Historic Host B&B - Audio Slideshow

Historic Host bed and breakfast

Sue has been running bed and breakfasts for over 30 years, carrying on the business after her husband and business partner passed away seven years ago. She came across the two bed and breakfasts she runs in Nelsonville after going to view a different property with a real estate agent. Upon discovering this property just wasn’t for her, the agent took her to a bed and breakfast she had listed. Sue shortly after bought both that house and the one across the street and has enjoyed running them ever since.

She lives in the Hyde House, and keeps as busy as possible, volunteering around town when she isn’t hosting guests or preparing the houses. She also owns the Primrose House as well as a few cottages near Hocking Hills. All of her properties have some sort of historic significance, which is reflected in her business' name Historic Host. Sue says she never gets lonely, living and running the bed and breakfast. Everyone that stays there has to have a certain personality in order to be searching for the intimate qualities of a bed and breakfast as well as being willing to get to know the other guests and share each other’s stories. Everyone’s got a story, and Sue enjoys finding this in each and every one of her guests.
