Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I bought the 1876 Captain Bell House in September 2011 to restore it to its full charm as a Bed and Breakfast Inn. Restoration of the old house was completed May 2013 and open for guests. The cottage renovations were done to high standards so this is the best lodging in town. My background includes city management and planning, real estate and residential construction. This is my second historic restoration, having won a Downtown Delaware OH Historic Award for my first.

Why the Owner Chose Vermilion:
I was looking for a historic property with character that needed to be saved. The Captain Bell House is still quite original, albeit without it's former front porch. Inside it still has its original 18, floor to ceiling windows with wavy float glass, some original board floors, a curving front stair with walnut railing and newel post. It had been long neglected but still was structurally sound, and its in-town location was superb. Every system and every surface of the main old house and the cottage were restored or renovated.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
At the Captain Bell house and cottage you can walk out your door, take ten steps and see Lake Erie. The fantastic Ritter library with its computers and tremendous print resources is next door. Coffee shops and restaurants (11 of them) are with 3 blocks. Vermilion's dozen downtown festivals literally take place at your front door. Set up your lawn chair and enjoy! Walk everywhere, and bring your well behaved pet.
