What a great experience it was for my daughter and me to stay at this lovely Victorian B&B. The owner made us feel like family the moment we arrived and provided great conversation and insight as to places to go and things to see. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable (I slept like a baby). If you want to stay at a great B&B in the heart of Columbus you've got to check out the Harrison House. Definitely 5 stars all the way!!

We've stayed with Lynn at her Harrison House B&B a number of times now. We love it because there is no better location closer to OSU (5 blocks away) and High Street South (where all the action and great restaurants are). Here's what we like especially--you want a certain vibe when you stay at a B&B: laid back atmosphere, helpful owner, cozy lodging in a historic place, clean rooms, comfortable beds, good rates and a nice breakfast. We've had all of that--and what we really love is Lynn. She's all heart and a solid storyteller and around-the-table debater, all in one and a good breakfast cook to-boot. This is a place to relax, and super convenient location. But most of all the vibe--that's what makes this place different and special.

My name is Noah and after 3 stays I can't imagine staying anywhere else to visit my brother in college. I'm 15 and yet I felt compelled to leave a review as my family and I enjoy every aspect of the Harrison House. Lynn makes you feel like family an provides breakfast like no other. I love the atmosphere and the stay here only makes my trip from jersey to Ohio a whole lot better

As innkeepers in Ann Arbor, MI, it was high time we visited U-M's rival Columbus during a road trip through Ohio. What luck to have chosen Harrison House. We appreciated Lynn's warm, down-to-earth, comfortable approach to the B&B life, which happens to match our own. The house and the surrounding neighborhood is charming and welcoming. We could not recommend it more highly.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit: accommodations impressive, food wonderful, sense of community and quiet were just perfect. Will surely stay again next time I am in Columbus.

Spent a weekend here with three friends from college and had a great time. Lynn is a fabulous hostess and truly enjoys what she does. Breakfast was not only delicious (LOVE the French toast and bacon) but a fun way to get to know the other visitors. It is just what you expect from a bed and breakfast. We walked to both German Village and Short North for shopping / dining.

I have been coming to the Harrison House for about 5 years now. I have never thought about staying anywhere else! Lynn is an amazing hostess. Not only is her food the best breakfast in town, but her restaurant/shopping/general Columbus knowledge is superb! It is a delight to spend a weekend in a true home away from home. I always enjoy meeting the other guests and enjoying all of the culture Columbus has to offer. The only room I have not slept in is room #1. All of the rooms have comfortable beds, luxurious linens, heavenly pillows and squeaky clean bathrooms. I especially love the bathroom in room #6 with all of the windows and the glass blocks! I look forward to returning soon...thanks Lynn!

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Harrison House. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the porch with other guests each evening. The breakfasts were yummy and the conversation was interesting. Our room was comfortable and well decorated. The whole house is very Victorian and inviting. Lynn was available to give advice and recommendations for local restaurants and sites. We plan to stay here on all trips to Columbus!
