My husband and I had a nice get away weekend.

My husband and I stayed at this neat Inn and enjoyed sipping wine on the quaint georgeous porch that was just beautiful with all the hanging flower baskets and giant ferns. The room we had was very comfortable and decorated with beautiful art work. We also enjoyed the use of a fully equiped kitchen since we prefer preparing our on meals together. Very nice place would highly recommend.

charming and friendly

My husband and I stayed here while "wandering Indiana". We enjoyed our 2 nights here. We stayed in the house with 4 units. Our beds were comfortable and the house charming. The house was not full and we were the only ones using the TV in the living room. We breakfasted with Vesta and enjoyed getting to know her. The welcoming porches and gardens we would have enjoyed had the weather cooperated. We will recommend this place to our friends. R & B

Easter Getaway

We were expecting a nice quiet setting. We figure once you rent a cottage that the owner would be around or watching to see if you had more guests. The massage package is not worth the money it was more like a body rub. We figure we would get a bottle of wine from french lick winery not a generic version of wine. It is a nice getaway but the view was okay. For two people it cost $500 or so for 2 nights.

Thanks for a Great Time

This was an oasis in the midst of a hectic conference week. We so enjoyed sipping tea on the veranda and visiting with the Innkeeper. The view was beautiful. The inn was meticulous and we enjoyed the ecclectic decor and the innkeeper's original oil paintings. The continental breakfast was just what we needed for our early morning meetings. Will recommend to our friends.
