This place is an absolute hidden gem so close to downtown Indianapolis. I stayed here because all the major hotel chains were booked-up for a major conference on the dates of my visit but would definitely return. The interior of this property is beautiful, old fashioned American and very impressive. The staff were delightfully welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was... More

We frequently stay at B & B's and enjoy the historic homes and furnishings. This one does a decent job of providing comfortable furnishings - but the "king" bed in our room was so short that my feet hung off and I am only 5'4". I would have liked information available about the history of the home, etc., that is... More

We spent three nights at this b and b and very much enjoyed it. The room was large and comfortable with a good bathroom. The neighborhood is historic and very conveniently located. The Inn offers free parking and internet. Breakfast was delicious, enough choices for both of us.

Found a great deal at this Inn while looking for a room while attending a tradeshow at the convention center. Walked from the convention center on a nice snowy night, which was a good hour trip with a few window shopping stops on the way. There was no desk person when I arrived, but after I called the # provided... More

I just do not even know where to begin. This B&B is a mere 2 miles from the city center of Indy, yet is in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood comprised of large Victorian homes. I spent four nights in downtown Indy for a conference and checked out to spend the weekend at the Looking Glass Inn. I was traveling... More

A very relaxing stay, Cathy was an amazing host, and added a lot to the experience with her calm demeanour and her delicious cooking. The weather was cold wintry and we were able to borrow a snow shovel.

We stayed here for three nights in May 2015 to attend the Indy 500 motor race. We followed our satnav to the street, and our first impression was most-positive. This is a super-pretty small hotel, with free on-street parking in a lovely neighbourhood. Inn-keeper (manager) Cathy met us at the door, took our questions, and took us to our HUGE... More

I have been to a number of B&B's before, but this place follows up like I have never experienced. After we made the reservation on line, there was follow-up, a week before there was follow up, the day of our arrival they also called to make sure all was right. What a group! Oh, yes, there are 3 B&B's connected... More

We really enjoyed our recent stay. Nestled in a very quaint, tree-lined neighborhood. Very friendly and helpful innkeeper. She was willing to accommodate my gluten-free diet and provided a very delicious breakfast. The inn is very clean and well-maintained, furnished with wonderful antiques. Also enjoyed spending some time on the porch swing after breakfast. Truly outstanding value in Indy!

Had a great time at this bed and breakfast. The House was beautiful and true to its time. The bedroom was great and the bed was fantastic, I slept better in it than in my own bed. We stayed in the Green Room and the huge Jacuzzi tub was awesome. We were close enough to downtown that we just walked... More
