I originally chose Harrison House Bed and Breakfast for the location, as it was just two blocks from where my children live and I wanted to try something different than a chain hotel downtown. The Harrison House was a wonderful place for my husband and I to stay and Lynn is a fabulous hostess. Our room was large with a... More

I live in Columbus, and each time my family visits from out of state, they stay with Lynn at Harrison House. On my wedding weekend in June, 5 members of my family stayed there, and I spent the night before my wedding there, too. The house is clean and comfortable and totally unique. But probably the best thing about it... More

Always enjoy having your family visit and this was especially nice because of your wedding. Glad that I had that extra room available for your pre-wedding night get-away-from-it-all and enjoy a peaceful night's rest! Looking forward to many more family visits! Cheers! Lynn More

Some B&B managers just have the perfect personality for their job. This was true at this place. The house is a bit over the top Victorian in terms of decorating, and there are numerous weeding hours that could be undertaken, but the proprietor makes one's stay very special. The rooms are cozy. We were travelling with two other couples and... More

We were traveling across the state by bicycle and selected this B&B because it was close to the bike path. Wonderful place, very casual. Lynn helped us get our bikes locked up and got out drying racks for our wet clothes. Breakfast was the best of our trip. The location is great, you can walk to the Short North for... More

The Ohio State campus was 1 easy mile away. A warm welcome upon my arrival with accommodations constantly through the weekend. Lynn is awesome!! Comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms and a yummy breakfast. The neighborhoods were perfect for running. You can't go wrong. I'm so grateful to have stayed here.

A friend and I needed to get away and chose Columbus for our escape. Fortunately we chose Harrison House B&B and it was just perfect for us. The house was charming, but the owner Lynn is what makes it extra special. We both slept like rocks and I usually suffer with insomnia. Her breakfast is worth getting downstairs for -... More

Harrison House is by far one the most charming and comfortable B&Bs I've ever stayed in - mainly thanks to Lynn, the wonderful, warm-hearted, and fun woman who runs the place. The rooms are gorgeous, clean, and well kept. The house itself is a beautiful Victorian Village style house. Guests are served a proper breakfast every day, and I got... More

Lovely to have you as a guest for 3 days before your conference. And meeting you on High Street to return your forgotten sweater allowed me to "discover" a new coffee shop. Hope your trip home was uneventful and maybe you'll be back in Columbus some day. Thanks again for staying here! Cheers! Lynn More

What a charming place. Centrally located near OSU and the High St Entertainment district. We were visiting for Equine Affair and it was less then a 10 minute Drive. A home cooked breakfast was perfect served on fine china. We stayed in the turret room clean, large with individual temperature controls. Although it is a Victorian era home the inn... More

I lucked into staying at Harrison House because all the downtown hotels in Columbus were full. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. Lynn was the consummate hostess, both responding to and anticipating needs. As a business traveler, I often shy away from bed and breakfasts. My experience at Harrison House has gone a long way to transform me... More

I think it is so much more friendly for business travelers to stay at a B&B. I do enjoy my business guests and giving them a home away from home experience is always my pleasure. I look forward to your next visit to Columbus! Thanks and Cheers! Lynn More
