Absolutely lovely historic inn right next to Brandywine falls in Cuyahoga National Park. Sheep grazing in backyard, steps to a waterfall, lights strung in the trees… it’s a fantasy land. The staff treat you like family. The garret room is listed separately on air bnb as Anna Hale’s garret & has more modern decor. Breakfasts were delicious & served promptly at 9 am. You can keep to yourself or mingle if you wish. We loved hiking in the area, biking on the nearby tow path trail & touring the Stan Hywet mansion nearby. We loved this special place & hope to return in all the seasons. Thank you, Katie, for sharing your lovely home. And to Maggie for all the attention to detail. We miss you already!

Centrally located in the heart of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, this small B&B has ability to transport one beyond time to great-great-grandparent's Ohio, with such things as fireplace in the bedroom and 19th - early 20th century furnishings and decorating style. Sheep safely graze here. A bonus is the small wicket gate under a small arbor which opens upon the hike/path trail to Brandywine falls, barely 150 yards away. The breakfast was simple, but adequate, and served on period china. My wife and I visited here on the occasion of a wedding anniversary and were not disappointed.

We were a family of four with two young kids and had a perfect weekend at the Inn. Kids under six aren’t allowed in the main house so we stayed in the Loft, which was a great room for our needs. Not the most childproofed as my toddler loved climbing the staircase but it was spacious and comfortable. There were grapes, apples, cookies and Buckeyes in the room when we checked in. The price was higher than I expected after taxes and fees but I think ultimately it was worth it. The National park is more developed than other parks — there are houses in the park so it feels more like a nice suburb or vacation town than a national park— so staying a chain hotel wouldn’t have given the same vibe. The room had a loft space with king sized bed, where was set up the pack n play. Downstairs there was a twin bed where my son slept and a full sized futon. The floor to ceiling windows were beautiful and let the light in, great ambiance for breakfast. Each morning two young ladies brought breakfast in picnic baskets and set it up all cute for us. The breakfast was oatmeal, yogurt parfaits, bread and muffins, and hard boiled eggs. I kind of wish they had something more substantial than carb heavy foods for the price but it wasn’t a bad breakfast. The innkeeper Maggie was very attentive and lovely. In the mornings, the kids would get up and want to see the sheep. She let them feed the sheep corn one afternoon, which they loved. They also sent us on our way with extra cookies, muffins, and Buckeyes when I asked — the kids ate all of it in the first half hour of the car ride home. Location is excellent, as we were able to just walk to the Brandywine Falls from the yard of the Inn. Such a great weekend, we’re so happy we were able to stay at the inn.

I usually stay at an airbnb or hotel, so I didn't know what to expect. Breakfast and coffee/tea are not available until 9am, so this is not a good choice for early risers who want to get out on the trails before it gets hot/crowded. I was told that if I wanted anything earlier, I should make the 20 minute roundtrip to Panera. I don't understand why the hostess couldn't have just left out a cup and a teabag near the microwave and told me to "knock yourself out",. When we did get our cold breakfast the next morning, the hard cooked egg my husband ordered was raw, so we knew to checkout early the next day and go get a hot breakfast. Also, we were told not to eat in our room, which I wasn't expecting. On the plus side, the location next to the falls is nice and the sheep are friendly.

Tricky review because the setting is beautiful and there are many nice touches to the historical inn. It is somewhat rustic but has a very comfortable bed & nice linens & the staff are very friendly. However, there is only one bottle of water in each room for 2 days. It would be helpful to add bottles of water for guests when there's no running water except the bathtub in each suite. A small coffee pot & tea bags in each room should be available especially when coffee is not available till 9:00 a.m. during breakfast. The breakfast has almost all carbs (but nicely done) but many of us are trying to eat more balanced. Our Whirlpool spit out many gross black specks when I tried to use it. For the money, the view & staff are lovely but it needs updating & we likely won't stay again.
