About Dave and Pamela Waleri

Pam and Dave Waleri have been owners of 30 plus restaurants, 2 hotels, and a 10 bedroom Inn on Catawba Island on Lake Erie. The Inn on Smith's Hill is their retirement home (although they live in a 37' motor home 26 weeks each year). The hospitality business has been in their blood for over 40 years and the Inn on Smith's Hill is a reflection of the many years of serving the traveling public. Dave spent 9 months restoring the 13 room Victorian farmhouse to it's present glory and Pam's has decorated and furnished it as it might have presented a 100 years ago.

Dave and Pamela Waleri purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Dave and Pamela Waleri chose Ohio

The Waleri's had been looking for a small cottage property to use as a home base for their motor home travels when Pam suggested that another bed and breakfast would be a fun retirement. Within a day, Dave was online searching all over the country looking for a cottage suitable for a small B & B. Instead of a small cottage, he found a 13 room, 7 bedroom farmhouse in disrepair only a few miles from where both were born. The home needed the couples time and resources (that is money). It took 9 months to complete the full remodeling and redecorating. The Inn opened in August of 2015 exceeding the Waleri's initial expectations ( and budget).They are anxious to share their Inn and home with you, their guests .

What makes this farmhouse unique

Ideal for overnight stays and whole house rentals . An perfect getaway from the hustle of everyday life, it is situated on 2 rolling acres in the Village of Lexington, Ohio. There is a front porch swing overlooking the entire lot and an expansive rear deck for kicking back and having a beer or wine and a BBQ. A fire pit away from the house provides for an evening gathering placeto watch the stars and for all to enjoy hot dogs and smores.

The inn was my grandfather's home.

  • 5 of 5

This former Smith family home has changed hands 7/8 times. The Inn owners have done a wonderful job of keeping it true to its original self. It truly is a historical experience and well worth a visit. It is very heart warming to have my grandfather honored in this way.

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a family gathering over a weekend in July and the house and accommodations we very good. Kitchen appliances and cookware were nicely arranged and available for our use. The deck at the back of the house filled our needs nicely for the group of 9 adults. Nearby state parks are a nice feature as well. We are looking for another opportunity to take advantage of this rental.

Wonderful !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our race team stayed at The Inn during a race weekend at Mid Ohio. The house was the perfect spot. Nice and quiet, perfectly clean, with breakfasts that the team is still raving about. There were extra special, thoughtful, little things done for our guys that were above and beyond expected. You will love staying here.

Very quaint and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We came and stayed with my race team and found the home very pleasant. It is remarkably clean and well stocked for everything you need and he owners are far from jaded as VRBO owners. It is obvious they take pride in their home and really enjoy having guests. It really felt like staying at an old friend's house only without having to ask for permission for anything and having someone happy to clean up behind you!

Next trip to Mid-O we will definitely stay again.
