I stayed here while my son, a senior looking at Oberlin, stayed on campus. The Inn is a few blocks south of the campus. It is just what a B & B should be: a lovely home with spacious front porch, sitting room and large formal dining room on the first floor; guest rooms on the second floor. I stayed in the front room, which is large enough for a double bed, single bed, small attractive couch, and writing table. The furnishings are tasteful and functional, and the walls are painted a lovely peach color. The bathroom's toilet/sink area is small, but not tiny, and the shower is large and has a beautiful curved tile wall. The toilet and pedestal sink are art-deco style - very attractive.
Breakfast both days was great. Lots of tea, coffee, juice and fruit. Co-owner Ron served a terrific warm fruit cobbler one morning, and a tasty omelette the next.
Most enjoyable was how unbelievably quiet this inn is. I thought I was the only guest, until I went downstairs for breakfast and discovered that all the rooms were occupied. I will definitely stay here whenever I visit Oberlin.
