The location is about a 30 minute drive from Columbus in a small town. The main house has maybe 7-8 bedrooms, a few sitting rooms, and a dining room. There are nice porches on both the front and back of the house as well as on the second floor. The "carriage house" which provides more of an apartment stay, is out back. I stayed in the main house.
Overall, everything was clean. The owners were very friendly--no problem checking in or out. Breakfasts were good. A serving of fruit, a main dish, drink, and a side of sausage and some breadlike pastries.
One thing to be aware of is that even if a room is listed as having a private bathroom, it doesn't mean the bathroom is private WITHIN the room. For instance, one of the hot tub rooms (maybe both of them) just have a divider separating the tub/toilet from the bed area. The divider doesn't go the entire length of the wall or all the way to the ceiling. If you're comfortable with the person you're staying with, I suppose this isn't a problem, but it wasn't for me. I actually used one of the bathrooms down the hall that is usually shared by some of the other rooms. No one else was staying in those rooms at the time so it wasn't a big deal.
A few other things seemed odd-the magazines in the bathroom are over 5 years old. Also, instead of having small traveler shampoos, soaps, etc., there are just giant bottles of shampoo, etc., sitting out like what you'd buy at Walmart and then you're supposed to leave them for the next person. It felt weird to use a half used bottle of soap when you didn't know who'd used it before.
Other than that, everything was fine.
