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

Actually, I am sad to have to write this negative review. The place is charmingly appointed, but the security for guests’ vehicles is lacking. The website states, “We have guest permits available for folks that prefer to park on the street for convenience. We also have private, off-street parking behind the house.” This is misleading as one immediately thinks of... More

Let me start by saying we feel terrible that valuables were stolen from your SUV. However, I deeply regret that you chose to write a review in which you placed all the blame on us and have assumed no responsibility whatsoever. Telling readers to stay somewhere else is unfair and I believe the guests that wrote 114 positive reviews would... 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

Thanks so much for your kind words. It's not every day we get a review from a Grammy Award winning musician! The pleasure was all ours. We are looking forward to seeing you at New Year's time! All the best, Rich 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

Rich is an incredible host. I felt like a friend staying over rather than a paying guest. The house is lovely and atmospheric, the rooms very comfortable. It’s on a quiet street, yet within walking distance of the University of Louisville campus and a strip of shops, including the tasty Quill Coffee shop. Noise-sensitive people might prefer the rooms on... More

My wife and I stayed at the Columbine during a recent weekend trip to Louisville. The owners, Rich and Bob, are wonderful people and made us feel instantly at home in their sumptuous bed and breakfast. The guestrooms was large and very comfortable and overlooked the lovely garden behind the house. Breakfasts were lovely affairs with excellent food prepared by... More

I was at the Columbine on a business trip and wish I'd had the time to enjoy the property, the house itself, and the historic neighborhood. This is really a place to vacation. There were barely enough electrical plugs and desk room for me to work in the evenings, but the place is so beautiful, and the owners so delightful.... More

We use the Columbine B&B for all of our University visitors. It is such a pleasure to work with the owner for any of our needs for our guests. The B&B is always in excellent condition and beautiful inside. Located in a wonderful location with lots of beautiful homes surrounding it. We have never been disappointed with their service. Our...

We've stayed here multiple times over the years and the experience is always relaxing. Rich and Bob are the most wonderful and caring hosts. The house is gorgeous and the rooms are comfortable and better than any hotel. Louisville is a great city to visit, but the trip is all the more enhanced when you come back to your room... More
