We would like to
extend a warm welcome and invitation to stay at the Columbine Bed &
Breakfast while you are visiting Louisville. Although stately, 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 may find many splendid examples of Victorian
craftsmanship at its finest. For example, through the pocket doors of
the dining room, guests will find rare Honduran mahogany adorning the
walls along with a gorgeous fireplace with rare, rose marble imported
from Carrera, Italy and a regal dining table with intricately carved
chairs. Also included on the ground floor is the parlor, living room and
a large screened in back porch, which provide areas for relaxation.
Completely restored in 1994, the Columbine
Bed & Breakfast maintains its Victorian integrity yet continues in
the present day with modern amenities. Along with central heat and air
added in 1994, each guest room contains a queen bed, cable
television/VCR, a telephone line, secretary, overhead ceiling fans and
most importantly, a private bath. Out of our 6 bathrooms, 2 have
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; Mobil rated; and a charter member of the Louisville Bed & Breakfast Association.
