Dennis & Joyce have mastered the art of social interaction with their guests. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the antique period furnishings were fun to explore, but we especially enjoyed getting to know everyone during our delicious breakfast. After becoming acquainted with our fellow guests, we saw them later in day while visiting the charming, nearby town of...

We stayed for two nights in William's room and were very pleased with our experience. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable-we had everything we needed and thoughtful extras eg nice frig with bottled water, rubber ducks for bathtub and more. Dennis and his wife were very helpful and knowledgeable about the history of the area and their house....

Beautifully restored home, friendly proprietors and tasty breakfast. Would definitely recommend this for a weekend getaway or a nicer place to stay than a chain hotel by the highway. It's convenient to downtown which has some interesting restaurants and architecture.

This Bed & Breakfast housed in a beautiful 19th century mansion lives up to expectations – an older couple, Dennis and Joyce Orwin are running this place all by themselves and manage to provide an impressive experience in style befitting the interior of the house. The rooms are comfortable, wifi is perfect, and the breakfast was superb with an added...

What else can I say about this place that hasn't already been said? Dennis and Joyce are some of the nicest people that you would ever want to meet--interesting, intelligent, industrious and helpful. The house and gardens are beautiful, the rooms have TV, wireless access, and toiletries in the bathrooms. DVDs, CDs, books, games and a fridge with water, sodas...

A luxury Bed and Breakfast furnished with beautiful antiques and other interesting conversational pieces! My restful room was first class! Added features were a balcony off the room and taking a walk in the garden and sitting awhile to relax. The breakfast was delightful and plentiful! Wonderful Innkeepers Dennis and Joyce! Highly recommend!

A classic old house set on a big beautiful lot. Its close to downtown and Dennis can point you to all the hot spots and architectural wonders that Columbus has to offer. Breakfast is a time for all guests to learn about each other over a delicious spread and while this is usually not my idea of a relaxing morning,...

This is an elegant old 1886 home completely restored close to the downtown. The Inn keepers are delightful and are very very helpful. The breakfast was amazing!! They have a full 1 block garden that is most delightful.

Dennis and Joyce were wonderful hosts. Delightful stay. We felt completely free to engage with the other guests or retreat to our own comfortable room. Stayed in the "Martha" room which was quite comfortable.
