A great, friendly bed and breakfast set in the most interesting portion of Chillicothe. The room was impeccably clean, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Breakfast was excellent and Mr. Hirsch is an incredible host. We look forward to visiting The Atwood House again. Overall, highly recommended.

This was a wonderful experience! I needed a stress-free weekend and I certainly got one! The house is wonderful, the bed dreamy and the service impeccable! I will return. Thanks for a great time!

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Atwood House and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The home itself is beautifully decorated and impeccibly maintained. Rooms are large and beds are comfortable. Bill Hirsch makes every guest feel special and serves a magnificent breakfast in an elegant dining room. Chillicothe is very much worth a weekend of sightseeing. Jeff & Karen O'Mara

I'd highly recommend this B&B for your visit to the Hocking Hills or Chillicothe. We stayed here after a production of Tecumseh (about 10-15 minutes away) and a day of hiking in the Hocking Hills (about 30-45 minutes away). It's a quiet place, extremely well appointed and has a fantastic gourmet breakfast. The host is incredibly interesting and a fantastic cook. You can't go wrong with this B&B and we look forward to returning for another adventure another day.

After Bill showd us our room / bathroom (we stayed in the Hunt) we set our things down to relax a bit. Mr. Hirsch had previously asked us if we had a place in mind to eat and recommended the Smokehouse. It was an easy walk downtown. After dinner, we attended the outdoor drama “Tecumseh”. We returned to the home around 11:30 p.m. and headed for our room. The bed was soft and inviting. I LOVE FEATHERS and had plenty. My husband admitted the bed was nice, even though he is not a “squishy bed” fan. If you like an overly firm bed, you may not have gotten a good nights’ sleep; but I sure did! It rates as one of my top 3 favorite beds ever. The bathroom was roomy and in excellent working order. Breakfast the next morning at 9:00 was homemade and excellent. We had waffles, fruit and cream, sausage, coffee, tea, and juice. The other couple staying in the home was on a more extended stay and asked what they would like the next morning (which would be their last morning). I thought that was a nice, personal touch. Breakfast was served on fine china. Things that stood out about my (too) short stay at the Atwood: - It was amazingly clean. Everything from the bed to the bathroom to the décor was clean and fresh. - It was friendly and inviting. The service was excellent; the (too) short stay was peaceful. I can easily see myself spending a few days at the Atwood in the winter, cozyed up in the parlor with my nook. - The gardens were beautiful. As you can see in the pictures, obviously Bill has a knack for not only decorating and restoring a home, but gardening and landscaping. - It was affordable. $80 for all of this? Best deal in Chillicothe. Period. Overall, I can easily see why it was rated the best Bed and Breakfast in Ohio (Ohio Magazine, 2008). I wouldn’t hesitate to come back and recommend to others to check it out. Don’t wait until you’re “in the area”. Make it your destination.

We stayed here in April while traveling with my 93 year old mother. She is still talking about it. Bill is a wonderful host and the breakfast was superb. He painstakingly restored this house and it is magnificent. Bill is from this area and gave us some great suggestions for touring the historic sites. We had a great time and hope to return in the future.

We stayed overnight here to see Tecumseh. Bill was full of great suggestions and had brochures about other interesting places that we had not planned to visit. After hearing his suggestions, we visited the Adena mansion and enjoyed the architecture of the Caldwell Street walking tour - both were wonderful additions to our vacation site-seeing. The breakfast was elegantly served and delicious. We saw the ballroom that was beautifully set up for a party of 50 - what a wonderful place this would be for a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner. Don't miss this wonderful place to stay in Chilocothe.

The location, comfort and hosting provided at the Atwood house made our stay most satisfactory. Even the smaller of the available rooms was comfortable and well furnished.

Visit this Greek revival classic. Located in the midst of a lovingly-preserved district of diverse old-but-restored homes. Bill has done a beautiful restoration and makes his guests so comfortable. Breakfasts are tops!

We spent two lovely nights. This was my first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and it was all I expected and more. The house is beautifully restored and the attention to detail in the furnishings and decor is spectacular. It is like stepping back in time. Bill Hirsh, the owner is very friendly, knowledgable of the area and a great cook. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. The room was immaculate and the bed very very comfy. I would definitely go back again if I was in the area.

My husband and I stayed at the Atwood House not too long ago. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The house was extremely clean. Mr. Bill/ owner was very friendly. It was fun to hear about the history of the house. Our breakfast was by far the best.. I can’t wait to return back to the Atwood House.

We had a great time at the Atwood House. We plan on going back on a regular basis. I have also setup plans to have my staff spend a night at the house also when they want to.

Since 1997 I have had the pleasure of staying a few times at The Atwood House and each has been a wonderful event. If you listen closely at night to the walls, you will swear you can hear voices of visitors from long ago. There is a sense of serentiy within the rooms which eliminates all the outside world of today.An enjoyable stroll of 2 blocks to the historic downtown and the famous Cross Keys Tavern to hear The Goosetown Astonishers is a must. The streets near The Atwood beg for you to come saunter and listen to the quiet history tell their stories. Began with a visit to the Ross County Historical Society next door (ask about the secret room) then you will enjoy your walks throughout the area even more. Getting a copy of a book about historic Chillicothe sites from Richard Peck adds even more fun to your stay. The rooms are great, the service impeccable and the food a joy to anticipate.

This was our second visit to the Atwood House and of course we loved it! The breakfast every morning was wonderful, and Bill is soooo wonderful. The city of Chillicothe is always active and inviting.

During a chilly weekend getaway in April, we were so lucky the b&b we intended to stay in had plumbing problems. We were referred to the Atwood and had a surprising and wonderful stay. Bill Hirsch is a kind and considerate host, and a year after our experience we often discuss returning to Chillicothe just to stay at the Atwood again. The rooms are wonderful, the house is charming and the history lesson was a bonus!
