Inn at Irwin Gardens

4.6 on April 04, 2014

The innkeeper was fantastic. She was a temporary but her choice means that the owners care for their guests. The Inn itself is an amazing example of early 1900's architecture and ambiance. If you want to experience what is was like to live in that time or you just want a beautiful weekend, Stay here.

A beautiful old holes with fascinating fixtures, period furniture, and woodwork. Delightful staff. Unfortunately, it was winter with a considerable amount of snow on the ground so we didn't have a chance to see the gardens in their full glory. I've heard they're worth a see.


The Inn at Irwin Gardens is wonderful

4.2 on February 26, 2014

Lovely old home in the center of Columbus, IN, a short walk from excellent restaurants and fun attractions. Service was very accommodating and we were given an informative tour and history of the house. Gardens are sure to be lovely in season.
