Hello January

January Special at the Black Door


Did you know that January is named after the Latin word for ‘door’ (ianua)? According to Wikipedia January is the door that opens up the new year to new beginnings. So I guess that is why we have New Year’s resolutions! It is the time to resolve to change a behavior or accomplish a goal to improve the life that we are living. Actually these promises to self or someone else began in Roman times when people made promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named. So it seems that making resolutions is nothing new.

So what are some things people resolve to change or to start doing for the new year? Well resolutions could be to exercise more, eat less, drink more water, volunteer, complete a project, quit a bad habit, simplify, read more books, travel, schedule more getaways. Wait! Stop! We can help with that one! Do you need a getaway? Want a reduced rate? Need something for free? If you answered YES then keep reading.

What is Included in the Special

The January Special for 2018 at the 1830 Hallauer House Bed & Breakfast in Oberlin, Ohio will include the following:

  • 10% off booking total
  • Complimentary bottle of Ohio wine
  • Two tickets to the Oberlin Heritage Center
  • Free 3 course breakfast
  • No charge if cancellation needs to be made because of weather
  • Use of all of our unique amenities: hot tub, sauna, exercise equipment, ping pong and pool tables, and piano.
What else can you do?

So what do you think about that! But you may still be wondering what else is there is to do while you are here. It’s too cold in January for our pool so swimming outside is out of the question but the Splash Zone indoor pool is just 2 miles away. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are available at the Lorain County Metroparks and downhill skiing can be found at Mansfield SnowTrails and Boston Mills/Brandywine, both just a 45 minute drive.

After using  your tickets for the Heritage Center tour you can scoot over to the Oberlin Memorial Art Museum, one of the finest art museums in the country and FREE to the public. While downtown you can visit the unique small town shops and enjoy delicious food at the many fine restaurants. Want to see a first run movie? That is available in town at the Apollo Theatre where weekday movies are $4.00 and weekends will run you $6.00. And did I say the popcorn is delicious! Today they are showing Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle!

And if wine is more your thing then we have three wineries within a 15 minute drive: Matis Winery, Vermilion Valley Vineyard, and Paper Moon Winery.
