Wonderful Weekend!

My husband & I spent Veteran's Day weekend at The Dominion House. Joe & Kathy are the perfect hosts! We were greeted at the door with a warm welcome. The house is beautiful with spacious rooms, comfy beds & clean bathrooms. Breakfast was delicious. Kathy is an excellent cook & Joe is the perfect server! We enjoyed our visit & look forward to a return trip.

Perfect Weekend

5 on October 09, 2017

My family and I just returned from a Columbus Weekend Stay at the Dominion House. I was our first time there. What a cozy, warm, easy going weekend. The house is absolutely charming with it's Victorian flare. The bedrooms were as welcoming and cozy as you can get. I stayed in the Buttercup room. What a cute welcoming room. Woud highly recommend it. Already telling friends about it and will definitely return. Our hosts, Kathy and Joe, are a lovely couple, warm and very hospitable They not only opened their home to us but also there hearts. Thank you, Kathy and Joe. -- Ann Scappaticci

Another wonderful stay

5 on August 13, 2017

Our family had its second great stay here. We come back for the history, architecture, spaciousness and serenity, the pretty, comfortable rooms and super breakfasts, and the garden, greenery and swimming pool. In some B&Bs, I feel crowded but Kathy and Joe are just the right combination of helpful. We'll be back.

Innkeeper Response
Love our return guests. Always glad to have you back

charming bed and breakfast

3.8 on July 25, 2017

Joe and Kathy keep a beautiful home and share it with a genuine heart. My boyfriend and I recently stayed with them and had such a wonderful time. The honeymoon suite is adorable. Every morning we woke to an amazing home cooked spread. The garden was wonderful, we saw all different types of birds and humming birds in just the most picturesque setting. You made our 4th of July very special, thank you!

Innkeeper Response
It was a great July fourth weekend. The birds, the weather everything came together. So glad you enjoyed your stay.

Perfect Night Stay!

5 on February 12, 2017

We had a family party in the area and our cousins recommended The Dominion House. It was simply lovely! Kathy & Joe were gracious hosts and made us feel welcome in their home. We were in the Primrose room. The bed was quite comfortable and there were nice amenities for us in the bathroom. Breakfast was delicious! We look forward to returning the next time we're in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for staying with us. We like when we can help friends and family connect. We love to be your "guest room". Please come again.

Wish we had longer to just relax there

We had an overnight away from our kids and this was a great place to be. The hostess was friendly and accommodating without being overbearing. The food as delicious. The house itself and its history were simply lovely.

Innkeeper Response
We love when we can give parents the respite they need, but when leaving everyone is ready to return to the kids. Glad you enjoyed your time here.

A charming weekend holiday spot!

4.0 on September 19, 2016

Kathy and Joe were very nice hosts and made us feel at home in their beautiful B&B. The country style breakfast was delicious with everything made fresh, even yummy scones! The rooms, same as the entire house, are beautifully decorated with period furniture, comfortable and very well cared for. We will definitely stay at the Dominion House again!

A gem in the country

4.6 on August 22, 2016

What a find this B & B was. We were attending a Sunday wedding at the FEAST at Round Hill and chose this place because of its convenience (1 1/2 miles away). Wow, were we surprised at how nice it was. Kathy gave us a tour of this fantastic, old house (built in 1880), and she made us feel at home our entire stay. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast served on the back deck overlooking the saline pool on a gloriously beautiful morning. We will be back!

Innkeeper Response
We are always happy when our guests are happy. So glad you found us, the best thing about running a B&B is the people we meet. We hope all our guests who come for a wedding find staying here makes it all the more special. Thanks for your review, it means a lot to us.
