I came across The Atwood House on a google search. I surprised my husband with a weekend away just the 2 of us. It wasn't until after I booked the reservation that I read the reviews. I was even more psyched upon reading all of them. I didn't realize that Chillicothe was such a gorgeous little town. There are tons of Beautiful Historical homes, one after another. Along with a nice Historical downtown area. Upon arriving I was in awe of the structure. Bills nephew was there to let us in. Once inside it took my breath away. The house in impeccable. His nephew is very professional and gave us the tour of the house. Bill has restored it to its Natural Beauty. We stayed in the Governors Suite and were very pleased. It has 12ft ceilings that appear even taller than that. It has a fabulous 7ft Clawfoot Bathtub, which I took total advantage of. It also has a private 2nd story balcony. The entire house is very clean and smells pleasant. There is a wonderful Flower Garden in the back of the house along with fountains and lawn furniture. Bill prepares a delicious Breakfast and serves it to you, along with lovely china. He will sit and have coffee with you while you finish. He is such a down to earth and friendly man. He is very knowledgeable on the History of the house and the area. He will also tell you about his past adventures. I can't say enough about the house and the owner. I am already planning my next trip down. If you are looking for a Bed & Breakfast, do yourself a favor and stay at the Atwood House. You won't be disappointed. Make yourself a reservation at the Old Canal Smokehouse. Its only a few minutes away. We liked it better than Paula Deens Restaurant in Savannah, GA. Also checkout the Sumburger Diner. Its a cute vintage diner with great food.
