Private Entry Studio With Gas Fireplace @ Gemini/Polaris w/ IKEA, Cabela's @I-71

Bedrooms 1
Space 92 m²
Property type studio


About the property

Our Separate Studio Is Immediately Off Of The Gemini/Polaris Exit @ I-71.

Our separate studio is designed to offer you rest in your own wooded sanctuary while being close to the city. You will have your own private living space with private entry, gas fireplace, kitchenette, bathroom, washer & dryer, large covered patio, & fire pit. Our goal is to provide a peaceful, comfortable, clean, and safe space so you rest & enjoy yourself as if you were home.

Below is a description of the private studio with private outdoor space:

The living space is designed for comfort and rest. It includes a new leather couch with two large recliners, tables, a large desk, a rocker, a new ipong chair, bookshelves, and plenty of shelving for your personal items. A 50" Smart TV with Free Private WiFi and a Smart TV.

The small kitchenette includes a table & 2 chairs, a small refrigerator & a large refrigerator for extended stay guests, a small convection microwave oven (operates as an oven and as a microwave), a Keurig coffee maker with coffee or tea, a drip coffee maker, sink with garbage disposal, toaster, electric skillet, 2 single induction burners with pots and pans,and other essentials.

There is a large walk in closet with plenty of hanging space as well as 2 dressers, a full length mirror, and an iron & ironing board. This feature helps make it an ideal space for extended stay lodging.

In attempting to provide you with a cozy good night's sleep we have chosen high quality mattress, upscale sheets, blankets, and duvet for the queen size bed. You will also find your choice of pillows from soft, Hilton's medium down pillows, and Brookstone Biosense Memory (which is firm). There are reading lamps on each side of the bed that move from side to side and go up and down for you reading pleasure & comfort. There is a ceiling fan above the bed for those that prefer moving air over them as they sleep. ALL bed linens are washed after every guest.

The bathroom has a new toilet, a walk-in shower with seating, shelves and a couple of drawers. We have selected high end towels for your use and other nice additions. There is a powerful blowdryer, a wall make-up mirror, curling iron under the sink for your use. For the bath we offer the natural EVERYDAY BY Alaffia products of body wash, shampoo, conditioner, & body lotion. In addition, we have many extra items such as a shower cap, hairspray q-tips, cotton makeup remover pads, good disposable earplugs, etc...

If you enjoy nature you will see plenty of wildlife as the outside wall is floor to ceiling windows. We love birds and intentionally seek to bring them in. So there will be binoculars for you to use should you so choose. Weekly if not daily you will see deer in addition to the other common wildlife.

If you have children, there is a swing set which includes a baby swing and sandbox that we would be thrilled for them to enjoy. We have a pack in play for an infant or toddler as well as baby jumper, changing set, play mat with mobile, baby blankets, baby towel, & more. We have an extra long twin mattress & plenty of bedding near to washer and dryer that you can bring out for a child to sleep on.

We love nature and flowers and so depending on the time of year you will be surrounded by flowers, gardens, and the beauty of nature. Your walkway is lined with roses, hydrangeas and others flowers.

We are just off of the east side of the new Gemini Exit @ I-71. We are literally 3-5 mins to IKEA and 5 mins to Cabela's.

With no traffic (outside of the rush hours which are 7-8 am and 5-6:15pm) we are 5 minutes off of I-71. During rush hour expect that to be anywhere between 10-15 minutes.

While we cannot offer smoking inside the studio but you are welcome to smoke on the patio or at the fire pit.

We are a couple in our early 60's. We love family, friends, and meeting new people. We like to offer people a private peaceful place to retreat and feel safe while traveling. We hope the comfort of our space will help you to feel at home and enjoy yourself. We are obsessive clean freaks so everything (including light switches & knobs) are cleaned and sanitized after each guest. We tend to give guests their space and so if you see us it may just be when we are watering or perhaps shoveling the snow from the walkway & driveway. If you would like less privacy we make ourselves available. We also send our guests before arrival our private mobile numbers so they can reach us with questions or needs.

Please inquire for our extended stay rates of 28 or more days as we will need to do an adjustment to the set fees on VRBO.

Fee breakdown for reservations:

$90 a night

7-30 days (1 week or more)= $80 a night

30-56 days = $70 a night

57 or more (2 months or more)= $65 a night.

There is a $50 cleaning fee per stay.

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed.

We look forward to hosting you!

Cozy Retreat in Lewis Center OH

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter lives in Westerville Ohio. She expected a full house for the New Year’s weekend. We thought it would be easier on her for us to stay at a hotel.

After pricing hotels over a Holiday weekend, We tried VRBO. We’re so glad we did. We found the Smith’s lovely studio just 10 minutes from our daughter and so affordable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The bed was comfortable and we had so much room to spread out. The studio was private, quiet and relaxing. The Smith’s were delightful hosts.

On your next trip through Westerville/Lewis Center Ohio, you owe it to yourself to experience true Midwestern hospitality at the Smith’s studio.

Nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this place justice. The owners were very responsive throughout the booking process and the space was just as described. I was there for just one night with my daughter who made me promise we would come back. Very clean and safe with a lot of privacy. Will definitely be back.

Peaceful studio with tranquil view of wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience!

Truly enjoyed my 3 day stay to see my granddaughters performance in the Nutcracker. Great location for shopping Polaris or stay inside and sit beside a warm fireplace viewing deer thru two double wide French doors while reading one of their many interesting collection of books. This studio is within walking distance or short drive to great restaurants and shops at Polaris. In addition I can't say enough good things about the owners Addison and Teresa who were a joy to communicate with and very attentive without being intrusive. My entire family spent an afternoon there enjoying our two year old granddaughter playing in the yard and on their swingset. Very family friendly for the little ones. Overall I recommend this studio for families , couples or just one person like myself in town for family events. I can only say it would be an added plus for me if it were pet friendly. If so?!!! Id book it couple weeks each month as my family is within 8 minutes of this fantastic rental. Thanks Addison and Teresa for making my visit to Columbus a success!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The space was very clean and much larger than the photos. The sheets and towels were cozy. Communication was clear and the space gave us a restful retreat when in town for a conference.

Great, Great, Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay for two in the Columbus area near Polaris. We were only here for two days but will be back sometime! We enjoyed the fireplace, the reclining sofa, the Ikea chair, the comfortable bed, and the Keurig coffee! Very quiet place and quiet neighborhood. Came out one morning to see a fawn and its mother and some other deer. Heard an owl hooting in the woods at night. Thank you for such a nice and cozy place to park for a couple days!

A beautiful and relaxing place to stay. We enjoyed it so much. We would love to stay again.

  • 5 of 5

If you want to relax and get away, this is the place to go. It is like being at a country retreat with all of the amenities available. Everything was close, shopping, places to eat, interesting places to see. Teresa and Addison were there anytime we called but never bothered us at all. They are wonderful & very nice. We can't say enough nice things about our stay!
