A lovely 19th C home that was on the Underground Railroad and has a very interesting collection of Civil War memorabilia. We were here just one night and didn't have time to take advantage of the lovely grounds and pool but the clean, comfortable and attractive room was a delight. And the breakfast was very good. The owner was full of Civil War stories and gave us a preview of the architecture at Oberlin College We drove into town for dinner (a five minute drive), ate a nice dinner at the Middle Eastern restaurant and did a tour around the campus.
Perfect place to stay when visiting our son at Oberlin . Lovely hosts . Home decorated with civil war memorabilia. Owner is very knowledgeable on topic and is happy to share many interesting stories . Lovely breakfast . Very comfortable bed. We stayed in Lincoln room.
Quite possibly the loveliest and most enjoyable stay we've ever had on the road. The house is historic and its story as a stop on the Underground Railroad is brought to life through great visual and actual storytelling that is compelling to say the least. Joe and Susan are gracious, kind, fun and funny. The heart they have for the incredible Americans who found their way to freedom with the help of the good people of Oberlin all those years ago is the stuff of legend. You'll laugh a lot; feel completely at home and come away changed somehow by what you've experienced in this unique and remarkable B&B.
This was an extremely interesting place to visit. The rooms and beds were extremely comfortable. Susan and Joe were wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were exceptional. Susan payed close attention to our dietary needs and everything was delicious. Joe was a wealth of knowledge about Oberlin and the house history. We would definitely come back again in a different season and hope for better weather so we could enjoy the pool and gardens more.
What an interesting step back in history. This home is filled with Civil War history, with themed rooms that are lovely and comfortable. Both wonderful hosts, Susan is a wonderful baker and chef, and great communicator. Bob is a wonderful history teacher and story teller. The home is filled with books and rooms for reading and recreational activities. There is an asian spa room, a rec room with exercise equipment, a game table, a swimming pool, pond, and a lovely breakfast/dining room. The rooms are well equipped with drinks and glassware, and a plethora of amenities.
We spent three nights in the very spacious suite while we visited Oberlin College. Everything was splendid: very convenient to the college campus, quiet suite with plenty of room to spread out, every room is filled with historical artifacts and Joe is an incredible resource for all things history as well as recommendations to fully enjoy the surrounding area. The delicious and plentiful breakfasts set us up for a day of exploring--we skipped lunch each day. This was a delightful and unique experience. Thank you, Joe and Sue!
Location of B&B is convenient to where family lives in the area. Made for a home away from home. Nice setting. Lots of history. Friendly owners are knowledgeable and excellent cooks. Would love to come back when it is warmer out to use the beautiful pool. Tastefully decorated.
The hosts were so accomodating and the house was full of history. We also greatly enjoed the newer hot tub that was not filled with chlorine snd non drying. The spa experience is a must, too. Oberlin is a delightful town and so was meal at restaurant 1833. Looking forward to returning.
This place is so comforting and cozy. I couldn't have thought of a better place to spend new year's. The breakfasts were delicious and varied. Joe is great at telling tales. All the bases are covered here. Near a big city - YES!, In a cute town - YES! Kind and thoughtful innkeepers - YES! If you only stay at one B & B make it this one!
truth be told BBs are much nicer and more personal than hotel/motels especially during the covid period .so I was already looking forwqrd to this BB that had history tied to it @ civil war .what I was not expecting was the warmth and all the little added touches that made this BB a wonderful night away ..from the christmas tree in the room to the complimentary beverages also in the room a pool table and hot tub what a great way to relax and the breakfast wow from lit candles and a beautiful chandelier hanging over the table and a full size breakfast from fruit to entree and a history discussion of Oberlin and the civil war and I learn some new and interesting things all this at a very reasonable rate a definite two thumbs up for a great historical BB ran by two warm and caring people thank you will definitely be back and recommend this BB…
