Our Second Stay Here

And it was every bit as good as the first one. Gary does a great job with the breakfast and is just fun to chat with. Such nice rooms throughout.

Comfort and Location

4.8 on August 26, 2018

We selected this B&B for its close proximity to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park trails, were we intending to hike. We weren't disappointment! Although the B&B is located on a fairly busy Main street, our room (Blue Hen) was quiet and comfortable (although small), and the back porch was a delight for sitting quietly or having breakfast when weather permitted. And the breakfasts were great! Gary prepared excellent, tasty breakfasts, including local honey and condiments, and good coffee! As a host, Gary was warm, friendly, communicative, attentive and full of interesting stories. Thank you, Gary - we totally enjoyed our stay!

A great place to stay; within walking distance of bike rentals, tow path, restaurants, visitors center, train depot. Innkeeper is helpful with directions and tips about the area. We ate outside on the veranda and the breakfasts were delicious.

Silver Fern B&B

We had an amazing stay, Gary went out of his way to make our visit brilliant. He was a wonderful host, providing us with information on what to see and do in Peninsula Ohio. The breakfast for the three mornings was kept at a standard of excellence. The creme brûlée oatmeal was amazing served along side of the warm cinnamon apple slices and thick cut bacon. It is a must stay place if you are visiting the Cayahoga National Park. We will be back.

Great location near national park

Spouse and I enjoyed a lovely 1 night stay at the Silver Fern B&B June 2018. It's at a great location, near Cuyahoga National Park. Host was very hospitable, and served a nice breakfast on the porch. The rooms are very clean, and the bed was good, though next time we will request a king sized bed due to our height. Would recommend this B&B.

Silver Fern was golden

Fabulous Experience!
