+GroveCityCollege and Slippery Rock University​ parents will be picking up their students in a few weeks.  We still have some rooms available.  Even if it looks like we have all the rooms booked, please add yourself to our waiting list as many parents have been shifting their reservations as the day gets closer and the students know what day they are actually finished.

Thank you to Cathy Saylor (not pictured) who had a gathering of ladies in the common areas for a jewelry party. The common area is a perfect venue for small parties (16 or less) where you want that "home" feel.

Interested in a jewelry party of your own?

Join us on April 16 & 17, 2015, for our 11th annual conference: Family Matters: The Past, Present, and Future of the American Family. We did something different to choose this year's conference topic – we asked our student fellows. Their response – family! At first, we were surprised.

If you know you are coming to Grove City in the near future or even Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov and you want to stay at the Terra Nova House, please book early.  No joke...I checked my reservations over the last several weeks and I am taking 3-6 reservations per day!  I can't keep up with the laundry because the phone keeps ringing!  God certainly has blessed us!

68 years ago today (March 13th), my grandmother had no idea the amazing statistical anomaly she created.  Happy birthday, Mom!

40 years ago today (March 13th), my mother was blessed to share her birthday with her third son!  Happy birthday, me!

11 years ago today (March 13th), my wife hung in for a 20+ labor to bring our daughter, Renee, into the world on my birthday.  Happy birthday, Renee!

So for all those that find Friday, March 13th creepy...here at Terra Nova House we celebrate and cherish the day!

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 - 2 weeks 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

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 - 3 months 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

We enjoyed our stay at Terra Nova House two weeks ago. It was a great halfway point between Indiana and NYC where we were headed. The home was beautifully decorated, very clean and the extra attention to details such as snacks in the gathering room, brownies and cheese/fruit plate on arrival were lovely. Ryan was a wonderful host and chef. The breakfast was delicious. He also gave us ideas of attractions to see in the area. We hope to stay here again! Thanks Ryan!

Holly - Thank you for taking the time to review the Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast. We are pleased that you chose Grove City, PA as your halfway point while traveling and are very happy you enjoyed all the little amenities and breakfast! We do hope to see you again when your travels take you through the Mercer County, PA region. - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Loved staying at Terra Nova House as it felt like home away from home. All the rooms are very nicely decorated and well maintained. The breakfasts were very generous in portion sizes (too much for me!). Lots of snacks and tea/coffee available for those who want that. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks so much for making us feel so welcome!
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
Jenny - Thank you for enjoying your stay at Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast. We most definitely want to make it your home away from home. Yes, our breakfast portions are on the larger size as we do not want you to leave hungry - also, we like to save you money by being able to skip lunch (most times)! We look forward to your next visit to Grove City, PA! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

My husband and I have stayed at Terra Nova several times and it is our favorite bed and breakfast! Ryan is very helpful with the reservations and the rooms are always so comfortable to stay in with private bathrooms. It is going to be our first choice whenever we visit our sons at college!
Response from the owner - 2 weeks ago
We appreciate your repeat visits to Terra Nova House when you are in the Grove City area! Do make sure to book those college visits very early though or you may have to resort to your second choice...and who wants that? See you next time! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Staying at the Terra Nova house was an absolute joy. Ryan was able to accommodate our late check in, gave some great choices to eat dinner at that were within walking distance, and supplied many snacks and goodies that blew us away. The breakfast was incredible. Coming from the catering world, I really appreciated not only how tasty the food was (I had the pancake with baked in apple bits, she had the oatmeal - both were scrumptious) but also the appearance of the plate too was right on point. Extremely professional with much attention paid to detail. The house was spotless and included every amenity that we could think of. I will definitely be returning, thank you for such a fantastic experience Ryan!

Thank you for your stay and wonderful review of the Terra Nova House Bed and Breakfast! We take great pride in our hospitality, attention to details, amenities and breakfasts and it is great to hear that our guests appreciate all of it! An innkeeper must wear a lot of hats and it is from all my odd little jobs in high school and college that I find have helped me the most (one of which was assisting with catering at Penn State Behrend). Thank you again for the kind words and we most definitely look forward to your next stay. - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeper

Wonder stay at the Terra Nova House. Ryan was very friendly and welcoming and offered good suggestions for local dining and shopping. The B&B was spotlessly clean and our room was very comfortable. Loved the cheese/fruit plate and delicious brownie. The attention to detail was lovely. Would definitely recommend this B&B.

I was pleasantly surprised when I was greeted by the owner in the parking lot. He was warm and welcoming and carried my luggage to my room. This BB was simply lovely and everything was so well thought out. Completely secure with digital locks and each floor had a coffeemaker, fridge and snacks for guests. My room was neat, clean and I loved that I had my own bathroom (no sharing with other guests). In addition to everything else, this little gem was so reasonably priced. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast and am looking forward to my next visit to the area because I will enjoy staying at Terra Nova House again!

Lisa - Thank you for the great review! It is always my pleasure to be able to meet the guests in the parking lot to assist with their luggage when possible. We are very proud to be able to offer complimentary snacks, beverages, pastries and fruit/chocolate/cheese plates to our guests. We know what we like to have available to us when traveling to a hotel or bed and breakfast...and that is exactly what we provide to our guests. We look forward to your next stay! - Ryan Mercer, Owner/Innkeeeper
