This is a wonderful B and B in Defiance, Ohio. We were there to perform a concert, and our gracious hosts, Diana and Paul, took great care of us. This guesthouse has the charm of an older home, but is thoroughly updated with plenty of closet space, excellent climate control, and state of the art amenities in the bath. The...

Very clean, comfortable accommodations. Hosts live off site, but are hard working folks who come in every morning and prepare fresh fruit, scones and various egg dishes. Sincerely the best breakfast in Defiance! Linens, beds and decor were lovely. Sound machines in each room for quiet nights rest. Very kind to children, antique toys to play with, clean floors and...

Comfortable B&B with thoughtful, considerate hosts. Friendly to us and our dog. Homemade scones on arrival, drinks available ATC. Tasty, fresh homemade breakfast; Diana asked about food preferences and Paul kept the coffee coming. Beautiful bathroom (not en suite). Extra powder room makes sharing easier. Good advice on dinner.

This is a fabulous B&B! Historic, yet decorated with luxury touches and fabulous breakfast! Perfect location! Diana and Paul make us feel like this beautiful home is ours!! Our room has large natural light windows and beautiful hardwood floors, yet a modern bathroom with thick luxurious towels and linens! We have traveled globally and this gets a four star rating!

We stayed here for one night passing through just before Xmas. Paul and Diana are excellent hosts, very welcoming and gave us some good options for dinner - we ate at the golf club which was perfect for us. The guesthouse has a lovely homely feel.

Lovely, warm, welcoming atmosphere! The owners are the sweetest people and truly see to every detail for your comfort. The house is gorgeous, the food is delicious, and it's within easy walking distance of downtown Defiance: restaurants and shopping. We stumbled on Elliot Rose for a place to stopover between our home in Indiana and my brother's place in Detroit,...
