The Wishmaker House B&B and Winery is located in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Richland County. We are situated just an hour north of Columbus and an hour and a half south of Cleveland, making us are the perfect getaway destination.

The Winery, features 9 wines made on site from regional grapes. Originally built as a doctor's home in 1890, the B & B was the home of Myer's Wishmaker House Furniture for 47 years. Housed in a section of the former SanDar Smorgasbord, Brumby's Coffeehouse & Pizzeria serves coffee roasted on site, smoothies, frappes and pizza in a casual atmosphere.

Unique shopping can be found at Elzy Milling and Trade, Griffon Jewelers, Possum Run Greenhouse-nationally known for their exquisite fuchsia's and poinsettia's, and Wade Gardens-everything for outdoor landscaping needs and fabulous gift shop to find items for outdoors and indoors, all located in the ClearFork Valley. The Blueberry Patch in Lexington features Ohio's premier blueberry plantation. On site are a tea room, an extensive gift shop, greenhouse and the newly opened Winery 1285. The winery features house made wines including blueberry wines made from fruit grown on the 27 acre blueberry farm. Winery 1285 is open evenings Wednesday – Saturday; retail areas are open every day.

Outdoor activities are plentiful with the Richland B & O Trail easily accessible from the village. The trail is a paved 18.4 mile bike trail connecting Mansfield, Lexington, Bellville and Butler. The trail passes through some of the most scenic parts of North Central Ohio. Hiking is another outdoor activity to enjoy in the "Heart of Ohio"' no matter what the season. 12 miles of trails traverse scenic fields and woods of Malabar State Park. Mohican State Park boasts several hiking trails from beginners to more difficult trails, along with an 8 mile and 25 mile mountain bike trail. While visiting Malabar Farm don't forget to tour the "Big House", the home of Louis Bromfield, a Pulitzer Prize winning author and advocate of "sustainable" farming methods.A must-visit in the area is the Ohio State Reformatory. The legendary movie "The Shawshank Redemption" was filmed at this historic former Ohio prison, which now offers regular tours to visitors.

When you are ready to relax, wind down at the Wishmaker House Bed and Breakfast located in the heart of downtown Bellville. Recently voted the Best B & B in Ohio by the readers of Ohio Magazine, the B & B features 8 rooms all with private baths a full freshly cooked breakfast, Wi-Fi throughout the building and a wine bar featuring house made wines, small plates, sandwiches and salads.
