This B&B is top rate. Gayle and Joe shared their lovely home with us and made us feel so at home. Zoar is a wonderful quaint historic town and the Harvest Fest offered history, antiques, and arts/crafts. Zoar School Inn was such a treat; attention to detail in every aspect from the terry robes to the scrumptious breakfasts...just can't beat... More

This was our second visit to Zoar Ohio and the Zoar Schoolhouse Inn. 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
