We love to share our one-of-a-kind private home in a resort-like setting on the Scioto River. Our guests have a bedroom with private bath with use of our public rooms, swimming pool, hot tub, tennis court and kayaks on the river. The best waterskiing in the state is off our dock……BYOSB (bring your own ski boat!) Our price includes the 10% bed tax.

PLEASE NOTE - this rental price is for 2 people staying overnight. Rental of our space for an event is more expensive and requires negotiations.

The space

Fantastic private home, with spectacular great room, informal party room, solarium, gardens, tennis court, swimming pool, hot tub, and canoe and kayaks on the river.

Guest access

Easy access to freeways, downtown Columbus, Columbus Zoo, and OSU campus. Hosts willing to drive our guests to and from OSU football games for a reasonable fee.

Interaction with guests

We will interact with our guests as much or as little as they'd like. Breakfast, of course.

Leslie is such a warm, eccentric and fascinating person! Lovely to meet her. Felt very much at home, and slept wonderfully in a very comfy bed.

Leslie is a wonderful host and very welcoming. The house is absolutely beautiful- nestled right on the river front. Being able to use the swimming pool, hot tub and kayaks make this a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We would love to come back some time!

What an excellent home and stay. Beautiful grounds on the Scioto River provided the relaxing visit we needed. The pool was a refreshing bonus. Leslie was very accommodating serving delicious breakfast and coffee every day and making everything available to us. Finally, a great host to chat with and provide us with good recommendations on restaurants (which we love to visit). I would recommend this b&b to anyone visiting the Columbus area.

Absolutely AMAZING! I had a graduation party at Leslie's house and she was very accommodating and answered all my questions before booking. The house was exactly as pictured, if not better! Me and my friends enjoyed our time there and will probably return in the future.

Leslie is a very pleasant and articulate host, she opened her peaceful and beautiful home and did not mind my comings and goings at the beck and call of work. I enjoyed my weekend would like to stay again.
