A mild winter creates a sense of urgency for spring to arrive. We crave the sunshine to beat down and brighten our mood. And when we get an intense cold snap post a pre-spring tease we’re instantly frustrated. A local getaway to the quaint Yellow Spring’s Arthur Morgan House, AMH, is the answer to brightening a mood. This tranquil escape to rest, relax, and recover is a short 25 minute drive from Downtown Dayton and well worth it.
Upon arrival you’ll be mesmerized with the historic home that was constructed in 1921. It’s charm can be found throughout the home in it’s attention to details. It’s furnished with a fresh clean modern look. And the beds are made with soft blankets and cotton linens. The bathrooms are full of organic amenities, fluffy towels and locally made soaps. Press a special button in the bathroom and you’ll be met with a bit of a red flare, a infrared heat lamp. This provides extra heat when it is needed rather than wasting it. Stepping out of the shower onto a cold floor is no longer an issue. Then climbing into bed there is nothing better than looking out the large original windows to see the bright moon glow as you lay to sleep. What’s even more extraordinary is that there are no televisions, radios, or in-room phones to distract you from the surrounding beauty. Fear not business travelers, there is free wireless high-speed internet on the occasion that you may need to connect.
In the morning after you’re well rested you stroll downstairs for an included cooked-to-order breakfast for two. Worry not, ingredients are sourced locally at the Yellow Springs Farmer’s Market. Fair trade and organic coffee and teas also awaits you. If you have any special dietary needs, your concerns are met without hesitation; gluten-free, lactose-free, and vegan breakfasts are always available upon requests. During breakfast you may have the wonderful opportunity to meet other B&B guests, who do not disappoint and are lively and up for conversation. Plus, food at the Arthur Morgan B&B is made with love, a perfect way to start your getaway day in Yellow Springs.
From there you’ll definitely want to check out local shops and go for a hike in John Bryan or Glenn Helen to continue on your relaxing getaway. The AMH is downtown Yellow Springs and just a short walk to: Little Art Theater, Chamber Music Yellow Springs concerts, the John Bryan Community Center, the Dharma Buddhist Center and the House of AUM yoga studio. Additionally AMH is a short drive to John Bryan State Park, Clifton Gorge and Young’s Jersey Dairy.
