The house itself is elegant and understated, comfortable, and - best of all - blissfully un-cluttered with b&b tschotskes in every corner - i.e. there is actually room on counters to put things, and little danger of knocking over trinkets. Nice art and furniture. I was in the Buckeye Room, separated a bit from the house with its own entrance,... More

My husband, my son, and I stayed in the Buckeye Room for one night while visiting Oberlin, and had a very good experience. The room was snug for three, with an air mattress on the floor, but nothing we couldn't work with or didn't expect. The bathroom was well furnished and seemed quite new; like the rest of the room,...

The Buckeye and Frog featured a delectable breakfast, beautiful neighborhood and gracious hosts. We had an excellent stay within easy walking distance of downtown Oberlin and the college. I would highly recommend it!

We had a terrific stay earlier this week during a visit to Oberlin. Janet and Domique were wonderful hosts and their dog Sonny was the best! Every B&B should have a dog that well-behaved. Our room was wonderful, especially the shower. But the best part of it was the most delicious breakfast I've ever had at a B&B, including an... More

I spent a night at the Buckeye and the Frog while my daughter was visiting Oberlin. The house is large and the Janet was very accommodating. Breakfast was delicious. The furnishings are lovely and the room was very quiet.Janet loaned me an umbrella for the morning rain. Even their dog is friendly.

We like to stop in college towns when we travel because there are usually interesting places to stay and things to see. On a recent trip from NJ to Chicago we decided that Oberlin would be a good place to stop overnight and a quick search found The Buckeye and the Frog. Must say, I was hooked right away by... More

We were delighted to spend a weekend with our French AFS daughter at this beautifully appointed and lovingly restored Inn, just a block from the Conservatory. With gorgeously updated bathrooms, sumptuous beds, delicious and bountiful breakfasts (homemade granola, poached pears and quiche made from freshly laid eggs!) and warm hospitality from Dominique and Janet, we will definitely be back again!...

We've been visiting Oberlin for 4 years and loved this B and B! The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom spotless and charming. Janet and Dominique were so gracious, warm and hospitable. The breakfasts were really tasty. The location can't be beat. This is a true find!

My teenager and I had a lovely stay here while on a college visit to Oberlin. You can park your car and visit "downtown" and the campus without having to get back in the car. Our room was spacious with an enveloping rocking arm chair. I appreciated the new bath. My teen appreciated the breakfast and the dog!

I stayed for one night while visiting my daughter for her birthday. I had a fairly full itinerary with her. I was able to leave my car in their driveway/lot and easily walk everywhere I needed to be. I knew that I would not enjoy the full breakfast but had a bit of the lovely offering prior to meeting my... More
