I chose to stay at Christopher's Bed and Breakfast for a quick one-night getaway. I always try to stay away from chain hotels and I'm constantly on the lookout for interesting B&B's. The fact that Christopher's B&B used to be a church intrigued me. The B&B is beautiful and cozy. The owner, Brenda, is so wonderful! She made a great breakfast and was very inviting. The town of Bellevue, Kentucky is a quaint little town that is nice to walk around in. I most definitely will stay here again!

It was a perfect situation for us. Easy access to Cincinnati, lots to do, room was immaculate. Best thing was that they had the same white noise machine we have at home, so it was like being at home. Breakfast was great.

As the title suggests it is as if you are a guest in Brenda's home - which of course you are! Every need is not only met but anticipated. A beautiful and thoughtful restoration managed by someone who cared enough to save the edifice while changing its purpose!

Great weekend away!!

My family booked this room for my wife and I's first married night together and I must say, they could not have picked a better place! The service is top notch, the place is beautiful, the room is amazing and the breakfast was delicious! Everything about the room was amazing, including the hot tub, TV, big bed, fresh robes and spacious living quarters! if you haven't been here, you should definitely give the Governor's Suite a try!
