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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

I have never been to a bed and breakfast and Cider Mill was located in a beautiful little village. The B&B was immaculate. We stayed in Cloe's Room and it was amazing. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful location. It is about a 25 minute drive to Sugarcreek, but well worth it!

While the inn is nice, within 5 minutes of our arrival the husband informed us that his wife had moved to another state and he's only at the inn on the weekends until it sells. That being said- the inn is well decorated and comfortable. The service falls short now and here's what happened to us. We booked two nights (Sat eve and Sunday eve). On Sunday morning at breakfast the inn keeper verified (again) if we were staying the second night (yes- you charged our credit card for two nights- we're staying). He then informed the group that he works on Sunday morning and to show themselves out after breakfast- he would be back at 12:30. We proceeded to leave and came back at 4pm to an empty house...no big deal...we left again and came back at 6:30...no one home still...went to dinner and came back at 9pm...still no one home! The owner had returned to his new home state without telling us he was leaving (he had every opportunity and my cell phone number- no note- no nothing). Here's the kicker- we were the only guests and the only people wandering around the inn! Our room wasn’t cleaned- dirty coffee cups, dirty towels, dirty plates from the snacks the day before( he indicated that he had to leave us cookies because his wife told him to...). We sent a concerned email to his wife as we were worries he's been in an accident and would like to know he's OK. That was at 930pm. We checked the house for other occupants one last time at 1030pm (nope) and went to bed. Got up the next morning and two "new" people were on the first floor- the inn keepers daughters? They were there to give us breakfast and send us on our merry way (one daughter did say she came in late the night before to "spend the night" but we certainly didn’t hear her come in). At this point we have NO response from the inn keeper or his wife as to why everyone just left. Long story short- the place is nice but wait until it's under new ownership to stay here.

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.
