Very friendly staff, convenient location, and great brunch! Just an overnight stay to attend a wedding, but wish we could have stayed longer! Large, comfortable room, although without an en suite bathroom we had to use one down the hall that was dedicated to our room with a separate key. Since we were there over a Saturday night and they... More

Don't let the grounds distract you. Although the grounds may look a bit unkempt, what's inside the B&B is worth it. Spent four days here, and the staff couldn't have been more hospitable! Welcoming and more than accommodating! I was made to feel right at home. This was my first B&B experience, and i think it spoiled me. I hope... More

Terrific bed and breakfast adjacent to an also pretty wonderful restaurant of the same name. We loved our room; beds were comfortable (an issue for me), everything was spotlessly clean, great breakfast with a good range of possible dishes. We will be back!

Great price for a wonderful room-stayed in the AFJ Suite- enjoyed a great breakfast on the patio. The staff was great and for a small price we were able to have our child meet us at the Inn for breakfast.

We stayed in Annie's Room which is just off the kitchen (not a good location due to morning noise). Just a basic room with a tiny bath. This is a house in back of the restaurant. Grounds/parking area are not well maintained and the house has a sort of worn appearance. Friendly staff and nice breakfast

My family stayed here for my wedding last weekend, and we also had our reception dinner at the Scholar's Inn Restaurant right next door to the Bed and Breakfast.They went above and beyond for me and my family to make sure they were comfortable and that the dinner was perfect. I strongly recommend both the B&B and Restaurant to anyone... More

Came to Bloomington to relax and celebrate our anniversary. Scholars Inn is much better than a hotel. Rachel, our hostess made vegan breakfast to order; found storage for our bikes; and made us welcomed in every way. This is our third stay and we will be back. Don't miss the granola!

My wife and I stayed here June 5th, for an anniversary getaway. The staff was extremely accommodating and received us with well wishes. The room was fresh and well put together. We enjoyed dinner next door, where they had a private candlelit table waiting for us. We would highly recommend it. Rachel, the B+B manager couldn't be nicer or more... More

Our room was on the first floor right off the kitchen and included lovely furnishings and a huge comfortable bed...it was awesome. Breakfasts were cooked daily by delightful and helpful staff members. Nothing was too much trouble for Rachel the manager of the Inn. We have sent messages to family information about Scholars Inn so they may include on their... More

My husband and I were planning a relaxing weekend away when I came across this charming B&B. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of all of the staff and the charm of the house and all the guest rooms. Clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful! Sundays you get a gift cerificate to have brunch at their restaurant... More
