Welcome to The Willis-James

Inspired by the former 19th century builders and owners of the home, great care was taken to restore the house and continue to tell their stories. The home is grounded in its federal/classical revival architecture, yet adorned with modern amenities. Our approach of "old meets new" provides a unique opportunity for the traveler who appreciates a boutique lodging experience in a historic community.  

Winter in wonderland

When the weather turns chilly, let the holiday charm of The Willis-James and Chillicothe warm your soul. The glowing lights of Yochtangee Park and the historic downtown are a beautiful sight to behold. Stroll the shops, enjoy a delightful meal at one of our quaint restaurants, and settle in one of our comforting rooms for a peaceful night's rest. You'll awaken to a fabulous and satisfying breakfast before the start of your day's adventure. Should the weather present snow, a stroll in the winter-splendor of Hocking Hills will top off your well-deserved break. Book your stay with us today!
