This place was beyond great! They had snacks prepared and waiting for us when we arrived, they have beverages available 24/7, and they have a decent movie library on hand. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was modern and nice. This was better than any hotel! The staff was VERY accomidating, and breakfast was fantastic. The breakfast was served with restaurant professionalism but had a home made feel. Great place all around. I'll stay here any time im in thr area.

Thanks for the amazing review! We are glad you enjoyed all the extras that hotels just don't offer. It's not difficult...we simply treat our guests how we would want to be treated if we were staying (and that means being spoiled and not being overcharged for snacks/beverages). We look forward to your next stay! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

We had an amazing stay at Terra Nova House. My mom and I were on a girls shopping weekend in Grove City, and wanted to try a B&B rather than a chain hotel. It was probably the best decision we made while in Grove City. Ryan is an excellent host and has truly thought of everything you might possibly need. From the delicious fruit, chocolate, cheese tray to the baked goods and treats in the room it was an awesome place to stay. Each room has a theme and the house is really cute. Ryan is beyond helpful and arranged several tours and recommended things to do (other than shopping) during our stay. P.S. The breakfast was also amazing, and probably deserves a 5 star review in itself. Thanks for a great trip! We will for sure stay here again next time we return to GC!

We are so thrilled that you chose Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast over a chain hotel! Unlike a chain hotel, we like to spoil our guests, as you quickly realized upon check-in with all the complimentary extras. We look forward to serving you and your mom again the next time you come to Grove City, PA. - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

It's so much better staying at the Terra Nova than the other hotels around Grove City. Very well run establishment. Only problem is it's so popular it can be hard to get a reservation on popular school visiting weekends.
Response from the owner - a year ago
We most certainly agree that staying at the Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast is much better than a hotel. You are correct that we are very popular with the colleges in the local area and we do have people on waiting lists up to 5 years in advance for the major events. Best to always book very early. We look foward to your next stay with us! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Absolutely loved the hospitality, Ryan really made it feel like a home away from home getaway experience! We stayed in the North Atlantic Room it was warm & cozy with lots of history around the room! We checked out the local North County Brew Co, great atmosphere & the beer was fresh! Morning breakast was filling & scrumptious! Overall stay was phenomenal, we will be back!
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Thank you for staying with us and for the wonderful review! The North Atlantic room is perfect for all those sea loving people and North Country Brewing Company in Slippery Rock (8 miles away) is a favorite for all those who like micro-brews -- sailors and beer...perfect combination! We look forward to your future stays with us. -- Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

i had to travel to Grove City for work and in previous trips stayed at bland hotels in the area. i thought a stay at Terra Nova would be a nice change. it TOTALLY was, the room was clean and so lovely, and breakfast the next morning was delightful. my only gripe is admittedly a quirk: details are not my thing. the need to put in my breakfast in a particular way rubbed me the wrong way, i realize it's for efficiency sake but for my part, it was just annoying. additionally, on the day of arrival, i had anxiety about arriving at a certain time. i'm travelling from about 5 hours away, the weather was bad and the roads are windy. i had to stay in constant contact with the B&B to ensure that i would not get penalized for arriving after my initial started arrival time. i know that from a customer service standpoint the B&B wanted to provide a warm welcome and set the tone for the stay, i completely understand that, and appreciate it. but that day was a nightmare in regards to the roads and a prompt arrival time was beyond my control. in general though, it was a wonderful experience. there was fruit+cheese plate to enjoy later in the evening, i even had a gluten free & dairy free brownie that was SO GOOD i requested the recipe. i would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to any of my friends and colleagues.

Thank you for choosing the Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast (TNHBNB) instead of a hotel for your Grove City stay. We are glad you enjoyed the experience, the fruit/chocolate/cheese plate and the gluten and dairy free brownie. We were pleased to share the "secret" gluten and dairy free brownie recipe. We are very happy to hear that you would stay again and recommend us. I am going to elaborate on a few of your points regarding "the details" as many people who just stay in hotels (or even some B&Bs) may feel the same way you did about the "over communication" prior to their stay at TNHBNB. You do have valid points and they are worth sharing for others to be informed. B&Bs are different than hotels in that they are not staffed 24 hour a day. The innkeeper is typically the only person doing everything (cooking, cleaning, shopping, laundry, checking-in, finances, marketing, etc) and runs a very tight schedule. Every innkeeper and B&B is different, which makes B&Bs exciting places to stay. At TNHBNB, although I have several part-time employees who mainly take care of the cleaning, I do almost everything else while trying to balance my family life (wife and 2 children -- 11 and 8). And, since I tend to do things a little different than most B&Bs when it comes to check-ins and breakfasts, I have found that it is extremely helpful for me to have breakfast selections and arrival times in advance. Also, my prior career (15 years) was as a software engineer where I had to be very detailed and think of every possible scenario, so I have carried that mentality over to running TNHBNB. For breakfast, we give you your choice of time, main dish, sides and drinks. We make almost everything individually so that we can accommodate dietary restrictions (gluten free, dairy free, etc) by making substitutions without imposing these restriction on all our guests. Many of our dishes require 15 minutes to prep and 45-60 minutes to bake. Without knowing your breakfast selections in advance, it would be impossible to do it the way we do. Some innkeepers simply serve you what they want to make because they make large batches; however, although easy for the guests and innkeepers, we have found this to be wasteful as people have different likes and tastes. It also ensures that you are 99% likely to enjoy your breakfast because you selected it yourself. As to the format that we recommend you send it to us, that is for efficiency of the guests. Simple text via an email is sufficient. Some guests have thought they needed to print out the menu, write all over it, scan it back in and then email it to us --- that is wasteful and not our intention. For the check-ins, we do ask that you communicate your estimated arrival time (typically between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM) and also communicate with us during your travels if your estimated arrival time varies by more than 30 minutes or when you are 30 minutes away. This is not a requirement, but is greatly appreciated. The "after 6 PM late fee" is only applied to those who have not prearranged a later check-in or who do not communicate that they will be arriving later than originally planned. It is there to deter guests from saying they will arrive at 3:00 PM, but then decide to go shopping, then to dinner and then show up for check-in after 10:00 PM without letting us know at all. That scenario is very disruptive and has occurred quite frequently before implementing this policy. For those considering THNBNB, think of it like you are staying at a friend's house. You would tell your friend what time you would be arriving and if you were going to be early or late. A good host would ask you what you would like to eat. And, a good host would show you around their house if you were unfamiliar with it. In other words, they would show you hospitality. Thank you again for your stay, your review and for bringing up these points. Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

We had to cancel and try to reschedule our reservation at the last minute. Ryan was extemely helpful and allowed us to reschedule for the next weekend - no problem. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious - thank you for a great stay! We'll be back - highly recommended!!
Response from the owner - a year ago
We were happy to accommodate your rescheduling! Things happen, we understand that. That is one of the nice things of always dealing with the owner of the establishment rather than some random person - things get done fast and right. We are glad that you enjoyed the room and found breakfast to be delicious. We look forward to your next visit and all those that come from your high recommendation! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

The website does not do this place justice. Amazing breakfast, kind staff, awesome atmosphere, and comfy beds. Would stay again for sure.

Thank you for your stay. We try to show as true of a representation as possible on our website; however, we like our guests to be surprised with all the extras that we offer that you typically don't get (at least for free) at hotels, motels or other bed and breakfasts. We look forward to your next stay! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper
