We've just completed our 2nd 2 night stay at A Touch of Italy and it was as wonderful as the first. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The breakfasts were excellent. The hosts have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We will definitely be back.

Above and Beyond

My husband and I stayed for the first time over Valentine Weekend and it was perfect. Debbie thinks of everything you may need or want while you are there. Anything you may want to know about what to do, she knows or she finds out for you. The history of the house was really interesting and the breakfast both days were top notch. Looking forward to going back this summer!

Wonderful B&B Experience

Weekend Getaway

4.6 on July 15, 2015

My husband and I went to a wedding at a nearby winery and needed a place to stay nearby. What a discovery we made! Debbie met us with our choice of Italian wines, chilled it for us and made us comfortable on the deck with a misting hose to keep us cool in the heat. She had homemade cookies for our enjoyment. The room was delightful. Everything possible was included from curling irons, makeup removers, popcorn, measured water for the coffee maker, q-tips, floss, etc. Our taxi was reserved for us to take us to the wedding. In the morning, we had breakfast by candlelight and light Italian music in the background. The breakfast started out with local fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juice, egg casserole, tomatoes and sausage. Debbie presented us with fresh herbs from the garden that went so nicely with the casserole (herb seeds were even from Italy). We were there for less than 24 hours, but felt we had made a new best friend. Great conversations! We will absolutely be back. Thank you Jim & Debbie! Can't wait to hear more stories! Kim & Paul

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at A Touch of Italy. The rooms were decorated so beautifully and we very private. The room had everything you could possibly think off. The breakfast in the morning was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and the table was so pretty. Would defiantly stay there again when in the area! Just suggested a touch of italy to a friend who will be in port clinton later this yr!.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our 3 night stay at A Tough of Italy Bed and Breakfast. The beautiful rooms are very clean, comfortable and well appointed.

A joy to stay at!

We stayed on New Years Eve 2014. The room was outstanding, bathroom as well. Deb and Jim are wonderful host! Deb made reservations for us at a local restaurant and was the perfect fit for bringing in the new year! We will be heading back to spend more time and enjoy the area attractions so. A Touch of Italy will be the only place for us to stay when we are in the area! Double thumbs up!

Best weekend

My husband and I stayed at A Touch of Italy for our birthdays. Debbie and Jim are absolutely wonderful. They took care of us and made all our arrangements. The breakfasts are phenomenal and fit for Royalty!! The rooms are decorated beautifully and very private. We went island hopping between Put-In-Bay and Kelley's Island. The Bed and Breakfast is close to downtown Port Clinton and the local bars, all within walking distance. Debbie arranged for our cab ride to Mon Ami Winery for dinner and had a bottle of chilled wine waiting for us upon our arrival. We love this place! We've been here a few times and will be back!! Can't wait to see Debbie and Jim again!!

Best Birthday Ever!!

This was our first experience with staying at a B&B and it was fantastic! From the relaxing atmosphere on the front porch, to the delicious breakfasts Deb creates each morning... This is truly a trip we will never forget! We cannot wait till we get to come back again! Thank you so much Deb and Jim for making our trip remarkable! Amanda and Gordon
