Welcome to The White Oak Inn
Your perfect getaway starts here, at our bed and breakfast on a secluded country road in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country. Whether your idea of heaven is relaxing with a glass of wine on the wide front-porch, or an activity-packed weekend shopping, sightseeing, antiquing, wine-tasting, trying to solve one of our murder mysteries, or pursuing outdoor activities, you’ve found the perfect place to do all of these things.
Conveniently located to explore Holmes County and Ohio’s Amish area, and just a short drive from Columbus or Cleveland, our Danville, Ohio bed and breakfast is close to Kenyon College, Tree Frog Canopy Tours zipline, Longaberger Basket headquarters, and historic Roscoe Village. The Kokosing Gap Trail and Mohican Valley Trail both start in nearby Danville. The area abounds with antique stores, cheese factories, furniture stores, wineries, quilt shops, and potteries.
Situated on 14 wooded private acres and surrounded by farms and conservation land, the inn offers plenty of space to relax and enjoy nature.
Breakfasts and dinners at The White Oak Inn are a memorable experience, with everything made fresh daily, featuring in-season local produce and herbs and vegetables from the inn’s garden. A complimentary full breakfast is always included with your stay.
The main inn building is the former Crise family home, built with red and white oak cut on the property, and featuring rooms with generous proportions and large windows, and a fifty-foot-long front porch. The Inn’s common room and dining room are in this building. The Guesthouse (formerly the chicken barn) features three cozy fireplace rooms each with a private entrance off the front porch. Celebrating an anniversary or honeymoon? You’ll find a selection of rooms and cottages with king-size beds, fireplaces and two-person whirlpool tubs.
Our wedding gazebo nestled in the pine trees provides a perfect romantic setting for elopements and weddings, or a delightful spot to enjoy a picnic for two.
We offer many different romance packages to enhance your stay including flowers, chocolate-dipped strawberries, massages, and more.
At various times through the year, we have special events such as murder mysteries, a Spring Nature weekend, and Oakstock, our own celebration of friendship and music.
Dougal, the inn dog, and Rascal, the inn cat, will greet you at the front door. Well-behaved guest pets are welcome in two of our guesthouse rooms.
We’re always delighted to host groups and special events such as family reunions, small weddings, or business retreats.
Whether it’s for a romantic interlude or a fun time at one of our special events, come and escape to the middle of nowhere. We’ve made cookies for you!
