A stay at the Buxton Inn is a true historical experience. It’s been in continuous operation since 1812 and remains one of Granville, Ohio’s most-recognizable landmarks. Its charming New England–inspired architecture imbues a quaint yet upscale vibe, which you’ll also find in the individually appointed guest rooms and luxurious dining room (complete with fireplace).
Where you’ll stay: Guest rooms are scattered among four historical buildings. You’ll stay in either the Main House or the 1840-era Founders Hall.
Start your day with a complimentary continental breakfast.
Relax with a cup of coffee in the greenhouse, where sunlight pours in through the skylights and hanging plants add lushness to the space.
Spooky reputation: The inn was recently featured in an article on Cleveland.com for its haunted mysteries.
Go fishing at Lake Hudson, less than a mile from the hotel.
Most-famous guests: President Abraham Lincoln and William H. Harrison, two of three presidents to stay at the property.
Distance from Denison University: Less than a half mile.
Granville, Ohio: Historic University Town 34 Miles Outside Columbus
About a 40-minute drive from downtown Columbus, Granville sets itself apart with its New England–style character and historical homes. Denison University, the alma mater of Hollywood heavyweights Jennifer Garner and Steve Carrell, acts as the town’s centerpiece. Jennifer Garner has even stayed at the Buxton Inn. The campus sprawls across 900 acres, including a 550-acre biological reserve, which makes for a great spot to take a walk. If you want to get away from civilization even more, keep heading south to Lake Hudson. There, you’ll find family-friendly campgrounds, swimming in the warmer months, and fishing.
