Wonderful stay in Oberlin!

4.8 on May 28, 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Hallauer House. We spent a delightful afternoon and evening relaxing by the refreshing pool and lovely gardens, followed by a fun evening of ping pong and darts in the game room. After a good nights sleep in the comfortable and well equipped room, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast by the pool. Susan and Joe were gracious and welcoming hosts who made us feel right at home. We will be returning soon. Our only minor issue was weak water pressure in the shower.

Wonderful Place

We were coming to town to pick up a puppy and our round trip was 10 hours so we were looking for a nice place to stay that was out of the ordinary--and we found it !!!! Rooms were nice and my husband loved the civil war reading material. I just loved the grounds and esp the breakfast the following day. The owners were very gracious and we met so many nice people that were staying there. Hope to get ack there again Thank you so much--Emily

Relaxing Home away from home for Oberlin Parents

We have been staying at Hallauer House for three years now, as our daughter is a junior at Oberlin. It is always a nice respite; the rooms are relaxing, checking in and out is easy, and Joe and Susan are warm and helpful.

Delightful Experience!

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. The entire house is like a museum with interesting Civil War and Oberlin history artifacts everywhere. Our hosts regaled us with fascinating stories of local history and served two absolutely delicious breakfasts with so many courses and large servings that we couldn't finish everything--but happily took our breakfast cakes and muffins with us on the road. Everything we needed was provided. Joe and Susan are warm, kind and cheerful people. Book reservations early because spots fill up quickly!

Oustanding historical treat

Joe and Susan are incredible hosts . breakfast are superb, beds are excellents, decoration of the rooms is to rave for, and Joe seems to be a reincarnation from the 19th century. His historical culture is just incredible, you could listen to him for hours and that makes his B&B a must-go in Oberlin.

Stayed one night as my daughter was visiting Oberlin College. Very old historic house with a lot of Civil War Memorabilia. Hosts were very nice and chatty.

We were attending a nearby wedding and chose Hallauer House from the website. Jackpot! Susan and Joe were excellent hosts and the house is so interesting and cozy. All the amenities of a five star hotel are included with a feeling of home that no hotel can offer. The gardens are whimsical and full of interesting objects. Breakfasts were top quality, delicious and served with fun conversations with our hosts. We will definitely return! Thank you Susan and Joe!! Jeane and Pam.

Wonderful B&B
