We would like to extend a warm welcome and invitation to stay at the Columbine Bed & Breakfast while you are visiting Louisville. Although regal, this former estate of one of the "mahogany kings" of Louisville, which was built in 1896, cannot disguise the warmth and hospitality that we extend to all our guests. The bed and breakfast has preserved details that truly reflect the Victorian era in which it was constructed.
On entering the ground floor of the Columbine, our guests will find many splendid examples of Victorian craftsmanship at its finest. For example, through the pocket doors of the dining room, guests will experience rare Honduran mahogany adorning the walls along with a gorgeous fireplace with rare, rose marble imported from Carrara, Italy. The large dining table has beautifully carved feet. Also included on the ground floor is the front parlor with a baby grand piano, a back parlor with a large movie collection for guests to borrow from. We also have a large screened-in porch for relaxing outside.
Completely restored in 1994, the Columbine Bed & Breakfast maintains its Victorian integrity yet continues in the present day with modern amenities. Yes, we have FREE WIFI! Along with central heat and air added in 1994, each guest room contains a queen bed, cable television, DVD or Blu-ray player, a telephone line, desk, overhead ceiling fans and most importantly, a private bath. Out of our 6 bathrooms, 2 have claw-foot tubs.
As you can see, at the Columbine Bed and Breakfast, we take great pride in our home but most of all we take pride in our warm and friendly atmosphere. We try to make every guest feel at home and welcome. After all, we like to think most people come back not just because of our marble fireplaces or great beds! We try to make every person, couple and family feel truly comfortable and special.
Come visit the Columbine Bed & Breakfast. We would like to show you what hospitality and comfort really means!
The Columbine is AAA inspected; a charter member of the Louisville Bed & Breakfast Association; a member of the Professional Association of Innkeepers International; and the Bed and Breakfast Association of Kentucky.
