“What a lovely B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2008

This place The Martha Perry house) is beautiful.
Jill was waiting for us..we got in about 7:30 p.m. and she was warm and welcoming.
She showed us around the inn and gave us an excellent recommendation for a place to have dinner.
Plenty of towels, a gorgeously appointed room in a restored old home filled with antiques, and a lovely breakfast in the morning.
No comparison to staying in a room at some impersonal hotel chain.
I would recommend and, if visiting the area again, I would definitely re-book.

We stayed here to attend my husband's 20th class reunion. We stayed in the Parry House but had breakfast a block away in the Smith house. These are antique filled, lovingly restored homes, that are very comfortable places to stay. Easy communication with owner Jill, and breakfast was fantastic. Would definitely stay again.

  • Liked — The preserved beauty of the homes.
  • Disliked — That I couldn't stay longer!

I've stayed here twice, in the Martha Perry house, and loved it both times. The beds are wonderfully comfortable with luxurious linens. The house is quiet at night and is air conditioned in the summer. The proprietors are always warm and friendly, and the breakfasts are superb. I highly recommend it.

  • Liked — Friendly owners, beautiful house
  • Disliked — Small bathroom (but it's an old house, so don't expect it to be modern)

Just got back from a weekend at the Martha Perry B & B. The early 1900's home is a beautiful jem from this period with fabulous stained glass windows just about everywhere. Kris & Jill (owners) are gracious, welcoming & down to earth. Breakfast both days was yummy! Will go back again.

We booked our stay because of the reviews saying the homemade breakfast and how beautiful the B&B was for Richmond, Indiana. What a disappointment. The cinnamon rolls came from the microwave and it went downhill from there. The road was on the road side (the only thing they offered when only one room was booked for the night) and we did not sleep one wink via the truck traffic all night. Don't stay.

Travelled to Richmond with my daughter for her basketball camp at Earlham College. Since I am not familiar with the area, I wanted to stay somewhere I felt safe and comfortable...not the usual hotel/motel crowds and activity. Philip B. Smith B & B is fabulous! From the home itself, to the hostess Eileen, the quiet environment.....the breakfasts and the evening desserts were wonderful! I stayed 4 nights and was certainly spoiled when I left and returned to cooking for my family and having not quite as much quiet time. I certainly recommend staying at Philip B. Smith and will be visiting there again if I am ever in the area!

A breakfast to die for. The house is execptional. The hospitality is remarkable. One of the best. And the cost (less than 100.00).
