Where you’ll be

Yellow Springs, Ohio, United States

This is in the heart of downtown. You are steps from the bike path, multiple restaurants and coffee shops, a few blocks from Glen Helen, a short bike (or car) ride to Youngs, John Bryant State Park and Clifton Gorge. Yellow Springs is an eclectic community with unique shops, wonderful food and a love of art and nature. If you are visiting on a Saturday, step outside to the 'mini farmer's market' in our back parking lot or walk one block down to the larger farmer's market. Stroll around town, stop for a cup of coffee or just enjoy the beauty of being in a village where you can walk to just about anything. You don't need a car to reach us, just bike on into Y.S. for a get away!

I grew up in YS, across the street from the 1866 House. In fact, I played in the Vista as a child. I left Ohio for about 20 years and returned with my wonderful husband to raise our son in this amazing community. Mother, social worker, gardener, lover of books, baking and eating!
