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

Looking Glass Inn is just a 10 minute walk to Mass Ave, an area filled with local restaurants and theaters. We had a lovely room, and despite being in the heart of Indianapolis, it was quiet at night. Breakfast Monday through Friday is continental, but there was lots of variety. We'd definitely stay there again.

This hotel is in a very pretty part of the city, on a narrow one way street with old frame houses lining each side. I had to wait for the "innkeeper" since I had arrived late, but that was no problem since it was so pleasant to sit on the front porch swing! My room was very tastefully decorated in... More

We stayed at the Looking Glass to go to an event in downtown Indianapolis. Breakfast was delicious and promptly served. Nice to have time to enjoy the shared spaces -- read in one of two living rooms, make tea in the butler's pantry and then take to room.

Kathy, the innkeeper, was a wonderful hostess. We really enjoyed talking to her. We stayed in the Hideaway room, which is huge! After thanksgiving dinner with the family, we had the entire family up to our room for the evening and it accommodated 20 of us easily. With a kitchen right in the room to heat up leftovers and a...

Our stay at the Looking Glass Inn was completely pleasant. We were greeted quickly, shown around the house, and taken to our room. We were told were the snacks were located, how to enter and exit, where to park, etc. Our room was beautiful, and roomy. We had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious, and the dining room was gorgeous.... More

We found this gem when we were coming to Indianapolis for an event at the Lucas Oil Stadium. Such a wonderful alternative to a hotel room! I would always recommend booking directly with any bed & breakfast and not booking thru a booking website (i.e., Expedia). All of the contact I had with the manager of this bed & breakfast... More
