Guests can feel free to roam around the gardens, porches and bricked arbor area. There is an herb garden surrounding the kitchen to greet you. Be mesmerized by a windmill at the pond, or take a nap in a hammock under the pines. Located far enough away to enjoy the sounds of nature, yet within a half hour of numberous wineries and covered bridges. Take a step back in time at the Jefferson Depot Village just six miles away. This 1848 farmhouse has undergone many renovations and continues to show its charm. The house has been in the family for almost 100 years. Hosts, Chris and Paul Martello enjoy sharing interesting stories about the house.

Beautiful family farm B&B

4.6 on May 28, 2015

While visiting family and friends in Ashtabula County, I was looking for a comfortable room at a good price. Herb Garden B&B proved an excellent choice. Chris and Paul Martello are warm and inviting hosts; I felt like family after sharing breakfast at their table. I stayed in the Vinyard Room, which was spacious and comfortable. Chris is an excellent cook, and she was more than accommodating when I told her about food allergies and preferences. Chris specializes in the personal touch: a snack when you arrive, a pitcher of iced water with lemon each evening in your room, fresh cut flowers in the bedroom and at the breakfast table. Herb Garden B&B offers a warm, family setting that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys meeting new people or who wishes to experience genuine Midwestern hospitality. Perfect for the solo traveler. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great Night Away

This was our first experience staying at a B&B, and it was such a great time. Chris and Paul were very welcoming and the conversation was very easy. They have a beautiful home, and we absolutely enjoyed it. The food was very good, and I would highly recommend them to anyone I know!

Enjoyable Stay at a Lovely Home

We were very pleased to find such a lovely B&B near friends we visited in this rural corner of the state. The owners are gracious hosts who offer charming rooms and a delicious breakfast. We stayed in the upstairs queen bedroom with a bathroom ensuite. We enjoyed meeting the owners and admire the work they have done to make their home welcoming to guests.

Wonderful and Relaxing

Birthday Celebration

4.8 on October 06, 2014

My sisters, sister-in-law, daughters, niece and cousin had a wonderful time at the Herb Garden B&B celebrating my birthday. Chris and Paul Martello were wonderful hosts. The accommodations were beautiful. We had a lot of fun helping with the meal preparations and learned a great deal about using herbs in preparing our food. The dinner and breakfast were delicious. Chris and Paul saw to our every need. We had a wonderful time and hope to return in the future.

An Anniversary Getaway

5 on September 14, 2014

Mary Anne & I enjoyed our stay at the Herb Garden B&B. From the moment we walked in and enjoyed homemade biscotti's until we departed following an outstanding breakfast, Chris & Paul made us feel welcome. A morning coffee on the porch overlooking the beautiful country side was just one of the many pleasure my wife & I enjoyed during our anniversary getaway. We're already planning a return visit with our son, his wife and our granddaughter.

Absolutely A Lovely Stay at this B&B!!!

5 on August 29, 2014

My husband and I stayed in Chris and Paul's beautiful home in Jefferson during D-Day weekend in Conneaut, OH. Their hospitality was friendly and warm. It felt like we had been friends for years. Our son and daughter-in-law stayed in the upstairs bedroom while we had the first floor bedroom. Both rooms, bathrooms and the entire home was spotless and the decor was very appealing. The food was superb and served on a table with sheer elegance. This was a first time experience at a bed and breakfast for us and a very positive and memorable one. We would definitely stay here again. Would highly recommend this B&B you will not be disappointed!

Just great! You have to make the experience!

Charm and Relaxation

We loved everything about this b and b. Chris and Paul were welcoming and so enjoyable to talk with. Our room was quiet, very clean and very comfortable. There were so many cozy places to sit and relax in addition to our room. The breakfast was delicious. Thank you, Chris and Paul, for a memorable stay!

Fortieth Anniversary

4.6 on August 12, 2014

My wife and I had limited funds to celebrate our fortieth anniversary but we stayed one night with Paul and Chris and really enjoyed the visit. They make you feel welcome and comfortable. The accommodations are very nice and the food is terrific.Even a casual look around gives you some idea of how hard they have worked to provide a beautiful setting and relaxing atmosphere to take in and enjoy. Thank you Paul and Chris.We'll be back again. Bill and Maggie 7-26-2014
