I stayed here on January 1 and fell in love with the place. From rooms and common areas that resembled the Mansions at MGM Grand to the delicious meals (the twist on the quiche for breakfast was so ingenious! ) to the gift bag when I left, Joy and Allen approached every step in their hospitality “duties” with passion and, no pun intended, joy. I could feel how much they loved creating a delightful experience, enjoyed serving their guests and prided themselves on delivering top notch service. It doesn’t hurt that they have a plethora of expertise to draw from which makes them fascinating to talk with when they are not working. I will definitely be back!
Recently stayed for 3 nights and hope to visit again in the near future. Allen and Joy are excellent hosts. They made us feel so welcome. They were great about providing vegetarian breakfasts for one of our group. Excellent breakfasts every day ands different dishes every morning!! The breakfasts were so big we found ourselves having a late lunch and not even eating dinner each day. Beautiful setting at the top of the hill. Very comfortable beds and very clean. Highly recommend!!
The pictures on their web site don’t do justice to the HUGE impressive rooms and magnificent views!
Very expensive and plush decor abounds throughout this inn and it truely is an amazing experience!
And Joy and Allen are simply the greatest hosts one could imagine!
They bend over backwards to accomodate any and all your needs and I thoroughly LOVED talking with them and sharing a good laugh!
Joy is an EXCELLENT chef and the meals are very good and the atmosphere is amazing!
The entire property is so beautiful with all the landscaping and decor it’s simply not possible to convey it in a photograph!
The only regret I had was that I couldn’t stay longer but I WILL return as soon and as often as I can!
Thank you Joy and Allen for the greatest weekend getaway we have ever had!
The owners were very friendly and, the rooms were clean and comfy too. We loved the food that was served for breakfast. It was delicious and plentiful. We were very happy to find such a nice place that allowed us to bring our Pomeranian.
Joy and Allen are gracious and accommodating, hospitality and personality were wonderful. We spent one night there with a group of 8, we had visited a few wineries and then a birthday celebration at The Inn. The prearranged dinner was delicious, chicken marsala and chicken cordon bleu along with the birthday cake that is the Inn’s special double chocolate with ice cream from a local supplier that has been rated in the top 10! Thanks again Joy for that accommodation! However you choose to spent your time at The Inn at Dresden you will want to come back or at least share your experience with friends so they can experience the view, the history, the ambiance…just everything at The Inn at Dresden!
Stayed August 2014, traveled with friends
My friend and I traveled back to Ohio the first of August to attend the Longaberger Bee in Columbus. Our first stop was a couple of days in Dresden, Ohio we wanted to arrive a couple of days early for the BEE so as to be able to stay at the Inn of Dresden. This was our 6th time to stay at the Inn. The new owners, Joy and Allen, are just delightful and work so hard to meet everyone’s needs and to make your stay an awesome experience. We stayed in the Sternwheeler room and enjoyed the outdoor wrap around porch each evening. The Inn sits on a very high hill overlooking the community of Dresden and the Sternwheeler room provides a great view of the area. The two breakfast meals that Joy prepared were just excellent and we decided to do dinner the second evening we stayed and the dinner meal was fabulous. On the morning we were leaving we joined another couple on the sunroom porch for breakfast and Joy joined us to chat. We enjoyed visiting with her on their plans for the Inn and their love for the location and community. What a marvelous time we had…the best stay ever! We look forward to next year and our trip back to Ohio…it will certainly include a stay at the Inn of Dresden. Thanks Allen and Joy for such a relaxing enjoyable stay at the Inn. Vicki C. and Lynn S.
