The Guest House provides convenient access to the fabulous Short North arts district, The Ohio State University, Goodale Park & the Arena District from the heart of one of Columbus' most historic neighborhoods.

We regret that it is not handicap accessible, nor is it suitable for young children and toddlers.

About Lisa Craig Morton

After more than 25 years in the banking industry, I felt increasingly dissatisfied with my career and professional life. I began working with a life coach who helped me explore possible career changes. As an outcome of the coaching sessions, I decided to start a guest house business. The idea was one I had always been drawn to and because of the nature of the business, I could maintain my banking job while getting the new business off the ground. In April 2008, I formed Victorian Village Guest House, LLC and hosted my first paying guests in July 2008. In March 2009, I left the banking industry and never looked back! Now celebrating its fifth anniversary, Victorian Village Guest House continues to provide me with a satisfying and rewarding career and it continues to delight travelers, too!

For me, this has been a wonderful journey from corporate America to 'Main Street,' from banking Vice President to small business owner. And hopefully my enthusiasm shows in the 'product' we are offering at Victorian Village Guest House - attention to detail, care for our guests' every need, luxury combined with the comfort of home and a surprising oasis in the middle of this urban neighborhood. We now have the honor of welcoming many repeat guests as well as 'first-timers' so we must be doing something right!

Beautifully restored historic homes, a walkable urban neighborhood and a quiet, private location are what make Victorian Village Guest House a first class destination in Columbus! Our proximity and easy access to the fabulous Short North Arts District and all major sporting and cultural arts venues will insure an enjoyable visit to the city.

Fine dining, one-of-a-kind boutiques, art galleries, night life, concerts and sporting events and The Ohio State University are all within walking distance of this premier location.

What makes this apartment unique

The guest house's kitchen, great room, private bath and bedroom create an experience that has all the amenities of a great hotel and all the comforts of home. Guests are invited to 'live like a local' in the heart of Columbus' premier historic neighborhood. We love living in a walkable, urban neighborhood and encourage guests to enjoy the energy and diversity that only the city can offer.

Careful attention by the owners on this comfortably luxurious in-town property, combined with the location in an historic, vibrantly rich neighborhood makes for a perfect stay in Columbus. On the doorstep of the vast campus of The Ohio State University, and in the rich heartland of Victorian Village, this guest house is The Ritz meets reality. Elegantly owner-maintained gardens, a canopy of mature trees, and peaceful silence made the proximity to great, eclectic dining and shopping a highly satisfying juxtaposition that was worth more than the price I paid. A short, easy drive from Port Columbus airport, and nearby the downtown freeways and State Route 315, this place is the gem among the guest houses I have experienced.

Better than perfect weekend stay

  • of 5
Many thanks for the delightful weekend stay at your charming guesthouse. The space is full of character and so cozy! Lisa has thought of everything to make this a home away from home. The sofa is so comfy and the bedding was plentiful. We enjoyed the nearby destinations within walking distance. Thanks for the variety of coffee and tea. We definitely plan to return to spend time in the beautiful landscaped yard. Would recommend this property as a lovely retreat for anyone visiting Columbus or anyone looking for an in-town getaway.

Lisa and Jeff have a beautiful gem here. They have thought of every detail to make you comfortable, from stocking the mini fridge with beverages and cream for your coffee to the sumptuous bath towels and robes. Easy access to plugs for your cell phone and WiFi are a nice touch, too. If you can pull yourself away from the comfortable surroundings (including the beautiful gardens), explore the neighborhood's charming homes and grab a bite at one of the many top notch restaurants within easy walking distance. Truly a treat to stay in such an amazing place.

My husband, preschool-age daughter & I stayed here for 4 nights. We had everything we could possibly have needed in a home away from home, in a beautiful historic neighborhood with much to do within walking distance. The living and sleeping space were beautifully decorated, comfortable, and functional -- really the perfect blend of practicality and luxury. The backyard gardens provide a beautiful view and we were welcome to sit in any of the many seating areas located throughout. The owners were friendly, unobtrusive, and very willing and capable of providing information on activities, restaurants, etc. It was a lovely place to experience Columbus for the first time!

Exceptional choice for a Columbus visit!

  • 5 of 5
Property is well taken care of, secluded and private although offers easy access to the Columbus area, specifically Victorian Village and Short North. Neighborhood is classy and so nice that people often come there exclusively for jogging; the area is not at all crowded. The owners were very gracious and accommodating. I was visiting with my VERY pregnant partner and when we had to cut our stay short after she went into labor, Lisa helped pack our things for our family to pick up. The house is well stocked and well maintained, comfortable and very livable. If you want to visit the Columbus area and do not want to do the hotel option, this is a classy, private and nice way to stay. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, peaceful setting. Cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in numerous homes listed on VRBO, anywhere from Florida to North Carolina. This was without a doubt the most impressive in terms of so many, many luxurious little "extra's" being provided. (We've always found in frustrating to check into a home late at night and having to go buy basics like toilet paper before we can sleep...yes, that did happen in an upscale home with five bathrooms.) So maybe we have a greater appreciation for the "essentials" than most.:) It was extremely clean and decorated tastefully, with the most friendly and charming hosts. Would highly, highly recommend.
