“Beautiful home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing two nights here with Bill. Our reason for being in the area was quite stressful and coming back to the house gave us a sense of peace and quiet. Bill is a great host to spend time talking with and we enjoyed his company. We had the Governors Room in this incredible building which has been lovingly restored. I have never slept in a bed which required steps to get in...it was so comfortable. The whole place was spotlessly clean and well equipped. We would have liked the ability to obtain/make a drink in the evening but small niggle only!

The first words out of my mouth were... I'll never stay in a hotel in Chillicothe again. We were running a little late for the check-in. Mr Hirsch was very understanding.
The House is BEATUIFUL. Mr Hirsch has collected many beautiful antiques. We were in town for a special music concert. The House is very near to downtown. A very easy walk to everywhere downtown.
The rooms are exceptional. The bed was ... zzzzzzzzzzz....... perfect.
The water pressure in the shower is awesome.
We weren't sure that there were any other guests until morning at breakfast.
Oh, yeah... breakfast. That was the highlight of our day.
Considering the beautiful setting, great stories from Mr Bill Hirsch and great breakfast after a wonderful, restful night.... something the hotels do NOT offer.
The cost was the same as the normal hotel chain.
STAY AT ATWOOD HOUSE!!!

We were in town for the show "Tecumseh" and booked this bed and breakfast because the reviews were great. I agree. The location was excellent. The host was friendly. The breakfast was superb. We had a friendly group of people all eating at the same time. Room were nicely decorated. We had a smaller room but it had plenty of room. We had a negative experience at another bed and breakfast so we weren't sure we would like this. As we pulled away my husband said he would recommend the Atwood House to everyone visiting Chillicothe.

Room Tip: A nice, quiet getaway.

We spent 2 nights at the Atwood. We went primarily in order to attend the outdoor drama about Tecumseh. However, we found we liked Chillicothe and enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. Hocking Hills was easy access from the B&B.
The Atwood is so lovely. Very tastefully furnished. We had to Governor's room, and we liked out room. We liked our host, Bill, who prepares wonderful breakfasts and who himself has a charm he shares easily. We hope to go back again next year.

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.
