Kim and Craig are wonderful, very friendly. I normally do not eat breakfast but the food there was too good to pass up. The rooms are quaint. Each room has its own theme. The Inn is easy to find if you follow the directions from their website. Shopping close by and only 20 minutes from Indianapolis makes this B&B the... More

My fiancé and I spent 2 nights there. As other guests stated Kim and her family made us feel like we were old friends. The breakfast was awesome and made from scratch as other guests put in there reviews. The atmosphere at the Ashley -Drake B&B is perfect for a getaway weekend from the everyday life. We will come back... More

Julie and I lucked into a cancelation this past weekend and couldn't have been more pleased and satisfied with our weekend at the Ashley Drake! We arrived as guests and left feeling like old friends. Even the other guests we met made us feel welcome and at home. Where else can you have a cooked to order breakfast and spend... More

I grew up in Franklin. Moved away my senior year of high school. I have been gone from the area 30 years now but still have many friends in the area. Also Nashville IN is close, (just 35 min.), so I also stay at the Ashley-Drake Historic Inn Garden when I want to shop there. Greenwood and Edinburgh are close... More

Smiles and great conversation await at the Ashley Drake Inn! We were made to feel at home from the time we pulled into the parking lot. Kim and Craig are great hosts...rooms are excellent...loved the old, wooden floors throughout! The Heritage Room was affordable, and very nicely decorated...first impression was, 'I'd like to come back to this place again!' Attention... More

We were needing a quiet, family friendly place. This was perfect! We found a "treat bag" in our room, the children where given some special "treats" also. The rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast was very good, though if you prefer small breakfasts, be sure to mention that! Otherwise you will have too much food. Kim has a...

First time at a Bed and Breakfast and I must say it was great. The house was beautiful and the rooms were historic. Kim was so nice and hospitable and made you feel right at home. I loved staying there and I will be back.

What a great place to be. The house was breathtaking with all its history and well decorated. Top notch hospitality could have not asked for better. It exceeded my expectations by far. I truly enjoyed my stay and will be back.

My daughter and I spent two nights at this lovely inn while in Indiana for a meeting/vacation. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. Kim and her family took good care of us – lots of personal attention such as offering me a cup of coffee to go when I headed out on an early morning errand before... More
