Brenda was an excellent hostess. We frequent bed and breakfast locations every few months and the Bella Frattoria was definitely a welcoming, relaxing place to stay for the weekend with the cost being very reasonable. Breakfasts were delicious and we really enjoyed being right next door to a winery which we enjoyed on Saturday evening. Having Netflix available at the B&B was a new perk to experience for us and we enjoyed watching 5 movies this weekend. Highly recommended, check it out!
This place is incredible! It's a little piece right out of history. It is incredibly clean and very accommodating as well. Priscilla and Siri really make you feel at home and welcomed. The breakfast is always incredible and the whole facility is immaculate! There is no other B&B my wife and I would rather go. We have stayed here multiple times and we highly recommend it!
Everything about this B and B was outstanding from the staff to the owner. It is truly the most beautiful place I have every seen. The place is so beautiful!! A real gem in such a small community. The food was wonderful too. I was I could give it 10 stars. Wonderful experience!!
We chose this fantastic place as a halfway point on our trip. Siri was extremely accommodating and we enjoyed talking with her. Nancy and Siri were there in the morning and we had a great breakfast and more conversation. The room was very comfortable and the house is beautifully restored. We plan on coming back as the area had some interesting places to visit and we could not ask for a better bed and breakfast!
This little spot was just what the doctor ordered after a hard day of travel! Everything was just perfect...everything. The next morning I woke to one of the best breakfasts I've ever had including farm fresh eggs that tasted like they were made with cream. Thank you so much Brenda!
Truly a "Beautiful Farmhouse" tucked away in the countryside but not too far from the bustle of suburban life. The house has be carefully restored with a focus on visitor comforts without losing the charm of the original home. Both of us immediately thought of our grandparent's homes when we went upstairs to our bedroom.Brenda's breakfasts were wonderful. Using many locally sourced ingredients, each day's offering was a delight to enjoy. Close to vineyards, orchards, and numerous farm markets, we left for home with a trunk full of produce and goods from the local farmers.
This truly is a "Beautiful Farmhouse" tucked away in the countryside just outside the busy city life. This lovely restored farmhouse reminded both of us of our Grandparents homes. The rooms with their fireplaces provided a gentle warmth on the frosty November evenings.Brenda's breakfasts were a delight. Using locally sourced ingredients, Brenda crafted wonderful meals each morning. This is a great place to connect with agriculture; local vineyards, orchards, farm markets and road side stands abound. Our car went home with a trunk full of wonderful produce and fruit.A very relaxing time away from our crazy busy world.
This "Beautiful Farmhouse" is tucked away just outside the bustle of the cities of Youngstown and Canfield. As both a lover and owner of old houses, this beautifully re-purposed farmhouse was a delight to stay in while visiting family. The staircase to the upstairs reminded us of our grandparents homes. The bedrooms were nicely furnished with the fireplace providing just the perfect warmth for the chilly evening. Close to vineyards, orchards, and farm markets, this is the perfect place to connect with our rural heritage. Brenda's breakfasts were wonderful. Using many locally sourced ingredients, Brenda provided nourishment that kept us going much of the day. Those blueberry muffins were absolutely delightful. Our weekend was filled with many wonderful memories, with Bella Fattoria among our best.
Our group had a special occasion event at the "mansion". It was a wonderful experience. The food was beautiful and delicious...the service was outstanding...the venue couldn't have been more unique. Who would believe such a "diamond" exists in this small community. Highly recommend this neat place.
Made from scratch breakfast was outstanding and mostly locally sourced ingredients. Locally produced eggs, doughnuts, fruit, wine... Very authentic and very accommodating. The local winery is walking distance, but far enough away that the cars, music or people are not an issue. In fact you can hear just enough of the music to enjoy it on the back porch over the crackling of the fire pit and they wrap up early about 9-930. The cleanliness is immaculate and attention to detail is impressive. Although it is an old farm house everything is new and of very high quality (i.e. sheets, showers, beds, couches, etc...) The house can easily sleep 6 and it is conveniently located just a few minutes outside of Canfield where you can find plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and local parks and hiking. Owners are operators and excellent hosts.
My boyfriend and I spent a glorious afternoon, evening and morning at Bella Fattoria. We arrived on a Sunday at about 4:30, only 1/2 hour before the Mastropietro Winery was closing. We had been on a whirlwind tour of several cities 3 days prior, so we were looking forward to a relaxing evening. Our hosts, Brenda and Bob, met us at the winery and enjoyed some wine, cheese and great conversation on the patio. Then they showed us the beautiful B&B. We were blown away by the simple elegance of the home and the comfortable, serene rooms. We happened to be the only people staying that evening, so we had the house to ourselves. We enjoyed dinner on the back deck and the fireflies in the vineyard after dark. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and filling; we definitely did not leave hungry and we were sent on our way with fruit and muffins to go! We highly recommend this B&B - the comfort, beautiful setting and hospitality is outstanding!
We stayed at this bed and breakfast in April and absolutely loved it! The rooms were clean and the house was charming. The beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms were beautiful. When we arrived there was a cheese and fruit plate waiting in the room for us. We walked to the winery located near the property and enjoyed drinks, snacks, and live music. When we returned to the B and B, we had a fire on the deck overlooking the vineyards. The breakfast was delicious and the innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating! I have already booked this house for a girls weekend in October and will definitely be back again. We enjoyed everything about our stay and would recommend this property for those looking for a romantic getaway or fun weekend with friends or family.
My mother and I spent three wonderful days at the Bella Fattoria Bed and Breakfast in June 2015. We were greeted by Brenda who made us feel very welcomed and at home. The room was beautifully decorated with a King size bed and the jacuzzi in the spacious bathroom was absolutely awesome. The view overlooking the winery was very nice and we enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. We came during the week due to my vacation schedule so we missed the music and events at the winery next door. The weekends I hear are full of activities from corn hole to enjoying the different wines that are made at the winery. The breakfast's I have to say, were wonderful with fresh fruit, farms fresh eggs, delicious bacon, pancakes and home made jam. Yum! Brenda also prepared a snack in the evening with cheese and crackers, fruit and chips. We also got chocolates. I give the Bella Fattoria a five star rating. My mother who is 80 was very pleased with our accommodations and wanted me to thank Brenda for taking such good care of us. This trip was a mother and daughter get away. Would I come back? Yes, for sure! We will be back for another stay. Thank you so much Brenda for all of your hard work. May God Continue to Bless You and Your Bed and Breakfast! :-)
We needed accommodations that were nearby due to some unexpected circumstances. Fortunately for us that the Sebring Mansion had openings. It was an unexpected surprise. The rooms were excellent, the staff was friendly and helpful and the meals were outstanding. We will definitely be staying there again.
We were driving from Connecticut to Illinois and needed a half way point to stop. When we were planing our trip we were looking online and came across this jewel. I myself create stained glass art and fell in love with the Columbiana's windows...a must see. Paul and Susie were a delight and the morning breakfast was a perfect send off. Can't wait to come back.
My husband and I desperately needed a quiet, restful place to get away from our hurried and frazzled lives. We found Columbiana Inn to be just the place we needed when we visited in July. It was our first time staying in a B&B and we were impressed with the cleanliness and unique decorative style of every room. We stayed in the Sylvia Stern suite and enjoyed plenty of "down time" on the front porch swing. Our hosts, Susie and Paul, quickly became treasured friends and we returned to the Columbiana Inn again recently and stayed in the Anita Marie suite. Our hosts served a full scrumptious and hearty breakfast again prepared from scratch and we enjoyed meeting other guests while we ate. We plan on coming back soon and maybe we'll stay in the Loren Wilson loft next time. No doubt about it, we're hooked on the Columbiana Inn and after you visit once, you will be too!
We were greeted at our car and our bags were taken to our room, while we sipped champagne and checked in, took a tour of the mansion and settled into our room which had a fruit basket and bottle of champagne. That was followed with afternoon tea and then evening champagne and hors d'oeuvre. The grounds and Inn are beautiful and the rooms are spacious and the staff is more than willing to accommodate your every request. I highly recommend and plan on returning and using the spa, which I heard from other guests was also wonderful.
My sister and I chose to stay at the Columbiana Inn for the night after our day at the Shaker woods festival. Upon our arrival we were graciously welcomed by Susie & Paul Bissell the innkeepers of such a captivating establishment. I have stayed at several B&B's, but never Wowed as much as we were during our stay. Everywhere you looked was like finding treasure and there was a story behind it all. So quite and restful. And the breakfast they served at our convenience was awesome . Thank you Susie,Paul and Kim for your hospitality and making us feel like your friends. We will return.
I took my mother to Buhl Mansion to celebrate her 77th birthday and it was absolutely delightful. I would highly recommend the spa, the staff made us feel like royalty, the mansion was impeccably clean, the food wonderful and the hospitality far exceeded my expectations. The grounds are also breathtaking. If you are looking for a place to have a celebration, feel pampered or give yourself a gift - go to Buhl Mansion! DD
My boyfriend and I stayed for a night visit for our one year anniversary. We were welcomed at the door and they parked our vehicle and took our bags up to our room while we checked in. We were offered champagne right away and had a little tour of the place. We had arrived a bit early so were shown to our room and had some time to get acclimated and ready for our mani/pedis. The room was amazing! I wanted to take it home with us! There was a fireplace, jacuzzi, tv with relaxing music already on, champagne and snacks, down comforters/pillows, and two robes and slippers for us to change into. We headed down to the spa area and had our mani/pedi treatments. I wish I could remember the names of the two ladies we had to recommend because I just loved them! After, we relaxed in the sauna for a bit before "tea time". Tea time was a cute idea where we went back upstairs and served tea and finger foods. We took the time to look around more and enjoy photo albums of previous weddings that were held there. After tea time we headed up to our room and got ready for dinner. There was a brief "champagne toasting" before we left where we met another couple and chatted which was nice. There were many options for dinner. The Tara restaurant, which is recommended, sounded very lovely but we wanted to explore around and decided to walk down to the original Quaker Steak and Lube which was fun. When we got back we had the rest of the night to do whatever we wanted. There was a paper for breakfast options to fill out and leave under the door. We decided to have it room serviced in the morning. After breakfast, we headed down to the steam room then had facials and massages. Again, I wish I could remember all the names of who we had because they were all very friendly and professional. We were served lunch and a dessert right after which was delicious! Checkout time was at noon and we had just enough time to fit everything in perfectly. We loved it here and definitely recommend to visit!
It's the most wonderful time of the year to stay at the Columbiana Inn Bed & Breakfast! We arrived a couple of days before Christmas - our second visit within two months and it was every bit as "magical" as our first stay. Paul & Susie truly have the gift of hospitality...a warm welcome as they genuinely invite you to come in and make yourself at home. We slept in the Loft on our first visit and this time in Sylvia's Room. Beautifully decorated, the rooms are large & spacious, yet comfortable & cozy. Experienced a great night's sleep. Breakfast was also a real treat. Plenty of delicious food prepared with Paul & Susie's own special touch. Loved waking up to the smell of freshly brewed local coffee. We now look forward to our trips out East because it gives us the opportunity to stay at this very special Inn!
My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and my birthday at Buhl Mansion. From the moment we entered the mansion until we left the service was 5star all the way. The staff met our every need and desire. The champagne flowed freely all weekend. It was great to be pampered and cared for and the staff did it all with a smile. We will return in the near future for more pampering.
Through the luxury of our travel addiction (4 months every year for 15 years) we have documented almost 150 B&Bs of every type. Last week in Sebring Ohio,we found THE BEST. The SEBRING MANSION INN & SPA. It was absolutely a mindblowing "10". Perfect in every respect. Food,restoration,and hospitality were outstanding! Inn keeper Lynne Biery provided, us a truly "BUCKET LIST EXPERIENCE". Dr. Arthur Siml
This B & B has it all. Susie and Paul are gracious hosts. Their home is beautiful and their breakfasts are to die for! The rooms were clean and the beds and bedding were the most comfortable I've ever slept in! I lacked for nothing, didn't want to leave and look forward to a return visit!
I returned to Columbiana with my sister for her second 25th class reunion and for the annual fair. Our stay was wonderful and I can't say enough good about Susie & Paul. They even supplied us with a blanket for the hayride as someone didn't come prepared for the cool evening. The breakfasts were A+ with many of the innkeepers specialties. It was a wonderful experience. Why would you stay anywhere else?
The stay was absolutely amazing, the staff its self made it worth the trip! They were accommodating and so friendly! The area was quaint and charming as was the hotel grounds, the hotel was full of history and humming with hospitality! I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK! Features of Hospitality include: Valet parking not having to carry my luggage to my room a class of champagne upon arrival a tour of the facility champagne waiting in our room cheerful descriptions of the town and things to do nearby TEA TIME! delicious snacks coffee and tea! Mingle TIME! more champagne! the ability to tour unoccupied rooms and finally the amazing breakfast in bed! I LOVE THIS PLACE!
We normally stay at the hotel in town when coming home to visit. We were given a gift certificate for a night stay and ended up staying two nights at the bed and breakfast. We were blown away with the hospitality and friendliness of Paul and Suzy. This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the wonderful breakfast and morning conversations!
