After a long Saturday completing our Pre Cana for the church I thought I would take Read on a surprise night away. I took him to The Orchard House in Granville, Ohio. It was our first experience at a B & B together and we had the best time. The house was so beautiful-I wanted all of the fabulous antiques the owners had found. Our room was titled The Walden Room. It was spotless and so comfortable. I loved everything from the curtains to the wallpaper to the antique desk.
This is where we hung out, drank hot chocolate, ate homemade chocolate chip cookies and read the newspaper. Bliss.
This was the beautiful dining room where we had wine and cheese hour with the other wonderful guests staying at the house.
All pictures were taken from The Orchard House Website
These are a few photos we took ourselves.
We were able to take our wine out back and visit with all of the animals. They had many more than we took photos of but it was FREEZING for the beginning of October! They had llamas, dogs, ducks, a potbellied pig and more. They were all so funny...especially the pig lovingly named Bacon :).
This guy was in the front next to the house. He ran right over say hello. I must say he was a tad annoyed he ran all the way over and we didn't have anything to feed him.
They had an adorable breakfast nook next to the dining room with individual tables. I really liked the other couples that were staying at the house. But after spending the night before with them at a local pub it was nice to eat our breakfast alone. The breakfast was amazing! Apple pancake and the BEST bacon I have ever eaten in my life!!! It tasted like a cross between bacon and candy. Delicious!!
The house is only a short ride to downtown Granville where we had dinner. I wish we would have arrived at the house earlier so we could have taken advantage of the shops downtown. If anyone finds themselves in Granville, I highly recommend The Orchard House!
