We stayed Friday and Saturday for a wedding at a local winery. We were attracted to it as we drove through Columbia, PA, so we made reservations (all four rooms) for the wedding. The overall experience (accommodations, food, common areas, backyard, the dogs (Merle/Layla) was excellent. We plan on going back when we visit the Amish area, since the roads...

Our family chose to stay at the Columbian because of its close proximity to PA Amish country (about 20 minutes away). The Columbian is a tremendous value especially when compared to the more expensive motels/inns just slightly closer than this. The property is a classy, historic inn that is also up-to-date in providing modern conveniences and comforts. We were incredibly...

We had a relaxing stay at the beautiful Columbian. The room was spacious and very comfortable, with a balcony overlooking a charming backyard koi pond and fountain. There were many thoughtful touches -- like complimentary water and soda -- and breakfast was absolutely delicious.

Beautiful accomodations. The Inn is a historic building with all the victorian charm, but all the modern amenities. The food was wonderful and the innkeeper lovely. This was our second stay and will definitely stay there again. The town of Columbia is beautiful - beautiful to walk around and the Inn is just a short walk to the Susquehanna River.

We're B&B people, have been for years - the hospitality, food, and the incredible value have always been the draw for us. We're glad to say that the Columbian is no exception to this. We were in the area for the National Watch and Clock Museum's James Bond Enthusiast weekend, and this B&B embodied all of the elegance that one...

This was my first time at a B&B so I did not know exactly what to expect. The Coumbian Inn exceeded all of my expectations. The rooms were larger and nicer than the pictures made them out to be and the breakfast was out of this world! Our hostess was very friendly and ensured we were very happy and comfortable....

“We stayed in The Yost Room which was ideal for a young couple. Queen sized bed, private bathroom, sink and mirror located in the room (outside the bathroom), and a small television (though I doubt you'll turn that on considering all there is to do nearby).”

“Didn't really look at the other rooms, but would definitely recommend the Bishop Room. Just one tip, be sure to put the decorator shades all the way down before you turn in, as the area is somewhat bright if you don't.”

“The Yost Room was the cheapest, but felt luxurious. No matter the room and the price, you'll get a good deal and great experience.”

“I liked the room in the back --a two bedroom actually--because it had a private porch overlooking the garden. There was a second "back room" too which is away from the street. I looked at the street side rooms and it seems like with the windows closed you wouldn't be bothered by the cars on Rt. 462.”

“Go tothe near by Prudhomme's a Cajun restaurant if you like (or would like to try) New Orleans style cuisine. It was very authentic, had a laid back charm and great food. Perhaps not the best choice if you're on Weight Watchers but otherwise perfect.”
