Worth the winding scenic drive that seems endless but at the end is the most quaint and historic inn with a 4 start restaurant. Whatever you do , don't miss this place and plan to stay if you fancy haunted rooms ha!

I recently visited the historic Story Inn after spending the afternoon in Nashville, Indiana. It's out in the middle of nowhere, walled in by corn fields, giving visitors the eerie feeling that they're being transported back to the 1850's when the General Store was first established. It is supposedly haunted, but I didn't experience anything out of the ordinary. Due... More

This business was established in 1851. Exterior features two old Standard Oil gas pumps. Interior has a collection of numerous antiques. The food and service were fabulous. We didn't stay there but it is haunted by the "blue lady." I left my credit card there and they called as we were almost back to Nashville. Only negative is the location... More

The Story Inn is a one-of-a-kind establishment that is wonderful for anytime dining, but particularly perfect for a romantic dinner and an overnight stay in one of the unique and cozy accommodations. The management is to be complimented for being efficient and managing an attentive staff. The chef's culinary talent is amazing and we enjoyed every meal that was attractively... More

A charming little gem off the beaten path with so much to offer. We enjoyed a late breakfast with mimosas. The food was awesome and the service delightful. I would highly recommend.

We were two of 8 people in this very out of the way restaurant for lunch today ( a Thursday in mid- September.) We were seated by a rather indifferent hostess, given water by a lovely woman and told our waitress would be with us shortly. Shortly was a long time. We ordered the soup of the day which was...

We made the trip to scout out the Inn for a possible weekend stay next year. I can only imagine the drive when the trees are turning in the fall. Stopped in on a weekday with no reservation and was seated very quickly and served promptly. We were a little surprised it was a upscale meal, but it was the... More

Having passed through Story, Indiana on previous excursions through Brown County, we always wanted to stop and check out the Story Inn. On this short getaway, we decided to try out the Story Inn Restaurant for dinner. We made a reservation and upon arrival, we were seated a few minutes ahead of schedule. The step-back-in-time atmosphere was delightful, but unfortunately,... More

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!
