“A bit disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

The owners were friendly,room was very clean,common areas nice and it was nice to have access to complimentary water,soft drinks,cookies and popcorn. The ambiance of the decorations weren't appealing in the Sycamore Room. The towels had a funny old musty odor that was so bad I couldn't use them. Thank goodness there were a couple of fluffy white ones folded on a shelf which smelled much better. I didn't know how to approach the owners about the towels...I didn't want to embarrass them. We were given the times of breakfast but it was not emphasized that if you didn't show up right at that exact time that you would miss it totally! She threw it out! All the B&B's I have stayed in have a time frame that breakfast is available. All she had left was the yogurt dish she had served. About 10 minutes later, she comes in to ask us if we want her to make pancakes but said they probably wouldn't be as nicely done as they were earlier. We said no. I felt if she really wanted to make us the pancakes she would have offered right away not several minutes later. We didn't even get a small refund for having missed the breakfast. The room was pricey for what you got anyways. So all in all, it wasn't a satisfying stay.

"The 1875 Homestead B&B" is well documented for serving a plentiful, high quality breakfast. After 1 hour and 20 minutes, it`s no longer a quality breakfast and we can not serve it and still maintain the level of quality we provide our guests.
We do apologize to these 2 ladies and offer them a 1 night free visit, in any other room available, if they wish to return.

I can't say enough good about this B&B. The hosts Manuel and Nancy Gunn are so friendly and hospitable. We loved that they socialized with the guests. It made it so much more special than staying in a hotel. The Oak Room that we stayed in was beautiful and huge. I loved the open kitchen that we were able to visit for water, pop, coffee, tea and popcorn 24 hours a day. Oh and the breakfast...... It was out of this world. I have never tasted stuffed French toast that was so good. The yogurt that Manny designed in the morning was beautiful and such a special touch. It was such a great experience that it made if difficult to return to the regular world. It was so relaxing. We will definitely go back again and again. It's an incredible value for the price.

My husband and I had never been to a Bed and Breakfast before, but based on the reviews on tripadvisor, we thought we would try it out, and we are so happy that we did! Manny and Nancy were incredibly hospitable. We loved the history of the house and the ambience. My husband and I spent quite sometime on the rockers watching hummingbirds, an experience you'd never get at a hotel. Comfortable bed, super clean, I could tell the house was well-loved. Breakfast was generous, and delicious. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway!

You will never have more hospitable hosts than Manuel and Nancy Gunn. Their warmth was sincere and they treasure the house and grounds. Nancy is an expert chef and bountiful! The grounds are so beautiful and the rooms so comfortable and roomy. They even have bonfires in the evening for the guests to sit around.
We were the only guests at the time and electricity went out due to a storm....they invited us to go to Columbus (a town that had power) to try a new resturant We went and had a good time. All in all we were sorry to leave.

By far Nancy and Manuel are the best hosts of any establishment that we have ever encountered in all of our travels. This was our second time to stay with them and it was like meeting old friends again. Their Bed & Breakfast is beyond 5 star, the property is beautifully maintained and house so comfortable and is tastefully decorated, the rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. The attention to detail, such as chocolates by your bed, big soft fluffy towels, nice big pillows and the beds are so lush, and they even bake special evening snacks to go along with the coffee, tea or cold drinks that they furnish. The breakfast is like your Mother or Grandmother may have cooked for you, though probably much more elaborate, they pay attention to different diet needs and try to accomodate those needs. We cannot say enough about these hosts and their B&B except you must try it, we know you will love it too.

Room Tip: Call early they book up quickly

My husband and I just returned from a get-away trip to Nashville. We have stayed at several b&b's over the last few years, but none can compare with the 1875 Homestead and Manuel and Nancy! From being greeted at the door with smiles and then getting a tour of their lovely home and being told "make yourself at home" everything about our two nights was wonderful. The house is decorated beautifully and the rooms are very welcoming! The bed and pillows make you want to sleep in late....however...don't do that cause you don't want to miss the amazing breakfast that Nancy has waiting for you! It was so nice to grab a cup of coffee and head out to the enclosed porch, sit in the rocker and watch the fire burn and listen to some wonderful music until Manuel said "let's go time to eat".

Although this was our first time at the the homestead it will definately not be our last visit. I want to experience every season in this lovely home! The 3 1/2 hr. drive from Ohio is well worth it when we know what is waiting for us in Nashville. By the time we left their home we felt we had made two new friends and look forward to our return and renewing our friendship again.
