Solomon Mier is a gorgeous, large mansion located right near downtown Ligonier. The manor is absolutely amazing with its beauty, furnishings, original woodwork, painted murals, mosaic tiling, and all kinds of hidden antique details and surprises to find. My husband and I stayed in the Amelia room for our annual Shipshewana trip over Memorial Day. The Amelia room is beautiful and comfortable. The beds were outstanding and so comfortable I fell asleep instantly with none of the "this is not my bed at home" awkwardness. Amanda and her husband hand-delivered delicious cookies in the evening and gave us advice on where to eat in town. There are a lot of Hispanic businesses in the area and we ate at a taqueria a few blocks down. It was delicious. This is a sleepy town, so there is not much to do in the evening but relax, which was fine with me at the time. We were invited to look at the other rooms in the manor and while they had their own charm, the Amelia room felt bigger and had more amenities (such as a bathtub). So I loved the room we were in, but might have not been as pleased with a different room. It would be great if there were more things to do around town after 5 or so. It would also be great if the manor was less expensive - then I could stay multiple nights! The service was great, breakfast in the morning was incredible! The manor was also exceptionally clean, which made it even more impressive. I cannot wait to stay here again.
