Absolutely amazing.

We stayed in the "Margaret's porch" suite and it was absolutely amazing! It has its own entrance and porch with rocking chairs. The in room breakfast was an awesome feature as well as the large jacuzzi tub. The owner was great and so was the food! I would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a nice place to stay. It's location is also great in relation to things to do. We'll definitely be back!


Great place

We held a fundraiser in the Weller Haus banquet hall and then my wife and I spent the night. The owners and staff are very accommodating and helped us make the night a huge success. This was our first time staying on a bed and breakfast and we would highly recommend the Weller Haus. The breakfast was AMAZING!!! Stay here - you won't be disappointed.

My first stay at a B&B

5 on November 15, 2014

This was the first time I ever stayed at a B&B, I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable, clean and overall just nice it was. I very much enjoyed my own bathroom and “OMG” Jacuzzi in my room….I was very happy to learn they have WI-FI, so I had constant internet access. They also have coffee pot in the room so I was able to have my morning coffee with creamer that was in the little refrigerator. My bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows, the way I like it. They also offer morning breakfast in your room or in the main dining room. I had breakfast delivered to my room. I recommend the French toast, it was good! I am from Texas so I very much enjoyed the laid back nostalgia of early 20th century. The people were friendly and very helpful with questions and area directions. Great place! They also allowed my little dog "Sam" to stay with me..

Innkeeper Response
We certainly enjoyed having you and "Sam" stay with us while you were in town for a family wedding. Thank you for the kind words and we hope to see you again when you're back visiting family


Our new go-to place to stay in Cincinnati

5 on August 10, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Weller Haus while we were in town for the 2014 Buckle Up Music Festival. We had such a great stay that we thought it was worth sharing our experience. First of all, Weller Haus is in a perfect location - it is only a few minutes to drive or take a cab to downtown Cincinnati, yet it is nestled into a quiet neighborhood across the river in Bellevue, KY. The property is meticulously maintained, consisting of several houses surrounding a common garden area, which felt like an oasis to escape from the commotion of the nearby city. Our room was spacious, spotless, well equipped (TV, wifi, refrigerator, microwave, iron), and very tastefully decorated - so much so that it gave us a few good ideas for redecorating our own master suite at home. Breakfast was excellent - I opted for the stuffed French Toast while my wife ordered the Eggs Benedict - both were delicious and served hot with plenty of coffee. Also worth noting, the staff was extremely friendly - helpful when we needed help, out of the way when we were ready for some privacy. All in all we had a great stay - nothing to complain about - and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on future visits to Cincinnati.

Innkeeper Response
It was great meeting both of you and happy to hear you enjoyed your visit while at the Buckle Up festival. We appreciate your glowing review of our property...and perhaps you can make your way here again for another visit.


Just simply AMAZING!

5 on August 07, 2014

We stayed only 1 night. Had we known how great this place was...we would have stayed a few nights. This is certainly a place that we will come back and plan extra nights!!!! From the moment we pulled up, to the greater, to the room....exactly what we were looking for! Oh, and the breakfast was amazing! Delicious and huge portion. It was the best B&B breakfast that we have ever experienced! We were able to walk to some really cute eateries and shopping. Very cool place. This is a MUST STAY at kinda place!!!!

We so appreciate your wonderful comments about our property and hope that you can plan another visit with us in the near future!


Historic Charm

5 on May 27, 2014

We enjoyed a 2 night stay in the Garden Room & could not be more pleased. Room was relaxing, comfortable with lovely view of the beautiful gardens. Breakfast was delicous, ample portions & arrived right on time each morning. We liked having the option of breakfast in the common are or in our room. This historic two house B&B is quaint, charming & welcoming for enjoying time away from home. We will most certainly return & highly recommend to others.


Happy Birthday Liz ... Margaret's Porch Suite

5 on December 23, 2013

Guests 12/5/2013 My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday by enjoying a quick getaway from Dayton to this beautiful and well appointed bed and breakfast " The Weller Haus ". After a short one hour drive early that eve... we checked in and then darted back over the bridge for a world class dinner in Cincinnati...then back to the Weller Haus to settle in for the night...our choice was " Margaret's Porch Suite ". The evening was perfect...The room was gorgeous, clean and exquisitely comfortable. We felt a great sense of privacy and enjoyed a bevy in the hot tub... then retired to the room and watched a movie from their house selection of DVD's. We had a blast being together and feeling so far removed from the worlds hustle and bustle. Liz said it was the best birthday she had ever had...perfect in every way...Thank You Weller Haus. We will return...we want to try another room...yet we will always love staying in Margaret's Porch Suite because it holds such a special and memorable place in our hearts !!! I highly recommend this bed and breakfast for all but especially couples seeking to run away for a night or weekend and spend quality time in a beautiful, plush and relaxing setting...BTW...The breakfast was amazing !!! We both chose the burrito and fresh fruit !!! I have recommended this location to many friends and coworkers already. Its truly the Belle of Bellevue Kentucky !!!

Outstanding B&B!

5 on July 25, 2013

We have stayed in this B&B for the last few years! Lee Anne makes you feel right at home from the moment you walk through the door! The food is suburb and she makes sure that everything is to your liking. Breakfast can be served in your room or in the dining area. This B&B is far superior than a lot of others and is worth a visit!


Our secret getaway.

5 on December 28, 2012

Leanne does an amazing job at Weller Haus. We only live a few miles away, however my husband & I look at it as our secret little slice of paradise. The food is always great and plenty of it.
