The Michael Cahill B&B

Our 25th year as Ashtabula's only lakeside B&B. In a faithfully restored 1887 Harbor home, it's a short walk for beach glass collecting,swimming, bird watching; or, down Hulbert St. hill to the riverfront for fishing, restaurants, & shops on historic Bridge St. The Ashtabula Great Lakes Marine Museum & Hubbard House Underground RR Museum are both close by. A traditional, European-style B&B, offerings for breakfast emphasize local, seasonal foods, homemade breads and entrees. Centrally accessible to country wineries, covered bridges, and 28 miles of Lake Erie shoreline.

I have visited Ashtabula County many times, and stayed at several different B&B's. The Michael Cahill B&B is my number one choice when I travel there now. It is one of the 2 best B&B's I have ever experienced. The owners were friendly and accommodating from the moment I made my reservation. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. Every guest has access to a kitchen area where food and drinks can be prepared. There are spacious public rooms, and lots of amenities. It was a short walk to the lovely shops and restaurants of Bridge Street. Then to top of an amazing stay, the breakfast was unbelievably delicious. If you will be staying anywhere in the area, make it a point to reserve a room here to truly relax and unwind.

The B&B was beautiful and the couple that runs it are great to talk to and take very good care of you! The food was amazing! Can't wait to go back!

I would highly recommend this B&B to friends and family. I was called out of town on short notice and struggled to find a decent place to stay in the area. I stumbled across Michael Cahill B&B doing an internet search. From the communication through the reservation process including the check-in and individualizing the menu, I was made to feel I was the number one priority. The neighborhood was quiet and appeared safe. Lake Erie is within walking distance and in sight. The exterior was neatly landscaped. The interior was clean and uncluttered. My bed was very comfortable. They offer a sitting room and front porch swing to relax in your "home" away from home. If Lake Erie is your destination or your lay over, Michael Cahill B&B is the place to be. Thank you Mr. Goode and Ms. Pat. I look forward to the next time I am called to Ashtabula. Dr. Pratt

Great care is given by the hosts in making guests feel special and comfortable. My husband & I stayed 4 nights and each morning the breakfast was great along with the wonderful company of the hosts & guests. The location of the home is in a good neighborhood that is safe & peaceful. We will stay here again when visiting the area.
