What a great place to be. What a great people to meet. Feels like home. Tastes like home. Looks like home. I have been to many hotels all around the world, but nowhere I didn't have that feeling. Looking forward to come again.

We found this B&B on the internet when planning a long weekend in Louisville - first time visitors. This is a wonderfully preserved "Old Louisville-style" home that is decorated with period pieces and collections from the host's world travels. There is even a baby grand piano in the front room to which I helped myself one morning. We were warmly... More

In our first visit to Louisville, my wife booked us into this charming historic B&B. As we both appreciate history and art, this lovingly restored mansion exceeded all of our expectations. It's a grand dame of an established neighborhood, and to walk through the front door is to step back into the rich history of the area. Since our trip... More

This house is a dream com true. It has so much history and you're walking like into a dream. Richard is a great and interesting host. Rooms are gorgeous, breakfast is over-delicious and everything is so clean and neat. There are NO minors in this B&B. We are very demanding guests...

This was our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted to go away without traveling far from our city Lexington, KY. Columbine in Louisville, KY was highly recommended by a co-worker and I agree with everything she said about the Columbine. The home and garden is so lovely and well maintained. The room that we stayed in ( the Austin Room)... More

We loved the house, the yard was so beautiful with all the trees, flowers and waterfalls. Rich was an excellent host and we enjoyed our breakfast. Rooms were well maintained. Will stay again if we are ever in the area.

Rick May was the perfect host! He was there when we needed him, gave excellent advice on restaurants and entertainment, and unobtrusive when we were content to just enjoy his lovely home. The Home is fabulously beautiful! The bed so comfy, room was warm, hot, hot water in the bath.... everything just right. It was our first stay at a... More

Thanks for your kind words. What more could a guy ask for...engaging, respectful guests who bring me homemade cherry strudel! Talk about a job with fringe benefits. I hope you can stay again soon. Hopefully, next time you are town the weather will be equally accommodating! By the way, I wanted to note that we are only 15 blocks from... More

Three words - nutella french toast. That alone I would say is reason enough to stay. Quite honestly, this place is absolutely "amazeballs" as was the adulation used by my friend, Gavin throughout our party's stay. I loved every minute I spent here. Especially sitting out on the second level veranda with a good book and a cup of tea.... More

My husband and I stayed here in celebration of our 15th anniversary. We could not have chosen a better place! This was our first experience staying at a bed and breakfast and it was wonderful.

We spent one night in Louisville this weekend, and echo all of the positive sentiments and experiences of your other reviewers concerning Columbine! The house is beautifully restored and maintained. Rich is an informative, solicitous, attentive, and very engaging host. We stayed in the Magnolia Room on a very hot, humid night and couldn't have been more comfortable. Comfortable bed... More
