Columbus Cottage provides a 560 sqft private guest suite with comfy furnishings & en suite amenities in my downtown Columbus home. Home is over 1,200sq.ft. plus outdoor living areas.

Dog friendly/no fee.

The space
This guest suite in my home provides a comfortable, private retreat for travelers.

This dedicated space includes a living room (with queen sleeper sofa); sleeping area with queen bed/comfy luxury linens; walk-in closet with dry kitchenette; a large bath with jetted tub; fast wi-fi; smart TV with tons of stations and streaming TV options --- all to make this your home away from home.

As an experienced host I've brought the furniture, furnishings, amenities and hospitality I've been known for at my former location --Happy Home Farm (reviews posted here from prior to August 2019 are from my former location) to my new setting 'in town' ---Happy Home Guest Suite @ Columbus Cottage.

We are in the process of ongoing upgrades....gardens and outdoor living spaces are being added; new pictures will be uploaded soon ....we are continuously improving the property to make your current and future stays more and more enjoyable...

Garage is now available for guest use; fits one car. Attached to home via screened in porch, this provides additional security for guests who may keep late or early hours for work or horse shows. Garage remote will be provided for your use and keyless entry has been installed.

Ideal for 1-2 people, the suite can sleep 4 in a pinch (charges apply for more than 2 people; children under 6 years old, no charge).

For longer term rentals special pricing may be offered. Please 'contact host' with info on your expected length of stay and etc to chat and discuss.

Guest access
Entering via the kitchen, your suite is just a few feet away down the hall. just past the main living area.

The suite is dedicated for your comfort and privacy. While the main living room, kitchen, laundry and outdoor spaces are also available for your use they are shared with me.

I, too, have a private suite so depending upon how much interaction you wish we may or may not bump into each other much :).....I'm happy to interact as much or as little as you wish but am always available by phone or txt to help with anything you may need.

The kitchen is stocked with spices and such if you wish to cook....there's an eating area that overlooks the future patio and gardens and the screened in porch overlooks the large yard.....watch for visiting deer!

Gardens w/ patio, fire pit and water feature plus hammocks, barbecue equipment and lounge seating will be available for your use and decks will be added as soon as we can (delayed due to covid). For now you can sit on the front porch to lounge a bit or on the screened in porch (to be converted to a 3 season room at our earliest!!).....In 2021 we'll have raised beds with veggies/herbs and you are welcome to pick your own if you're in the mood to cook.

Your well-behaved dog is welcome (please clean up after him/her) and I'm happy to pooch-sit while you are out and about, if you wish. Crate your dog if you leave/him her alone in the suite - I have a small crate you can use for dogs up to 25 pounds - if your dog is larger please bring his/her crate. Keep your pup leashed when s/he is not in the yard's fenced in area.

Other things to note
We are directly across the street from the Rescue Squad and near to the fire station so we occasionally hear sirens. They don't tend to last long...

Note- additional cleaning fees are chargeable to long term guests, Professional cleaning is required once every week @ $15 per visit. There is nowhere in this interface to add for this charge but will be built into a special offer for longer term stays. Thx for your understanding
