Friends recommended this lovely B & B as a stop on our recent road trip. Not only will we thank them but we highly recommend this beautiful place to others making the trip to Columbus, IN. For us, this trip was an added bonus at the end of our long trip from Wisconsin for a week in the Smoky Mountains... More

We enjoyed our comfortable overnight stay in William's room. It was spacious and immaculate. The gardens are beautiful. Breakfast was excellent. It was delicious with the most enjoyable conversation with Dennis and his guests. We will definitely come back when we are in Columbus!

We enjoyed our stay at the Ruddick-N House with Dennis & Joyce very much. The character of the house, the beautiful gardens and the splendid breakfast will not be forgotten soon. We thank them for their hospitality.

We stayed for our anniversary. It was comfortable and breakfast was great! Joyce and Dennis helped us get the last two tickets to the Miller House tour. Thanks so much! House, grounds and history were fun to explore.

Stayed here for a work-related conference. Fabulous setting, very comfortable home with great historical interest. The room was quite private, quiet, and comfortable. The hosts were flexible and friendly with an early breakfast prepared for me.

My wife and I were in Columbus, IN for a night and debating between this and a hotel and I am extremely pleased we chose the Ruddick-Nugent House. The rooms were large and very comfortable. The bathtub, fireplace, and balcony were very charming. The hosts were extremely friendly, and good cooks to boot. We ended up spending the entire morning... More
