Welcome to The Benninghofen House!

Located in the historic Dayton Lane neighborhood in Hamilton, Ohio,  the house was built by Christian and Anna Benninghofen in 1892. It features intricate woodwork, beautiful fireplaces featuring Hamilton tile, amazing stained glass windows, Lincrusta wall coverings, a grand porch, and lush backyard.

The Benninghofen House has seen a variety of owners over the years, and was purchased by Michael and Bekki Rennick in 2015. We feel so lucky to live here! Our family resides in the first 2 floors of the home. The upper floors feature 3 rental apartments, 1 that is occupied by long-term tenants, and 2 that are available to rent for short-term vacation/work trips.  Stay in The Tower Apartment or The Garden Apartment the next time you visit Hamilton!  You can book the entire third floor for larger groups. 

In addition to participating in neighborhood events like the bi-annual Dayton Lane May Promenade, and yearly Ghost Walk in the Fall, we  open our home up to host events such as yoga, painting parties, photo and video shoots, Murder Mystery Dinners, birthday parties, showers, and weddings. Future plans an all inclusive “tiny wedding” package. Stay tuned!
