What a lovely "find" in a quaint college town. We're hoping our daughter chooses Oberlin College so that we can stay with Janet and Dominique again and again. Their French heritage came through in the beautiful breakfast preparations during our 2-day stay and in the genuine hospitality they showed to us, during which they made their home "our home".

We stayed at the B&F while dropping off our child at Oberlin. The inn is near the south end of campus. Just a 5 min walk to downtown. The hosts are superb. We had a bit of a timing issue with the college and the hosts were very accommodating with our schedule. The breakfast was outstanding! Nice well appointed rooms... More

After almost five years of visits to Oberlin, I finally made my way to the Buckeye and the Frog. The inn and the hosts are absolutely wonderful. I'm only sorry that it took me so long to find my way to them. I look forward to returning often in the future.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Buckeye and the Frog. We will definitely stay here when we next return to Oberlin. The house is conveniently located just off of the college campus, and is a historic home in the town. Janet and Dominique have maintained the charm of the home and decorated it beautifully. Both of... More

This summer I spent three nights at The Buckeye and the Frog. It provided the perfect combination of tranquil privacy and attentive and interesting social interaction. The hosts could not have been more available and accommodating, and the guests I met at breakfast (delicious home made granola, fresh juice and fruit and cooked to order main course) were lovely people...

My daughter and I needed a rest stop on our journey to drop her off at her violin camp. I used Trip Advisor to look for accommodations in the Oberlin area. After reading everyone's comments about The Buckeye and the Frog, I was intrigued and made a reservation. We honestly never stay in B&B's. Perhaps it's because we have teenagers.... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night just before Easter weekend in April. We loved our room (the Frog) and the breakfast was phenomenal. Best of all was meeting Janet and Dominque (they both play acoustic guitars and sing duets, and we shared some musical interests), who are so friendly and helpful.

My son and I stayed at the Buckeye and the Frog from June 28 through July 3. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As other reviewers mentioned, the breakfasts are amazing - especially the baked french toast casserole! The B&B is very conveniently located near Oberlin College, and on a very quite street with easy access to downtown. Dominique and Janet... More

My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful, historic home while touring Oberlin College (ultra-conveniently located just one block away). We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations (we stayed in the Frog Room with the more French motif) and genuine hospitality we received from both Janet and Dominque - the owners who lovingly converted their landmarked home...

My family stayed here for 4 nights and were so impressed and pleased. They had never been in a Bed and Breakfast before, especially in the US (being from Amsterdam) and couldn't have been happier. My sister-in-law is a gourmet cook, she raved about the breakfasts, the hosts, the room, the location. I am so happy we chose the Buckeye... More
