I have traveled to and stayed at numerous B&B's in Indiana and Kentucky - The Prairie Guest House has quickly become our favorite! We just spent our 2nd visit at this delightful establishment on August 13, 2016 for our anniversary. Even with the gloomy rainy weather - you will smile and feel happy with the relaxing feel of the guest... More

We stayed after visiting above and were very happy we did. Karen got us settled in and we really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was super. The entire stay was great. My wife and I plan to stay again when we come back to the area. Thank you John and Karen.

My husband and I stayed at the Prairie Guest House as an over night from a concert. The place was beautiful, but you had to find it first. This is not an easy feat in the dark of night. The owners were out of town so another lady was running the place. I know nothing about Indianapolis and was hoping... More

I stay at the Prairie Guest House about once a year because because it is close to my event venue. It is always a pleasure to stay and the rooms are excellent and I love the history of the house. John goes out of his way to make sure your needs are met. It is an affordable, fun place to... More

We stayed here to be convenient to Conner Prairie. The reservation process was easy, and they noted my child's request for breakfast. We were conveniently located next to Conner Prairie for the concert, which was so much fun. And to top it off, our breakfast was delicious. Thanks!

So quaint and sweet. Just like staying with friends. Same price as a motel with so much more to offer. Thick towels; crisp, clean sheets; the room smelled wonderful; real kleenex, not the thin paper stuff...it's the details. The goat soap is wonderful! Can't think of anything negative except that I could only be there one night and had to... More

Thanks for the lovely review, I'm glad you liked the goat milk soap! They are hand-made by a local artisan living on a goat farm about 30 minutes north of our property. We just started offering them to our guests and we're loving them! More

The old house is nicely renovated but the highlight of the visit both this time and our previous stay is the personal touch by John, Karen, and the staff. That and the breakfast!! Additionally since we were visiting friends at Connor Prairie, the location is perfect.

My brother and I drove my 69 Fiat from Cincinnati to be part of a display of Italian cars at a church festival.

Very relaxing place. Nice breakfast. Only negative thing was there was a carpet staple coming up from where the carpet meets tile, in the bathroom. Every time I walked to the bathroom I found that staple with my foot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Let us help you to get away from the city and still be close to everything. Excellent food, great lodging, and wonderful nights sleep, and relaxing yoga. When you get here you will know you are in the right place. The Prairie Guest House is a farm-like setting located on 2 acres in Hamilton County Indiana. With beautiful gardens, large native Indiana trees, and our very own barn, the Prairie Guest House takes you back to a simpler time. The mid 1800’s gothic farmhouse has large guest rooms each with their own bath facilities, and great common areas to relax and enjoy your stay here will be comfortable. The early 1900’s cottage houses the kitchen and dinning areas, with a sunroom that glows all day long. We are also very lucky to have one of the best Yoga instructors in the area teach in the Prairie Yoga Studio located across the courtyard from your guest room. Directly north of Indianapolis only 30-45 minutes to downtown Indy. ... more   less
