8. Short North townhouse, right off High Street (from USD 98)

Looking at the pictures of this listing, I can really feel the comfort and coziness this place has to offer. The host is right; it is simple but not too simple that it’s boring. It has just enough space to make it feel homey but not too overrated. It is close to most bars for a night out with friends or loved ones. Treat it as your own and you will be attached to this house for rent in Columbus, Ohio.
