Rob and Maria are fabulous down to earth people! The Black Squirrel is a wonderful place to unwind, rewind, or get wound if you choose to visit downtown PIB :) The accomodations are very clean and homey. The private pool and deck are an awesome place to kick back for a snooze or get to know some new friends who...

The place was not clean and the bed pillows were bad, old and lumpy. Breakfast was not good and coffe was served with sour milk. Also, we did not feel welcome. We loved Put in Bay and we will return, however, we will stay elsewhere.

We had a wonderful and relaxing time on the island...... The weather was terrible! High winds, rain, and heavy waves prevented many of the normal Put-in-Bay activities. Travel by golf cart was next to impossible. Our hosts Rob and Maria had even called to warn us that we may want to reschedule due to the the weather. Unfortunately, we left...

We will definitely be back. The room was great, the view was beautiful and the breakfast was to die for! Rob and Maria are wonderful hosts who make you feel very welcome. All my prior Put in Bay experiences were always right in the middle of the craziness that is downtown PIB. I didn't even feel like I was in...

My husband and I booked 2 nights at this wonderful B&B at the end of May to wind up an epic road trip. I selected the Black Squirrel primarily because it had its own pool and hot tub. We took the ferry over and grabbed the quick ride to the property. It was early for check in but Rob welcomed...

My fiancé and I originally booked a room at the Black Squirrel B&B as a vacation. We liked that if had it's own pool and hot tub and breakfast was included in the price. After the room was booked, we decided to get married on the island. It was our first visit to Put-In-Bay and Rob and Maria were such...

I booked a room at the Black Squirrel B&B based on the many amenities they offered like pool, hot tub, free bicycles, full breakfast and golf cart rental available at the Inn. Compared to other B&B's that we have stayed in, I can't say that it was luxurious or something all that special but it was clean with great hosts...

We come here every summer with a group of friends. We have stayed several places on the island but will now will never stray from the Black Squirrel!

My husband and I decided to come here after we dropped off the kids at camp. Sort of a spontaneous trip! This was our 1st visit to PIB and our 2nd stay at a B&B. We stayed in the Brown Squirrel room which has a King size bed, refrigerator and microwave. This room is on the 2nd floor with a...

“We had the red squirrel room which is on the lower level with a private entrance and deck.”

“Brown room, 2nd floor, king size comfy bed, huge bathroom. Views were great, you could see the waves crashing on shore from our room.”
MachelleWilliams, 16 Jun 2015 | Read review
“Red Squirrel (first floor) was spacious, but had a very small bathroom. We did not mind, since we had the little side deck to enjoy. We looked at some of the other rooms before leaving, and Green Squirrel on the 2nd floor looked spacious too. Some of the other rooms looked smaller, but had larger bathrooms. Just talk to the owner and be specific on what kind of room you want.”

“All the rooms are nice, our room "Flying Squirrel" was located second floor in the SW corner sheltered from the sun by large maple trees.”
