The Inn at Honey Run

The Inn at Honey Run is located near the edge of Millersburg, Ohio, and is found adjacent to the creek known as Honey Run. There are a total of 39 guest rooms that visitors can reserve, which are available year-round. The business offers standard rooms as well as suites that contain additional amenities and more space. Twelve rooms are found in the Club-Level building, which was built underground. One can also find a restaurant called Tarragon where guests are given several options for brunch and dinner meals. The establishment does not allow pets to stay at the property. Furthermore, the Inn at Honey Run can host corporate retreats, anniversaries, and other events. Guests can purchase a package online to make their stay more unique, which entails a platter of chocolates, a dozen roses, or an Amish buggy ride.


The Inn at Honey Run has 39 rooms that patrons can reserve. Each room falls into a specific category, ranging from standard rooms to a Club-Level Guest Cottage. One unique aspect of the property is that the Club-Level building, which has 12 rooms available for reservation, is located underground. The proprietor, Jason, describes the interior of their buildings as "soft, contemporary, and modern." All rooms have bathrobes, a bird feeder, Wi-Fi, a television, toiletries, a coffee maker with complimentary coffee, and a DVD player, among other amenities. The Club-Level units come with a few extra amenities, such as a gas or wood-burning fireplace, an outdoor patio or deck, a mini-fridge, and access to the Club-Level Lounge, which offers wine and hors d'oeuvres every day from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Patrons can find a few common areas around the establishment’s fifty-six (56) acres of land. Visitors often lounge in the inn’s hearth room where a large fireplace, board games, and seating are provided. There is a covered deck just outside the hearth room with a glass roof, which Jason, the proprietor, mentions as one location guests can stand outside during the spring and summer to watch the rain. Notably, the business owns a restaurant called Tarragon that serves breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner. There is a sitting room inside the restaurant called The Juniper, with views of the surrounding forest. The inn additionally has a store that sells various items, including jewelry and memorabilia. Jason mentions that they try to sell things that are locally made and created in the United States.

The outside of the business is described by Jason as "very wooded." A two-acre garden grows fruits and vegetables, which are used to make meals at the restaurant. Another unique space on the grounds is a sheep barn where visitors can feed and interact with the Tunis sheep herd.

The Inn at Honey Run is found on the edge of the town, where there are many trees and fields. The proprietor mentions that there are a variety of museums, wineries, and cheese houses nearby. One draw to the area is that the establishment is found in what Jason calls "Ohio's Amish Country," which offers many different services and attractions. He mentions that there are not many restaurants in the vicinity, but one that he likes to recommend to his patrons is Rebecca's Bistro, located in Walnut Creek.


Jason, the proprietor, would like his guests to feel relaxed and peaceful, and he hopes to give people "a chance to reconnect." Additionally, he remarks, "The goal of the inn is to make it feel like a home." In an effort to help people feel relaxed, the staff tries to be attentive to what people need and answer questions if guests have any. The employees tend to interact with visitors frequently, and Jason mentions that they have many returning patrons.

There are several policies that the establishment has in place that they would like patrons to be aware of. The inn does not allow guests under the age of 21 to stay at the property. Moreover, visitors are not allowed to bring their pets, and smoking is prohibited inside any of the buildings. However, Jason mentions that smoking is permitted outside. He states, "We have ashtrays on every patio, so outside, we allow and welcome people who want to smoke."

Many patrons have stayed at the inn since it first opened. A few aspects of the business that are mentioned in guest reviews include the location, the art, and the amenities offered in the units. Someone who stayed at the establishment wrote, "The honeycomb rooms are private, quiet, and offer all the modern amenities. Waking up and having coffee on our private patio among birds and butterflies is the perfect way to start the morning. Don't miss the restaurant. We had planned on dinner one night in a neighboring town, but dinner was so good we had all our meals here." The business is open year-round, with its busiest season of operation most commonly occurring in the fall, specifically in September and October. The typical demographic of visitors tends to be couples.


The Inn at Honey Run has been in business since November 1982. There have been three proprietors in total, with the original proprietors of the establishment being Marge Stock and Margaret Schlichting, who operated it until 2001. In 2001, they sold it to the second owner who maintained the inn until 2009 and sold it to the current proprietor, Jason.

Jason was led into the industry because he wanted to enter the "next business venture." Before coming across The Inn at Honey Run, he mentions that he "had somewhat of a restaurant background, but [he] had never worked in the hotel industry." Jason explains that he researched and learned about the hotel industry and has enjoyed it since he started.

The business has been cited in several business magazines over the years. Jason mentions that when Marge, the original owner, constructed The Inn at Honey Run, "she was adamant about minimal disruption to the forest, so the construction workers cleared out just what they needed to, and built backward to preserve the natural surroundings."

Many updates have been made to the property since the current proprietors purchased the inn. Some upgrades include remodeling the rooms and adding the open-air art museum. In the future, Jason mentions that they would like to maintain the history of the land while trying to provide a relaxing stay for visitors.
