This 1910 Edwardian mansion was built by a family of millionaires, and is a stunning 13,000 sq ft home featuring Italianate gardens. The craftsmanship in the architecture demonstrates true talent and style.


Located in downtown Columbus, Indiana, The Inn At Irwin Gardens is an exclusive B&B famous for it's character, and place within the city's history. It's a chance to experience one of the most historic and elegant properties in the Midwest.


For your romantic weekend away, there are five guest-rooms that you can choose from. Each room has it's own character and charm, and you can feel the history in every feature.


Each are beautifully furnished with period antiques from the Irwin family, so you are blanketed by glimpses cherished by those who used to call the inn home. Even the bathrooms feature original early 1900s fixtures.


When you arrive, take some time to really explore the inn. Beyond the doors of your room you will find a host of stunning antiques that can continue the story. The first floor rooms, the gardens, and the terrace are all areas you can explore. The gardens offer you secluded areas to just be with one another, or read, or enjoy that champagne.

Take a moment to look at the book scattered throughout the home, once the personal collection of the Irwin family, and those who followed.

Keep an eye out for that homemade bagels and quiche. Whilst eating, ensure you take a moment to look up and take in the ornately detailed ceiling above you.
