Lodging & Accommodations in Columbus Indiana

Indiana, with its beautiful scenery, local attractions and distance to multiple cities make it a great place to visit. The Ruddick-Nugent House, a Columbus, Indiana bed and breakfast, offers a relaxed atmosphere with peace and quiet.  Located just 45 minutes south of Indianapolis our lodging is a perfect getaway, but close enough to enjoy the entertainment, food and lures of a big city.  You’ll find clean rooms with all the basic amenities you’ll need, and we’ll be happy to suggest and share the fun the things to do in Columbus, Nashville, IN and all the surrounding areas.

Home cooked meals, privacy and personal service are a few of the things we can offer that a big hotel chain cannot.  In fact our commitment to service and comfort has given us the privilege to be named one of the best options for Nashville, IN lodging and best Brown County bed and breakfast.  Please look through the rest of our site for more information on our accommodations.
