Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near the Interstate exits.

  • We visited on a weekday and did the self guided tour. I would suggest bringing headphones so you don't have to hold the tiny speaker to your ear the whole time. The place isn't very big and you can do the whole tour in just under an hour and a half. The house is well taken care of and they do a decent job explaining why things were done the way they were back then. The garden is small and pretty, but the house is what you are there for. Very little information aside from what is online audio tour. All the information about the underground railroad is packed into a small room, they could do a better job spreading that out more. Not for fidgety people with short attention spans, but these things never are.
  • This truly is a little hidden gem of columbus. Its a historical house perfectly preserved with an absolutely beautiful garden. There's a self guided tour you can take, or you can have a docent show you around. As a wedding venue, this place is absolutely divine and affordable for a small ceremony and modest reception. Picturesque garden located in the back, charming covered area located inside. All around wonderful.
  • Intriguing place but I feel the tour could've been better and the storytelling in the basement could've been more. I left with more questions.
  • A beautifully maintained Victorian home with ties to the Underground Railroad
  • Great for the out of towner looking for a little insight on the local past.
