About

Looking for a relaxing weekend getaway? Maybe a mini-vacation? The 1861 Inn is your retreat. The 1861 Inn provides the leisure and business traveler with a unique alternative to the traditional hotel experience. Situated on seven and a half acres in the Village of Batavia, the inn offers a comfortable base to explore the many attractions that the metropolitan Cincinnati area offers. Two well-appointed and spacious guestrooms and a poolside guest cottage enhance the intimacy of your stay at the historic Penn Estate, which was completed just prior to the Civil War. All rooms offer private baths and countless amenities and the inn’s many common areas – from porches to pool to library – will guarantee a memorable B&B stay.

Perfect Place

5 on March 23, 2014

Just spent a weekend in Cincinnati and stayed at the 1861. It was great!! Tom was a wonderful host and his Springer Spaniel "Marley" was a perfect gentleman. Located in a very quite suburb just a short drive to the city, this inn is both historic and very comfortable. We are definitely looking forward to our next trip to the 1861.

The Inn was charming. Our room was very comfortable with a queen sized bed, claw footed soaking tub, steam shower and fireplace. Perfect for a chilly night. Tom and Carole were very gracious, giving us a tour and history of their historic home.


We love this place!

We randomly chose this B&B a little over 2 years ago. We are so happy that we did! We have returned several times since, and every time has provided us with the rest and relaxation that we have been seeking. Carole and Tom have made us feel like family. We've been to other B&B's, but have never found one that provides such a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Oh yeah, the food is out of this world! We'll be back soon!


Wonderful Weekend Away

My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary. It was a peaceful getaway. Carole and Tom are so pleasant and hospitable. The location is so very quiet. And the accommodations are comfortable and relaxing. Will definitely be coming again.


Last minute request

4.4 on February 23, 2014

I needed a last minute location to stay due to an emergency weather event and Carole and Tom went out of their way to accommodate me. The overall experience was excellent, their hospitality outstanding, and the Inn top notch. I fully plan on stopping back with my wife under a more reasonable situation.
