My husband treated my to a lovely weekend at the Columbine when we went to visit our daughter. The old Victorian had me enchanted from the moment I saw it. Our lovely hosts made our trip that more enjoyable. The room we stayed in was spacious and lovely with a TV and free WiFi access. Our adjoining bathroom was equally... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend get away and were so pleased with the hospitality and delicious breakfasts! Our room overlooked the back garden and was very clean. Although the bathroom was across the hallway, it was still very convenient and private. Parking was not an issue at all. Due to such a wonderful guest experience, we... More

If you are traveling through Louisville you have to try the Columbine! Rich was very friendly from the get go and answered any and all questions I had. The property is so beautiful and well kept. I felt very comfortable and safe the entire time. I will definitely be returning!

A good friend in Louisville, Kentucky lost his spouse of 59 years last week, and I thought I should make the three hour drive to Louisville for the visitation and church service. Louisville was hosting a festival during that time, so several places had "no vacancies," but I finally succeeded in finding a reasonably priced room at a B&B in... More

Beautiful mansion that was well maintained, clean and comfortable. within walking distance of several restaurants. Parking behind the Columbine was well lighted and convenient. It is only a couple of miles from Churchill Downs.

This is a beautiful old mansion, beautifully appointed, a very short walk from the University of Louisville campus. Quiet, great breakfasts, gracious hosts. Excellent bed and mattress, always important. I will stay nowhere else when I am in the Louisville area.

Only positive things to say about my stay! I have a son that will be attending the University of Louisville for the next five years and I was looking for the closest accommodations to his dorm. My love of historical homes led me to the Columbine and I was immediately made to feel at home there! I felt very safe... More

I was invited to perform at the Louisville Guitar Festival, and I was booked to stay at the Columbine, which was walking distance to the Music School. The moment I walked in and saw the amazing woodwork and decor, I said to myself. "I've got to come back here and bring my wife!" When I met Rich the next morning... More

My girlfriend and I were in Louisville visiting her aunt, and decided to stay here because the neighborhood looked really interesting. As other reviews have stated, Rich really make this place special. My girlfriend and I instantly felt like we were close friends with him. His stories are always hilarious, and his pancakes are something else, even though he'll tell... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. Bob and I felt terrible that someone had items stolen from their vehicle. I am sorry if his anger made you and my other guests feel uncomfortable. I understand he felt violated. Bob and I did, too. But, when he arrived, he asked before he checked in if... More

A great place to stay! This was our 5th stay at the Columbine B&B and would always be our first choice when traveling to Louisville. The property is beautiful and well kept. They are very knowledgeable of Louisville and the local attractions and restaurants. The weekend breakfasts prepared by Rich are wonderful! Highly recommended!

We sure are going to miss having your family staying with us! The great part of being located next to the university is that we get to host families for up to four years. The sad part is when your child graduates, we have to say goodbye to guests who have become our friends. Over the years that your son... More
