What a gracious, amazing step back in time. Excellent location and service. We walked to our architecture tours and restaurants. The breakfasts were magnificent -- savory crepes one day, bananas foster French toast the next. Just perfect.

My husband and I recently stayed overnight for our 20th wedding anniversary. We fell in love with the place at first sight. What a beautifully kept piece of history! We stayed on the third floor, which was exquisite, and the shower was quite the centerpiece :) Even though the gardens were not in bloom, we were blown away by the... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night on part of our honeymoon in the 3rd floor suite. This place is so beautiful, and we loved every part of it. The Inn Keeper, Sarah, was so professional and courteous, and the breakfast that we had was incredible! We will definitely be back here in the future!

Having returned to my hometown for a family reunion, Sarah, our hostess was so kind and obliging as she fulfilled our every whim and desire. This marvelous lady can cook! I could not believe it when she made gluten free french toast with fruit garnish actually taste good and a fluffy scrambled egg chaser to boot! It was delightful to... More

Such a historic home and super impressive family compound. The Irwin home carries significant local history and as a B&B offers visitors a rare view of the quiet, elegant life beyond the stately perimeter walls. We so enjoyed the treasures which are on display inside the home, and the beautiful 1910 gardens using hardscape elements from a garden in Pompeii,... More

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
