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

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

Staff was very friendly and incredibly helpful. The historic home is charming and each room is unique. The breakfast in the morning is yummy and the Scholars in restaurant is AMAZING! I encourage you to try it if you like B & B style stays.

Scholars B&B is thoroughly quaint and charming. The Inn is a beautifully maintained historical home near both downtown and the university. Each room has its own character and charm. All accommodations were clean and the service was excellent. Beverages and fresh baked scones and cookies greeted our arrival. In the morning fresh coffee was available outside our rooms and a...

I stay at Scholars Inn at least once a month for business. I am constantly overwhelmed by the friendly and accommodating nature of the staff here. I've always felt incredibly welcome and at home. The building is beautiful, old and charming and always very clean. Breakfast is delicious and they always have soda, coffee and juice in the fridge. They... More

The Inn is a beautiful relaxing home. Each room is uniquely decorated. We had a relaxing and comfortable experience. The staff had coffee waiting for us as we woke. Very friendly staff and an extremely clean Inn. The patio area is absolutely lovely. Was hard to believe we're so close to downtown and IU.
