House & Grounds

Exterior 1

 

Situated on a picturesque 4-acre hilltop, Bodhi Tree Guesthouse offers a graceful fusion of contemporary and traditional farmhouse aesthetics. Traditional elements create a welcoming atmosphere while contemporary décor and furnishings provide modern convenience and stylistic interest. To put it another way, you’ll find no teddy bears, dollies or doilies gracing our rooms! We do, however, provide all the comforts of home — fresh linens, free access to Wi-Fi, and fresh coffee, tea, fruit, and healthful snacks to name a few. Guests are encouraged to explore the ample grounds, with its towering trees, landscaping, gardens and secluded resting spots.

Conscious Cuisine

Inspired by local restaurants such as The Village Bakery and Casa Nueva, we are committed to sustainable and conscious sourcing of ingredients. What food we don’t grow on the premises we source from area farms as much as possible. Breakfasts are simple, hearty, healthy and home-made.

Home is Where the Art Is

We integrate the work of local artists throughout the guesthouse, and in the common areas showcase the work of a specific artist in our rotating gallery. Currently we feature the work of Molly Schoenhoff.  Her new body of work, Meanderlines, is a collection of pieces crafted from handmade paper with machine stitching.  Each piece communicates the mystery and serenity of natural space.

Molly Schoenhoff is an artist with a background in graphic design, design history, and teaching. She considers art practice an opportunity to pay attention to life, and respond with intuition and intelligence. While her work is not defined by a particular medium or process, she is particularly interested in poetic language and material studies. Her long-standing practice of making paper from small plant fiber is informed by a reluctance to part with useable materials, an interest in the history of visible language and fascination with the flotsam and jetsam of everyday life. 

She holds a Bachelor from University of Cincinnati College of Design, and an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design. She was a faculty member at Arizona State University and University of Dayton, and has taught at Miami University, Rhode Island School of Design, and Ohio University. She resides in Athens with her family.
