The Guest House provides convenient access to the fabulous Short North arts district, The Ohio State University, Goodale Park & the Arena District from the heart of one of Columbus' most historic neighborhoods. It is within walking distance to highly acclaimed restaurants & night clubs, numerous art galleries, specialty boutiques & antique stores.

A Note About Our Loft Style Architecture: Victorian Village Guest House features dramatic, open loft-style architecture. Please be advised that the bedroom has open walls and no doors - it is open to the great room and kitchen areas. The guest suite is at the top of a flight and a half of stairs. We regret that it is not handicap accessible, nor is it suitable for young children and toddlers. If you have an infant that is not yet crawling or you have school aged children, it may be suitable for your family.

About Lisa Craig Morton

After more than 25 years in the banking industry, I felt increasingly dissatisfied with my career and professional life. I began working with a life coach who helped me explore possible career changes. As an outcome of the coaching sessions, I decided to start a guest house business. The idea was one I had always been drawn to and because of the nature of the business, I could maintain my banking job while getting the new business off the ground. In April 2008, I formed Victorian Village Guest House, LLC and hosted my first paying guests in July 2008. In March 2009, I left the banking industry and never looked back! Now celebrating its fifth anniversary, Victorian Village Guest House continues to provide me with a satisfying and rewarding career and it continues to delight travelers, too!

For me, this has been a wonderful journey from corporate America to 'Main Street,' from banking Vice President to small business owner. And hopefully my enthusiasm shows in the 'product' we are offering at Victorian Village Guest House - attention to detail, care for our guests' every need, luxury combined with the comfort of home and a surprising oasis in the middle of this urban neighborhood. We now have the honor of welcoming many repeat guests as well as 'first-timers' so we must be doing something right!

Comfortable elegance; vibrant & cool neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Careful attention by the owners on this comfortably luxurious in-town property, combined with the location in an historic, vibrantly rich neighborhood makes for a perfect stay in Columbus. On the doorstep of the vast campus of The Ohio State University, and in the rich heartland of Victorian Village, this guest house is The Ritz meets reality. Elegantly owner-maintained gardens, a canopy of mature trees, and peaceful silence made the proximity to great, eclectic dining and shopping a highly satisfying juxtaposition that was worth more than the price I paid. A short, easy drive from Port Columbus airport, and nearby the downtown freeways and State Route 315, this place is the gem among the guest houses I have experienced.

Really felt comfortable all the way around, at the rental, walking around and accessible to some good eating and entertainment. Didn't rent a car, used Lyft, very convenient. Would recommend for one or two people.

BEST in Columbus!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down, best rental experience while staying in Columbus! The place is wonderfully decorated, perfectly kept up, clean, quiet and peaceful. The location is walking distance to tons of shops and restaurants, which made the stay there even more enjoyable. The gardens boast the most beautiful blooms this time of year (despite the humid mid-west weather) we kept finding ourselves drawn to sitting in the garden and taking in all of the beauty around us. Lisa is a fantastic, very accommodating, and gracious host. Mark my words, we will stay here EVERY time we come into Columbus! Thanks again, Lisa, see you next time!
