Welcome to Bancroft Cottage, a charming oasis in the heart of town. Stay in one of the village's original homes, built in 1824 and lovingly restored with modern amenities. From the fully furnished interior to the beautifully landscaped yard and patio, you'll find a relaxing space located within steps of shops, restaurants, the Farmers Market, the TJ Evans Bike trail, and Denison University. Truly the best location in the village!

The space
We offer a unique setting for guests visiting Granville and its surroundings. You can expect a quiet residential neighborhood of historic homes, steps from dining and retail experiences as well as Denison University. The house has 3 upstairs bedrooms as well as a queen sized pull out sofa bed downstairs. 2 of the bedrooms have queen sized beds. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds. Full bathroom is downstairs with a 1/2 bath upstairs. Snuggle up by the fire inside the cottage during colder months, or relax on the patio surrounded by greenery when it's warm. No matter the season or reason, there's something to discover here.

A note about our cleaning protocol:
We employ professional cleaners to ensure a sparkling home for each new booking. We follow Airbnb's professional guidelines, including the following:
1. High-touch surfaces like doorknobs, remotes and light switches are sanitized between bookings.
2. We use cleaners and disinfectants that are approved by global health agencies.
3. Each room is cleaned extensively.
4. Extra cleaning supplies are provided for you, so you can clean as you stay.
5. Protective equipment is worn during cleaning.

*Beginning in June 2021, the courtyard and barn will be in use as part of a craft cidery. It will be a quiet tasting room/ winery concept. The cottage has its own private space, but the cidery courtyard can be accessed through the back gate if desired. We hope that our guests stop over to say 'hi' and enjoy a cider in the barn or the courtyard. Let us know you’re a guest at the cottage for a free cider tasting flight!

*Chiminea is provided on the back patio. Please bring your own firewood/starters if you'd like to utilize. Thank you!

Where you’ll be

Granville, Ohio, United States

Granville is a quaint New England-inspired village on a pedestrian-friendly grid, home to restaurants, shops, galleries and Denison University. Walk to everything from Bancroft Cottage, located one block from the heart of town. Cyclists and runners may enjoy the nearby TJ Evans Trail (two blocks from Bancroft Cottage), which travels east to Newark and northwest to Alexandria and Johnstown. The city of Columbus, Ohio's state capitol, is an easy 35 minutes away by car, and the suburbs of New Albany, Westerville and Gahanna are even closer, each home to dining, shopping and other attractions. Easton Town Center, 24 miles west of Granville off SR 161, features nearly 300 retailers plus restaurants and entertainment.
