“Homey B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2010

Very cute farmhouse inn. Friendly service, great breakfast with local ingredients. The 'hideaway room' comes with its own bathroom and access to a great little outdoor reading porch. If you mind road noise, ask for a room at the back of the house.

Our first stay at Sycamore Farms was so wonderful, there was no question where we would stay the next time we were in Indiana! Once again, the rooms were spotless, the food delicious, and the staff was warm and welcoming. You can't ask for better! And when my boyfriend forgot his (brand new, foolishly expensive) charger for his iPad in the room after we had left, we sent Marilyn an e-mail and the charger was mailed to us within a few days. It doesn't seem like much, but small details like that matter. I will stay here again and again!

We arrived at the Sycamore Bed & Breakfast at roughly six o’clock on Sunday night (after a small stint with some construction that was taking place on Poplar Road). The innkeeper Marilyn, who was very friendly, greeted us.

After a brief tour of the home, which had a lot of character (and many beautiful rooms), Marilyn took us up to our room and went through the some useful details (make sure to duck when you take the back staircase). We stayed in the Master Room, which was simple and beautiful. Attached to this room is a small patio with a table and two chairs. Fortunately, the weather was amazing and cool for an August evening, and we took full advantage of this outdoor space.

After unpacking, we went to dinner, and then returned to the bed and breakfast. We stopped and spoke with Marilyn before we headed back to our room. My fiancé started talking about how we found this place, and that he had an orientation the following morning at Indiana State University. He is extremely passionate about Colonial History and is getting ready to start graduate school this fall (hence the reason that we came down), and another reason of why we choose this place to stay. We ended up finding out that Marilyn had also attended Indiana State University in the History Graduate Program.

Kevin went downstairs to order two glasses of wine, which were quite delicious. He and I just enjoyed our time sitting out on the patio sipping our wine and engaging in some conversation.

The following morning we awoke the smell of breakfast cooking. Our breakfast was delicious and Marilyn even left us a card with some more “insider” information about the History Department and some Professors that Kevin may enjoy taking courses. We loved our experience at the Sycamore Bed & Breakfast and I know that we will be back again in the near future.

  • Liked — The innkeper Marilyn was fantastic!
  • Disliked — The back narrow staircase.

When I first tried to make a reservation online, I waited several days for a response before deciding to call. No need to worry, my reservation was secure.... they were just backed up with their e-mail correspondence??? This was my introduction to Sycamore Farms, a gem of a B&B in the making that's still a bit rough around the edges.

Arriving around 6 on a Tuesday evening, we were a bit surprised to see all of the activity about the barn and in the house. After introducing ourselves and asking if they were expecting us, we learned that we were indeed expected, but that they were hosting two separate dinners that evening.... one in the downstairs area of the house and the other in the barn. After taking our overnight bag up to the room, we decided to drive over to see our daughter a bit earlier than planned and vacate the premises. All was well by the time we returned around 9 and we had the place to ourselves for the rest of the evening.

Breakfast the next morning was served in the Sun Room, promptly at 8:30 as promised and it was delicious! After finishing, we went out for a walk along the National Road Heritage Trail and returned to our room about 11. After cleaning up a bit, we went downstairs and observed that no one had yet arrived for the daily lunch.... so we inquired if it would be appropriate to bring our daughter and new grandbaby over for lunch. The response was affirmative and again the food was delicious.

After spending the rest of the day with our family members, we returned to Sycamore Farms to retire. Unfortunately Mother Nature decided to put on a sound & light show during the night and we awoke to find that the power was out. After locating a couple of flashlight/nightlights that were wisely located in each room, we dressed and began packing up to leave. The young chef who was to serve us breakfast made his way upstairs by candlelight to check on us and explained that he could go out for rolls,etc. but that the kitchen was down. We asked instead if he could just take something off the bill for the last night, which he graciously did.

In summary, the rooms at Sycamore Farms are lovely. Access to the Sunrise and Sunset rooms is gained by ascending the main stairway. The Hideaway and Master Room, which we occupied, are reached by a narrow back staircase where the footing is far more treacherous. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will return again when we next visit our daughter for further adventures at Sycamore Farms.

  • Liked — The flexibility of the staff in trying to accommodate us during our visit.
  • Disliked — Occasional group dinners could force overnight guests to stay in their rooms until 9 or vacate the premises.

historicinns, Owner at Sycamore Farm Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, December 4, 2007
Thank you for the lovely review! We very much appreciate the helpful suggestions. For clarity, the main floor of the Farmhouse is a full service restaurant with regular restaurant hours called ButtonWoods. The Red Barn at Sycamore Farm is a banquet and meeting facility with regularly scheduled events. ButtonWoods at the Farm, The Red
Barn at Sycamore Farm, and the B&B all comprise Historic Sycamore Farm B&B Inn.

Traveling on Hwy. 70 we wanted to stay in a bed and breakfast for the night and came upon this lovely place. The location was ideal, about two miles from the hwy. and situated between woods and an upscaled new subdivision. A large red barn set next to the house, being renovated for receptions. Guests rooms are upstairs and a tea room/restaurant for special occasions is on the main floor. We stayed
in the Master's room and found it to be very comfortable. We were unable to hook up with the wireless connection as advertised, and there wasn't a DVD player or any snacks provided. Breakfast was served in the sun room, bright and charming. The food was wonderful, all homemade, fresh eggs with turkey sausage, fresh fruit parfait, muffins, etc. The kitchen was amazing, all new stainless steel appliances. Quite impressive. The innkeeper, Marilyn, was very friendly and helpful. I wish the place were closer to my home, because I would go there for lunch often. It is a SLOW down place to be.
