The Rossville Inn

117 South B Street , Hamilton, OH 45013 USA (Show map)


Step through the tallest door in town to a warm welcome from the whimsical chef and your hosts, Jackie and Bill Groth. Discuss with them, your preference for a made to order breakfast. It will be prepared in the newly renovated kitchen which is finished with period cabinetry, marble and granite counter-tops, and state-of-the-art appliances. Relax in the privacy of your room, or in the common rooms, which include a parlor, billiard room, and formal dining room. Unwind, meet new friends, play pool, enjoy board games or curl up with a good book. For a change of pace, take time for refreshments in the gazebo and a stroll through the gardens. Influences of both the past and the present are apparent in the guest rooms. Eleven and a half foot ceilings, original hard-wood floors, and decorative woodwork have been preserved. Furnishings and décor are reminiscent of the home's historic past, while modern conveniences have been incorporated in the newly installed bathrooms. Each room is equipped with telephone, cable television, wiring for computer and fax, writing desk, and a private bath.

Wonderful B&B!

4.8 on April 27, 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Rossville Inn and recommend it to others as a homey alternative to chain hotels. I was offered a glass of wine and snack of cheese and crackers when I arrived, which I gladly accepted. And the breakfasts alone were reason enough to return! I had a spacious room in the front of the house with a great mattress. The traffic noise was a bit much in the early hours, so opt for a room in the rear of the house if possible. I used it as a base when visiting my daughter at Miami Univ. for Mom's weekend (about 20 minutes by car) and it worked out fine. I highly recommend it!

A true gem and stellar B&B experience !

A true gem and stellar B&B experience ! Jackie and Bill, are wonderful hosts - genuinely welcoming, engaging, and accommodating in every way! Impeccable rooms, fabulous organic gourmet breakfasts, evening glass of wine - good wine! Coffee to your taste (extra strong, whole milk, real cream, etc., no problem). We selected Rossville for a medical vacation - to be with a family member for surgery at nearby Fort Hamilton Hospital. Both Bill and Jackie are superb chefs. Bill enthusiastically accommodated our need for a very early and substantial breakfast, including superb coffee 'to go'. Bill's wonderful breakfast ended up being our only meal of the day, and we cannot thank them enough for their hospitality and kindness. Jackie is equally talented, and was equally receptive to letting us sleep in later than usual the following day - she shared morning conversation with us and an outstanding recipe which we can't wait to make at home! We travel frequently and are quite discriminating of the quality of accommodations, food, and the overall experience at the places we stay. I would highly recommend Rossville Inn for any travel occasion - weekend getaway, family visit, stay-cation, theatre, college visits, ... It's worth making a reason to stay here, just to experience their genuinely welcoming and sincere hospitality.

Felt We Were Cheating Them

5 on January 10, 2014

We felt we weren't paying enough!!! (Not that we want them to raise their rates because we want to stay there again!) Was one of the most welcoming and relaxing place we have been. More like our home than any other place we had stayed. The breakfasts were gourmet. Jackie and Bill were amazingly beautiful people, who are beautiful hosts. The dogs were hilarious and we loved them a lot!!!

Stay on October 4-6, 2013.

Elegant and Comfortable

We were enchanted with our surroundings, the food and the kindness of Jackie and Bill. Every part of our stay exceeded our expectations. The bed was comfortable, and even though we were there in the heat of summer, it was cool and lovely in the house. They were solicitous of our needs and yet gave us plenty of privacy. And we were amazed by the breakfasts, don't turn them down -- they are fantastic!!!!

Nice B&B

Nice B&B and very clean. Lovely sitting area outside but take your bug spray!

Bad Faith

4.2 on August 08, 2013

I called a man named William on the main business inquiring about rooms for the weekend. Even though he was at an airport, he told me to set a reservation so I gave him payment information in good faith that I just made one. He told me he would send me an email later this evening. He informed me later that evening (after 11 pm) that his wife already had booked the room and that I should come back another time. He never once apologized for the error, in fact he came off as condescending. Every time we got in contact with each other I felt like he was trying to get me off the phone as fast as he could. I saw the many great comments that others had written and I'm sorry to write that I had a very different experience.

Great location

Jackie and Bill were wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were terrific. They were very accommodating and friendly. A bit of information about the area left in our room would have been helpful. Gorgeous garden!

Wonderful Place

About the innkeepers

Jackie and Bill Groth moved in the week before Christmas in 1991. They too had been captured by the charm and potential of this home. Aided by a preservation architect, contractor, and friends, The Rossville Inn was extensively renovated and opened for business as a Bed & Breakfast in 1998.
