We spent the night on 9 November there. The place could use a slight facelift on the outside. It's not bad, but it's not pristine either. The inside was everything you'd expect; beautifully furnished, large comfortable rooms and a very friendly hostess. The owner told me that they often feed bus loads of tourists during lunch. I can see how that could be annoying. However - it didn't happen while we were there so there was no issue. She does have cats, although I didn't see them. They have their own room upstairs. We booked the IRIS Suite with its adjoining room for my daughter. I was a nice having her close,yet in her own room. The bathroom was not shared, but you had to leave the room to get there. The breakfast was VERY good! What was really nice about this house is its location to downtown Cambridge. I wouldn't want to walk as the neighborhood changes quickly. Downtown was totally decked-out for Christmas. There was a continual light show at the town hall. Each show lasts a full hour. The shops are very quaint and one can easily spend a good part of the day walking down main street. Just a few places to eat: Bear's Den (great beef, hillbilly atmosphere. Good service. Not really cheap. For cheap eats is the Greek place on Main Street. It's called "Theo's"? No Greek food, but the menu was very extensive and there was a line to get it. Prices were outstanding. Overall impression: It's not Tare (in PA), but I would go back. Good value; great location. I would also recommend a stop at Roscoe Village while you're in the area. We were just going to stop for a few minutes and ended up spending hours there. Make sure you talk to the guys at the leather shop and don't miss the toy museum. The man working there is excited to show you his working toys and the shop brought back some great childhood memories for both my wife and me. (It's also free!) Plenty of good Pub-type bars with nice looking menus. (pls forgive my spelling!)

We had a great time, everything was better than We expected. Our wife's loved the town And Dickens village, and the court house light Show was amazing. We have already talked About returning. Thank you for a wonderful stay. By the way the price of our room was very reasonable.

We received our one-night stay as a gift from family, & were very excited to arrive there. We arrived at 3:30 & were greeted by the cheerful sister/housekeeper. She showed us to our room (the Lilac room), which was immaculate, showed us how to operate the fireplace, & then gave us a tour of the ENTIRE house :-) She told us to make ourselves at home, & help ourselves to anything in the house. The cats were contained to the 3rd floor, which is where the owner's quarters are. We did not see the owner before leaving on a walk to the central street in Cambridge (Wheeling Ave./Old US 40). We were surprised to learn that the downtown was all decorated in their annual Dickens theme. It was a nice treat, along with the music & light show at the county courthouse. We ate at Theo's on Wheeling, since we were on foot. It was a happening place with locals & tourists, alike! When we returned, we met the owner, who was friendly, & told us that she makes coffee around 6:30/7:00 and breakfast would be at 9:00. The room was cozy with the fireplace going; the linens, towels, & robes were wonderful, too! Hot coffee was ready, as stated. Breakfast was ready at 9:00 with a full table of 8 guests. It consisted of a small dish of yogurt, 2 English muffin halves with jam, bacon & sausage links, scrambled eggs, orange juice, & coffee. Quite ordinary fare served on beautiful china & silver. The housekeeper chatted with us at breakfast more than the owner. We would have liked to have learned more about the house, its previous owners, its renovations, its current owner, & local places of interest. All of these things were available in a convenient binder, but not promoted in conversation. This was not our first B&B experience.

Planned to stay for Friday and Saturday, but got ill on Friday night and had to leave early. Host was so gracious and caring about my not feeling well. Room was gorgeous, clean and exceptionally beautiful.. Will definitely be returning again. House was decorated beutifully and hosts were gracious and tended to all of our needs. Recommend it highly.

Two other families joined us for the weekend at the Colonel Taylor Inn Bed and Breakfast. The breakfast for two days was exceptional. We had so much that we did not need lunch. The Inn itself was magnificent.and very comfortable. We were treated like family and enjoyed our hosts as much as the whole weekend. I would recommend this B&B to anyone staying in or near Cambridge, Ohio
3,6 sur novembre 01, 2013
We arrived at 3:30 to find the house open, empty, with the TV on. Assuming the owner/manager was in the immediate area we let ourselves in and waited for 10 or 15 minutes. When no one appeared we called and reached the owner, who was in Zanesville at a real estate closing. Her sister, who was to check in guests, had left the house for a doctor's appointment. She instructed us to occupy our room and she would be there ASAP. When we left for dinner at 5:15 - 5:30 only the housekeeper had appeared. Upon returning from dinner we were checked in. The next surprise was there are no keys or method to secure your room, even from the inside. Disconcerting to say the least. The room (magnolia),described as "cozy" on the website, was decent size and very comfortable. The carpet was well-worn and badly stained. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, probably the highlight of our stay. Assuming the check-in glitch was a one time slip, I could recommend the inn, except for the glaring lack of security..

Beautiful home. Food was fair. Disappointed with advice on things to do.
2,8 sur octobre 21, 2013
We arrived on a Thursday approx. 4PM. We were advised check in was after 3PM. No one was there to greet us, but another couple that were already there said they had called the Inn number and were told she was running late due to a Doctor appt. and find your room and someone would be there soon. We found our room and waited. We had dinner reservations so we called and she said she would be there in 20 minutes.. so we left for dinner. When we returned the cleaning person was there and said Innkeeper had come and gone. Later we went downstairs and she was there to take our credit card info and said breakfast would be a 9. Had a good nights sleep and breakfast was fine. This was our 4th B&B stay and by far our least preferred. Carol needs to run the B&B or hire someone to do it. We like cats but if you don't or have allergies this is not the place. We saw 4 throughout the house. Bears Den was excellent for dinner & Kennedy's Bakery a must to take home some goodies!!
4,4 sur octobre 20, 2013
This is a very nice large historic home with gorgeous woodwork and a quiet setting. Rooms were very clean and the bed, pillows and towels were top notch. We stayed in the Rose Room and enjoyed it very much. The private bathroom was very spacious and was bright and cheery. Our hostesses, Carol and Patty, were very nice and worked hard at making us feel welcome. Breakfast was quite good and served with a smile. We became acquainted with another couple at breakfast and enjoyed our conversations with them throughout the rest of our stay. We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time here and in the area. There are many restaurants in Cambridge that are reasonably priced and have a nice quaint small town feel to them. The Bear's Den and The Forum were our favorites. Both had great food and rustic ambiance. One thing people should be aware of is the presence of cats in the house in case you have allergies or don't like cats. There were several large cats roaming around the inside of the house throughout our stay, even though the website says a "pet free environment." I don't think this is a good business practice overall, but for us it wasn't a problem.

The Colonel Taylor Inn B&B is a beautiful bed and breakfast. Our accommodations were very nice and comfortable. We stayed in the Rose Room. Very large private bathroom and king size bed. We happened to stay on a night when they had a full house and while the staff is very friendly and talkative, they didn't seem to be prepared for breakfast for that many. The breakfast was good but not 5 course...just average. The owner talked with us for a bit in the morning but not about the history of the home, but rather about the animals she takes in at her farm and her other business ventures.

What a great first B&B experience! The house was beautiful, good balance of modern conveniences and historic ambiance. The room and what we saw of the house were very clean.

Will definitely be back again, Thanks Carol and Mary!

We are early risers. While they did have coffee available, breakfast was to be served at 9:00 and we didn't eat until nearly 10. We need to rearrange our day a bit but otherwise it was a positive experience.

We enjoyed our stay, but when we first arrived, we were continually yelled at from downstairs by the person who greeted us. She was asking us questions, offering us drinks, etc. but it was very unprofessional and we had come away for peace and quiet - not more interruptions.

We stayed for two nights a few weeks ago - we enjoyed our time in the home and in Cambridge. The home has a lot of character and is beautiful. The Rose room is very large and cozy. The owner is very friendlo and we enjoyed talking with her. The breakfast was pretty basic but I think eventually that part will come along as she is a new owner. It was a nice and relaxing place to stay and very quiet. We enjoyed ourselves! :)

Carol and her staff were sooo helpful and sooo friendly; it's as though you've known them all your life.

The Col. Taylor Inn was not only beautiful, but it was also comfortable and welcoming. Carol (the owner) and her family were as friendly as can be and were more than accommodating - constantly checking to see if guests required anything while at the B&B, in addition offering assistance in planning daily activities and providing directions to local attractions. The breakfasts were fantastic (Carol has a French toast recipe that will simply knock your socks off!). Coming and going we were always greeted with a warm smile and friendly conversation. We were happy to share our anniversary with everyone at the inn and certainly plan to visit again.

We stayed at this B&B during March of 2013. The home is amazing, the owner is not. If you are looking for a traditional B&B experience lower your expectations here. It is worth a 1 night stay if you want to see this spectacular home. The new owner is a realtor in the area and she also owns a farm with 100's of animals. Her interests do not lie in running this property and it is more of an inconvenience to her. Our room was okay, but could have been great. A few things that stood out - an orange shower curtain from not being laundered, a large hole in the wall where a mirror once hung (mirror on the floor), and a TV that was ancient (VHS player) with terrible sound. The owner is sinking money into gigantic 3rd floor living space but nowhere else and it shows. She didn't have breakfast ready on Sunday because she thought we'd forget about daylight savings time. And she thought we were only staying one night. Her attention to detail is a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10. Again, visit to see the home, but it's not a true B&B experience if you are used to staying in B&B's.

My husband and I have never gone to a bed & breakfast before. Needless to say, I was nervous going to a place without ever having seen it before. However, after researching and seeing the other great reviews I took the plunge and booked one night for my husband's birthday. Cambridge is a sleepy little town but quaint. The Colonel Taylor Inn was beautiful! Carol, the owner greeted us at the door and from that moment forward we felt at home. Because it was off-season, we had the entire house to ourselves. Literally, she said we could go anywhere we wanted to. So my husband and I explored the house from top to bottom. She even showed us her room and where her grand-daughter stays when she visits. My husband and I stayed in the Lilac room which remains my favorite. It was cozy, private, with a gas fireplace that kept us warm and toasty at night. Breakfast consisted up coffee, juice, yogure and fresh fruit with the best french toast I've had in a while. My husband and I look forward to going back in the Summer when there will be more to do in the town of Cambridge. :-)

From outside to inside, Colonel Taylor Inn is clean, warm and welcoming. The owners bought the inn about a year ago and have already done so much to make it a wonderful stay. They were very courteous and stayed up until my mother and I arrived back after 10 p.m. She made truffles for us to take up to our room-which were delicious-and asked if we had any allergies she should be aware of when preparing our breakfast the next morning, which was a fruit parfait and banana french toast with pecans. The rooms were spacious. The one we stayed in does not have an inclusive bathroom, but it was right around the corner and still felt private. The owners also provide extra pillows, blankets slippers and bathrobes. All around it was a great stay, and the owners made the inn feel like a home away from home. My mother and I will definitely not hesistate to stay at Colonel Taylor Inn the next time we visit Cambridge. The only concern we had was the the bedrooms don't lock from the outside. The owners lock the doors at night once all the tenants are inside. We didn't have any problems and the owners assured us that they were keeping an eye on the rooms at all times.

Six couples traveled to a place in time. We enjoyed the Colonel Taylor Inn and the wonderful hospitality shown to us. The rooms are spacious, clean and inviting, all rooms had a fireplace. Excellent value, food was plentiful and presented beautifully. The town of Cambridge offered a good holiday feeling, everyone you met was very helpful and gracious.

The place and owner were both very nice. The reason I booked my room here was for the fireplace in the rooms, and the night I stayed the fireplace wasn't working. Everything else was beautiful though! The bath in the rose room was a nice stress releaser from the craziness of holiday traveling. The owner ate breakfast with us, which was a very friendly touch and made us feel at home.

I chose to stay at this wonderful inn in order to prepare for a professional exam I was taking in the area. Nothing prepared me better than being able to study in front of a fireplace - totally disengaged for a day. Since I was unable to attend breakfast, Carol gave me lunch. A truly beautiful home with exemplary service! A must stop if you are ever in Cambridge.

Be sure to ask Carol about the farms she owns and the stories attached to each.

Genealogy research took my brother, sister, and myself to Cambridge from Indianapolis. So, we wanted to stay someplace historic and nice. We were not disappointed! Beautiful home with clean rooms, wonderful hospitality, worth the extra money that we would have paid at an interstate motel (especially with the snacks and wonderful breakfast), very clean. Carol, her sister Susan and mother were very kind. If you go to the Town of Cambridge around Christmas you will be awsomely entertained with the light/sound show at the beautiful courthouse.

Stunning Victorian home with wonderful antiques. We stayed in the Lilac room which was large and beautifully appointed with antiques and lovely bed linens. The bed was a gorgeous four poster bed and was very comfortable. There are four bedrooms on the second floor each being unique and as pretty as the next. You could not go wrong with any of the rooms. We could not believe how quiet the house was. It was hard to believe there were other guests staying in the other rooms. The owner, Carol, was very friendly and made my husband and I feel comfortable upon arrival. She let her guests poke around any where we wanted, even the basement! The breakfasts were delicious and the conversation around the large dining room table each morning was friendly and inviting. If our travels ever take us back to Cambridge, Ohio we will without a doubt stay here again. This B & B is top notch!

Colonel Taylor Inn near downtown Cambridge was a wonderful respite during a cross country move. The Inn is being beautifully restored, our room, the Magnolia room was well appointed and quite. We arrived late around 9pm and the Innkeeper was right there to welcome us with hot coffee and a delicious dessert, a calm moment in a hectic day.

Third stay at Colonel Taylor; first two with previous owners. Beautiful home, well decorated and very clean. Room we stayed in was lovely and comfortable. Few items may have helped us be more comfortable. We travel B&B's frequently; almost all have a set of glasses and/or wine glasses with opener in the room. Nothing in this room. Also no way to lower blinds in very large, tall east windows. Woke up with sun shining in our faces. Private bath just outside of room was small and cozy and well equipped. New owner not on the premises upon arrival; albeit we were half hour early. Phone call got us in. Still not back 1.5 hours later. Leaving required two more phone calls to rectify the problem of returning in the evening. We never had a key to our room so couldn't lock it. Weird. Pleasant breakfast experience. All that being said, we will return as we are frequent visitors to the area. New owner is lovely, kind and gracious but may have her plate a bit too full with a plethora of other businesses and responsibilities in addition to many other interests!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Colonel Taylor Inn. The home dating back to the 1870's is an immense 9,000 square feet of living space and beautifully furnished. It was a pleasure to visit with the owner as well as her 91 year old mother who sometimes assists with guests. Sitting on the back porch, one could imagine the house when it was a private residence. The breakfasts were gourmet and served with some of the beautiful china and crystal the owner has collected. A visit to the Wilds is a must when staying in the area.

Lovely, large rooms, and the house is a real gem. Carol took good care of us. Enjoyed looking through the scrapbook that showed the house's renovation in the early 2000s.

The host was very accomadating and made us feel at home. I stayed 3 days in the Rose room.. Breakfast was great and the bed was comfy. Loved the atmosphere of the grand old house. This was my 2nd visit.

My husband surprised me with a 50th birthday dinner party at the inn and with an overnight stay included. We had dinner for 16, which was fabulous - a lemon pistachio salad, chicken stuffed with spinach and cheese, fresh green beans, roasted mini red potatoes, and yeast rolls. Servings were extremely generous! Carol, Susan, and Lydia did so much for us - they truly were a blessing. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was also great - souffle, fresh fruit, and scones. We felt very welcomed by all and would enjoy returning to the inn. Betsy Phillips

I cannot recommend more highly. We had a wonderful stay at the Colonel Taylor. The room was superb, the staff was very sweet and welcoming, and the breakfast was wonderful. We only wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed in the Rose room and enjoyed the beautiful master suite with a huge bathroom. It was well worth the slightly higher rate for this room. We will be back!

This was our first visit to the Colonel Taylor Inn Bed and Breakfast. We celebrated Valentine's Day here, it was absolutely Magical. We love Victorian Mansions, and this one exceeded our expectations!! The owners are wonderful!

I have stayed at many B&Bs in the US and Canada and we found the Colonel Taylor Inn B&B to be truly exceptional. Every detail of this "Grand Old Lady" home has been meticulously restored and improved. Our hosts were friendly and helpful in finding a nearby winery and our room was completely delightful (Magnolia). We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. The only suggestion I would have to the owners is to provide the option of a bigger breakfast, we were traveling and didn't want to stop for lunch. Otherwise, first rate!
5 sur février 15, 2012
Everything was completely outstanding. The room was so clean and welcoming. They had the fireplaces lit and snacks for everyone. They were wonderful. They chilled our champange and even brought us strawberries and cream to go with it right to our room. The breakfast was amazing. I am a picky eater and I loved it. I can not wait to come back and stay.

My 1st stay at a Bed & Breakfast happened this past weekend at Colonel Taylor's. The weekend was about my engagement to my future wife. The reception we got was amazing. Carol & Susan treated us like family, not just registered guests. They made a special event in our lives even more special (Thanks Susan - I owe you). The B&B was amazing. I love historic places and this place was amazing. Our stay was in the Rose Room which is fabulous. We did get to look at all of the rooms on the 2nd floor and they all are wonderful. I hope to get a chance to stay in each and every one. I was impressed with the breakfast (thanks Carol - you're the best). Would love to spend time there in the different seasons to get the full flavor of the area and the property. A big thumbs up !!!!

We stay frequently in bed and breakfast inns. The Colonel Taylor Bed and Breakfast ranks at the top of the list. The Irvins are warm and gracious hosts. The mansion is an absolutely lovely architectural structure that's beautifully decorated. The meals were creatively prepared and of exquisite quality. We look forward to future visits.

Jim & Patricia run a superb B&B. The rooms are lovely, spacious and incredibly clean. We enjoyed two fantastic gourmet breakfasts which would rival any fine restaurant AND GREAT COFFEE!!! They lead us to great places to visit and local restaurants. They are a welcoming couple who invite you with warmth and hospitality while engaging you in great conversation. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

We had a wonderful 3 day stay. Everything about the Inn was warm and inviting. Jim and Patricia Irvin were the "icing on the cake", a totally enjoyable host and hostess. I'm so glad we chose Colonel Taylor's B & B. Our stay is a treasured memory.

It was a dreary day outside but the warmth and hospitality of the owners Patricia and Jim helped us forget about the weather! The Inn is beautiful and our hosts were happy to share the history of the Inn with us. Our hosts Patricia and Jim were also helpful with tips on where to eat and what to see in the Cambridge area. If you have not visited the Colonel Taylor Inn you are missing the gem of Cambridge. Visit once and I am sure you will come back again and again.

We just returned from a two night stay at the Colonel Taylor Inn Bed and Breakfast and found it to be a delightful step back in time to a more elegant era. The beautiful rooms and gracious hospitality of the owners, Patricia and Jim, made it a memorable, refreshing getaway weekend and we hope to return again some day.

Our stay at the Colonel Taylor Inn B&B was lovely! The entire home is beautifully restored and decorated. The innkeepers Patricia and Jim have tirelessly spent years restoring this Victorian home as was seen in a large book of photos of their "adventure"! The Lilac Room was beautiful. The breakfast was very good, and both Patricia and Jim carefully balanced being there to accomodate us and providing privacy. It was a great stay, and we would recommend it highly to anyone crossing the scenic state of Ohio, or seeking a nice destination. Cambridge has many cultural attractions as well.

Colonel Taylors was a wonderfully restored victorian mansion that was immaculatly clean and sparkling. the grounds were beautiful and it was close to dining and shopping. the hosts were so friendly and the breakfast each day was delicious. it was very warm out those two days and i missed being able to open a window or regulate the a/c. it was stuffy sleeping. but the ceiling fan worked. i would go back there in a heartbeat for a stay.

The windows do open for anyone that wishes to do so. I am sorry you did not say anything to us. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay overall and would return. Sincerely, Patricia

We stayed in Colonel taylor Inn for our anniversary. It is a great b and b. The breakfast was good, the hospitality was great. They were very knowledgable on what to do in the area. The victorian style was beautiful and very clean. The rooms were a good size with fireplaces.

We visited the Colonel Taylor Inn for an anniversary R&R weekend. Jim and Patricia made sure the inn did not disappoint. The breakfasts were tremendous and Jim went out of his way to create gluten free meals for my wife. We especially enjoyed the conversations around the table but still weren't sure who the warden really was when we left. Probably most impressive was seeing all the work that they put into making the mansion a B&B. All the rooms are spectacularly appointed although ours was a little warm even under the ceiling fan. Jim and Patricia were also helpful in pointing out dinner alternatives in town (and out). The long weekend was exactly what we wanted and we definitely recommend a stay if you're in the area.

Evverything about our visit was perfect. The room was wonderful, the house was incredible and just spotless! Our hosts were very friendly and made us the most delicious breakfast! We made reservations for another visit before we left.

An outstanding victorian home in a neighborhood of other beautful homes. The owners were very gracious, the room comfortable, and the breakfast delicious. we cannot wait to visit again!

What makes B and B's so wonderful are the people who run them. Warden and his wife Patricia are hospitable folks who made my short stay so nice. My breakfast of beautifully cut fresh fruit, a miniture egg souffle and a raspberry white chocolate muffin with coffee and oj was without question the best I've had in any B and B. The bed was so comfortable, sheets and pillows were of the best quality. I will definitely stay here again!

The look and history of the house was very impressive. It was a hot weekend and stayed pretty warm in the house (mildly uncomfortable in our room, especially when not right under the ceiling fan) but overall our stay was pleasant and relaxing.

My daughter and I enjoyed a much-needed get-away after a tough year of high school. This was the perfect place to be! Gracious hosts helped us to feel truly pampered.

wonderful well atired rooms,very quiet and minutes to all local facilities. Patricia and Jim are exceptional hosts with very interesting stories about the Inn,great food and extremely clean and comfortable rooms with private baths,a rare find at B & B,s.We were treated as family members and as we needed to accomodate more family members on a short notice it was no problem for these hosts!The quiet charm is quite a difference from the loud roadside hotel chains found along interstate highways. As we visit this area of Ohio again we will only stay at the Colonel Taylor Inn! Rick and Bernie

A beautiful B&B. Comfortable in every way. I needed a gluten-free diet, and Jim and Patricia went out of their way to make delicious, "safe", gluten-free food. Jim and Patricia made gluten-free cookies as an afternoon snack, delicious gluten-free muffins for the morning, and an adaptation of their famous apple french toast with rice bread instead. Delicious. Grateful for their efforts.

An outstanding unique experience. A beautiful home which has been superbly renovated by its owners who are warm and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent! They were very accomadating with our early departure and we look forward to another stay in the future.

We are just entering the world of B&B; after staying here to visit the Wilds Safari, i can't believe what i have been missing by staying in hotel chains all these years. This place is a gem and the food and hospitality is amazing.

The Colonel Taylor Inn far exceeded our expectations in virtually every category. The charm, ambiance, historically correct decor, cleanliness and food were superior to 95% of the B&Bs we've stayed at around the country. Jim and Patricia's hospitality was second to none. The quality of the furnishings, towels, sheets, etc. was unsurpassed. What started as a chance visit turned out to be one of the best B&B experiences we have ever had and we will return. My wife and I have stayed at over 150 inns and B&Bs throughout the USA and we now consider The Colonel Taylor to be in the top three. We highly recommend it.

Can't say enough good things about our Col. Taylor experience. Tried it simply with fingers crossed after finding it on the internet. Absolutely beautiful home, full of history and exquisite original woodwork and fixtures from the original 1878 home. Jim & Patricia Irvin are to be commended for the comprehensive restoration not to mention being the most hospitable of innkeepers, warm and welcoming. And...Jim makes a mean souffle for breakfast. All in all, a great B & B value and experience, highly recommend it. We'll be back!!

My wife and I traveled to Cambridge to celebrate Valentine's Day & check-out the Wilds. While staying at the Colonel Taylor Inn, we found the innkeepers to be very pleasant and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Also, our breakfast in the morning was DELICIOUS! :) Yum ...

Fabulous ,awesome place close to many local area attractions. The hosts are wonderfull people. You will not be disappointed, make your reservation today, it is a fabulous getaway. Our only regret is we could stay only 1 night, next time it will be for 2 nights.

From the moment I stepped into the inn it was like going back in time. Everything was so polished and placed just so. My bedroom was accommodating and exceeded my expectations. Pillows to choose from, a comfy robe, fireplaces everywhere. The food was gourmet and I had to buy the cookbook before leaving to have alittle bit of the inn when I return home. The innkeepers made me feel welcome and had information for me to plan my stay in the historic town. I felt like royalty and was pampered for the weekend. I highly recommend this establishment. I will keep it on my list when I pass through. Thanks for a memorable weekend.

Hello to all, I don't usally write to many reviews however this B&B was so awesome I just had to say thank you so much to the owners , Jim and Patricia, they were a delight. The rooms was spacious and I felt like I was royalty during my stay. When you arrive to this awesome Mansion its breath taking. The rooms were awesome , clean and just a joy to be in. The service was outstanding and they were very helpful in helping us to see the area attractions, not only advising us what to visit in the area, but how to get there and also they had some literature on the attractions which were so helpfull. To think pretty much what it cost to stay in a cramped up hotel with people being load at times My wife and I stayed in this beutiful Bed and Breakfest all I can say is wow. My wife and I will return there whenever we are in the area again. You can be assured of a great experience. Once again Thank you Patricia and Jim for a wonderful stay !!

What a fabulous stay! We have stayed at many B&B's but the historic Taylor Mansion was the best in every way! The hosts were great, the rooms & beds were beautifully appointed, warm & comfortable with three sets of pillows to choose. Robes, slippers & Gilchist & Soames top of the line amenities. Breakfast was five star! We will be back every time we travel their way...

The bed here was the worst bed I've ever slept in. In fact, I didn't sleep the entire night. The pillow was like a rock and every time you moved the bed creaked terribly. It was also not a queen sized bed like advertised. It was only a full bed. This was not a restful, relaxing get-away. I needed to come home to recover from the trip.
Réponse du propriétaire
I am so sorry you did not have a restful stay. Our beds are queen size as advertised with quality mattresses in three of our four rooms. We do have a king bed in the Iris room & a full size bed in the Iris adjoining room for a single person that is advertised. I did go lay on it and it did not squeak for me? We have three sets of pillows in each room for your choice of comfort. I only wish you would have said something to us so we could have made your stay more comfortable. Even moved you to another room.

We had a wonderful stay in The Colonel Taylor house which has been lovingly returned to an earlier age of sumptuous Victorian opulence. We visited just before Christmas and our hosts had been busy as Santa's elves filling the house with visual treats, along with tasty smells of the season. Breakfast was delicious and accompanied by camaraderie from guests and hosts ... a very nice start to a long day. Jim and Pat were also helpful with tips on local spots and directions so all in all a very satisfactory stay at a lovely historic house.

The restoration to the Colonel Taylor mansion is beautiful with no detail overlooked. The wood work in the home is gorgeous and the room decor is very elegant. We felt very honored at the opportunity to stay at this incredible home. The rooms are spacious, with private baths, fireplaces and very comfortable beds. Jim and Patricia are very welcoming hosts who served a fabulous breakfast. Mom and I stayed the night after an enjoyable day visiting the Dickens Christmas Village and Cambridge Courthouse Lighting. I look forward to being able to return again any time of the year.

This was our best bed & breakfast experience by far! All of the rooms were well appointed, and decorated beautifully for Christmas. Our room was very spacious, comfortable, and yet cozy! I especially loved the fireplace! The food was fabulous!

We have told all of our friends about the wonderful weekend in Cambridge at the Colonel Taylor. We will certainly visit again!

This Inn is an architectural delight - beautifully maintained and comfortable. The Innkeepers have thought of everything such as extra blankets and pillows, etc. so you don't have to "make-do" in any way. Staying in the lovely Iris Room is a little awkward in that the bathroom is in the hallway outside the room door and right at the top of the staircase that everyone uses. Otherwise, the stay was outstanding and the food was exceptional. We would definitely visit again.

Lovely grounds and home. Very tastefully decorated. My wife and I had a great stay and will be staying again in the future. Owners were very professional and attentive to our needs.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting The Wilds in southern Ohio. It's nestled among the quiet streets of Cambridge Ohio and offers an opportunity for a relaxing stay. This inn is the beautiful result of Jim & Patricia's labor of love and you'll find they're very warm and welcoming people. My GPS didn't provide direct direction to the Inn due to the maze of one-way streets and visitors would be well advised to follow the directions on their website. Every aspect of the inn is impeccably decorated and worthy of a multiple night stay which is something we will do on our next visit to that area.

I have visited several bed and breakfast facilities and this one that is at the top of the list.

I would like to personally thank the people who made my stay at this B&B a breath taking experience, Patricia and Jim. They were very attentive and oh my, the place was spotless not to mention it was a breath of fresh air for me and my wife. The home was gorgeous and truly a master piece of craftsmanship. The food was excellent. Our room was divine and for the price it was outstanding. I would and have already recommended this place to all my friends and family who travel. I have traveled the United State extensively and have found a place I felt very comfortable in. So thank you Patricia and Jim your B&B far exceeded our expectations! We will be returning often!
