Licking County’s Orchard House in
Ohio’s Top Three Inns

Granville, OH November 15, 2016 - Unique Lodging of Ohio, a sector of the Ohio Hotel and Lodging Association, named Orchard House Granville as one of the state’s top three inns.
With a 5-star rating on TripAdvisor, 4.8 stars on Google, 4.8 stars on BedandBreakfast.com visitors repeatedly comment on Innkeeper/Owner, Dean Lowry’s high quality of service and delicious breakfast creations.

“Food, room, property, and innkeeper all were amazing!!! Loved every minute, from the old world and modern eclectic mix of furnishings to serving the best all fresh locally sourced foods. Could not have asked for more! So willing to accommodate everything we would have wanted! Best B&B experience we've had...” commented jjgriffis11118 on TripAdvisor along with a 5-star rating.
“We are incredibly honored to be ranked alongside two of Ohio’s long-standing classic, traditional inns - Inn at Cedar Falls and Glenlaurel Inn,” explains Dean. “We purchased Orchard House in April 2015 and have worked hard to bring the property to a higher level, which has been run as a bed and breakfast, on and off, over the past 25 years. Focusing on farm and local sourcing for our entire operation has added a very attractive element for our guests.”
Orchard House recognizes that today's traveler is looking for a distinct and curated experience, and something that is uniquely local. The Orchard House's location in rural Ohio encourages exploration and local interaction, again creating a unique experience for guests. Orchard House's design and eclectic decor and art create a one-off boutique atmosphere.

The term bed and breakfast deserves a bit of a rebrand, also. Today’s B&Bs are nothing like the ones you used to visit with parents, or grandparents, for that matter. These accommodations are luxurious, modern, and totally unique.

Orchard House’s main Italianate manor was built in the 1850’s on land whose settlement dates back to the Revolutionary War. But despite all of the property’s rich history, there’s a distinctly modern vibe here thanks to brightly colored accent walls, plush luxury bedding, original artwork, and a strong commitment to green eco-friendly practices - a style that Dean defines as “cosmopolitan country.” Recently added to the room options is a 16’ tent at the back of the farm which is outfitted with a queen size bed and down comforter, lights, oriental rug, and solar shower – a super popular glamping site.

It is not a single aspect that makes Orchard House deserving of this Unique Lodging award, but rather a larger understanding of what the modern traveler desires and expects.

Dean concludes, “Our guests are younger, and have different expectations than the travelers that frequent the other top award-winning inns. And we are simply thrilled to be recognized for being on the forefront of lodging trends.”
