I was in town for a funeral and chose 6acres B&B so that my family and I could have a more intimate setting. We spent our evenings together in one of the two parlors. All of the services exceeded my expectations and I will definitely stay there again. Chelli's kitchen is second to none. Christian and Chelli have done a great job in preserving the history of this house which was once a stop along the Underground Railroad.

We stayed in Annie's suite. Shelley was very welcoming and after a full day of meetings, the suite was welcoming with a scented candle!

Attended a wedding in Cincinnati and wanted to spend the night. Six Acres was very close to the Pine Croft Mansion (where the wedding took place). The magnificent house was warm and inviting and Chelli was there to greet us with a warm welcome and an even warmer smile! Beautifully appointed rooms with complimentary water bottles (nice touch) and large, comfy beds. Very clean and tidy. Breakfast was delicious and Chelli accommodated our vegetarian and vegan diets without missing a beat! I can't recommend this beautiful, historic home enough.

What Kristen and Chelli do at Six Acres is a treat and a delight. An overnight stay in one of the beautifully appointed rooms is relaxing and healing. Breakfast in the morning is delicious. Entertaining and profound stories of the history of the house as a stop on the Underground Railroad add to the value of the breakfast. The hosts are responsive and thoughtful. What a great place!

Stayed here for a wedding last weekend. From the moment I arrived , to my departure, I felt as if I was in a different time period. Everything was serene, peaceful, and very clean. The breakfast was very flavorful. I really enjoyed the conversations with the innkeeper concerning the house's rich cultural history with the......... I will let you ask her about that! I really did not want to leave and am already thinking of how to make my way back for another overnight stay. Thank you so very much for this very hospitable stay. ~ Michael

I was greeted by Kristen upon my arrival and felt I was leaving friends upon my departure. My friend and I stayed Monday through Friday. I would have to say my favorite thing about my vacation, other than spending time with my friend, was getting to know Kristen and her sister Chelli. What a beautifully unique inn rich with history. Our room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. If I ever find myself headed to Cincinnati again, I will definitely be calling Kristen or Chelli to make arrangements!
5 on July 23, 2016
My friend and I stayed Monday through Friday in this lovely home. Kris, the owner, was here to welcome me upon my arrival, and give a warm goodbye upon my departure. I couldn't have asked for anything more. The hospitality was unbeatable. I felt like I was staying in a best friend's home. Very comfortable accommodations. Shelly, Kris' sister, was so nice. When Kris wasn't around, Shelly took care of everything. Each morning we had a tasty breakfast and wonderful conversation. The house was quiet, cool in the 90 degree heat, and clean. Don't miss out on this one of a kind experience. You can't go wrong staying here.

We had a fantastic stay, but the real gem is Kristen, the innkeeper. The location is beautiful and is a quiet retreat while still being in bustling Cincinnati. I'll be going back:)

Recommendation was made and initially I was skeptical due to the fact I had never experienced the B&B. Oh my goodness it was amazing. Upon initial hellos I knew my stay was going to be wonderful. I had the honor of staying in Grandma Dixon's room. The breakfast meal was delicious but what I enjoyed the most was the conversation and learning about the history of the house and the family ancestry of its owner. I would definitely come back time and time again and recommend to anyone visiting the Cincinnati area to stop by and stay a while. You will enjoy.

This gem is quietly situated just off a major thoroughfare, convenient to downtown Cincinnati and several interstate highways, and is a bargain for the greater Cincinnati area.

My wife and I were looking for a great place to stay for our anniversary and we can't say enough about Six Acres B&B!! Such a beautiful home, friendly, accommodating host, and our room was wonderful!
3.8 on April 13, 2015
We were thrilled to find the Six Acres B&B as it is a fairly affordable option for our family. We were especially happy to stay there as it has the more unique arrangement when booking Annie's Suite that fit our family's needs as we were traveling with our children. The cottage was definitely adequate, nothing particulary luxurious. And the breakfast was also delicious.
3.4 on March 24, 2015
My girlfriend and I booked the Grandma Dixon room for two nights while we were having vacation in Cinci and we were glad we decided on Six Acres. The place is much cheaper compared to hotel prices and we enjoyed the breakfasts in the morning. I'll admit, we didn't spend as much time enjoying the house as we could have but the ambiance of the entire house is certainly something worth exploring. I highly recommend this place to stay if you're looking for a good getaway for a city vacation!

Beautiful historic home. Very friendly and welcoming staff, delicious breakfast.
4.4 on October 05, 2014
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.
3.0 on September 17, 2014
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.
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!

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.
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
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.
3.6 on July 31, 2014
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..

Enjoyed learning the history of the house; would have loved to know more and seen pictures of the extensive renovation!
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.
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 were cheerfully welcomed at Six Acres, shown the property and our room(house if you stay in Annie's). Beautiful accommodations and linens. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast offered more delicious homemade food than we could possibly eat. Kristin was helpful and full of great information. After seeing the place my wife hesitantly asked how much we'd spent for all of this. She was shocked at the amazing value. We know we'll be staying here during our next Cincinnati trip.

Staying at Six Acres was was such fun and affordable. We enjoyed learning the history of the house, looking at all the decor of that period of time. Kristin is a wonderful hostess, eager to share history, make her guess comfortable, and makes a delicious breakfast. Enjoyed meeting the other guest and sitting around the breakfast table chatting with them and Kristin. Definitely will stay there again. Thanks Kristin, We'll see you again, Naomi

This was my first real experience with a bed and breakfast. What a way to travel and get to know the place! The innkeeper and owner were friendly and hospitable. My room was quaint and breakfast delicious. I enjoyed my stay immensely. Beautiful place.
4.2 on August 16, 2013
My son and I spent one night in the 7th Acre cottage and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Beds were comfortable, the living room charmingly homey, and our host spent time sharing local history. We needed an early start, so breakfast was served to us a half hour early, which we greatly appreciated. If we'd had time, we would have taken advantage of nearby trails in Le Boiteaux park. Highly recommend!
4.6 on August 07, 2013
We had a wonderful stay. Owner and innkeeper were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about Cincinnati. Breakfast was wonderful. Fruit and eggs were included every morning. We stayed in the annex and had access to a kitchen which was very handy for storing and heating leftovers. Air conditioning worked! We will return.

A lovely inn with a rich history associated with the Underground Railroad.
4.4 on July 21, 2013
First a warning: it's not air conditioned. But, despite being there during a record hot day in the upper nineties, our room was reasonably comfortable with just a ceiling fan. Twelve foot ceilings certainly help. Both our bedroom and our bathroom were huge, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The mattress was firm and there were plenty of pillows. The TV was very old school, but we don't vacation to watch TV. The location is perfect, in the midst of a forested park but still only a $20 taxi ride to the middle of town. There's a bus stop right across the road - $1.75 fare and a half hour later we were at the riverfront. We left our car there. No need to fuss with parking! The house itself is more than old school: it's ancient, and brimming with an exciting history that our keepers were happy to share with us in colorful detail. But never overbearing, like the best of innkeepers, they knew when to keep us company and when to leave us alone. That's why we stay in B&B's, to get that wonderful personal touch - and the breakfast was no disappointment either! Bacon and eggs cooked perfectly, a bowl of tropical fruit, and the coffee cake is to die for! Nothing packaged or premixed. We would definitely stay there again, and definitely recommend it to one and all. You won't find better at this price point!

Located in the College Hill area of Cincinnati on Six beautiful acres. i enjoyed having coffe while overlooking the propertry. The home is historic, built in 1841. I liked that there are parts of the home that take you back. The staff was excellent and other guest were friendly. Overall, i enjoyed my stay and will certainly visit again.

very nicely kept B&B in Cincinnati. renovated Victorian house and charm. good AC, most rooms with private bath, king beds. keys for after hours entry, free parking. innkeeper friendly and helpful. quiet, plan on sleeping in as breakfast is later.
3.4 on July 16, 2013
The house and rooms were pleasant and the staff friendly. The food was very good. My one concern was that the driveway entrance is extremely narrow and has very low visibility, on a street with fast-moving traffic coming around a blind curve. It was somewhat harrowing entering and leaving the property because of this.
3.8 on July 16, 2013
We saw two deficiencies in the room - 1. there were no curtains or blinds in the windows - light and privacy and 2. there was no tissue (Kleenex) in the room, so we used towels and toilet paper as needed. Other than that it was a beautiful, friendly place to stay.
4.2 on July 09, 2013
The first room we were given was in the 7 acre. The bathroom had not been cleaned so they moved us to 6 acre which is the main house. We wanted to be there anyways and the new room was a lot nicer. Mark and Kristin the innkeepers were so nice and professional. They were apologetic and still remained positive even when the power went out for several hours on the entire street. We enjoyed chatting with the staff and the breakfast was delicious.
5 on June 23, 2013
Very nice place located close to the Northside area. Lots to do in Northside. Maybe 15 minutes to downtown proper. Mark was very nice, informative about the area, and made a great breakfast. I've recommended 6 Acres to my friends.
4.2 on June 12, 2013
Our stay was very pleasant. The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the house, the Underground Railroad, and the general area. We thoroughly enjoyed talking with Mark, the innkeeper, who was born in the house and knows so much history. We enjoyed meeting other travelers at breakfast each morning. Breakfast was tasty, the room was comfortable, and we know we'll be back!

The owner and manager are very accommodating of any special requests. The rooms are large, quiet and very nicely accented. Only drawback is a lot of steps in this historic home.

We celebrated our daughter's wedding here and it couldn't have been any better! We had 10 rooms for our family and friends. It was like having a wedding at Grandma's house. The proprietor (Kristin) and her staff, Mark & Summer made everything perfect. Our wedding guests were so impressed. The rooms are large and beautiful. The food was mouthwateringly delicious and the service was the best!

I happened to accompany my mother at her 50th class reunion at 6 Acres Bed and Breakfast and it was the time of my life. It reminds me of the serenity of my home town and filled with so much history.

We will definitely return. It was close to our favorite destinations/restaurants. But it was secluded enough to offer the retreat we were looking for. If you love historical homes this is the one for you; we never learned so much about the underground railroad than here.
5 on March 22, 2013
I loved the charming Six Acres location, and appreciated being upgraded to a larger room and also receiving a delivery of homemade chocolate cookies in the evening right after I arrived. I also had a great breakfast conversation with the innkeeper, and enjoyed learning about Cincinnati and the b&b itself! Thank you!

Great location, nice rooms and good breakfast. Will stay again here in the future.
4.6 on January 21, 2013
Our only problems were that the room was cold the first night. It was fine the 2nd night. Also, because it's a very old house there was translucent plastic over the windows so we couldn't enjoy the view outside. Our host, Mark was excellent, and had a lot of stores about the house and it's place in the underground railroad, and other associated history.. I wasn't aware of that before our stay. Breakfast was wonderful.

My boyfriend and I usually stay at a fancy hotel downtown when we come through Cincinnati to visit family but we decided to try Six Acres this time around. We were thrilled with the accomodations and hospitality and are planning on coming back for the holidays. It feels like we sort of have a "home" in Cincy now to return to :)

I was traveling through Ohio on way to North Carolina to start a new job. This B&B is located in an area of town where you might not think of one would be, but was easy for me to find. I arrived late in the evening and find that the manager was waiting for me with a plate of hot chocolate chip cookies. The next morning I was greeted by the B&B owner whom had prepared the most delicious breakfast. She spent some time with me visiting and telling me about the history of the inn. I had a wonderful time while staying at this B&B and have plans to visit it again soon.

A big thanks to the Kris and the 6 Acre Team. My stay was last minute and perfect. They did a great job of dealing with my last minute reservation via hotels.com when I was desperate for a room in Cincinnati. My room was comfortable, clean and met all my needs. Breakfast was amazing both morning. Also appreciated the communication with Kris and how accomodating she was. Would stay there again in a heart beat. Thanks!

My daughter and I took a road trip and I decided this time to stay in a bed and breakfast rather than one of the area hotel chains. All of the reviews I read online about Six Acres far outweighed the reviews of the more traditional places. We were not disappointed. We notified the owner that we would be arriving later than expected. We were greeted upon arrival, chatted for a bit about the house and its history, and shown our room. It felt like we'd stepped back in time. Our room and adjoining bathroom were clean, nicely decorated, spacious, and comfortable. The house sits back from the main road so it was pretty quiet. The house has Wi-Fi and cable TV, which my daughter and I put to use. We were treated to fresh baked cookies that night and a delicious breakfast in the morning in the common dining room (egg soufflé, fruit, sausage, juice, coffee, pound cake). It was truly a wonderful restful experience. The house is still undergoing some cosmetic renovations but it did not interfere with our stay. My only complaint is that the water pressure was low and the water didn’t get as hot as I would have liked. I'd stay at Six Acres again and consider other bed and breakfasts on future trips.

There are so many people get into B & B's who must be doing it for a living but with Kristin at 6 acres B & B in north Cincinnati it seems more an act of love. I stayed for only one night, sadly, but will come back when I have more time. The building is a magnificent old home full of lovely antiques. The rooms say "welcome" in a hundred ways. But most important is just the feeling that Kristen creates by the way she treats you. I arrived later than officially I was supposed to (around 11 p.m.) and within 2 minutes felt more like a favourite family member whose well-being, not the late hour, was what mattered. Breakfast was delightful, especially the creamy, tasty potato bake (though the quiche and fruit were also great). Kristen came and sat with me and a few other guests and, again, it felt like family. Don't miss this wonderful place and person! - Norman Dale

WE RENTED SIX ACRES B&B FOR OUR MOM'S MEMORIAL ON THE 1ST OF JULY. THEY DID EVERYTHING THEY SAID THEY WOULD AND MORE. WE ORDERED FOOD FOR 60 PEOPLE, BUT HAD MORE THAN 100. SOME HOW THEY CAME UP WITH ENOUGH GREAT FOOD AND NO ONE KNEW THE DIFFERENCE. I HEARD SO MANY COMPLIMENTS AND PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT DIFFERENT THINGS THEY COULD RENT THE B&B FOR. THEY ALSO HANDLED THE OVER FLOW OF CARS WITH GREAT EASE AND THE FAMILY WERE FREE TO SEE OLD FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND SAY A PROPER GOODBYE TO OUR MOM WITH NO WORRIES. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING.

First time staying at a B&B and we loved it! This place is awesome and so full of history. We stayed in the Grandma Dixon room and it was huge with a very comfortable king bed.

I would highly recommend Six Acres and will be back as soon as I get a chance...the food at breakfast was almost as good as the conversation...beautiful areas to walk right next door...with a National Forest a short drive away...accessible on Cincy public transport...many good restaurants within a few miles north or south...

I tag along with my hubby on some of his business trips, and our stay at Six Acres was one of those trips. He planned to stay at a hotel (borring), so I suggested A B&B; why stay somewhere that is cold and impersonal, when we could stay somewhere cozy, warm, welcoming, and get a homemade breakfast? Six Acres exceeded all expectations! Mark, our night innkeeper is full of the rich history surrounding Six Acres, and its part in the Underground Railroad. Mona, our breakfast chef made the most fantastic breakfast (yummy souff

The room was even lovlier than the pictures, and the view outside the bay window was beautiful. The bed and bathtub were enormous, and the bathroom was bigger than my dining room back home. I loved the cushy bathrobe on the hook in the bathroom. However, some little things were missing that should have been there: no soap, no handcreams or shampoos or bubble baths. There was a basket but it was empty. They found me some things after I asked, but they seemed to be in short supply. And the room smelled musty because there was a leak in the ceiling of the laundry room next door. The food was delicious, although dinner cost $10.00 more than the website said it would. The staff brought me a fudge brownie with a lit candle in it, after dinner, and sang "Happy Birthday" when they realized it was my birthday. That was a thoughtful, wonderful touch. I also got a delightful impromptu tour and history from one of the managers, when I asked about the connection of the house to the Underground Railroad. Our conversations, that night and the next morning, were the highlight of my visit. All in all, I enjoyed my stay very much. A couple little details could have made it even better, but I did come on the off season and there was just a skeleton crew available. The plusses by far outweighed the minusses.

My Girlfriends and I selected Six Acres because we wanted a chance to get together and spend time but also be in the city for great food! Not only were our rooms nice and cozy....we had a awesome time and Kristin and Mona were great cooks! Mona sang songs from the Underground Railroad after breakfast and really gave us an awesome history lesson. Six Acres is more than just a bed and breakfast because the innkeeper and her staff are so knowledgeable about the history of the house and Cincinnati during that time. I recommend this place for anyone to anyone who love history, young and old!!!!

Kristin is AWESOME. We had a great time and Kristin made us feel right at home. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast for everyone. We also recommend taking the Underground Railroad Tour. We could not make the whole tour during our stay but plan to go back!!!

Loved our stay...the property is lovely, and our appreciation skyrocketed when we learned its history. The owner is delightful, and made us feel welcome throughout our stay. We would definitely go back!

I thought bed and breakfasts were supposed to be beautiful. I love history, but this place needs someone who can take care of it. Dollar Store decor, crooked pictures and lamp shades. Clean dinner ware, bath tubs, real soap would have been nice.

Loved staying in Annie's Suite. Kristen was very interesting and helpful. I thought that Six Acres was an excellent value. The breakfasts were outstanding! Would definitely return to this B&B.

The story of the home is very interesting, but there were many things that needed to be repaired: Back porch was unstable, some electric wiring was inadequate. The hostess was great, but food could have been more interesting and tasteful.

Lived in this neighborhood more than 25 years, and "discovered" the joy of Six Acres after I moved away and had to find a place to stay when I went back "home." It's a beautiful old gem of a building with lots of history in a very lush location in College Hill. Kristin's a charmer, and we'll be back!

I made my reservation on a recommendation from a family member. I was happily surprised when we arrived. The house is warm and inviting and the innkeeper is as well. It was booked to capacity the weeekend I was there and it was nice and cozy. Ms. Kitchen was attentive to all the guests individually and yet made it feel inviting as a whole. She met all the needs and did so w/a smile on her face the entire time. I stayed in the "7 acres" site. The back is enveloped in trees and shading and was a beautiful way to wake up that Sunday morning and have the sun streaming through the sheers and curtains. Lovely! I look foward to visiting again.

It was an honor to stay at a home that had been a part of the underground railroad. The owner provided stories and details that truly enriched our overnight stay

Told we didn't have a room after we got there, but was confirmed by Bed & Breakfast.com. Was emailed later that they had no room but was off computer by then. Since everything was booked up in the area, we took a room they had with a shared bathroom. The bathroom door did not stay closed and the lock did not work. Someone had to stand outside the bathroom door to use the restroom. Not happy with our stay.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Six Acres. The house is lovely and the food was grand. We treated our adult children to breakfast at the house and they too were delighted.

My small family had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful B&B over our Spring Break. We have two young daughters and it is sometimes difficult to find B&B's (our preferred lodging type) amenable to accommodating children. Kristin, the innkeeper, was more than amenable and extremely hospitable. We just loved her and the house. We actually stayed in the annex, Seven Acres, and it was perfect as we had our own kitchen, two bedrooms and two full baths - a real home away from home!!! We're actually moving to Cincinnati this summer, so not sure if we'll get to take advantage of this great place again ourselves (well, maybe a romantic weekend if we're lucky), but we'll definitely be sending our family Kristin's way when they come visiting :))

Six Acres is a beautifully-restored historic home, easily accessible to all areas of Cincinnati. From the moment the deer crossed the driveway as we pulled up, it was a magical stay. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, nicer than I expected for the very reasonable price. We were greeted with warm brownies, and received an even warmer welcome from Kristen, the innkeeper. The tour of the home with its authentic underground railroad hiding room was an excellent counterpart to our visit to the National Freedom Center museum. Kristen was full of interesting information and conversation, and really made us feel more like we were staying in the home of an old friend. We will definitely be back!!

This is a unique B&B. The location, house and owner are each interesting and enjoyable.

Six Acres is convenient to downtown Cincinnati, less expensive than a hotel during the week, and much friendlier. I enjoyed chatting with Kristin, the owner, and she was more than willing to accommodate my food preferences for breakfast. I will definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay if you are in the Cincinnati area. It is easily accessed but sits off the road and backs up into a lovely wooded area. Some of the "rooms" available are actually full floors with kitchen and living room areas. Kristen Kitchen is a warm and friendly innkeeper who serves a wonderful breakfast. Thanks to her, this beautiful home has been preserved. My only caution is that the lower level of the 7th Acre that we rented, really only sleeps 3 unless someone wants to use the sofa. It was listed as up to 4 persons. But we had an abundance of room and the kitchen came in very handy during our Thanksgiving family preparations at my sister's home nearby.

Location was my only consideration in choosing Six Acres (walking distance to my friends' place). So I didn't expect my stay there would be so nice. My room was large, comfortable and very well designed with an eclectic mix of turn-of-the-19th century furnishings. Firm bed; good light for reading; plenty of hot water and good pressure. A mid-week guest, I monopolized Kristin's conversation; we exchanged remodeling tips and stories of wild animals in the city - I repeat her stories about Cincinnati bear sitings every chance I get. About location; Six Acres is located on a ridge overlooking Hamilton Ave and the LaBoiteaux Forest Preserve. An excellent site for a home or B&B. And a great base for checking out fall colors. The adjacent forest preserve is especially nice (fall colors are dense at the base of the ravine).

We wanted somewhere to feel out of the city, yet to be close enough to site see all we wanted. This location worked well for that. Even though you are inside the city limit you feel alittle more in the country with the way the home is located on the main streets.. Kristin the owner is a true joy...

The Bed & Breakfast was very beautiful & relaxing! The innkeeper made us feel so welcome! We definitely would like to return.

My husband and I had a lovely, spacious room and extremely comfortable king-sized bed at this b&b. It was about 15 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, in a residential neighborhood, so not in the middle of things, and that is what we were looking for during our vacation. The property was private and expansive (I could see how weddings and receptions would be delightful there). The best thing about the house is its owner and its history. The house was used during the Civil War as part of the underground railroad; thus, it housed slaves escaping to the North. The attic remains unaltered to honor those who were hidden there. Kristin Kitchen, the innkeeper, is a charming person, fabulous chef, extremely well-spoken and knowledgeable about the inn, her business and planned additional business opportunities that she can pursue in conjunction with her inn. A definite gem!

We always enjoy our stay with Kristin and her staff!!! The service, rooms and food are always TOP notch and she knows how to treat people! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We found this B&B on the internet and did not know anything about it when we booked. Just needed a little R&R. We were delighted to find out that it was part of the Underground Railroad. Ms. Kristin was so knowledgeable about the UGRR, the house and African-American history that we were amazed. I'm a teacher and was thrilled to be able to take pictures and gain information that I can use in my classroom. It was a wonderful time for my husband and I to relax and enjoy some downtime. I recommend this B&B to all.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Six Acres. The room itself was very large, featuring a King sized bed – a rarity for a B&B. The breakfast was excellent and well portioned, featuring eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, and muffins. The staff is what really makes Six Acres special. They were a delight to talk to, and the inn keeper is full of personality. She’s what really makes the stay special, so make sure you get a chance to talk with her. We would definitely consider staying at Six Acres again in the future.

Nice people, but the property needs some attention. There were leaks (including buckets to catch the water) in the dining room due to the recent heavy snow. Although the room was nicely appointed and warm (large space heater), the rest of the house was chilly and appeared to be heated by individual space heaters.

First the pictures cannot do justice in conveying the ambience at Six Acres. The house and related properties are absolutely gordeous! the staff was delightful and the owner is so knowledgeable and personable. I didn't want to leave. There is so much history there. I travel to B&B's in my profession but will return for any purpose that brings me to the area. I definately reccomend Six Acres.

This was a most pleasant stay for us. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the company very much. The room was more than adequate, the food wonderful, and the decorating most intriguing. We would definitely stay again.

Delightful people! Great history and stories. We stayed at the separate house (Anne "room") -- most spacious. Beautiful. Breakfast was variety yet unpretentious. Delicious. Lots of parking. Enjoyable hiking adjacent.
