My husband and I, former Bloomington residents, spent 7 nights at The Wampler House during a recent trip back to Indiana to visit friends. It was the perfect place to stay! We were able to come and go as if it were our own (very beautiful) home. Attractive building and grounds, beautiful rooms, outstanding breakfasts, and outstanding hosting by Zack and Donna, who are warm and friendly. If we get to Bloomington again, we'll definitely come back to stay.


We will definitely be back!

WOW! This was a top notch place to stay! From the moment you arrive Zach and Donna are there to great you and will make your stay absolutely perfect! My daughter Brooke and I stayed during moms weekend at IU and we felt right at home! Zach is an amazing chef so breakfast was a meal to look forward too! I can't say enough about how gracious Donna and Zach are. Their bed and breakfast is quaint, so clean and comfortable! We will definitely be back often! Thank you for making our weekend extra special! Brooke and Tina


This B&B is a Gem

This B&B is truly outstanding. From the warm and welcoming new owners, Donna and Zach, to the quiet location just 10 minutes or so from downtown, we couldn't have been more pleased. The old house with its seamless addition has been lovingly restored and everything about the place is high quality and spotless. The owners reside in another home on the property. The full, hot breakfasts were a delight. Zach is a wonderful chef and willingly and very ably accommodated my husband's special dietary needs. After 3 days of pampering by Donna and Zach we felt like they were old friends. We will surely be staying with them again anytime we are in


Home away from home

This is absolutely the best B&B I've ever stayed in! It is spotless and has all the amenities one could ask for. Diana is not just the innkeeper...she's more like family. I've stayed with her twice and wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting in Bloomington with my family. Thank you, Diana, for making our stay so enjoyable!


Holiday Stay

The entire in is spotless. Cleanliness of the rooms, public areas and outdoors was amazing. This made the light, airy and nicely decorated inn even better. Adding to an already delightful environment were the beautiful Christmas lights and decorations throughout the inn. Nearly every amenity you would want was available, even down to flavored creamer for coffee. Innkeeper Diana Robinson is a delightful person whose business degree from Indiana University shows through in all that she does. A positive guest experience is obviously her number one goal. We WILL be back!


Unanticipated Treat

Our family gathered in Bloomington from around the country for a wedding. Our clan had the entire house. The house and hospitality allowed us to have a mini-family reunion in a most comfortable and enjoyable home-like setting. The Wampler House deserves more than the twenty-five stars we were limited to in the survey. Uncle David from Tennessee

Summer in Southern Indiana

Simply Wonderful!

Where do I start? We stayed here while visiting friends July 12-14, 2013. The first night we were the only ones there! The room was decorated in keeping with the Victorian theme of the house, with old family photos on the dresser. There were cookies in the room when we arrived, and the bathroom was huge! The shower and tub were separate, the jacuzzi tub being big enough for 2 people and with amenities such as bath salts and a candle. I soaked in the tub 2 of the 3 nights we were there. The only thing I could fault was I wish the shower stall was bigger. There was a sitting area upstairs, so if one person wanted to sleep and the other read, you could do so without disturbing one another. Breakfast was fabulous! Fresh fruit and a homemade bread or muffin for the first course, then a complete meal with eggs or french toast, bacon or sausage, hash browns. I was posting photos of my breakfast on Facebook and raving about it! There was also a snack bar with cold drinks, fruit, and packaged snacks available any time, as well a dessert in the evenings. The proprietor and staff were so gracious! I would recommend Wampler House to anyone staying in the Bloomington area.
