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 best 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

It is within the I-270 outer belt and within minutes of The Ohio State University, Riverside Hospital, Downtown Columbus, Graceland Shopping Center, SR-315, I-71/I-70. As a guest has commented in their review, "You feel like you're in the middle of Nowhere and you're minutes from Everything" It is uniquely located and very convenient for most events.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Olentangy Inn is a very peaceful and private place for family reunions, birthday celebrations, OSU football parties and a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is uniquely located and very convenient for most events.

WOW-- it's amazing!!
Words really cannot do justice to this wonderful place-you really have to experience it. It has everything you need for any kind of family gathering you need. It was close enough to shopping and other activities but while you were there you felt like you were out in the wilderness. The deer came to visit us several times a day looking for apples! We even saw a turtle one day. Janet was wonderful to work with and I cannot thank her enough.
We had 8 people staying here and it never felt crowded. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. We loved sitting out at night and watching the lightning bugs. Hopefully we can return one day!
Perfect location for a get-together
This was a wonderful place to stay for a family wedding weekend. The common area is large, as is the deck, and it was perfect as a place for the immediate family (8 adults, 2 children) to stay, for the bride to get ready, and for a brunch for 40 people the morning after the wedding. The beautiful location in the woods made it a great place to take the wedding photos before we all left for the event. Seeing deer in the woods was an added bonus. Thank you Janet, for a great stay.
Perfect outdoor space
We stayed for a graduation party and were looking for a great space to entertain outdoors for friends and family, and the Olentangy Inn was exactly that. The deck is huge, feels so private, and fit everybody very comfortably (~30 people). The inside of the home is spacious with 4 rooms, tons of couch space, and a decently sized kitchen, which could easily fit as many people.
Janet was very nice and accommodating; however, it did take about 10 days to get a response, which was a little unsettling just before our visit. The only reason we couldn't give a full 5 stars was that while we did have the entire space to ourselves, we were a little surprised to find out that Janet lives on-site in a separate portion of the house, which made it feel a bit less like our own private place. She did, however, do a fantastic job of making sure the deck was spotless and looked beautiful with spring flowers.
Owner on site for any questions, great place and convenient location 20 min from OSU
Lots of space, quiet, lovely deck. Stayed with 3 young adult sons plenty of room to sprawl, perfect.
Great location and private setting
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
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.
