5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Time spent is Zoar is like stepping back in time and the hospitality at the Zoar bed and breakfast help complete the picture. Very comfortable, friendly, great food and in a wonderful place. The ghost tour was worth while, the local golf course was a challenge and this is an ideal location for cycling as well. Take time to enjoy the beautiful countryside... you won't be sorry you did!

This was our first time at the Zoar School Inn Bed and Breakfst. It exceeded all my expectations. The owners are sweethearts that do anything they can to make you more comfortable. There were snacks and beverages available 24/7. Gayle makes a dessert treat every night for her guests and they were delicious. The breakfast menu is like gourmet items. Gayle cooks like a classicaly trained chef. Everything we had was wonderful. The room had a gas fireplace and a jacuzzi bathtub. The inn is very clean and the decore reminds you of the era it was built in. Zoar Village has allot to offer like tours, events, and activities. There are buildings there that are maintained and open for tours with demonstrations of how they did things in the 1800s This will not be our last visit and we are looking forward to our next one. Thanks Gayle and Joe for your wonderful hospitality and making our stay so special

Room Tip: All of the rooms in this Inn are decorated differently and each one is beautiful

We really enjoyed our one-night stay here. It was very comfortable, the location is very convenient (right in the heart of historic Zoar), the hosts were gracious, and the breakfast was phenomenal! Yoghurt, granola, & berry parfait, homemade bread, and marscapone- filled French toast with real maple syrup served with artisanal pumpkin sausage.
We also went on the ghost tour and they were very helpful with making sure we got to the right place.
Highly recommended!
Only caveats: They do use scented candles, so if you are sensitive to that, be warned. Also, their pillows are a bit thick and stiff.

Thank you!
We hope to see you again one day.
We appreciate you input on the pillows. Joe and I have an extra pillow or two in all the rooms for just such a problem. Some soft and some are firm.
There are times when we've had people who are sensitive to certain aromas, candles and oils and we completely understand and will try to meet any guest requests.
When we do our guest intake we always ask if anyone has any allergies in the hopes of hearing our new friends needs.
The number one objective is our guests comfort and we are always happy to hear if there's an issue. When you're here or after. Though we prefer to take care of business during your stay so you'll be completely happy :)

What a wonderful little inn this is! Spotless accommodations, outstanding friendliness, and a breakfast that satisfies the soul, excellent cuisine and thought provoking conversation. Every detail is thoughtfully executed. The room I had, Cousin Jason's Quarters, was small, and quaint in some respects, but very comfortable for one person. The only addition I would like to see is a small table in the ante room for morning coffee. The "shoes off" policy makes for a very quiet inn without any clomping about on their beautiful floors. Gayle and Joe are "people persons" that rate high in my book.

Room Tip: On my next visit, which hopefully will be soon, the room on the north side, Lea's Suite, will be...

Thank you! We'll look for a small table to put in Jason's Quarters hallway as soon as possible. Good idea! We love input. We've added a shelve, hooks, stools and dvd's with guests comments. We're so sorry the alley was busy when you were here. It's usually very quiet but there was some activity on 2nd and 212 that caused some traffic to use the alley. We hope to see you again one day.

My husband & I really enjoy going to B&Bs to unwind and relax, but we are both pretty picky. I want a friendly, pretty place with good food & something close by to do. My husband wants a large , soaking (preferably a bubbler) tub, a very comfortable bed, and safe off street parking. The Zoar Inn School House B&B is perfect for us. It is beautifully decorated, cozy and spotless. Joe & Gayle have covered all our needs plus somethings we didn't know that would help us to relax. A little step stool helped me to reach the high bed, the great smelling candles were enjoyable while soaking in the bubbler tub, and then a yummy treat of cookies for that bedtime snack. Joe & Gayle are the perfect hosts with their warm friendliness and flexibility. The Zoar School House B&B is #1 with us. Can't wait for our next visit !

The stool comment was a tip off as to who you are! Since I'm in the same position as you I can fully understand the need for a "step up". You and Herman are both delightful. See you in a few months! Thank you for your comments Joe and I appreciate them very much.

What an awesome B&B! My husband and I have stayed at over 50 small Inn's and B&B's over the past 20 years.This was in our top 3 for over all experience. We were greeted by Gayle with a warm welcome. Jim showed us where the delicious treats were hidden and any kind of coffee/tea you can imagine. Since it was our 15 year anniversary they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine and warm cookies. The refridgerator in our room had pop and water. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was very spacious and cozy. The breakfast served was delicious and was plated beautifully. We loved talking with Gayle and Jim and would go back in a heartbeat, definitely worth the time and money!

We stayed in the Loft for our 15th anniversary and from the personalized welcome on the chalkboard to the bottle of local wine in the room, Gayle and Joe went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. The house is spotless and full of charm. We have stayed at about 50 B&Bs and Gayle's breakfast is in the top 3. From the locally made gourmet sausages to the fabulous croissants, each of the three courses of the breakfast was a meal in itself and a delight to be savored. Gayle and Joe do not cut any corners and you can expect a relaxing getaway filled with charm and attention to detail.
