This dinner was incredible! We could not have asked for a more delicious meal. There is such history to the town, inn, and restaurant which creates a really unique ambiance. I would definitely recommend coming here for a meal!

We attended a wedding at the Story Inn this past weekend. Despite torrential rain, it was still absolutely beautiful. The staff did an amazing job of making the most of the weather conditions. The gardens were lovely, the barn was quaint and cozy. Really, top notch service.

We were really disappointed in this place. We got there on Sunday night, and got room keys from the cashier at the restaurant. Didn't get any info about anything pertaining to the stay. Once we were in the room, no amenities, not even a clock with an alarm to wake you. I guess that is supposed to be part of... More

I'd read about the history of Story, Indiana in a few travel magazines and decided I had to make a stop to see the town that almost was taken off the map, due to being cut off from access to the larger community, which was flooded to make way for a dam. Find out the rest of the story when... More

Been here twice now & love the quaint atmosphere- it's like staying with relatives. Restaurant is worth driving to for dinner alone. Excellent food. Hands down best omelette i've had my entire life for breakfast. Bar was nice too. Have been as a couple and as a group trail riding and great times

My husband and I are staying in the area for a few days and my sister-in-law recommended going to Story Inn. So we took the "long and winding road" to come to Story! There is only one way in and only one way out! It is like a step back in time. The restaurant used to be the general store... More

Wasn't sure if I should have written this review as I was given a gift certificate for the Story Inn as a Christmas gift. However, I felt it necessary so people don't make the same mistake as me. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and based on their website, the Story Inn only had one room available which... More

While we did not stay at the Inn, we enjoyed a lovely dinner in the restaurant. The chef creates a seasonal menu focusing on locally sourced proteins and veggies (when available, which are almost all grown in the kitchen garden) so it is subject to change. We started with the Indiana cheese and charcuterie board. It was one of the... More

Such a lovely and quaint and elegant and relaxing place. Really old converted store with farm to table food. Duck was amazing as was Apple dessert and excellent wine. Went on a Sunday. Quiet night.

We have been to the Story Inn three years in a row. We absolutely love the place for it's old fashion charm. I've travelled a lot, and have never seen any place quite like Story. If you're into 4 star hotels with luxury accommodations, this place is not for you. If you're looking to leave the world behind and pretend... More
