Your Home Away From Home
Meet The Innkeepers
The Timbrook Guesthouse is better known as the “Old Jack Antrim Farmhouse”. This southern colonial mansion was built in 1875 and originally consisted of 83 acres, which included all of Indian Hills. This was the Antrim residence from 1921 until 1945, when Jack ultimately sold the house, along with 15 acres, to the Timmons Family. The Timmons Family and their horses called the estate home for over 40 years and they coined the property “Timbrook” after their family name and the Kempton Run which flows on the southern end of the estate. By the time the Doles took ownership in 1988, only four acres remained with the farmhouse. After raising six children, and many German Shepherds, the Doles have decided to permanently reside in the main house and have converted a portion of it into a lovely guesthouse. The property offers a beautiful ellipse-shaped swimming pool, a greenhouse filled with tropical trees and orchids, a large vegetable garden, perennial gardens that offer wonderful color throughout the property and an aviary filled with five gorgeous parrots who just love to entertain and talk. When walking this property, it is hard to believe you are in the middle of a large metropolitan area. Whether for one night or many, our goal is to make The Timbrook Guesthouse your #1 choice when looking for a unique place to stay in Columbus, Ohio.
A Rich History of Relaxing Stays
The Timbrook Guesthouse began as the Old Jack Antrim Farmhouse, built in 1875. Jack Antrim lived here from 1921 to 1945, when he sold it to the Timmons family and the property became known as Timbrook. Jill and Peter Dole became the owners in 1988. After raising their children, they decided to convert part of their Ohio home to the guesthouse you see today. We look forward to having you stay with us and experiencing the property’s rich history for yourself!
