Private bedroom in host's home with lofted memory foam full bed, 2 comfortable chairs, closet, and workspace. Air mattress can be brought in for up to 4 guests total. Guests access includes kitchen, living room, bathroom, laundry etc, shared with host. Coffee and some small snacks available. Free street parking or off-street parking if necessary (i.e. OSU game day) in a nice neighborhood near Ohio state campus. Walking distance (~15 minutes) to Ohio stadium and the rest of campus.
Our home is a 2-story house in Old North Columbus near Ohio State campus. Enjoy a private bedroom with lock, and shared access to the entire rest of the house except the host's bedroom. The private bedroom features a lofted full bed with a very comfortable memory foam mattress. The room also features two comfortable armchairs, and a table that can function as a workspace, or private dining area for guests. The room gets great natural light and has beautiful hardwood floors, as does the rest of the house. If additional bedding is desired for multiple guests, a queen-sized air mattress can be brought in. Feel free to use anything in the kitchen, which is well-stocked with mostly anything you would need to cook whatever you like. The house also has a spacious living room with comfortable seating, a spacious bathroom, and a separate office guests are free to use when vacant. The house features a lovely and sizable screened in front porch with ample seating and a table, making it a perfect location to enjoy coffee, a meal, a book, or a drink when the weather cooperates. We also have a nice back yard and a 2 car garage plus third off-street parking spot. If necessary (such as visiting on an OSU game day), one of these spots can be saved for guests, but usually there is plenty of street parking. Also, some larger vehicles may not fit in our off-street spots. We have an unfinished basement with laundry that guests may use if needed. The house is on a very quiet dead-end street with little traffic, but is just off main roads and near highways that offer easy access to Ohio State, downtown Columbus, and anywhere else in the city you may want to go. A railroad track is at the end of the dead-end, which is audible but not loud outside the house when trains go by, and barely audible from inside the house. We have never been bothered by it at all, nor have any of our guests, but be aware if you're a particularly light sleeper. Any sound from it would be drowned out by a fan if it's a concern. Plenty of excellent bars and restaurants are nearby, and there is plenty to do in a short driving distance. Plan on a pleasant and enjoyable stay in Columbus with us!
Private: bedroom. Shared: bathroom, kitchen, living room, office, screened-in porch, yard, basement with laundry.
Interaction with guests
Whatever you like! If we're in town during your stay we'll be glad to chat with guests, offer advice on restaurants and other local activities/attractions, and help in any way possible. We'll also leave you to your own devices as desired.
Other things to note
As stated, the bed is a lofted double with a ladder for access. If this is a concern we would be glad to take the mattress off of the loft and put it on the floor for your stay, or bring in the air mattress. If more than two guests are staying, the only way to accommodate everyone is to have the air mattress on the floor as well as the lofted bed, so it would become necessary for someone to sleep in the loft at that point, so just be aware and feel free to ask what we can do to accommodate you if you aren't comfortable climbing into a loft to sleep!
We also do have a dog - Luca - who is very friendly, but sometimes a bit jumpy. He'll be kept out of the guest room but otherwise has the run of the house, so be aware of that when booking. He loves everybody and would be delighted to have you stay.
Check in flexible - can do early, particularly if you're looking to come for an OSU game day.
