I was booked into the Columbine when I went to Louisville on a recent trip. The Columbine is a delightful B&B located in Old Louisville, a wonderful old neighborhood replete with beautiful Victorian houses of which the Columbine is one. Rich and Bob are great hosts. Very friendly, they know a lot about the neighborhood. If you are looking for... More

One of the most beautiful, well kept B&B we have stayed. The hosts were entertaining and delightful. Everything was so clean. You could tell what the place meant to them on the arrival tour of the home. The bathroom was down hall but everyone does have their own bathroom. Our bathroom had a tub with claw feet and a toilet... More

We had a terrific stay at the Columbine in the Magnolia Suite. Very quiet and peaceful accommodation. The Columbine has a very tranquil setting in the back with an elaborate fountain and pond setting. The landscaping was beautiful and well- maintained. This was a perfect location near the University of Louisville campus. The owners were extremely helpful with any questions... More

My recent stay at Columbine Bed & Breakfast was the nicest I've ever had. I don't usually stay at B&B's, but this trip was arranged by a colleague. I was very fortunate. Rich was, by far, the best B&B host I've ever encountered. Extremely nice and interesting, without being pushy at all. Our fellow guest was a charming professor, in... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Columbine! There is nothing more rewarding than to receive an email saying we have a new review and then reading your comments. It was a pleasure to be your host and hope we get the honor again! Peace. More

The rooms are just beautiful. Rich and Bob are wonderful hosts that make you feel like family. Its perfectly situated for a quick taxi ride or Uber to anywhere you need to go. There is really no where else I'd rather stay when I'm traveling to KY.

I had a nice stay in this well-taken care of house, run by a helpful and informative owner who even cooked warm breakfast to order on weekends. Location is great -- near to the university and to a great café!

I was put up here by the University for an interview the next day. Be sure to look for the sign because the house itself is nondescript and you will drive right by if you aren't looking. Parking is located in the back or they will give you a pass to park on the street if you want. The proprietors... More

Four of us stayed at the Columbine B&B for one night at the tail end of our trip. The mansion was absolutely gorgeous and we found it very comfortable. Great beds, clean rooms and great company! One of us was upgraded due to some renovation on the room we had originally chosen. Rich was quite interesting and provided us an... More

What a great stay! Very comfortable. I stayed several nights during the week with my wife joining me late in the week. They were very accommodating to letting my wife join later and getting her in the house while I was at work. I was worried about the baths not attached to the room, but the provided robes made it...

Nestled in Old Louisville, the Columbine Bed & Breakfast is a fantastic place to stay. Rich, our host, attended our every need. The rooms were very comfortable, not to mention the two porches. It was conveniently located near the university, stadium, and Church Hill Downs. We would definitely go back. Ellen Holman

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
