one night getaway

4.6 on November 30, 2014

My wife and I spent one night and were very pleased. The owners were very friendly, the rooms nice, and the breakfast tasty.


Mid-week getaway - perfection

4.8 on November 24, 2014

We were looking for a place in Newport KY to stay - wanting to stay on the KY side of Cincinnati. We wanted some place in walking distance of "Newport on the Levee", and hotels we looked at weren't meeting our ideas or expectations. I stumbled on this place and it looked perfect. I had never stayed at a BnB before so i didn't know exactly what to expect. The owners were so down to earth and easy to talk to and made us feel right at home. We were the only guests that night. The house has lots of unique historical things to explore, and the rooms each had their own unique feel. We picked the Henry Schriver room which had a 2-person whirlpool tub which did not disappoint. The entire place was darling, perfectly located, and the owners were wonderful to work with. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to get away in the Cincinnati area for a few days.


Overnight Concert Stay

5 on November 13, 2014

I chose this place due to my never having been to Newport before and it being just a couple of blocks from the venue of the concert I was attending. I am most happy that I did. The historic home is beautiful and full of great antiques. The host's were most gracious and the accommodations were clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. I did not have breakfast as I was in a hurry to return home, however while speaking to the other guests in the dining room, the food both looked and smelled delicious. I would not hesitate to stay here again and next time, will enjoy the food as well as the company. Thanks for making my stay pleasant!


Gateway get-away

4.6 on November 09, 2014

Gateway B & B is conveniently located within walking distance of several popular dining spots and the pedestrian bridge to downtown Cincinnati. It is a short drive to Eden Park and Mt. Adams. The hosts are welcoming and obviously take pride in providing an enjoyable experience for their guests. The rooms are comfortable and include details such as robes that you do not always find in similar accommodations. Bathrooms include jetted tubs and bubble bath is provided. The downside to the tub is that they are noisy and you can hear your neighbor's tubs when they are in use. Overall the Gateway was well chosen for a weekend get-away.

A superb restoration of a very interesting old house in the remarkable Newport historic district. Ken and Sandy are perfect hosts, breakfast is first rate, and the house is full of fascinating oddments, many of very special historic interest.

Lovely

Had a great time! The house is decorated beautifully and gives you a warm homey feeling when you walk in. Ken and Sandy were so nice and very accommodating. The room was a good size but the best part was definitely the HUGE tub in the bathroom. Also, the homemade breakfast is AMAZING!!!!


Fantastic B&B

4.6 on September 01, 2014

Our stay at Gateway was very pleasant. The room was very comfortable and we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful location. We really appreciated the delicious breakfast, especially the goetta, a local treat that neither of us had heard of before. Ken and Sandy were excellent hosts and we will definitely stay here again in the future!


relaxing, great breakfast, great people!

Signature Dish

Goetta
The Germans that settled in Cincinnati came up with this dish. It has lots of grains, spices, and pork and it is packaged like a roll of sausage. We slice it, fry it and serve it with eggs. A real favorite!
