The Zoar School Inn made me so happy! I have always wanted to stay in Zoar and this was the absolute perfect place. Warm and welcoming are both the innkeepers and the old schoolhouse that has been updated to keep its charm and history while providing all of the modern amenities. Antiques and crafts, many local, are throughout but not...

Gayle and Joe were warm and welcoming from the beginning, and were helpful with what to see and where to eat in the area. The inn is immaculate, charming, and full of history. They also provided a dvd talking about the history of Zoar itself, which was helpful and made me even more interested in the area. The accomations were...

Want to go back to the Old Schoolhouse? Like maybe back to 1817? Don't worry, the "new schoolhouse" is still there too, but it was built in 1868. The Old Zoar School is no an Inn. It is run by Gayle and Joe, and their side kick the 15 and 1/2 year old pooch- Teddy. The town is laid out...

It started with a simple, personalized greeting on the chalk board in the back screened in veranda. The school house is amazing and well preserved, yet a warm cozy atmosphere gave us the feeling of belonging. The history of the area was well represented through out the inn as well as attention to tasteful decor throughout. Our room was absolutely...

I stayed at the Zoar School Inn B&B over a long weekend in September 2015. I can not say enough wonderful things about the bed and breakfast, the owners, and the community of Zoar. Owners, Gayle and Joe were welcoming, knowledgeable about the surrounding area and an absolute delight to be around. I stayed in Jason's Quarters and it was...

Lovely accomodations. Very clean, interesting decor, breakfast was fabulous, hosts very gracious and friendly. We were on a bike trip and they offered to house our bikes in their garage. Gayle recommended nearby Canal Tavern Restaurant for dinner and specific table. Just great service. Bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the jacuzzi tub too.

This B&B is in the very quaint town of Zoar. It was like walking back in time. We had opportunity to explore some of the historical buildings in town, some which had volunteer guides to share information and stories. Very interesting. The Ohio-Erie Towpath trail was within walking/riding distance. The purpose of our trip was to cycle the trail to...

A very neat and well organized historic inn managed by a very gracious couple who made our over-night stay a memorable occasion. Gayle is a great cook and served a wonderful breakfast. The evening was spent reminiscing on the screened-in back porch.

Where to start? Wow, Gayle and Joe knocked it out of the park. First of all, the B&B is in a historical district, and staying there you feel like you are living history.
