Unexpected Treasure

5 on August 17, 2015

I stayed here the weekend of August 15th and would highly recommend it to everyone. Great value, very comfortable bed (and I'm picky). good food, entertaining and warm hosts. Given a future opportunity to be in the area I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Kurt Cook Salt Lake City, UT


Concert weekend

5 on August 09, 2015

We spent a delightful weekend with Dean and Debbie in July. We were greeted warmly by Debbie and sat in the backyard chatting until Dean came home and the he joined us with the family dog. We felt like we were visiting family. Another couple soon joined us and the conversation just continued. The house is very clean and full of antiques. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well. We all gathered in the kitchen while our hosts prepared sausage gravey, biscuits, eggs, bacon and coffee. We all ate together in the dining room and sat talking for 2 hours! Great visit! And the views are fantastic. Thanks Debbie and Dean for sharing your home with us. Gayle and Bill


A delightful stay overlooking the Ohio river

A delightful stay with charming hosts and a wonderful breakfast. Would go again.


Wonderful 2-night Stay with our Dogs

5 on February 13, 2015

We recently took a trip to southern Indiana for our anniversary celebration and were fortunate to have found Tuggles Folly B&B. It was very close to our snowboarding destination at Perfect North Slopes, and dining/night life in Newport, KY and Cincinatti, OH. The Tuggles treated us like family the entire trip and made us and our two dogs feel very comfortable and at home. The meals were delicious, and it was great getting to know the Tuggles. I would highly recommend Tuggles Folly for anyone venturing to southern Indiana.

My husband and I found Tuggles Folley online. Gave it a try. Was very pleased The house is beautiful and comfortably decorated Debbie and Dean are great hosts We loved the atmosphere We felt as if we were in our own home, but with the hosts making us feel like we were special The food was great. Rooms bright and perky and clean. They served our breakfast and dined with us. We've stayed in a few B&B. But none had a live in host. This was great We visited with them like we were family We are definitely going back. Thanks Dean and Debbie for two days of much neede R&R Kenny and Pat


Tuggles "Folly" is Fantastic

4.8 on August 01, 2014

I am a "tourist" in my own town. I planned a birthday B&B Cruise during Paddlefest in Rising Sun for my boyfriend's birthday. He didn't want to just "go home" so I investigated the lodging options. Tuggles Folly offered a bed and meal only 7 miles from the Ohio river. Great price compared to the other options. We called ahead and let our hosts know we wouldn't be there about 10p.m. No problem. Our hosts greeted us cheerfully. We toured the home. Debbie settled us on the porch with refreshments to watch the starry night sky. We were asked about breakfast preferences. A good nights sleep in a lovely room and the smell of coffee & bacon awakened us. Ahhh. Great conversation in the morning with our hosts as we watched them prepare the meal. The large table groaned with a large selection of omelets, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit, etc as we sat and enjoyed the panoramic view. We then groaned with have eaten too much. It was all delicious! We are looking forward to returning to see the enormous train display that you can preview on YouTube at keywords: "Tuggles Folly train". Tuggles Folly is one of the best reasons to be a tourist, either traveling from miles away or in your own home town.


Great Bed and Breakfast for military VETS!!!

5 on July 13, 2014

Better late than never. I'm so sorry that I am writing this review so late, but due to military commitments I haven't been able to. I just wanted to say that Dean and Debbie were wonderful host, especially to active military and veterans. They treated us to a free night on Veteran's Day weekend last year. Great accommodations, great conversations, great hosts, and a really good home cooked breakfast. Lori and I had a good time and hope to come back and stay again in the future.

Innkeeper Response
Wonderful reviews such as yours are always welcome! Thank you for doing so. Please return with Lori at any time.


Quaint B&B

4.8 on June 14, 2014

You will not find a nicer B&B anywhere if you are looking for a nice relaxing stay at a scenic beautiful home. The breakfast was deliciously wonderful and the hosts are like family you will want to come back and visit! We loved our stay! Karen and Kevin Becker

Innkeeper Response
And we loved having you as our guests! Come back soon, please.


Beautiful View and Outstanding Breakfast

4.2 on June 09, 2014

We recently stayed at Tuggles Folly while up visiting family. The view from the property was absolutely amazing. But more amazing were the breakfasts that Debbie prepared each morning. Her skillet peaches and apples were fantastic. It was a lovely stay and we would certainly say again the next time we are up to see my Aunt and Uncle.


DELIGHTFUL COUNTRY CHARM

5 on May 23, 2014

Normally we are timeshare vacationers but we were visiting the NMRLA in Friendship. We found this B&B listed close by and decided to give it a try. What a delight! From the moment we arrived, Debbie and Dean welcomed us home and we felt we had know them for years. The week we spent there was the longest B&B stay we had ever tried and we were concerned that we might not like it after a few days. There was nothing to fear. The country charm, tranquility and good will let out time fly by and we were sorry when checkout finally came. Breakfasts were wonderful (our first introduction to Sorgum), views were spectacular and the weather (early May) was delightful. We have already booked another stay. Top ratings for all aspects.

Innkeeper Response
Ellie & Brian -- Thank you for the marvelous review. We also look forward to your return. You are the kind of people for which we opened Tuggles' Folly Bed & Breakfast, i.e. wonderful people coming to us and ringing our doorbell. Travel safely back to us.
