Wonderful visit to Zoar Ohio

4.0 on April 30, 2015

I am interested in history and historic places and I loved finding Zoar in my research a few months ago. It is a darling, beautiful, and historic site in eastern Ohio. My stay at the Cider Mill was flawless, a charming room, a comfy bed, and an adorable cat named Fuzzy. Top that with a breakfast by a trained chef and it really couldn't get much better. But it did - with a remarkable little historic town and enthusiastic and supportive citizens. I simply loved visiting and staying there and would recommend it to anyone like me who wants to go and learn new things about new places. You won't be disappointed.

Amazing Time...

The most Pleasent and romantic stay I ever had. The housekeepers were fantastic and soo sweet and nice. We stayed in the Cloe's room and it was outstanding, clean and so relaxing. The shower/Jacuzzi was amazing! I have informed all my friends and they already are making place with their spouses to take a visit. The people of Cider Mill are soo pleasant.. Great atmosphere! We will definitely stay again and again and again-Lydia Huba

My wife and I arrived on one of the snowiest days of the year and were greeted by Patrick and a clear driveway. He showed us around and explained everything about the house. Our room was very clean and quaint. We enjoyed the size of the room and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was top notch and the other couple that was there had very good things to say about their experience as well. Terrific place!

Cozy room, stellar breakfast

My wife and I came in late after our wedding. The room was very cozy with fresh-baked cookies waiting for us. Huge bathroom, incredibly comfortable bed. There was a helpful note to let us know when breakfast was, and we're so glad we didn't miss that. The breakfast was awesome. Incredible stuffed French toast and scrambled eggs, sausage for her, and we're still talking about it. The staff were friendly and the other guests were very nice to talk to. A great experience for a newly-married couple!

Highly recommend!

Beautiful B&B, great location, warm and friendly hosts. Excellent gourmet breakfast. There is a small shared refrigerator located in the hallway outside the guest rooms which wasn't really large enough for four sets of guests. The room we stayed in had plenty of space for it's own fridge, which would have been nice for a longer stay. Note that access to the bedroom floor is gained by use of a spiral staircase.

Wonderful Experience in Zoar

5 on November 04, 2014

I highly recommend staying at the Cider Mill. Patrick was extremely warm and welcoming; he made us feel right at home. I could not have asked for a more gracious host. He also makes a wonderful breakfast. The Mill is beautiful. As soon as you step in the front door you can feel the history and the love and care that went into making the Mill a home. We stayed in Elizabeth's Room (the patriotic room). It is very cute, comfortable, and cozy. The bed was soft. The bathroom was clean. The location is right in the heart of Zoar, a very picturesque town. It is walking distance to the Zoar General Store, where our Tour of Zoar began. And it is an extremely short drive to the Canal Tavern. (Great place for dinner) The other guests we shared breakfast with were absolutely lovely and perfect companions, making the delicious breakfast even more delightful . Overall We had a great experience and we would encourage you to make the Cider Mill your home away from home while in Zoar. Note: while it was not an issue for us, if you have problems with mobility the spiral staircase to get to Elizabeth's Room may pose a problem. However, I think there is a room on the ground floor. Also there is no cable tv in Elizabeth's Room (this was not an issue for us). However the Inn has an extensive dvd library should you need to watch tv.

"Zoar"ing above the rest!

Patrick was a VERY congenial and welcoming host. I can't think of a single negative experience related to our stay at The Cider Mill. If you are considering a stay anywhere remotely close to this property, you need to put this place at the top of the list. Zoar Village is a worthwhile stop on its own, and this place is literally part of the village. If visiting nearby Holmes County and Amish attractions, the Cider Mill is close enough to those places to make it a very viable option.

1st B&B experience was wonderful

5 on October 01, 2014

The inn, Elizabeth room, Innkeeper Patrick, food, and fellow guests: all were delightful. It was a weekend I had planned for my husband and I to celebrate our 29th anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!

Wonderful Setting

5 on September 30, 2014

Cider Mill B&B is located in historic Zoar and the setting is so lovely. We were served a gourmet breakfast, our room was very nice. We checked out the other rooms and would like to come back and splurge and stay in either Abigail or Chloe rooms. Patrick was wonderful and the b&b is decorated beautifully.
