We had our son's rehearsal dinner here four years ago and absolutely loved it! The building is very historic (built in 1889) and is stunning. We have gone back multiple times for their Sunday Brunch which is delicious and offers just about anything you could...More

We met friends for our monthly get together last night (6/20/2015). The website for Tippecanoe Place looks far better than the current reality. The facility is not being maintained. We saw broken furniture, dirty carpeting and woodwork that is marketed as part of the historic...More

Great food but even better, you are allowed and even encouraged to roam freely around this beautiful mansion. Really enjoyed the historic stories of the Studebakers.

Had large family gathering there. Food was delicious and service was exceptional! Only negative was the high prices. Would definitely recommend it, just make sure to bring plenty of cash.

Being there near Thanksgiving, this historic converted mansion was dressed to the nines for the Christmas holidays. My server suggested I explore the upper floor after my [fabulous] dinner. As suggested, I took the [oldest elevator in Indiana] to the top, explored all the dining...More

We have a nice but casual dress code. Many of our customers are visitors from another state and come in casual wear. The Mansion hosts many weddings and events and the holidays are here so guests may be a little more formal... More
