Oberlin is a very small town with few overnight options. We were pleased with the Ivy Tree for its convenient location just off campus (we were visiting the college) and comfortable beds. It was unusually cold during our visit so the two heaters in our bedroom were very welcome; however, the connected bathroom was quite cold. An additional heater would... More

We just spent the weekend at the Ivy Tree while visiting Oberlin College. Everything was great. Rose was wonderful. She cooked both days and breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend if you are staying in Oberlin.

We stayed here for a night and were so happy their beds were so comfortable. They have a room with one queen and one twin, which was perfect for three people. Breakfast was so wonderful--their dining room is so cute! We had fresh cut fruit (kiwi, pear, and two others I forgot about) and homemade quiche with a mushroom &... More

The location was very convenient; you can walk to Oberlin, which does not have a lot of hotel options. We found the room to be very hot, however, and had no way to adjust it -- the heat is from a central radiator and its controls are elsewhere in the house. The breakfast was just so-so and appeared to be... More

Difficult to accurately respond, since this was for a stay 1 & 1/2 years ago? Sorry, does not sound like a typical day here? During the past year and half we have hosted hundreds of guests. Thank you! More

The Ivy Tree is a treasure. Beautiful home, stunning garden and lovely rooms.....the hosts, Ron and Steve, are gracious, helpful and kind. Two of my children graduated from Oberlin, so I've had the good fortune to stay at the Ivy Tree many times. Had a few minor crisis there, too, with details of junior/senior recitals, etc, and Ron and Steve... More

It's no mystery why The Ivy Tree has so many happy visitors who return again and again. We stayed there starting with our son's "college tour" in 2009, and have returned each August while delivering him back to school. We look forward to the warm welcome, cosy, clean, comfortable room, lovely gardens, perfect location, and congenial conversation with other guests,... More

When seeking advertised accommodations offered to the public by a registered business, I expect one of two answers: "sorry, we are fully booked with confirmed reservations", or "yes, we have availability for those dates". Called 9/8/13 to inquire about availability for commencement week-end in 2017. When told that rooms for commencement week-end are held in reserve for past guests, I... More

Ron K, Owner at Ivy Tree Inn and Garden, responded to this review

A recent guest told us about this review, which we were unaware of. Sadly, we have to respond. The past 22 years our approach to reservations for graduation weekend has been: To offer the rooms to guests who have stayed with us many times over the course of 4 years. Basically, it's a loyalty program, common in the hospitality industry.... More

We visited in June for several days and we really couldn't have found a nicer spot to stay. The Ivy Tree is a beautiful period home full of character. Ron and Steve get the balance just right - leaving guests to enjoy their home whilst providing not only a good home-made breakfast and excellent coffee but also tons of useful... More

Spent a comfortable week at the Ivy Tree. I was quite happy with the Magnolia Room, almost like a separate little apartment in the back of the house. The owners are welcoming and hospitable, and not at all intrusive. Ron's recommendations for restaurants in town (and in Cleveland) were spot on, and Steve's landscaping of the front and back yards... More

Lovely property within walking distance of campus & downtown. Off street parking area is provided. The room was a good size but the amount of furniture made us feel a bit cramped but the bathroom was spacious. The breakfast was good as was the morning coffee served with it.
