Circa 1882. Formally The Mead House, the Italianate Victorian served as the Hyde family home for nearly 90 years before operating as a rental, student housing, and finally as a restored bed and breakfast. The estate features a fully-equipped kitchen, sunny dining room, cozy sitting room, parlor, and four guest rooms. The guest rooms, decorated in muted tones, boast private bathrooms; two feature clawfoot soaking tubs. Enjoy continental breakfast onsite or use the complimentary coupon for a hot breakfast at nearby Fullbrook’s Café. Take a short stroll to Nelsonville Square or relax on the large wraparound porch watching the world walk by. The inn is close to hiking and biking trails in Wayne National Forest and canoeing, fishing, and swimming in Lake Hope and is a popular stop for parents and alumni visiting Ohio University.

Historic Interest

This beautiful National Register Italianate Victorian house (formerly known as The Mead House) was built in 1882 and became the home of Dr. Jerry Morris Hyde and the Hyde Family descendants for almost 90 years. Originally built by Dr. I. P. Primrose for his daughter Sarah and her new husband, it was sold to Dr. Hyde in 1890. The two doctors were friends, neighbors and also partners in several Nelsonville real estate ventures. When the last Hyde descendent passed away in 1977, the house became a succession of homes, rentals and student housing, until it was rescued and beautifully restored as a Bed & Breakfast by Michael and Sheila Mark in 2006. In 2009 long-time Bed & Breakfast entrepreneur and history lover Sue Maxwell became owner. Sue carried own the B&B tradition until 2016. Sue owns the Primrose Bed & Breakfast across the street. Carrying on Sue's tradition we hope you enjoy being able to “Sleep with History” at the Hyde House in Nelsonville!
