I had the opportunity to stay at the Elliot Rose Guest House recently. My stay was excellent on all counts - friendly and helpful staff, great accommodations. I would recommend the Guest House to anyone visiting Defiance, OH.

Comfortable B&B with thoughtful, considerate hosts. Friendly to us and our dog. Homemade scones on arrival, drinks available ATC. Tasty, fresh homemade breakfast; Diana asked about food preferences and Paul kept the coffee coming. Beautiful bathroom (not en suite). Extra powder room makes sharing easier. Good advice on dinner.

This is a fabulous B&B! Historic, yet decorated with luxury touches and fabulous breakfast! Perfect location! Diana and Paul make us feel like this beautiful home is ours!! Our room has large natural light windows and beautiful hardwood floors, yet a modern bathroom with thick luxurious towels and linens! We have traveled globally and this gets a four star rating!

Paul and Diana are excellent hosts, very welcoming and gave us some good options for dinner - we ate at the golf club which was perfect for us. The guesthouse has a lovely homely feel. Breakfast was perfect, and it was a bonus to meet little Elliot in the... More

Lovely, warm, welcoming atmosphere! The owners are the sweetest people and truly see to every detail for your comfort. The house is gorgeous, the food is delicious, and it's within easy walking distance of downtown Defiance: restaurants and shopping. We stumbled on Elliot Rose for a place to stopover between our home in Indiana and my brother's place in Detroit,... More

Its really hard to add to all the fine reviews here. They are all on the mark. My wife and I were spending the weekend in Defiance and stayed here for two nights. We always try and stay in B&Bs when we travel and have done so in the U.S., Latin America and Europe. The Elliot Rose ranks right at... More
