This was an amazing place to stay for the weekend! Clean and quiet. Would definitely stay here again if I'm ever back in the Columbus area.

Wonderful Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

This property became my second home for almost 6 months. It was quite beautiful and central to everything. We were walking distance from some of the finest restaurants in German Village, the lovely Schiller Park and many other German Village attractions. I was completing work at NCH nearby, so it was also very convenient for work. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone planning to stay for a short or extended stay. I’m looking forward to returning.

Great location and owner

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our 10 day visit to Columbus staying in this darling carriage house in German Village. Great location close to beautiful Schiller Park and within walking distance of all great restaurants, shops and the Brewery district. A short walk to catch the free C-bus that does loops with stops every 10 min going north and south on High St from German Village/Brewery District, through Arena District, North Market, Short North and up to Victorian Village. Can't say enough good things about the owner, Jeff, who was excellent to communicate with and very attentive without being intrusive. Had an AC motor die due to unusual heat wave second day there and spent a very uncomfortable night before busy repair man could get there and the owner refunded us for that night. Overall a great, convenient and fun place to stay in beautiful history-rich German Village.

We had a great time staying in the Carriage House.

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, comfortable, well stocked and perfectly located. From this house we could walk anywhere in German Village. We met Jeff and he walked us through the intricacies of the remote controls then left us be. We'll be back.

Wonderful cozy, just like living in a treehouse!

  • 5 of 5

I lived in this charming treehouse while I transitioned to Columbus. I found this carriage home to be peaceful, cozy and located in the heart of German Village. I parked my car in the garage and walked most places. The area has resturants, coffee shops, pastry shops and other wonderful unique stores to explore. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything I needed. I enjoyed the terrace and flower pots in the warm weather. Really wonderful place to stay.

A lovely apartment in the heart of German Village

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 weeks in this charming apartment, walking to dinner and enjoying the park that is only a block away. Jeff is friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.
