We booked this because I was looking for a bed and breakfast to stay for a wedding we were attending in Beaver Creek. My husband and I stayed in the Smallwood Suite and our friend stayed in the Dayton Suite and thus we had the whole house to ourselves (there are only 2 Suites). Each suite has a roomy bedroom...

What a wonderful way to spend a Tuesday morning!!! Love the atmosphere and food!!! Lovely!!! We enjoyed the tour and the conversation. Even through the fog we could see the view from the upstairs windows. It is a definite must-see when you come to Worthington!!!

The home is amazing, but the service could be better. The door was locked and nobody was there when we arrived. The manager told us to call the cell phone but forgot to send us the number in advance. The breakfast was not that great considering the price. Mostly packaged food from the HiVee. There is no one with you... More

Right when we walked in the door, we could feel the love bursting inside this house. First impressions were "Wow! This place is SO beautiful." Cathy, the event planner, greeted us. We got to know each other shortly, and she offered a full tour. We accepted, and she taught us so much about this house. We stayed one night in... More

Wow, what a neat place. My daughter reserved the home from 4pm to 10pm for a birthday gathering. She made a delicious meal for 12 of us. We got the tour and had a great time with house staff Colleen and Cathy. After the meal my daughter reserved the Dayton Suite for our over night stay. The suite is so... More

They have recently completed a $2M renovation and they have done a tremendous job. I recently stayed there and the hosts were most accommodating. Just a magical night in a magical place. It will take you back in time and will be a night worth remembering.

My wife and I spent a night at the Historic Dayton House B&B, and our only regret was that we couldn’t spend more nights there. Colleen greeted us warmly and gave us a tour of the fully restored and beautifully furnished home originally built by department store magnate George D. Dayton. The porch was a cool and restful spot, surrounded... More

This historic property is extremely well-kept and nicely furnished. The decor and finishes are authentic and interesting, and it has a great history and story to tell. The hospitality and extra touches provided by the staff were wonderful. We especially enjoyed home baked cookies and tea in our room after a long drive. We enjoyed two nights in a suite... More

Imagine getting a tour of a stately, completely-restored mansion of a 19th century millionaire... ...and then being given keys to one of the two upstairs suites for the night. I reserved a suite in the Historic Dayton House for the last day of an upper plains vacation, because Worthington was a convenient stopping point. I didn't know what to expect... More

The house is very cool, lots of antiques, and tastefully decorated, there are only 2 rooms and the other was vacant so my Wife and I had the house to ourselves. It is stocked with complimentary drinks, snacks, and continental breakfast items. The lady who checked us in, gave us a tour of the house and made us feel very... More
