Primrose Bed and Breakfast

167 Fort Street , Nelsonville, OH 45764 USA (Show map)

About

This exuberant 1892 Queen Anne Victorian house was built by Dr. Isaac Porter Primrose, and was once the Doctor’s office and the home of his family. The house has fabulous oak trim and floors, colorful stained glass transoms, and original oak kitchen cabinets with marble countertop. After being a residence for well over a century, the house has now been completely restored as a Bed and Breakfast. Four colorful Guest rooms offer private baths, several of which have required very creative plumbing! We have restored the walled garden and added off-street parking, a back porch, a brick patio and a wood deck, as well as a cute garden shed with another porch for additional outdoor seating. This former barren space is now entirely planted with flowering and fruiting trees, shrubs and perennials to attract birds, bees and butterflies. We are especially courting the Monarch butterflies which are 90 percent extinct; and have had good success by planting several varieties of the milkweed plant, their only food source.
