From the warm welcome to the hug after a 2 night stay from a new found friend our stay was exceptional! Cookies and brownies for guests with coffee, tea and water were offered. Our breakfasts equalled those of the very best chefs--fruit filled cornucopias, souffles, warm coffee cakes, stuffed French toast---totally over the top. Every detail was for the comfort... More

Jim and Linda will make your visit one to remember and repeat time and again! We were welcomed in as part of the family. We stayed two nights and spent an entire day lounging around in our room, in the porch swing, and viewing the gardens. Linda is an amazing cook! She had fresh baked sugar cookies the first night...

When you come here the first time, I can virtually guarantee you will keep looking for reasons to come back again and again! I come for the Indy 500, but stay for 2 weeks to visit with friends who have become family. The Ivy House is a charm, in a perfect small town only 10 mins away from the highway.... More

My wife and I stayed a night here for our anniversary. We were greeted by fresh baked oatmeal raisin cookies and a selection of teas and sodas. The home is beautiful on the inside, and spotless. Our bed was very comfortable, and the air was fresh and clean. There is free wifi throughout the house with a strong and fast... More

We stayed at the Ivy House when we were in town for a concert at the Klipsch Center. It is a perfect location from the venue. Even if the drive had been longer, it would have been worth the stay. The house is beautiful, clean, great towels and linens, tasty cookies awaited your night time return, and breakfast in the... More

We stayed here while visiting family and found the inn to have a wonderful atmosphere. Our hostess was wonderful and had great suggestions for restaurants in the area. We certainly would stay here again.

Fine food, wonderful accommodations, quiet environment, caring innkeepers. We couldn't not have stayed at a more welcoming inn. My husband and I were in town so that I could attend a horsemanship clinic in Noblesville. Lucky for us, all of the hotels were booked in Noblesville. It was an easy ride each day to the barn in Noblesville and every... More

Our first time at the Ivy House B & B, but it won't be our last. What a heartwarming, down home feeling we had there. It was immaculate in every way, the whole house was decorated so beautifully and with such love. Linda takes such care and time to make sure everything is just right, like fresh towels daily, turning... More

We were visiting family in Fishers and chose Ivy House instead of a conventional Hotel. So happy we did! The house is beautiful and the rooms are impecably clean. We were only 10 minutes away from Fishers on a local scenic road so the location was great. The owner Linda was very welcoming ang cooked us a wonderful breakfast. We... More
