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... More

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.

We just got back from spending 2 nights at the Ashley Drake B&B. We were there for a swim meet at the local high school. This was our first experience at a B&B and we are blown away! Kim is a fantastic innkeeper! We just adored her. There were 4 of us staying in the Heritage room. It was spacious... More

Work brings me to Johnson county for a couple days a week. I've been staying at the Ashley-Drake for a month now. Kim and her family are so good to me. I feel like an honored guest. Each evening I turn in my menu for breakfast: what I want, when I want it. It is a lovely, comfortable place. Every... More

Dear B & B people, My wife and I just returned from a very peaceful and restful stay at the Ashely-Drake in Franklin, IN. It was a celebration of finishing up our respective school years. Kim and family made us feel more than welcomed and at rest the entire time. If you enjoy a break from the ordinary, step back... More

Found the Ashley Drake on the way to Florida from Michigan. Liked it so much, we planned our trip back home to include a return visit. Beautifully restored home with incredible detail. Breakfast made to order. Very clean and welcoming. Will stay again. Kim the innkeeper is accommodating and friendly.
