I found this lodging option on a general New Harmony, IN website. It mentioned that staying here was a step-back-in-time and that it was a nostalgic feel of the good-old-days. It sure was! As other reviewers have stated, this place isn't for everyone. If you're someone who needs a fitness center, Wi-Fi and other modern amenities, this place certainly isn't... More

When we drove by the house to go around back and park, I said casually, "There's our place," and my sister thought I was kidding! My mom saw her room and burst out laughing. It's... More

Not wanting to stay in a traditional hotel whilst visiting New Harmony, a girlfriend and I opted to stay at The Old Rooming Inn. When speaking to the owner by telephone, he had no pretensions about the place and he was right. He seemed a delightful fellow, never saw him but spoke a couple or so times. Payment is on... More
