The Mirabelle Bed & Breakfast offers cordial hospitality in an enchanting atmosphere. This turn of the century home was renovated and decorated with the comfort of our guests guiding every decision. The Innkeepers enjoy pampering their guests who have rated Mirabelle the number one B&B in Wooster.
As lifelong local residents your hosts, Steve and Susie Ellis, can provide you with a special view of Wooster and the surrounding area. Through their many travels, for business and pleasure, the Ellises have learned what it takes to make your stay an enjoyable experience.
The Mirabelle is located just two blocks north of the College of Wooster. The Ohio Light Opera at Freedlander Theater is a short walk from the Mirabelle. Unique shopping experiences can be found in nearby downtown Wooster and the surrounding area.
Walks through a rose garden, an arboretum, or a nature preserve are easily accessible by car. Amish Country is a twenty-minute drive and is beautiful no matter what the season. Dining choices are varied, casual to elegant; Your Innkeepers maintain current menus from several locally owned restaurants. Lovers of fine food, Susie and Steve will be happy to assist you in making a selection that will suit your particular needs.
Our aim is to make your stay as pleasant as we possibly can. Curl up by the wood-burning fireplace when it is cool outside. As weather permits, relax on the porch swing or lounge on our deck overlooking the tree-lined backyard.
In the morning, partake of a leisurely full breakfast served in the cheerfully appointed great room or in our small private dining area.
Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Susie & Steve Ellis for sharing their own secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
We have been hosting guests at the Mirabelle for 10 years. We make an effort to create an atmosphere that fosters relaxation and camaraderie. Many friendships have been forged at our breakfast table.
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?
We are proud to say that many people compliment us on the cleanliness of our B&B and on our attention to details.
The best interior designer in our area has worked with us to create a warm welcoming atmosphere. In the mix are many sentimental pieces. You will see furniture that once belonged to a beloved aunt; pieces of artwork by family and friends, including a photo of a painting that once hung in the Pentagon; and there are several gifts from guests who live around the world. We enjoy sharing the history of these items with those who express an interest.
If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?
During the summer, people travel to Wooster from throughout the country to view performances of the Ohio Light Opera. Many have been our guests for ten years.
What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
We have several guests who came to Wooster for very specific reasons. Once circumstances changed, we thought we would not see them again. We find these goodbyes to be one of the hardest parts of owning a Bed & Breakfast. However, to our great pleasure, some of those guests have made many return visits. We could not possibly ask for a better compliment.
What’s the best kept secret about the area?
Many people are pleasantly surprised to find a vibrant downtown with an array of galleries, shopping and excellent dining options.
If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?
Not to be missed is the Pine Tree Barn: Susie's favorite place for lunch; a fabulous furniture store; gift shop; and boutique. Definitely try their signature lemon muffins.
A visit to Lehman's Hardware will provide something of interest for every member of the family.
A trip through the heart of Amish Country is always fun. Stop at Heinis Cheese Chalet where you can sample over 35 varieties of cheese made on the premises, and that is just the beginning.
Mohican State Forest is about a thirty minute drive away. There you will find beautiful vistas; hiking trails (easy to difficult); and you could even climb to the top of one of the last fire towers in Ohio.
Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?
The beautifully landscaped College of Wooster Campus is a short stroll away. For a more vigorous workout continue another 1.3 miles downhill to the heart of Downtown Wooster.
You just might want to stop at the local brewery, to quench your thirst, before hiking back up Beall Avenue.
What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?
We are fortunate to have many good restaurants in our area and are happy to make recommendations that will suit your tastes and needs.

How many rooms does your inn have?

Do you accept pets?
There is a wonderful new pet hotel just a three minute drive away from our B&B. If you need a little pet therapy, there is a very friendly black cat, named Nitwit aka "It's Not Our Cat", who lives next door. She visits almost daily and is usually willing to accept a little attention.
