My parents first time visiting me in Indiana, so I set them up here for a couple nights. A week later they are still talking about the food and the service. The place is perfectly situated in downtown Carmel so they could walk to shops or look at adorable neighborhoods. The couple who owns the Inn were very hospitable and cooked delicious food. Will definitely be booking with them again.

A Perfect Getaway

The Old Towne Carmel Bed and Breakfast is a welcoming. The three rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The owners are talented catering chefs, so be prepared for the best breakfast you've ever had! It is the perfect combination of cozy, comfortable and elegant!

Very pleased.

Wonderful experience!

I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay at Old Towne Carmel B&B. The residence was immaculate, with a lovely front porch with rocking chairs, a cozy living room where guests can relax, within walking distance of a 'main street' shopping/dining. Guest rooms are charming, the breakfasts were exquisite, and hosts really provided a personal touch, but were never TOO intrusive. Really really happy with my stay and I would return again. Highly recommend!

Very Comfortable

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this B&B. The room was comfortable and Kelly and Joe are very hospitable. The breakfast was amazing. We liked being able to walk to Old Town Carmel and to spend some time on the Monon trail.

Amazing weekend getaway

5 on June 15, 2016

My wife and I had a wonderful kid-free weekend at Old Towne Carmel BnB. Our room and the house were impeccably clean and comfortable. Kelly was a gracious host and pleasure to chat with. She and her husband own a bakery and catering service, so the breakfasts and late night treats were amazing. Enjoying the French-pressed coffee after breakfast on the shaded front porch rockers was very relaxing. We loved the location; only 1 block away from the Monon trail and 5 blocks away from the Carmel arts district with plenty of shops and restaurants.....Mud Bugs, The Pint Room, Bub's, and Agave were excellent. We will definitely be back!
