making a good impression..

A truly great place to stay - Terra Nova House

5 on October 28, 2012

This was our furst stay with Ryan and Molly at the Terra Nova house and we could not have felt more at home. This home is spotless, the bed was very comfortable and all of the "treats" made our stay extra special. Breakfast was delicious and showed the same care that went into every part of our stay. We look forward to our next visit with Ryan Molly. - Jim and Sue

Great Fall Visit

4.6 on October 12, 2012

We loved the many little touches that raised the standard.


5 on October 07, 2012

My stay here was so enjoyable, I can't wait to go back!Terra Nova House is by far, the best B & B that I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Grove City, PA turned out to be a real gem, also. People in the town were very friendly. It was like stepping back in time -- small town America at its finest!

A dlightful stay

5 on October 07, 2012

We stayed at the Terra Nova in early September over our anniversary. We had been there a summer before for a reunion. We liked it then but now there are new younger owners and it is even better! We loved the Keurig coffee that was available anytime. You are provided w/ a breakfast menu and you can choose from several items. The only problem there was to pick one. We were glad we were there for 2 nights. Everything is immaculate. Our room provided 2 terry cloth robes. The location is perfect...quiet and close enough to walk to the charming downtown and if you are a walker you can walk as far as the college campus. Grove City College is one of the most beautiful small college campuses anywhere! Also the community park is a short walking distance too. We hope to be able to return again for another visit.

Total excellence

5 on October 05, 2012

We heartily recommend this B&B..everything was just great and hosts were very friendly and helpful ..the fruit and cheese platter were a real treat in the evening...it was just Great to stay there and are sure to go back again sometime...C&M. From Canada

Two day trip to Grove City

4.4 on October 04, 2012

We stay at B&Bs often, and were more than pleased with our stay at TNH. Ryan is a very congenial host and bent over backwards to address a problem with the wireless router. We definitely would stay at the TNH if we are in the area again. John K

One of the Best we ever were in

5 on September 17, 2012

Warm welcome and great hosts ..it was most enjoyable being there..breakfasts were wonderful not one negative thing about Terra Nova will sure recommend it to anyone we knows will be in area..Guests from Canada..C&M

An excellent B&B!

5 on September 15, 2012

We had a wonderful two day stay at Terra Nova House! Ryan, our host, had anticipated every need. Very clean, beautiful and relaxing setting with many extras. You will not regret staying in this beautiful Victorian home.

Anniversary surprise

5 on September 04, 2012

We have stayed at numerous B&B's during our 43 years of marriage, but none compared to the Terra Nova House. From the house itself to the owners hospitality, EVERYTHING was exceptional. The rooms were comfortable and quiet, the food was wonderful, the snacks and coffee provided were a surprise, and the atmosphere was serene. Given the chance, enjoy the opportunity to stay at this quaint place.

Rare Find

5 on September 04, 2012

There is a peace of mind instilled when you see things taken care of and clean – a sense that someone cares. That notion was confirmed for us when we came back to the B&B to find little niceties waiting for us and when we came down for breakfast and found ourselves so well taken care of, down to the details. We left with a sense of satisfaction that every dollar we spent for our stay was returned in the way of service. So nice to see people who love what they do.

A Return Customer

5 on August 25, 2012

Terra Nova House is our home away from home. Ryan and Molly know how to make guests feel comfortable. On arrival you are treated to a platter of fresh fruit and chocolate. Tea, coffee, water and snacks are available as well. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. Ryan offers a breakfast choice of sweet or savory (best to stay two days in order to try both dishes), juice and a side dish - yum ! I'll be disappointed when our daughter graduates from GCC, we'll just have to find another reason to stay at Terra Nova House which won't be difficult. Ray and Mary L, NJ

Five Star in Every Way

5 on August 21, 2012

We have stayed in several B&B's and this was by far the best. The rooms were detailed and charming. The location was super convenient to the downtown (walked to a lovely Italian restaurant one night), as well as the outlet mall (a 5-10 minute drive). The food was outstanding, catored specifically to you (including gluten free selections), with a variety of choices for breakfast, and even a choice of time. Above all, the hosts, Ryan and Molly, were incredibly welcoming and intent on making your stay comfortable and memorable. I will definitely stay again and have already recommended it to friends and collegues.

Excellent stay

4.6 on August 14, 2012

Overall wonderful experience: attentive and accommodating innkeepers; clean and comfortable rooms; and generous and tasty food and drinks. Highly recommended.


4.4 on August 14, 2012

This B&B was very charming and clean. The rooms were a nice size and comfortable. We will stay here againg next time we are in the area. The breakfast was very good and Ryan was an excellent host.

What a find!

5 on July 24, 2012

This was a very pleasant, relaxing experience for my husband and me! This B&B was wonderfully appointed, clean and Ryan was a joy! Interesting to find such a refined B&B in Grove City! My husband liked the Krueg coffee machines (2!). Breakfast was fabulous! The initial welcome, the warm atmosphere of the home -- I just can't say enough. You will be treated like "royalty" from the moment you arrive until you leave!

Review of Terra Nova House

5 on July 20, 2012

Our two day stay at the Terra Nova House was a delightful experience. Ryan & Molly were outstanding hosts. The breakfasts were generous and delicious, and the all day/night availability of various snacks ensured that we never went hungry. This, coupled with the fruit plate and dessert we received each evening and the always available coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soft drinks and juices, made our stay quite pleasant. This beautiful inn is very clean, and the rooms and baths are large and exquisitely decorated to the theme of each particular room. Upon departure Ryan notified us of problems on the road to the airport and worked up an alternate route that added only minutes to our trip. When we arrived home we had an email from Ryan thanking us for staying and telling us he had found something we had left behind that he would promptly mail it to us We had it in 3 days. We rate Terra Nova house among the very best B&B's that we have ever experienced.

First Class B&B

5 on July 16, 2012

Terra Nova House should be at the top of the list for the BEST B&B's . From the very warm Welcome by Ryan & Molly the wonderful touches such as a fruit plate to welcome the guests, the tastefully decorated rooms with the finest of furnishings. Ryan's superb culinary talents. Breakfast was a real treat and so plentiful and delicious, we did not have room for lunch. The personalized touches.....home baked cakes and brownies in the late afternoon, endless snacks, coffee, tea, soft drinks and juices, made me think I was on a cruise. Rachel's Roadhouse Eatery (Recommended by Ryan) was an excellent place for dinner.....you must go before 6.00 p.m. if you are pressed for time, as the place fills up quickly. Would highly recommend Terra Nova House as a great place to stop for those travelling south to Pittsburg/Washington from Ontario Canada Excellent Value for the money.

We'll be back!

5 on July 11, 2012

This bed and breakfast had the perfect blend of vintage feel with updated amenities.

Outstanding service and amenities

5 on July 09, 2012

This was a very pleasant stay. The host took great care of our special dietary needs, the great selection of coffees, teas, snacks and goodies was a welcome surprise. Highly recommended.

Treated Like Royalty

5 on July 08, 2012

Our stay during the week-end of July 6 to 8, 2012 was a "get-away" to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. We can't say enough about the Mercers' hospitality and friendliness. Ryan conducted a quick yet welcoming check-in, even making a dining reservation for us once he had discovered that we hadn't had dinner yet. He carried our luggage to the British Empire room, where the nameplate next to the door bore our first names with the titles of "King" and "Queen". There was a generous plate of delicious fresh fruit and a home-made brownie awaiting us each evening. And a Keurig coffeemaker on both floors, with more snacks than you can imagine! Each of the 3 daily choices for breakfasts was as mouth-watering and plentiful as the other. Our compliments to the chef! The music softly playing in the background as we ate brought back wonderful memories---not at all the elevator music we so often hear! The home itself is very welcoming, with its "country" colors, lovely decor and furnishings, and a wrap-around porch. We certainly plan to spend more get-away week-ends at the Terra Nova House in the future!

A MUST Stay for a FANTASTIC Little Getaway!!

5 on June 27, 2012

The absolutely only regret I have associated with my visit at the Terra Nova B&B is not being able to have stayed longer! My mother and I enjoyed two fantastic nights there earlier this week and I have already recommended it to all my friends and work associates. Ryan and Molly are warm, welcoming, and abundantly accommodating. They went over and above to ensure our comfort and meet all our needs. We were pleasantly surprised with the plentiful snack stations and delightful pastries and baked goods made available to us in addition to the personal fruit and chocolate plates we received each night. The house was kept in immaculate condition and was extremely cozy and peaceful. Although we very much enjoyed the quiet of the mornings on the large sunny wrap-around porch, the accessibility of the Wi-Fi and TV, which was equip with blue ray and Netflix, was a perfect balance for us. And lastly, the food is nothing short of gourmet. It is made fresh and prepared at the time of your choice and is truly PHENOMENAL! We had such a wonderful time and neither of us can wait to come back again!

Best Birthday Present Ever!

5 on June 25, 2012

With it being our first stay at a bed & breakfast we were not sure of what to expect. Terra Nova House in Grove City far exceeded our expectations. What a delightful adventure we had in the most charming, comfortable and meticulous surroundings. We did not have to ask for a thing as everything we could possibly want was at our fingertips! Ryan and Molly, the Innkeepers, were kind and showed a warm welcome and we were so pleased to have met them. Ryan's breakfasts were scrumptious, too! Their devotion to their establishment shows itself everywhere. Whether we decided to have coffee and read on the front porch or balcony, play a board game, or watch a movie with snacks, it was the most relaxing weekend we have had in many years. We have decided that Terra Nova House will be our first choice to celebrate special occasions or just have a peaceful retreat. We send our thanks to Ryan and Molly and wish them continued success! Chris and Ed, Pittsburgh, PA

Terra Nova House OUTSTANDING in every category!!!

5 on June 24, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Terra Nova House over Memorial Day Weekend this year. We were in Grove City to visit my 92 year old mother who lives in College View Tower just a few blocks away. Everything about our stay was superb. The home is immaculate and the furnishings have all the comforts of home. We had a menu from which to choose breakfast each morning. I tried something different each day and each meal was delicious. The food is cooked to order and prepared fresh daily. In addition, there are snacks and beverages available for your consumption throughout the day. Ryan also prepares a fresh fruit plate and pastry for each guest as a late afternoon/early evening snack each day. Enough said about the food...on to the room itself. We stayed in the British Empire room. It has a king size bed and private bath. My husband said the sheets were the most comfortable sheets he has slept on in his entire life. The bed was amazingly comfortable. The decor of the room suitably matches that for which it is named. Our stay was a genuine 5 star experience across the board. We will definitely stay at Terra Nova House again when we return to Grove City. Thank you Ryan and Molly for making us "at home away from home". Carol and Joe Ball San Francisco, California

A Most Delightful B&B!

4.6 on June 21, 2012

My wife and I recently stayed at the Terra Nova House in Grove City, PA for a getaway the weekend before our 20th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay again! The room was absolutely delightful with theme decorations and reading materials. We were pleasantly surprised by the evening brownies and fruit that we found outside our room on check-in. The entire house was emaculate and it was obvious that Ryan and Molly care about their guests. We highly recommend the Terra Nova House to anyone looking for a B&B in the Grove City area. Brian and Kristin Strohmeier

Amazing experience

5 on June 18, 2012

My wife and I love the experience of staying at Terra Nova. The owners put extra effort at every turn to make sure we had a great experience. Breakfast was incredible, snacks, the room, etc. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Exceptional in Every Way!! - BEST B&B!!

5 on June 17, 2012

We cannot say enough good things about our stay at Terra Nova. Everything was extremely clean and cozy. The innkeepers, Ryan and Molly, were very genuine and personable. They go above and beyond other B&B's. You have (delicious!) choices for your breakfast and are treated to things like in-room Blu-ray/Netflix, fruits & chocolates, a giant brownie to share, access to coffee/tea/snacks at any time...truly amazing! It feels like they've thought of all the fine details and it made us feel like we were truly being pampered throughout our stay. Can't wait to go back!

Shopping and family bonding

4.8 on June 17, 2012

Five of us stayed overnight and were very impressed with the charm of Terra Nova House. Ryan and Molly went above and beyond with their service. The food was delicious and little extras were everywhere with snacks, a fruit plate, brownie, and a Keurig on each floor with many flavors of coffee and teas to choose from. In the morning I enjoyed my coffee on a lovely little balcony overlooking some beautiful landscaping. Ryan was very helpful in suggesting places to eat and giving us directions. He told us of updates he is planning for Terra Nova. It all sounds great. We had lots of fun shopping at the Grove City Outlets and Terra Nova House was very convenient. We'd love to stay again. My daughter is thinking of returning with her husband to celebrate their anniversary. I also hope to return. Marlene

Great B&B

5 on June 12, 2012

We loved Terra Nova House. It is a beautifully restored house on a quiet, tree-lined street. The bed in our room was extremely comfortable and the sheets so soft they felt like silk. Nice touches included a fruit and chocolate plate for each room, our name on the wall beside our door, coffee and tea always available, warm apple cake waiting in the upstairs hallway, and many other nice details. The innkeeper is friendly and ready to please his guests. I would highly recommend this inn.

Great Place to Stay-Good food-Clean-Great Small town atmosphere!

We love the Terra Nova House and the new owners are great. Ryan is a great cook. Love the new breakfast menu. (You get to pick what you want!) We are looking forward to when the room with the king size bed gets its bathroom expanded. Also looking forward to the room across the hall becoming a room with a king sized bed. You got it, we like king sized beds. It was a wonderful addition to have snacks and drinks available and we thought the fruit and chocolate plate and the huge complimentary (to die for) brownie we got to share were above and beyond what we were used to. Having Netflix was also nice. We watched a movie in the morning while we were getting ready and packing to go. We go to Terra Nova on on wedding anniversary and then skip over to Rt 19 in Mercer and have dinner at the Springfield Grill (They have the best food). It was a great anniversary weekend. Deb and Joe

Wonderful stay!

5 on May 31, 2012

This beautifully kept home, close to Grove City College, is a perfect place to stay when in the area. The breakfast was delicious and generous. We look forward to returning to Terra Nova.

What a Wonderful Place!!!!

5 on May 07, 2012

During our recent stay at Terra Nova House, we were treated to excellent service and many extras which made our stay so pleasant. The fruit plates each evening were so refreshing and we appreciated being able to communicate so readily with Ryan. We were asked frequently throughout the weekend if we needed anything. One evening we brought our daughter, who is a student at Grove City College, and a friend over to play games and were even offered dessert!! We would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast and plan to return again.

Better than home

4.8 on April 30, 2012

A great place to stay got even better! As GCC alumni we get together twice a year to reminisce, catch-up, and shop. Terra Nove B&B has been our choice for the last several years and we couldn't be happier. The rooms are very nice and the food and service are great. Ryan and Molly are terrific hosts! Can't wait to go back in the fall to see what other improvements they make.

My wife's birthday

5 on April 26, 2012

Ryan went out of his way to make sure we were very comfortable. The little extras were great like beverages, snacks and the breakfast was outstanding. He set up a massage and dinner for us the day before we were coming because I falied to plan when I booked the room. The room was very clean and the place was very quiet even with other guests in rooms on the same floor. We would stay again when the need comes up. HH

Favorite place to stay!

5 on April 23, 2012

Kind welcome, delicious breakfast, super clean, and lots of little extras like a sunny front porch and afternoon fruit plate.

Very Pleased with Our Stay at Terra Nova

4.6 on April 16, 2012

We stayed at Terra Nova House last week while visiting Grove City College. We enjoyed our room, however, it was the extra touches made the Terra Nova stand out. From pastries upon arrival (including a huge brownie for our son!) to the ever-ready vast coffee selection, along with the large video library (which we used), we were very impressed. But it was the breakfast that really "wowed" us. Ryan did a beautiful job preparing and presenting the breakfast we had ordered the night before. It was outstanding! Well done, Terra Nova House!

Knitting Retreat

5 on April 02, 2012

I just returned from a very relaxing weekend with knitting friends. Terra Nova House was a perfect location for us. Ryan and Molly made sure we had comfortable seating and good lighting. The food was delicious. Our rooms were comfortable, clean and pleasantly decorated. We chose Grove City because it is centrally located for our group. We will return to Terra Nova again!

Grove City's Gem of a B&B

4.6 on April 01, 2012

Ryan was a delightful host. The rooms are cozy and immaculate; many comforting touches like coffee/beverages and delicious snacks were made available on same floor as rooms so you don't have to trek through the house for a midnight craving. Bed was comfortable and the pillows perfect--not those rock hard foam things. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely go back.

A great place in Grove City.

3.8 on March 17, 2012

Ryan has done a marvelous job with the TN House. Service is very, very good and the room was just what we needed. Breakfasts were exceptional. An easy walk to Grove City College.

They treat you like family, only better!

4.8 on March 12, 2012

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast and the innkeepers have done a great job to make it authentic and very comfortable. Everywhere we went was immaculate! Ryan and Molly have obviously found their niche and, although new to the B&B community, are obviously very happy with their newfound purpose. They could not have been more helpful or fun to interface with. One of the most incredible things they do is to prepare your breakfast from a menu which you submit the night before. This is very detailed, including side dishes and beverages so that they are ready when you are. My husband and I have stayed at many B&B's around the country and have NEVER had this option. It's a lot more work for them, but it's something that they want to do for us. The rooms and bathrooms are not big, but they are more than sufficient in size, and they are very comfortable. They have Keurig coffeemakers upstairs and down which are always available, and they have upscale teas as well. They also have snacks available, and a daily fruit plate for each room with chocolate in the guest refrigerator upstairs. They treat you like family, only better! We'll be back!

Away for the weekend

4.2 on March 10, 2012

As this is our second stay the new owners (Ryan and Molly) made some really good changes, A fruit for their guests, A variety of snacks and beverages, I really liked the pastries that were put out for their guests to enjoy. Ryan was very helpful for information on where to eat (Nonni's was great) Groove city outlet mall is only afive minute drive away. I will recommend staying at Terra Nova house to my friends Thanks

First of many more stays, hopefully!

4.6 on February 28, 2012

Wonderful first visit. Ryan was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The available coffee, tea, drinks and snacks were more than we've ever seen at a B&B. Extra little details (fruit and chocolate plate) were unexpected. The room was very nice, breakfast was great, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our first visit to Terra Nova. Ryan even brushed the newly fallen snow from our car in the morning! We're very happy to recommend the Terra Nova House.

Superb Accomodations and Service

5 on February 24, 2012

Loved the British Empire Room, Too bad there were only 5 stars to rate Terra Nova House, they deserve 10 stars. The place was squeaky clean, food was wonderful. The fresh fruit plate and home made goodies each night were a very nice and appreciated extra. We will recommend this place to everyone. Tom and Toni Phillips

Clean and comfortable

Rooms where clean Ryan and Molly where excellent hosts. The Keurig (K-Cup)machines where a nice change from the standard coffee pots. Enjoyed our trip a lot.Will tell all our friends about it.

Outstanding Customer Service

4.8 on February 21, 2012

The new inkeeper Ryan did a magnificent job during our stay at the Terra Nova House. The customer service, food, cleanliness, and atmosphere were amazing and made for an unforgettable experience. ~Steve Musgrave & Stephanie Riker

Above Beyond Call of Duty and spectacular service and food

4.0 on February 19, 2012

The new innkeeper Ryan earned the ABCD award from my husband and I on our recent stay at the Terra Nova House. Above Beyond Call of Duty. Other B&B's could learn from our experience what REAL CUSTOMER SERVICE is about. It was an exceptional experience for us and we will return often. The McElroys

Terra Nova House

5 on February 13, 2012

This was our third year staying at the Terra Nova House. What an upgade from the previous years. We stayed in the British Empire Room the king size bed was very comfortable and clean the only done size is the bathroom is very small. But I would pick that room again due to the comfort and decor is more important to me than the bathroom size. There is a beverage/snack center on the 1st and 2nd floors available 24 hours a day. It is nice to have a hot cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate available coming in on a cold night after dinner.The home cooked breakfasts were delicious with a variety of food. We had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend the Terra Nova House. Don't miss staying here on your next visit to Grove City. I would not stay any other place! The new inn keepers Ryan and Molly are very friendly and go out of thier way to make you feel at home.

Peaceful Getaway

5 on February 12, 2012

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast. The house is charming. The atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing. We stayed in the North Atlantic room which is quaint and quite comfortable. When we arrived we were treated to fresh fruit and chocolate. Our breakfast included french toast with baked apples and crumb topping. It was delicious. Ryan, the Inkeeper is very friendly. We enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back.

Great B&B in Grove City

5 on January 20, 2012

This was our first stay at the Terra Nova House. It is a beautiful Victorian home located in a quiet neighborhood with off street parking. It is close to Grove City College, the Prime Outlets, and several excellent restaurants are nearby to choose from. Ryan and Molly, the innkeepers, were wonderful, friendly, and helpful hosts. They have two lovely children. The atmosphere is comfortable, relaxed, and homey. We stayed in the North Atlantic suite which is nicely decorated with a nautical theme. The room is comfortable, spacious, and toasty warm on a cold night. The bathroom is clean, large, and well lit. The whole house is very clean, well-maintained, and welcoming. There is a beverage/snack center on the 1st and 2nd floors available 24 hours a day. It is nice to have a hot cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate available coming in on a cold night after dinner. Our home cooked breakfasts were delicious with a variety of food. We had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend the Terra Nova House. Don't miss staying here on your next visit to Grove City.

Nice little retreat

3.2 on November 22, 2011

Terra Nova House was easy to find and close to Grove City Outlet Mall. The British Empire room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was very small especially for a man or a tall person. Breakfast portions were smaller than expected. I would change the menu. Would have liked to enjoy coffee before our breakfast, but the coffee maker was empty near our room. Snacks and other drinks would have been nice to be included in our stay, only bottle water was provided. Overall a good experience for the price and location.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your specific feedback as it helps to serve our guests in the future. As the new owners/innkeepers of the Terra Nova House (12/9/2011), many of your suggestions will be implemented upon our 1/18/2012 re-openning. Plans are underway for a few new amenities. The 2nd floor beverage center will be expanded and include a Keurig machine for coffee/tea at any hour. A new 1st floor snack and beverage center will be added which will be stocked with goodies galore for an early breakfast or a midnight snack. All rooms will be equipped with an upgraded television, Blu-ray player and a shared movie library. Finally, in-room massages will be available (based on scheduling) by a local licensed massage therapist for the low rate of $55 per hour (either 1 full hour or 2 half-hours). We will also be looking at ways to increase the size of the bathroom in the British Empire room.

- Ryan and Molly Mercer (Innkeeper)

Another Great Stay

4.0 on November 22, 2011

We have been coming to the Terra Nova House for quite a few years on our annual trip to the discount mall. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Best of the Best

5 on November 18, 2011

Not only is the Terra Nova House one of the nicest B&B's we have stayed in but it is the friendliest! Barry and Sandy are the most welcoming hosts we have ever met, they make everyone feel like family. The house is immaculate,breakfast is always great, and the hosts are like family, what more could one ask for.

Perfect Getaway

Veterans day special

I took part in their veterans day thank you offer. What a classy place and owners ro do something so special for the veterans. Owners were wonderful and made great recommendations as far as dinner and entertainment. Will definitely stay again!

Great folks & a great place!

4.2 on November 01, 2011

This is a sweet couple and a lovely inn. Very clean, very thoughtful amenities, and very accommodating. I will definitely stay there again. My favorite is the English Rose room, but all that I have seen are nice.

Yes, I'll stay again!

5 on September 20, 2011

We picked this Inn to be closer to a wedding, what a wonderful choice. Very clean and spacious room. King bed in quiet room with flat screen TV. Off street parking. Breakfast each morning was a treat. Early coffee on the 2nd floor and cold bottles of water anytime were welcomed. Barry and Sandy are great host, we will be back.

First time B&B

4.8 on September 13, 2011

The Millers went above and beyond to meet expectations we had in our first ever experience at a bed and breakfast, it's not a surprise they've received the accolades they have recently, and they deserve plenty more.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Terra Nova!

5 on September 12, 2011

We chose to stay at the Terra Nova House to be close to Grove City College for a visitation of the school. We were met by Barry Miller and he was such a joy to speak with! Our room was just as described online (Golf room). The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and neat. The neighborhood is close to everything, yet quiet so you could sit outside and relax and listen to the birds or read. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, and the service was excellent! My teenage daughter and I enjoyed speaking with the Millers about Grove City College, and the area. They offered restaurant recommendations to us as well. They do have a cat, but we kept the room door closed at all times, and when in common areas, I did not have any trouble with my allergies. We could not have had a better stay except for the weather being less rainy! :-) We highly recommend staying at the Terra Nova House, and will definitely be back.

Simply Outstanding

5 on September 10, 2011

We have been to many B&Bs over the years, but this was without a doubt the best we have been to. I am sure we will be back in the future. I highly recommend Tera Nova house to anyone looking for a great place in a quiet area close to the main street in Grove City and the outlets. Dennis and Jane

A nice B&B in Grove City

3.6 on September 06, 2011

Everything was lovely, although the British Room has a very small bathroom - a little difficult to sit down!

Very Comfortable stay

4.8 on August 30, 2011

This was a very comfortable stay with a delicious breakfast and good recommendations for dinner and shoppping the following day. Thank you for your hospitality. Ralph and Debbie

A treasure in Grove City, PA

Lovely Victorian home with a large porch and a variety of room styles to choose from. Friendly and gracious innkeepers, and a delicious breakfast.

Terra Nova House

5 on August 18, 2011

Terra Nova House exceeded all of our expectations. Everything was immaculate, the kingsize bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious and nutritious. Our hosts, Barry and Sandy, made sure we had everything we needed and were very friendly and welcoming. Jada the cat and Molly the dog added to the ambiance! We will definitely visit again.

Love this place!

5 on August 17, 2011

We've been staying at the Terra Nova House for more than 8 years. It's a wonderful, clean, affordable, comfortable place to stay.

Terra Nova

4.2 on July 28, 2011

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Barry and Sandy are exceptional hosts. They went out of their way to provide us with help in locating a great restaurant for dinner on a Sunday night. The town is very nice and the country side beautiful. We would highly recommend their B&B.

A wonderful getaway!!

5 on July 28, 2011

The Terra Nova House was wonderful, peaceful and quiet! Barry and Sandy were a sheer joy to talk to and wonderful hospitality! It was my girlfriend and I's first time staying at a bed and breakfast and I am glad Terra Nova House was our first. The bed was so comfortable, and the pillows, we had a wonderful night's sleep! I wanted to know what brand the mattress was because I want one at home! :-) Breakfast was delicious too! Thanks again Barry and Sandy for a wonderful first experience of a bed and breakfast! Definitely will stay again in the future.

Good experience

4.0 on July 25, 2011

This was our first time at a B&B and we weren't sure what to expect but we had a pleasant time at Terra Nova House. The house is very clean, the room was nice and the innkeepers (Barry and Sandy) were very informative and helpful in getting us around town. Their cat having the run of the house could be an issue for someone with allergies (like me), but I didn't have any problems during our stay. Now that we've had a positive experience for our first time in a B&B, I would do it again and would recommend visiting this one in particular.

Rest stop

4.2 on July 06, 2011

Stayed here on the way to Cleveland and it sure took the stress out of a long drive. This will make a return stay a no-brainer. Also don't miss Nonni's Corner Trattoria for dinner, within walking distance, we rate it outstanding!

B&B - The Hosts Make All the Difference!

5 on July 04, 2011

Great B&B for all the right reasons, but the host made everything even better. A wonderful couple who made our "get away" weekend wonderful! Thanks Terry & Renee

Fabulous Place!

5 on June 28, 2011

We stayed five nights at this delightful bed and breakfast while exploring the area and it was by far the best B&B we have ever visited. The hosts were so warm and friendly, the breakfasts amazing and the rooms so clean and welcoming. We look forward to visiting again!

Great B&B!

4.8 on June 20, 2011

Our stay was just what we were looking for. Terra Nova was very clean and decorated beautifully. Barry & Sandy were very informative on things to do and the restaurants. The bike trails were wonderful. They certainly do deserve the top awards they have received. We will try to go back again soon.

our stay at terra nova house was very pleasant and comfortable.Hosts were very pleasant and accomodating

4.2 on June 07, 2011

We stay at the Terra Nova House at least once a year. It is clean, comfortable, great family atmosphere at breakfast. We always meet such interesting people and Sandy and Barry are great hosts. We wish only that there was more of a selection or just more of breakfast. One of us has a much larger appetite than the other.

Wonderful time as always

4.6 on May 25, 2011

We have stayed at the Terra Nova House on several occasions and have found that we are pleasantly accomodated. We'll keep coming back when we need to get away.

Great Place - Great Deal!

4.6 on May 10, 2011

The Terra Nova House is a quaint bed and breakfast with a relaxing decor, friendly innkeepers, great food, and a wonderful value. We have been there several times and will continue to go back. We've stayed in several of relaxing theme rooms and loved them all. We highly recommend the Terra Nova House!

Quaint in Grove City

The Terra Nova House is a beautiful place to stay in Grove City. We were treated like family by our hosts Barry and Sandy and loved meeting Molly and Jada, the house pets. Thank you for a wonderful getaway!

Comfortable stay

This B&B is well worth the time it takes when passing on the Interstate highway. We had a very pleasant stay and the owners are very helpful and delightful inn keepers.

1st time

4.4 on April 26, 2011

This was our 1st B and B experience and my wife is sold on it. We couldn't have asked for a better location to start with. Barry and Sandy were perfect hosts. Their Inn is immaculate and we'd recommend it highly. We'll be sure to return.

Terra Nova House

5 on April 12, 2011

Staying at Terra Nova House was a wonderful way to spend a relaxing weekend. Barry & Sandy are so helpful in providing suggestions for local entertainment, dining and shopping. The room was immaculate and the breakfasts delicious. Definitely would recommend Terra Nova House to a friend, and definitely plan to return for a third stay!

Well-appointed B&B and friendly service

3.8 on April 04, 2011

We arrived at the end of a long day of driving and were met with warm hospitality, plus well-appointed and comfortable rooms. The breakfast was very tasty, too.

It's one of the true small towns ; like they were when I was growing up!

We have been staying at Terra Nova house for 7 years and we wouldn't go anywhere else. Great rooms, great breakfast and wonderful hosts!

Wonderful 2-night stay for business and to visit my daughter.

4.6 on March 22, 2011

I recently had to come up to Franklin, PA for business and decided to stay in Grove City so that I could visit my daughter who is a Freshman at Grove City. When deciding on a hotel to stay at, I was reminded of the time my wife and I stayed at Terra Nova House. So I checked their website and fortunately for me, they had a vacancy! I promptly reserved a room for the nights I needed. I had another wonderful stay, was able to conduct business and see my daughter - all while having a relaxing and beautiful place to stay!

Wonderful Getaway!

4.6 on March 16, 2011

Barry and Sandy were wonderful hosts. My husband and I went for our anniversary and were very glad we chose the Terra Nova House. The house was warm and inviting and their dog, Molly and cat, Jade added to the great atmosphere!

When will we come back??? Tomorrow too son?

5 on February 27, 2011

Thank you Barry and Sandy for making us feel like part of the family! You were very warm and inviting, breakfast both days were wonderful and your hospitality just added to the charm and pleasure of the experience! Can not wait to come back again!!!

Terra Nova Bed and Breakfast Grove City,PA

5 on February 23, 2011

This was our fourth visit in Grove City at the Terra Nova Bed and Breakfast as guests of Barry and Sandy Miller. As always, our rooms were impeccably clean, the breakfasts were creative and delicious, the host and hostess so gracious... We'll be back again if our travels take us to Grove City. The weather was all sunshine and blue skies - the Miller's may have had a hand in that, too. Thanks J&M

A Hidden Gem!

4.8 on February 17, 2011

Although we've stayed in Grove City numerous times over the last 4 years, this is the first time we stayed at the Terra Nova House. It was simple but charming and absolutely immaculate.The host and hostess were very friendly as were the resident pets who greeted us. Our breakfast was delicious. This unpretentious bed and breakfast far exceeded our expectations. We will definitely make return visits!

My home away from home

5 on January 29, 2011

Once again, Barry and Sandy were the perfect hosts. My son and I stayed for a couple of nights in January on our way to Austin. We couldn't have asked for more and have had the same consistent quality each of the many times I have stayed at Tera Nova House.

Terra Nova...a Delight!

4.8 on December 23, 2010

The hosts paid close attention to detail and were very attentive without being overbearing. I enjoyed their conversation, their fine cooking, and their lovely abode. Thank you very much!

Love Terra Nova House

4.0 on December 17, 2010

This was our second visist to Grove City and to Terra Nova House. We had a great time once again, Sandy & Barry are so hospitable. Barry went above and beyond what is required from a B&B owner. If it wasn't for him we would not have made it homw on time and we would have been much lighter in the pocket book. Our car did not start while we were at a gas station. We do not have CAA so I called Barry. He came down to the station boosted our car then charged our battery all night and we made it safely back to Ontario the next day (after breakfast of course). You would never get that type of service at a hotel/motel. Breakfast is so delicious and creative and just the right portions everytime. They encourage people to get to know each other and both times we met really nice people to talk with and share tips about shopping. We will definetly be going back probably in the summer!

good experience

4.8 on December 15, 2010

I've stayed at one other b&b before and the Terra Nova House by far exceeded my expectations! The breakfast was delicious and the innkeepers both informative and as sweet as can be. We may make this a annual stay. I highly recommend!

Another great stay!

4.8 on December 06, 2010

Wow, another great stay! This was our fifith year in a row we have stayed and it just keeps getting better. The room was so clean, the food was amazing. Barry and Sandy you two are the best! We are already planning to be back for our sixth year! We can't wait!

Met or exceeded our expectations

Met or exceeded our expectations and if you are a cat lover you will be sure to like it.

A suggestion

Many B&B's provide a hairdryer in the bathroom. That might be a nice addition to your hospitality.

Canadian Shopping Trip

The entire stay was most enjoyable. The food was exquisite!! We enjoyed everything about this place. It was like a home away from home, right down to the Molly the golden retriever. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the rooms are very quaint, and homey. We will definately be back. Thanks Sandy and Barry for a wonderful time. The Schaefers

great experience!

exceptionally well-kept house in western PA., breakfast was delicious,owners very personable, will return soon!

Awesome night to relax!

4.4 on November 15, 2010

We stayed on 11/10/2010 at the Terra Nova House for the B&Bs for Vets promotion that the innkeepers participated in. What a great night! Barry and Sandy treated us excellently, the food was great, the rooms were comfy and clean, and because of the promotion our night was free! How awesome! I would definitely recommend staying with the Millers any time you get the chance. It was wonderful!

Barry and Sandy went above and beyond for Vets!

5 on November 11, 2010

My husband(who is an Iraq veteran) found out that the Terra Nova B&B were participating in the program where veterans got a free night stay. We were so impressed with the lovely rooms and the wonderful hospitality. Barry and Sandy were even so kind to give all of the families a gift certificate to a local restraunt. We were also very charmed by the communal pets Jada & Molly. We look forward to another stay in the future and some more good cooking!!

Thank you

4.8 on November 09, 2010

What a nice time we had at Terra Nova. I have never been to a bed and breakfast and Barry and Sandy were awesome hosts, very accomadating and pleasant to be around. The rooms were excellent and all in all, everyone had a very nice time. I certainly would recommend this bed and breakfast and if I come back to the area, I know where I'll be staying!! Marcia M

November 4, 2010 stay

4.8 on November 08, 2010

We really enjoyed our stay with Barry & Sandy! They are the consumate host and hostess. They had excellent dinner and sightseeing suggestions for us. The only downside would be the size of our bathroom. Next time we would look at another room. We definetly look forward to visiting with them again soon!

We'll Be Back!

5 on October 31, 2010

Our annual shopping trip to Grove City is not complete without a stay with the Millers at the Terra Nova House. We've been returning for several years now, and have never been disappointed. The hospitality is outstanding, breakfeast very enjoyable, and the place incredible. We would not consider staying elsewhere.

Terra Nova is a treat!

5 on October 24, 2010

I am one of a group of 6 friends who met at Grove City College and return to the town twice a year for a get-away reunion and shopping spree at the nearby outlets. We have been staying at Terra Nova House for the past few years and each time are thoroughly pleased with the inn, the innkeepers,not to mention the fantastic breeakfasts. It is such a treat for us "girls" to get away and know that we are returning in approximately 6 months to see not only each other but to visit with Sandy, Barry, Molly and Jada!

Lovely Home

4.6 on October 19, 2010

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The chairs in the Rose room were very comfortable for reading and the room was bright and very pretty. The hosts were very friendly and hospitable. We would recommend this bed and breakfast in the quaint tree lined street in Grove City. R.&A.

A great place for Girl's Weekend!

4.8 on October 04, 2010

This was a great B&B for a relaxing weekend of shopping and spending time with friends.

Porch and balcony for your early morning coffee

4.6 on September 14, 2010

Our second time at Terra Nova. Just as special as before-a really high quality B&B with great innkeepers. I will come back and will recommend to others.

Like staying with friends ....

4.6 on September 12, 2010

My wife and I met with our best friends for a weekend at the Terra Nova House. We live in Easton, PA and our friends live in Lousiville, KY so somewhere north of Pittsburgh was close to halfway for both of us. We had a wonderful time exploring the area and thoroughly enjoyed Barry and Sandy's hospitality. Our room was immaculate, food was excellent, they even have a golden retriever in case you miss your own pet.

Amazing hospitality!

5 on September 11, 2010

The Terra Nova House is a beautiful B&B - the restoration/decorating is beautiful and period appropriate. I had the North Atlantic Room (and for one night the Caribbean) and it was gorgeous! The Caribbean was also great. Rooms were clean and neat and very comfortable. I felt at home right away. Great amenities - free wireless, cable, etc. Nice quiet street. Big homey porch to relax on. Barry & Sandy are amazing hosts - so friendly and welcoming and genuinely focused on their guests' needs. I wanted a place to walk and they recommended the park nearby which was just gorgeous! Molly & Jada are also very friendly & welcoming and that added to the cozy, warm feeling. Breakfasts - wow! Delicious food, perfect portion sizes and the other guests were great company. I enjoyed meeting different people each morning. Thanks so much Barry & Sandy! I felt welcome and at home and very relaxed and I'll definitely be back!

Wonderful hospitality!

4.2 on September 06, 2010

Sandy and Barry were wonderful hosts. The breakfast was delicious, and the rooms are very clean. We had a nautical themed room which was decorated very nicely. We had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend to our family and friends.

Great place to stay in Grove City

3.8 on September 06, 2010

Barry and Sandy know how to make people feel comfortable and welcome in Grove City! We were on our way to go shopping at Grove City's Prime Outlets, and we're glad we picked this B&B! The room came with its own private bath and both were spotless- I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the room as well as the whole house! As for breakfast, I've had bigger breakfasts elsewhere, but this breakfast made up for its size in the great taste!

Pur-r-r-rfect Get Away

4.8 on September 04, 2010

Didn't know what to expect but was more than pleasantly surprised. Accomodations were above and beyond and hospitality was at it's best. Barry and Sandy were not only friendly and gracious but made us feel right at home. We felt as if we had made new friends. We highly recommend this B&B. It was more than a pleasant experience, and the food was excellent. Sandy and Barry can both cook!

B & B with the best cat

3.0 on September 02, 2010

I have stayed in many B&B's in several states and Terra Nova house met all my expectations. I've stayed in other B&B's that offered some extra special services but for the price, it would be unrealistic to expect much more. What made the stay at Terra Nova the best was their cat Jada. She visited with me and my husband in the morning before we went to breakfast. I would stay at Terra Nova again to visit with Jada.

great mother-daughter get away

5 on September 02, 2010

we recently stayed at Terra Nova House for the first time and had a fabulous stay. Barry and Sandy are definitely doing what they are meant to do; they provided excellent service our entire stay, and were so friendly. They are attentive to every detail. Room was immaculate. Breakfast delicious; thanks for a memorable stay!!

always a great stay

5 on August 30, 2010

We have been staying here for almost 2 yrs. while our son is attending Grove City college. We always book here as long as a room is available. Barry and Sandy are great company and very accommodating. The home is very clean and comfortable. They are always cooking up something special for breakfast and you know it is going to be good. We have stayed at other B&Bs and this one definitely takes the cake! Enjoy your stay at Terra Nova House!

Our first stay at the Terra Nova House

5 on August 29, 2010

Not only is it a fine place to stay, the Innkeepers made us feel so at home. We stayed for two nights in the British Empire Room, the decor was amazing. Our breakfasts were delicious. Mr. and Mrs. Miller were congenial and so helpful. Our daughter chose this B&B, she chose the best!

Pennsylvania dreamin'

5 on August 25, 2010

We're regulars at Terra Nova House, visiting mom in our home town of Grove City several times a year. We've stayed at all the B&Bs in GC several times over the years, and none of them come close to Barry and Sandy's place. Breakfast is always refined but simple, never over the top. The Victorian house is tasteful, spotless and as comfortable as can be. Jada the cat made instant friends with our daughter, and all the Millers are warm and accommodating. You won't do better than this, anywhere you go. Odd thing -- their Australian flag sports the North Star -- who would think? Enjoy your stay at Terra Nova House!

Our 39th Anniversary Stop Over

5 on August 24, 2010

We had just settled our youngest daughter into her room at Notre Dame and were not looking forward to the 10 hour drive back home to Pa., especially since it was our 39th wedding anniversary. We decided to break up the trip by stopping at a B&B. Quickly researching the area to be traveled on the internet, we discovered the Terra Nova House and decided to give it a try. We have enjoyed staying at B&B's in various parts of the country. We found Barry and Sandy to be welcoming and our room to be even more delightful than pictured on their site. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed swapping stories with the couple at our table, who had just settled their daughter into Grove City College. More conversation was enjoyed in talking to Barry and Sandy about their experiences in inn keeping while I enjoyed petting Molly their dog. Our experience there was A+ and we are looking forward to staying there again on our next trip west.

Our First Bed and Breakfast Experience

4.8 on August 16, 2010

My wife and I decided to get away for the weekend and we chose to stay at the Terra Nova House based on the highly favorable reviews. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed. Barry and Sandy were wonderful hosts and the place was beautiful. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay and we have already told our friends about this gem.

A Night Fit for A King!

5 on August 06, 2010

Had a historical and memorable stay in the British Empire Room! Barry and Sandy are warm, engaging hosts who provide exceptional service and delicious breakfasts. Don't miss having your own regal experience at the Terra Nova House!

A Home Away From Home

4.8 on August 03, 2010

We just want you both to know how lovely our stay was at your beautiful B&B. Just awesome! It's like we never left home. Everything was so well put together, and of course, the English Rose Room gave the finishing touch to making our stay ever more pleasant with its immaculate washroom, spacious bedroom and the warmth of the decor. Your hospitality and cuisine were excellent and we hope to return to your wonderful B&B soon. Again, thank you for making our stay enjoyable.

Great Stay

Home away from Home

5 on August 01, 2010

My husband and I spent a night at Terra Nova while attending his high school reunion!! What a wonderfully, pleasant surprise!!! This home is gorgeous!!! It was also immaculate - I'm a germ freak - and far exceeded my expectations! The breakfast was delicious and the owners friendly and inviting! This is a superb B&B! I highly recommend it!!!

Looking forward to our return trip!

5 on July 31, 2010

Our family stayed at Terra Nova House on June 25th of 2010 for the Grove City College Orientation Program. We had a great experience that included fantastic food, friendly and knowledgeable hosts, and a spotless room! We are new to the Grove City experience and Barry and Sandy directed us to a great local restaurant, helped us with local directions and made one of our first visits to the area memorable and pleasant! We look forward to staying at terra Nova again in the fall! Well done, and after staying at several B & B's we feel that this one takes the prize! Residents from Richmond, Virginia.

Birthday get away

4.4 on July 24, 2010

Great place to stay, very quiet and relaxing really couldn't rate the dinning due to the circumstances with the kitchen reno. we did enjoy the breakast provided in our room. Barry and Sandy were great people to talk too. they recommened places to visit (Volant). we will be back in the future and look forward to our stay at Terra Nova B&B PS I liked the Canadian flag being put out when Canadians visit. Keep up the good work

A slice of heaven!

5 on July 24, 2010

After 13 years, this was our first time away together from our two special needs children! Although it was only one night, we couldn't have chosen a better place. Everything was perfect and hope to be able to spend the entire weekend at the Terra Nova some day very soon!

Restful and Comfortable Stay during visit to Grove City College

4.4 on July 23, 2010

Barry and Sandy were extremely accommodating during our one night stay July 7, 2010. Even though we made reservations last minute and arrived late in the evening Barry and Sandy were so welcoming. My husband and son shared one room, and my daughter and I shared another. The rooms were beautiful, quiet, and very clean. The bathroom was bright and well appointed. My daughter had never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before. I would choose Terra Nova any day over a local hotel. Breakfast of pancakes and fresh fruit the next morning got our college visit off to a wonderful start. Thank you Barry and Sandy. Kristen in Colorado

Long weekend getaway from Texas

5 on July 19, 2010

My Mom and I stayed on a Thursday and Friday night a few weeks ago. Our flight was delayed and we did not arrive at Terra Nova until 1:00am. Barry and Sandy greated us at the door with a warm welcome. The food is fabulous, the rooms are spotless and extremely comfortable. We will be back!

A great place to relax.

4.4 on July 18, 2010

My wife and I have never stayed at a B&B and we were reluctant to even try, but on my wife's birthday we scheduled a two night package and discovered what we have been missing. The owners could not do enough to make us welcome and the package included roses and candy . The roses were outstanding and the candy was from Daffins and marvelous.Also, eating at the Gallery Grille was outstanding. The other visitors were friendly as well. Needless to say--comfort, hospitality, personality and great food made the stay one in which my wife and I will return for more of the same.The experience for my wife's birthday was more than enjoyable. We rate it a 10 out of 10.

July Fourth/Shopping Visitors from Mississauga, Ontario

4.6 on July 15, 2010

Don't be put off by some neighbouring houses that need a touch of paint, on the way to this attractive B & B. Perhaps the town should have a contest to bring homes up to the standard that the Millers have set! The destination was certainly worth it, and we had a lovely clean, pretty room (English Rose) and tasty food in the morning. The morning coffee in the hall with proper mugs was an appreciated touch as we got ready for our busy day. The owners are kind and attentive to every detail. We definitely would go again & have been telling friends about this little gem! We loved the July Fourth celebrations at the Christian College. The men's barbershop choir, the band and the amazing fireworks made our stay a wonderful event. Thanks to the Millers for suggesting we go! The shopping at the Outlet was awesome as well...great deals for Canadians! All in all, we had a great weekend!

Could stay forever !

4.4 on July 08, 2010

A warm, friendly and inviting B&B. Our rooms, in fact the entire house is tastefully decorated and pleasant to be in, and very clean. The breakfasts (2) were very creative..not the usual muffins, eggs, etc.., and cooked by Barry...and delicious. We loved being able to sit on the front porch and enjoy a quiet evening, and early morning coffee which was provided using a fantastic coffee maker in the upper hall for our use. Sandy and Barry are wonderful friendly and helpful hosts. We would visit this B&B again when in the area, and recommend it to friends.

Just lovely!

4.0 on June 25, 2010

A beautiful, inviting, clean home; a warm welcome from Barry & Sandy; a clean, nicely decorated room; a comfy bed, very quiet neighbourhood and a tasty breakfast - who could ask for more? Barry & Sandy encourage their guests to mingle by having one serving time for breakfast and seating the guests at one table. We enjoyed meeting and chatting with Denny & Darlene from Ohio. Besides shopping at the Outlet Mall, we enjoyed some great golf.

our stay

4.6 on June 24, 2010

A beautiful home and nicely furnished. Gave us the feeling of warmth and relaxation we were looking for. Barry and Sandy were very friendly to my wife and I and made the visit more personal. The breakfasts were very good and prepared with care.

Grove City College Visit

5 on June 12, 2010

My son and I stayed at the Terra Nova House in April 2010 for two nights during our first visit to Grove City College. Barry and Sandy were most hospitable and were very helpful in providing information about the area and college. The decor of the inn is lovely, and the breakfasts were delightful. We look forward to staying at the Terra Nova House again!

outstanding visit for 5 of us

5 on June 04, 2010

Now in our 70th year, five of us had a mini-reunion having first met in grade school. Terra Nova was the persfect setting.

Have stayed 3 times

4.6 on May 18, 2010

The rooms are tasteful, comfortable and spotless. The innkeepers are wonderful people, full of helpful local information, and committed to serving their guests in the best way possible. The breakfasts have all been different and delicious.

Wonderful weekend

4.0 on May 11, 2010

The weekend was relaxing and enjoyable. Terra Nova is very neat, pristine and inviting. It was comfortable and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. The Millers are lovely people and welcoming to their guests.

A Wonderful Experience!

4.6 on April 27, 2010

This was our second time at a Bed and Breakfast and it certainly was a wonderful experience. Barry and Sandy were very friendly and hospitable and made us feel right at home. They have a beautiful old home and keep it immaculate. The breakfast was superb! We would certainly come back if in the area and would highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Grove City. Stratford Ontario Canada.

Best b&b experience we've ever had

4.0 on February 22, 2010

Our one night stay at this B&B was a pleasant surprise! The innkeepers were pleasant, hospitable, and paid great attention to every detail. This was evidenced by the way our room was decorated, the amenaties at our disposal, and the service we received. Highly recommended, will visit again!


5 on February 20, 2010

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was great and Barry and Sandy were very helpful with any questions or requests. We would enjoy staying again

Home away from Home

5 on February 15, 2010

We had a great stay at the Terra Nova House.Barry and Sandy were quite accomodating. The beautiful home was clean ,lovely and warm. We are planning on making it our place to stay when we go visit Grove City! Thank you.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

5 on December 24, 2009

The female members of my family stay at Terra Nova every year for three days and two nights. We have family that comes from Canada and the rest of us from Ohio. Terra Nova is a fabulous place to come together with family. Barry and Sandy are tremendous Innkeepers -- there to make sure we have everything we need for our stay. We look forward to their hospitality and great breakfasts!! It is truly a home away from home! We can never stay anywhere else!! Staying at Terra Nova is like visiting good friends - always welcoming! I can't say enough about what a positive experience this is for my family - year after year! It is now officially a tradition!

Sweet North Atlantic Suite

4.4 on December 15, 2009

We finally got to enjoy a postponed getaway weekend and couldn't have been more pleased. Barry and Sandy are terrific hosts. Will definitely be back (especially loved the cinnamon french toast and the outstanding bacon)!

Wonderful Mini Honeymoon Getaway

4.8 on December 13, 2009

After getting married last weekend in Pittsburgh, we wanted a night away from home before going on our official honeymoon after the holidays. The North Atlantic Suite was comfortable and spacious -- the fireplace offered an extra special touch! Barry and Sandy served a delicious breakfast the next morning and were wonderful hosts (Molly and Jada, too). We really enjoyed our stay at Terra Nova House and look forward to going back again.

A Delightful Stay In Grove City PA

4.4 on December 12, 2009

We came to visit Grove City College with our daughter and had found Terra Nova via the college website. It turned out to be a delightful choice. Terra Nova is a lovely, quaint Bed & Breakfast. The rooms were very comfortable, roomy, and wonderfully decorated, and toasty warm as it was quite cold (in the 20's!) when we visited. Baths were very clean and spacious. Breakfasts were delicious with a variety of foods - great coffee. The best was talking with Barry and Sandy and enjoying their kitty, doggie, and lovely B&B.

Great Stay and Great Food

5 on December 09, 2009

I stayed at the Terra Nova because I was there for a swim meet. Barry and Sandy was great. The rooms and beds were very comfortable. The food was very good! The stay there was overall a great stay. I would definitely go back.

Rest stop

3.6 on November 26, 2009

My husband and I stopped at the Terra Nova on our way home to DC from Chicago. We knew nothing about the inn as we booked strickly from the website. We were very happy with the condition and cleanliness of the house and our room. The innkeepers were welcoming and they have an absolutely adorable cat Jada who is quite a charmer. The breakfast and coffee were delicious and we shared our table with a very nice couple from Ontario. All in all, we would not hesitate to go back to the inn if the situation presented itself.

Wonderful Getaway

4.8 on November 20, 2009

My wife & I were looking for a place close by but away from the city - Terra Nova was it! Great house and rooms, wonderful breakfasts, just a great overall value. Barry & Sandy made our weekend memorable.

A Special Place

5 on November 19, 2009

My wife and I have been guests of Barry and Sandy for three straight years. We appreciate the kindness of Barry and Sandy. The rooms are very clean and the atmosphere is very warm. When visiting Grove City we would not stay any where else. Thanks Barry and Sandy.

A delicious breakfast!

4.6 on November 11, 2009

This is the best Grove City has...It is an easy walk to the campus, clean, refreshing and good, carefully prepared food.

Weekend getaway location

4.2 on November 02, 2009

Perfect spot for a romantic fall weekend getaway! Barry and Sandy run a delightful bed and breakfast. We stayed in the English Rose room, which was beautifully decorated and had a generously sized bathroom. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful the next morning. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly...would definitely return and recommend to friends!

Home away from home

4.8 on October 31, 2009

We enjoy staying at Terra Nova House while visiting our son attending Grove City College. The location, rooms, and breakfast make the visit very comfortable.

Quiet, Cozy & Compfortable

4.6 on October 31, 2009

While my daughter spent the night at Grove City college, I spent the night at Terra Nova House. What a treat--and a wonderful, peaceful way to end a hectic week! I especially enjoyed staying in the Golfers' Hideaway on the third floor under the eaves. Sandy and Barry were friendly and hospitable, and the cinnamon French toast for breakfast was a delicious finishing touch!

Love coming back to the Terra Nova House!

5 on October 19, 2009

Sandy and Barry have always been accommodating, personable, and helpful every time we have stayed at the Terra Nova House. They run an excellent B&B!

Great R&R

5 on October 18, 2009

We loved every part of the Terra Nova Bed and Breakfast! Barry and Sandy were great and made us feel so welcome in their home. Our room was very nice and quiet- a lovely get away from our busy lives. We will be back.

Lovely bed and breakfast

3.6 on October 18, 2009

We had stayed here before and came back. The Millers were gracious and helpful as always. The rooms and lobby area were beautifully appointed, cozy and clean. We chose the only room with a kingsized bed and it was warm and cozy. Unfortunately, the room didn't have a closet. The bathroom used to be the closet and it was difficult to close the door and also to sit comfortably on the toilet. The value overall exceeded my expectations.

quaint and charming

3.8 on October 18, 2009

Delightful ...our bed was comfortable and our room cozy . We would stay here again. Barry and Sandy made us feel at home

Relaxing and Comfortable

3.6 on October 11, 2009

Terra Nova House B&B is a beautiful home where we were very comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and easy to talk with.

"A Refuge from the Storm"

5 on September 27, 2009

Our stay at Terra Nova House B&B was just what we needed after a long and stressful summer! The home is beautiful, the accomodations are outstanding,the hosts are lovely, and breakfasts were delicious! We will return! Herb and Diane


4.4 on September 21, 2009

We had lived in Grove City for twenty two years , and where back to visit a few close friends. Our stay at the BB was great. The Inn Keepers were so nice and made us feel at home. I hope to stay there again in the coming years

A lovely break from the big hotels!

3.8 on September 17, 2009

Our last night on the road after a week of travelling was in Grove City. On a whim we chose Terra Nova over a hotel, and are glad we did. Love the big old house and gardens, the friendly pets greeting us in the lobby and the welcoming innkeepers who made us feel very much at home. Thanks Sandy and Barry!

Excellent B&B

3.8 on September 17, 2009

Our room was lovely and pristine and the breakfast was delicious. Sandy and Barry are very cordial hosts and we enjoyed our stay immensely.


5 on September 07, 2009

The house had very nice flower gardens outside. The fying of the Canadian flag for us was a nice touch. The house is very large and interesting. The room was exceptionally nice, large and comfortable. We stayed in the North Atlantic room. But the most important part of our stay was Barry & Sandy. They are extremely hospitable and make you feel like a family member. They are eager to help in any way including what to do and were to eat. They made the difference between a nice stay and an outstanding stay. I would also be remiss if I forgot to mention the outstanding breakfast we had both days.

Wonderful Stay

4.4 on September 01, 2009

We have stayed at numerous B&B's, and this was one of the nicest. The room was beautiful and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. Barry and Sandy did everything to make our stay wonderful. This is a great place to stay when shopping at the outlets!

Better than expected

5 on August 31, 2009

Much nicer than a chain hotel. Wonderful to talk with other guests at breakfast. Lots of "extras" like coffee available before breakfast, well furnished rooms, bathroom was great. Would stay again!!

Don't stay anywhere else

5 on August 31, 2009

Barry and Sandy are a delight. The rooms and food were terrific. We are repeat visitors and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Grove City.

a safe harbor

4.4 on August 30, 2009

I have stayed at Terra N. three times now, and every time it was a delight. Barry and Sandy are meticulous to every detail, and the breakfasts are always a highlight. I would highly recommend this B & B.

Enjoyable Experience

5 on August 25, 2009

Barry & Sandy are charming hosts. Room was just as charming as the hosts. Outstanding breakfast. Look forward to next stay.

An enjoyable stay.

5 on August 18, 2009

The golfers hideaway was a nice room on the third floor. The room was not hot in July and the private bathroom was very clean. The fruit and pancake breakfast was excellent and the hosts were exceptionally friendly. We will stay there again in the future.

Our weekend Hideaway

5 on August 09, 2009

Terra Nova House was our first experience with a Bed & Breakfast. It was one of the most pleasurable weekends we have had in a long time. Barry & Sandy were wonderful, friendly and very accommodating which made us feel at home.

TNH: phenomenal lodging!

4.8 on July 21, 2009

We had an incredible stay at Terra Nova! Barry and Sandy were amazing hosts, the fact that they are onsite with their pets (Molly was great, Jada was even better) made the whole experience like spending the weekend with close family. Would highly recommend TNH to anyone visiting the west PA area. As a military member-Barry was extremely inviting and very fun to swap stories with. We actually stayed an extra night because we liked it so much!

a find in Grove City, PA.

4.6 on July 20, 2009

Barry and Sandy made us feel very welcome. We appreciated the early morning coffee before our sumptuous breakfast.


5 on July 17, 2009

My second stay here and I'll be back!

Friendly Hosts & Excellent Food!

4.6 on July 15, 2009

We've been to several B & B's and Barry and Sandy are among the most gracious and hospitable hosts we've ever encountered. The breakfast really set it apart from the others - fresh baked and awesome! Barry was even happy to share some of the culinary secrets.


5 on July 15, 2009

It was such a pleasant surprise. We were not really familiar with the Terra Nova House and were delighted with our room the hospitality and the breakfast. Thanks for a lovely start to our vacation!

A Weekend with Jada

4.2 on July 15, 2009

Two-night stay. Excellent location and beautiful property. Didn't have to pay for the extra company - Jada, the owners' cat who spent all weekend with us in our room. A very special treat for cat-lovers away from their own.

Wedding weekend

4.8 on June 26, 2009

We booked all 5 guest rooms for the weekend of our daughter's wedding in Grove City. Sandy and Barry could not have been kinder or more accommodating. Nothing ever seems to go exactly as planned where weddings are involved - from torrential rain to blue skies in a matter of hours - but our desire to give our daughter a beautiful memory of where she stayed the days before her wedding, 2400 miles from home, was met perfectly. All her brothers could be there with her, as well as Mom and Dad and her godfather - priceless. (The pictures don't do the rooms justice!)

Excellent Hosts

4.8 on June 23, 2009

We spent two delightful days at Terra Nova. Barry and Sandy were excellent hosts. Our plane to Pittsburgh was delayed so we arrived late, but Barry and Sandy stayed up to greet us. Breakfasts were outstanding. Sandy gave us tips on touring the local Amish countryside Barry was a great conversationalist. When we are in the area again, we will definitely stay at Terra Nova!

Great B&B, great owners

5 on June 19, 2009

The rooms were great and the enjoyment of breakfast was only exceeded by the conversation with Barry and Sandy. This is the place to stay if you are visiting Grove City College or the outlets. Barry and Sandy were able to accommodate a last-minute change in our reservation as well as modify their breakfast schedule so we could get to a meeting on time. Stay once and Terra Nova House will be your home away from home.

Gem in a small town

5 on June 19, 2009

We had some very specific needs during our stay and Barry and Sandy were exceedingly flexible and hospitable. We were thrilled!

Very accommodating

5 on June 18, 2009

We have stayed in many B & Bs in several countries, and Terra Nova ranks at the top. They were able to accommodate a change in our schedule with grace and style. The only thing we missed is catching sight of Jada!

Great Visit

3.8 on June 09, 2009

Thank you for an enjoyable stay. This is my second time staying at the B&B and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. I love the wonderful breakfast that is served. It is so nice to relax and enjoy a nice hot meal. Thanks much!

What great Hosts!!

4.8 on June 09, 2009

Thank you for the welcome and homey feeling you gave us. The house is beautiful, clean and welcoming. You made us feel part of the family. We'll be back.


4.6 on June 08, 2009

We loved the attention we received & (WOW) the breakfast were exceptional. Loved spending time with Barry & Sandy,and the two guest we shared breakfast with for two of the mornings. Great experience.

10th anniversary

4.2 on June 08, 2009

We had a lovely time and the British Empire room was wonderful, especially for a man addicted to the history channel. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and their pets: Molly and Jada were adorable. Breakfasts were excellent,

MEs thoughts

4.0 on May 29, 2009

Terra Nova was the perfect getaway! Whether you are just traveling from the big city of Pittsburgh or destinations further or closer, it was a wonderful destination!

May 2009 Very pleasant visit

4.4 on May 14, 2009

Thanks for providing the resources for a most enjoyable 2-night stay, a really nice, totally comfortable bed and good conversation to boot. The only change I would make on my next stay at Terra Nova House would be to take the suite in order to get a bit more space in the bathroom. Otherwise, all was great and both of you (Sandy and Barry, TNH's hands-on Innkeepers) went out of their way to provide both all the amenities -- and a very tasty breakfast to start the day. This B&B is definitely the best rooming value in Mercer County. TNH is much better than the hassle and traffic/through the wall noise of the low-budget, cookie cutter, commercial hotels by the Prime Outlets. The benefits are easily worth the ten minute drive!

Comfortable, Clean, and Classy

4.4 on May 11, 2009

Room and bath were tasteful and very clean. Breakfasts were tasty (and even nutritious). Hosts were friendly, helpful, and professional.

Best way to turn back the clock

5 on May 07, 2009

Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast is a 100+ year old Victorian that is a "stand out" amongst others. Comfortable, cozy and quiet. We enjoyed our hearty, made from scratch breakfast served by our amiable hosts. While their website says it all, seeing the furnishings in each room of this inn is a must. After staying at Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast, you too will add it to your "Best in Category".

A wonderful b&b!!

5 on May 04, 2009

My girlfriend and I stayed in 4/09 and were taken with the charm of the house. Barry and Sandy were wonderful hosts, very informative on the local attractions and where to eat. Would recommend a weekend stay to anyone. And Barry serves a mean breakfast: definitely not your average meal!!

Lovely overnight in North Atlantic "Suite"

5 on April 29, 2009

We had a lovely summer preview on our April 24th visit, with weather more like July. The room we were in was immaculate, and based on my husband's allergies' not acting up, devoid of all cat hair, even though a lovely persian cat resides at TNH. Barry and Sandy were most considerate of our needs, even deciding on the "blueberry surprise" breakfast based on our diet request. The dining room allowed for friendly conversations in a "homey" atmosphere. We had a wonderful time there!

Home away from home

3.6 on April 17, 2009

The owners could not be more hospitable or helpful. A quiet homelike retreat.

Quaint and Relaxing

4.0 on April 13, 2009

We were amazed by the hospitality and overall charm of the Terra Nova House! Barry and Sandy treated us like family. At one point my girlfriend and I both remarked how it felt weird that they wern't eating with us! We will tell everyone about our stay most defenitely!

Our Anniversary

4.0 on April 09, 2009

We had a wonderful time in Grove City and our stay was magnified by the great experience at Terra Nova. Barry and Sandy were very helpful and gracious. They helped to make our stay that much more pleasant. Thanks guys...you do a great job!

Great place to stay when visiting Grove City College

4.8 on March 29, 2009

This was our first experience staying at a Bed and Breakfast and we loved it! Sandy and Barry are wonderful hosts. Staying at the Terra Nova House was a pleasant addition to our visit to Grove City College.

A great break in Grove City

The time with our student daughter was made even more special by the hospitality and exceptional accommodations at Terra Nova. Breakfast was a welcome beginning to each day!

Celebrated our 50th anniversary in style

4.8 on March 20, 2009

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Terra Nova House. Barry & Sandy were the perfect host & hostess. Although there were other guests there, we felt we were special. After talking to the other guests we found out they felt the same as my wife & I. Our suite was beautiful & spacious. So tastefully decorated. Look forward to coming back soon.

Our visit to Terra Nova House was relaxing and enjoyable. We enjoyed the breakfasts and found the atmosphere to be very comfortable. Barry and Sandy were wonderful hosts.

Quiet and Relaxing

4.0 on February 27, 2009

My husband and I stayed at the Terra Nova House while our son visited Grove City College. We stayed in the Golfers Retreat which is tucked away on the third floor. Very quiet. Great location as the B & B is very close to the college. Barry and Sandy were very helpful with dinner plans and local attractions. This is the place to stay while in Grove City.

Great little getaway!

5 on February 20, 2009

We had a great stay at the Terra Nova house. The room we selected was the North Atlantic Room. It had a log burning fireplace (Log provided), a huge bathroom, a couch, a sitting place, and great decor. The TNH is located in by a great outlet mall, great dining selections, and a cool little college town. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to specifications. We definately recommend this B&B

Our Overnight Stay

4.6 on February 02, 2009

We stayed at the Terra Nova House the night of January 30th for a mid winter getaway. Friends of ours had given us a gift certificate for the holidays. I can't say enough about how welcoming and friendly Sandy and Barry were. The North Atlantic Room was so pleasant and clean. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The highlight for me was the visit by Jada the cat in the evening to make sure we were tucked in. She is quite the little charmer! Breakfast was home cooked and tasty. Thanks for the consideration of dietary restrictions. Very thoughtful. Overall, a great stay! I look forward to recommending this place to friends and staying again in the future.

A Great Find!

4.8 on February 01, 2009

My wife and I had the occasion to stay at the Terra Nova House on the 29th and 30th of January, 2009. We were very happy with our stay, and will make sure that we again make reservations for our next trip. Barry & Sandy worked diligently to ensure that we enjoyed our stay (despite 7 degree temps!). The two breakfasts that they prepared for us were excellent (and, according to my wife, so was the coffee!). The room we stayed in was lovely, and quite clean. The accolades that the Millers have garnered are based on hard work and friendliness. We look forward to our next visit. Regards, Bob & Charlene

Excellent Hospitality...Molly was a treat!!!

4.6 on January 12, 2009

Brandi and I, unfortunately, chose a weekend when the biggest snow storm arrived for the winter and Barry / Sandy made sure to make us very welcome and assisted in securing restaurant reservations...almost every place was closed. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely make our back to visit soon!

My mother and I stayed at Terra Nova House on December 27, 2009. It was our first bed and breakfast experience. Although we only stayed one night, eveything about our stay was perfect. The house was beautiful, comfortable and cozy. We will be returning next year for sure!

This is the 2nd year in a row that we stayed there prior to our shopping. As with the first experience, this was well worth it and we will be back next year.

Terra Nova Compliments

4.6 on December 21, 2008

My wife and I have stayed in many B&Bs over the years and the Terra Nova House has moved into our favorites list for many reasons. Barry and Sandy were terrific hosts and the atmosphere was casual and inviting.

Wonderful Stay

We spent three nights with Barry and Sandy over Thanksgiving. They are terrific hosts. Breakfast was delicious each morning and we met some interesting people too. We have already made reservations for next year.


4.4 on December 09, 2008

We spent the most special night of our lives there on November 30, 2007, as we got engaged right in the Carribean room! Barry and Sandy were so excited for us - they took our first picture as an engaged couple. We loved it so much we returned last weekend to relive the experience a year after our engagement. Barry and Sandy were thrilled to have us back and we felt right at home. We hope to return again and again.

We arrived to the BB about 3:30pm and went to Pittsburgh for dinner and show, came back around 11pm and had a great nights sleep--and a wonderful breakfast in the morning!

Great place to stay!

4.6 on December 06, 2008

Terra Nova was a great place to stay after a long day of shopping at the Outlets. The room was clean and very comfortable. We would certainly come back!

My review

3.2 on December 06, 2008

Barry and Sandy are hospitable hosts. We were made to feel very welcome. Jada was just adorable.

Great Choice

5 on December 05, 2008

Barry and Sandy get it! This is the place to stay if you are anywhere near the area. We met two great couples while there for Thanksgiving and are sure to return again next year. By the way, Barry - you really need to write that book detailing all the experiences you have had with your guests.

Easily the best in Grove City

4.0 on December 04, 2008

A lovely, comfortable place to stay. Price is reasonable and room was very nice even though we stayed in their least expensive room.

A home away from home

4.4 on December 02, 2008

We've stayed here as often as we could in our child's three years of college, and have never been disappointed. Barry and Sandy are warm, personable and helpful hosts, and the atmosphere is very "family-like" as we enjoy breakfast together. The helpers (usually college students) are very friendly too. The rooms are quiet, delightfully decorated and cozy (not very large, but comfortable), and prices are quite reasonable.

Wonderful experience

4.8 on November 25, 2008

Warm, gracious hosts, scrumptious food, well appointed furnishings! Immaculate and inviting inside and out! Molly (Dog) and Jada (Cat) were a definite plus!!


4.0 on November 24, 2008

We went to Terra Nova House for our twenty-five wedding anniversary. After renewing our vows with family and close friends, we went to Terra Nova for so quiet time together and got so much more. Barry and Sandy hospitality was second to none. The room was beautiful, and breakfast was wonderful.

More than I expected!

5 on November 24, 2008

Barry and Sandy were wonderful hosts! The Caribbean room (smallest of all the rooms) did not disappoint us, it was exactly as described.

A Wonderful Experience

5 on November 21, 2008

Barry & Sandy were warm, gracious, and friendly while also respecting my privacy. The house is attractive and welcoming and full of charm. My room was nothing short of grand. I felt like a truly welcome guest with the best room in the house. Breakfast was absolutely scrumptious and served at a time I specified without complaint. Very accommodating.

Restful and lovely

4.4 on November 12, 2008

A delightful and accommodating couple makes you feel like family the moment you arrive.

Wonderful Place to Stay

5 on November 11, 2008

This is our second time staying with Barry & Sandy. We are a group of four women from Ontario on our annual shopping spree. We love staying here, the accomodations are wonderful, the breakfast is delicious and our hosts go above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. Hope to come back again next year!!

Warm and Inviting Hospitality

4.0 on November 06, 2008

Very friendly and helpful. This was my first B&B experience in America. I have always stayed in hotels before now. I enjoyed the relaxing, delicious breakfast. They were very helpful when I had reserved one night instead of two and helped me find another very nice B&B for my 2nd night in the area.

The only place to stay in Grove City

5 on November 06, 2008

My son and I stayed at Terra Nova House so my son could complete his admissions interview at Grove City College. We stayed in the newly renovated Golfer's Hideaway, which was fun even though I'm not a golfer. We were greeted upon arrival by Barry and Sandy. They showed us around and made us feel right at home. Breakfast was great. The other guests were friendly. My son was well rested for his interview. If he gets in to Grove City College, we will definitely be back!

When in Grove City, stay at Terra Nova House!

5 on November 04, 2008

Great place, friendly innkeepers and guests. Our room (the Golfer's Hideaway) was newly renovated. Breakfast was great. Everything was perfect. Our stay was 11/2/08.

Highly recommended.

5 on November 02, 2008

Our kind of place, and a very pleasant experience.

Just an absolutely wonderful place!

5 on October 26, 2008

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, and from the time we booked our stay we knew we were dealing with a top-notch inn! The Millers are absolutely delightful - we talked for many hours through the course of the weekend. They truly make you feel at home. We stayed in two different rooms (our choice), and both were extremely clean, comfortable and inviting. The breakfasts were by far incredible! Barry is an excellent chef and Sandy is a marvelous host! And of course, Molly and Jada (their Golden Retreiver and adorable kitty) were delights as well! Overall, this place is a wonderful place to stay. The prices are reasonable, and the service above all expectation! Thanks, Barry and Sandy!

We greatly enjoyed our stay and are planning to stay there again at some point!

A wonderful rendezvous

4.2 on October 15, 2008

This was the perfect location (halfway between our homes) for my college roommate and I to rendezvous. We talked and giggled as if the 35 years since we met were the blink of an eye. The warm welcome, luxurious room and delicious breakfast were icing on the cake.

Tops in Grove City!

5 on October 14, 2008

Stayed in the Golfer's Hideaway on the third floor. Quiet, quaint, clean, relaxing. Found the B&B online, while looking for a place to stay while visiting our daughter, a Grove City College student. Breakfast was the best, just the right portion size with fresh fruit. Barry and Sandy are gracious hosts. We look forward to our return visit!

perfect vacation

5 on October 14, 2008

It was a perfect desicion to stay with Barry and Sandy. We were greatet that warmly in the best B6B we ever bin.

Just like home only better.

5 on October 11, 2008

Where can I start. We were greated warmly by Barry and Sandy and also Molly their golden and Jada their Persian. I have a golden and we had a cat and this really made our stay even more like home. I can't wait to go back and I will recomend Terra Nova to all of my family and friends. Thank you for the warm and memorable stay. We made new friends in Barry and Sandy.

Charming and delightful

5 on October 08, 2008

Terra Nova House is a charming and delightful B&B! The house is a beautiful Victorian home hidden away in the little college town of Grove City, PA. It is well-kept, clean and the Innkeeper's, Barry and Sandy Miller extend perfect hospitality. I have stayed in many B&B's and this home away from home is outstanding in every way!

birthday/anniversary treat

4.6 on October 06, 2008

We made reservations based on the internet website and an ad in the Grove CIty Outlet Mall paper. We were very pleased with our room, and the upkeep and cleanliness of the home. Barry and Sandy are gracious and we felt welcome. A good value for the price and a nice breakfast. The home is for sale and they are looking for someone to take over the bed and breakfast. This place seems to need nothing and is in wonderful condition. In this community there seems to be almost no competition. We really enjoyed Volant, Pennsyvania, a small community with shops, restaurants, a winery, and the old Mill which is being restored. Don't miss the Iron Bridge Restaurant or Rachels' Roadhouse; first class restaurants in the Mercer/Grove City area. We would recommend this B & B to everyone. John and Marilyn Snyder Huron, Ohio

Birthday Celebration

5 on October 01, 2008

My husband and I spent the most enjoyable night at Terra Nova House on 9/25/08. This was our first time in a bed and breakfast and could not have been more pleased. We were warmly greeted by Sandy upon our arrival and was given a tour of her beautiful home. We felt very comfortable during our overnight stay. The breakfast that was served to us by Sandy on 9/26/08 was excellant. And we felt right at home because of her furry critters that were very well behaved.

Our first B&B experience

5 on September 30, 2008

We had a wonderful experience and will look forward to staying there again. Barry and Sandy exemplify hospitality.

Shoppers rest house

Thank you for throwing in an extra bed at the last minute. We loved the porch and so enjoyed hearing about the history behind your beautiful home. It was a perfect way to relax after a long day of shopping!

last minute treat

3.6 on September 29, 2008

I was thrilled when I found out that a room was available at the last minute, due to travel complications. It was like being welcomed home by old friends. The Carribean room was comfortable and relaxing. Next time I think I will spend a little extra for the North Atlantic Suite though-wow!


4.0 on September 28, 2008

Decided to surprise my wife with a last minute getaway. Called on Fri and was able to get the best room in the house for Sat!! Barry and Sandy could not have been any more accomodating. This place is amazing and the Miller's lives "define hospitality. We stayed in the North Atlantic mini suite. Pristine and cozy immaculate. Have recommended to many friends and will return.

September Getaway

A perfect oasis in September.. weather was beautiful, the Terra Nova House is an experience not to be missed. Barry & Sandy are gracious hosts and the rooms are beautiful and beyond clean and comfortable. The Atlantic Mini-Suite is our favourite with a lighthouse theme and is complimented by a beautiful bathroom. Of course, Molly & Jada welcomed us upon arrival as well.

A Gem of a B&B

5 on September 12, 2008

We recently stayed for our 25th Anniversary. Flowers and chocolates were perfectly pre-arranged. We couldn't have asked for better hosts than Barry and Sandy. They made our first B&B stay very comfortable in their beautiful home.

Change from the Ordinary

4.6 on September 11, 2008

This was the first time we stayed at a B&B. The room was very clean and the decorating was everything we desired--roses, roses! Much better than a hotel.

A definite "must do"

4.8 on September 09, 2008

Thank you Barry and Sandy! We experienced a wonderfully relaxing stay with Barry and Sandy. We were totally impressed by the warmth and cleanliness of the inn. Evrything smelled fresh and the beds were so comfortable that we had the best sleep in a long time. The inn was very easy to get to and conviniently located for shopping. Without question, we will be returning

Anniversary Spectacular

5 on September 07, 2008

We had a great experience for our first time at a Bed and Breakfast. It was a great way to spend our Anniversary. Barry and Sandy are truly very gracious hosts. We have spread the word to many people since we came home. We look forward to staying there again.

Wonderful stay

A Charming Place to Take a Break

4.6 on September 03, 2008

Two charming innkeepers running an outstanding B&B. The rooms are beautiful. The entire house is wonderfully maintained. Even the animals are pleasant company. Breakfast was delicious. A very pleasant way to break up a long trip. We would recommend Terra Nova without hesitation or reservation.

Terra Nova is a lovely bed and breakfast. Barry and Sandy are very hospitable. The breakfast was delicious. The coffee first thing in the morning was very welcome.

college bound...

4.6 on August 23, 2008

My son and I recently stayed with Barry and Sandy. We had a good night and were shown the house when we arrived...the only thing I would do differently would be to have a full bath tub room. The carribean room's bath tub is too small for a bather. Overall it was a great stay...thanks!


5 on August 23, 2008

Great experience, thanks!

Terrific Terra Nova

4.6 on August 21, 2008

The gracious hosts(and their adorable pets), delicious breakfasts, and friendly atmosphere made this one of my best Bed and Breakfast experiences. I'll definitely recommend it to friends. I plan to visit again someday!

Sweet 16

5 on August 20, 2008

My daughter and I stayed at the Terra Nova House on August 18 for her Sweet 16th birthday. The house is beautiful, the owners are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was delicious and the bed was very comfortable!!! We had a great time in Grove City thanks to the Miller's information and advice on the Grove City and Mercer areas. We would definately stay again, and hopefully next time the stay will be a longer one.

Loved It

Very relaxing and quiet stay at the Terra Nova House- just what we were looking for. Barry and Sandy are delightful. Highly recommend.

The bed was very comfortable

The bed was probably even more comfortable than my own bed. It was very quite and nice and clean. The Miller's were very friendly, great hosts.

We loved the inn even as we drove up and were warmly greeted by Barry, Sandy and their very friendly and welcoming dog, Molly. Our hosts gave us a short tour and showed us to our comfortable and relaxing room. They were also very helpful about suggesting places for dinner. As we returned from dinner we were greeted by their adorable cat, Jada, who visited with us in our room. A most enjoyable time away.

Comfort and Style

4.4 on August 07, 2008

Barry and Sandy are friendly, helpful and provide a quiet, clean and welcoming atmosphere with their charming and well kept home. Pets Jada and Molly were a nice touch and very gentle. The supply of shampoo and conditioner was greatly appreciated as we'd forgotten ours. Downtown is a short drive and the move theatre only charges $5 for a ticket!

An enjoyable experience

4.0 on July 28, 2008

We visited mid-week in mid-July. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which was clean, spacious, and pleasingly decorated. Sandy was helpful with respect to area activities and suggested an excellent place for dinner. Coffee and a newspaper were available at 7:00 a.m. in the morning. We enjoyed talkng witrh Barry and Sandy at breakfast and will add Terra Nova House to our "return visit" list.

Like coming home!

Thank you Miller family. The stay in the Golfer's Paradise felt like staying at a friend's house, but with very comfortable bed and my own bathroom :) The breakfast's were delicious, the young lady who served breakfast was delightful, and having coffee ready for my early checkout helped me navigate the western PA roads in the dark. It's a beautiful old house and an experience worth repeating

3.0 on July 17, 2008

Room was clean but small. Sink is in the bedroom because the bath is too small to accomodate it. Bed was comfortable and window air conditioner kept the room a good temp in July. Innkeepers were friendly and accomodating.

A Real Treasure

5 on July 13, 2008

This was our 2nd visit to Terra Nova House and for good reason. Our accommodation was outstanding as was expected but we were reminded again of the Innkeepers, Sandy and Barry- a great mix of quiet presence as well as great sincere stories. I am not at all surprised by Barry and Sandy's Inn's distinquished honour of being of the top 10 Top B & B's-but pleasantly pleased for them. The proximity to Grove City Outlets is a real bonus. We would recommend Terra Nova House to vacationers! Stu and Po

No wonder they are award winners!

5 on July 11, 2008

The Terra Nova House was a breath of fresh air. Our hosts take this seriously and you better book a room there soon before they get any more glowing reviews as they may very well raise the prices! Great people, a great location, attention to EVERY detail and we had a great time. This one is going to be hard to beat...

A Model B&B

4.6 on July 10, 2008

Tera Nova as perfect in every detail - the interior of the house, the grounds surrounding it, the welcoming hosts, and the interesting small town it is a part of. It obviously is the work of two people who love what they do.

Overall great experience

4.8 on July 09, 2008

Overall great experience with great staff.

Outstanding Visit!

5 on July 06, 2008

Once again an outstanding visit. The hosts are always friendly and fun, they make you feel very relaxed and comfortable. We have been there many times and they never let us down, a very warm and friendly place, in a quite relaxed town. Try a night and enjoy yourselves, we always do!

Best Place to Escape too!

Quaint Charm, OUtstanding Service

3.6 on July 02, 2008

Great B&B in a Nice LIttle Town

5 on July 01, 2008

We were on our way for a short stay in Erie and Northeast, Pa, from our home in south Florida, and we had the pleasure of meeting Barry & Sandy. Their Terra Nova House is clean, friendly, and comfortable, and our stay was enjoyable. I heartedly recommend a night at their inn. You will not be disappointed.

The Millers were very accommodating of our schedule that was driven by activities on the campus of GCC. That made our trip restful and more healthy! Thanks so much.

We'll be back!

5 on June 17, 2008

We stayed at TNH for our 15th wedding anniversary get-away. Sandy and Barry are delightful! We enjoyed chatting with them. Jada and Molly are so sweet! The rooms are beautiful and clean. The grounds are lovely. They made a delicious low-cholesterol breakfast for us. We'll certainly stay again and recommend TNH to everyone we know!

B&B Connoisseur

5 on June 09, 2008

Having stayed in many B&Bs across the nation as well as Hawaii and Ireland, this is definitely one of the top three! Born to be Innkeepers Barry and Sandy do everything top notch. This is a must for all.

Great Place To Stay

5 on May 29, 2008

We attended the Terra Nova House for a weekend getaway. It was a great place to stay and Barry and Sandy were great innkeepers! We will definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone making a stop in the area.

Graciously Comfortable

5 on May 28, 2008

I wanted a place to stay in Grove City on short notice. Terra Nova was accessible on the web and securing reservations in the web site was quick and easy. Sandy and Barry were both gracious hosts. If I am ever in Grove City again, I will certainly stay at Terra Nova house!

Better every year!

5 on May 26, 2008

We've stayed at the Terra Nova House several times since Sandy and Barry became the Innkeepers. The experience just gets better every time. Sandy and Barry go out of their way to ensure that our stay is everything we could hope for. They also make sure to alert us to new attractions and places we would enjoy visiting. The Terra Nova House is a gem!

Wonderful hospitality!

4.4 on May 20, 2008

Barry and Sandy provide not only beautiful and comfortable lodging, but a spirit of warm and gracious hospitality. This was our second stay, and we highly recommend Terra Nova.

Great stay!

5 on May 19, 2008

We have stayed with Barry and Sandy several times during the past 4 years while our grandson has been a student at Grove City College and our stay has always been a great experience.... thankfully grandson number 2 will become a student at the college in Sept. so we get the chance to visit them again for the next 4 years. It is a great B&B...

Hospitality Plus

4.6 on April 25, 2008

After a wonderful nights sleep in the most comfortable bed I have slept in and a nice breakfast, it was the conversation with Barry and Sandy that makes the stay at Terra Nova standout in my mind. They provided information about the area that made our visit to the Grove City area very special. They listened to the purpose of our visit and guided us to interests that made our visit a possible life changing visit. We are very thankful for their time, knowledge and willingness to share.

Great place to stay.

Home away from home

4.8 on April 11, 2008

The Terra Nova House is a wonderful place to stay. They really make you feel right at home. I was so comfortable staying there I almost hated to leave. The owners are friendly and helpful, and always ready to offer a cup of tea no matter what time it is. My favorite part was getting up early and having a cup of tea in the kitchen with them while breakfast was being prepared. I never felt as if I was intruding. They welcomed me right in with a smile.

It's more than a room!

5 on April 01, 2008

I needed a place to stay on short notice after hearing about the death of a loved one to attend services. I had remembered passing by and looking at the Bed and Breakfast sign on an eariler visit to the area and chanced a call hoping for a vacancy. My stay was beyound my expectations,very comfortable. My stay during a difficult time made me looking forward to another visit on a happier note. The service was exceptional. Thank You!

Always a shining Star

5 on March 30, 2008

Never a bad stay with Barry and Sandy! The breakfasts are a treat and the Coffee always hot. This B/B is a real Gem, nothing but a warm and friendly stay everytime! "Love Molly and Jada too!"

Our First Experience at a B&B

4.8 on March 26, 2008

This was a first time experience at a B&B for me and my husband and we had a wonderful time. We didn't know what to expect, but we felt at home and enjoyed the company of both Barry and Sandy. Barry even put out a Canadian Flag on our behalf which I was very honoured by; the food was outstanding! Barry and Sandy are great hosts, you can tell they love what they do and take pride in their business. If we make another trip to Grove City we will surely make another reservation at the Terra Nova house. For those going Pennsylvania for shopping be sure to take advantage of their "Shopping Spree" package!!!

B&B Delight

5 on March 21, 2008

All B&B's should model their service and hospitality after the Terra Nova House. From the lovely rooms, to the great breakfasts, to the friendliness of Barry and Sandy (not to mention Molly and Jada), this is the way it should be. Do yourself a favor and go there...you'll be glad you did.

A Great Weekend

There is no way you cannot feel at home at Terra Nova. From the outstanding breakfast to the spacious rooms, Terra Nova is a must stay. You will be welcomed not only by Barry and Sandy, but also by Jada and Molly, the official Innkeepers in our opinion. If you are anywhere within the Grove City area you would foolish not to make a stop here.

Review of my stay at Terra Nova

5 on February 26, 2008

A wonderful experience - we enjoyed the room immensely and the food was fantastic!!!! A really great value for the money and we loved talking with Barry and Sandy as well - very friendly hosts.

A Weekend Getaway

5 on February 18, 2008

It was our first experience at a bed and breakfast. We enjoyed the stay. The rooms was very comfortable and clean. Our Hosts were very friendly and helpful to get us around the town for our adventures. We will definitely go back there to stay.

Valentine to Remember!

5 on February 12, 2008

Finding your true love is one thing. But spending it together at the Terra Nova was an experience that we will always remember. The fireplace, roses, wine, chocolate & breakfast in our room was amazing. Thanks Barry and Sandy for making our first Valentine together so beautiful.

A welcoming home to come back to

5 on January 31, 2008

Barry and Sandy are so welcoming. It feels wonderful every time I return to visit family in the area to be able to settle in to one of their delightful rooms and smell the great coffee in the morning.

Grove City Shop and Stay

4.4 on January 30, 2008

Our stay at Terra Nova House was quite enjoyable and relaxing. Sandy and Barry were very hospitable hosts and made us feel at home. As pet lovers, we particularly enjoyed having Molly and Jada (the house pets) around to share our time. Good people, clean and safe accommodations, and parking on premises make Terra Nova House the place to stay in Grove City. We would certainly return.

This was a delightful and peaceful experience. Our room was delightful, extremely clean, and quiet. Loved the early coffee! The breakfasts were outstanding and very creative. We met some very nice people and Barry and Sandy were enjoyable and very helpful. It was great!

"Ultimate Romance" Package

5 on January 27, 2008

Our three adult children purchased the "Ultimate Romance" Package for us as a Christmas gift. We smelled the roses, ate the chocolate, sipped the wine, sat by the fire and enjoyed the gourmet candle lit breakfast in our room the next morning. What a fabulous gift!!!

Great B & B

4.6 on January 25, 2008

This was our third stay at Terra Nova House but our first review. Great value, extremely clean, friendly, good food. If you stay make sure you ask Barry about the Bison in that part of PA.

First time stay

4.0 on January 22, 2008

The Terra Nova House is a great place to stay, and convenient, since it is so close to Grove City College where our daughter is attending. The second you walk in, you feel at home! Every room is beautiful and clean, and the breakfast is extraordinary!

A Relaxing Weekend

4.6 on January 16, 2008

My Husband and I stayed at the Terra Nova House this past weekend, and we had a wonderful time. Barry & Sandy are so nice and welcoming, and we enjoyed visiting with them. We stayed in the British Empire, which was very spacious and comfortable. The fresh coffee brewed right outside of our room in the morning, and was so good! Barry & Sandy treated us to a delicious breakfast in the morning, where we also met Molly and THE Princess, Jada. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely stay here again!

Comfortable Stay

4.4 on December 03, 2007

Barry and Sandy were friendly and helpful, and their pets were fun. Our room was clean, and we felt very safe. Next time we're in town, we plan to stay at Terra Nova House. :)

Beyond the call of duty

4.2 on December 02, 2007

We had the first snowfall of the year while we were staying at the B&B. In the morning, we heard scratching and realized that the innkeeper was not only shoveling the walks, but also scraping each car window clean.

1st Visit

4.6 on December 02, 2007

Terra Nova was a very enjoyable experience. Great place to rest after shopping at the outlets. Quiet, peacful, friendly, and great owners.

Shopping and on route travelling

4.0 on November 27, 2007

It is one of the best B&B 's I have visited. I am sure that says it all.

Shopping sanctuary

4.6 on November 25, 2007

We had a wonderful first experience at Terra Nova. A friendly welcome from both Sandy and Barry and their lovely pets.It felt safe, comfortable and inviting. The little extra touches in the room and at breakfast made the stay worth repeating as annual girls'shopping retreat tradition. I'd recommend this B&B without hesitation.

Great Shopping Getaway

5 on November 25, 2007

We had a great time at the Terra Nova House. It was the perfect way to relax without kids so my wife could get a little shopping done. Barry and Sandy were extremely friendly and gracious and the B&B is beautiful. Grove City is also a charming little town. I look forward to a return visit.

Our first visit to a B &B

4.2 on November 25, 2007

Sandy & Barry were wonderful hosts- very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The breakfast was outstanding!

shopping holiday

3.2 on November 18, 2007

Barry and Sandy were warm and welcoming hosts. I enjoyed my stay very much and will definitely return. I particularly enjoyed the cosy common room which gave my friends and I a place to socialize in comfort. Thanks to the Millers for a great weekend.

Grove City Shoppers

5 on November 18, 2007

This is our 4th year traveling to Grove City Outlets, We are a group of Mom's who enjoy getting together to start our holiday shopping. This is the first year that we had stayed at the Terra Nova House. We all enjoyed our stay. We would reccomend this to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable and safe stay.


4.8 on November 17, 2007

We had never stayed in a B&B before and were so pleased. Barry and Sandy are excellent host and hostess'. They are the ones that made it so special. Also, we had the greatest room and we felt so at home. Thanks so much.

2nd Visit to Terra Nova

4.6 on November 13, 2007

This was our 2nd stay at the B&B. It's so convenient to Grove City College where I son is a student. We stayed for a weekend about a year ago in the North Atlantic room. This year we stayed in the Britsh Empire room. Both rooms are very lovely and so different from one another. North Atlantic is a bit larger with a very large bathroom. But, I think we preferred the set up and decor of the British Empire room although the bathroom was a bit tight. Barry & Sandy are very welcoming hosts. The breakfasts were yummy and we had very pleasant conversations over our meals with the other guests. We would definitely return.

First Time at a B&B

5 on November 11, 2007

This was a wonderful experience! Enjoyed very much the interaction with Barry and Sandy and meeting the other folks who were staying as well. Definitely a home-like couple of days!

great place to stay

4.6 on November 09, 2007

Carribean Room was small but adequate. Very clean. Parlour and dining rooms were comfortable and charming. Hosts were extremely hospitable. Thanks Barry and Sandy!

Great Visit to Terra Nova House

5 on November 05, 2007

We were a group of women visiting for a shopping weekend. Barry & Sandy were wonderful hosts and we had a great time. We are already talking about booking for next year. B&B is definately the way to go and Terra Nova House is the perfect place to unwind after a hectic shopping schedule.

Review of Terra Nova House

Extremely comfortable; very hospitable hosts; wonderful breakfast; impeccable accomodations.

Great B&B in Grove City

4.8 on November 01, 2007

We really enjoyed our stay at Terra Nova. We were in Grove City to have a weekend away for our anniversary. Barry and Sandy were very warm and welcoming. Our room was beautiful, we loved the food!


3.8 on October 29, 2007

The Terra Nova was our first experience with staying at a bed and breakfast. It was exceptionally clean and the hosts were exceptionally friendly.

Relaxing Night

4.4 on October 29, 2007

This was our third stop at B&B's on our way to Up State NY from Georgia. We found Terra Nova exceptionly Clean, Friendly and Relaxing. Wonderful nights sleep, and delicious breakfast to send us on our way North.

Comforting and Comfortable

5 on October 28, 2007

My first stay at TNH was wonderful. Traveling alone is not common for me - but I instantly felt safe and comfortable. Sandy and Barry are friendly, helpful and welcoming. Molly and Jada made me instantly feel at home. Rachel was a great help at breakfast which was outstanding. I look forward to staying there again when we come to visit our son at Grove City College.

Our first B.& B.,a great stay...

4.4 on October 24, 2007

We came to Grove City to do you serious shopping and regret we didn't spend more time at the B.& B. It was a warm, friendly relaxing experience. Our room and the rest of the facility was spotless... and we are going back.


5 on October 20, 2007

Slept like a log on the new king sized bed, had a wonderful breakfast and thought the overall experience very plesant

Perfect destination

5 on October 16, 2007

This was my third year staying at Terra Nova house. I do an annual Grove City shopping trip with my cousin and we would never think of staying anywhere else. You couldn't ask for better hosts and the house is beautiful.Breakfasts are fabulous. You leave feeling like you were at a Spa!

a fun getaway

4.6 on October 15, 2007

The innkeepers, Barry and Sandy were very friendly and helpful in setting up our room. We needed to use the fold-out couch and they prepared it for our use. The room was very quiet, comfy, and homey! Relaxation!

Stay in Grove City

4.2 on October 14, 2007

Very friendly and extremely clean!!

Best accommodations in the area

5 on October 14, 2007

The home of Barry and Sandy was very pretty and comfortable. The thing that was most outstanding was their service. From when I arrived to when I left they were gracious hosts, going above and beyond my expectations. It was well worth staying there!

Homecoming Stay

5 on October 08, 2007

The Terra Nova House was a wonderful B&B to stay at for my 35th Homecoming Reunion. It met and or exceeded my expectations in every respect. When classmates heard I was fortunate to have a reservation at the Terra Nova House, they were envious. I plan to return for future Homecomings.

Grove City B&B

4.8 on October 07, 2007

The innkeepers, Barry and Sandy, bend over backwards to meet or exceed your expectations. Our second stay, and we'll be back again.

Laundry list

4.4 on October 07, 2007

The most striking thing about our stay here was the hosts' willingness to work with us on a few extracurricular matters -- one-time use of the phone (with my phone card), provision of an extra pillow (we were supposed to ask, but didn't) and allowing one of us, who doesn't get around all that well, to use the "owners' only" downstairs bathroom ... just a gorgeous experience, and while we're not likely to come this way again, wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else if we did...

Lovely Atmosphere

5 on October 02, 2007

Our first time in a B&B was a delightful experience. I would recommend the Terra Nova House over and over again. We were made to feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door. I was especially pleased with the room we stayed in and the bathroom-clean and comfortable. I will definetly be calling Barry and Sandy if head towards Grove City again.

Our Home Away From Home in Grove City

4.8 on October 01, 2007

The Terra Nova House is our first choice of B&B in the Grove City Area. It is clean and comfortable and the food is excellent. Sandy and Barry are wonderful hosts who try to make their guests feel right at home. Of course there is always Molly and Jada, the inn owners delightful pets who are always in the background waiting for a warm hug -- well maybe just Molly. Jada is a bit more illusive but adorable nonetheless. You can't go wrong at Terra Nova House.

new to B&B

5 on September 24, 2007

We were first timers staying in a B&B. We were pleasantly suprised by how much better it is than a hotel room. Barry and Sandy were delightful, and the dog and cat were sweet. We will definitely be staying here again. We have recommended it to many people.

It was really pleasant staying at Terra Nova house!

5 on September 23, 2007

My husband and I came from Toronto, caught up in the border btw US and Canada, but we could make it up by staying this wonderful B&B. The dog and cat are so cute, too. The hospitality was awsome and we enjoyed staying here so much. After the long hours driving and tough waiting hours at the border, we really thought it was worth coming just to stay at this house. Thank you so much Mr&Mrs Miller, and we would love to come here again!

Clean & Comfy

5 on September 17, 2007

Terra Nova is my first experience with a B&B and I loved it. As busy stay-at-home moms, it has been wonderful meeting my high school friend at such a warm & friendly place as this. Barry & Sandy make us feel "at home" without the stressful pace of our own homes. I feel like I'm back at my parent's house, where they take care of me, make sure I'm fed and well rested! Thanks for being part of such great memories for me and my friend!

Outstanding B&B

5 on September 17, 2007

My husband and I just recently stayed at the Terra Nova House and absolutely loved it. Barry and Sandy are such lovely people and will make your stay one to remember. Say hello to Molly for us. We will never stay anywhere else when visiting Grove City. Thanks for the memories

Friendly, distinctive, and convenient

4.4 on August 27, 2007

My wife and I always try to stay here when we visit our child at GCC (five or six times by now). All the rooms have fascinating and distinctive personalities with very creative decor. Our hosts are warm and friendly. Breakfast is not only tasty, but we always enjoy meeting the guests (usually fellow parents of students like us). And the location, within walking distance of campus, is ultra-handy.

Great Place for Grove City Parents

5 on August 27, 2007

We were so glad to find a comfortable, inviting place to stay while moving our freshman into the dorm at GCC. The Millers are very hospitable and our stay at their B&B made a stressful time in our lives so much easier.

An excellent addition to our wedding

5 on August 20, 2007

At the end of our wedding day, my wife and I traveled to the Terra Nova House to spend our wedding night. From the moment we arrived, the Millers did everything in their power to make sure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible. The room (Empire Room) was gorgeous, the breakfast was delicious, and we left feeling rested. Highly recommended!

nice people, nice stay

Our 5th visit here

Great B&B

Charming and comforable

4.6 on August 17, 2007

The Millers are warm, welcoming and accommodating. The inn is lovely, very comfortable and a very good value. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee pot and cold bottled water on the second floor is very thoughtful.

This was a second visit for myself and I took six girlfriends along this time, We had a great time, Barry knows all the great secrets of the area, Both he and Sandy are warm and welcoming offering their talents and services at any time, Highly recommended for a shopping time away and a trip to Wendall August!! You are missing out if you don't stay at Terra Nova!

Happy Birthday

5 on July 27, 2007

This was our first time at a B&B and it was absolutely relaxing, Barry said something to make it all so welcoming, I ask how does this works? Barry says it's like staying at an aunt & uncles place, it was just like staying with family. We felt right at home. We'll be back. Sandy was so pleasant and has a sweet spirit. Thank you for my Birthday breakfast.

Will be back to enjoy again!

5 on July 24, 2007

Both the room and food were fantastic! We look forward to staying again sometime soon. Barry and Sandy are wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Would recommend the Terra Nova House to family and friends - anytime they are in the neighbourhood.

Relax and enoy!

4.8 on July 22, 2007

This was our first time at a B&B and I am not sure I will go to a regular hotel again!! Barry and Sandi were freindly and inviting, breakfasts were close to gormet and our room (Golfer's Hideaway) was clean and spacious. We highly recommend this wonderful B&B. Shannon and Steve, Milton, Ontario

It's like home away from home

5 on July 19, 2007

We can't say enough about Terra Nova House. It is a charming and very warm place to stay. Sandy and Barry are like visiting old friends. The breakfasts are out of this world! Also their cat, Jayden and their dog Molly made our stay even more even more enjoyable, as they were also very gracious hosts. We can't wait to get back to this Bed and Breakfast!

Home away from home

5 on July 19, 2007

Terra Nova House is a beautiful, warm and impeccably clean victorian bed and breakfast. The innkeepers are friendly,caring and lots of fun, and they make an outstanding breakfast! :) My family and I have stayed there many times over the past four years as a student at Grove City College and would never stay anywhere else! We look forward to coming back to the Grove City area from New Jersey as soon as we can to visit Terra Nova House and Barry and Sandy.

Home away from Home

5 on July 12, 2007

I think I should be going on my at least my tenth stay at Terra Nova House. On every return Barry and Sandy make me feel like I have just returned home. Jada and Molly make it all the more pleasurable with their warm welcome. Terra Nova is recommended to every parent we know at Grove City College. We continue to look forward to each return at Terra Nova House.

Bed & Breakfast at Best

4.8 on July 11, 2007

This is the first Bed & Breakfast that I stayed at and I will be sure to come back. The room was lovely, the bed comfortable, the entire house was clean and well maintained and Barry and Sandy were wonderful hosts.

Wonderful Stay- Highly Recommended

5 on June 30, 2007

This was our first time staying in a B&B and we are happy that we stayed at Terra Nova. Barry and Sandy were very welcoming and friendly. The accommodations were excellent. The North Atlantic room was comfortable and spacious. The cleanliness and upkeep of the B&B is impeccable. The peachy pancakes and creamy eggs were delicious. We are recommending Terra Nova to all our friends and family and we plan on returning.


5 on June 30, 2007

Barry and Sandy did a wonderful job with this B&B and the breakfast was AMAZING! We stopped in Grove City on our way from the Poconos to Ohio and it was an incredibly refreshing stay. Thank you!

We had a great weekend

5 on June 21, 2007

We were celebrating our 6th anniversary and wanted a homey B&B. Terra Nova House and Barry and Sandy were wonderful. We got just what we wanted. A nice quiet place to relax and get away from it all. Thank you for your hospitality, good conversation and wonderful breakfasts.

Thank you Barry & Sandy!

5 on June 20, 2007

We had such a wonderful stay at the Terra Nova House. You certainly do a great job of making your guests feel welcome! Our room was spectacular and the breakfasts were out of this world.

Everything about our stay at the Terra Nova House was outstanding. We felt as if we were staying with someone in our family. The service was great and I would definitely stay there again.

We Love it Here!

5 on May 10, 2007

We've stayed in every room at Terra Nova House while our daughter was in college. Each room is better than the other. The attention to detail made every stay comfortable and inviting. We know anyone who stays here will want to return again and again, just as we did.

Our new "PA" home away from home

4.8 on April 30, 2007

Probably the best bed and breakfast we've ever stayed in. Exceptionally clean. A top-notch facility. A nice combination of class mixed with a feeling of home. Great service and hospitality now make it our #1 spot when we come to Grove City.

Great place to spend some time.

5 on April 29, 2007

#1 Bed & Breakfast Terra Nova House

5 on April 27, 2007

My husband and I travel to the outlet malls often, and this was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. Everything was perfect and we are still talking about it today and recommended it to friends. You absolutely can't beat the price, the hospitality, the cleanliness, the peacefulness, and one of the best breakfast meals we have ever shared. Without a doubt we will be back.

A home away from home!

5 on April 24, 2007

Terra Nova house is beautiful. Our room was very comfortable, Barry and Sandy were perfect hosts, breakfast was wonderful. We have family in the area and will definitely be back!

Feels like home

5 on April 24, 2007

We especially enjoyed the feeling of home at your B & B. Being served such a wonderful breakfast was a treat. Your attention to detail throughout the home is evidence of your love for what you do.

Great attention to detail!

5 on April 24, 2007

The one thing that stood out to me about this bed and breakfast in particular is there attention to detail. Each room is themed and the owners have spent a great deal of energy and time making each room special for their visitors. Great food and a great place to get away!!

Warm and Welcoming

5 on April 23, 2007

Barry, Sandy, Molly, and Jada made me and my daughter feel right at home when I visited to be with my daughter for surgery. Traveling in January I had pretty much my pick of where to stay. I do believe I made an excellent choice.

A perfect weekend getaway

5 on April 23, 2007

As a first time experience, this B&B provided a standard which exceeded far from our expectations. The hospitality was warm and welcoming with a touch of curious kindness. My girlfriend and I felt at home at an unfamiliar area. The animals added a nice homey touch with their friendliness and extreme cuteness, meaning the kitty mostly though the dog is a cutie too :-D. The cleanliness is phenomenonal along with how the rooms actually look in person. This place is highly recommended if looking for a good well-priced, clean, welcoming, quality B&B.

Thank you for renewing a marriage

5 on April 01, 2007

Owned by a wonderful couple,very clean and comfy. a warm and friendly place to start anew or rediscover your love.

5 on March 06, 2007

This was our first visit to a Bed and Breakfast and we really weren't sure what to expect! Our stay was a pure delight! The room was immaculate, the decor superb, and the entire atmosphere tremendously charming. Our gracious hosts were professional and very friendly without being overbearing. The breakfast was delicious and the little kitty who came to our room was icing on the cake. Terra Nova House would be the ONLY place we stay when we are in the area again. Outstanding!!!

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your time with us and hope to see you again soon. Jada says "meow" and is looking forward to visiting you in one of our special rooms.
