Berrodin Bed & Breakfast

Berrodin Bed & Breakfast

The Berrodin Bed and Breakfast is located five minutes from downtown Akron, Ohio. There are a total of three rooms available, each with its own unique name and theme. The most popular of these is the Anniebabe Room - Bedroom 2, which is the largest room offered to guests. All three rooms share a bathroom on the second floor. Each morning a free continental breakfast is served in the house’s dining room, featuring foods such as yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, and oatmeal. Those interested in nearby attractions can visit the Akron Art Museum, the Stan-Hywet Hall & Gardens, and the home of the late Dr. Bob, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Many guests staying at the inn are traveling along the Ohio to Erie Trail, a prominent bike trail that runs close to the property. Regardless of why people may be staying there, Louie, the owner, hopes that guests will feel “like family” during their stay.


Situated five minutes from downtown Akron is the Berrodin Bed and Breakfast. The building has a total of three rooms available for guests to reserve, each of which varies in size. All of the rooms also have unique names and styling associated with them. For example, the smallest room of the three, the Blueprint Room - Bedroom 1, displays blueprints of Berrodin’s Cafe, which was owned by relatives of Louie, the current owner of the bed and breakfast. The other two rooms, the Anniebabe Room - Bedroom 2 and the Big Louie Room - Bedroom 3, are larger by comparison and have desks that guests can utilize. All three bedrooms share a full bathroom located on the second floor. According to the property’s website, the Anniebabe Room is the most popular room among those who stay at the inn, which is attributed to the room being the largest offered at the establishment.

In addition to their rooms, other areas where guests may gather at the Berrodin Bed and Breakfast include the front porch, the living room, Ginnie Abell Dining Room, and the Roberta Aber Kitchen. A free continental breakfast is served to patrons each morning in the dining room. Louie mentions that some of the items served at breakfast include yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, five flavors of oatmeal, and granola bars, among others. The Ginnie Abell Dining Room is also the location of the bed and breakfast’s storefront, where guests can purchase a variety of t-shirts and other themed memorabilia about the property and some of the surrounding attractions.

Many guests who stay at the property visit Cuyahoga Valley National Park, where guests can hike or bike on a number of trails as well as visit the Brecksville Nature Center, which gives additional information about the local flora and fauna. Many people also ride on the Ohio to Erie Trail, which passes near the bed and breakfast. Aside from outdoor activities, the property is located about five minutes from downtown Akron, where people can visit the Akron Art Museum, the Stan-Hywet Hall & Gardens, the Akron Zoo, and the Akron Civic Theatre, to name a few. One attraction that Louie makes a special note of is visiting Dr. Bob’s Home, the home of the late Dr. Bob who developed the Alcoholics Anonymous Association. Guests can schedule tours of the home to learn more about his life and attend a yearly event called Founder’s Day, which is held in his honor. People interested in trying some of the different restaurants in the Akron area are advised by Louie to visit Aladdin’s and the Mustard Seed Market and Grill.


Louie says that he hopes his guests will “feel like family” during their stay at the Berrodin Bed and Breakfast. He strives to create an atmosphere where they can relax by offering his services to them, such as making recommendations on things that they should do and offering drinks to his guests upon arrival. Many former patrons of the bed and breakfast mention that Louie was a “gracious host,” going on to say that “Louie is super knowledgeable about the area and its people. He had all sorts of interesting recommendations of things to do.” Other people comment on the cleanliness of the establishment, saying, “Our room was clean and there were chocolates and mints for us to enjoy.”

The busiest time of year for the business usually occurs around Founder’s Day, a holiday commemorating the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, Dr. Bob. With the recent addition of a bike cage to the property, Louie hopes to provide an added layer of protection for his guests' belongings. This especially attracts those who are riding along the Ohio to Erie Trail that may stay at the establishment for a night or two along their journey. Some important policies that people at the bed and breakfast are asked to follow during their stay include observing a quiet time from 11:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. and only smoking in the designated smoking area outside. Pets are allowed to accompany patrons while they stay at the establishment.


Louie, the owner of the Berrodin Bed and Breakfast, first established the business in 2017. He had previously lived in the area for 32 years, utilizing the property as a long-term rental for various people and groups. According to Louie, he entered the lodging industry to “fill a need” that he saw in the community. For the past five years, he has made a number of changes and renovations to the building, working to create a comfortable atmosphere for his patrons. Some of the largest projects he has completed include renovating the front porch, replacing the furniture in each of the rooms, and repainting sections of the house. Most recently, Louie had both an electric vehicle charging station installed in the driveway and a bike cage installed outside for those who may have bikes. As far as future plans that he has for the bed and breakfast, Louie hopes to double the size of the house.
