Fantastic place to stay for business trip

5 on August 21, 2014

Top rating for this B&B. I needed a place to stay for 1 night for business in Morocco, IN and this was a great decision. The innkeepers, Sally and Fred were very friendly and informative about the area. Breakfast was excellent. I highly recommend this business or pleasure.


Excellent B & B. Amazing breakfast, rooms and owners. Recommend the White House

Excellent B&B! Breakfast amazing. Wonderful, Caring owners, Top Notch all around


Most Perfect Experience

5 on August 02, 2014

This is a lovely B&B in the small community of Rensselaer, IN. The hosts have taken care of your every need before you even realize it. The decor of all the rooms (we've stayed in 2) have a Victorian elegance and are just beautiful and spacious, with all the modern updates required in the 21st century. The breakfasts are simply divine as is the company: the other guests and our hosts Fred and Sally. I can't think of a single improvement. Book a room and you'll see what I mean.


Peaceful retreat

A wonderful overnight stay for a couple. Rooms are beautifully furnished with turn-of-century décor that evokes a genteel lifestyle, yet the B&B does not feel like a museum. Personal photos and memorabilia of current owners add a homelike atmosphere. A well-maintained vintage baby grand provided much enjoyment for my piano-playing spouse and me. Breakfast was delicious and attractively presented.


Welcoming hosts, quiet room, great food

5 on May 24, 2014

Very friendly and very helpful host and hostess. Beautiful home. Large, very comfortable bedroom and bath. Quiet neighborhood. Great breakfast at flexible time--we had to leave early for Cubs game, so had breakfast at 7:30, while honeymooners had breakfast at 9. Accommodated dietary needs of a Type 1 diabetic with a smile. This is a great place to stay.


Wonderful, comfortable stay.

Best bed and breakfast to stay in after your wedding!!!

5 on October 30, 2013

We enjoyed staying here after our wedding! The room was clean and breakfast was amazing!


Charming B and B - absolutely wonderful host/hostess

5 on October 26, 2013

Fred and Sally were the friendliest, most helpful hosts we have ever dealt with. The facilities were wonderful, the breakfast was wonderful, and the hosts even helped with our itinerary. Bonus was their knowledge of the history of their beautiful house. We'll be going back next year.


The best stay ever

It was like visiting old friends. Sally and fred really made us feel welcomed.. They even provided maps on how to get to destinations.


Best B&B I have Stayed At Yet

5 on October 18, 2013

I have stayed at this B&B a few times now, and it just gets better every time. The Innkeepers are two of the greatest people you will ever meet. If you need anything, just give them a call and they are more than happy to try to help you. My husband stay in 'The Cottage' room and loved it. It's spacey and is perfect for a romantic weekend retreat. I have also stayed in 'The Bird's Nest' when I have traveled solo. It's very cozy and I would recommend the room if you are traveling solo. And the breakfast...Amazing. Sally's Mountaintop Bacon is great. Ask for the Fruitini when you stay there, and you won't be disappointed. I look forward to the next time my husband and I need a weekend to ourselves. :)
