.....14 of us gathered at the Clifton House from all over Ohio and beyond. Lovely accommodations. It was comfortable and inviting as we sat around the table, in the living room, and in the chairs on the porch for long stretches of time while we talked and caught up. Nancy is a wonderful host and very helpful. Our group filled... More

Nop notch elegance, comfort, food, and friendly service! We loved the antique furniture, woodwork, stairway, and original artwork. Very interesting history from Nancy, who made us feel right at home. The chef's gourmet breakfast was excellent, and his food stories were fun. We loved it, and would recommend it to all!

We were lucky enough to stay in the cottage at The Clifton House this past weekend. It's a two story retreat that is separate from the main home and is very cozy and comfortable. The bedroom is upstairs which is a large room with an adorable window seat. The main home was beautiful with a stunning wrap around porch. We... More

We came up to visit our son, who is in the DAAP program at University of Cincinnati. The Clifton House is located very close to the school. It is walking distance to a neat community of shops and restaurants. It's very safe to walk at night. We stayed in the cottage. The cottage gives you room to spread out, but... More

My son attended UC for the past 5 years and it wasn't until his graduation that we discovered the Clifton House. He lives on the same street, otherwise we would not have known it was there. A delightful place to stay. UC hosts many visiting speakers here. Walking distance to university and restaurants (Ludlow). Quiet neighborhood of nice homes with... More

We had a beautiful visit to the Clifton House. Our host, Nancy, greeted us with wine and fresh baked brownies, offering advice about dinner and weekend activities. She was charming and welcoming. Breakfast was incredible, starting with fresh, hot coffee sitting outside of our room door when we woke. We journeyed down to the dining room, following incredible smells. A... More

I recently visited Cincinnati to visit a colleague at the University of Cincinnati. The University put me up in the Clifton House and it was comfortable, convenient, and generally an excellent experience. The morning breakfasts (during my stay, at least) were prepared by excellent chefs who are professors/instructors at a nearby culinary school. The Clifton House is on a peaceful... More

After 27 years together, we had an ideal wedding in mind. Nancy at The Clifton House provided just that. The hospitality and professionalism she demonstrated while still providing an atmosphere of familiarity and elegant comfort was impressive. The mansion, itself, is beautiful with a dominant oak staircase ascending from the large entry hall. Every room is spacious and well-appointed. Our... More

This classic home, built around the turn of the last century, has been lovingly restored. In the heart of Clifton and close to U of C, this would be an obvious choice of stay for business travel or couples. As much as we enjoyed the home the host Nancy is even more enjoyable. Hospitable and quick to please we felt... More

This beautiful house will be your home in Cincinnati. My room was lovely, and I enjoyed spending time in the equally lovely downstairs parlor and library, and on the majestic porch. The proprietor is the perfect combinatioon of friendly and unintrusive. Breakfasts were wonderful, and I especially appreciated the very short walk to Ludlow Avenue, with its restaurants, cafes, and... More
