A stately home outside Granville features resort-style amenities and an impressive art collection.
The Welsh Hills Inn bills itself as a country bed-and-breakfast. While its picturesque setting outside Granville gets the country part right, this inn is more grand estate than quaint B&B. The stately large house perched high on a hill holds three second-story guest rooms, one with private bath and two with an adjacent shared bathroom. Our king-bed room featured lush fabrics, deep pile carpeting, original artwork and antique furnishings. Special touches included a wide-screen HD TV on the wall opposite the bed, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the inn, his-and-hers terry robes, and a vase of fresh daisies. Decorated in a traditional style while making good use of the many antiques and original art works collected by the owners, the first-floor common areas are spacious and bright. Evening wine and cheese is served from the first-floor wet bar, and on chilly nights you might find a crackling fire waiting for you in the living room. Morning coffee or tea is ready at your specified time, and breakfast is a gourmet delight (ours was centered around a delicious potato, artichoke and cheese frittata) served by candlelight in the cozy breakfast nook. It's easy to relax here -- the inn boasts a swimming pool, hiking trails, a front porch lined with rocking chairs and hammocks strung about the hillside. Spa treatments and carriage rides can be arranged by the innkeepers who are gracious and eager to accommodate their guests. Rates from $105 to $165, not including taxes and fees.
