With OVER 200 years of documented property history, Orchard House Bed and Breakfast is located on 12 acres in Granville, Ohio and has been home to local prominent members of the Granville community.
At the end of the revolutionary war, regiments were awarded land in Licking County as an initiative to settle the area. Over 4,000 acres, including our current 12, were part of this original parcel. After passing thru many hands in 50 years the land was sold to the Licking Land Company and the founders of Granville for more formal settlement and farming. The main manor, a classic, brick Italianate, was built in 1850 by Job Paige and his family. In the 1950s, it was the first licensed home for alcoholics in Ohio, the John Daley Home. Saved from demolition in 1969, the house was restored as a family home. The former Granville Manor Bed and Breakfast operated on the site in the 1990’s. Over the last decade the prorperty has sold several times, now Orchard House continues as a bed and breakfast, offering an atmosphere nodding to its long history with all the modern comforts expected of superior lodging. We call this style contemporary country.
Orchard House’s farm offers guests the opportunity to interact with our resident animals, including goats, pigs, and numerous poultry in the pasture. We offer a special package that allows for guests to lend a helping hand on the farm, experiencing all aspects of animal care and seasonal projects in the gardens and orchard.
Living in harmony with our natural surroundings, discover a private spot on the grounds - in the Christmas Tree forest or over the hill in the back pasture - to sip a glass of wine and enjoy the beauty that unfolds before your eyes.
Whether to escape the city for a weekend in the country or to visit and spend time with someone you love, we welcome you to our farm to enjoy some country relaxation in sophisticated style.
