I felt like I was at the home of a friend.

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.

Good value & great hospitality!

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!

Wonderful Place to Stay

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.

Gorgeous house & wonderful hosts

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!

We arrived early, but Miss Shelley and the staff were very courteous and let us check-in early. They made our stay perfect.

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.
