A Note from
Sherry & Wesley
We purchased The John Allen House (formerly named Victoria’s B&B) in Feb 2020. Sherry first saw the house in late summer 2019; we were looking for a large, multi-generational family home. We were not looking for a historic home or a bed & breakfast specifically. But once you see this house, you never forget it. Every house thereafter wasn’t the same, so we had to stretch our plans to include running a B&B and to become the caretakers of this amazing piece of American history.
Wesley grew up in the Urbana area of Ohio and has lived in this region most of his adult life. He has been a college athlete & professor, a professional MMA fighter, a police officer and now the owner of a small trucking company. I’m from NW Indiana, but have lived in Ohio the past 20 years. I’ve been a business owner, a teacher, an IT project manager and now faculty at an on-line university. Together, Wesley and I have traveled extensively and we look forward to meeting our guests from all over the country (and world!).
To prepare for this adventure, we spent about six months exploring the Xenia and Miami Valley areas. We already love our neighbors and new friends – Xenia is such a friendly community with tons of stuff to do! We look forward to sharing our home and our new town with you!
