Bed and Breakfast ~ Zoar, Ohio


{{If you are not an antique lover or enjoy viewing lots of photos, just skip this post.}}

Today I'd like to share with you the most wonderful bed and breakfast located in Zoar, Ohio, called the Cobbler Shop Bed and Breakfast. If you enjoy early antiques, you would LOVE this place. This is my second time staying there and I highly recommend it. Breakfast is wonderful too ~ no need for lunch after that feast.

This is building #22 in Zoar, Ohio. It is an early 19th century dwelling that was originally the village cobbler shop. It made all the shoes and boots for the community and could house as many as three families. It is listed on the National Registry as part of the historic district of Zoar Village. That's my friend Wink on the left, and Sandy, the owner, on the right.

Garden statuary
Sandy has the most marvelous collection of wall boxes!

German kugels hanging in the dining room windows

Looking in to the kitchen ~ the cupboard at the far end is a Soap Hollow piece.
I love the way she has displayed the cookie cutters on an antique peel.
Take a gander at these dough bowls in original paint!
Stone fruit. It was because of Sandy I learned of stone fruit.
Staffordshire dogs. WOWZA!
Rockingham pottery on an early whale tail shelf (with many whale tails!).
Isn't this hooked angel sweet? It is hanging high over a doorway.
Early chalkware animals
Close ups

Stencilled stair risers

I hope you have enjoyed my tour of the Cobbler Shop B & B. Sandy also an antique shop adjacent to the B & B. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and tell her Lauren said hi!

Pug hugs :)

Lauren, Thanks for sharing your trip to Zoar.
It is a wonderful place to visit, we try to get there at least once a year, ususally for the antique show, and I like to go before Christmas when they have the home tours when several of the resident's open their homes to the public. Did you get your dry sink?????
Hope to see you tomorrow at the Library.
