We were delighted that Dennis and Joyce knew so much about their beloved city, both having been tour guides of the fabulous architectural sites in Columbus. In addition, the Tempurpedic mattress was heavenly, the grounds extensive, and Dennis's exhaustive, creative, and loving work has saved a historical, grand house and garden. The room was a bit odd, with a tiny... More

This was our third stay at the Ruddick-Nugent House. Dennis has thought of all the details that some innkeepers miss: good lights on BOTH sides of the bed, plenty of pillows, all the lotions and soaps and hair dryer, a small fridge upstairs with bottled water, a Keurig coffeemaker. We stayed in Lizzie's room, which is spacious and has its... More

Recently stayed one night at this B & B. Okay value for the dollars spent, but would not stay there again. The proprietors have the property up for sale, the house appears quite tired (as do they), the Victorian and other eras tchotchkes and wallpaper make the house seem overstuffed, musty, and unpleasantly old. Way too crowded bedroom with upholstery,... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our over night stay here. You can tell the owners have put A LOT of time in effort inside and out in maintaining this beautiful house over the years. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The outside grounds were some of the nicest we have seen and we have been to a lot... More

I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before so I did not know what to expect. Our stay here was far beyond my expectations and in addition a wonderful area to visit in Columbus Indiana. I called several of my friends when I got home and recommended the Ruddick-Nugent House to them as well as the wonderful sights... More

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 very much enjoyed our stay at the Ruddick-Nugent House. It was very clean and well-maintained. The room was very comfortable. We enjoyed having our own gas fireplace within our room. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was great too. The host, Dennis, was extremely helpful and welcoming. If we go to Columbus again, we will stay at this... 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
