Most of us come to Columbus to be immersed in architectural history and this B&B will make your visit complete. The Irwin Home is at the heart of the wealth of architecture of this city and an overnight stay in this lovingly maintained Edwardian mansion will make your visit not only comfortable but enriched. The location is ideal and the...

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful inn. The highlight for us was the garden. The gardener and assistant gardener were so friendly and showed us around. The innkeeper was also so friendly and accommodating! The Inn is very close to the downtown area, the visitors center, and the public library. We would definitely stay here again.

Not only is the inn a completely lovely place to stay, but the innkeeper encouraged us to do an architectural tour of the city. Awesome! We ate at great restaurants recommended by the innkeeper as well. Highly recommend a visit to this historic home! We'll be going back to see the garden renovations!

Everything about our experience at the Inn was awesome. Brittany took great care of us and we felt like we were staying with a friend. The accommodations and the breakfast were among the best of any B&B we've ever stayed at...should we return to Columbus, we will also return to the Inn. ***Make sure you budget some of your stay...

The Inn is full of history with many original furniture items still there. Including the original plumbing! Anna was our host and she was so very thoughtful and accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious. We would definitely stay here again. The gardens are being renovated right now but will be completed by Mother's Day. Location is great for walking to so many...

Our third visit to this wonderful B and B! We have stayed in 3 different rooms and they have all been fantastic! The best part though is the service. They treat you like you are the only people there! The breakfast is five star!

Love this hotel, you feel like you are staying at grandmas where you get pampered and cared for! Good food nearby and shopping. Staff was friendly, attentive, and genuinely there to meet your needs. Love the history about the place. Gardens are whimsical.

A wonderfully preserved B&B in Columbus. Childhood home of j Irwin Miller, visionary industrialist who inspired the surprising emergence of contemporary architecture in Columbus. A good man and a wonderful story, and this inn is remarkably preserved with furnishings and ambience so you have a very real sense of life in early 1900's . Sara the innkeeper will take great...

Step into your time machine and travel back to rare moment in American history, exquisitely preserved and maintained. As a bed and breakfast this works beautifully and delivers what most only hint at. Period decorations, fixtures and furnishings are impeccable. The gardens are under reconstruction, but hold much promise. Highly recommended.

Aside from being centrally located and an easy walk to restaurants and architecturally significant locations, the Inn at Irwin Gardens is absolutely beautiful. It is full of Edwardian decor and antiques, and is visually stunning. We visited in early November, so the gardens weren't as lovely as I am sure they are all summer. Even so, the gardens' design is...
