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.

We have been visiting Indianapolis for the past 7 summers for DCI World Championships and only in our final visit did we discover Old Northside Inn. It was a charming experience and we very much enjoyed meeting our host, Gary. Highly recommend his venue to other travelers.

This was our first trip to Indy as tourists. In light of that, Old Northside was an excellent place to stay. The location was very convenient. Gary gave great driving directions to the sights we wanted to see. The room was comfortable, allowing for an peaceful nights sleep. The generous breakfast and pleasant conversation got our sight-seeing off to a... More

We bid on this at a silent auction. Living only approx 30 mins away, we went here for an anniversary getaway weekend. We were given the bridal suite. It was romantic with a quiet charm, It was very interesting to walk through the house. There were pictures of the proprietor and his family as well as many well known people.... More

My wife and I were given a night's stay for our 50th wedding anniversary, and an interesting stay it was. Gary met us at the door and gave us a brief tour of the spacious old home built in 1885. It is modernized without sacrificing the charm of 10' ceilings and original woodwork throughout. He has a huge collection of... More

This Bed & Breakfast is still one of our favorites. The 24 hour snacks assortment, with homemade cookies included, and beverages readily available, The proprietor is friendly, and more than accommodating in every way, Private parking allows for added convenience and it is convenient to all events in downtown Indy,

Pros: Location, off-street parking, the hostess. Cons: Overall, the inn is oddly decorated. I counted 51 plastic flower arrangements in the common areas. There is so much stuff that you can't appreciate the fireplace, woodwork, architecture, etc. A good cleaning would help. Only saw our room (Tiffany) and the 'Wedding Suite.' Our room was as filled with as much stuff... More

The charm of this Bed and Breakfast is never-ending. It starts with a knock at the back door, and we are greeted into the now familiar smell of baking cookies and banana bread. Our host has thought of every possible comfort, including a pantry full of sweet and salty snacks, soft drinks and the aforementioned cookies. Seasonal displays and a... More

Had 15 family members in town for Thanksgiving and needed a "home away from home" for many of them. I contacted Gary, the Innkeeper, who was incredibly helpful in making arrangements and accommodating our needs. The rooms were private and comfortable. Gary's hospitality was supurb. They all raved about the cookie jar. Besides being a great place to stay, it... More

My wife and I stayed in the Tiffany Room for our anniversary. The room was very nice. It had a 2 person jacuzzi, large walk-in shower, large closet, and comfortable king size bed. We really liked the fireplace, and the way the window above the bed glowed at night. I will try to include pics. There were plenty of snacks... More
