Wishing for a Quiet Getaway

The Wishmaker House is an upscale bed and breakfast with a full restaurant and an onsite winery in the heart of Bellville, OH. The Wishmaker House was originally built in 1890 and underwent extensive renovations in 2010. Don Van Meter and Jennifer McQuillan recently purchased the building to continue operating the eight-room bed and breakfast and restaurant.

Don and Jennifer formed Van Meter Investments, LLC and purchased the 10,466 square foot building in Richland County. First Knox National Bank, a division of Park National Bank, partnered with Ohio Statewide Development Corporation to provide the financing. Don and Jennifer plan to expand the offerings of the property by offering Saturday and Sunday Brunch and increasing wine production.
