Just as it should be

I loved staying at this historic house. It had such a great feel to it. The front porch was a wonderful place to sit on the swing and read. The breakfast was splendid and the hosts made everyone feel right at home. Highly recommended!

Ron and Linda are excellent hosts, and their breakfasts alone make this a "can't miss" destination for true B&B aficionados. Add to this the tastefully decorated rooms, plush linens, and quiet location and you have a true 5-Star stay at 2-Star prices. Our only regret was not staying longer!

Comfort and convenience away from home

The hosts were great and knew when to offer service and when to let us be. The food was amazing, and the brief history of the property offered by the hostess at breakfast made us feel part of something cool. The beds caused a deep and relaxing sleep, and the DVD collection contained only quality material suitable for any age. We picked "Second Hand Lions." Well done! This is what a BnB should be like.

My sister and I stayed at the Hawthorne while celebrating our Mother's 95th birthday. This was my second and my sister's first stay and we both loved how we were wonderfully cared for by the owners. We've already decided to come back for our next family get together.

Great B&B in Columbus

What's not to love? From the charmingly historical exterior to the tasteful classic decor to the cleanliness and amazing breakfasts, this was certainly a home away from home. The innkeepers are exemplary hosts with warm hospitality, always thinking two steps ahead for anything I might have needed. Will definitely be seeking this wonderful B&B out again when I return to Columbus.

The Inn Keepers are super friendly and made us feel at home from the start. The house was amazing looking with lots of rooms. Extremely clean and well kept. Breakfast was great the following morning. Recommend the whole wheat crape. It was delicious.
