This was a very cozy and comfortable B&B. Joe and Susan were excellent hosts and the food was to die for. The location is off of the beaten path and in some of Ohio's more attractive woodlands.

We love history. Unfortunately had I been living in the 1830-70's timeframe, I would probably have been a scullery maid. SO the opportunity to step back in time & eat & sleep in a REAL early 1800's house was too much to resist! We discovered Hallauer House a few years ago when attending the Lorain County Fair in nearby Wellington, OH (another must-go!) We have returned each time we head back to Ohio. The ambiance of the house with its Union Bedroom & Confederate Bedroom, not to mention the breakfasts with taste that matches the eye appeal are just the tip of the iceberg. There is a big heated pool, lots of seating & playthings for the pool & beyond that a fantastic whimsical walk back to the Gazebo where you can relax, listen to nature's orchestra or play a variety of CD's on the recorder. A stream meanders from up toward the pool down next to the gazebo. Currently an "alligator" & "duck" mosey around in circles. When we approached one morning, a live frog was sitting on the alligator's head. Turtles have been known to venture in too, that's why there are no more fish. RELAXING! You don't have a care in the world. I suppose I should have brought my 'Scarlett O'Hara dress' however, on that point I am thankful we can dress for the weather. Imagine having to swelter outside in all those clothes. OH YES... for a house as old as it is... Totally up to date with HVAC throughout. cool in summer, warm in winter. Jacuzzi, Sauna, all the amenities. Nearby Oberlin boasts their famous college & parents book Hallauer house up wayyy in advance to stay at this wonderful bit of history tucked in the Ohio byway. Did I mention that Joe's civil war knowledge makes hearing history fun? He discovered from former owners that it was one of the places in Ohio where the underground railroad thrived. Both he & Sue are wonderful hosts who cater to your dietary needs or any thing else they can to accommodate guests. That's why we keep returning. Love it!

A lovely stay in this historic home with innkeepers who are very knowledgeable about local lore. The breakfast was wonderful and the suite very comfortable. The grounds are charming.
