Every two years, the Zoar community has a garden festival and as both my wife and I are interested in gardens we thought it would be a good opportunity to visit the area again. Gayle and Joe couldn't be nicer hosts. A piece of Gayle's strawberry- rhubarb... More

If you are looking for an immaculate B&B with a top notch breakfast, stay here. My story is I am a recent Ohio transplant with somewhat of an addicting personality and had been listening to a podcast about the true crime story of Lizzie Borden. Since her old house is a bed and breakfast now, I was interested in doing... More

Spent a pleasant anr\d relaxing weekend in Zoar at the Old School Inn.

My fiancee and I took a day/night trip to Zoar from Cleveland because it sounded interesting due to our German ancestry. I chose Zoar School Inn over the others in town because I am a teacher. What an excellent choice! I cannot imagine the others are quite this good. This was our first B&B and we were both very impressed... More

Spent the weekend at the Schoolhouse Inn. It was our first Bed and Breakfast. We had a great time and breakfast may have been the best I have ever had! Gayle and Joe were great, thanks for a great night away. House had a ton of character with wood beams throughout the loft.
