“a biking weekend”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Excellent place to stay in Chillicothe. My husband and I were staying in Chillicothe overnight as part of a round trip Washington CH-Chillicothe. Bill, the owner/operator was a very hospitable, yet unobtrusive host. Some of my family members who live nearby were able to join us in Chiilicothe for dinner and we were able to return after dinner and relax by the fireside together as if in our own home. Breakfast was superb! The beds were superb! Unfortunately it was quite chilly while we were there so we did not have the opportunity to fully enjoy the gardens, they were spectatcular! Two thoughts to keep in mind; first, although the back is pretty private, securing bikes could be problematic but, in all fairness, Bill was quite up front about his before our arrival. Second, if arriving on Sunday (especially if your only mode of transportation is a bike) dinner options are very limited.

This is a fabulous little inn in a quiet part of historic Chillicothe, the last capital of the old "Northwest Territories," and first capital of Ohio. The owner operator, Bill, served as Richard Nixon's valet at Camp David when Bill was in the Navy. After leaving the service, Bill worked as a butler and chef in Houston and NYC. He is a fabulous host and excellent cook. We stayed in the President's Room, which has one of the most comfortable, four poster beds. We were bringing our daughter back from Durham NC to Chicago for the summer; and, we picked this spot because it is exactly halfway between the 2 cities. This will definitely be our way station on future such trips.

Room Tip: Ask for the President's Room if it is available. By far the finest among excellent choices

I was asked what hotel did I want when I had business in Chillicothe. I opted for the Atwood House. When I have to return it's the only place I'll stay. As a musician I've stayed all over the world. This place is right at the top. The breakfast is just wonderful served in a garden atmosphere. It didn't hurt that Bill, the owner, was Richard Nixon's steward. Sweet cream on fresh fruit to start the day. Come on. Goat cheese omelette, French toast with local syrup. Yes sir. Sorry about this now after breakfast talk but...it is a review...

There is even expensive, really nice TP in the bathroom. That's the out of ordinary stuff I look for in a B and B or hotel. Bill, the owner, makes the stay special.

Beautifully decorated with a serene atmosphere and fabulous breakfasts! We have stayed in many B & Bs over the years, but the Atwood House rises to the top of our list of favorites. Bill is a wonderful host and superb cook. We stayed in the Governor's Room and loved the private porch and luxurious bed with it's feather topper, feather comforter, and fine linen. The lovely garden at the rear of the house is a beautiful place to relax with a book or a drink.
We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Governor's Room is quiet and has a wonderful private porch.

My husband and I took a weekend getaway here in April 2011. The owner was very kind and rather quiet. He was a great help for finding restaurants for dinner and entertainment. It was very quiet...only one other couple there. The bed in our room was fabulous! It was the highest bed I have ever seen. The decor was not my type (Classic Revival), but it was done nicely. There was a large selection of reading material in the room. The breakfast was delicious! One of my favorite things about B and B's is getting to know the owner, but he seemed very busy and did not have time to just sit and chat. Everyting we needed was within walking distance. I would stay here again if we were to ever visit Chillicothe again.

Forego the Comfort Inn and chain hotels in the area and escape to this stunning B&B! Bill has impeccable attention to detail and runs a beautiful (and spotless) home. No dusty knickknacks or weird stuffed animals here! The President's Room has the most amazing fluffy-cloud-of-a-bed. There are 12 foot ceilings in every room...a lush garden and cozy spots for just lounging! You'll feel like a VIP at breakfast- fine china, a well-appointed dining room, fabulous food! All the other guests were repeat visitors-which really says it all. My husband and I enjoyed walking from the Atwood House around town- especially dinner Friday night at the Old Canal Smokehouse. Amazing smoked salmon! It’s really too bad Chillicothe is such a haul from Charlotte or we would make more frequent trips just to stay here and feel pampered!

Our two nights at The Atwood House, hosted by Bill Hirsch, couldn't have been better! We stayed in the Presidential Room, and the memorabilia from his days with Nixon are amazing. We felt that he treated us as honored guests rather than someone just renting a room from him.
Unusual in an old restored home, the bathroom was excellent. Lighting was ample, the room was spacious, and the luxurious towels, some monogrammed, were wonderful. The bedroom itself was roomy and included a television, telephone, and wifi that was very easy to access. There was a fireplace as well as two upholstered chairs, two ladder-backed chairs, chest of drawers, tables, and lamps.
The food was amazing! Each morning was different but delicious. As we finished our meal each day, Bill came with his cup of coffee and chatted for a while, answering our questions and telling interesting stories about his past life as a butler to the rich and sometimes famous. He was a fount of knowledge about the area, directing us to unique shops nearby as well as historical places of interest.
We will certainly return to this excellent B & B and recommend it to others.
