Ohio One Day Trips

My Ohio Road Trip #56

“Oh, those Lemon Muffins!”

Just one of the reasons to make sure you head to Pine Tree Barn.

Located just a few minutes out of Downtown Wooster is a 25,000 square foot restored 1868 bank barn filled with home furnishings, a gift shop, year ’round holiday decorations, and a charming restaurant that offers views of the Kilbuck Valley.

This 3rd generation family run business also sells Christmas trees from the farm during the Christmas season.  Making it a perfect destination during the holidays.


A visit would not be complete without enjoying lunch at the Granary Restaurant.  The menu includes a nice selection of fresh salads, sandwiches, crepes, pasta, their famous French Onion soup and a dessert menu that includes pies, a brownie praline pecan sundae, cheesecake and those wonderful Lemon Muffins. When visiting I always get the quiche of the day with a spinach salad topped with a warm bacon dressing. So good!

If you don’t have enough room in your stomach to enjoy a Lemon muffin with your lunch, I do suggest you grab a 4-pack for home. Or you can try making them yourself.  Pine Tree Barn has so graciously posted the recipe on their website.
