I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay at Old Towne Carmel B&B. The residence was immaculate, with a lovely front porch with rocking chairs, a cozy living room where guests can relax, within walking distance of a 'main street' shopping/dining. Guest rooms are charming, the breakfasts were exquisite, and hosts really provided a personal touch, but were never TOO intrusive. Really really happy with my stay and I would return again. Highly recommend!
So enjoyed our stay and conversing with the full house of guests this weekend! Our hosts were very accommodating and gave helpful suggestions for things to do in beautiful Franklin, Indiana on a rainy weekend! The food was fabulous and beautifully plated. Will definitely return for a repeat and will recommend to friends and family!
My sister and I stayed here for Gen Con and it was miles better than staying at one of the hotels attached to the convention center. Breakfast was awesome, the bed was super comfortable, and the tub was a great place to relax after a long day of walking around. Gary is friendly and will make you feel at home. Will def. be back next year!
We are local to The Flying Frog Bed and Breakfast and I recently had a Class Reunion not far from the establishment. I decided to make a weekend of it and stay at the B&B. We are SO "HOPPY" we did! Impeccable decor, genuine and friendly hosts and the FOOD … Superb! My husband is an Executive Chef and he is still raving about the dessert and 3 course breakfast. We will NEVER stay at a hotel again. Highly recommend The Flying Frog Bed and Breakfast - we will certainly be back again.
No onsite restaurant but very nice small bar area with snacks. Great continental breakfast on the weekends. Just a very well done secluded getaway hotel yet in the midst of "happening" Broad Ripple. Getting popular, so booking early is advised.
My husband and I wanted a romantic getaway close to home. We spent the weekend here and really enjoyed it. The room felt luxurious, the staff was very welcoming, and we stayed up past our bedtime talking on the balcony. Highly recommend!
Checked in last night to find out our reservation was unable to be honored for our second day. The owner was unable to explain why it had happened but he was super apologetic and made sure he found us a room nearby. The accommodations he located were actually considerably higher in cost but he covered everything! I feel he went above and beyond. I highly recommend this B & B. Not only was the service excellent but the accommodations were also great! Thanks for a great night.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this B&B. The room was comfortable and Kelly and Joe are very hospitable. The breakfast was amazing. We liked being able to walk to Old Town Carmel and to spend some time on the Monon trail.
We stayed at the Irwin house for two nights in June. We have stayed in quite a few B&Bs over the years but this place has been the best. It took our breath away when we first walked in to see the beautiful staircase and wood work in the main room. The innkeepers Sarah and Brittany showed us around the mansion. It was amazing. The service while we stayed was excellent. If we needed anything we just called Sarah o rBrittany and they would help us. We were served wine at 5pm in the evenings as part of guest services. We then walked down to a great Italian restaurant for dinner and then over to a bar for drinks before returning to sleep in a wonderful room. We chose to stay in the Elsie Sweeney Room.It had mahogany bedroom set with king bed. The bathroom had a vintage bath/shower combination. The breakfast we had on the first morning was fabulous but nothing compared to the Bananas Foster we had the second morning. The location was just a couple of blocks from downtown Columbus. Easy to walk to restaurants and bars in the evening and historic sites during the day. We loved the place so much we are giving our daughter and her husband a night there for their upcoming anniversary. And I am taking my wife back to stay for her birthday.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The spacious room had lovely furnishings and a modern bathroom. The continental breakfast was perfect for our needs. There's a bar where guests can order beverages. We spent a short time sitting on the beautifully shaded front lawn with a glass of wine. Can't beat the location, right on the Monon Bike Trail and walk too many restaurants and shops in Broad Ripple. The hotel had a very charming european feel to it which I especially loved. The owner and staff were very attentive and friendly. We will definitely stay there again the next time we find ourselves in Indianapolis.
The building and the gardens are absolutely beautiful! Friendly service and excellent breakfast. The only negative was the dirty bathroom. The toilet was dirty and a good layer of dust was on the base of the sink. Looked like the room hadn't been used in a while, the floors were dusty too. Will definitely stay again and check the room before settling in.
We loved our stay here! The house literally took my breath away! Each room is so gorgeous and put together so tastefully...The house is its own lil paradise...we stayed in the paris room for 2 nights and felt very welcomed..Sharon and Butch were extremely friendly and took care of us like family..I also have to mention the food! No donuts here! We recieved gourmet cooking for breakfast, and it was honestly the best food we have ever ate! Honest! Sharon even made us sweets at night...she had red velvet cake waiting for us the very first night we arrived! Amazing place...we stay at alot of b&bs and this one is our favorite now:)
My wife and I had a wonderful kid-free weekend at Old Towne Carmel BnB. Our room and the house were impeccably clean and comfortable. Kelly was a gracious host and pleasure to chat with. She and her husband own a bakery and catering service, so the breakfasts and late night treats were amazing. Enjoying the French-pressed coffee after breakfast on the shaded front porch rockers was very relaxing. We loved the location; only 1 block away from the Monon trail and 5 blocks away from the Carmel arts district with plenty of shops and restaurants.....Mud Bugs, The Pint Room, Bub's, and Agave were excellent. We will definitely be back!
We’d been curious about Irwin Gardens since it opened as a B&B in 2010. The 1910 Edwardian mansion with its unique sunken formal garden is located adjacent to the Henry Moore arch sculpture and the First Christian Church which began Columbus’ reputation for architecture in 1942. The mansion and garden give you a bit of a Downton Abbey experience. Rooms are named after members of the Irwin family, responsible for Columbus’ architectural heritage. The interior is a bit plain and sparse with none of the Victorian fussiness. And since it’s remained in the family until becoming a B&B, it’s remarkably well preserved, with original period furniture and fixtures. A wedding rehearsal dinner was held the evening we were there, but it didn’t interfere with our enjoyment. Breakfast was served in a small dining room, mainly tables for two which didn’t allow much conversation with other guests. The weekend rates make this the most expensive B&B we’ve stayed at, but it is a unique experience, walking distance to all that downtown Columbus has to offer.
I've stayed twice in room #5 and have had the est sleep ever! The bed is heavenly!! First time we stayed I mentioned that there was nothing to put your toiletries on besides the floor or toilet seat, which was a minus. Next time we stayed there was a hook on the back of the door AND a small attractive round table in the bathroom to place your toiletries on. Great improvement!
This B&B is a true delight! From the crisp decor, to the delicious breakfast and afternoon treats. A recent change of owners has been seemless - from previous reviews to our experience - this is a lovely place to recharge during a visit to Indy! Rooms are comfortable, clean - attached bath/shower is not cramped at all - neighborhood is quiet and a nice walk to shopping/dining in the Art & Design District. Joe & Kelly are friendly and talented chef/bakers and mascot, Teddy is extremely delightful! We would highly recommend this B&B to you!
