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! Gale and her husband are wonderful hosts and the breakfast is always amazing.... More

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. Graciously Joe carried our bags upstairs and began telling us both about the rich history of the School House and the village of Zoar.... More

This is the second time staying at here and as I'm writing this in the Loft at the corner desk looking out into the snow I wish didn't have to leave- Joe and Gayle's Zoar School Inn Bed and Breakfast stay was relaxing, with the most comfortable, immaculately clean rooms and bedding, and delicious gourmet breakfast.

Cozy, clean, friendly. Some not the friendliest innkeepers you will ever meet. I forgot I was even on a business trip! They make you feel right at home. I was greeted with a slice of fresh baked apple pie and sugar cookies. It's not my grandma's house, but whenever I go over the river and through the woods to Zoar,OH... More

A perfect place for a quiet and enjoyable getaway. Even in cold and ugly January, Zoar School Inn B&B is warm and welcoming, and always very clean and comfortable. The B&B is stylish in keeping with historic Zoar, yet beautifully incorporates modern amenities and luxuries. Breakfasts are a great treat; this is our second visit. We will return again as... More
