We stayed one night at this B&B for our anniversary. We loved the fresh baked snacks and movie library that was provided during our stay. The breakfast was delicious and the owner Gary is an awesome host. We will be back! We also enjoyed the jet tub that was located in our spacious room.

We stayed at the Old Northside Bed and Breakfast with family for the 4th of July weekend. We had a great time while we were in Indianapolis and really enjoyed our stay. Gary's hospitality was great, we enjoyed the breakfast and having snacks around during the day was a nice bonus. When in Indianapolis again, we will definitely come back... More

We stayed at Old Northside B & B for three days during the Indianapolis 500 this past weekend. We could not have had a more wonderful time there. Gary was the most delightful and fascinating host and we wish we had had more time to spend talking with him. The Inn itself is lovely and our room was a perfect... More

This is an extraordinary property with hosts who provide an astounding experience! The building itself is a Territorial home with a stunning, fully-restored Victorian interior. The home is full of history!! Not only is it beautiful to look at, but innkeepers Mr. And Mrs. Hofmeister make it a joy to be a guest. The Inn is homey, comfortable and located... More

We stayed at this Inn for my birthday. Gary was an incredible host! We will definitely return! The Hollywood room was very fun. Breakfast and the snack bar with Gary's homemade cookies were superb! This was a birthday to remember!

My husband, Daryl, raved about his trip to Indy this past March all due to his interesting stay at your Inn! Your hospitality, Gary, was exceptional and breakfast was wonderful! I can't wait to join him on his next trip to Indy from Cleveland! I will come for sure!

We stayed at Old Northside for a weekend getaway. Located in an historical mansion just north of downtown, Innkeeper Gary Hofmeister oversees a first class guesthouse. Comfortable beds, quiet surroundings, fresh baked cookies and hundreds of DVD and VHS movies to watch in your room. Gary is always there to give directions, provide information about a restaurant, or to discuss... More

Room was not very clean and in need of repair. There was what appeared to be cat hair on the bedspread and cloudy spots. The carpet in the room did not look swept. The curtains were coming off the wall next to water damage seen on both corner walls. The carpet in the bathroom was pieced with bath rugs around... More
