History of our unique inn
The romantic Timbrook Guesthouse began as the Old Jack Antrim Farmhouse, built in 1875. Jack Antrim lived here from 1921 to 1945, when he sold it to the Timmons family and the property became known as Timbrook. Jill and Peter Dole became the owners in 1988. After raising their children, they decided to convert part of their Ohio home to the guesthouse you see today.
