Elliot Rose Guesthouse


“Expect the comforts of home…

experience the hospitality of friends"


814 South Clinton Street Defiance, Ohio 43512

    The Elliot Rose Guesthouse is located just a block and a half south of Historic Downtown Defiance, on the main street in town, in a neighborhood of beautiful period homes.  If you expect convenience, we have it. Located across from the Defiance Community Auditorium, within five short blocks of five churches,  and a stroll away from a locally owned full service grocery store with pharmacy, one of a kind restaurants, and specialty businesses featuring everything from antiques and local art to Bud’s famous home-baked pies, our guesthouse will serve as the perfect ‘home base’ while still being close to everything you need to do and want to do during your stay.

    Elliot Rose Guesthouse is a bit different from most bed and breakfasts in that the house is not our home  – although we live very close.  We have designed it solely for comfortable hospitality, allowing us to welcome you as we would dear friends, and enabling you to thoroughly relax – this house will be your home, for one day or several, for one week or more, whatever your needs.

Guest Reviews

"Beautiful! The style is cohesive & welcoming. The towels are amazing, like fluffy cashmere... and the soaking tub? Wow! The smell of fresh-baked scones in the morning was heaven, with a taste to match - especially loved the lime-coconut-pineapple-macadamia - yum"
