The Inn Keeper, Sarah, greeted us very warmly as we arrived, and told us much of the history of the mansion built in 1864, the family, and gave us free reign as "Lorn & Lady" of the manner for the evening. There was wine and snacks available, coffee and tea in the room and common areas, and a nice breakfast... More

This B&B is gorgeous. The house is clean and cozy. I could spend all day looking at the architecture and details from the time the house was built. Saw the impressive gardens area in the morning light. The property is beautiful. Breakfast was very nice. This was a very nice, elegant, old fashioned experience.

The Inn at Irwin Gardens is absolutely one of the most beautiful places I have stayed. The house is in amazing condition, with all period furniture and decor. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and the living areas are welcoming, they absolutely beg you to come and enjoy them. We visited Columbus with friends and I could not be more... More

The Inn is a grand old beauty and is considered by many to be the pride of Columbus. However, Sarah the Innkeeper is hard to deal with and does not go out of her way to make you feel welcome. I felt poorly treated and would hesitate to have an event there again.

Our visit was absolutely fabulous! We had a very warm welcome and tour of the house when we arrived. The house is amazing and very well kept. It felt as if we were back in time. Our room, the WG Irwin Suite is beautiful. Beautiful view of the gardens. The breakfast was fresh and hand prepared. It was delicious and... More

This late-1800's mansion has become a delightful B&B, all the more so for its current innkeeper, Sarah. All you'd expect from a gentrified manor in the middle of downtown, with Italian gardens which soothe the spirit.and delight the soul. Not inexpensive, but worth a splurge to enjoy all the other reasons you came to visit Columbus, Indiana. While you're here... More

We got married here in June 2015 and the grounds were beautiful! Although our reception was moved inside, the house is beautiful! The staff was so friendly and helpful. Brittany was very helpful in our planning the wedding!!

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!
