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

We truly enjoyed our stay. The location was fantastic, adjacent to the college and conservatory. We were able to easily walk to the conservatory for a tour and recitals. The home is beautifully restored and is comfortable. It was very clean. We loved that an extra twin bed was available to be brought into the room. The gardens were in... More

The Buckeye and the Frog, is without a doubt my favorite place to stay in Oberlin. It is beautifully restored, with some wonderful family history in the art and furniture. Our room was super comfortable, and a pleasure to be in. Big enough to be in and relax read, write, just great to come back to. Very comfortable bed with... More

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
