My husband and I stayed here on Saturday night - November 19th. Check-in is after 2pm. There is a lockbox near the door and using a code we were able to retrieve our key (name tag on key) and let ourselves in. I personally liked this option of self entry. We found our room, dropped off our things, took a...

Tucked in the heart of Victorian Village, there stands a house on Harrison, aptly named the Harrison House. A historical landmark, this magical Bed and Breakfast has everything a vacationer or staycationer could desire: 24 hour access, hot breakfast, a gracious and attentive host, and delightfully appointed rooms where a couple can escape the everyday hustle and bustle. I chose...

My partner and I have been staying with Columbus' "Hostess with the Mostest" for about three years now, since he started in the Ph.D. Program at OSU. Our first trip we stayed at a competing B&B on Neil Ave. (which was fine in all respects, but the innkeepers were a bit aloof (or just busy with other occupations) and poor...

We stayed here on a Sat. night on our way to Gettysburg, as well as on our return trip. Lynn is very welcoming and friendly. It is obvious that she enjoys people and running a B & B. The rooms are clean and comfy. The Harrison House is located in a historic area with many beautifully restored Victorian homes. Lynn...

Maybe we visited on a bad day, because none of the other reviews mention what we experienced in our recent visit to HH. The owner seems like a sweet woman, but the Dinning area was so filthy looking that we made an instant decision not to eat breakfast there in the morning. Upon our arrival at about 5 pm, the...

Thank you, and I do believe that you may indeed have been having a bad day which tainted your view of the B&B. My dining room was not, has never been and will never be filthy! The table was not covered in carpet samples, there were 2 small binders of samples on the table so I could choose what colors...

Beautiful home in a charming neighborhood-- if you like architecture you'll enjoy driving down the streets to see all the lovingly restored homes-- which is convenient to all types of restaurants and entertainment. Even though the house was full, we never heard any of the other visitors. We had the top floor and the vaulted ceilings and turret bathroom gave...

We stayed in Rm#2 and it was great with a queen bed and a single daybed and attached full bath. The food was prepared well and served in a relaxed and gracious manner.
