The Schenck Mansion is a 35 room home built by riverboat captian Benjamin Franklin Schenck in 1874. Five of our guest rooms have private baths with the original copper lined tubs. Eugenia's room has a bonus bedroom that can be added for a small fee. We offer a full country breakfast with coffee, juice, and fresh fruit. All included in your room rate. Double occupancy. Decorated with elegant period antiques and reproductions. A true step back in time when you stay at this mansion on the hill overlooking the quaint little river town of Vevay, Indiana.

You really need to see the mansion in person....it is beyond GRAND. Lisa and Jerry, along with their staff, will make your stay a memorable one also. The home, the grounds, the porches....I could go on and on. Staying once, we were called back to return, and I feel sure it won't be our last visit. Thank you! A sisters' trip the first time, then we just had to share it with our husbands.

Pictures on the website at http://www.schenckmansion.com/ don’t do justice to the beautiful Schenck Bed and Breakfast at Vevay, Indiana. The mansion was built by Benjamin F. Schenck in the 1870s on the banks of the Ohio River about an hour's drive midway between Louisville and Cincinnati. After the building fell into disrepair and was finally abandoned, it was purchased by Lisa and Jerry in 1998 and lovingly restored. They have gone above and beyond what one might expect in order to preserve the beauty of the mansion and daily make every effort to provide for the comfort and pleasure of their guests. The five guest rooms/suites available at the mansion are quite spacious with plush carpeting, elegant furnishings and working fireplaces. The private baths are one of the few places in existence where guests can relax or shower in an original copper tub. Amenities include a wonderful breakfast prepared by Lisa and Jerry and home baked cookies for an evening snack. With a little encouragement, Lisa will share the long and interesting history of the home. And guests are encouraged to explore all 35 rooms of the mansion at their leisure. A night or two at the mansion is just the ticket for a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life or, perhaps, a bit of romance. The cost is surprisingly inexpensive, and once you’ve visited the first time, chances are you’ll come back again and again. It's hard to imagine a nicer, cleaner or more elegant B&B!

We stayed 2 nights, Saturday and Sunday, January 16 & 17, 2010. Our room was on the first floor and was the largest room we have ever stayed in at at B & B. Our room and the entire mansion were exceptionally immaculate! Everything from the furniture, linens, and food was top notch. Although the mansion is large, it was very comfortable and very welcoming. We definitely will stay again!!! Thanks Lisa and Jerry for a wonderful stay at your establishment.

May husband and I stay here every year for our Halloween anniversary. Lisa is a gem, warm and accomodating and very interesting. She has lovingly restored the mansion and it is absolutely stunning. We love this bed & breakfast and can't imagine staying any other place.
