Clean, large room. Breakfast tasted great. The owners are wonderful, friendly folks who want to help you have an enjoyable stay. Reasonably price. I have stayed there on three occasions and enjoyed each stay. Quiet and safe.

This B&B is on the list of must stays. Mary has outdone herself on her Breakfast and her waffles are on the 100 dishes to eat in the state. Mary and Ben Hightower are the owner's and provide the most pleasing atmosphere for a stay. You will love the environment and the decor as it provides a wonderful homey feel....

Been and Mary are a delight to stay with. We have stayed at least 4 years and every time it is nicer than the time before. Breakfast is always scrumptious! Seriously, I couldn't recommend more highly!

Yes, we're back again. Our stay with these gracious people is always a good experience as Bed and Breakfasts go this is one of the best. Older home, but very well maintained and clean. Furnishings are good and mostly antiques. Ben and Mary are great hosts.

My husband and I have stayed at Columbus B&B 3-4 times and each time has been a wonderful experience. Breakfast is DELICIOUS and Ben is always VERY helpful. Thank yoU!! This last trip was for funeral services, and Ben went above and beyond and gave us a clip of the obituaries.

Have stayed several times! Always in the main house until this stay and my husband and I had the cottage! It was very nice and comfortable! It was nice having access to a full kitchen. As usual Mary outdid herself with breakfast!
