We came to Ohio for a family reunion. My cousin recommended Homestead House, and we loved everything about it. The decor is wonderful, breakfast delicious, nutritious, and even came with a yummy sweet treat. Rooms were unique, spacious and very comfortable. Relaxing on the lovely front porch was great. Deanne was a gracious hostess, we loved that she sat & visited with us at breakfast. The warm, homemade cookies she gave us when we checked out were the "icing on the cake". We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Ohio. Judi & John - California

Very impressed!

Loved the place! High quality everything! Very modern upgrades in an historical framework. Linens notably fine! Door hardware and bath fixtures exceptional! Hot water immediate and plenty. Front porch is a bit of small town heavenly charm. Deanna and assistants very helpful and friendly. Food excellent, interesting and plentiful! Lots to see and do within walking distance. Nothing was lacking. Art and Laurie from Canada

We love this place!

We travel to Ohio to see family every year and we just love staying at the Homestead House, The home is so comfortable, clean, charming, and we just love the special prepared breakfasts. We are so looking forward to our Ohio visit this year. Thanks for a wonderful experience each year!

One of the Very Best!

This is clearly one of the best B&B's in Ohio and possibly the country.

We were in town for a family wedding. My daughter and son-in-law arrived last minute from the airport and Deanna grabbed the iron and touched up the tux shirt while we scurried around to get ready. The accommodations were fabulous! Very quaint, charming vintage touches, but with first-class bathroom facilities. Breakfast was amazing! The location is fun, as you can walk around downtown (also charming) Willoughby. Staff are so accommodating and friendly. Loved it!!!

Charming, Comfortable, Friendly and Delicious

We came to Cleveland to visit family. Next time we come it will be to visit family and Homestead House. The place has been lovingly restored and is very special. Our room was very comfortable, just the perfect balance between Victorian charm and modern amenities. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were wonderful. My husband posted pictures on Facebook of what we had to eat each morning and all of our friends were jealous. Deanna said running a B&B was her passion and it shows.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your lovely B&B! We loved every moment of excitement and peacefulness. Our BEDrooms were charming & our BREAKFASTs were delicious. The "extras" made all the difference in our visit. Thank You! Ronnie and Jan - South Carolina
