My wife and I stayed here for two nights on a weekend getaway trip for our anniversary. The home and gardens are absolutely stunning and peaceful. The home is incredible condition and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean. The woodwork and detailing in the architecture of the home make it so unique. We enjoyed a lot of time...

From the moment we entered the front iron gate, the stately mid-1800s home (mansion) took us back in time. Each room with its magnificent burl wood interior architecture had its own treasures to share. My favorite was the library. Stayed in the Erwin & Xenia Miller 2BR suite with wonderfully comfortable beds and modern conveniences but with appropriately old decor... More

If you're in Columbus to take the architectural tours, you need to stay either here or the Hotel Indigo (or both, if you're in town 2 nights). The B&B is an architectural gem itself; the gardens are particularly lovely in spring. The rooms are very spacious although our bath was quite small and the shower gave us a faceful of... More

Went hiking in Brown County and stayed at this Bed and Breakfast the next town over. Beautiful home. Even though it was early Spring and not much was in bloom, the gardens were lovely. Everything was clean and the mattress was VERY comfortable. Our Hostess was very welcoming and accomidating and the food was excellent. I would go again if... More

We stayed at the Inn for our first anniversary, and what a perfect spot! You feel like the really own the place during your time there. As soon as we walked in we were treated to a tour of the home and told we could wander as we pleased, as when we got to the exquisite library we were told... More

We stayed at the Inn in the J.I. and Xenia Miller Suite for 4 days and it was wonderful! We found all of the comforts from home that we needed. The hospitality of the staff was overwhelming. The gardens were kept up beautifully as well. Some of the standouts were: wine hour at 5pm everyday. It was nice to grab... More

I stayed here with my mom in the J.I. and Xenia Miller Suite. It was a birthday present for her. The Inn is very centrally located, and is 100% completely as it was in 1910!!!! It's BEAUTIFUL!!!!! If you have the least bit appreciation of antiques or history, you will LOVE this place. We just walked around and talked, and... More

Throughout my trip through Indiana, I stayed at about half a dozen B&Bs, but this one was worth a glowing review. First, it's perfectly located, within walking distance to almost all the architectural landmarks of Columbus (which in itself is quite a marvelous destination.) Second, the gardens! Oh my gosh, the gardens. The perfect place to rest, to reflect, to... More

Unbelievably beautiful property. I could have sat in the gardens for days. Every single thing in the house is appropriate for the time period and in perfect condition, down to the plumbing and electrical fixtures. The entire place is an absolute treasure. I was there for a half-marathon on my 55th birthday and they accommodated me by having my specified... More

My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Irwin Gardens for a weekend (2 nights). The staff was kind, helpful and onubtrusive. Breakfast was elegant and delicious. The house and gardens are among the finest bed and breakfast properties we have ever visited. The large house is a "preservation" of a fine 20th century home, featuring the original Irwin... More
