German Village Guest House

Historic German Village is the jewel of Columbus. Delightful in its quaint, small town character, the neighborhood also boasts a convenient location (it’s just south of downtown) and hip lodging. John Pribble III and his wife, Darci Congrove, offer the quintessential urban getaway at the German Village Guest House.

Renovated in 2005, the building features exposed brick walls, modern décor, and a fresh take on accommodations. Both Pribble and Congrove have day jobs, so they give you a key and stock the communal kitchen with plenty of breakfast goodies and snacks, like homemade banana bread. Borrow a book or DVD from their library and spend the night in, cozy in your complimentary terry robes. For an evening on the town, marvel at the architecture as you stroll hand-in-hand through Schiller Park, then along the brick roads to one of the area’s acclaimed restaurants, like Lindey’s.
