This delightful bed and breakfast sits directly across the street from Indiana Wesleyan University.The surroundings are verdant and musical with beautiful trees all around and birds happily singing their own welcome. One of the descriptions for The College Inn is "A place to relax." It is, indeed, with it's cozy and clean interior, extremely comfortable beds, and a host who... More

I was taking classes at Indiana Wesleyan University when I found out about College Inn B&B. The saddest part of this was that I hadn't been staying there the whole time. The Inn has been a tremendous find. The innkeeper is friendly and helpful, the inn is beautifully kept and comfortable, and the food is fantastic. The cost is incredibly... More

I was in town for business but forgot to book something in advance. I called the Inn and they were able to get a room ready for me that evening! The place was amazing. Clean, decorative, simple, fresh, exciting, and felt like home. The food tasted great and was actually healthy!

I really enjoyed my stay in Marion, in part because of the nice accommodations at the College Inn. The bed was amazing! I believe it was called a Denver and I plan to try to locate one! I arrived late, but the left instructions, snacks, and my key for me. Breakfast cooked to order. Lovely!

Had a wonderful time at this Bed & Breakfast, never experienced a B&B before but Jack put us completely at ease. I really loved our stay there. We were in Room 1, just lovely and quaint. I cannot believe how they snuggled all that stuff in that house. I did not visit the upstairs. I did see room 2 on... More

I brought my child to visit IWU and I needed a place close by to relax in-between trips to campus. Campus was across the street, the room and inn were charming, the host welcoming, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I highly recommend this inn. I just hope no one reads this so I can always get a room!

We spent 5 nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast. Jack is a gracious host and makes a delicious breakfast! We stayed in room 1; the bed was so comfortable, it was almost a pity to have to get up! Jack's place is an excellent alternative to any chain hotel around.

Extremely comfortable. This place literally is my home away from home as I conduct consulting business in the area. My stays are lengthy. I consistently am here from four to six weeks every few months. Jack is a gracious host. Friendly and a wonderful chef. The decor of this pleasant home is very fashionable and the beds as comfy as...

Such a wonderful visit with Jack! Accommodations were perfect, warming and welcoming. Very clean and yummy snacks too! Breakfast was just like home cooked...delicious! Had a chance to try out a couple of different coffees...both were great! We had a little problem with timing of a college visit and Jack was so wonderful, he welcomed my daughter and fed her...
