It's not located in a fashionable part of town but that's OK because the B&B is in a large, historic mansion in the midst of a park-like setting, quite isolated from the rest of the world, yet in just ten minutes, you can be in the heart of downtown. Why stay in another corporate hotel when you can have a much nicer and larger room in a more peaceful, beautiful setting with a very nice breakfast and it's all at a price that's lower than most good hotels. Also, the owner is a lovely woman who was kind enough to give us a ride downtown when we needed to get there for a wedding which just happened to be taking place at the same time as Cincinnati's huge Oktoberfest celebration so there weren't any taxis available...thank you again!

My mother (85 yrs. old), my Aunt (almost 87), my cousin and I stayed overnight on a Thursday with a reservation for Annie's Suite. We arrived around 5:30 pm and stopped at the main house to register. After reading the reviews, I expected to meet Kristen. When Isaias introduced himself and told me that he had only been there since June, I was a little apprehensive. However, he soon put my doubts to rest. We settled in and made dinner reservations at the Montgomery Inn. We had a little time to spare and went over to the main house to ask Isaias whether we could have a cup of coffee. Not only did he make a fresh pot, he provided a beautiful table setup and some delicious lemon pound cake. When we returned to our suite after dinner, it was a nice touch to find a light on. Breakfast was quite a feast of coffee/tea, orange juice, fresh fruit combo, scrambled eggs, sausage and pumpkin cake. Over the course of the visit we had several delightful conversations with the caretakers, Isaias, his wife and 5 yr. old son. They are doing the restoration work on the properties over time. For them it is truly a labor of love. The main house was in better condition that the "cottage," but the fact that we had the entire main floor made up for it. We truly felt that we were staying in someone's home! We enjoyed hearing the history and viewing some of the other guest rooms. They are all individually quite charming. Before breakfast we had coffee in the sun room of the main house. I can't wait to return and see the results when the restoration process is finished. I highly recommend Six Acres Bed and Breakfast. It's a bit like going back in history and felt a little like staying in a "museum" house. The personal touch of Isaias and his family simply would not be found in a hotel. They are amazing!

A grand historic mansion, nicely restored. Superb value.

A check-in person was not available to greet us, so there was a bit of confusion settling in since the room we reserved was not ready and was being worked on but they upgraded us to the room of our choice instead. The facility needs some work, but they acknowledge that and are working on renovations. They were all very friendly. The breakfast was basically the same each morning; variation of fruit and coffee cake with eggs and fried polish sausage style meat. Nice location out of the way, but not too far from everything.

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!

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.

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

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.

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..
