Our family purchased this house in 2003. It is our dream house and the perfect place to raise our family. We are hoping to follow another dream and spend time each year in Guatemala or Morocco, Africa working with orphans.
The Owner purchased this house in 2003
Ideal location in the country, but easy access to everything. About 30 minutes from downtown Columbus.
A beautiful, peaceful, country setting.
Our family of 7 adults and 10 children (ages 13 to 2 months) came from Ohio cities and from Missouri to celebrate Christmas in this house. It was perfect! There was lots of space for everyone to spread out. The two eating areas were perfect for family dinners. The basement offered entertainment choices for all ages and tastes. Our younger children loved the castle, blocks, and wooden train set. The older ones had ping pong and air hockey tournaments. We also played some of the board games. The weather was mild and our children enjoyed using the trampoline and bikes and riding toys outside (lots of safe space for little ones to ride). We found a great variety of videos to watch and books to read. We appreciated having Internet access for those who had to keep in touch with work. The cable service allowed the sports fans to watch their favorite football teams. Shopping was convenient and nearby. One afternoon we all went to Plain Cityfor bowling,followed by pizza from Jans and Tony's for more family fun. It was especially nice to have Christmas decorations in the house. The grandchildren are already asking if we will go to the "Christmas House" again.
I rented this home to house a group of performers that were flying in from Japan for a concert celebration with our performance troupe. They loved the space, comfort and quiet that was available. The younger performers loved the multitude of features available in the basement to help relax, and everyone enjoyed being able to eat and share time together in the common areas.
Will definitely rent again if we have the need!
We rented this wonderful house for three nights in late October to attend our son and daughter-in-law's wedding in Columbus. We had all age ranges staying at the house, from 2 years old to grandma in her 80s! We had the rehearsal dinner at the house on Friday night, and the groomsmen and the groom all stayed at the house that night. With a basement full of games and a hot jacuzzi and sauna waiting for them, they had a blast. Meanwhile, upstairs the rest of us were able to relax and get prepared for the next day. PLENTY of room to spread out in this house and plenty of bathrooms to get ready for the wedding day. We loved being out in the country but able to access Columbus in about 25 minutes. There was so much to do, we wished we could have stayed longer! And the way things are set up for checking out, it was super easy. It was an absolutely perfect stay, and we couldn't have beeen happier with the property and the accommodations. And the owners were wonderful to work with too. I would highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed!
Went to Columbus for an OSU game and found this gem. Only 20 minutes from the stadium this property was perfect for our group. Great pool and hot tub.
We enjoyed grilling out in the backyard and playing bags.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for a couple of nights. We couldn't have asked for a better place. We had the most relaxing time but stayed very busy with all the extras (pool, hot tub, and game room).We would definitely come back and stay again.
At the risk of sounding repetitious, this home is all it is advertised to be and after staying here 3 years in a row, I cannot imagine another place that could offer our family of 8 adults and 9 children the amenities and peaceful surroundings found here. Like others, we have already booked our 4th vacation for 2015. Our 4 year old grandson was very sad to leave "Our Columbus House", but he was happy when told we would come back. Everyone involved with this property is kind, friendly, accommodating and respectful of the renters privacy. Reading the reviews of repeat visitors and looking at the 2015 calendar should tell you how in demand this rental is becoming. The 5 star "Excellent" rating is for real.
