Great experience

What a great place to stay in Columbus while at yoga teacher training at Yoga on High! Lynn is an amazing, loving, and fun hostess -- she loves what she does, and it shows. Her breakfasts are amazing -- waking up to the smell of her home-cooked breakfast is such a comforting way to wake up. Plus, all the little touches in the house and the bedrooms are very sweet. A great home away from home. The neighborhoods nearby are perfect for walking, and Short North is within walking distance.

First, the location is great for the things I do in Columbus. It's easy access from 71. The OSU campus is within walking distance, State fairgrounds only 2.5 miles away, and downtown is a straight shot. After that, it's just relax and enjoy this treasure!

Nice and warm!!!

Warm and Accomodating

We had an excellent stay. Lynn was warm and accommodating. We asked if we could drop off our car before arriving and she not only said that was fine, but let us check in early because the guest previously staying in our room had checked out early. Breakfasts were amazing, and the location was convenient to great places to eat lunch and dinner.

Wonderful B&B!
