A Great Break!

4.2 on September 08, 2017

My wife and I visited Acorn Ridge to take a break from getting ready for a baby and our busy work lives. It was the perfect break! The room had enough privacy for a relaxing early afternoon, then we drove to Nashville to do some window-browsing and dinner. We came back to Acorn for a wonderful night's sleep in a comfortable bed. Breakfast was an amazing surprise. We did not expect two courses (fruit, then eggs and veggies). Thank you for a great experience. We will be back!

Great place

We never stayed in a bed and breakfast before. My husband was really Leary about it. After staying here it went above and beyond our expectations. Loved Dave and Rita. Their hospitality was awesome. Such great people and makes you feel right at home. We spent two days there and did not want to leave. Delicious breakfast especially the coffee cake.

Great place to get away

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary trip Rita and Dave really make you feel at home. Rita cooks great food. Very welcoming place and beautiful. We did not want to leave. It was our first bed and breakfast experience. My husband was leary about it but they changed his mind and I don't think he will be looking into anymore hotels if it is just us. Thanks Rita and Dave for an awesome trip.

Visiting our son at IU Bloomington

This was our second time. And the stay was great! The rooms are comfortable and breakfast is always great. We choice to meet our son for breakfast on the second and last morning. So Rita made sure she left us some easy to eat snacks and to go cups for tea and coffee for our trio back home. Rita has great attention to detail. This time we were able to even bring our little dogs. They were well behaved and loved being able to be with us.

Two comfortable days

We had never stayed at a B&B, but this was a very good experience, so we will never hesitate to travel that way again. If we are anywhere near Morgantown, IN and/or Nashville, IN we will certainly stay at Acorn Ridge. Breakfast were our best meals on this trip,

Great Stay

Wonderful B&B- really enjoyed it!

Rita was very accommodating and made us delicious breakfasts! She was friendly and helpful. Her lawn chairs and umbrellas were real lifesavers for an outdoor festival we attended! The B&B was very clean and nicely furnished. We highly recommend it!

About the innkeepers

We have this huge house that we enjoy, and we enjoy having guests. It just seemed like the perfect combination. Dave is an engineer so he fixes things, enjoys hunting and archery. Rita loves projects, picture framing, and art. We both enjoy the outdoors and love animals. We just don't have them in the house due to allergy issues.

Signature Dish

Portobello Eggs with sides
An egg is nested in a Portobello mushroom cap and baked with herbs and sprinkled with Asiago cheese. The meal is rounded out with fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream on the side. Bacon or cheese slices and broiled tomatoes accompany the egg with a side of Swedish pancakes. If that doesn't fill you up, we will gladly cook and additional egg to your liking and orange juice is available. A selection of local syrups are fun to choose from! That will be a surprise! We have a selection of teas, K cup coffee anytime you like, and a pot of coffee at breakfast.
