The Westerville Inn Bed and Breakfast, Westerville Ohio, was originally built in 1854 to house a widow and her eleven children. Today this one-time log cabin sits on a half acre lot with perennial gardens, an herb garden, a fish pond and many bird feeders all fringed by a white picket fence. Inside the house you will find antiques, and quiet places for reading or relaxing. This wonderful setting, adjacent to the campus of Otterbein College, is surrounded by Alum Creek Park and is within walking distance to historic Uptown Westerville.
Although this is an historic inn retaining it’s antique look, it is high tech and “eco” conscious all the way. The janitorial supplies include environmentally aware “green” detergents for all their linens, biodegradable toilet and paper towels, hypoallergenic hand soaps in the bathrooms, among other heavier duty supplies for the cleaning personal. The inn also encourages their guests to recycle paper as well as cans and glass in the discreet trash bins in the trash closets found on each floor. I was impressed when I saw our maid’s cleaning / janitorial supplies she had on her cart.
The Westerville Inn Bed and Breakfast keeps up with the wifi technological advances of the 21st century as well by having high speed wifi throughout the inn. So after a day of sightseeing or perhaps visiting a child who is attending Otterbein College, you can return to your comfy room and boot up your computer, log onto your favorite online slots USA player-friendly website, and enjoy some online gambling. Whether you prefer traditional three and five reel online slots such as Enchanted Garden and Loose Caboose, exciting bonus round slots such as Prince of Sherwood and Food Fight, or progressive jackpots such as Aztec’s Millions and Jackpots Piñatas that pay out extraordinary sums of money to lucky players, you can just kick back and enjoy. Behind the Westerville Inn Bed and Breakfast perennial gardens, you can be enjoying an evening of gambling with no one suspecting what’s really happening within the privacy of the inn’s rooms.
Or if you need to get some work done or do a bit of shopping, the internet is reliable and rather fast. I watched my wife as she did a search for jewelry made from fake diamonds the last time we were there. I asked why she was looking for “fake” diamond anything. Apparently she was really looking for cubic zirconia jewelry. This synthetic, glittery gemstone is the best alternative for a real diamond. The online store where she finally found the styles she wanted had an abundance of rather stunning fake diamond rings at extremely reasonable prices.
My wife had seen a documentary about the blood diamond industry, and decided since Cubic zirconia and sterling silver are conflict-free jewelry, she was going to take a look at what was available. When her “fake diamond” rings and necklaces arrived I have to admit that to my eye they were virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. And the next time we stayed at the Westerville Inn Bed and Breakfast, my wife was wearing only fake diamond jewelry!
If you’re a visitor, unfamiliar with the climate around the Columbus region, you may want to pack according to the season (i.e., short sleeves in the moderately hot and humid summers, parkas and snow boots in the moderately snowy winters, et cetera). At any time of the year, however, you’ll enjoy the perfect mix of “town and country” that Ohio does better than anyone!
Come, sit down and start your morning with a hot cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Share stories and enjoy chilled juice and a fruit plate. Sigh with pleasure over oatmeal Pancakes and Brenda’s own Cider Syrup. End your breakfast by remembering to take your chocolate favor resting beside your plate and save it for later in the day, when a sweet pick-me-up is in order.
“The college search has taken us from Valpo, to Butler, to Otterbein. We stayed at the Marriott, the Fairfield and a REAL HOME…yours! We loved our stay at your gorgeous B&B. Even more than that, we loved the warmth and love that fills your home, the Westerville Inn Bed and Breakfast. It’s possible we’ll be back, if our daughter decides that Otterbein College is the school for her AND that she is accepted. We’re keeping our fingers crossed ” – The Cobbs
