Columbine Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 20 Louisville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 January 2012

Struggled to find accommodation during an international conference week and unlike our usual large hotel choice we found the Columbine. What an absolute treat from the moment myself and my colleague arrived, super location, wonderful building, tastefully furnished and excellent hosts, a real find, would return tommorrow, this time with my wife.

Room Tip: All rooms beautiful

The hosts were friendly and entertaining, while respecting our privacy. I liked the breakfast timing--we didn't have to get up on their schedule, they asked us what time would work. The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable, and quiet. We were all suprised.

We were there in September 2011.

Room Tip: We really liked the big suite on the third floor that included a living room--another couple in our...

I cannot emphasise enough how much my boyfriend and I loved and enjoyed our stay at the Columbine. We came down to Louisville for a wedding and were able to check-in earlier than usual check-in time which was such a big help. The house is beautiful and well kept and the old time creeking of the house just adds to the experience.

Rich was delightful and inviting and made you feel comfortable and like an old friend...and his pancake breakfast...well, nothing can explain how great these were, fluffy and fulfilling, yet not heavy.

We woke up wishing we could stay another day or week and can't wait to visit again. It was great to get away from everyday life and end up in such a wonderful place!

Room Tip: Stayed in the Verde Room and loved it!

The Columbine was the perfect place to stay! Rich was a fantastic host and the breakfasts were delicious. I had never gone the B & B route before, but if every place was a great as the Columbine, I'll definitely try it again. The room and bathroom were spotless. The interior of the house was gorgeous and understated. It was within walking distance to the Filson Historical Society and U of L. I can't say enough positive things about our stay there.

The service and friendliness was wonderful. We felt very welcomed and enjoyed every aspect of this experience. The owners are great and the breakfast was heavenly. This great location allowed us easy access to Old Louisville, Churchill Downs, downtown Louisville and much more. We recommend that you have plenty of time to relax and enjoy this beautiful house.

What a great place to stay....it is in beautiful Old Louisville. The house is gorgeous, as was our room. The inn keepers were friendly and welcoming, wonderful hosts. The room was very spacious, we had a fireplace and our own bathroom. Breakfast the following morning was excellent! I highly recommend this place.
