About Jennifer Franch
I grew up next door to the farmhouse and it has been in my family for 115 years. I have always dreamed of owning the home and passing it along to my children. It was completely gutted and remodeled by the local Amish except for the original hardwood floors and wood trim. Only a few major changes in structure were made to accommodate making larger bathrooms. My husband and I just decided this year that it was time to officially rent out the home and share it with guests so they can enjoy the serene country setting like we do!
Jennifer Franch purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2011
Why Jennifer Franch chose Mount Gilead
The Smith Farmhouse is like a step back in time. It is so relaxing, peaceful and private and I haven't met a person that doesn't love the home and property.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
It was always told that the Underground Railroad ran through the home. The first known year that people lived in the house is 1948, but it is possible that it was as early as 1933. It is a very historic home and a wonderful getaway just less than an hour from the city.

Our family really enjoyed the Smith Farm House
This is a very peaceful property with a lot of history and heritage. We were so blessed to have found such a well maintained and peaceful place to stay. This house is very well equipped and the land around the property is really quite beautiful. I just hope we can come back next year:)

From the rocking chairs on the wide front porch to the many seating areas in the house and on the rear deck guests can enjoy all that this property has to offer. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is an excellent place to be rejuvenated. With 2 or more beds in each bedroom and 2 full bathrooms plus two sleeper sofas this house can accommodate large groups. We highly recommend the Smith Farmhouse for your next get-together or getaway.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The quaint farm house is clean, organized, and very quiet. We will be back!
Perfect place for a small family reunion!
The farmhouse is situated on a quiet, peaceful country road, and the house itself is bright and clean, tastefully furnished, and well-equipped. The porch and deck are wonderful places to gather and to watch the deer and possums wander by and to listen to the birds. Bring binoculars if you are a bird-watcher!
It was wonderful meeting you all and we hope are able to stay again in the future!
The newly renovated family home is located in the country nestled between Galion and Mt. Gilead. It is a very relaxing and peaceful country home.
