Single, spacious, east facing bedroom in beautiful Old Oaks, a historic neighborhood on the near Eastside of downtown Columbus. 3 guests max. Other bedrooms are available if your party is larger than this.

The space

**Note: This listing is to rent one bedroom in my Old Oaks home. For several other options, visit my profile.


My home is a spacious, fully remodeled, 2300 square foot American Foursquare located in the historic Old Oaks neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. Old Oaks is centrally located off the Livingston Corridor on the Near East Side (a few miles SE of Broad and High, the center of downtown Columbus).

My home is central to most attractions in town, but is within walking distance to Children's Hospital, so it may be of particular interest to families visiting the hospital or doctors doing rotations. It neighbors German Village, Old Town East, Franklin Park and downtown, and is a short distance to the Short North, the OSU campus, Grandview and other central neighborhoods. Also a short bike ride from CCAD and Columbus State if you happen to be visiting either of those campuses.

This listing is for one of the available bedrooms, the music room. It is only available when the other bedrooms are not available, just follow the links above for them or go to my profile and view other listings. The entire home is also available, but no less than a week's notice is required to book it, as I do live in the home and have to make arrangements if you want the whole house to yourself. Being that each bedroom is available separately, there is a chance you may not be the only overnight guest.

Best of luck on your search and have a lovely stay in Columbus, whether you choose to stay with me or not!

Guest access

There is an oversized living/dining area with plenty of comfy seating and a fairly massive 60" top of the line Smart, Plasma 3D TV with HD cable, BlueRay, and HDMI cords for PC hookup.

The guest bathroom features a standing tiled shower. The kitchen (not my groceries) is available for your use as well if you prefer to dine in rather than take in some local cuisine from one of our many popular restaurants.

Sorry, but for the low price I'm offering nightly stays in these bedrooms, you do not have the option of doing laundry or using the whirlpool tub.

Interaction with guests

In addition to the lovely home, by staying with me, you also gain access to an insider's view of Columbus. I have lived here since 1999 and have friends who have lived here their whole lives who comment that I know more about the city than they ever knew possible. I am well tuned-in to events going on in the city, and can recommend restaurants or attractions to suit any taste. If you like to explore, I can show you parts of this town most don't even know exist (you'll see one such area just by staying with me).

Other things to note

You should know that I own two large dogs. They are restricted to certain areas of the house and you will never come in contact with them if that is your desire.

All I can say is I would stay again and again and again. Luke’s a very attentive host and the cherry on top is his beautiful home. The location is super close to downtown. It’s the only place I’ve stayed where the neighbors are as friendly to you as they are the home owner. Where else can you find that kind of hospitality? Definitely key to any great stay and you surely get the feeling you’re at home. If ever in Columbus, looking for a hometown feel within a cumbersome city, this is and more importantly should be the place to stay. Do not pass up the opportunity to stay here, you’re in for quite the treat.

You’ll love the location and the luxury bathroom that Luke has installed. Very nice. Good neighborhood with lots of street parking close to the house. Restaurants nearby. Luke reached out early to coordinate arrival. Good value.

Room was clean and had everything I needed. Bathroom was very large! Luke was extremely helpful and flexible with check-in, especially since I had significant flight delays.
