We visited for our anniversary and ended up being disappointed we only booked one night. The room was beautifully decorated. Breakfast was a real treat. Tom and Denise make you feel welcome at the first hello. They will offer recommendations and suggestions which was wonderful especially since this was our first time to the area. They make themselves completely accessible... More

I have stayed in many B&Bs up and down the east coast, but this one was different in a good way. Tom and Denise were very inviting and accommodating. I highly recommend if you are in the Salem, IN area or passing through this cute farmhouse with great people.

My husband and I met Tom and Deinse right when we'd gotten engaged and were planning to get married on the Knobstone Trail, where we do a lot of hiking. Denise helped me plan my wedding, and they both were gracious hosts to our family who stayed in their very comfortable home. I never heard "no" from either of them.... More

Our FFA chapter generally stays closer to Louisville, KY for our National FFA Convention. However with increased hotel costs in the city and their lack of availability to accommodate our group we searched for Bed and Breakfasts and what a gem we found! Tom and Denise Bessler were wonderful hosts as they learned the names of each of our students... More

Our travel normally takes us to city hotels, but we were so genuinely impressed with this B&B tucked in a wonderful rural setting. You won't meet nicer folks than the owners Denise and Tom, who have lovingly restored and updated this large farmhouse. They anticipate every need while giving you all the space you want. This is your place if... More

Tom and Denise are wonderful hosts at this country B&B. The breakfast was great following a quiet evening of reading on the front porch. This is a great location with two very friendly and warm hosts.

We recently were in Salem for family reunion and stayed with Tom & Denise for 4 nights and could not have asked for a better place to stay. Accomodations are A #!. Clean and comfortable. Food is outstanding. Plenty to eat. Service is excellent. They serve your every need without being pushy. Two of the nicest people you could ever... More

We stayed at The Destination for an anniversary weekend. We visited some of the wineries on the uplands wine trail and this place was a great "in between" place to rest. The innkeepers were very friendly and made us feel very welcomed. Our room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The towels were even soft and fluffy! There's... More
