The Inn at Irwin Gardens

The Irwin Home and Gardens property at 608 5th Street is a magnificent property by any measure. It boasts a grand home built in 1864 and updated in 1910. The luxurious Gardens are modeled after those exhumed from the remains of ancient Pompeii. The property is situated in the heart of downtown Columbus and boasts such illustrious neighbors as the I.M. Pei designed Columbus Library, the First Christian Church of Eliel Saarinen, Columbus Signature Academy and St. Peters Lutheran Church both of Gunnar Birkerts.

The home exemplifies the best in human craftsmanship while the Gardens provide a taste of the beauty of God’s creation. It is reminiscent of mid 19th and early 20th centuries, a place apart from the mundane, where guests can appreciate the designer’s attention to detail and intense devotion to botanical beauty.

Today, The Inn at Irwin Gardens welcomes guests in the gracious tradition of fine Hoosier hospitality. Guests have the rare opportunity to experience elite accommodations of the early 20th century while enjoying contemporary amenities. Visitors enter the mansion through a grand foyer with quarter-sawn English white oak paneling and ornate staircase that rises to the second and third floor guest rooms. The beautifully detailed coffered oak beam and floral plaster relief ceilings rival those in European estates.


Exquisite Lodging at the heart of Columbus, IN.
