Your Hosts, Bobbi & Jeff....
The Welsh Hills Inn, a country bed and breakfast, is owned and operated by hosts, Jeff and Bobbi Noe. As a second career for both, Jeff and Bobbi have thoroughly enjoyed establishing and growing this charming property, nestled within the rolling Welsh Hills, into an award-winning Inn.
“It has been so incredibly rewarding to meet and host guests from around the world, calling many of them friends upon their departure and looking forward to their return”. This is a cherished benefit they did not necessarily foresee upon starting this new venture, but is what keeps them wanting to improve and be better each day moving forward.
Both Bobbi and Jeff, natives of Ohio, relocated to Granville when they joined Owens Corning’s Science and Technology Center upon graduating college as engineers. Bobbi spent 27 years of her career with Owens Corning focused on the development and launch of new products and processes; while after 5 years, Jeff moved on to focus his energies leading Sales and Marketing teams across the country for Nalco Chemical Company based in Chicago. These years of hard work and travel set the ground work for what they were to create at the Inn.
After more than 30 years, the Granville community is home and very important to them and their 17-year old daughter, Emily, who is a gifted vocalist and lover of all animals - big and small. Dedication to community and charitable causes is inherent in their make-up. Aspects of the community are found all around the Inn including their private collection of paintings depicting historic buildings and vintage scenes of the village and Denison University; the artisan gift shop which is filled with local handmade artisan treasures; and at breakfast and dinner where they utilize the local farm-to-table philosophy. Also, both provide active leadership on local non-profit and for profit boards, providing strategic planning and consulting services on a regular basis to many.
The Inn is currently sponsoring the “Turn up the Pink” project. Working with local glass artist, Aaron Buchholz, a series of beautiful hand blown glass orbs, ornaments and vases where created for the Inn’s gift shop. Proceeds from the sales are donated to the OSUCCC-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.
While it has now been several years since leaving the corporate world, Jeff and Bobbi remember their lives during that time very well. While they loved it, they also understood the need to get away to recharge. Their aim at the Inn is to provide everything you need to accomplish this.
