Italianate villa dedicated to art...

Nestled in a leafy vale, next to a 1000-acre nature preserve, and a mile outside Yellow Springs, Ohio (the oasis of the Midwest), Glen House Inn offers art-filled, luxurious bed & breakfast accommodations to visitors from around the world.

This just in: we are included in Vacation Idea’s Dream Travel magazine as one of the top 20 weekend getaways in Ohio! Read about it here here.

The whole villa is an art gallery with the main hall featuring a rotating series of exhibitions of area artists, many available for purchase.

In addition to the luxurious rooms, guests have access to the living room, dining room and kitchen seating area, plus a veranda with tables and chairs and a 12' x 50' swimming pool in season. Chaise longues are available around the pool.

Across the pool from the 5000-square-foot villa is an historic remodeled barn dating to the 1700s, which was home to freed slaves during the Civil War.

Glen Helen, donated to Antioch College by Hugh Taylor Birch and dedicated to his daughter, Helen Birch Bartlett (herself the benefactor of a wing at Chicago's Art Institute), is directly adjacent to Glen House, and offers great hiking trails.

The 80-mile Little Miami Bike Trail, and John Bryan State Park are both less than a mile away.
