Simply the Best!

We LOVE this place. Sarah's rooms take romantic to a new level. We stayed over the Christmas holidays and the decorations were breathtaking. The breakfasts were scrumptious. It was a bonus waking up to find a beautiful peacock perched on our balcony. We highly recommend this peaceful romantic retreat.

inlove with the woods

This place was such an amazing escape out of the city life. Such beautiful scenery and the welcoming woods that seclude you from the rest of the world. Sandra was an amazing host and really made sure that we were happy with our experience. We actually won this one night stay off of a radio game from the blitz and like another guest posted below, she upgraded us to a bigger suite. We went and got dinner at the Buxton Inn in Granville which is only 5 minutes from Willowbrooke. We got home and had a few beers and relaxed in the jacuzzi while we watched a movie that we chose out of the large selection of vhs'. We actually took a late night stroll down the driveway which was super relaxing to be able to see the stars. We awoke and had breakfast served to us which was delicious and the cherry on top is there are peacocks on this property. We had such a great time, thanks again Sandra!

Very good

Regrettably it was only a one-night stay, but it was well worth it. I had a lovely room, very comfortable and clean. The place is beautiful and quiet. Breakfast was delicious -- scrambled eggs, french toast, strawberries, coffee and juice. Highly recommended!

InnSide Tip - Dinner in Granville
There are lots of eating places in Granville, just five minutes from this B & B. I had a great Italian dinner, but you have all kinds of options in this beautiful historical town.

peaceful retreat

Our stay at Willowbrook is always wonderful. Everything from the beauty, to the softness of the sheets. A bed that is like no other you will not want to get up. Willowbrook is a home that you feel comfortable and relaxed in. Clean and the romantic candles makes for a lovers dream night. Breakfast is always delicious. The peacocks and raccoon are natures way of a camera moments dream. We have stayed here many times and planning to stay again soon.

Simply Fabulous!

If you are looking for a truly fabulous B&B experience-look no further! Sandra is absolutely wonderful-not to mention her cooking is delicious! I wish all my breakfasts were that good. The inn's eclectic decor and extra touches of luxury make this a unique and pleasant stay. Our room was clean and extra comfortable-exactly what we needed to relax and recharge. We're already planning our next trip back. Thank you WillowBrooke for your top notch hospitality-the weekend was exactly what we needed!

Very peaceful,relaxing and romantic

My husband and I stayed at the Willowbrook B&B last weekend and absolutely LOVED it. The private cottage was like a high end furnished apartment...complete with snacks, robes and candles! The hot tub was perfect. The setting was perfect. A perfect romantic getaway.

InnSide Tip - Off the beaten track
Willowbrook B&B is off the beaten track but well worth the trip.

Newlywed Nightmare

I'm glad everyone else had a great experience with Sandra, but we did not! She was sweet when we ordered the room, but every other interaction was less than hospitable. She was very upset and annoyed that we got there half an hour late the night of our wedding. She let us know quite sternly that we had to keep it down, as if we were children. Our entire night was tainted by her rude and condescending tone. The accommodations were beautiful, but we hoped her welcome just 5 hours after our wedding would have been equally as beautiful. I would never go back again, not because the setting wasn't beautiful, but Sandra's spirit and way of treating us certainly was not.
The Johnsons

Management Response
The interaction with the guest was so brief, I feel there was a misinterpretation of what was said. The arrival time had been extended throughout the evening with actual arrival being midnight. I did respectfully mention the need to be quiet as possible so as not to disturb the other guests as the hour was late. They were taken to their suite and quick instructions were given on how to use the different special amenities in the suite. They were left to enjoy their wedding night. With only four and a half hours left before I had to start baking for their breakfast, I retired for the night. In 23 years of innkeeping this is the first negative review that I have ever received, written or verbal, so it is quite unsettling. It was never my intent to make our guest feel uncomfortable. I want to make every guest feel welcome. You can see with all the previous reviews that I have been successful in this effort in the past. Sandra W. Gilson WillowBrooke Bed'n Breakfast

My wife and i had a wonderful stay at this b&b I found it on the net and was a little reserved about a b&b we have not visited. But to our amazement this was the best stay. We enjoyed the room,the breakfast,the surroundings,and the visit with the owner.

Truly Unbelievable!

This is truly the most unbelievable bed & breakfast ever! It was extremely peaceful, beautifully decorated, perfectly secluded & the exact dream location I was looking for to spend a quiet relaxing weekend away!!! I definitely will return to this amazing place as it was worth every penny to spend a weekend in the Garden Suite - from the beautiful Firelight Glass candles in every room to the wonderful fireplace & from the full kitchen to the very romantic heart shaped jacuzzi.... it was the most perfect weekend. Their website is 100% accurate when it says, "You won't want to leave....."

We love the private Garden Suite with wonderful views of the woods and wildlife. Breakfast is delicious and filling, served at a beautiful table. The innkeeper is genuinely concerned that your stay is the best experience possible. We will definitely be back for our fourth visit!

heaven

This has been the most perfect get away. From the beauty of the ground's to the gorgeous room or should I say home. That is exactly what it was like being in a quiet, friendly, serene, environment. From the wonderful peacocks, deer, woods, candlelight that would make any couple feel like cuddling. I can't say enough. You don't need for anything has every amenity Luxury of the best of the best. everyone here was very accommodating and friendly. Memories made this trip and will return to make new ones.

Girlfriends Get Away Weekend

This B&B was the perfect place for a small group get away. Six of us occupied 1 room & 2 suites in the main house. The garden suite, with a complete kitchen, was large enough for us to gather each evening for games & movies. We found that everything we needed was available for our use. The breakfasts were so delicious & plentiful that we needed only a snack at lunchtime. The main dining room was beautifully decorated & accented with green glassware for St, Patrick's Day / Spring. Our hosts were friendly & gracious, attending to our every need. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B. I am already making plans to return, this summer, with family members who will be visiting OH.

Most Romantic Weekend in 30 years!

Couldn't have been more delighted. From the great food to the service, the candlelight, great fireplace, scenery, even the ironed sheets and stoneware in our private area was the best. Comfort was oozying out...great private whirlpool room. We will return again and again.

Home away from home

Melissa and I go once per year but always try to visit twice each year. Willowbrooke gives us the opportunity to put normal life behind us and spend some relaxing and romantic rime together that normal life usually does not allow. The location is perfect, Sandra is a wonderful person and friend, and the Master Suite has a place in our hearts and brings us back each year.

Valentine Get-away

I wanted a relaxing, romance-filled weekend with my wife and couldn't have picked a better place than WillowBrooke Bed & Breakfast. The host were congenial and fixed a couple of fantastic breakfasts. The room we stayed in was not missing a thing. All of the little details were thought of. I have never stayed in a more beautifully decorated home.
