  • Introduction

    Plâs Cadnant Bed & Breakfast front

    Welcome to Plâs Cadnant Bed & Breakfast in Shandon, Ohio! Enjoy a retreat to a historic home in a country setting. Wake up to the smell of freshly made Welsh cakes on the griddle. Go to sleep in a room filled with turn-of-the-century antiques.

    Spend an evening with the innkeepers, conversing in English, or Welsh if you wish. Choose a book from the library and spend a few hours on the 50' porch with a view of nothing but green. Catch a few zzzz's on one of two hammocks stretched between hundred year old trees.

    Located in historic Shandon, Ohio-settled over 200 years ago in the lush Miami River Valley. Plâs Cadnant was originally built by Welsh immigrants in 1832 as a general store. A residence was added in 1848 and the home has since been used as a post office, school house, dry goods store, supper club, ice cream parlor, and antique shop. Remodeled recently into a quaint country Bed & Breakfast, specializing in the rich Welsh heritage of Shandon.

    You will be greeted by a Corgi named Megan who greets guests enthusiastically. There are also cats on the premises so let us know about allergies so we can quarantine them to a different part of the house if required. They are never allowed in the bedroom areas of the Bed and Breakfast.
