      Thank you so much for sharing your space. We enjoyed being here. The house was easy to find and the beds were so comfy.

    • What a wonderful place!

      We spent a great week here before moving to our rental home when relocating from Cary, N.C. My husband spent a total of three weeks here in the process of our move. What a wonderful place. Great way to start our time in Columbia.

    • Great for multi-week stay!

      We stayed here for three weeks during the process of moving. What a great central location to get everything accomplished. The house is lit at night for the holidays and looks beautiful. Thanks so much for providing a great place (and historic home too!) for us to complete our 20+ years of living in Columbia. Many good memories in Cosmo Park too. Best wishes!

    • Thank You So Much!

      Dear Eric and Sara, Thank you ever-so-much for hosting us in your lovely and cozy home! As we were relocating to Columbia from DC, your place was all we could ask for and more to make our move so much more comfortable. Thank you so much for your kindness, hospitality -- we are incredibly grateful.

      So nice, so quiet and so private among the beautiful trees. Maybe one of our best parts of our stays was greeting Guinness on our comings and goings -- a dear ol' dog! Best withes with this business venture.

      We loved this place! It's one of the best experiences we've had -- it blows any hotel away in Columbia, and it helped to make our three-week stay more relaxing and comfortable. I'd be happy to endorse your guesthouse on any website, and I'd jump at the opportunity to stay here again. (P.S. My son was really bummed when I told him we had to leave :) )

      Enjoyed my 3-week stay. The place is comfy and quiet and was a wonderful home away from home while taking graduate classes. I'd love to stay again.

      We stayed here -- actually called it home -- for three weeks of summer grad school. Wish I would have had a little more time to relax and enjoy CoMo, but had a great time never-the-less. Sara and Eric made us feel welcome. Guiness (their black lab) and the kittens kept us from missing our own four-legged, fur babies. Hopefully I can visit and stay here again. :)
