A beautiful restored house, clean rooms, and a delicious breakfast. This is what you'll discover when you stay at the Hawthorne Park Bed and Breakfast. The gracious owners, Ron and Linda, do an outstanding job of making sure your visit is relaxing and enjoyable. Snacks and drinks are available throughout the day.

Beautiful home with lots of room to spread out and relax, spacious bedrooms, each with a bathroom, lovely hosts and delicious breakfasts! Great location near Franklin Park Conservatory and downtown Columbus. Safe offstreet parking behind the B&B. Nice alternative to chain hotels.

Loved Hawthorn Park!

This was our first visit to Columbus and I'm so glad I found Hawthorn Park B & B -- Ron and Linda are very welcoming and have done a great job creating a beautiful, cozy and inviting inn! And breakfast was delicious!

Beautiful place with welcoming innkeepers!

We were warmly welcomed by the innkeepers who showed us to our room. We stayed in the Benton Room which had a separate sitting area. The room was nicely decorated with quality bedding and lush towels. The home cooked breakfast was a wonderful treat with a choice of crepes - all served on china and beautiful glassware. We had a lovely conversation with both the owners and another guest during this time. A lovely inn and definitely a place to spend a night!

Our first time in Columbus and we could not have had a better welcome from our hosts, Ron and Linda. Their establishment is superb in every way, the very manifestation of comfort, style and tranquility; and, what is more, the breakfast is truly delicious. Home from home? We got more than that and following this particular two night stay, we shall have no hesitation making a return visit. Tony and Joan Hollings, UK.

Great B&B

3.8 on May 20, 2015

The room, service and breakfast were outstanding (the outstanding buttons on the review would not work, so we had to use "exceeded"). Beautiful room, with private bath, we enjoyed every minute we spent there. Very convenient location, 10 min to Arena district and 15 min to Easton Mall. Great place to stay in Columbus! The owners were friendly and accommodating, coffee and tea available anytime, brownies were a nice touch. Loved it!

Great getaway overnight

We stayed at Hawthorne for a wedding, everything from beginning to end was top notch! Easy access to downtown Columbus. Very clean & peaceful & a great breakfast! We stay in b&b's quite often, this one is definitely a cut above the rest!! The owners obviously take pride in their home & service, we hope to return soon!
