The Victorian Tudor Inn
This magnificant Tudor is centrally located in the heart of northcentral Ohio's vactionland
Thoroughly renovated and beautifully adorned with extensive art, period antiques and fine furnishings, The Victorian Tudor Inn offers meticulous elegance of the past with the comforts and luxurious amenities of today.
This home, ". . . the prettiest in the city" (Bellevue Gazette, 1908), was designed by the famous Fremont, Ohio architect, S. H. Shively, for Newton and Moina Greenslade. The Greenslades were prominent business and civic leaders, and board member's of the city's First National Bank, a present day thriving bank. The Bellevue Greenslades were not only banking entrepreneurs, but also military leaders, such as Admiral John W. Greenslade, who held various crucial WW II appointments, including Commandant of the Navy's Twelfth Naval District.
Our Inn features five bedrooms in four suites, and an extended-stay executive apartment, all appointed with genuine period antiques, hand woven oriental carpets, Victorian era and other fine furniture and each with a private bath.
Your host has traveled across the country and internationally for nearly thirty years amassing a wonderful array of antiques for you to enjoy
Tour the Inn
Additionally, our Inn provides several public areas. The Victorian Tudor Inn, while quite beautiful, is not a museum, and your host wants you to take pleasure in its offerings and functionally use and appreciate what it has to offer. Antique china, fine silver and sterling, and beautiful glass is used through out the day by our guests.
The Victorian Tudor Inn has two living rooms for guests to use. Both have impressive working fireplaces and contain significant antiques and oriental carpets. One is more formal with a large Empire sofa and a smaller Victorian love seat along with several unique sitting chairs. Wonderful vintage paintings grace the walls. The second living room is has majestic wood paneling going up the walls as well as wood beams in the ceiling. The antique Irish side board is full of English china and pottery from the 1800's. The couch is a wonderfully designed and comfortable present day U.S. made couch.
Our dining room is impressive. It contains wonderful built-in cabinets, a magnificent and large window seat and an amazing crystal chandelier. Also gracing this room is a civil war era marble top and intricately carved side board along with a Victorian marble top breakfast serving table, a vintage handmade dining table and chairs, and a mahogany Butler's table. This room also contains a portion of the owner's collection of antique glass and porcelain. One will also be struck by the paintings done on the ceiling of flowers and cherubs. Our guest will enjoy this room as they have their morning breakfast.
