We loved staying at Murphy Guest House. Ann Andre is the main reason for such a beautiful experience. Her attention to detail and her friendly, welcoming hospitality plus her extraordinary culinary skills made our visit to northern Indiana top notch. The central location made seeing the full Heritage Trail very manageable. We felt like we were home with our best... More

My husband and I stayed at Murphy Guest House as the result of a gift certificate from my siblings for our wedding. The stay was wonderful. Ann greeted us warmly and invited us to try any of the teas waiting for the tasting. She had so many to choose from! The bed was comfortable and we overslept our first morning!... More

Stayed here for the second time, taking my daughter to her music camp. After a long day on the road, grappling with Chicago traffic, it's heaven to be greeted cheerfully and calmly by Ann, and to enter that beautiful home. The room with the 2 twin beds is perfect for us, and the plate of snacks was to die for... More

We LOVED our stay at Murphy's Guest House. Ann is the ideal hostess. Her attention to detail is exemplary. Upon arrival, we had a plate of snacks waiting for us with chocolate dipped strawberries, complete with our initials! The fact that she had wonderful toiletries, turn-down bed with mints, an unbelievable assortment of teas to drink whenever you want, bottled... More

This B&B is truly a gem and a rare find. It has charming exterior with a whimsical garden. The interior is beautifully staged with antique furnishings. From the second you walk in the door you get this overwhelming feeling of warmth. Ann was kind and very knowledgable about the area. She went above and beyond to make sure our stay... More

We had a delightful stay at Murphy Guest House. Ann is a gem. She is a fabulous inn keeper/chef and very enjoyable to chat with over breakfast. Breakfast was gourmet and Ann sees to every detail. Flowers from the garden, snacks and little tubs of ice cream are just a few of the treats! Exceptional!

I had a wonderful stay. Ann's attention to detail & interest/attention in the reason for my visit created an exceptional experience. A foodie in every sense -- Ann is a tasty, creative & artful chef; displays a wall of teas to choose from; provides several salt options & offers ginger candies! My room was clean, comfortable & quiet. I will... More

We had a wonderful stay. Don't let the typical traditional victorian house fool you, nothing about they stay was a typical bed and breakfast. From the vast number of teas options, to homemade cookies daily, to the personal touches in the room. Ann's attention to the detail made it a wonderful experience. The breakfast was not only abundant but flavorful.... More

This Bed and Breakfast experience is unlike any other. You will not believe the degree of thoughtfulness, kindness , and hospitality that Ann, the owner, gives from the second you arrive. I would give examples of such, but I honestly font want to spoil one thing for the first time visitor. If there was something that could have been added,... More
