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.  


Southern Ohio in autumn is a special time of year. The rolling hills and hardwood, deciduous forests erupt with a dazzling kaleidoscope display that is a must see. After filling your belly with a scrumptious breakfast, guests at The Willis-James will find themselves a short drive away from a number of state parks such as Great Seal, Tar Hollow, Scioto Trails, and Hocking Hills. Each of these easily accessible parks provides their own special experience and hiking terrain, but one thing they all have in common is unparalleled beauty! Make your reservation at The Willis-James today for your multi-day autumn adventure!
