Situated on a hilltop site in the historic Gaslight District of Clifton, the Gaslight B & B offers plush hospitality with quick access to the University of Cincinnati and downtown Cincinnati areas. This elegant 4 story home welcomes you with waving willow branches and a soft, bubbling waterfall, giving you feelings of leisure and coziness. These exterior delights are only a preview of the luxury and hospitality to come. Built in 1909, the house suffered extensive damage in a terrible fire on New Year's Eve 1998. Lovingly restored by owners Scott and Maria Crawford, the house offers all of the modern conveniences a busy traveler needs, yet retains the charm of the original stained glass windows and hardwood floors throughout. The original house boasted an in-law suite at the front second floor of the house. In the renovation, the "in-law" entrance was preserved for use as a separate entrance for guests. We hope you arrive as guests, but leave as friends.

This B&B was a 2020 sweet surprise! Of course, our original vacation plans had to change due to covid. But we were led to this beautiful place instead. Each morning we woke up to mouth watering aromas and were greeted with kindness and a deliciously satisfying breakfast. The secluded 4th floor bedroom was perfect for us. The house is very clean quiet and comfortable. It is perfectly decorated with beautiful and unique pieces of ark and furniture... many spots to curl up with a book and look out the window. It has a home away from home feeling.
We also walked around the neighborhood and explored the area each day, discovering many unique homes and their history.
There is so much to do in this city! Their place has easy access to the interstate, so we visited the Ark Encounter for a day in Kentucky and came right back to the B&B.
Maria is a lovely and gracious host. She and Scott know all about the area. They are fun, informative and so sweet!! We will come all the way from Florida just to see them again! And to have some of her delicious cookin'.

I stopped off here without expecting much from the pictures but was blown away by the place In person. So much attention to detail went into this amazing bed and breakfast. Maria was so hospitable, she even gave us a better room on the very top floor as it was free. The breakfast was amazing and Maria was lots of fun to talk too. Really nice to meet a done to earth person in these crazy times. Would highly recommend this place. Everything was better than expected.

I stayed two nights; the room was charming, comfortable, and very clean. The location was well within walking distance of restaurants and shops, while still being very residential. Maria, the owner, could not have been more attentive or hospitable. Breakfast both mornings was not only excellent, but care was taken to accommodate my vegetarian diet. Maria makes each guest feel like family. I would highly recommend a stay at Gaslight!

I have stayed at this bed and breakfast many times over the past 14 years. I always find the rooms to be beautiful and impeccably clean. I consider Maria, the owner and hostess, to be my friend. She is extremely loving and kind and will do anything to make your visit extra special. Breakfasts are delicious and the various common areas throughout the house are the perfect place to relax or chat. We will be returning!!!

We stayed on the top floor in the Swiss Family Robison room because it had a private, en-suite bath. View is nice and it’s quiet since on the top floor! We had concert tickets at the wonderful Ludlow Garage venue where we were able to make the quick walk to dinner and the concert venue in the Gaslight Village. Maria, the innkeeper and owner, was fun, full of energy, and makes an awesome breakfast. We were comfortable.

My wife and I stayed here while attending our grandson's graduation from nearby University of Cincinnati. Maria was a delightful hostess, very friendly and accommodating. Our room, on the top floor, was compact but comfortable, and the amenities, including a very nice bathroom, were top-notch. The best part was breakfast: Dutch baby pancakes, turkey sausage, fresh fruit, juice and excellent coffee, all fresh and presented beautifully. We are already planning when we can make a return trip to Cincinnati, just so we can stay here.

My husband and I stayed in the 4th floor room. It was absolutely beautiful as was the entire home. The owner greeted us at check-in to show us our room and she made our breakfast in the morning which was very tasty! We very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely be going back.

This was just a terrific place. The Gaslight is owed and run by Scot and Maria Crawford. We came to Cincinnati to do a bike ride back to Cleveland.
Scott made room in the garage for our e-bikes so we wouldn't have to carry these heavy bikes up the many stairs to our rooms. Maria made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Each area had many snacks and candies available. The. refrigerator was full with pop and other drinks available to us at no extra charge. The breakfast was great. Maria kept us entertained with stories of her and Scott's colorful life with many interesting adventures. For example, as one of their many entrepreneurial projects was to buy the Ludlow Garage which has a history as a music venue that hosted many of the famous acts of the 1970's including the Allman Brothers. Scott spent many hours talking to Gregg Allman's agent and to Gregg Allman himself to try to arrange Gregg to end his career at the Ludlow Garage where his career started. He has an album called Live at Ludlow Garage recorded in 1970.
This B&B is close to many places to eat. and the area nearby is quaint and charming. I highly recommend this B&B when visiting Cincinnati.

Very artistic setting, lots to look at as you stroll through. Scott & Maria have truly worked to restore their home with furniture, statues, artistic pieces that are themed and intriguing. A most delightful experience.

My husband and I stayed for our 5 year wedding anniversary. The place is beautiful and very clean. Maria is the nicest person I ever met, very hospitable. Her breakfasts were absolutely delicious. The rates are affordable and the stay is within walking distance to the zoo. I would recommend Gaslight Bed and Breakfast to anyone.
