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

After reading several of the other reviews about the delicious breakfasts, I have to say that our group of 8 was shortchanged. We were served 1 1/2 biscuits with gravy (did not taste homemade) and 2 sausage links (seemed microwaved) with a dish of fresh fruit as our B & B special breakfast. When Sarah the innkeeper was asked why... More

When you visit the unique architectural jewels of Columbus, Indiana, this is a place where you can put yourself into the shoes of the influential lords and ladies of yesteryear...... Climb up the master suite at the top of the building (W.G. Irwin's Suite). Write a quick note to your well-heeled friends while sitting in the original leather chair and... More

My wife and I stayed there for our 30th wedding anniversary. Sarah was the innkeeper and she was wonderful. Very prompt and helpful. She prepared an excellent breakfast for us. The grounds are just as amazing as the house itself. Very well maintained. It was fun and easy to imagine what it must have been like to live in that... More
