So.  You found us.  You found Ada, Ohio.

 

Maybe you're visiting a son or daughter at Ohio Northern University.  

Maybe you're an academic who's here to attend one of ONU's many forums and conferences, or you're here for a summer basketball or band camp.  

Perhaps you wandered into town while exploring the byways of US 30, the historic Lincoln Highway.  

Or maybe you're an urban escape artist, like we used to be, getting away for a weekend to experience life on the slow side, meet a farmer, tour a small, organic family farm.

Easter House is Ada's premiere bed and breakfast, offering visitors to our village a homey, unique and delight-filled alternative to a conventional hotel, motel or dormitory.

You won't find accommodations like this for miles around.

We're former New Yorkers who moved here because we wanted to live here.  No traffic.  Fewer distractions.  Bigger sky.  A warm welcome. 

Let us be your starting point for your adventures in rural Northwest Ohio.

The room is named for Lewis and Delilah Brewer, the First Couple of Easter House.  The Brewers moved to Ada in 1899, and quickly became fixtures in village life.  Brewer, an employee of Standard Oil Co. and a merchant of some sort, served on the village council.  When he died in 1903, four years after moving to Ada and only three years in Easter House, the University Herald obituary said "the village took on a perceptible gloom.  A tinge of sorrow shone from the eyes of business men, and though nothing may have been said, the sympathetic soul could read everywhere a personal heart felt loss.  Lewis Brewer is dead.”  

His wife lived in Easter House until her death on 11 July 1929.  One of her and Lewis' four children, Alexander, died three months before she did.

Lewis and Delilah Brewer are buried in Elms Grove Cemetery in St Marys, Ohio, where Lewis was born.

There's plenty to see in Ada and the small towns and cities that dot this part of rural Northwestern Ohio.  

 

 

Ohio Northern University

The dining room is where you'll come for a nourishing, home-cooked breakfast, made with organic milk, eggs, cheese and pork sourced from local farms.  The large built-in cabinet on the eastern wall used to be a pass-through into a former pantry.  The pass-through went from asset to liability when a former owner converted the pantry into a bathroom.   Our renovation of the bathroom took care of that problem by sealing up the bathroom side.  

Wilson Football Factory

This bright room is a perfect place to read a book, play a board game or work on your laptop using our free WiFi.  We've got backgammon, a cool game called Trumpet and plenty of poker chips if you want Mark to lead you in a round of Texas Hold 'Em.  Feel free to leaf through one of our books or vintage Newsweek, Time and Sports Illustrated magazines.

 

Art Space

The centerpiece of this room is the fireplace. Enjoy a drink by the fire, or settle down for a good read in a comfy chair.  There's also access from this room to the front and back porches. The den is also the place where you'll check in and out.

 

Parlor

In Victorian times, the parlor was the place to entertain guests and exchange news.  In these times, it's the TV room!  You're welcome to watch television or borrow one of our many DVDs to view on your laptop
