What a great way to experience the Hocking Hills

4.8 on August 06, 2014

We stayed here for our 10th anniversary, and loved it. The house was charming, and Sue was a fantastic host. She had great suggestions for how to enjoy the area, made wonderful breakfasts, and made sure we were comfortable. Our room was spacious and clean. At first we weren't sure if we'd enjoy staying outside of the parks, but it was really nice being so close to the historic square in Nelsonville. There's a great restaurant (Rhapsody), a nice coffee shop, a couple sandwich shops, a pub, a gallery, several shops and a train(!). Nice to be able to walk to this. If we go back to the region, we'll certainly stay here or at one of Sue's other properties.

Warm and charming with a personal touch

4.4 on July 10, 2014

We stayed here somewhat at random because we were traveling through the area and the town met our "we expect to be here at the end of the day" qualification. Wish we had more time to stay and explore, as it looks like a rather fun-in-the-outdoors type of place. The accommodations were very nice, and it's so refreshing to have a personal touch and learn about where you're at that we would definitely stay here again if we decided to make a proper visit to the Hocking Hills.

We enjoyed our two nights stay at the Primrose B&B

3.2 on May 05, 2014

Our room was small but adequate. Very quiet. We were impressed with the lady that owns and cares for property. Value: In comparison to other B&B it really is a great value. Cleanliness: The room was clean. Dining: Both mornings we had lots of fresh fruit and great muffins as well as a hot casserole.

A great stay in a grand home!

We had a wonderful stay in the Dogwood Room while visiting the area for the MOGA (Geocaching event) this spring. Our room was lovely and very spacious; the bed was super comfy with a really nice large bathroom; and the ambiance throughout the house was great! Breakfast was filling and tasty, served in a friendly atmosphere. The free WIFI was a nice bonus. The "parlor" is filled with beautiful books and magazines to read in a relaxing atmosphere. The price is very reasonable. Sue is a wonderful hostess; her passion and pride for her historic home and the lovely little town of Nelsonville is evident in everything she does. We would DEFINITELY stay here again, and will recommend it to others!!

Wonderfully Cozy and great stay

Hyde House Experience

5 on January 02, 2014

The home was beautifully maintained and Sue gave us a tour and a history lesson on the house and the area. We even got a tour of her other house across the street that was still being renovated. It was an excellent experience that we will repeat.

Hyde House in Nelsonville

4.2 on December 30, 2013

This is the second time we stayed 2 nights at this B&B in order to be close to Stuarts Opera House. We enjoyed many activities on the Square in Nelsonville and could come and go from the house as we pleased. It was a very enjoyable getaway in a historic setting.

primrose b&b

4.6 on November 22, 2013

had a great stay at the Primrose B&B across the street from Hyde House; Room was spacious, spotless, & comfortable, plus we had the whole house to ourselves; Sue Maxwell was a gracious hostess & a wealth of information on nearby dining & shopping; dinner at nearby Hope Lake Lodge was outstanding! The only negative (& a minor one at that) was the noise from traffic along Fort Street that runs in front of the house. This was a real gem; would definitely stay here again.

Lovely home with really comfortable bed.

Lovely B&B

5 on September 30, 2013

We have stayed in many B&Bs and the Hyde House has been added to the top of our lists of favorites. Sue is a gracious, welcoming hostess and is a fountain of knowledge about the local area. Lovely, homemade breakfast made daily too. Nelsonville is a great starting point for many of the local activities and is only a short 15 minute drive to Ohio University, which make Hyde House a great option when visiting your student or participating in OU events. We're looking forward to visiting again!
