About the property

Our Separate Studio Is Immediately Off Of The Gemini/Polaris Exit @ I-71.

Our separate studio is designed to offer you rest in your own wooded sanctuary while being close to the city. You will have your own private living space with private entry, gas fireplace, kitchenette, bathroom, washer & dryer, large covered patio, & fire pit. Our goal is to provide a peaceful, comfortable, clean, and safe space so you rest & enjoy yourself as if you were home.

Below is a description of the private studio with private outdoor space:

The living space is designed for comfort and rest. It includes a new leather couch with two large recliners, tables, a large desk, a rocker, a new ipong chair, bookshelves, and plenty of shelving for your personal items. There is a 50" Smart TV with the addition of Spectrum Cable above the gas fireplace. In addition, we offer a Private Guest WiFi.

The small kitchenette includes a table & 2 chairs, a small refrigerator & a large refrigerator for extended stay guests, a small convection microwave oven (operates as an oven and as a microwave), a Keurig coffee maker with coffee or tea, a drip coffee maker, sink with garbage disposal, toaster, electric skillet, 2 single induction burners with pots and pans,and other essentials.

There is a large walk in closet with plenty of hanging space as well as 2 dressers, a full length mirror, and an iron & ironing board. This feature helps make it an ideal space for extended stay lodging.

In attempting to provide you with a good night's sleep we have chosen high quality mattress, upscale sheets, blankets, and duvet for the queen size bed. You will also find your choice of pillows from soft, Hilton's medium down pillows, and Brookstone Biosense Memory (which is firm). There are reading lamps on each side of the bed that move from side to side and go up and down for you reading pleasure & comfort. There is a ceiling fan above the bed for those that prefer moving air over them as they sleep. ALL bed linens are washed after every guest.

The bathroom has a new toilet, a walk-in shower with seating, shelves and a couple of drawers. We have selected high end towels for your use and other nice additions. There is a powerful blowdryer, a wall make-up mirror, curling iron under the sink for your use. For the bath we offer the natural EVERYDAY BY Alaffia products of body wash, shampoo, conditioner, & body lotion. In addition, we have many extra items such as a shower cap, hairspray q-tips, cotton makeup remover pads, good disposable earplugs, etc...

If you enjoy nature you will see plenty of wildlife as the outside wall is floor to ceiling windows. We love birds and intentionally seek to bring them in. So there will be binoculars for you to use should you so choose. Weekly if not daily you will see deer in addition to the other common wildlife.

If you have children, there is a trampoline, a swing set which includes a baby swing and sandbox that we would be thrilled for them to enjoy. We have a pack in play for an infant or toddler as well as baby jumper, changing set, play mat with mobile, baby blankets, baby towel, & more. We have an extra long twin mattress & plenty of bedding near to washer and dryer that you can bring out for a child to sleep on.

We love nature and flowers and so depending on the time of year you will be surrounded by flowers, gardens, and the beauty of nature. Your walkway is lined with roses, hydrangeas and others flowers.

We are just off of the east side of the new Gemini Exit @ I-71. We are literally 3-5 mins to IKEA and 5 mins to Cabela's.

With no traffic (outside of the rush hours which are 7-8 am and 5-6:15pm) we are 5 minutes off of I-71. During rush hour expect that to be anywhere between 10-15 minutes.

While we cannot offer smoking inside the studio but you are welcome to smoke on the patio or at the fire pit.

We are a couple in our early 60's. We love family, friends, and meeting new people. Addison works for an insurance company in downtown Columbus. Teresa is a mental health therapist & coach for individuals & marriages.

We like to offer people a private peaceful place to retreat and feel safe while traveling. We hope the comfort of our space will help you to feel at home and enjoy yourself. We are obsessive clean freaks so everything (including light switches & knobs) are cleaned and sanitized after each guest. We tend to give guests their space and so if you see us it may just be when we are watering or perhaps shoveling the snow from the walkway & driveway. If you would like less privacy we make ourselves available. We also send our guests before arrival our private mobile numbers so they can reach us with questions or needs.

We look forward to hosting you!

Beautiful, relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Feels like a woodland retreat in the middle of a hopping area. Trees in the back buffer the property from surrounding roads & flowers are in bloom everywhere. Very relaxing. Saw a deer on the way out with the luggage this am.

Addison & Teresa are very attentive to visitors needs - they handled an issue with my wife's asthmatic reaction to the air freshener very quickly & thoroughly, even changing filters to clean the air. Our thanks to you both.

We enjoyed our Honeymoon here!!

  • 5 of 5

Teresa & Addison were great! Very friendly and accommodating and yet unobtrusive at the same time. We really enjoyed the natural wooded setting just off the porch. It was a great spot to appreciate the birds, squirrels and chipmunks. It's a lovely place with easy access to city attractions and secluded enough to enjoy a peaceful day away from the hustle and bustle too. We'd like to visit again on a few future anniversary's.

Absolutely Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing! The studio is very spacious, cozy, decorated lovely and has everything I need for my stay. Sitting out on the back patio or even inside the studio having a glass of wine or drinking coffee has been so relaxing and entertaining. At any time there could be 8-10 deer right in the back yard which I have loved!!! The hosts are the sweetest, kindest people. I’m new to the area and don’t know anyone yet and they have made my stay very safe & comfortable and have made sure I’m well taken care of!!! They have made my transition to the area so much easier! Definitely recommend!

Cozy Retreat in Lewis Center OH

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter lives in Westerville Ohio. She expected a full house for the New Year’s weekend. We thought it would be easier on her for us to stay at a hotel.

After pricing hotels over a Holiday weekend, We tried VRBO. We’re so glad we did. We found the Smith’s lovely studio just 10 minutes from our daughter and so affordable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The bed was comfortable and we had so much room to spread out. The studio was private, quiet and relaxing. The Smith’s were delightful hosts.

On your next trip through Westerville/Lewis Center Ohio, you owe it to yourself to experience true Midwestern hospitality at the Smith’s studio.

Nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this place justice. The owners were very responsive throughout the booking process and the space was just as described. I was there for just one night with my daughter who made me promise we would come back. Very clean and safe with a lot of privacy. Will definitely be back.
