The Prairie Guest house was wonderful and the owners exceptionally gracious and giving. As military vets, we have stayed at inns all over the world. We sincerely recommend Prairie Guest House to anyone traveling the Fishers-Indianapolis area.

Perfect rest stop

My wife and I stayed at Prairie Guest House as a non-hotel alternative stopover on a longer trip, so we were just in-and-out for one night, but even so we thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. The room was very spacious and comfortable, and the morning breakfast of quiche, fresh fruit, and homemade toast was delicious. Being avid tea drinkers, their wide selection of unusual teas was a fantastic complement to the breakfast. We would definitely stay there again!

wonderful getaway

My husband and I spent our 15th wedding anniversary here. The rooms were fresh, comfortable, attractive and very roomy--a great update to a historic property. The service and food were unbelievable. After learning that I love fancy produce-rich food and my husband's a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, the owner whipped up an amazing breakfast that we both loved. VERY fresh fruit and juice. Vegetables perfectly sauteed and folded into a fluffy omelette, alongside flavorful breakfast potatoes and tender-crisp bacon. We'll be back!

Perfect place to stop on the road

My husband, sister, brother-in-law, dog, cat, and I stayed at the Prairie Guest House during a cross-country move. The house is beautiful, and the rooms are spacious. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, and John was the perfect host--friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. We spontaneously walked over to Conner Prairie the next day before getting on the road, making for a more relaxed start to our day. We will definitely stay here again if our travel bring us through Fishers!

Warm, Welcoming & Peaceful Stay

I travel extensively throughout the Midwest and was looking for an interesting alternative to the usual hotel experience. The Prairie Guest House is a beautiful old farm house situated on a lovely and peaceful piece of property. The new owners/hosts John & Karen were very welcoming and made me feel right at home. My room was fresh and airy and my private bathroom was updated & clean. I awoke to a wonderful, healthy home cooked breakfast. I left feeling very rested and refreshed. I will definitely stay again my next time I'm in the Indianapolis area.

Oh My– Prairie Guest House

Oh my. We had a great time at the Prairie Guest House. Warm & cozy we slept in the 1870’s farmhouse and awoke to coffee, and a wonderful breakfast with great hospitality. We will definitely be back for more of the same at the Prairie Guest House.
