Meet the Owners and Learn the History of The Columbia In at Peralynna
David and Dr. Cynthia Lynn created The Columbia Inn, an oasis in bustling Howard County, an area in Maryland named "Best Place to Live" by Forbes magazine. Mr. Lynn is a graduate of Punaho in Hawaii, the University of Hawaii, and received graduate degrees at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Lynn, a retired professor in business, spent her formative years in Europe, and replicated the architecture of the childhood homes she was most fond of in her European homes into the design of The Inn. Their son, a former professional athlete, built the Inn as their private home in 1996. The Columbia Inn at Peralynna stands as a local landmark and overlooks the gentle rolling hills of Clark’s Elioak Farm in Columbia, Maryland. The Inn is conveniently located within easy reach of the major cities of Baltimore and Washington DC, historic Ellicott City, Fort Meade, and Annapolis. The state capital is situated on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay a leisurely 35 minute drive from Columbia. Local points of interest are Centennial Park, home of the Athleta Iron Girl Triatholon, Hobbits Glen Golf Course, Iron Bridge Wine Bar, and the many local wineries in the area offer private tours and tastings.
