It has been a few years (and several stays) since I last reviewed Bear Run Inn. While we normally stay in the Aspen Cabin, this time we decided to spend a few days in the bed & breakfast for a change of pace.
I'm so glad we did! The inn is tastefully decorated, and our room (the Victoriana Rose) was so lovely and romantic. There is a 4-poster queen bed, a chair, beautiful lighting, and a gorgeous wardrobe with full-size mirror. Though this room does not have a shower in-room, there is a huge garden tub, and bath robes are provided for after soaking.
Breakfast each morning was simply outstanding. Souffle, fruit cup, pastry, and hot tea or coffee with juice. There is no way you can walk away hungry from this meal. We were fortunate to be able to try freshly-made apple cider with breakfast one morning - it was delicious! We also enjoyed listening to Bud's stories. You can learn so much from and about someone if you are only willing to listen.
The Myers family encourages you to visit their farm while you're staying with them, and we like doing so very much. They have many barn cats, goats, and horses, and they were getting alpacas on the day we left. We took a buggy ride on our last stay in June, 2013 (yes, this was our second stay this year!), and this time we went on a hayride. It was so much fun, and we got lots of beautiful photos. There is also a pond and hiking trail on their many acres. The stargazing from their property is wonderful, and opportunities to see wildlife are abundant. The peace and quiet you will find here is incomparable - you'll find rest for body and spirit.
The Myers continue to provide warm hospitality and consistently clean amenities to such a high standard that I can't imagine us ever wanting to stay anywhere else in the Hocking Hills region. I truly believe once you stay here, you won't want to stay anywhere else, either.
