LEBANON TO POLLOCK
EATING AND SLEEPING FROM LEBANON TO YELLOW SPRINGS
In Lebanon, the iconic Golden Lamb (27 S. Broadway, 513-932-5065) is a must for its historic guest rooms and large restaurant serving an excellent American menu. There is also The Queen Anne II Bed-and-Breakfast, offering hospitality in an 1885 house in a lovely residential district a short walk south of downtown (243 South Broadway, 513-932-3836), or The Hatfield Inn Bed-and-Breakfast with spacious rooms in a 19th century historic farmhouse near the city (2563 Hatfield Road, 513-932-3193).
In Waynesville, the Hammel House Inn (built in 1817 and 1822) replaced an even older tavern on the same site, and offers five overnight guestrooms and a restaurant open 7 days of the week (121 South Main Street, 513-897-2333).
Eclectic Yellow Springs offers several good eateries: The Winds Cafe is a casual fine dining restaurant with a seasonal menu and frequent special events (215 Xenia Avenue, 937-767-1144). Ye Olde Trail Tavern is nearby (228 Xenia Avenue, 937-767-7448), occupying the oldest building in Yellow Springs, a log cabin bakery opened by the Hafner family who came to America in 1832 (and to Yellow Springs in 1842) to manage one of the spas at Glen Helen.
Finally, the Clifton Mill Inn, in Clifton (75 Water Street, 937-767-5501) serves home-cooked pastries, breakfasts, and lunches, including that regional specialty of Indian origin, cornmeal mush.
