When you visit the unique architectural jewels of Columbus, Indiana, this is a place where you can put yourself into the shoes of the influential lords and ladies of yesteryear......
Climb up the master suite at the top of the building (W.G. Irwin's Suite). Write a quick note to your well-heeled friends while sitting in the original leather chair and take in the view of your lovely garden. Take a dip in the tub or douse yourself with an invigorating shower, then slowly get dressed while sun rays stream through a small window (again overlooking the garden). Go downstairs for a soiree or take a walkabout in the garden. Have your "valet" lay out the next day's clothes in the wardrobe room. Before turning in, sink yourself into the chaise lounge and sniff/sip some quality Cognac or Scotch on the rocks.
Back to today, this is a very nice B & B chock-full of history, managed by young and attentive staff. Great breakfast served in the original retro-ware (ours was 1930's). Great setting. Typical B&B guests gather for breakfast (talkative, mid-aged, retired, intellectual), if you can chat your way. It is rather turn of the last century (dream is alive in the 1890's) so do not expect the stark, sterile, industrial cleanliness. A fantastic stay overall.
