The rooms are just beautiful. Rich and Bob are wonderful hosts that make you feel like family. Its perfectly situated for a quick taxi ride or Uber to anywhere you need to go. There is really no where else I'd rather stay when I'm traveling to KY.

I had a nice stay in this well-taken care of house, run by a helpful and informative owner who even cooked warm breakfast to order on weekends. Location is great -- near to the university and to a great café!

I was put up here by the University for an interview the next day. Be sure to look for the sign because the house itself is nondescript and you will drive right by if you aren't looking. Parking is located in the back or they will give you a pass to park on the street if you want. The proprietors... More

Four of us stayed at the Columbine B&B for one night at the tail end of our trip. The mansion was absolutely gorgeous and we found it very comfortable. Great beds, clean rooms and great company! One of us was upgraded due to some renovation on the room we had originally chosen. Rich was quite interesting and provided us an... More

What a great stay! Very comfortable. I stayed several nights during the week with my wife joining me late in the week. They were very accommodating to letting my wife join later and getting her in the house while I was at work. I was worried about the baths not attached to the room, but the provided robes made it...

Nestled in Old Louisville, the Columbine Bed & Breakfast is a fantastic place to stay. Rich, our host, attended our every need. The rooms were very comfortable, not to mention the two porches. It was conveniently located near the university, stadium, and Church Hill Downs. We would definitely go back. Ellen Holman

We taveled 15 hrs via auto and were greeted by the charming host of this B&B. Every room has a grand fire place ( sadly fire code will not allow them to be used) the floors shine , the walls hold an extensive art collection, The stained glass window on the stairs is a not to be missed glorious delight....

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!
