About Janet Dinneen

I am a native Ohioan and am an OSU Alumni (BSEE 1993). I am a commercial realtor and this is one of my commercial investments. The Olentangy Inn had been abandoned for several years and when I was able to purchase it in 2007, I felt like I had Won the Lottery! Each day when I walked my dog, Beku, along the footpath in front of the Inn, I would dream of some day fixing it up. Luckily, it went on the market in Nov. 2007 and as they say...The Rest is History!

Janet Dinneen purchased this cabin in 2007

Great location and private setting

  • 5 of 5

We came to Columbus to attend an event on the campus of Ohio State. The house was conveniently located. It was a 15 minute drive to campus. The house was located near restaurant and stores. The house was spacious and set off the main strip giving plenty of privacy. I would definitely recommend this house.

Awesome house....private and inviting

  • 5 of 5

We came down with a group of 7 and loved the open floor plan and all the beds. The house is very private and have a great kitchen and deck. They also have a very nice Bluetooth unit so you can listen to your favorite turns. We went into the city with was a short uber away. Hope to return again...highly recommended if traveling with family or big group.

Awesome weekend, awesome home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a large, beautiful home for a retreat, family gathering or the like this is the place. Although it is literally a mile from a main street in Clintonville, it is isolated in the woods next to the river. The great room is incredible with all windows looking out into nature. The gas fireplace added to the atmosphere of feeling that we were far from the hustle and bustle of normal life! The kitchen was beautiful and I loved that there was a room off of it that served as a staging area for all the things that we brought with us. I can't say enough about this property. Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to use the outdoor amenities but the deck was huge, and there was a fire pit and hot tub (next time!). I've stayed in literally +50 VRBO properties over the last 8-10 years. This was one of my best finds. Thanks, Janet. We will see you again.
