MANSFIELD, OH, February 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- A new bed and breakfast inn has opened in the delightful small town of Bellville, Ohio, just 10 miles south of Mansfield. After a year of dramatic renovations, a local family opened Wishmaker House in a beautifully restored historic home. Featuring eight guestrooms, a stunning 1,200-square-foot suite, a common living area and a state-of-the-art kitchen, Wishmaker House is the perfect blend of modern and historic. Dramatic artisan details found throughout include hand-crafted and restored woodwork, stained-glass windows and doors, repurposed antiques and locally made works of art. Details and booking information are found at www.WishmakerHouse.com

Brad and Karen Smith bought the 10,000-square-foot historic 1890s structure with no plans to launch a bed and breakfast, and every intention of making it their family home. But after the Smiths - who own the local hardware store -- began restoring the once-vacant former physician's office, the family decided to act on Karen and daughter Cassie's longtime dream of owning a B&B. All eight guestrooms feature a deluxe, private, en suite bath, complimentary internet access and TV. A full, home-cooked breakfast is included every morning. The large, gourmet kitchen, bar area, outdoor patio and front porch are not only great for relaxing and taking in Bellville's home-town feel, but also make Wishmaker House ideal for intimate weddings, parties, meetings, reunions or luncheons.
In addition to offering visitors to this beautiful, pastoral area of north central Ohio a luxurious bed and breakfast experience, the Smiths will add a Winery and Wine Bar, both of which are set to open in March. They'll feature wine made on-site with grapes grown in Ohio and New York with tastings, wine by the bottle or glass and light snacks. The winery will be open Monday-Saturday, and the Wine Bar will be open Thursday-Saturday, 4-10 p.m. Located just minutes from top area attractions, such as Snow Trails Ski Resort, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Ohio State Reformatory, the Shawshank Trail, and Malabar Farm and Mohican State Park, Wishmaker House Bed and Breakfast is the perfect location to relax after a day on the ski slopes, a haunting ghost hunt or a thrilling race at the track.
A destination unlike any other, Mansfield is home to a wealth of unusual travel adventures and experiences, such as visiting the working farm where Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were married to spending the night in a haunted former state prison where Hollywood blockbuster movies are filmed. Breathtaking scenery, rural and hometown experiences, as well as hiking, biking, golf, cross-country and downhill skiing, bird watching and loads of other outdoor adventures attract families and visitors of all ages.
