We had looked forward to staying at the Ruddick-Nugent House for years and when we finally were able to visit it was wonderful. The furnishings and the grounds are a delight and owner Dennis Orwin made us feel 100% at home, as well as indulging our interest in the local history and economy. We would love to visit again and...

My beautiful wife and I had such a wonderful time at this stunning home. Dennis and Joyce are gracious hosts. We enjoyed our conversation and the great food at breakfast. The suite we stayed in was large and very cozy. This is definitely the place to stay at in the Columbus area. We cant wait to come back in the... More

Luanna and I stayed here and enjoyed it. The giant home is interesting. We were the only guests on our mid week stay so it was quiet. Facilities were very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was wonderful. Innkeeper Dennis was interesting and full of info and answers to our questions about the home. Will stay again. Would like to see... More

We could not have asked for anything more at this B&B. The inn is beautiful and very comfortable. Rooms were large with every modern amenity, but with antiques and little details that keep the flavor of times past. The weather was rainy and dismal or we would have enjoyed the outdoor area too with many plantings, fountains and seating areas.... More

We wanted to visit Columbus, IN for some time to view its architecture. We generally stay in B & B's on our trips and chose the RUDDICK-NUGENT HOUSE. The house and room was great, the owner-host made us feel very welcomed and the breakfast was well done on both days. I would recommend staying here.

Relaxing weekend in Columbus, IN. The B&B was excellent. Very charming and comfortable. The Inn Keepers are very friendly and helpful with recommendations. We enjoyed touring the Miller House, Ice Cream Sodas at Zaharakos and walking (0.7mi) to Zwanzig Z's for pizza and beer. FYI breakfast is very formal, sit down dining with the other guests and inn keepers. There... More

Nestled into an old neighborhood, this home stands majestic among the homes. It's beautifully restored to reflect the splendor of days gone by. Years of labor have gone into this home to bring it to the standards bed and breakfasts. Innkeeper very knowledgeable on the home, and the history of Columbus. Weather permitting you can enjoy time on the front... More

Bed and Breakfast offering rooms each with private bathrooms on second floor. Owners are knowledgeable with local tips and guidance for visiting area, as well as conversational about the history of the home and the former residents' role in local history. A highlight of the stay was the breakfast which offered a wide variety of homemade seasonal, prepared dishes such... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Ruddick-Nugent House. The room was very clean, all of the necessities were provided, and our hosts were warm and welcoming. Breakfast the next morning was a delight -- a tasty meal and engaging conversation. All in all this was an experience we would gladly repeat!
