Dianne and Paul go way out of their way to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. The facility is very well maintained, the grounds are immaculate, and the small town atmosphere is refreshing. It is pricey but worth every penny.

I can add very little to the reviews that have been previously written. The Elliott Rose Guest House is an absolute gem! Wonderful location in downtown Defiance that is within walking distance of all the restaurants & shops downtown, yet far enough from the business district to seem quiet and quaint. The home is absolutely gorgeous. The rooms and baths... More

Our visit to the Elliot Rose was just that for us. Paul and Diana were more than great hosts, they made you feel like family. From the beautiful furnishings, elegant decor, great linens, to the comfy bed and great breakfasts, they are there to please. Accommodating to every need, we had the most relaxing time. They are great cooks, especially... More

My parents scheduled a weekend getaway to visit the Lilac Festival and chose The Elliot Rose Guesthouse for lodging. I called ahead to surprise my parents with a little in-room surprise snack. Diana answered the phone and within minutes of talking with her, I could tell that customer service was a priority at the house. To say "lodging" and "customer... More

When we first decided to stay here we saw that all the reviews were 5 stars. I didn't really believe it since even the best place can have a hiccup or two (or even just a grumpy visitor that cannot be pleased). Now that we have stayed there, we get it. Instead of going into details, I will just leave... More

We stayed at Elliot Rose while visiting friends this weekend. The guesthouse far exceeded our expectations, as did the value of our stay. Diana and Paul were so welcoming, hospitable and kind. Everything was exceptionally clean and comfortable - with extra touches that made our stay peaceful and rejuvenating. Breakfast was delicious and the company and conversation fruitful and fulfilling.... More

4 of us stayed there this past weekend(Nov 8-11) as we were in town for a wedding. Amazing, best experience ever!! The hosts, Diana and Paul, cannot do enough for the guests. Homemade scones for breakfast, different day, different flavor. Best fruit cups I have eaten in a very long time and was a specialty this week as the fruit... More

I agree with all the other reviewers......The Elliot Rose Guesthouse is incredible. Dianna and Paul are 2 of the nicest people I have ever met and will always hold a special place in my heart.
