Our group of ladies have met at Elliot Rose Guesthouse for the last four winters for our annual retreat and we are fortunate enough to book the entire home for two lovely days. The atmosphere is so relaxing and low key after a hectic holiday season. One of the best spots is in the library with the fireplace, my personal favorite! Each room is impeccable and extremely clean and welcoming. We would highly recommend this location for either a couple or multiple families!
We rented the entire home for an overnight sisters and cousins get-together. The hosts were so gracious, and the home is just lovely and very welcoming! The breakfast was lovely, and the scones were absolutely delicious! Becky, Eddie & Kathy
Rented entire home for the weekend, GREAT price for entire home, had numerous classmates stay at the home with us, which allowed us to visit, relax, have our privacy in our own beautiful rooms when needed. Everything detail is thought of and ready for you when you arrive. Wonderful host and hostess, BREAKFAST WAS A GREAT way to start the day; fresh ingredients, homemade honey cake and scones, frittata and quiches, always something a bit different each morning! Of all of the B&B's I've stayed at this is by far my FAVORITE one!! DEFINATELY will be back with my entire family next time!!! Loved it!!! Bev & Randy Class of 74
Great outdoor patio. Full service kitchen that we were welcome to enjoy. Had fresh ground coffee each morning with outstanding healthy breakfast and fabulous scones! Enjoyed clean, comfortable rooms with updated bathroom facilities. Hosts were so accommodating. Visitors from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
My husband and I, along with my 2 daughters, their spouses and children, (ages 8 mos., 2, 4 and 5 yrs.) spent 5 wonderful nights at the Elliot Rose Guest House in early June 2013. It was amazing! We rented the entire house and were completely wowed upon arrival and inspection. My daughters were thrilled to have the sound machines in each bedroom (for the youngsters it was a godsend), and Diana & Paul had set up the crib and toddler air mattress for our youngest grandchildren, complete with a soft animal in bed to greet the 2 yr. old. What nice touches! Everything about the house was just so nice - it was clean, spacious, lots of amenities, well equipped/stocked bathrooms, and both kitchens were neat and also well equipped. There were freshly pressed pillow cases, and lush towels and bathrobes. The decor was also very tastefully done and not crowded with chotzkies like some B&Bs can be. The backyard was also delightful, a great place to gather with other family members staying in the area and for the youngsters to catch fireflies. Great old tree, swing, deck with table and chairs. Very nice. And last but not least - the breakfasts were scrumptious! Those scones are to die for! (I want that recipe.) - They kept our coffee cups full and had juices, scones, fruits, egg dishes, cereals, milk, - all different items on different days - something for everyone. We just couldn't have been happier with our stay. Great hosts and a great house. We will definitely be staying again and cannot recommend it more highly. Thanks Diana & Paul for a wonderful home away from home. Peggy Mohr Christiansen, Fernandina Beach, FL
I have stayed at the ERGH on two separate occasions; a two night stay in November of 2012 and a three night stay in March of 2013. The rooms are inviting and clean making it easy to relax and unwind at the end of the day. However, the best part of the ERGH is at the beginning of each day - breakfast! Diana really goes above and beyond making delicious scones and egg dishes. Fresh fruit, yogurt, hot coffee, and an array of juices are also always on hand. If you'd like to see something special added to your breakfast menu all you have to do is ask - Diana and Paul put their guests' comfort at the top of their list of priorities. I would not hesitate to recommend the ERGH to anyone traveling to, or through, the Defiance area.
We stayed here in mid-February for a weekend. From the hospitality to the breakfast to the room, everything was all we could ask for. If we are ever in need of lodging in northwest Ohio again, we will definitely stay here again.
Diana and Paul are delightful hosts, they feel like family! Their b & b is exactly what I have needed for a long time when visiting relatives in my hometown. It outweighs the stay at a hotel by its hospitality and feeling like home, and not to mention the value! It is by far the cheapest yet best place to stay in Defiance. I would recommend a stay at the Elliot Rose Guesthouse to any of my friends or family. The details are all caringly thought out and perfectly executed. If something were to have gone wrong during our stay, I have no doubt Diana and Paul would have come to our rescue! A wonderful place for out of town visitors, and a place even a local could love for a get away weekend:) Laura and Ken A.
My husband & I stayed 9 nights and it truly felt like home-away-from-home without cooking, cleaning, etc.! We had full access to the guesthouse which made it very nice for us, since we were away from home for awhile . The house is beautiful, comfortable and meets all of your needs and exceeds your expectations. Diana & Paul are the perfect hostess & host! The breakfasts are great and the homemade scones are out of this world! Staying at the Elliot Rose Guesthouse beats staying in a hotel. We always stay at B&Bs and we rate this one as one of our BEST. My husband and I bonded with the Diana & Paul and made new friends.
"Mi Casa Es Tu Casa" is certainly the feel at Elliot Rose! We would give them 100 stars if they were available! As performers we stay in many places and we can say with all honesty that Elliot Rose Guesthouse provided for us all the comforts of home. We would highly recommend staying at Elliot Rose and if you're like us, you'd never want to leave! We will be back very soon! On behalf of the rest of the guys of the Mariachi, Thank you to Diana for the awesome hospitality! -José Ozuna Mariachi Monumental De México Chicago, IL
We had a beautiful stay at Elliot Rose. Every detail is carefully prepared by the owners who are devoted to making your stay as comfortable as it can be. Elliot Rose is more beautiful in person than the pictures on the website. We had a great time and we will definately stay there again. Cheri & Dan
We were fortunate enough to stay at the Elliot Rose Guesthouse the weekend we performed at the Lilac Festival in Defiance, OH. We've stayed in our share of hotels, motels and B and Bs. All we can say is WOW! The entire place was immaculate. The food (including the homemade scones and fudge) was simply delicious. And, the hosts were wonderful. Diana and Paul treated us like family and made us feel totally at home. When it comes to attention to detail...these two have truly set the bar. (Diana handpicks the best food ingredients, top quality linens and even did extensive research before she purchased the "tunable" white noise machines for each room for those guests who sleep a little better with a fan going). We will definitely be staying at the Elliot Rose Guesthouse every time we're anywhere near Defiance, OH. Dalia Garcia and Gary Scott (a.k.a. Garcia and Scott)
The Elliot Rose Guesthouse is a lovely little inn with a sophisticated but comfortable decor and a great attention to detail. The food was delicious and the inn keepers could not have been more accommodating and hospitable. We hope to be spending more time there in the future!
We met for a Cousin's reunion at this fabulous B & B. We never wanted to leave. Our needs and wants were all met. Breakfast was delish. Diana and Jen were so sweet and helpful and when we decided to avail ourselves of their spa connection we were amazed at the luxury of it all. The rooms are first rate and the kitchen availability was absolutely a plus. Hope to go back for our next reunion.
My cousins, sisters and I stayed at Elliot Rose for the weekend and couldn't have had a better time. Diana and Jen are gracious hostesses and have a beautiful guest house. The furnishings were so pretty. No detail was overlooked. We had fluffy white towels and robes, comfortable beds and lots of peace and quiet. We would definitely recommend and are already planning on coming back. Thanks for making our weekend awesome!
My best friend and I took a night away and visited the Elliot Rose Guesthouse and we couldn't have been more delighted!! Our stay was absolutely wonderful! Every little touch and amenity that you could think of was there and we had a relaxing and cozy night in the beautiful home The hosts were so incredibly kind and welcoming and Diana's scones were amazing!! The breakfast and tea in the morning was delicious and sitting down and eating with the owners was a real treat! The room we stayed in was beautiful and so comfy. We can't wait to visit again soon!!
