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

Wonderful stay!

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!

Amazing stay

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.

Charming location, lovely innkeepers

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.

6 Acres B&B is a keeper.

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.

Six Acres is a Gem
