About

Nestled in the heart of Mount Vernon, Ohio, America's Hometown, this remarkable High Victorian mansion, Circa 1830. It is home to the fifth generation family and a National Award Winning Bed and Breakfast. The house is the former home of two prominent Ohio families. Dr. John Russell, physician and surgeon, was the first American to employ a female physician, Dr. Jane Payne, in 1852. His son-in-law, colonel William Cooper, a colonel in the Civil War with the Ohio Volunteer Infantry, had a distinguished career as an attorney, U.S. Congressman and Ohio Adjutant General. The Russell-Cooper House has undergone a faithful and loving restoration to its Victorian era of elegance. In addition to its unique furnishings and decorations, visitors will find a fascinating array of historical Russell-Cooper memorabilia, Civil War items, antique medical devices, rare books and more.

Highly Recommended: Fantastic location, Wonderful property, Welcoming & Accommodating owner

5 on February 14, 2011

Working at nearby Kenyon College, I was looking for a local property that I could stay during selected days throughout the Winter 2011. The Russell-Cooper House was a perfect choice. Location: The location is a few miles away from Kenyon College in Gambier, OH and centrally located on a residential street near quaint downtown Mt. Vernon, OH. Easily walkable to local attractions, restaurants, etc in the main town square. Property: The property is wonderful. Each room (6 in total) is individually decorated and located on either the 2nd or 3rd floor. All of the rooms include a large amount of space, a private bathroom and often a desk, sitting area or additional twin bed. An additional plus is the free wi-fi that is also available to guests. Perfect for not only business travelers, but also couples and those traveling with families. Property Owner: Having experience staying in numerous B&Bs throughout the U.S. and Canada, the property owner, Tom, is indeed one of the best . Tom is very proud of the property's heritage and very knowledge regarding local facts, places to visit and see while in Knox County. In addition, he has been more than accommodating in terms of scheduling, rates, and my individual needs while visiting the area. The Russell-Cooper House a wonderful choice for both business and leisure travelers. Highly recommended.
