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

I contacted Gary pretty last minute to send my parents away for their 40th wedding anniversary. He was very prompt and available every time I contacted him. Even though my parents arrived late, Gary was there to greet them at the door! My parents stayed in the bridal room for 2 nights and enjoyed the nice comforts of having a... More

Located in a charming location, with ample parking in the back, the inn is wonderful old house with lots of character. Gary is a warm, gracious host who welcomed us upon arrival. First things first - homemade cookies were front and center, along with bottled water and soda. I actually ate four of the cookies that night - sorry, Gary.... More

My wife & I stayed at this bed & breakfast several weeks ago, and it was our first time staying at a B&B. The house was beautiful, the location was great (close to the city), and Gary was an exemplary host. We could not have asked for a better first experience, with the only regret being that we could not... More

My husband and I went to Indianapolis for our 25th anniversary and he found this charming B&B as a surprise for me. It was wonderful! Gary, the owner, is great. The location is very convenient to everything you'd want to do in Indy and the rooms were beautiful (we stayed in the Bridal Room). The snacks and entertainment choices if... More

We came to Indy to watch a Colts game and stayed here after the game. Absolutely loved this place! Gary is a wonderful host, everything was perfect! Breakfast was delicious, more snacks than any bed and breakfast we've stayed at, just a very nice touch. Looking forward to coming back later this year.
