My husband and I and our good friend stayed here for 4 nights in May, 2012. The purpose of our trip was to attend our friend's daughter's (our God-daughters) graduation from Purdue. When we arrived at 11:30 at night we did, we admit, have our doubts. The outside was a bit unkept and the empty swimming pool and abandoned old home next door seemed erie. The enclosed porch room we entered before entering the front door was filled with storage items and "this and that" which left the impression of "junk". But the actual front door was beautiful wood and glass and we could see into the lovely old home. George had waited up for us and from the minute he greeted us warmly our stay was wonderful. He and Lee are warm, welcoming, and very interesting Inn Keepers and their daughter, Leslie, is an excellent chef.
This property is from an elegant period of history, and filled with many fascinating items that are from Europe, the Southern US, and other parts of the country. If someone is overwhelmed by the amount, and eclectic style, it might not be appreciated, but if you take time to look at the various items, and ask George about them, you are in for an amazing history lesson. This property has been in the family for almost 180 years and there are many fascinating stories about the development of the area, the homes themselves, and the families that have lived in them.
Having travelled overseas, we are used to old buildings and rooms with old style furnishings. Our room (the Autumn Room) was very nice. If someone wants a Holiday Inn experience, this would not be the place to book, but if you want a nice clean room with a very comfortable bed, and furnishings that are each pieces of history, this is the place to choose!
The grounds are beautiful. They currently are in some need of attention due to issues of health and exceptionally hot weather, that have prevented the Innkeepers from their usual landscape maintenance. But there are wonderful places to sit by the pond or under trees and enjoy conversation, reading, and a cool drink.
We had three days of interesting sight seeing including walking the labyrinth and strolling along the river in Logansport. One day we went to Delphi and went on the canal boats and visited the very interesting Interpretive Center. We spent several hours walking the canal paths. We went to Americus and had a delicious catfish dinner at a local roadhouse type restaurant, Roberts. This restaurant has a colorful history of its own dating back to Prohibition.
Lee and George made this trip a learning experience as they shared stories that took us on a trip through time. They are warm, generous, and interesting people who did everything possible to make our stay special. Memories of our stay at Inntiquity will be with us for a long time as we remember our special graduation weekend in Indiana. Thank you, George and Lee.
