About Lise Saffran

My husband and I have lived in Columbia for 20 years and wanted to have a place where our parents could stay during longer visits.

Lise Saffran purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Lise Saffran chose Columbia

We bought this cottage because it is a cheerful, comfortable and quiet place for our parents to visit when they come to Columbia for several months each year.

What makes this cottage unique

The old Southwest is a quiet neighborhood of old trees and winding streets. It is convenient to all of Columbia's downtown attractions and the biking/walking trail.

Lovely Light Filled House with Access to Walking Trails

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a couple months while visiting family and friends in Columbia after being overseas for several years. This house was a perfect retreat! All the rooms are very spacious and filled with light. The house features beautiful hardwood floors, comfortable beds and bedding, a jacuzzi tub, and anything extra you might need to be comfortable. From the house you can easily access the MKT trail, the Columbia Public library, and campus. The neighborhood is one Columbia's most gorgeous with tree lined streets and beautiful old houses. This is definitely one of the nicest places to stay in Columbia. I highly recommend it!

Lovely house, great location

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time staying here. It's so close to the running / walking trails, which are beautiful, and you can walk into town so easily. The neighborhood is rich with history and character and the house itself is clean and very comfortable, with everything you could need. Loved it and would definitely recommend.
