Schenck Mansion was a quiet, rejuvenating get away in the small town of Vevay. I loved the small town charm, and the fact that there were no fast food restaurants - just fun dining experiences. The Mansion itself has a lot of history and is located close to the Ohio River, set on a hill in town. The property is... More

We got a gift certificate from one of our children for Christmas and spent 2 nights there this weekend. Michelle, the "innkeeper", goes out of her way to make everyone comfortable and provide all the comforts of home. The rooms are enormous and it is extremely quiet. It was our first trip to a B&B, so we didn't know what... More

I found the Schenck Mansion while researching my family name. I had never heard of Vevay, Indiana but loved the idea of staying in a Mansion with my name. My husband and I had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before so we were excited and it was better than we could have ever imagined. We spent 4 nights... More

I was in between business trips and had a weekend in the Cincinnati area. I decided to perform some long overdue family history research in the Vevay area. I found the Schenck Mansion a delightful surprise. The innkeeper, Michelle, is a knowledgeable and sweet host. The breakfast is wonderful and the setting unparalleled in the area. You sleep in a...

We have been to several B&B's in the past so we knew what to expect. However, this property is so amazing and probably not enough adjectives to properly describe it. There are not a lot of pictures on the website of the grounds or the common areas. They are something you have to see in person to appreciate. Absolutely stunning... More

First trip to a bed & breakfast and I’m afraid that Michele may have set the bar too high for any other B&B that I may visit. The house is amazing and a lot of effort has gone into restoring it to its natural beauty. Michele gave us a tour of the house upon our arrival and shared the history... More

Another great stay at the mansion. This was our third stay here in the last four visits to the area. As always the stay was delightful, we had the only down stairs room and enjoyed the private porch, This is one of our favorite B & B's and we look forward to staying there again on our next trip to...

Thank you Michelle, for a wonderful time in the Schenck Mansion B&B. We booked this B&B because we were traveling through southern Indiana, and the Tripadvisor seemed too good to be true. We were correct in thinking this would be worth the minor detour in our trip. We enjoyed the Suite on the second floor, and our friends stayed in... More

A hidden treasure in Southern Indiana, you will find the Schenck Mansion overlooking Vevay, Indiana. The owners of the Bed and Breakfast did a great job bringing the mansion back to its full glory days. Great history and the breakfast is great too.....

I traveled with ten friends to rent out the Schenck Mansion in historic Vevay, IN. Since it has a long history, and is reported to be haunted, we thought it would be fun to stay and do our own little ghost investigation. This lovely B&B has been restored to its former glory. Maureen the manager, made our visit so welcoming,... More
