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.

We stayed here in March when visiting our daughter at Oberlin. After a long drive from the east coast, it was great to be able to park our car and spend the next few days walking around the lovely tree-lined neighborhoods. The Buckeye and the Frog is within a block of the Oberlin campus, so is convenient but also quiet... More

Janet and Dominique are accommodating hosts and they welcome you into their home as if you've been friends for years. My daughter, who is a senior at the college, joined me for breakfast each morning of my stay and we visit and talk like we are in our dining room at our home in Massachusetts (only breakfast at the The...

Highly recommended if you must stay in Oberlin overnight. Close to the town and college, excellent breakfast, and friendly hosts. My son had an overnight visit at the college, and this bed & breakfast, and this was an excellent choice.

My son and I made a tour of midwest colleges last month, including a stop in Oberlin. Being from Seattle, I was unaccustomed to driving in snow, so I was unhappy when we had to travel from Madison, Wisconsin to Oberlin, Ohio just hours after a winter snow warning along our entire route was lifted. Between the snow and a... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Your house is beautiful, the food was great and we enjoyed your company. You offer a perfect balance of congeniality and privacy. Terrific location - walking distance to campus and everything in town. Hope to be back soon.

A beautifully restored and tastefully decorated Victorian brick house in the center of Oberlin, within walking distance of everything on campus and in town. Beautiful and spacious sitting and dining rooms, cozy and comfortable bedrooms, nicely remodeled bathrooms. Janet and Dominique are wonderful hosts and serve delicious, fresh, homemade breakfasts, including fresh-baked quiche and unique home-made soups. They also made... More
