My review!

4.6 on August 20, 2014

This was my second stay with you...loved every minute! Great, warm and welcoming rooms and staff!

Happy reunion

4.6 on July 18, 2014

We were very happy with our stay. By far the BEST breakfast we've experienced to date at a B&B. A much more comfortable stay for the price, verses a hotel room. We arrived later in the evening after a delayed flight and storm filled drive from Chicago. It really felt like we had gotten "home" and were ready for the rest.

Personable yet Private

This inn is small enough to be cozy and personable, yet large enough to allow the customer to not get that sense of "staying in one's parents' house." Very clean, romantic and lots of snacks and great food. Will return!

Another Great Stay!

I stay at the Inn a few times per year on a business trip. The room is always comforting. In the winter, I love rolling in late and turning on the fireplace while I enjoy a "comfort" snack from the Inn's kitchen. Breakfast is always good, and the staff are always friendly and accomodating. The experience is far better than one could even imagine at a regular hotel.

Lowly elegance

5 on March 31, 2012

My experience with bed and breakfasts are that they are usually very warm and cozy. At first blush I was somewhat intimidated when I arrived in at The Inn at Aberdeen. The spacious rooms complete with Jacuzzi and elegant foyer looked more like something out of Gone with the Wind than a Country Inn. Breakfast was a movable feast highlighted by Hoosier hospitality.

Great escape

Needed to get away. Quiet, comfortable, snacks and evening dessert were a treat. Super breakfasts. Jacuzzi for 2 and then the fireplace certainly set the mood for a great evening. Thanks

will stay elsewhere

2.0 on September 08, 2011

was our 24th anniversary and our first experience with a bed and breakfast, we felt the value for the cost of the room was lacking. felt the inn and rooms not only lacked day to day housekeeping (very dusty and cobwebs etc..), but also needed a deep cleaning and maintenance(light bulbs and grounds work etc...). carpets needed replaced or cleaned as mentioned in review from 2008! was surprised by this and more when there are so many Inns and Hotels vying for my money.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for sharing your concerns. The AC for your original room was not working correctly on arrival and you were moved to an alternate. Service was called and corrected the problem. You were not charged for that night. In addition to our coupons, you were also given a discount for the additional 2 nights of your 3-night stay for the initial inconvenience. You never mentioned any other concerns with the room during your stay which could have been addressed at the time. It was refreshed each day.I have reviewed the room - and while the light colored carpet shows some wear - the room remains clean and well service & is actually continues to be a requested favorite of many of our guests. We are sorry for your concerns.

A hidden Gem!

What a surprising, wonderful stay! Loved the Aberdeen Room, the Jecuzzi, the wonderful breakfast and location.....

Innkeeper Response
A long way from California and a restaurant owner - we are very appreciative of your kind words about the Inn. We are glad you enjoyed the original master bedroom in all its 160 year glory. Happy holidays.

anniversary at aberdeen

4.8 on July 23, 2010

We have been visitors to the Inn at Aberdeen for over 10 years & never tire of returning - This most recent trip was for our anniversary & we are now planning for quarterly return visits at a minimum - The Inn is beautiful, classy, & a great experience from start to finish p.s. I highly suggest you request Bill's waffles for breakfast when you make your reservation!

Excellent Honeymoon Stay!!

5 on July 20, 2010

My wife and I checked into the Aberdeen in on July 3, 2010, the night of our wedding and we stayed for 7 nights. It was fantastic!! The service was great. The room was very cozy and romantic; also very clean. The room had its own bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. The room also has a fireplace, which we didn't use being July, but if you were there in the winter or some cold autumn nights, that would be perfect as well. The breakfasts were all delicious. It ranged from waffles and french toast to broccoli and cheese quiche and a wonderful egg casserole with bacon on top. The soft drinks, coffee, cheesecake and snacks that were available 24/7 was a great touch as well. Good for those late night indulgences. It was a great honeymoon for us and we got to spend a lot of quality time together in a romantic, quiet and cozy place! All of the staff was fantastic, were always nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place from anything from a honeymoon to a quick weekend to rekindle the romance in a relationship.
