Fantastic stay!

5 on September 11, 2014

We loved staying at Six Acres-- the room was huge, the breakfast was delicious, and the caretakers even took us on a tour of the rooms used in the underground railroad, which was fascinating. We would absolutely stay here again in a heartbeat!

Good B&B stay while passing through Cincinnati

3.2 on September 06, 2014

We were on our way to Tennessee and were looking for a good halfway point to spend the night. Six Acres B&B is very reasonable, pleasant, comfortable place to spend the night.

Disappointed, didn't stay second night because expectations not met

1.6 on August 30, 2014

We were not pleased with our stay at Six Acres. When we drove up, the outside of the house is deteriorating. There was a sign that a historical preservation renovation was in progress, although there was no evidence of this. At 3pm, when we arrived for check in, the house was locked. We rang the doorbell twice and did not receive a response. We waited 10 minutes and called at 3:10 and the manager met us to let us in. We had reserved Barbara's room online but he said it may be noisy as other people were staying in the other house (7th Acre) and we may prefer to stay in the main house. We decided to look at the two rooms he offered (Dixon and Sallie Mae). We decided on Sallie Mae because it seemed larger than the other. We brought our things in to our room and then decided to rest before going to dinner. We hadn't noticed the absence of the smoke detector in the room, duct tape around the bathroom window, partially filled shampoo/conditioner bottles, and overall un-cleanliness of the room. I didn't feel the sheets were totally clean-and walking barefoot in the room, my feet picked up a lot of debris. We had already unpacked and settled in so we didn't feel like we should leave, but sleep there for the night and see if our minds had changed by morning. There were no blinds over the windows, just lace curtains. We decided after breakfast that we would forfit our money, rather than stay another night where we felt it was unclean and not the value of what we had paid. Kristin, the owner, said that as part of our contract we signed when we booked the room there was a 14 day cancellation policy and we had missed that window. She offered that if it was booked that night, by someone else, we could have the refund, otherwise not. I understand that we signed the contract, and were liable for the payment but we felt that they should be accommodating since the room was not what was advertised on their website.

Interesting house history

A pleasant oasis

4.6 on August 14, 2014

We spent a restful night in Iris room in the Seventh Acre house. The room was large and comfortable. The air-conditioning was a welcome relief after a very hot and humid day. The manager and his family were very welcoming and we learned a lot about the history of the house. We were not able to experience the breakfast as we had to leave very early, but if the smells from the kitchen when we checked in were any indication, it must be delicious. This is a perfect location for a family reunion as there are many different accommodations available and there are kitchens and living rooms included with some. We were just two people and it was perfect for us, too.

Family Togetherness!!!

I think the B&B is a wonderful place for family & friends to get together in one place. The property still needs some work but there have been some improvements..

Historical House

3.2 on February 26, 2014

Enjoyed learning the history of the house; would have loved to know more and seen pictures of the extensive renovation!

Very nice host

3.0 on November 21, 2013

We were in the separate house. It looks like it had been restored or renovated, but could use some modernizing, like modern windows. The place is on a busy street and the road noise coming through the old windows was loud. One of the best parts of the stay was visiting with the host at breakfast. She was very nice and entertaining and had lots of experiences to share.

Beautiful old home

4.2 on October 28, 2013

Our stay was comfortable. The room was huge. The breakfast was the best part of our stay. She did a wonderful job and even made it an hour early so we could be on the road. Friendly place.

We had a very pleasant stay at Six Acres Bed and Breakfast. The room was clean and well appointed. Our host was a delight to speak with. It is a grand house that has seen better days.
