#6 of 15 B&Bs / Inns in Louisville
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.

We stayed one night at Columbine on a road trip east. It is a beautiful building in a wonderful, historic neighborhood. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. When we get to Louisville again, this will definitely be our stay of choice.

The Columbine B&B is a fantastic place to stay and friendly hosts make the guests feel at home in this wonderfully restored Victorian within the arts community of Louisville. The building and ammenities are visually stunning! Wheather visiting the Kentucky Derby, one of the local Louisville colleges or concerts ( within close proximity to all these), The Columbine adds comfort and a pleasant experience to anyone's travelling and vacation itinerary. We will definitely return to the comfort of The Columbine.

We traveled to Louisville to attend the Bourbon & Beyond music festival. Despite the horrendous rain, we were really glad we chose to stay at the Columbine. The inn was filled with music lovers and the accommodations were perfect. The inn is beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. Rich was an wonderful host and provided us with delicious breakfasts. He provided us great restaurant suggestions and helped us get around Louisville. We hope to return this September for the festival. Fingers crossed that it does not rain.

My sister and I recently stayed at the columbine for a weekend to visit the Jane Austen Festival in Louisville and it was delightful! The house itself is gorgeous, especially the sweeping staircase and stained glass window, and the hosts are wonderful! It is right in historic Louisville and close to plenty of fun things to do. We enjoyed staying in the Arts and Crafts room which was spacious, immaculately clean, elegant and comfortable. Rich cooked us some terrific breakfasts to fortify us for a busy festival day and was so welcoming! We hope to be back with more time to explore the back garden this time and play that gorgeous piano again!

We recently returned from a long weekend in Louisville. We stayed in the historic district downtown at the Columbine. This was our fist experience staying in the city, and it was completely worth it. Our hosts were so gracious, charming, and excellent conversationalists. We have stayed at many BnB's, and quite a few are self-service where we have never seen our hosts. Not the case here. The Columbine is ideally located for tourism, whether you are enjoying the Victorian houses, attending the St. James art show, or exploring the neighborhood pubs. The parking was secure and conveniently located. Our suite was comfortable and quiet. We slept well with the air conditioning unit and the optional "white noise" generator. The shower and bath were spacious. The breakfast was planned based on our preferred times, and it was served right on time Conversations were lively and included recommendations for dining or shopping. The Columbine is tastefully decorated, and there are plenty of places for relaxing, reading, or sipping a glass of wine. We spent time on both the back porch and the second floor deck, and they were quiet and comfortable. I look forward to returning in the future for the Derby or another St. James art show and catching up with the guys on their travels and collections.
