Our stay at the B&B was delightful, the owners are very friendly and made us feel welcome right away. We were greeted in the driveway and offered coffee and a snack. We had a lovely 2nd floor room and our own private sitting area, it was very comfortable. I would recommend a visit here to everyone. The food was extremely good and there was plenty of it. There was also plenty of beverages and a special chocolate treat for us in the room. :) I look forward to going back again to spend a little more time. The owners are definitely friendly and make it so that you want to come back again. Thanks Chris and Paul for your warm hospitality!!

My family and I needed to find a place to stay while we attended a family wedding nearby. Paul and Chris run a lovely bed and breakfast that far exceeded our expectations. The location is convenient to local points of interest. The place was spotless and beautifully decorated. The beds were so comfortable that I got a great nights sleep. Chris served a healthy and very tasty breakfast both days i was there. The outside porches and patios offer beautiful views of the yard and gardens. We could not have been more pleased and will definitely be coming back again.
Carol, Thank you so much for your review. It was our pleasure to be your host. It is guests like you that makes it all worthwhile to operate a bed and breakfast! Look forward to seeing on your next visit. Chris

We spent three nights and were incredibly refreshed and relaxed. The room was beautiful and comfortable and the sheets smelled amazing. Breakfast was wonderfully tasty and filling. The hosts are lovely people who are totally in the right business!
Thank you kindly for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to host your visit. I hope your work while you were here has helped you to meet your goals. Look forward to seeing you again. Chris

This was our first stay at a B&B and it exceeded our expectations! Upon arrival we were welcomed with hot tea, cheese and crackers. We chatted with Chris about the historical background of the home and received a tour of the property. The surrounding area includes a pond, a barn (with turkeys, bunnies, and chickens), and plenty nature to enjoy. The fall foliage made it especially scenic. Chris was very accommodating to dietary needs. Dinner and breakfast were delicious and included fresh herbs from her garden. The conversations with Chris, Paul, and the other guests were pleasant. The spacious bedroom fit all three of us (Chris and Paul set up a very comfortable air mattress to accommodate our group of three). The entire home was tastefully decorated-historical charm with modern convenience. Chris and Paul made our stay memorable and we will certainly return!
We were so honored to be your first B&B hosts. It is guests like you that restore our faith in the human race. Looking forward to your next visit! Chris

What a wonderful place to stay! Christine and Paul are excellent hosts. Very friendly and suggested things to do and places to visit, which I took advantage of. Very clean and spacious. Delicious meals! Beautiful property - relaxing and homey! Definitely hope to go back again sometime and take advantage of the biking in the area.

Couldn't say more about Chris and Paul's hospitality. What a wonderful couple. Very warm and inviting. The food was superb. The house and surrounding area has so much history. Felt welcome and at home. Would definitely - highly recommend a stay at this bed and breakfast. Hope to go back and visit again.

What an absolute delight! Chris and Paul went above and beyond to make our stay so memorable! Drove us to the Greenway Bike Trail - picked us up, had a map all prepared for us showing us the route for the Covered Bridge Tour! The property is delightful - so full of whimsy, character, and warmth! We were welcomed and made to feel so comfortable. Late night chat with Chris and Paul on their beautiful wrap around porch, which overlooks this grand property! Would definitely stay here again! Kathleen Satullo, Avon Lake, OH

This was our first stay at a B&B and it couldn't have been more perfect. My husband and I felt so welcomed by Chris & Paul. The property's charm is only outshined by Chris' culinary prowess. The food was exquisite and obviously made with love. We would definitely recommend the Herb Garden to anyone looking for a more perfect weekend away.

Chris and Paul made us feel very welcome. Delicious breakfasts were served every day! Chris went way beyond the "call of duty" and when asked, prepared a dinner meal (for a very reasonable fee), so that our family and relatives in the area could get together one evening. The food was exceptional!!! If you enjoy watching birds, you will not be disappointed, there are many birds that visit this B&B. We also had fun touring the area, visiting shops, covered bridges and nearby beaches. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Don't miss this gem of a B&B. We highly recommend it.

While visiting family and friends in Ashtabula County, I was looking for a comfortable room at a good price. Herb Garden B&B proved an excellent choice. Chris and Paul Martello are warm and inviting hosts; I felt like family after sharing breakfast at their table. I stayed in the Vinyard Room, which was spacious and comfortable. Chris is an excellent cook, and she was more than accommodating when I told her about food allergies and preferences. Chris specializes in the personal touch: a snack when you arrive, a pitcher of iced water with lemon each evening in your room, fresh cut flowers in the bedroom and at the breakfast table. Herb Garden B&B offers a warm, family setting that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys meeting new people or who wishes to experience genuine Midwestern hospitality. Perfect for the solo traveler. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

This was our first experience staying at a B&B, and it was such a great time. Chris and Paul were very welcoming and the conversation was very easy. They have a beautiful home, and we absolutely enjoyed it. The food was very good, and I would highly recommend them to anyone I know!

We were very pleased to find such a lovely B&B near friends we visited in this rural corner of the state. The owners are gracious hosts who offer charming rooms and a delicious breakfast. We stayed in the upstairs queen bedroom with a bathroom ensuite. We enjoyed meeting the owners and admire the work they have done to make their home welcoming to guests.

My husband surprised me with a wonderful night out at the wineries then we stayed at this bed and breakfast. Chris and Paul were so welcoming and friendly. I felt right at home with them. Definitely worth it!!

My sisters, sister-in-law, daughters, niece and cousin had a wonderful time at the Herb Garden B&B celebrating my birthday. Chris and Paul Martello were wonderful hosts. The accommodations were beautiful. We had a lot of fun helping with the meal preparations and learned a great deal about using herbs in preparing our food. The dinner and breakfast were delicious. Chris and Paul saw to our every need. We had a wonderful time and hope to return in the future.

Mary Anne & I enjoyed our stay at the Herb Garden B&B. From the moment we walked in and enjoyed homemade biscotti's until we departed following an outstanding breakfast, Chris & Paul made us feel welcome. A morning coffee on the porch overlooking the beautiful country side was just one of the many pleasure my wife & I enjoyed during our anniversary getaway. We're already planning a return visit with our son, his wife and our granddaughter.

My husband and I stayed in Chris and Paul's beautiful home in Jefferson during D-Day weekend in Conneaut, OH. Their hospitality was friendly and warm. It felt like we had been friends for years. Our son and daughter-in-law stayed in the upstairs bedroom while we had the first floor bedroom. Both rooms, bathrooms and the entire home was spotless and the decor was very appealing. The food was superb and served on a table with sheer elegance. This was a first time experience at a bed and breakfast for us and a very positive and memorable one. We would definitely stay here again. Would highly recommend this B&B you will not be disappointed!

We loved everything about this b and b. Chris and Paul were welcoming and so enjoyable to talk with. Our room was quiet, very clean and very comfortable. There were so many cozy places to sit and relax in addition to our room. The breakfast was delicious. Thank you, Chris and Paul, for a memorable stay!

My wife and I had limited funds to celebrate our fortieth anniversary but we stayed one night with Paul and Chris and really enjoyed the visit. They make you feel welcome and comfortable. The accommodations are very nice and the food is terrific.Even a casual look around gives you some idea of how hard they have worked to provide a beautiful setting and relaxing atmosphere to take in and enjoy. Thank you Paul and Chris.We'll be back again. Bill and Maggie 7-26-2014

My wife and I booked a last minute room on the way to a fun day at Geneva-On-The-Lake. Chris and Paul were very friendly and accommodating, even gathering up firewood for us for the backyard fire pit. Our mattress was ultra-comfortable, and the room was extra clean and cozy. We hit it off with the other four house guests, and all 8 of us had a great time together!

I stayed at Herb Gardens B&B so I could attend my high school class reunion. Since I was traveling alone, I wanted to stay in a place that offered a safe environment. The B&B more than met my expectations. It is highly likely that I will return soon to enjoy a writer's retreat where I can work uninterrupted. Chris and Paul made me feel more than welcome.....like I was visiting family!

My husband found this B+B online when looking for a place for us to stay while visiting some of the wineries along Lake Erie in the Geneva area. What a wonderful place to stay! It was scrupulously clean and beautifully decorated, in a quiet farm setting with beautiful gardens and patios. The innkeepers were lovely and friendly - they were attentive without being intrusive. The rooms are gorgeous and the area was so quiet at night, hard to believe. We had a choice of what to have for breakfast and when, and it was delicious. We will definitely stay with them again the next time we are in the area!

My mom and I had a wonderful time learning how to make BBQ ribs and lemon cheesecake with Chris. We picked this B & B because cooking classes were offered, and took away some yummy recipes! Breakfast was lovely and filling. The innkeepers had a resident cat that was so friendly. The cat actually added to our stay. We enjoyed ourselves thouroughly and hope to make it back this way again sometime. Jennifer & Rita

We needed a place to stay to visit extended family for the weekend (mind you, it was Easter weekend no less!) in the nearby NE Ohio area and came across Chris & Paul's quaint B&B. They were the most friendly and accommodating hosts! We had delicious breakfasts prepared for us each morning and even pitchers of water provided in each of our rooms upon our late night return. Chris & Paul are both so thoughtful & considerate. We highly recommend. - The Pope's

We needed a place to stay overnight while photographing a wedding in Jefferson, OH. There were a few chain hotels 15-20 minutes away but we wanted to stay at a homey, local place. Found Herb Garden and Chris was so accomodating for our late arrival. When we got there, she had a glass of wine for us both and her and Paul talked to us for a while about their place and their family. In the morning, they had a homemade breakfast of waffles and hot peach compote that was better than a 5-star hotel breakfast. Then they took us on a golf cart ride around their huge farm where their extended family lived. You felt like you were back in time to the 19th century where hospitality and charm were still alive. And she has cooking demos and classes several times per month too.

We stayed with Paul and Chris on our 39th anniversary and they helped to make it a truly enjoyable time. The accommodations were very clean,comfortable and inviting. The location is wonderful and pleasant. The breakfasts were tops and the coffee was great. We hope to not have to wait till our next anniversary to stay with them again. Bill and Maggie, Hartsgrove, Ohio

We were looking for a place to stay that was close to family in Jefferson and found the Herb Garden. Chris and Paul went out of their way to make us welcome and comfortable. They went beyond our expectations when Chris offered to make us dinner after our late arrival! Breakfast each morning was outstanding and incredibly creative. What a wonderful experience!

The host and hostess were personable and supplied a lot of information about the wonderful area we were visiting. The dinner cooking demonstration was very good and the meal was delicious.

I chose this inn because of its proximity to the Western Reserve Greenway bike trail and all the wineries in the Geneva/Madison area. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by our hosts Paul and Chris Martello. The home itself is lovely and well-kept, with a spacious guest room and private bath. The wrap-around porch looks out over flowerbeds and a peaceful yard. Learning about Chris's cooking school makes for such interesting conversation, and the fact that she and Paul also enjoy cycling was such a bonus! They even offer guests pick-up and drop-off service if they plan to ride the bike trail. Breakfast was wonderful, from the first cup of coffee on the porch to the fresh fruit salad, frittata, toast and bacon. Eggs were fresh from chickens on the adjoining property and even the bacon was "homegrown!" I can't emphasize enough how very friendly and accommodating the Martellos are. They truly made us feel like old friends.

We truly enjoyed our weekend stay with Chris and Paul. We took advantage of the cooking class offered by Chris and Paul, wonderful food and company. The rooms were nice, within a few miles of bike trails which we took advantage of and an easy drive to the local wineries. We would certainly stay again, maybe even get a ride in Paul's sweet 1949 Chevy pickup. John/Mary

We visited Herb Garden B&B and Herb School in September. We spent 2 wonderful days enjoying Paul and Chris' home and neighborhood. Our stay was comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. We attended Chris' cooking school and experienced a wonderful evening, trying new foods and meeting new friends. Paul and Chris were wonderful hosts, provided information on local happenings and the bike path. We tried a new winery and amish store per their suggestions. Amazing weekend. Wonderful food, great breakfast and friendly hosts. I will recommend this herb school and B&B to all. We loved our room and all the added comforts of home. Thank you Paul and Chris for a wonderful relaxing weekend. Tina Mc

The house, especially the bedroom that we used, was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our personal visit while being treated to an exquisitely prepared delicious breakfast. The friendly and homey atmosphere beats any motel that we ever stayed in, and we look forward to staying with you the next time we find ourselves in NE Ohio.
