Welcome to Black Squirrel Bed & Breakfast

Thank you for taking the time to check out our website. We are a small husband and wife owned, true to definition, Bed and Breakfast.

We take great pride in what we have worked for years to create and would love the opportunity to share it with you.

We do not use a reservation service, each of your calls is answered or returned by one of us and each email is responded to personally. We strive to give truthful and useful answers to all questions. We can provide maps, guidebooks, band schedules and information on all island events and attractions just for the asking. Menus from all the island restaurants are also provided in the community room so you can decide what suits your needs in advance.

Join us in meeting fellow guests at the breakfast table each morning. Often you will find you have more in common than you thought. We find we are always discovering just what a small world we share. Frequently long lasting friendships are made enjoying a beverage at the covered Tiki-Bar or sitting around the fire-pit sharing stories from the day. Our large patio and grill area provides plenty of space for cooking as well as enjoying the tranquility of the Koi pond with its water features. We have found some guests meet for the first time at the Black Squirrel and return time and time again as friends.

We hope you join us in 2024. Feel free to give us a call at 419-285-7181 or look us up on your phone's search engine and just press the call button. Send us a message here. Also please like us on
FACEBOOK to keep up with all the fun that's going on here on South Bass Island.
