Attack on Fort Sumter

April 15, 1861

The tension between the North & South came to a head when President Lincoln decided to hold on to Ft. Sumter in Charleston, S.C. Nobody was killed in the battle, but during the salutes of the Confederate victory, Private Daniel Hough was killed and so became the first casualty of the Civil War.

Hallauer House Bed& Breakfast  

in Oberlin Ohio is a small, historical Bed and Breakfast Inn that features just 3 guest rooms but what is lacking in number of rooms is made up for in ambiance, amenities, historical presence, friendliness, helpfulness, and gracious hospitality.


We are located in Pittsfield Township just 3 miles south of Oberlin College campus and the historic town of Oberlin, Ohio which some refer to as 'the town that started the Civil War.' With that in mind, we have combined the history of Oberlin and the Civil War with the historical artifacts that we have collected over the years to create our Civil War themed
1830 Hallauer House Bed and Breakfast.
We are Oberlin's Historical and Environmentally Friendly Country Inn! The perfect alternative for overnight accommodations!

While exploring our web site, you will discover that we have our own on site exercise facility, swimming pool, sauna, music room and whimsical garden where you can relax by the rushing stream, run your toes through the sand on the mini beach, or just wander the paths and take time to smell the roses.

We cater to the business traveler and welcome Oberlin College parents, College conference attendees, Oberlin College alumni, prospective students, and ALL GUESTS who are looking for a place to getaway so they can relax and recharge. Those looking for an all inclusive package will find that we now offer seven distinctive and exclusive packages.

Our 4 course breakfasts are complimentary, first class gourmet, and served informally in a formal dining room setting or out by the pool in the summer sunshine where you will enjoy the singing birds and the fluttering butterflies.

History is often the number one topic at Hallauer House, especially the history of Oberlin, Oberlin College, the Underground Railroad and the Civil War. Other historical towns just minutes away and ready for exploring are Avon, Amherst, Elyria, Lorain, Avon Lake, North Ridgeville, Wellington, Lagrange, and Grafton. And don't forget the great Lake Erie, just 15 minutes north, where you can enjoy boating, fishing, dining, or just relaxing on the beach.

Oberlin is a small college town home to many unique retail stores, antique shops, and first class restaurants. There are musical and/or theatrical venues presented almost every weekend, a 13 mile bike trail to travel across, a world class art museum and a renowned museum of local history to explore. The Lorain County Metro Parks and Findley State Park are first class. You will leave wanting more!

So be sure to stop for a visit on each page of the web site to see the guest rooms, check the amenities, find a special or package, delve into history, get a peek at the gardens, and see what Oberlin and Lorain County have to offer. You won't be disappointed! We look forward to greeting you as a guest and having you return as a friend!

B & B's are definitely the "Better Way to Stay!"
