Janet and Dominique can not make your stay better because they do care so much that you feel you are at home with the highest possible service. Lovely people that made our stay unforgettable. Then, our morning running to the lake made our stay even better.

After a long drive, I arrived at the Buckeye and Frog and felt instantly at home. The Buckeye room was stylish and comfortable, breakfast was fresh and delicious, and Janet and Dominique were so friendly and welcoming. Not to mention that I was around the corner from my son's dorm and a few minutes' walk from the town. This will... More

After staying in a grungy chain hotel in Elyria the first time we brought our daughter to Oberlin, we were delighted to discover The Buckeye and the Frog. It's the perfect launching pad for parents of Oberlin students, about as close to the campus as you can get without literally being part of it. Janet and Dominique are warm and... More

We stayed in the Frog Room for a weekend in May when we visited our daughter at Oberlin. The location was perfect. The room was beautiful and comfortable and breakfast with freshly laid eggs was perfect. Janet and Dominique made us feel welcome. We hope there's a room available for our next trip to Oberlin!

The bedroom and bathroom were both impeccably clean and just lovely. The hosts Janet and Dominique are so accommodating, helpful and just wonderful. The breakfast was fantastic and extremely special. The location is absolutely perfect and walking... More

Janet and Dominique are warm and gracious hosts. We always enjoy our stay in their beautiful renovated Victorian home. The homemade European breakfast is simply delicious! Our daughter will be graduating in May and we are going to miss staying at this charming B&B in this special College town!

Comfortable, attractive, welcoming and all-around pleasant, and since we're from costly California, to us it was an incredible value. The location was ideal for meeting up with our Oberlin student daughter, with her dorm a couple of blocks away.

Dominique and Janet are the PERFECT hosts at this Perfect B and B, with the PERFECT homegrown backyard chicken breakfast. Our room was large, homey, well furnished and VERY comfortable. I should NOT say this, but if you can get a room DO NOT HESITATE! Grab it. You will NOT find a better B and B in Oberlin ... or... More

Wow - thank you so much!! Just a point of clarification: we don't serve our chickens for breakfast, only their eggs! :-) More

My daughter, her friend and I stayed at The Buckeye and the Frog while on an Ohio college tour. It was a fantastic place to stay partly because it is located just a block from campus, but also because the rooms were lovely, comfortable and the food was fantastic! We will definitely stay again!

A beautifully restored home and garden on a quiet street walking distance to campus and downtown. Breakfast is elegant with homemade bread, granola and aometimes French eggs. Janet and Dominique are relaxed and attentive. The art, use of local resources and attention to detail make this a unique place.
