Located in Victorian Village on historic Neil Ave. just minutes from downtown Columbus & a 15 minute drive from Port Columbus International Airport (CMH). Built in 2005, the Guest House is a dramatic loft suite in the carriage house adjacent to an 1895 Queen Anne home. 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. It is within walking distance to highly acclaimed restaurants & night clubs, numerous art galleries, specialty boutiques & antique stores.

Please be advised that the bedroom has open walls and no doors - it is open to the great room and kitchen areas. The guest suite is at the top of a flight and a half of stairs. We regret that it is not handicap accessible, nor is it suitable for young children and toddlers. If you have an infant that is not yet crawling or you have school aged children, it may be suitable for your family.

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!

Comfortable elegance; vibrant & cool neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

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.

Luxury meets country on tree-lined street!

We had a fantastic stay in the beautiful victorian village guest house and decided to make our visit an annual tradition! Lisa does an amazing job making her guests feel right at home! The Guesthouse is equipped with all sorts of brochures to guide your trip, and a to-die-for batch of cookies to enjoy! The atmosphere is quiet and restful, with quick access to a lively nightlife on Short North! I highly recommend you choose VVGH for your next trip to the Columbus area!

Perfect location, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my colleague for a work conference. All of the hotels were booked up so we wanted to find something that was within walking distance of the convention center. The guest house was perfect. It's in a lovely residential part of Columbus and very close to N High street where all of the shops, restaurants, and bars are. The house was equipped with all of the essentials plus many extras like cookies from a local bakery. Was a great stay. Would highly recommend it!

Great house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a weekend visit to Columbus. Lisa was fantastic to work with and made our stay lovely and seemless. The guest house has enough room for a family of 4, and the special touches are fantastic. The house was stocked with coffee, tea, creamer, water and juice upon our arrival. The beds are very comfortable and the neighborhood is fantastic. Could not ask for a better experience.
