My coworker and I stayed at the Columbine for four nights to participate in a training at the university. The location is very convenient, a short Uber ride from the airport and an easy walk to the university. It's also located in the heart of beautiful old historical Louisville, close to Central Park. My favorite part of our stay was...

This is a lovely place to stay. Excellent owners and such historic and beautiful spaces. The food was outstanding and the scenery was perfect. I would highly recommend it. Very room is a great space. Within walking distance to sights in the historic Louisville district. Specialty coffee 5 minutes away. Perfect for walking and viewing the historic homes.

My three sisters and I took advantage of the second floor of this beautiful B&B. We each had a room (The Garden Room, The Verde Room, The Arts & Crafts Room and The Magnolia Suite) and enjoyed ourselves immensely! Thanks Rich & Bob for being such perfect hosts!

We were celebrating our Sister's upcoming wedding. The accommodations were great and our hosts treated us as if we were in their home. They even reached out to one of the distillery's to help us get a tour which was the absolute high point of the weekend.

We have stayed several times at the Columbine Inn. In fact, it is the only place we check for availability when we visit family in Louisville. The Columbine has everything we look for: ambience, comfort, peaceful environment, convenient location, good food, friendly and helpful proprietors.

Stepping through the leaded glass front door into the museum-like interior of the Columbine, one is greeting by the gracious and fascinating host of the Columbine. One is immediately made to feel at home in the extraordinary environment of the imposing 19th century house that is located in "Old Louisville's" grand row of fascinating architecture. The Garden Room in which...

Barbara and I had a delightful stay in The Duncan Suite. It is big, airy, comfortable and gorgeous. We loved it. The beds were super comfy. The sitting areas were bright and welcoming. The suite has a nice little fridge in it, allowing us to have some dinner in our suite after our massages.

I can't say enough good things about the Columbine! The house is stunning, and it's tastefully decorated with an eclectic mix of mementos from the owners' travels—everything has a story, and innkeeper Rich is a master at telling their stories! The neighborhood (Old Louisville) is beautiful ... a great setting for walking to dinner or to the nearby university. I...

My sister & I stayed at Columbine while visiting with family in the area. Not only is this convenient, but it's a delightful place to lodge...and to dine. This was my second stay. Comfortable bed, delicious full breakfasts & a knowledgable host. What more could you ask for? We visited the new art museum which is within walking distance. And...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come enjoy this historic bed and breakfast mansion with its unique Greek Revival facade situated in the heart of old Louisville. In an area known primarily for its magnificent Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, the Columbine's white columns and portico front stand out from the rest. Enjoy the others, but come "home" to the Columbine Bed & Breakfast where history and hospitality go hand in hand. ... more   less
