ARE YOU A "BED AND BREAKFAST?"
Hearthstone is not a Bed & Breakfast as such, but rather an independent, family-owned, "country inn"hotel which provides a B&B "feel" together with the luxury and amenity similar to 4 & 5-star, upscale lodging properties. You really do get the best of both at Hearthstone Inn & Suites! We are listed on many "B&B" internet search sites as well as numerous hotel/motel lodging internet search sites. In either case, we truly strive to redefine "hospitality" beyond the norm!
"WHAT QUALITY LEVEL IS HEARTHSTONE INN & SUITES?"
Hearthstone, not being a franchise, is a one-of-a-kind lodging property with very high-level quality standards. Some folks consider us to be a "big B&B", while others classify us as a bonafide "world-class hotel" in quality. We regularly host VIPs from local universities, companies, and professional organizations. From the Senator/Governor of Ohio to the traveling business guest to the family just "visiting the area", Hearthstone seeks to provide a level of quality far above the typical chain-lodging property! We've been recognized by the Travel staff of the Cincinnati Enquirer , Ohio Magazine's "Long Weekends" publication, and Fodor's© "Where to Weekend Around Ohio" (but we also make a great get-away during the week!). We might cost a tad bit more than "budget" motels, but ahhh, the Hearthstone difference! Just read some of the guest comments below!
HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM ORDINARY HOTELS / MOTELS?
Being independently managed and family-owned allows us to be really "fussy" when it comes to our level of guest service, room cleanliness, guest amenity, and down-home "warmth". Just walking into our lobby entrance you'll feel the Hearthstone difference. Step into your room and you'll immediately see the diference. Ever feel "annonymous" while registering at a national "chain" property? Not here!
WHAT KIND OF BREAKFAST DO YOU SERVE?
Our "Deluxe Contental Breakfast" is a delightful assortment of tasty items such as sausage biscuits, yogurt, seasonal fruit salad, cinnamon rolls, cheese danish, hard boiled eggs, muffins, assorted cold cereals, juices, locally roasted and custom-blended coffee, bagels, and an occasional surprise. You'll not be disappointed!
DO YOU HAVE A POOL?
As a small independent country inn based on a bed&breakfast model of service, we do not offer a pool. Most Hearthstone guests keep pretty busy with the numerous tourism attractions in our area, hiing, biking, dining out, antiquing, etc.!
WHAT DO PREVIOUS GUESTS SAY ABOUT HEARTHSTONE?
Hi! I just wanted to comment on my recent stay at the Hearthstone Inn. I travel quite a bit for business and pleasure, and your Inn was one of the nicest places at which I have ever stayed! Your staff is very friendly and helpful, and I had a fantastic time on my vacation to Ohio. I have stayed at hotels that are over twice the price, and few can match the Hearthstone in service and comfort. The breakfast is a great way to start the day, and I think your hotel is the cleanest one in the USA! Thanks again for your hospitality, and I hope to be back again someday soon!

WHAT IS YOUR SMOKING POLICY?
While the vast majority of our guests are not smokers, our front porch (or anywhere else outside our building) is available. We do not, however, offer any "smoking rooms". Violation of our smoking policy will result in a significant surcharge being levied.
ARE THERE NEARBY RESTAURANTS TO EAT AT?
In our immediate vicinity you'll find several "small town" options. Directly across the street from Hearthstone is Main Street Station family diner/restaurant, featuring great burgers, plus steak, fish, and even home-made pies (Closed Sundays). Our town also offers Colonial Pizza, Beans 'n Cream Cafe, Stony Creek Roasters cafe, Double Dragon Chinese restaurant, Subway®, and Mom & Dad's Dairy Bar. In the nearby Village of Yellow Springs (just 10 minutes away) you'll find an array of locally-popular eateries from basic to gourmet - with even some neat "organic"- type restaurants in the mix! Two of the most popular restaurants in our region are Young's Jersey Dairy and the Golden Jersey Inn , both of which feature Ohio's #1 rated ice cream. Yummmm!
DO YOU HAVE A MEETING / CONFERENCE ROOM?
Indeed we do! We can host your next small group meeting, club social, church retreat, business training retreat, special event, family reunion, graduation reception, etc. Up to 40 people can be accommodated for a sit-down activity. Even more are able to use our Conference Room if your event is "come-and-go". Hearthstone can even cater your meal, whether it is "plated & waited", buffet, or just self-serve hors d'oeuvres!

DO YOU ALLOW PETS?
We do understand that - on occasion - it is difficult to find safe & reliable "sitting" for pets while travelling. Therefore, we have established specially-designated rooms for pets and their owners. This allows us to better control for cleanliness and potential allergens - as a courtesy to other guests.
If you desire to bring your pet, please note that we limit our policy to dogs. We will provide you with a PET POLICY information sheet, along with a second, follow-up Confirmation Letter, once your initial reservation has been received.
Animal weight is restricted to 30 pounds (maximum). It is expected that your pet will be well-mannered, not a "barker", will be kept off room furnishings, must have its own portable kennel/travel cage, and does not eat children.
We require that those planning to bring pets indicate such by including this information under "SPECIAL REQUESTS" during the reservation process.
Our nominal pet fee is $15.00 for the first pet, $10.00 for each additional. Additional days after check-in are $10.00 per pet per day.
Detailed guidelines and restrictions are found in our PET POLICY.
There is no pet fee for licensed Service Dogs and are exempt from the above weight restrictions.
Evidence of guests keeping non-declared pets in their room will be surcharged $50.00 per pet/per day in ADDITION TO the standard pet fee guidelines above.
