The Welsh Hills Inn is historic Granville Ohio's award-winning, utterly relaxing, romantic bed and breakfast inn nestled on 15 idyllic wooded acres in the beautiful, rolling Welsh Hills amidst the equestrian countryside. Many have called it "THE" place to stay in the Columbus and Central Ohio area. Over 6,200 sq. ft. of accommodations with wide plank heart-of-pine floors, five large guest rooms and suites, luxurious bedding, and spacious bathrooms. Antiques, oriental rugs, and an extensive collection of eclectic, original artwork adorn the Inn and guest rooms.

The Welsh Hills Inn is owned and operated by hosts, Jeff and Bobbi Noe. A second career for both, Jeff and Bobbi have thoroughly enjoyed establishing and growing this charming property, nestled within the rolling Welsh Hills, into an award-winning, world-recognized Inn.
“It has been so incredibly rewarding to meet and host guests from around the world, calling many of them friends upon their departure and looking forward to their return”. This is a cherished benefit they did not necessarily foresee upon starting this new venture, but is what keeps them wanting to improve and be better each day moving forward.
Both Bobbi and Jeff, natives of Ohio, relocated to Granville when they joined Owens Corning’s Science and Technology Center upon graduating college as engineers. Bobbi spent 27 years of her career with Owens Corning focused on the development and launch of new products and processes; while after 5 years, Jeff moved on to focus his energies leading Sales and Marketing teams across the country for Nalco Chemical Company based in Chicago. These years of hard work and travel set the ground work for what they were to create at the Inn.
After more than 35 years, the Granville community is home and very important to them. Dedication to community and charitable causes is inherent in their make-up. Aspects of the community and Ohio are found all around the Inn. This includes their collection of original artwork focused on 125 years of Ohio art; the Local Artisan Shoppe which is filled with handmade treasures; and at breakfast and dinner where they utilize the local farm-to-table philosophy. Also, both provide active leadership on local non-profit and for profit boards, providing strategic planning and consulting services on a regular basis.
While it has now been several years since leaving the corporate world, Jeff and Bobbi remember their lives during that time very well. While they loved it, they also understood the need to get away to recharge. Their aim at the Inn is to provide everything you need to accomplish this.
Make your reservation today at this hidden gem within the beautiful Granville countryside and experience “Relaxation. Redefined.” for yourself.
