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

After making last minute changes to my itinerary, I needed a room at the last minute. I called Scholar's Inn to check availability and was told that there was a room available and that I could have it right away even though it was will before check-in time. Rachel was so kind and gracious and went out of her way... More

We have stayed here once before while visiting my daughter in college and loved it. At that time we had the back bedroom and it was very quiet. On this trip we stayed in the Charles Austin Beard (CAB) room. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. The Inn is over 100 years old and is... More

A group of us took over Scholar's Inn for a weekend reunion. The staff was really, really sweet and welcoming. Just a pleasure to be around. I was delighted that despite it's convenient downtown location, there was no street noise at night making for a good-night's sleep. The living room area was perfect for night-caps with the group. The Inn... More

Wanting to try something new, we looked online and found the Scholars Inn. All the photos looked wonderful and it all sounded wonderful. When we arrived and went inside, we were surprised at how slanted the house was! ...even the floors. We asked to change rooms because of this, which the staff were gracious and accommodated us. When we went... More
