We were the only guests so we were invited to play "lord and lady of the manor" ! We arrived just as wine was being served in the library where we sat and relaxed after a long days drive, with a view of the formal gardens. After dinner at a restaurant that was walking distance we walked the garden. Then...

Three sisters came to Columbus after an 85th birthday celebration of an aunt near Indianapolis. We choose to stay at the Inn because it is an actual home from the early 1900's, and maintains even the original plumbing (which is decidedly quirky). The furnishings and the ambiance make you feel like you are living in that time, so if you...

We try to stay at interesting places when we travel. We could have stayed at a big chain hotel but we thought it would be fun to stay at a place steeped in history. We were visiting Columbus to see the architectural sites. That this B&B is connected to this history made the trip more interesting. It is lovely and...

The B&B itself is simply incredible. The grounds are spacious and interesting. The town itself has many local bars and eateries that are easily within walking distance. And like the Irwin gardens mansion, the town is filled with outstanding architecture. Just like the huge gorgeous library right next door. And this is a smaller town, mind you, but the upkeep...

The Owners and Inn Keeper have done everything possible to maintain this historical property as a gracious, comfortable B & B. The gardens are charming and well-kept. It's a perfect site for a wedding or other special event - especially with a spa on the site. I want to stay in every room! Columbus itself is full of surprises-leave time...

This GORGEOUS house is stunningly beautiful in every possible way. I met up with old and new friends in the innsitting industry to share information. My room was the JW Irwin room on the top floor. Comfortable in every way. Memory foam mattress with soft pillows assured a nice night's sleep. The grounds are stunning even when not in bloom....

This quaint bed and breakfast is just amazing. This is our second year to stay and we decided to go for the suite. I just want to say this suite is AMAZING. The views, the sitting room, the kitchen, etc. felt like I had been transferred back in time. My wife and I started out meeting Sarah. She remembered that...

The Inn Keeper, Sarah, greeted us very warmly as we arrived, and told us much of the history of the mansion built in 1864, the family, and gave us free reign as "Lorn & Lady" of the manner for the evening. There was wine and snacks available, coffee and tea in the room and common areas, and a nice breakfast...

This B&B is gorgeous. The house is clean and cozy. I could spend all day looking at the architecture and details from the time the house was built. Saw the impressive gardens area in the morning light. The property is beautiful. Breakfast was very nice. This was a very nice, elegant, old fashioned experience.

The Inn at Irwin Gardens is absolutely one of the most beautiful places I have stayed. The house is in amazing condition, with all period furniture and decor. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and the living areas are welcoming, they absolutely beg you to come and enjoy them. We visited Columbus with friends and I could not be more...
