“Another trip to Zoar's B&Bs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Having spent time in three other area B&B's, we can attest to the sheer excellence of the Zoar School Inn. This is by far the BEST offered by this quaint village. Joe and Gayle are amazing hosts, willing to share not only their entire home with you, but also the fascinating story of their personal journey that, thankfully, brought them to Zoar. We hope they never leave and never stop doing what they do! The accommodations at the Inn are incredible, the food is delectable, and the welcome mat just keeps unrolling throughout your visit! We will be back, and encourage others to book a night's stay at Zoar School.

The rooms are all beautiful in comfort & decor. True to the history of the building, yet modern with the additions of ceiling fans, A/C, and whirlpool tubs and showers. Gayle's breakfasts are awesome, and she delivers her guests the very best that anyone can imagine. Oh yes, I am the licensed massage therapist for the guests of this B & B upon request. You are promised that your visit will be the very best you could ever ask for.

My husband and I spent a night in this B&B during our visit to historic Zoar Village. One night was not enough; we wish we had spent more time here. Gayle and Joe anticipated every need and attended to every detail to make our stay comfortable. They gave us lots of ideas on places to see in the village and suggestions for where to go for dinner. The B&B was formerly a school house in Zoar village and has been beautifully renovated. Our room (Tessa's Room) was very comfortable. The in-room refrigerator was supplied with water and soft drinks and the most delicious cupcakes. Breakfast was outstanding, with accommodation made for my husband's dietary needs. Because the weather was good, we were able to eat breakfast on their screened porch, with beautiful views of the wonderfully landscaped back yard. I do believe that this B&B was the best we have ever stayed in!

What would I say is the best thing about this B & B? Is it the wonderful location, the amazing building, the delicious food, or spending time with Joe & Gayle? The answer is all of the above. No detail was overlooked, from writing the names of guests on a blackboard so you can say hello, to folding the toilet paper and sealing it with a little heart sticker, this place is first class! Our hosts traveled to many B&B's taking note of what they liked and didn't like in anticipation of opening and it shows. Chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes magically appeared wrapped in red plastic and tied with ribbon. Even our bed was turned down! Their historic home was spotless and beautifully decorated with appropriate furnishings. I spent time reading and on line in their screened back porch overlooking a beautifully landscaped yard. I can't think of one bad thing to say about the Zoar School House. Keep up the good work Joe & Gayle you're doing it right!

My wife and I just returned from a stay at the Zoar School Inn B&B. The Inn Keepers, Gail and Joe were extremely hospitable, the home was immaculately cared for and clean, but best of all was the food served up for breakfast. We have stayed in literally hundreds of B&B's across the country but this was the best breakfast we have ever had, bar none. Unbelievably delicious. We are going to make a trip to the Zoar School Inn B&B an annual event in the years to come and the food itself is reason enough to return.

My husband and I had a very nice getaway to Zoar and were so lucky to have found the Zoar School Inn to spend a relaxing weekend. Gayle and Joe are so personable and really took the time to make our stay special. Many thanks to them for opening their beautiful home to us, making incredible breakfasts and taking the time to get to know the two of us. I absolutely recommend this inn to anyone visiting the Zoar area.

What a joy to have a business that we can meet such wonderful people. You and Dave are welcome back "any time". Thank you for your generous comments.

Our goal is for our guests to enjoy their time with us the way they choose from "alone" time to interacting with us and other guests. We have tables for 4 and 2. Turn down at night? It's up to our guests. Ideas/comments? We want to hear them.

Is this place the right B&B in Zoar? Trust me when I say that it is.
Zoar is such a treat. It's a beautifully tucked away historic village. The kind we once read about in novels. It offers the peace and tranquility our modern lives so often deprive us of.
Gayle and her husband are icing on the cake of this picturesque B&B.
The food was only bested by the innkeepers themselves.
The room was delightful down to the nuanced details.
Your search ends here for a romantic getaway.
