Midwest Living Review
Fans of classic bed & breakfasts will enjoy this beautifully restored, antique-filled inn. The building once served as the cobbler shop in Zoar's original communal society, which was founded by German separatists in 1817. Now it's a homey place to spend the night, with flowery wallpaper, historically appropriate antiques and quality reproduction furnishings. Each guest room has its own bathroom, although not all are on suite. Breakfasts are tasty and generous and served at a beautifully set table. We enjoyed banana walnut French toast, mushroom quiche, fresh fruit and bacon. Guests can help themselves to bowls of nuts, books and board games. The fabulous, huge screened back porch overlooks owner Sandy Worley's pretty gardens. Several porch seating areas make it easy for guests to either sit with others or on their own. The only thing that detracted from our stay was the strong scent of mothballs. Still, we think the Cobbler Shop is the most interesting inn in town.
