Now under new ownership and advertised on air bnb, this historic beauty of a home is filled with old world charm and world travelers. Melissa is a very relaxed and gracious host and her children are courteous and helpful. The kitchen is open for use and the living area boasts a beautiful grand piano and comfortable seating. Stocked with organic...

My husband and I met with Valla Ann to do our wedding. When wemet her she smelledline whiskey. She also slurred her speech. She said it would be no problem to do our wedding. I did not hear from her I called numerous times and emailed. I eventually found someone else to do our wedding. She emailed me after the...

I booked the Admiral Bicknell Suite here for the night of my wedding. The building is very pretty inside and out; however we had a very disappointing experience. First, the positives: the room was nice. Very large, a nice large tub, and a sitting room we didn't even use. Negatives: I'm not even sure where to start. I had scheduled...

My husband surprised me for our anniversary with reservations to this historical bed and breakfast. One of the most romantic things he has ever done. We had the Cupola suite on the 3rd floor all to ourselves. Which includes a private little staircase up to the roof where there is a great little crow's nest kind of room overlooking the...

My husband and I spent three nights at the Admiral Bicknell Inn in the Cupola Suite. The house itself is beautiful; be sure to admire the special convex window panes from the other side of the street. Valla Ann, the innkeeper, is a gem. Her suggestions for sightseeing and restaurants were perfect for us, and her breakfasts are incredible, with...

We bought a voucher on Living Social and enjoyed a wonderful night at this fabulous B & B, a 163 year old mansion. Our hostess, Valla Ann, was very kind, caring and attentive and her home cooked breakfast--thick slices of French toast topped with fresh fruit, nuts and whipped cream--was a decadent delight. The room was lovely, the bed was...

Had a great weekend trip here from Cincinnati a while back and I would love to plan another weekend here. The house is cool and we stayed in the The Admiral Bicknell Suite, which was awesomely huge. Claw footed tub, no shower, but it matched the atmosphere. Our favorite part was hanging out at the pool on the hot weekend...

The Inn is very beautiful and perfect for walking to town and the river, both 5 minute walk. The Inn feels very cozy and the most amazing part of this beautiful place is the Inn keeper, she is the nicest most caring and fun B&B owner I have ever met! She went out of her way to accommodate us and...

We just had a wonderful couple of days in the Inn ! Stayed in the Admiral Bicknell suite. Lovely experience. Nice place to relax. As with most of the other reviews we concur that innkeeper was nice and helpful with information. Our suite was excellent. Very spacious nicely furnished and very comfortable. It faces the street but was quiet and...

Although the beds and bedding are excellent and the is innkeeper interesting and unique, the pictures and descriptions on the website are not indicative of our experience. The food is unremarkable and there are cleanliness issues outside the structure. We much enjoyed the Culbertson Mansion and the small town of New Albany; but it is doubtful that we would return...

“Even though I did not see the other rooms on the lower floors, and I am sure they are just as lovely, however, do try to get the third floor with access to the overlook. Sunset over the river was breathtaking.”
  • View from the cupola above the 3rd floor. Even better at night.
