We have been staying at The Blackfork Inn for many, many years, now--as best we can recall, at least about 16 or so--and can't imagine visiting anywhere remotely in that area of Ohio without making an effort to stay there!
Sue Gorisek, the Innkeeper, is the most gracious, thoughtful and generous of hosts, not to mention kind, warm, friendly and giving of her time and attention in the midst of managing a very busy venue of guests . She is most accommodating as to arrival, departure, breakfast times and any other scheduling needs for her guests. The rooms (all with in-suite baths) are extremely clean and fresh, and are just irresistable. (Here we would like to put in a special word for Sandy, who helps Sue too.) The breasfast fare is always super-fresh, locally-produced, inventive, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. We are each day ever torn between adventuring out into the Mohican and Amish countries in the area, and just staying in to rest, read the good books all about, enjoy the sunny, welcoming ambiance and abounding comforts afforded.
In short, needless to say, we always and ever just hate to leave, and cannot wait to return!! We cannot compliment recommend The Blackfork Inn highly enough! You will be SO glad you did! --Pleasant Ridge, Michigan
