My friend and I stayed one night at the Phillip W. Smith house while on a road trip. We had originally booked two rooms in June but had to cancel at the last minute and reschedule for October. Jill was very attentive and accommodating and we were able to use our deposit for the June reservations in October. We arrived...

My sister, mother, and I stayed at this B&B (my first time!!) while on the Chocolate Trail in Richmond. The B&B was extremely clean and friendly. The poor owners had to make an ER trip right before check-in, but left envelopes with keys and directions for those of us checking in. The beds were comfortable and there was a guest...

We arrived late at night after a 7 hour drive. We left within 10 minutes of being in room #3 due to the moldy smell. The mattress was formless and mushy. The scratchy threadbare polyester sheets repulsive. I felt the need to place a T-shirt over my pillow case. I sat in the bed for about 5 minutes and could...

The hosts were pleasant. The bedding was nice. The cleanliness was okay, although the house smelled old and musty. The food was horrible. We were promised a homemade dessert, which was slice and bake cookies in a plastic tupperware. Breakfast was promised to be a homemade quiche. I doubt it was homemade; certainly the crust was not. Either way, it...

Do not make a reservation here. I reserved a room for my parents in honor of my mothers 80th birthday. A week after the reservation was accepted online ( and I informed my parents of the gift) the Bed and Breakfast notified me by email that the reservation would need to be for 2 nights and that the reservation I...

Due to the reservation being booked online, an automatically generated response is sent. It states, "Reservations are confirmed via email and/or phone call. The reservation is in a request status until this notice is received." Upon receiving this particular request, we notified the potential guest of the two night minimum since it is a special event weekend at the local...

We stayed one night at the Martha E. Perry House while we were in town doing the Chocolate Trail and exploring Richmond. The house is beautiful, very old and charming. We really enjoyed being pampered with an evening snack and being waited on for breakfast. We also really enjoyed talking with Kris at breakfast. We had some great conversations about...

If you are in the Richmond area don't miss the Phillip W. Smith and Martha E Parry B&Bs. Call Jill to book your room so you will not be disappointed. The two homes have a variety of rooms with period charm and modern comforts. If you are a 42" flat screen HDTV buff take a pass because the TVs are...

My husband and I decided to run away for the weekend and found ourselves in Richmond, IN so we decided to stay at the Philip W. Smith B&B. It was wonderful. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. The bedroom was comfortable and breakfast was wonderful!
