Our home, known as the Hall Sisters House, is in the historic, tree-lined neighborhood next to the Oberlin College campus--just two blocks from the Conservatory.

The charming, light-filled guest suite has a private bathroom added in 2015. A wet bar, refrigerator, and microwave, plus coffee and tea makers, will allow you to prepare simple snacks and breakfasts. We supply your choice of milk (dairy, almond, soy), yogurt, granola, soups, beer, wine, and soft drinks.

The space
Your stay with us will be quiet and restful: the room overlooks our back garden and pond and is furnished with black-out blinds.

Note: The Queen size bed is suitable for one person or for two who can share the bed.

Guests comment on the calm and peaceful feeling in the house and in this room, which is on the second floor overlooking the back garden and pond.

You will be cozy and warm in the winter with the adjustable hot water radiator--and very comfortable in the summer with the quiet Unico state-of-the-art central air conditioning/dehumidifier.

A few details: The walls were re-plastered by a master craftsman. The sheets are luxurious. The curtains were made from hand loomed and block printed sari fabric imported from Orissa, India. For those who like to minimize light when it is time to sleep, there are also black out shades.

Guest access
We enjoy our privacy and will respect your private space. But we are happy to help--just text or call us. Guests use the side entrance, from the driveway, and its stairway, which does not go into the main part of the house.

Upon request, you are welcome to use the washer and dryer in the basement, as well as an iron and ironing board.

Just let us know if you need something or we can be of help!

Other things to note
When you arrive, please telephone Dyane at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). You can pull into the driveway just behind the garage and unload your luggage next to the side door (the entrance we use for the guest room).

We supply luggage stands for you, as well as hangars on hooks behind the door to the room.

You will feel safe and comfortable in the heart of Oberlin's historic neighborhood adjacent to the Oberlin College campus.

This beautifully preserved home was built in 1901 by Julia Brainerd Hall, through the financial generosity of her younger brother, Charles Martin Hall. She lived here with her two other unmarried sisters. Julia was a chemistry major at Oberlin, and her younger brother followed in her footsteps. She participated in his discovery of the method to make aluminum commercially. When his patent rights were challenged, her excellent laboratory notes and depositions were crucial to his prevailing in a lawsuit contesting the primacy of discovery. She is considered by some to be a co-discoverer. Julia and Charles remained correspondents, and she advised him on many matters. After his death, one of her sisters married and moved to Rochester. She and the remaining unmarried sister moved there, as well. The house was then occupied by their oldest brother, a minister, and his family.

We are only the fourth owners of this 115-year-old home!

Now in my early seventies, I spent most of my adult life in the San Francisco area, beginning with graduate school at Berkeley. Later my husband and I built a Japanese country house in a redwood forest overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Now, my husband, Jacques Rutzky, is the Buddhist Affiliate at Oberlin College. I am a Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice. We appreciate a beautiful, serene, harmonious environment. We have traveled widely, and we enjoy meeting people from other cultures.
