Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Born in Buffalo, attended Miami Univ. OH; career city planner, retired in 2011 to fulfill a dream- restoring a historic house into a lovely B & B. After 19 months and lots of help from some great contractors and my daughter, the Captain Bell House opened as a B & B on April 28, 2013

Why the Owner Chose Vermilion, OH, USA:
The 1876 house retains original float glass windows, walnut newel post and curved railing, 10' ceilings, and arched pocket doors. There is a special warm feeling about this house that captures your heart the moment you walk thru the door.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Every suite has its own unique character and has been lovingly restored, yet with modern comforts. Great location in the downtown so you can walk 2 blocks to the lake, 4 blocks to the beach and 11 restaurants (including Zagat's 'exceptional- to perfect' rated Chez Francois) within 3 blocks.
