“Much Needed Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

This was our first trip to a bed and breakfast and boy does Ira set the standards high for any other B&B I may ever stay at. From the first moment we walked through the door we were consumed in the peaceful environment that is Pinnacle View. From the 4 star breakfasts, outstanding evening desserts, clean,cozy rooms and the outstanding views; we could not have found someplace better than Pinnacle View to enjoy our two days in Berea. Since we had never been to Berea Ira was wonderful in pointing us in the right direction when we wanted to eat or visit some of the local potters, his hospitality is next to none. It was a much needed getaway and we could not have asked for anything else other than just a few more days of sitting on the front porch taking in the beauty that surrounded us. We definitely will be back to stay again!

On a return trip from Tennessee to Michigan, I spent one night at this airy, light-filled, spacious B&B. It is a delight, from the responsible approach to green building to the heavenly beds. The views are long and peaceful, the host, Ira, is welcoming and engaging, and the food is outstanding. There is ample space to relax both inside and out. Gardens, nearby woods, and bird feeders add to the ambiance. I was more than pleased, and I look forward to sharing this treasure with my husband on our next trip south.

After making a 10+ hour drive north, we needed a place to relax and experience on our way home. We found The Pinnacle View Inn and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are pristine and had everything you could wish for. Ira (the owner) was the best host we've ever had. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He asks what your interests are and always had good recommendations. He also goes out of his way to ensure that you have the perfect breakfast. I loved the tour of the house. It was great to see how well he planned the house to limit the energy consumption.
Bottom Line: We would definitely recommend this place.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Ira's well planned beautiful home. It is nestled in a quiet pastoral setting far away from the bustle of town but close enough to drop in to see all the culture that Berea has to offer. We enjoyed the birdwatching especially the hummingbirds and woodpeckers from both the front porch, back deck, as well as the second story balcony.
We never sleep as well when we're traveling but we felt like we were home dropping off to sleep on the tempurpedic mattress.We've never been given the choice of what we'd like to eat at another B&B but Ira really wants you to have exactly what you like. We talked the night before about some choices and specialties and choose over two mornings a very light omelet with fresh herbs, blueberry lemon pancakes and strawberry cream cheese stuffed french toast. All freshly made with as much local produce and bakery as possible. Gina and Ira in the kitchen will please you every time.
We especially appreciated Ira's dedication to eco-friendly living and building practices and products. We looked forward to returning to the Inn after our family gatherings because it felt so comfortable and welcoming. We look forward to a return visit with family and we will certainly stay at The Pinnacle Inn again and again. Michele

Last weekend (April 14th) my family and I rented all the rooms and had an event in which we celebrated my Mom's life after she passed in January. We couldn't have been more pleased and satisfied with everything...from the beauty and elegance of the rooms to the amazingly accommodating innkeeper, Ira. We expected it was going to be a lovely place but the experience there was what was such a surprise. From the moment you walk through the front door you feel a peace and elegance and love that welcomes and embraces. Ira is your usher into the tranquillity and you immediately understand that he will take care of you and your needs behind the scenes like you've never experienced before.Our first morning, Ira was decked out in a chef's hat to serve us freshly cut fruit and eggs benedict.
For our event, my family and I relaxed, knowing he was taking care of the food and other details to make sure it went without a hitch.....which it did. We had a memorable event! Thank you Ira!

Room Tip: Any room you choose will be perfect.

Our first Bed and Breakfast experience turned out to be better than we ever imagined. Time seemed to slow down just for us. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for to escape every day life. We greatly enjoyed visiting with Ira. He was a very gracious and intelligent host full of interesting history of the area. And Gina prepared quite possibly the best omelet ever and keeps everything in tip top shape!!! The view from the front porch is breathtaking. We spent hours sitting there listening to the quietness. We stayed in the Moore Suite. It was large, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was fantastic featuring a large open shower and a beautiful two person soaking tub!! We can not wait to go back!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Moore Suite. It left nothing to be desired!!!

I have stayed at several bed and breakfast inns. Pinnacle View Inn is top of the line in hospitality, cleanliness, setting, comfort, food. We stayed in the Belle Suite...the bed was so comfortable, room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful....delicious food and plenty of it. Thank you Ira and Gina for everything...we will be coming to see you again. Bev - March 2012

Room Tip: We were able to take a peek at the other rooms. They all look very comfortable and I would be happy...
