Luanna and I stayed here and enjoyed it. The giant home is interesting. We were the only guests on our mid week stay so it was quiet. Facilities were very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was wonderful. Innkeeper Dennis was interesting and full of info and answers to our questions about the home. Will stay again. Would like to see...

Be sure to return when the gardens are in full force. We have, at last count, 8 water features, from a substantial main fountain to a surprising "weeping persimmon tree." I am partial to roses (especially those with literary names, as I was an English teacher for 40 years), iris, daylily, and peony. If you are a gardener yourself, we'll...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Ruddick-Nugent House. It was very clean and well-maintained. The room was very comfortable. We enjoyed having our own gas fireplace within our room. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was great too. The host, Dennis, was extremely helpful and welcoming. If we go to Columbus again, we will stay at this...

We could not have asked for anything more at this B&B. The inn is beautiful and very comfortable. Rooms were large with every modern amenity, but with antiques and little details that keep the flavor of times past. The weather was rainy and dismal or we would have enjoyed the outdoor area too with many plantings, fountains and seating areas....

We wanted to visit Columbus, IN for some time to view its architecture. We generally stay in B & B's on our trips and chose the RUDDICK-NUGENT HOUSE. The house and room was great, the owner-host made us feel very welcomed and the breakfast was well done on both days. I would recommend staying here.

Relaxing weekend in Columbus, IN. The B&B was excellent. Very charming and comfortable. The Inn Keepers are very friendly and helpful with recommendations. We enjoyed touring the Miller House, Ice Cream Sodas at Zaharakos and walking (0.7mi) to Zwanzig Z's for pizza and beer. FYI breakfast is very formal, sit down dining with the other guests and inn keepers. There...

Nestled into an old neighborhood, this home stands majestic among the homes. It's beautifully restored to reflect the splendor of days gone by. Years of labor have gone into this home to bring it to the standards bed and breakfasts. Innkeeper very knowledgeable on the home, and the history of Columbus. Weather permitting you can enjoy time on the front...

Bed and Breakfast offering rooms each with private bathrooms on second floor. Owners are knowledgeable with local tips and guidance for visiting area, as well as conversational about the history of the home and the former residents' role in local history. A highlight of the stay was the breakfast which offered a wide variety of homemade seasonal, prepared dishes such...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Ruddick-Nugent House. The room was very clean, all of the necessities were provided, and our hosts were warm and welcoming. Breakfast the next morning was a delight -- a tasty meal and engaging conversation. All in all this was an experience we would gladly repeat!

We're still talking about what a fun, old-fashion experience we had at Ruddick- Nugent House last weekend. We actually conversed with total strangers at breakfast table without phones, IPads, googling! earphones, IPods, or texting. It was quite scary at first but pots of good coffee, tasty food and excellent hosts helped us succeed and enjoy. We also recommend the accommodations...

Friends recommended this lovely B & B as a stop on our recent road trip. Not only will we thank them but we highly recommend this beautiful place to others making the trip to Columbus, IN. For us, this trip was an added bonus at the end of our long trip from Wisconsin for a week in the Smoky Mountains...
