We stayed here when in Franklin for a wedding and really enjoyed both the place and the inn keeper. The breakfasts were amazing and the rooms beautifully kept. Much more interesting (and affordable) than staying in the big chain hotels. The family also owns a candy shop just down the road from the inn. That's a great place to visit... More

Kim and Craig are wonderful hosts. Our family rented 3 of their rooms and they made a great weekend even better. We are returning for a family reunion in the future. The food is wonderful. If you are looking for something special this is the place. Hands down one of the best ever.

Kim and Craig are fantastic hosts. I was at the Ashley Drake over Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed downtown Franklin and Johnson County. I'm relocating to Franklin in about a month and Kim was a treasure trove of information about the historical homes of Franklin and the area. AMAZING breakfasts -- The selection is out of this world and... More

I cannot sing the praises of Ashley-Drake Historic Inn enough. The innkeeper is very welcoming. The rooms beautiful, centrally located. We always stay here when we are in town. The breakfast is homemade and huge.

I was a lone traveler, Upstairs, Depot Room. It is obvious that Kim has the B&B business down-pat. Guests don't lack for anything. Room was quaint & full bed very comfortable for 1 person. There were other guests in room next door - I did not hear conversation, but I think both rooms shared the same creaking floor boards, which... More

Great accommodations! Quaint and very warm with personal touches. They are great hostesses! Serving from their hearts the great breakfasts they offer. Totally enjoyed our stay! Near the center of old downtown, within walking distance. Great antique shops, candy store and boutiques.

I'm not a fan of b&b so my boyfriend and I only planned to stay one night and go to a hotel the next night. Well the hostess was really sweet. Sshe conversed with us and told us about the sights. Unlike some b&bs she didn't stay to talk forever. Just pleasant hospitality. She left treats out at night like... More

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
