We had a great time at Harrison House and thoroughly appreciated how Lynn made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped in the door. She made fabulous breakfasts and was so eager to accommodate dietary restrictions. We had a lot of laughs and look forward to another visit when the weather is nicer. Location is great and rooms are... More

I travel 75%. I started going to B&B's because I felt so isolated staying in hotels. Lynn's genuine, open, warm, accepting nature was very healing after many weeks on the road. She is one of the least pretentious women I know. Also , the bed was very comfortable, the coffee cake was delicious, and the company is fantastic!

We love the Harrison House for a lot of reasons. First, the innkeeper Lynn is just the best--everything you would want. Fun to talk to. Great cook. Laid back. Makes good banter with the guests, especially around the breakfast table. Loves her guests and can hold her own in a good discourse. Second, the location--just 5 blocks from the bottom... More

We had the top floor room, which was great: spacious with lots of cool nooks and crannies and a cool private bathroom in a turret of the house. The host was very pleasant and helpful and had a lot of local information. The food was very tasty and was in a great location for the Short North area. The guests... More

As innkeepers in Ann Arbor, MI, it was high time we visited U-M's rival Columbus during a road trip through Ohio. What luck to have chosen Harrison House. We appreciated Lynn's warm, down-to-earth, comfortable approach to the B&B life, which happens to match our own. The house and the surrounding neighborhood is charming and welcoming. We could not recommend it... More

For years, my wife and I talked about staying at a B and B instead of a hotel. We finally did it and stayed at the The Harrison House this past weekend. We are hooked now. Lynn was such a great hostess. Our room was cozy, quiet and clean. She had fresh baked chocolate chip cookies on a plate in... More

Wonderful Place !! Lynn was such a gracious host. The accomadations and breakfast was more than I expected. Can't wait to book next year. Was in town for a horse show at fairgrounds and was able to come and go and not worry about the time. Also the use of the guest refrigerator in the kitchen was nice to store... More

We stayed here for a long weekend during which our nephew got married in Worthington. Lynn is so welcoming and helpful and full of great tips. We used our third floor suite for much needed alone time. We loved the glass block shower, and we never heard another guest - we were surprised that there were other people there. Breakfasts... More

I stayed at Harrison House while bringing my son to his freshman year at Ohio State. This B&B is close to campus and located in an attractive, older part of town with nice walkable streets. It was just right: old style charm, excellent food, nice room with great bathroom. I stayed on the top floor and felt right at home.... More

Harrison House is a lovely Victorian home in the centrally located neighborhood of Short North. The area ( make sure you read further for details on the B&B itself) is filled with fun restaurants, galleries, funky retail shops, cafes for people watching. And there's plenty of people to watch. With the college just down the road, short north is buzzing... More
