American Press Travel News–July 19th–Columbia, TN.–Bob and Barb-“On the Road Again”–“Stopping to Smell the Roses” at the Blythewood Inn Historic Bed & Breakfast. Probably in all our visitations and stayovers (more than 150 at last count) none were more historic and relaxing than the Blythewood Inn. This was truly an antebellum mansion, upgraded to modernity, but decorated and outfitted in furnishings and decor of a period now viewed in pastel colors and thoughts. Another time period when things were so much less complicated and stressful. Barb and I love visiting all manner of new areas in America, and this time our choice was a visit to Columbia, TN. The Innkeeper, Dinah Vire moved to Columbia, TN. in 1989 with her family. She and her husband Gordon purchased the house in 1994 to be used as a medical office. Gordon Vires practice was in the house until 2007, when Gordon became ill. After his passing, Dinah and the family decided to transform the building back to a home, and open Blythewood Inn Bed & Breakfast.
