Very clean, comfortable accommodations. Hosts live off site, but are hard working folks who come in every morning and prepare fresh fruit, scones and various egg dishes. Sincerely the best breakfast in Defiance! Linens, beds and decor were lovely. Sound machines in each room for quiet nights rest. Very kind to children, antique toys to play with, clean floors and...

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.

Breakfast was perfect, and it was a bonus to meet little Elliot in the...

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,...

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...
