We were simply passing through Columbus and were pleasantly surprised with all there was to see and do. I didn’t realize that the Inn was one of the top places to visit! The entire town is an architectural super place. Stacey took such good care of us and Lisa is a spectacular chef. We loved the comfy beds, the many rooms to relax and of course the gardens which were amazing! It’s a must see!

This inn is a lovely, welcoming place with beautiful gardens and appointments from its era. Our room on the second floor was very nice and comfortable. As the inn is 100 years old, the shower/bathroom is age appropriate. The sitting rooms on the main floor and dining room are very inviting. Breakfasts were sumptuous and beautifully prepared and served. Wine was offered daily at 5 pm and it was nice to have snacks and beverages on the floor available to guests at no extra charge. The staff is lovely, helpful. Stacey knows so much about the Inn and local history and art, in addition to being an excellent innkeeper. She helped us very much in arranging to waitlist us for a tour we wanted to take but forgot to book until too late. (We made it off the waitlist! Don't miss the Miller House!) We very much enjoyed our visit here and were so glad we chose to stay at the Inn at Irwin Gardens. Would not hesitate to recommend it to friends/family.

My wife and I decided to head to Columbus to do an architecture tour and explore the town. We chose to stay here based on previous reviews and, to be honest, the photos looked terrific. All of the reviews and the pictures are to be believed: it was excellent and, frankly, better than advertised. Stacy was our host, and she was an excellent resource and welcoming person. She made two fabulous breakfasts. As for the Inn, we stayed in the Irwin suite on the top floor and felt like royalty. Though the shower was tricky, it was all part of the charm. Travelers need to know that it is old, yet this is what makes it so unique. Location was perfect for our stay. We would hope to visit again at Christmas time or when the gardens are at their peak.

Jessica the owner of the Inn at Irwin Gardens was very kind and unbelievably helpful. Breakfast was lovely. The rooms were well maintained, fantastic plush sheets and towels. Location is perfect for sightseeing. Columbus is my hometown that I haven't see in in 20 years and the Inn was the perfect base to walk down memory lane. Would love to come again.

This is a historic bed and breakfast located in the beautiful city of Columbus, Indiana. It is within walking distance to many restaurants and a theater. The inn is over a 100 years old, but in great condition. It takes you back to a different time. The garden outside is amazing and a something to behold. The rooms are big and comfortable. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The owner/innkeeper was so nice and informative. The breakfast was top teir with a french toast Souffle and bacon. The cook was so kind and attentive. Overall a wonderful experience for a romantic evening.

We had a great stay at The Inn at Irwin Gardens. The house is amazingly well preserved in its 1910 splendor and the garden has been restored and is lovely. Sarah is a terrific innkeeper. She made wonderful breakfasts and is eager to share her love and knowledge about the Inn. We also took the one hour tour booked through the visitor center where Sarah told us about all the public rooms and the history of the building and garden.

An honest-to-goodness traditional bed-and-breakfast experience. The Inn is charming and historically well-maintained. The innkeeper is delightful and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. I love that the Inn is literally in walking distance of many restaurants and the visitor center for Columbus Indiana. Don’t miss the architectural tour of the J Irwin at Miller house!
