We stayed 4 nights in the Victoria Room. The room was very nice and the bed super comfortable. Bob is an excellent host. His style is laid back and while you feel totally welcome, he doesn't "loom" over his guests in the least. We've stayed at a lot of B & B's and sometimes a host can be a bit into your space but at the Rocking Horse, it is just peaceful and calm and completely open for you to do your thing unhindered.
Breakfast, while not the production you sometimes get, was more continental in style but not to worry - there is plenty to eat. There was homemade pumpkin nut bread, a quiche one day and an egg casserole the next day. Cereal, hard-boiled eggs, toast, coffee and o.j., bottled water and milk are always available 24/7 and there was a nice array of fresh fruit every day.
One thing about the Rocking Horse that really impressed me was Bob's generosity. The "little things mean a lot" like 2 daily newspapers, wine in the room, room well straightened and cleaned daily, snacks available 24/7 and you feel that it is there for you given with a generous spirit.
The house is spacious and has very nice antiques. The air condiioning is excellent and the sense of welcoming and positive energy gave us just the rejuvination we needed to enjoy each day of our vacation. The value is terrific with such reasonable pricing. We saved enough on our lodging expenses that we felt we could spend it on two gourmet meals at 4 star restaurants in Cleveland. (Lola Bistro in downtown Cleveland and Fire at Shaker Square in Shaker Heights, Cleveland, if you're interested. The dinner at Lola was one of the best meals I've ever had and we wouldn't have done that if we had to spend the money on lodging)
If you are gong to be staying in Ravenna, this is without question the place to stay. I recommend the Rocking Horse Inn very enthusiastically for comfort, value, ambiance, great mood, intangibles, just about everything and anything you would want in a Bed and Breakfast.
