The Burr House

831 Burr Road P.O. Box 8, Wauseon, OH 43567 USA (Show map)


The Burr House was built in the mid-1800's as the home of a dairy farm called Wauseona Farms. Over the years many changes have been made, but the country hospitality is as warm as ever. As you enter the front doors, you step back into an era of peace and calm. You are free to enjoy the living room with fireplace, piano, TV, and books. In addition to a scrumptious breakfast in the Grand Kitchen, you are welcome to use the room on your own with its guest refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. You may want to pull up a chair beside the cast iron stove and enjoy the scenery of the countryside. In warm weather, take advantage of the patio with its hot tub.

Wonderful night in Wauseon!

I visited Ohio for genealogical research and had the pleasure of staying at this lovely B & B. Cheryl was very friendly and made a terrific breakfast. Wauseon is a very quaint town. I will definitely stay at the Burr House when I am in the area again.

Great Place to Stay

4.6 on July 29, 2013

The Burr House was my first experience at a bed and breakfast and I was totally surprised by how much I enjoyed the stay. Cheryl, the owner, makes everyone feel at home by her cheery personality and great hostess skills. Besides having a part of the kitchen guests can use, we were able to enjoy the living room for family time. Morning breakfast was a chance to enjoy Cheryl's culinary skills. If I am ever in the area again, I will definitely choose the Burr House!

The Burr House is OZ

The Burr House is OZ and Cheryl is the wizard. Pulling up to the Burr House was a very welcome site after traveling. Cheryl made my wife and myself feel welcome and at ease as soon as we arrived. Several members of my family stayed at The Burr House with us and felt the same as we did and was astounded how Cheryl could prepare a house for strangers that immediatly made you feel as if you were in your own home. The food that Cheyl prepared was delicious and presented just as if a Master Chef had prepared it. Cooper is a wonderful dog, that got along well with my parents dog. I have been to other B&B's and I would have to say they comparitively are not in the same class as The Burr House.

The extra special touches make it the BEST

I love love LOVE staying at the Burr House! Cheryl goes above and beyond to make sure that you not only feel at home but spoiled! The cafe corner in the kitchen for guests is always stocked with extra goodies you can help yourself to at anytime and on top of that there is always little extra surprise that make each stay special and unique! Love her creativity! The rooms, bathrooms, and entire house is always spotless too- not sure how she manages this with a houseful of guests but its amazing! We will stay here again and highly recommend to all!

Fantastic Get-away

My Fiance and I wanted a close to home get-away and the Burr House was the perfect stay! Our room, the Bridal Suite, was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Cheryl and Cooper were great hosts and made our stay very memorable and relaxing from the candles and chocolates in our room to a yummy french toast breakfast complete with our own foot warmer-thank you Cooper! Overall, the Burr House was everything we could want and more! Thank you!

An Excellent Place to Stay!

When visiting Wauseon, I will definitely plan another stay at The Burr House. Cheryl is an excellent cook, the accommodations were very clean and comfortable too. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was a treat watching Cooper run to fetch the morning paper too. Thank you Cheryl! : )

Wonderful weekend

This was my families first time to a bed & breakfast & it was more than any of us expected. Family friendly (loved the dog Cooper). Very clean and wonderfully delicious breakfast with more than enough to eat!

As a birthday surprise, I reserved the Bridal Suite for my boyfriend and I. It was a cold and wintry weekend in February but an absolutely warm and cozy stay at the Burr House. Everything from our room to our hostess, Cheryl, was welcoming and comfortable. We both enjoyed being pampered and left very relaxed and content. Thank you for your hospitality!

Right at home
