My son and I stayed here while he checked out Oberlin College and I explored the place my parents met as students in the early 40s. It was a lovely setting for our trip! The room was beautiful and clean off a front staircase. Breakfast was wonderful in a lovely dining room viewing the yard. An outside deck proved a relaxing place to read and sip the wine I got a short walk away in the main business district in Oberlin. As is Oberlin itself, this place is seeped in history. Throughout my wanderings, I felt I was simultaneously in the Oberlin of today, of the 1940s and of the 1800s. The Buckeye and The Frog was the perfect setting for this script! Our hosts were lovely--a pleasure to get to know. If my son goes to Oberlin, I will have many more visits with both the Buckeye and the Frog! ~Stacey

I'm so glad you enjoyed the historic aspects of our town and our home. It's one of the things we like best about Oberlin, too. Please come back!

My daughter and I were in Oberlin to visit the College, but we would come back for any reason at all. We had a beautiful room and a great breakfast, and the town is steps away. No problem with keys and certainly no problem with stairs. But the best thing of all was our hosts, who left us feeling that we'd stayed with a wonderful family or good friends--they looked after us but also left us to ourselves.

You can tell from their blog that the owners are still figuring out how to welcome guests and balance their own time and space. We were disapointed with the small stuffy "buckeye" room which is only accessible by the steep and twisting back stairs. The doorway to these stairs is often locked and we were not given a key. Lighting on the stairs is also an issue. The house seems like it must be lovely but we were relegated to out tiny room or the porch. The interior rooms highlighted in their blog are closed to guests. There is a demand for rooms in Oberlin. I wish the owners luck getting it worked out

Thanks for your prompt review of your stay with us. While we can't do much about our back stairs without restructuring our old home, we can certainly make it known to prospective guests that they will need to negotiate a stairway so that those who have trouble with stairs will be forewarned. In fact, none of our downstairs rooms is off limits to guests but they will be much more comfortable and presentable once our renovations are complete. The Buckeye and the Frog is a work-in-progress and your comments will be taken into account as we continue to improve.

I stayed at this family-run B&B for 2 nights this month. The host was very friendly and helpful, and my room was very clean. The hotel is only 5 minutes' walk to Oberlin College and the town centre. Breakfast was the tastiest I've ever had. I enjoyed every moment of my stay here and will definitely stay there again next time I visit Oberlin!
