My Favorite B&B Ever!!

What a lovely, comfortable, and warm bed and breakfast. From the floors to the fireplace wood work, the beauty and detail is indescribable. Each room is clean, spacious, and beautifully appointed. There are warm gas fireplaces in each room, and the views from atop the hill overlooking Cambridge are stunning. Carol, the owner, and her sister Patty will make you feel as though you have just walked into a dear friends home. They know no strangers. Breakfast of sausages and eggs and fresh fruit yogurt, English muffins and fresh jams, orange juice, coffee and tea was served piping hot and most generous servings. There is is so much to do in Cambridge and just a few miles down the road is Ohio's largest and most beautiful state park, Salt Fork. This is truly a bed and breakfast worthy of a vacation whether or not you are from Ohio or out of state. You will never regret it!!

Romantic /Bad Breakfast

We stay at the Colonel Taylor Inn Bed & Breakfast. The room was nice.The ( breakfast) not so great. They said they would have snacks in the parlor not. We came down for breakfast, not ready. They did not tells us what time breakfast was.It was after 9:00am before we started eating.Not so good breakfast.They said it would be a 5-course breakfast (NOT). When I check out Bed&Breakfast, I go to the (Breakfast Menu) first to see what is on the menu.Then I book the Inn. I have very ( High Standers) now. After staying at the Bernerhof Inn in Washington Valley NH.The breakfast every morning was out of this world (Mike) .So now all other Bed&Breakfast has to Top this.

Not what we expected - new owner

As a preface, we exclusively stay in B&Bís and have stayed in some of the nicest, mostly in the Midwest (Door County Wisconsin, Northern Michigan, etc). The positive of our visit: This property is worth visiting, but exclusively to see this magnificent home. The level of detail that went into building this home is amazing. Further, it is astonishing that many of the brilliant features of this home have not been altered in the 135+ years that it has been standing. Itís truly a piece of history and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to see this home. The not so great parts of our visit: Prior to our arrival we attempted to call but the call kept on going to a business phone that was not accepting messages. We thought we had the wrong number but we didnít. The new owner, Carol, is a real estate agent in the local area. The phone number goes to her realty office. When we arrived we were greeted by Carolís mother and shown to our room. The fireplace had been on for a considerable about of time and the room was roasting. Her mother said she did not know how to turn off the fireplace. We figured it out, but the room was so hot, we opened all of the windows (the storm windows were still installed); the room was not going to cool off quickly. We did meet Carol as we were headed out to dinner and found out she was the owner but she only stays when there are guests. She owns a farm also in addition to the realty office. We immediately felt as though our stay was a bit of a burden to her. When we started asking questions about the house, she knew very little about the house. When asked if she had to do much work much to the property after purchasing (because itís so beautiful and in great condition) she only talked about all of the work and renovations she had done and was planning to her third floor living space. We returned from dinner and realized no one told us what time breakfast was. We also wanted to know if we could get ice. So, we asked Carol. Breakfast was at 9:00 a.m. and we could use the refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen. She would have shared all of this information if she would have checked us in but she was busy with another matter. Her mother only shows people to their rooms. Breakfast was fine Ė nothing great. Itís not a 5 course breakfast as stated on the website. If you like oatmeal and toast you will be fine. You also will not receive fresh fruit and cookies mid-afternoon as the website mentions. We went back up to the room and took a nap. We didnít sleep much the night before because the room was still a sauna. The fireplace/mantel continued to radiate heat for hours after the fireplace was turned off. When we went downstairs Carol said her goodbyes to us. I said, weíll still see you tomorrow, right? The short version of the story is that she thought we were only staying one night. Sheís so busy with her other endeavors that she didnít even know how many nights we were staying. It was very awkward to say the least. Then the next morning, Sunday, we came downstairs just before 9 a.m. and she said she didnít make breakfast because she wasnít sure we would remember that it was daylight savings time! With all of the electronic devices today, itís almost impossible to forget! We couldnít wait to get home. We wanted to eat and leave. Last, the room. Although the room itself is quite beautiful because of the house and the woodwork, three things stood out like a sore thumb. One, the shower curtain is orange at the bottom. I wondered if it had ever been washed since Carol took over the B&B. Surely she hasnít stayed in the room. Second, the TV was at least 15 old. It is a behemoth of a thing with a built in VHS (thatís how I know itís old!) and DVD. The sound is so terrible that itís annoying. We really just wanted to watch the news, however, had we wanted to watch a movie, it would have been too distracting. If Carol can spend lots of money on her own private area, then either remove something that is outdated and works poorly or spend a few hundred dollars on something that is nice and works properly. If this is supposed be a high end B&B make sure the amenities are high end. Third, there is a rather large hole in the wall (size of a 50 cent piece) above the TV and a mirror on the floor. Itís fairly obvious what the problem is. So, either fix the problem, remove the mirror from the room temporarily while the problem is being fixed, or cover the problem up with another picture. Other little items in the room Ė peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, fixtures (TP holder, towel bars, and light above the TV) that donít fit with the home. They look like they were bought at the dollar store. Drawers are lined with paper that is pieced together. Summary Ė no one is really paying attention to these rooms and the guest experience. All of these incidents, isolated, would have been insignificant, but coupled together , they show a proprietor that isnít really interested in running a B&B. For those of us that love staying at B&Bís part of the charm is getting to know the owner of the property. Thatís what makes us return year after year. Itís a relationship that develops. When staying at a property that is old and has a history like this one does, visitors expect the proprietor to know the history. Carol doesnít know much and doesnít really seem to care. Carol probably couldnít tell you one thing about us except for what is on our reservation. She didnít ask us if we were celebrating anything special, if we needed help finding anything to do on Saturday, and in general didnít talk with us, she just talked to us. I know more about her than I should or care to. There are 8 cats in the house and she is vehemently opposed to spaying and neutering at appropriate times. One cat, the mother of 6 of them, she thought was in heat during that weekend, but she had not had time to get the female spayed. She was in the process of getting the 6 month + old kittens spayed but only had 3 of them done this week. She told us her farm house has over 100 cats and I donít remember how many dogs and countless other animals. She has no idea what my background is regarding animals and to share this kind of information with someone else is strange and odd. She had very strong opinions about some things that were just not appropriate to share with someone that you donít know and donít know anything about. If you look at the reviews for this property, only 4 have been written since Carol took over the property and only 3 of them were written while she was at the home. One mentions Susan who is her manager. Iím guessing reviews werenít written because the experiences were mediocre. It is possible, the guests that wrote the positive reviews ďclickedĒ with Carol or they have very low expectations of what a B&B proprietor does. The best B&Bís are ones that are occupied by the owner, when it is their passion/profession, and when they take pride in the home that they own and maintain every portion of the home as if it is a reflection on themselves. Proprietors of old homes are generally passionate about the history of the home. Generally, B&B proprietors enjoy meeting people and sharing their home. Itís a business, not an afterthought or an inconvenience to them.

Drive out of your way to stay here!

The Colonel Taylor Inn is the best B&B we have stayed in throughout the USA and Europe. The period rooms, history of the home, great breakfasts, and last but not least, the hostess and staff were outstanding. On the evening we arrived, while having a drink on the porch with other guests, we were served leftovers from a catering affair the Inn had hosted, a complete delicious meal, while we waited for our local friends to come and pick us up. After they arrived, they were also included in the feast! The owner and hostess joined us and provided us with the history of the home and it was a great welcomed to Cambridge. During our stay when we returned at night, after being out with our friends, we were greeted with cookies or cake for a bedtime snack. I recommend you drive out of your way to stay at this B&B!

Restful & relaxing couple of days

What a nice place to spend a couple of days with friends. This Victorian is absolutely beautiful, comfortable, clean, and a great place to unwind. Breakfast in the lovely dining room was excellent as was the dinner that Carol prepared for us. Afternoon snacks of cookies and tarts awaited us as we returned from shopping. This is a terrific B & B. Thanks Carol.

Wonderful

We stayed at Colonel Taylor for a "girlfriends getaway". It was fantastic; clean, spacious, comfortable, all the things you could want in a B&B. The house is "must see", the woodwork and details are amazing. We had dinner there one night and it was was excellent. Carol was an incredible hostess, she made us feel right at home. I would recommend this inn to anybody.

New Owners

We recently stayed at Colonel Taylor Inn with the new owner. Carol was wonderful. We were her first guests since her purchase of the inn. The hospitality was great. We cannot say enough about the warm of the inn and the beauty. When we arrived we were greeted by Susan, Carol's assistant and given a little history of the inn. It is a truly fascinating place. That evening after dining at a local establishment, we were treated to Yum-Yum Cake that Carol had prepared. It was delicious. The next morning we were fed a gourmet breakfast that was wonderful. We loved it so much we can't wait to go back!

A nearly perfect weekend

I cannot reccommend The Colonel Taylor highly enough. The owners Jim and Patricia are warm wonderful people who made my wife and me feel welcome from the moment we entered. The inn itself is a treasure you must see to believe. Our room was immaculate and cozy. The food was to die for. We spent Christmas at the inn and the Christmas dinner Jim prepared was out of this world. In fact every meal was a treat. My wife is a vegetarian and Jim prepared delicious meals for her. We will definately be back.

Best stay possible

I was recently in Cambridge for business, and the Colonel Taylor Inn was the best possible place I could have imagined to stay. The owners are so welcoming (and cook a mean French toast) and the inn itself is gorgeous, and had just been outfitted with holiday decorations. I would very very strongly recommend.

Peaceful and Relaxing

The Colonel Taylor Inn is a beautiful historic Inn. The environment there is peaceful and relaxing. Our 28th wedding anniversary was the reason for our trip to the Colonel Taylor and we spent a enjoyable evening relaxing by the fireplace. Our hosts Patricia and Jim were delightful and gave us information on the house's history and what to see and do in Cambridge. Breakfast was excellent.

Romantic Peaceful Comfort

We were given a night's stay as a gift. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this gorgeously appointed historical home. We were treated like "friends who came to visit" by the owners. The peacefulness was much appreciated. We rested so well and the breakfast was delicious. We DID NOT want to leave!! We would definitely go there again!

Most Romantic Getaway!

My boyfriend surprised me with a visit to this bed and breakfast while we were traveling to Ohio. It was the first b&b we had ever experienced, and it set the tone for all the rest. The service was amazing, the company was perfect. It was quiet and romantic and an amazing visit all the same. The town was adorable, they suggested a list of things to do that night and all were perfect. We have plans to visit again already, they worked so hard to build this beautiful home, and their work definitely paid off! I was completely impressed and wish we could have spent more time there. I suggest everyone take a trip to The Colonel Taylor Inn, it was a visit to remember!

InnSide Tip -
We went New Years day, and there were horse carriage rides that go through the town from November through mid January. That was fun, as well as a light show at the Court House for Christmas. Enjoy!

Wonderful Anniversary Surprise

My husband and I just got back from a most wonderful experience. We spent our 41st anniversary at the Colonel Taylor Inn B&B. We stayed in the Rose Room. This room had two fireplaces. One in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. When my husband first told me we were staying in an Inn built in 1878 I thought for sure we would be cold the whole time. But, this Inn is much warmer than my own home and cozy and comfortable. Even though the temperature never got out of the 20's outside we were very much warm inside. The breakfasts were wonderfully prepared and delicious. Jim and Patricia were wonderful hosts and we would HIGHLY re3commend this Inn to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

Very Enjoyable

The B&B is beautiful and our rooms were wonderful, spacious and very comfortable. We were disappointed in the breakfast. The baked apple was mushy and not sweet at all. The egg dish would have been good, but was way too spicy (not appropriate for breakfast in my opinion). The coffee cake was good, however it was only sample-size. My sister was displeased with her tea, the water was not hot, and after asking if she could get boiled water for tea, the water still wasn't hot. Our coffee wasn't hot either, and it was a little weak. Also, I am a little puzzled, because I saw on the web-site that there were supposed to be complementary afternoon refreshments, however we were not told of this. I had asked if we could get cold drinks and was told I could propably have some ice water; so my sisters and I got some refreshments from Rite-Aide and took back to our rooms. All in all though we had a good time. The Colonel Taylor is a really beautiful historic home!

Fabulous & romantic!

My husband and I stayed in the Rose Room for our honeymoon in April, 2009. The inn's charming and traditional decor provided a relaxing atmosphere while also adding a romantic ambiance. I couldn't believe the size of the bathroom! It was definitely worth the few extra dollars to stay in that room. I am glad that I bought a copy of the Col. Taylor Inn cookbook because for our one year anniversary I thought it would be a sweet touch to reminisce and prepare one of the quiche recipes for a special brunch. It (bacon and double cheese) was terrific!

Warm & peaceful retreat

Arrived a week "late" due to communication problems and taken in with grace and warmth. Wonderful first time experience at a B&B. Patricia and Jim greeted us, gave us great info about the area and directions to our next destination. Breakfast was delicious and more than enough. Bedroom made me feel like a princess. Will recommend this B&B to others traveling in NE Ohio.

Romantic Anniversary Getaway

The hosts Jim & Pat were very hospitable and informative about the history of the mansion. It was quite grand. Beautiful woodwork and very clean! It was the picture of what you think victorian in your mind would be. We found the Inn on line at the last minute and were accommodated by Jim by a particular request. He made our anniversary a happy one! Our one and only complaint (or disappointment) would have been the portions given at breakfast. We received one piece of French toast and one Silver Dollar size piece of sausage. It was very good tasting though. Just not filling for my 6'2", 300 lb. husband.

Lovely & Relaxing

The Inn is beautiful, quiet and relaxing. Jim and Pat are lovely hosts and Jim is a fabulous cook. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We had a wonderful time in Cambridge, thanks to Jim and Pat.

Perfect!

A great getaway from everyday life. We were the only guests in the house for the two nights we stayed. We felt so welcomed by the owners and the house is a historical treasure. Their gourmet breakfasts will leave you wanting more; you will definitely end up buying their cookbook!

Romantic

We visited the, beautifully restored, Colonel Taylor Inn on Thanksgiving Weekend 2008(Arrived the Friday after Thanksgiving and left on Saturday). This was our second visit to the inn and we loved it just as much as the first time we stayed there. The inn was wonderfully decorated for the Christmas season. Combine that with the rich history involved with the house and property, and it transported us back to days of old. The room was cozy and comfortable. Although we had planned on venturing out to see the local sights, on the evening we arrived, we, instead, opted to snuggle in front of the working gas fireplace, which was a very warm and romantic plus for a very chilly November night. Our stay was heightened even more when we found out that historic Cambridge, Ohio, was having a lot of their opening ceremonies to kick off the Christmas season on that Saturday. We enjoyed the Courthouse Lighting and Christmas parade. It was a time spent together that we will cherish for years to come. As we told our gracious hosts, Jim and Patricia, "We've stayed in two of the four rooms" (the Rose Room and the Magnolia Room). "We need to come back at least 2 more times to experience the remaining rooms." Paul and Kathy Hatalsky

InnSide Tip - Get the dinner package
Our first stay at the Colonel Taylor Inn was two years ago. We had a gift certificate and splurged for the Dinner package at the inn. Let me tell you that the food was like eating at the best restaurant you can find anywhere. Jim and Patricia are excellent cooks. If you can, splurg on the dinner package.

Just the very best!

The photos do not do it justice... We were in awe! The most luxurious romantic experience we have ever had at a Bed & Breakfast. We will be returning often... Bob & Jen, Uniontown, OH

Romantic

The Colonel Taylor Inn B&B is the most Romantic Inn ever... From the private dinner for two by candlelight to the beautiful, comfortable Rose room with a whirlpool tub, candles, working fireplaces in the bathroom and the bedroom, it was just the most Romantic. The Taylor Mansion is fabulous, the food is fabulous and the hosts provide impeccable service. We go every year for our anniversary and wish we could go more often... Ray & Paula

Charming

This B&B is the best and overall the most charming Inn we have ever visited. So much history behind this Inn and the scenery was just simply breathtaking. The Innkeepers were very nice and the breakfast was so tasty. We will defintely visit again!
