One of the nicest, cleanest, most practical, prettiest B&B's

5 on September 03, 2014

One of the nicest, cleanest, most practical, prettiest B&Bs we've ever stayed at! The owner, Patrick, was a delight, and willing to provide anything we needed. Nice soft cookies waited in our room when we arrived. Then we walked over to the Firehouse Grill for a late dinner of burger and gyro with plenty of onion rings. We were there to bike the Ohio & Erie Canal Trail, and Patrick offered to come get us if we ever had any problem on the trail. Breakfast is at 9am - too late a start for us - so we skipped breakfast on day 1 in favor of protein bars. We drove about 1/2 mile to the Zoar Trail parking lot and rode our bikes as far as Canal Fulton (lunch at Three Sisters Century Restaurant) and back. The trail signage is better heading South than North! We returned to great hot showers and a cool air conditioned room (Abigail's Rm) on a hot end of summer day. Bags of chips were available in the hallway, perfect for trying to rehydrate! We had dinner reservations at the nearby Canal Tavern of Zoar (scallops, steak) which was packed on a Saturday night!. Day 2 was unfortunately pouring rain, but we joined another couple for a breakfast of delicious quiche, sausages and berries. Perfect. Zoar is a charming little town with an even better Inn at Cider Mill.

Put This on Your Bucket List . . . but make this your next junket . . .

Arriving just after official check-in time, we found our accommodations in the Elizabeth Room to be in a state of perfection . . . so warm and inviting, with a Kuerig coffee service table just around the corner and a mini fridge outside our room . . . Patrick was a very gracious innkeeper, 'though we felt more like house guests as we explored the common areas that were tastefully, but sparingly adorned with vintage and primitive Americana. Exposed brick walls, rough-hewn timbers and original wood flooring took us back in time. The reason for our stay was to visit the quaint Zoar Village and take in all that time would allow us. A walk to the Cannery enticed us to buy a number of jars of the goods produced on site ! And, although the Zoar Bakery doesn't actually make what's sold, a bakery nearby provides baked goods reminiscent of early times in Zoar. Our destination for dinner took us to the recommended Canal Tavern of Zoar, for which Patrick suggested he place a reservation on our behalf. Everything was superb - the cocktails, sausage sampler appetizer and entrees were superior ! The spaetzle was the best we've ever enjoyed ! We would have ordered desserts, but we were already stuffed to the gills ! The next morning we awoke, after a quiet and restful night's sleep, to a beautifully set dining room table and a carafe of freshly-brewed coffee, which was excellent ! Breakfast was something we'll never forget ! ! ! The Stuffed French Toast, Fluffy Eggs and Sausages were the stuff dreams are made of - Patrick is our newest hero ! In retrospect, after enjoying a one-night stay, we wish it would have been a two-night stay . . . maybe sometime this autumn . . . NOTE TO SELF : : : Must reserve the Elizabeth Room for two nights - CHECK Must eat at the Canal Tavern of Zoar both nights - CHECK

A great stay in Zoar

Stayed for two nights at this B&B in historic Zoar and loved it. My wife and I have stayed at a dozen B&Bs across the US and this is up there with the best. We stayed in Abigail's Room and it was perfect. Breakfast was good and so was the company.

A great stay at a great value!

A very quite and peasefull stay like stopping time and going back into the past.

Beautiful, Peaceful and Relaxing

When I booked Chloe's Room, I was looking for a quiet and relaxing place to unwind and the Cider Mill delivered just that--with such charm and beauty. We watched humming birds flying in the nearby trees while we sat on our private balcony and drank our morning coffee (fresh brewed from the Keurig in our room). Although our entire stay was very special, the stuffed blueberry french toast we had at breakfast was certainly one of the highlights! Our stay at the Cider Mill will be a treasured memory for a long time to come!!

This was our first experience staying in a bed and breakfast and it was absolutely wonderful. Every aspect more than met our expectations. I would recommend this place to everyone. Patrick, you are an exceptional host and awesome cook. I hope Cider Mill is still in business next year. We certainly want to return. Thank you for everything. Penny Reed and Collin Banks.

Both my husband and I loved the Cider Mill. It is smack in the middle of the Village of Zoar and just steeped with history. The rooms are wonderful, as is the whole place. Patricks breakfast was delicious each and every morning. Loved having the little gift shop downstairs to do some shopping without leaving the building!

Great bed and breakfast in a nice little town

Really enjoyed staying in the Chloe suite. It is spacious and cozy at the same time. Loved the bed and of course the fireplace. I wish we had another day and night in Zoar!

Wonderful 2day stay !!!

Wonderful Stay!

I'm so long over due, months over due to write this review. I apoligize Patrick! No hard feelings! This was our first B&B experience and it was ideal! Since our stay in late July, my now husband and I finished our wedding planning and got married in September and shortly later found out we are expecting in June 2014 - times have been busy!! Our stay in Cloe's room was clean, neat, fresh linens, and beautifully decorated. Breakfast and coffee (always availiable) was delicious and so were the pumpkin cookies! The mill itself has wonderful country charm, great places to relax inside and out, a beautiful backyard to explore, and bird watching. Patrick was so friendly and a wonderful innkeeper, very knowledgeable about Zoar, surrounding area, and dining suggestions. Without hesitation, I highly reccomend Cider Mill of Zoar! See you in the future! We had great coversation. Hope all is well. -Tommy & Marina
