This was my second stay with Jill and Kristopher and I will stay with them the next time I am in town. I think this B&B does an outstanding job making there guests feel safe and comfortable. The details that Jill and Kristopher put into these homes are worth the trip just to see them. The room was clean and cozy, the food was delishous and they made me feel at home. Thank You Rebecca Ormiston from Maryland

My wife and I stayed at the Martha E. Parry B&B (not the Philip W. Smith B&B) for two nights on a weekend getaway without the kiddos. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves in the comforts of this historic and classy home. We were the only people staying in the house one night, and then one other guest joined us the second night. The room we stayed in was comfortable and clean, but it was quite small. For the price though, it was a good deal. Breakfasts were healthy, fresh and good. The host was very cordial and attentive to our needs. Dessert (cookies and pound cake) were provided to us each of the two evenings. Tea is available in a small hospitality room with a mini-fridge, sink and microwave. We made use of the fridge and microwave for storing and reheating leftovers from a meal in town one night. There is a lot of nice space for sitting and relaxing. Free Wi-Fi is available. Not all rooms have a DVD player in them, but they do all have Satellite TV. I definitely would stay here again if travelling through Richmond, IN.

This was my second stay at the Martha Perry House. The innkeepers are very friendly and welcoming and the house is beautiful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Richmond.

This was our first experience with a B&B and we were amazed. The rooms were decorated true to the period. The room size and bathroom size was great. The view from our window was beautiful in the snow. The hosts were very hospital and made us feel at home. The desert and gourmet breakfast was delicious. There knowledge of the area and the home's family history was impressive.They even cleared the snow off our car for us when it was time to leave. We are definitely going to make this our B&B retreat place.

I too own a small Inn and when I travel I like to stay in places similar to mine. This is truly a diamond in the rough. The owners knew exactly where to send us for antiques and good food. If you are in this area this is the only place you should stay!
