A very neat and well organized historic inn managed by a very gracious couple who made our over-night stay a memorable occasion. Gayle is a great cook and served a wonderful breakfast. The evening was spent reminiscing on the screened-in back porch.

Where to start? Wow, Gayle and Joe knocked it out of the park. First of all, the B&B is in a historical district, and staying there you feel like you are living history. All our breakfasts were organic and healthy, and very generous. Anytime we asked for anything, Gayle and Joe immediately helped us. The room was very big and... More

This B&B set a new bar for any B&B's in my future. The room was very large with a comfy four-poster bed. Attached bath had a jacuzzi tub. Our hosts, Gayle and Joe, were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were absolutely out of this world! Fresh fruits incorporated into dishes such as creme brûlée French brioche bread. Plus we had... More

My one night at the Zoar School B&B was so cozy- sitting on the screened in back porch savoring the night air, enjoying tasty cookies before bed, a wonderful night sleep... Gayle and Joe were very welcoming and served us a delicious breakfast outside.

First Gayle and Joe seem to be natural B&B host's, two of the best B&B owners we have ever run into. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, and where very helpful in making suggestions on things to do and see in the area while we where there. The Inn was a 9.5 on a scale... More

We have been to many B&B's so we have a lot to compare this to. This is by far one of the best experiences we have ever had. Gayle and Joe were the perfect hosts. They were extremely gracious, warm and full of good information. We stayed 2 nights so were lucky enough to enjoy 2 of their AMAZING breakfasts.... More

Both me and my husband have been juggling busy work schedules for the past several months. So for our wedding anniversary we wanted to get out and away from it all which was just what Gayle and Joe managed to do for us. Even though all of our plans were made at the last minute Gayle made an incredible effort... More

This was truly a lovely weekend spent in a beautiful old restored home. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking to Gayle and Joe, our gracious hosts. Our gourmet breakfast was a special treat, made with love and care by Gayle. We could not have been more pleased than to celebrate our 45th anniversary in Zoar.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Zoar School Inn over the Valentine's Day weekend and we loved it! This was our 2nd time staying in the Leah's suite and just like last year, everything was awesome, including the fireplace and hot tub, we love it!

This was our first time staying at a B & B but won’t be our last. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay which started with Gayle greeting us at the door and instantly making us feel welcome.
