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,... More

Its really hard to add to all the fine reviews here. They are all on the mark. My wife and I were spending the weekend in Defiance and stayed here for two nights. We always try and stay in B&Bs when we travel and have done so in the U.S., Latin America and Europe. The Elliot Rose ranks right at... More

Our "W " room is wonderful, so wonderful, we went back a second time and have booked a third. The fenced yard, landscaping and all the interior rooms - sun porch, living room, library have delightful decorating and lots of natural light. Our kitchen on the second floor comes is handy too. Of course the dining room, with Diane and... More

I stayed here cause it was close to the rescue center I was visiting. The house was so beautiful and the owners were so friendly. This was my 1st B&B experience and it will not be my last time visiting here. The food was awesome too. Katie from PA

We spent a delightful three day weekend at the Elliot Rose guesthouse in Defiance, Ohio. At first I was not sure about booking it because the rooms did not have en suite bathrooms, but it worked out great. There are two rooms on the first floor - one is a small room she doesn't usually offer, but it worked out... More

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
