It's a great place. I stayed in a different building (connected to the original house by a beautiful garden) and found it really wonderful. Breakfast was amazing--the chef made pancakes that were the lightest I've ever experienced and the choices on the buffet were very good. I stayed there once before and was upset because no one was on hand...

WOW!!! I can't believe that we never knew of this charming place. It has a delightful courtyard to enjoy a morning cup of coffee, or have a wedding. From the moment you walk in you feel like you are at home, not a cold hotel, Laura was so sweet and chatted with us and offered our son a homemade chocolate...

Beautiful Inn and close to campus and downtown. The room is spacious and a very comfortable bed with lovely bedding. The breakfast is fantastic and there is something for everyone. The warm breakfast casserole was great and the fresh fruit a nice compliment. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed our morning conversation as was there on business. Love...

My wife and I stayed at the Showers Inn for the Hoosier Half marathon we run every year. The Inn was the best place we have stayed outside our former grungy grad school digs. We stayed in the Cassatt room, which was plenty large for the two of us. The bathroom had lovely tile and a shower with great water...

Great property! I loved it! Great bed and breakfast. I've been here twice for IU events, and would gladly stay every time I have to be in town if there was availability! It is a popular destination for IU big weekends, so book early! The breakfast was homemade and absolutely suburb!

Everything about this B&B was excellent. The room was adorable, super spotless, and had a cozy fireplace. The breakfast was delicious. The hostess serving breakfast was so kind and helpful. I was in town for business and pleasure. This is a wonderful place to stay for a former alumni such as myself and now that I've stayed, I'll definitely come...

Showers Inn was a lovely setting for our return to Bloomington and revisiting the IU campus. We had adjoining rooms which was perfect for visiting and catching up. The beds were very comfortable, amenities plentiful, and our breakfasts were hot and delicious thanks to Chef Brad. All members of the staff were welcoming, kind and helpful. I look forward to...

“Most comfortable bed...EVER!!! The room was spotlessly clean, all updated bathroom, mini fridge that fits a wine bottle and leftover meals from your dinner out. ”

“I've stayed in two rooms, both were beautiful and picturesque, the Lazy River and the Cool Evening. My favorite was the Lazy River. It had a fireplace, a large living area, a kitchenette, and large bathroom. The Cool Evening was very similar, but without the fireplace. I stayed there in January, so the fireplace was nice!”
