My family - two adults and three children - stayed with Ron and Sue last summer and we could not have had a better place to stay. From the handwritten note welcoming us to The Whimsical Pig, the cookies left out on the kitchen counter and the beautiful and filling breakfast each morning, to Ron letting our children drive their golf buggy on the morning we left, Ron and Sue always made sure that we felt welcome and at home. There are so many little antiques to discover throughout the house and Ron and Sue had a long list of places to go an see in the area and of recommendations in Ohio. The Whimsical Pig was a truly memorable place to stay.
B&B's are all about the people who own them. Don't miss Ron and Sue, two of humanity's finest! We loved them immediately. And wow, the home is exquisite. If you look up the word "whimsical", it means playful, with a sweet humorous connotation, which describes the entire experience perfectly. DO NOT miss the master suite, the tub alone is worth the price of admission. The king bed is to die for (and we sell mattresses for a living so you can trust us on this!) I didn't notice the chocolates on the nightstand until after I got in bed. Sigh. Yes, I had to get up and brush my teeth all over again. The Whimsical Pig inside me could not wait until morning!
We had bid on a gift certificate to the Whimsical Pig at a silent auction benefit for Crown Point Ecology Center in 2015. Due to a very busy year and a number of unfortunate events we were unable to book before early 2017, but Ron and Sue graciously extended our expiration date several times and our stay was well worth the wait. Ron welcomed us and treated us to wine and cheese. We had a wonderful dinner out at his recommendation and returned to a quiet evening by the fire. The Chester White room had a cozy rustic feel but with all the modern day amenities. Breakfast was phenomenal and they easily accommodated our vegetarian diet. We are already planning our next trip to the Pig!
The Whisical Pig was absolutely lovely! It is so obvious that the owners take tremendous pride in their bed and breakfast. Every inch of the house is immaculate. The rooms are decorated with such loving care. The owners are an absolute pleasure. It was so special that they provide cheese and crackers and wine or beer upon your arrival and the breakfast was delicious! I would highly recommend staying here if you're in the neighborhood.
My wife and I stayed for two nights at this BnB and simply loved it. We have been to countless BnBs (AirBnB and otherwise) across multiple countries but by far found this to be the best of all. It is less of a BnB and more of an upscale resort experience at a reasonable price. Our room was big with a king sized bed, a seating area and a huge bathroom with a spotless free-standing bath tub. The property was very well maintained and carefully designed with a lot of antique collectibles. Sue and Ron were the most kind hearted and genuine couple who made us feel welcome right from the minute we stepped into their home. They also have a big backyard with a stream/small waterfall. We would highly recommend this place.
We stayed four nights at this lovely b&b. Every day felt more like home. Ron and Sue went out of their way to make us feel welcome, included and pampered! The room was comfortable, quiet and lovely. Breakfast was the best I have ever eaten, anywhere, no exceptions! The bathroom was big, well-equipped and charming. It was obvious how much love and attention went into the renovation of this farmhouse. Do yourselves a favor, and stay at this wonderful B&B.
It was an absolute pleasure staying at The Whimsical Pig! The rooms were cozy and comfortable and were tended to with detail, warmth and love. The personalies of the rooms were composed with such care, that we couldn't help but feel instantly at ease, and as if we were really at a "home away from home." It was so nice being able to spend a Northeastern Ohio night next to a private fireplace and in a warm bath! The convenience of being able to walk across the street and check out the nice selection of local wines at Wolf Creek Winery was an added bonus. Ron and Susan were such great and gracious hosts, providing hospitality, good conversation, delicious wine and cheese, and an absolutely fantastic breakfast. (I mean, the breakfast was just awesome!) We can't wait to stay with them again! I genuinely look forward to spending time at the Whimsical Pig in the near future to repeat our wonderful experience, and to see the property in another season.
I have been to a few b and b's over my life but none as homey and welcoming as this. We came in and had wine by a fire took a nap went out to dinner and came back to chocolates on the pillows of the bed remade. Sue made us breakfast. Sue and Ron both were very nice and the cats were friendly too. Great stay cation.
This house is beautiful inside and out. The rooms were very very clean and comfortable. Ron and Sue are very hospitable. They welcome you with a personalized sign and appitizers. We had cheese, fruit, and wine when we arrived. The next morning we had one of the best breakfast meals that I have ever had. This is your home away from home!
A beautiful home and garden. If you enjoy a house that's inviting and comfortable, make this a stay on your list if vacationing in the area, or even a weekend getaway. My wife and I were in the Cleveland/Akron area, and stayed three delightful days. We were impressed by all the antique furnishings immaculately maintained and displayed throughout the house and garden (beautifully landscaped). Ron & Sue were great hosts,sincerely concerned for all our needs. We travel quite a bit, and this by far was the best value for our $$. I forgot the breakfasts- Sue is an excellent cook. Creative and delicious. Jon & Donna Mc
We really enjoyed our last minute break on Easter weekend. Ron and Sue were wonderful hosts. The Whimsical Pig is a very nice B&B. We were close to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and spent our days hiking and sightseeing. Sue made the most incredible breakfasts. Everything about the trip was outstanding. We definitely would recommend the Whimsical Pig. Benita and Lee.
I love it, love it , love it. What a fantastic place to stay, Ron and Sue are kind, personable, caring, loving people that makes your stay an incredible experience not to mention the delicious and elegant breakfast served early in the morning.
The Whimsical Pig rates as one the best B&Bs in the country. The Bishops are wonderful, gracious, and generous hosts. The breakfasts were excellent and the attention to detail is nothing short of amazing. The comfort of the bed and furnishings throughout the house are warm and inviting, making it a great experience. As a business traveler and avid fan of great B&Bs, this is one of my very favorites. - E. Papke
Our stay at The Pig Valentines weekend was Outstanding! Ron and Sue are very warm and welcoming! The weather outside was cold and snowy but you would not know it on the inside. Their warm hospitality, beautiful room with a fireplace and soaking tub and peace and quiet all made for a very special Valentine getaway. Breakfast was delicious ! This was our second time at The Pig and we definitely will be back! We highly recommend this most special place run by very special people. Terry & Roseann
Absolutely, hands down, one of the very top B&B's we have stayed in. Immaculate! Welcoming! Warm and cozy! I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. Our car was free of snow when we left despite the snowy morning! Definitely would recommend to anyone, and we plan on coming back!!!!
I celebrated my 65th birthday here - what a great experience ! We are already planning to return for our anniversary. We had evening meal here and food was excellent. Hosts Sue and Ron are wonderful!!!
My husband and I stayed at the Whimsical Pig 12/2014. Ron and Sue were amazingly patient and accommodating during the reservation process. We had an extra long wait for vacation time approval from work, and they were very gracious and patient with the whole process. The Inn is lovely, and has an interesting history. It was decorated for Christmas during our stay, which was fun. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much. Everything was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the appetizers, and breakfast was delicious. The Whimsical Pig is a great find, and a wonderful addition to the Copley area. We highly recommend.
Too many adjectives to list! My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in November there for a night and all i can say is, go and see for yourselves! will NOT disappoint! Ron & Sue will treat you right! We will definitely be going back soon and plan on making it an annual stop for sure! We've already recommended it to all out friends/family! Tom & Sandy S.
We stayed here in November for our 20-something anniversary, and loved it! We had a huge suite with an extra-large soaking tub and a cozy fireplace. Ron and Sue are the best! Super friendly and interesting people - they helped us celebrate our anniversary with Champagne and hors d'oeuvres and we got to know them a little before heading out for the night. By the next morning, my husband said he felt a million miles away even though we were close to home. Our breakfast the next morning was super-delicious too. Highly recommend it!
This is a little bit of heaven tucked away across the street from a very nice winery and vineyard. Makes for a nice visit to both places. We were lucky enough to see it in late Summer and see the incredible landscaping which includes a magnificent waterfall in the back where you can set on a nice patio or up close near the falls. Also stayed closer to Christmas and the entire home was beautifully decorated for the Holidays. A very nice cheese,and fruit plate was waiting for us with wine, and breakfast was a special treat. Every attention to detail is the best way for us to describe this home away from home and can not wait for a visit this Spring.
My wife and I try to take a long weekend each year for our anniversary. We have stayed at several B&Bs over the years, and all have been very nice. But "The Pig" was especially nice. The farmhouse was so warm and inviting. The Christmas decorations were just amazing and the detail was fantastic. We enjoyed seeing many of the toys and games of yesteryear displayed under the tree that complemented the historic nature of the house and furnishings. What great memories those sights invoked of a time gone by to reflect on during our stay. The breakfasts were second to none. But even with all that said, Ron and Sue, along with Robin the innkeeper made all that pale in comparison. They made us feel so welcome and did all the little things to make our stay very special. We couldn't have been happier with our stay.
The most wonderful B&B that we have ever visited! Ron and Sue, the owners, have converted an old farmhouse(s) over the last 19 years to a beautiful, welcoming, comfortable paradise. Sue has been collecting antiques over her entire life and her flair for unpretentious decorating makes this home a beautiful, restful, inviting respite. I honestly did not want to leave. The variety of rooms are beautifully decorated with an amazing attention to detail. Everything from the comfort of the mattress, crispness of the linens, room temperature, quietness and great breakfast worked together to provide an exceptional visit. The grounds are beautiful with a soothing waterfall and fish pond. We are going back at the first opportunity.
We were looking for a place to stay after a concert at Blossom Music Center and found "The Pig". We were very impressed with every aspect of the property and our stay. Ron and Sue are such great hosts and the house is so well restored and decorated. Every detail was perfect. We will be back.
Beautiful place... warm and gracious (and informative) hosts...delicious breakfasts... lovely locale. Could not have asked for anything better for a 2-night stay in early August while visiting neaby Cleveland and Canton.
Our family stayed at the Whimsical Pig in June for a family reunion and it was fantastic. Not only were the breakfast menus awesome, the place was very well kept and decorated nicely. Ron and Sue are such welcoming people and embraced having our family, including our four small children! We would stay here again for sure.
We recently stayed at The Whimsical Pig for a family reunion; my family traveled from Charlotte to visit extended family in Norton. Ron and Sue were incredibly kind and accommodating. We had several young children with us, but Ron and Sue didn't bat an eyelash and even went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable. Ron and Sue were interactive and fun to talk with but knew when to let us be together as a family. Breakfast was delicious each morning! We will definitely stay at The Whimsical Pig again.
My wife Jaime and I booked this B&B for our 5 year anniversary as it was close to home and we didn't want to be too far from our 5 month old on our first weekend away from him. At the last minute, our babysitter wasn't able to watch him and we had to bring our son, Lucas with us. Sue and Ron were extremely accommodating to our needs, allowing us to use their kitchen to make up bottles. Our first weekend away from our son turned into our first family vacation, and it couldn't have happened as seamlessly without them. We will be returning.
As B & B travelers, this was one of the best we have visited. After a horrendous drive in downpour rain, we were greeted by a vivacious hostess who served us wine and a cheese tray. We, also had a wonderful dinner there. We spent a very relax time in this remodeled farmhouse with beautiful decor and furniture. The best part was feeling at home and sharing conversation with lots of laughs.
My husband surprised me with an overnight at The Whimsical Pig in October 2013. What a fabulous surprise! Ron and Sue were unbelievable hosts. I was nervous about staying at a b&b, but those worries were soon put to rest. We arrived and got settled in our room, we stayed in the Gloucestershire Room. The house is absolutely stunning from top to bottom. Intricately decorated, you find yourself looking at a stunning antique around every corner. The home is meticulously clean. We began our evening with wine, homemade bread and dips, fresh fruit, and olives which were all delicious. We dined outside in the gorgeously landscaped backyard next to the koi pond. It was so delightful and relaxing. We did go to a local restaurant for dinner, but honestly we were quite full from all our earlier snacks. And now that we know, I would definitely rather dine at the house. The room is so beautiful yet comfortable. Breakfast was another treat the following morning. So worth it! I don't normally think of Copely, OH as a get-a-way location, but The Whimsical Pig makes you feel as it you are at a resort location. Can't wait until our next visit, we will be sure to get the picnic lunch and go to the winery across the street!
