Simon Kenton Inn is comprised of three separate businesses under one company umbrella: the pub & restaurant open to the public, the lodging resort, and the special events venue. Though these entities each require unique consideration, they work in confluence to provide guests a full-service experience. There is no other privately-owned destination in the greater Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati market that is capable of hosting large events and providing lodging for 30+ guests. Approximately 25,000 guests visit the property each year. By the close of 2018, Simon Kenton Inn will have hosted over 65 large events for the year, far exceeding that of other banquet facilities in the area. Current 2019 bookings forecast next year to be even busier.

The current owner has worked tirelessly to create a full-service destination venue that has a reputation for outstanding service. The next owner will acquire a piece of history that is also a profitable turn-key business with years of reservations on the books, a knowledgeable and experienced staff, with space to expand the company according to their own desires.
