We had a great and relaxing time! Drinks and appetizers when we arrived, followed by massages, dinner delivered and served which was delicious. In the morning breakfast was served also delicious then off to a yoga class. I give this place 6 stars...gorgeous!'

The Second Story was the perfect venue to host my bridal shower and bachelorette party!! The large open space accomodated all of my guests. Every room was fully stocked with everything we might need during our stay. The staff was very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. I hope to return soon!

We used the Second Story for a place to stay the night before my wedding. All of my bridesmaids were from out of town so having somewhere for everyone to stay that had a bed was wonderful! The space was exactly what we needed for that evening as well as the morning of my wedding! We had somewhere to have breakfast as well as for everyone to get ready and there was no stress at all! Thank you so much Sylvia for this experience!

We cant say enough good about The Second Story. 1st we had my daughters Bridal Shower that was so relaxing & beautiful couldn't of asked for a more perfect place! From that incredible experience we decided to have the Bachelorette Party which we had so much space to sleep 12 of us that night! Its hard to believe that you are in such a small town with such a gorgeous place to stay! We had everything you can think of to make our special moments even more special! I will recommend The Second Story for years to come & Im sure we will find a reason to come back! LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!

We had the second story and all of its lovely http://www.accommodations for the whole weekend of our son's wedding. We had ample room to mix and mingle at the rehearsal dinner for over 40 people Friday night. The young people enjoyed the large space and activities while they reunited for the festivities.
The bride and her attendants stayed Friday night so the could embark on the many preparations when Saturday came. There was a hairdresser on sight first thing to help them get ready while they enjoyed breakfast and various comforts. They were able to have plenty of space to get dressed and ready for the late afternoon nuptials.
The bride and groom returned to the Second story for their first night together and gave rave reviews of all the wonderful amenities available to them...lovely flowers breakfast and chocolate,
Sylvia was so accommodating and made several suggestions we had never thought of. if we have the opportunity again, we would certainly have a gathering of this size there again.

I cannot say enough about this amazing place! Having grown up in Defiance,I never expected to find a place that reminded me of a high end loft found in Manhattan or Boston or other big city. Not only is the Second Story absolutely gorgeous and perfectly designed, decorated and functional, it was beyond affordable. We rented the entire place for the whole weekend and held my bridal shower which impressed everyone!
The venue itself is worth every penny, but the service you get is worth so much more. The owner is beyond wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed for the weekend and the shower and clearly takes pride in providing such a unique and outstanding place/experience you really won't find anywhere else in the area.
I can't wait to come back and recommend The Second Story to absolutely everyone!
