About the Property

We are now in our off season and accepting extended stay reservations here at Harpster-Davenport Guest House starting October 2016 thru April 30, 2017. Please call for more information at 419-602-1009.

Relax with quiet times, watch song birds flitting about, spot an occasional Eagle soaring overhead, listen to the wind whispering through the big White Pine’s boughs, watch the lazily drifting clouds move slowly past, catch a shooting star in the night time sky while enjoying an open-pit fire or lounge in the outdoor hot tub as it soothes away your cares and prepares you for another day.

There is a separate outdoor entrance leading up to the private second floor apartment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1842

About the owner: One of life’s pleasures is creating unique, fond and lasting memories for ourselves, our friends, our guests and the ones we love.

Why the Owner Chose Bellevue, OH, USA:
We wanted to offer guests an opportunity to experience an alternative in lodging separate from hotels, motels, B&B's during their visit to our area, whether it's for a fun energizing vacation or some much needed down time for relaxation. Based on European style accommodations experienced from our own personal travels, Harpster-Davenport Guest House was created to share with our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
When we came across this Greek Revival 1842, it was desperately in need of repairs and much loving care as it had been sadly neglected over the years. The moment we stepped inside, the house said 'home' to us. We didn't want to change the character of her, but rather, repair and update where necessary and put our own personal touches into her to make her 'our home'. It's been a work of love since 2008 and of course, there have been lots of surprises along the way too.
