About Lisa Craig Morton

After more than 25 years in the banking industry, I felt increasingly dissatisfied with my career and professional life. I began working with a life coach who helped me explore possible career changes. As an outcome of the coaching sessions, I decided to start a guest house business. The idea was one I had always been drawn to and because of the nature of the business, I could maintain my banking job while getting the new business off the ground. In April 2008, I formed Victorian Village Guest House, LLC and hosted my first paying guests in July 2008. In March 2009, I left the banking industry and never looked back! Now celebrating its fifth anniversary, Victorian Village Guest House continues to provide me with a satisfying and rewarding career and it continues to delight travelers, too!

For me, this has been a wonderful journey from corporate America to 'Main Street,' from banking Vice President to small business owner. And hopefully my enthusiasm shows in the 'product' we are offering at Victorian Village Guest House - attention to detail, care for our guests' every need, luxury combined with the comfort of home and a surprising oasis in the middle of this urban neighborhood. We now have the honor of welcoming many repeat guests as well as 'first-timers' so we must be doing something right!

Comfortable elegance; vibrant & cool neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Careful attention by the owners on this comfortably luxurious in-town property, combined with the location in an historic, vibrantly rich neighborhood makes for a perfect stay in Columbus. On the doorstep of the vast campus of The Ohio State University, and in the rich heartland of Victorian Village, this guest house is The Ritz meets reality. Elegantly owner-maintained gardens, a canopy of mature trees, and peaceful silence made the proximity to great, eclectic dining and shopping a highly satisfying juxtaposition that was worth more than the price I paid. A short, easy drive from Port Columbus airport, and nearby the downtown freeways and State Route 315, this place is the gem among the guest houses I have experienced.

Not my first time staying here. This is one of my happy places!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing I'd change about VVGH. Perfectly appointed, beautiful surrounds, top-flight furnishings and the best hosts imaginable. I come here to decompress and rest--truly rest. It's quiet, gorgeous and luxurious but still feels like home. The gardens delight the eye (shadbush and Viburnum odoratum are blooming; cardinals, robins and red-winged blackbirds are singing). And the house-and-garden ogling walks you can take from here are deeply satisfying. Terrific location in the Short North. If you book once, you will always return.

Awesome quick visit

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I on a whim decided to visit the Short North district and were fortunate to book this gem. The location is perfect, the property perfect. Easily within walking distance of HIgh St. and OSU. We actually walked to German Village and the Brewery District. Well worth the effort.

Beautiful place, great host, yummy cookies, very firm bed

  • 4 of 5

The place was immaculate and had everything you would need including amazing chocolate cookies to greet you. The bed was way too firm for our taste so be aware if that is important to you. Otherwise, Lisa was great and the neighborhood was perfect for walking around town!

This was as close to perfect as I can imagine. Location is great - walkable to many many restaurants and shops and just a block to transit if you want to explore farther. Bed was really comfy, and we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Lisa has done a great job with all the details - anticipating whatever you might need. Relaxing, quiet but close to everything. I am looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Lisa and Jeff!
