Shopping in Granville and Columbus

Columbus is rising as a fashion mecca and has become fasion’s best kept secret. As headquarters to retail giants like L Brands, Express, DSW and Abercrombie & Fitch, Columbus also has the third highest concentration of fashion designers behind only New York and Los Angeles.

Many of Columbus’ neighborhoods offer chic boutiques from independent fashion retailers and designers. The Short North Arts District is full of one-of-a-kind shops for men and women alike.  Granville is home to many unique, locally-owned businesses that will surely catch your eye, too!

Easton has stores like Tiffany’s, Nordstrom, and Louis Vuitton and is just 15 minutes east of downtown and 30 minutes from The Inn. This indoor/outdoor mall, with its unique village setting and broad assortment of restaurants, entertainment, and retailers, is nothing short of a shopper's paradise.

Polaris Fashion Place, Ohio’s largest shopping and dining destination, features an indoor/outdoor mall and close by stores such as Cabelas, and IKEA (opening summer 2017). Just north of Columbus is Tanger Outlets, Ohio’s outlet mall with more than 90 name brands.

While the property itself is spectacular, the hospitality of Bobbi and Jeff is unparalelled by any other place we have ever stayed. Their two extremely friendly dogs, Ellie and Wrigley, complete the feel of home. Jeff is a terrific chef with fabulous and filling breakfasts, and he prepared a pre-planned dinner for us as good as any fine dining restaurant. Bobbi’s easy going service at meals pays attention to every little detail. Original artwork adorns nearly every inch of free space on walls throughout the home. The Berllan Glyn King Grande Guest Suite has a wonderful, private screened-in porch between the main porch and the pool area, perfect for reading or sharing a sandwich from one of the restaurants in town. The suite’s bath is fully appointed, complete with a steam shower and huge, freestanding soaking tub. This was our second visit and we foresee many more to come!
