About This Listing
A cozy, warm, inviting place to stay in the heart of Columbus.
This page is for the queen-size bed. The large bathroom is shared in the house with your own towels provided in your room.
We live in a 1923 two-story craftsman-like house in the heart of Clintonville on a beautiful and neighborhood friendly street. Our three-bedroom home has hardwood floors throughout, a spacious kitchen, a large outdoor living space consisting of a large porch with a permanent roof and a large paver patio with several areas for relaxing. There is a gas grill for those who would like to use it. The back yard is fenced in and has a large koi pond. We spend most of our summer out on the back porch; you will enjoy it as well if you are here in late spring to mid fall.

Interaction with Guests

The house is on a quiet and residential street located in Clintonville just two minutes from I-71, SR315 and the OSU district making us centrally located to most of Columbus. The Clintonville Farmers’ Market is just a few minute walk and a great place to go on Saturdays in the summer or fall. You can also run or bike on the Olentangy River Trail near the house, which covers 13 miles along the Olentangy River from downtown Columbus to suburban Worthington.

We are just minutes away from Downtown, Short north, German Village, OSU, and Riverside Hospital. Street parking is plentiful by the house and we’re also less than 500 feet from a major bus line (COTA #2) that runs up and down High Street all day and most of the night.

Everything was great. Loved the house. Really quiet, clean and organized. The room was very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean and spacious. Russell and Douglas always made our stay like we where at home. We would definitely recommend this listing.
Although we didn't have the opportunity to meet Douglas, Russell was a very gracious host. Their place is full or charm and was very quiet and relaxing. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed and towels were available. A light breakfast was provided, which we enjoyed in their beautiful outdoor living space. We felt right at home and enjoyed our time getting to know Russell during our brief stay.
I had a wonderful time staying with Russell and Douglas. Their home is beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. The bed was great!! If you want to sleep well, this is the place! The neighborhood is very lovely: lots of mature trees, and beautiful homes. 2-3 blocks away from a weekend farmers market. Russell and Douglas are welcoming hosts who made my comfort a priority, and made me cocktails and had breakfast provided. You won't regret staying with them.
Russell and Dougles were amazing hosts. They made us feel relaxed and comfortable the moment we stepped inside. Everything was exactly as described! If it is warm when you are there, then you are very lucky-their patio is a like a little retreat in and of itself. I highly recommend them and will be staying with them every time that I am in Columbus.
Russell & Douglas are wonderful hosts. They respond quickly and let you know what they're up to for check in purposes. Their house is on a quiet street in a great neighborhood! The house is nicely decorated with warm colors and lots of beautiful plants. Someone has a green thumb! Bedroom has many large windows and overlooks the koi pond in the back. Breakfast is laid out with bagels, cream cheese, toast, muffins, yogurt, and juice, just help yourself. You are greeted warmly by their two friendly dogs!
Russell & Douglas were perfect hosts. We received a very quick reply to our reservation request. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable while located in a nice, conveniently located, quiet neighborhood. They provided hot coffee and plenty of breakfast choices in the morning, along with help on travel directions and pleasant conversation. We found everything to be as represented in the listing. We would definitely stay again when visiting Columbus.
Russell and Douglas made us feel very welcome. On one hand they gave us plenty of privacy and on the other hand they made us feel at home. The room and bathroom were very comfortable and the whole house is very clean. Every morning breakfast was waiting in the kitchen and we were enjoying it together with a nice view of their pretty garden. They could not have been any nicer and their dogs were just great. We would definitely stay with those two guys again!!
We would like to thank you both for your hospitality and kindness!
