“Beautiful grounds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

I expected more from an I Prefer hotel. The setting is beautiful and relaxing. The room was clean and well furnished. However, there was only a shower stall, the air conditioning was so loud I couldn't hear the television, and there was no wifi reception in my room. Some rooms have balconies and patios with views of a lake; mine was on the first floor with views of a parking lot and the reception building. The atmosphere and service at the restaurant, The Red Geranium, we're pleasing, but the food was just satisfactory.

Stayed October 2013, traveled solo

With our very busy schedules between work and children, the hubby and I needed a little get away. Purchased a stay at the New Harmony Inn in Indiana. This was the best little get away we needed. 2 hours from our home, along the Wabash River, small town with great little specialty stores. The weekend we booked has the Kuntsfest, German Art Festival, with many crafters, vendors, German music, great food and friendly people. At night the town was so quiet, peaceful, relaxing. The town is Golf Cart approved so many of the towns folk drive a golf cart making it really quiet.

A golf cart came with our package so we toured the town for the afternoon. The Inn does have bicycles built for 1 or 2 to use free of charge.

Around the Inn are trails to walk or take the cart for a ride, sit along the Wabash river and relax. They have tennis courts, volley ball net, large out door chess and checkers set. Very spiritual area, the whole town is. Friendly staff full of information about the historic town.

The room overlooked the lake, nice balcony, nice hardwood floors, thick wood doors, wonderful shower/bathroom, and had a fireplace for those chilly nights. The Pool house has heated pool, hot tub, and full bath with shower is a short walk away from the main buildings. Breakfast isn't much, there's a little home-town café that served full breakfast and lunch, very low prices, but good eats.

Would recommend this for a couple retreat or simple get away. Ready to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with a view of the lake and balcony. If you need an elevator, explain that at chec...

Stayed at New Harmony Inn during Kunstfest (German Art Festival). The Inn is nice but it is dated and it sits in a beautiful spot. Nice pond, waterfall, pool, tennis, and beautiful grounds.

One serious complaint - very noisy at night due to other guests partying in-room and no response from management when I called to ask for relief; about 3 a.m. things did quiet down. Not just talking and laughing - guitar, singing, etc. 3 calls, all treated as if I was a nuisance. Upon checkout, I was asked if my stay was "peaceful" and of course it wasn't and the clerk responded by saying "I hope that won't keep you from staying with us again."

Room Tip: If you stay, ask for a room that faces the pond.

My 11 year old son and I spent a night here over Labor Day weekend while doing some history touring in southern Indiana. Check in was busy but friendly and there was plenty of parking near our building. The room was nice but nothing special. Breakfast in the morning was an expanded continental but there was plenty and it was kept filled up.

We did not use the amenities such as the pool or tennis courts. We did take the walking tour of New Harmony which was very interesting and I recommend it.

The hotel itself is simple and even on the plain side, but that's the point. This hotel reflects it's historic community beautifully. The room was very clean, the bed super comfy and our view was stunning. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are unique amenities like free bikes, a chapel, hiking/biking trails and an on site waterfall. The best way to see & experience the entire hotel grounds is to rent a golf cart (they are $5 cheaper per hour at the vintage ice cream shop just a couple blocks away). We went down the trails behind the hotel that led to the banks of the Wabash and saw a bald eagle in its natural habitat! Everything about this place was perfect for a quiet weekend away.

The staff at the New Harmony Inn could not have treated us more politely or attended our needs more courteously. We spent out 54th anniversary at the Inn in August 2013 and it was a delight. Eli who was the first desk clerk we met and the one we talked with daily was outstanding. He addressed our every need plus offered many suggestions and answered many questions. We must add that all the other desk clerks were equally courteous and helpful but we just had a great relationship with Eli and hope he continues to climb to higher positions within the hotel chain.
Likewise, we had a great experience with the staff at the Historic New Harmony, which is the visitor center. We especially want to compliment Melissa and Kim for making our tour and visit at the center very special. Kim went out of her way to provide us with all the information former school teachers could desire and spent much time giving us the perfect tour. (maybe even a little extra since it was a weekday tour)
Everywhere we visited, stores, shops, eating establishments, and ice cream shops plus local
museums we felt welcomed and make to feel special.
Red Gernaium Restaurant was a well-staff four star establishment that served any number of meals that would accommdate any travelers pocket book. Remember however, this is a four star restaurant so if you dine in the evening anywhere other than the bar, your price for your meal will be more expensive than the noon brunch or any meal chosen from the bar menu.
If you have not visited New Harmony do it now. The legacy established by the founders of this community is one of a kind in our nation. The rich culture and religious heritage of this community is outstanding. Be sure to take advantage of this quiet, peaceful dreamland before the economy finally causes its doors to close. In this age of cost-cutting no historic landmark funded by the State or privately stands a great chance of not being put on the chopping block.

We found the New Harmony Inn to be a pleasant, clean, and restful place to spend the evening. The desk was prompt and helpful, the room large and nicely appointed, and the view of the private garden a real delight. The overall ambience of the Inn fits well with the relaxed contemplative nature of New Harmony and it is a true delight to spend time here in the fall with the radiant trees, the lack of hustle and the peace and quiet.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are a real delight
