Beautifully romantic place to stay

5 on March 30, 2018

Staying at Solomon Mier Manor was a surprise for my husband, who loves Victorian houses. It is a gorgeous setting with just beautiful rooms and so many places to enjoy a book and soak up the atmosphere. We were visiting the Shipshewana area and this was a wonderful location. Amanda's breakfast was wonderful. We highly recommend the Solomon Mier Manor.

Our 4th time staying at The Solomon Mier Manor!

5 on August 22, 2017

It was super fantastic, a trip back in time. Since I'm a hopeless romantic it fits the bill for me and my husband. We spent our 34th Wedding Anniversary there. Love it, didn't really want to leave. Amanda, husband and children are the best. I so enjoyed them all, Caroline is a little fashion girl, she loves nail polish, William, is a fine lad as well. Baby girl is so sweet and very mature for her young age. We stayed in the Rose Room, my favorite of all, but the other rooms are great especially is you have friends traveling with you. I want too go again soon. Thank you so much Amanda, for the lovely breakfast and the teas, juice, and water. May God bless you and your sweet loving family. Family from Grant County.

Very Nice Experience

We had a quick one night stay and unfortunately I wasn't feeling well. What that did was keep me in to at least enjoy the room we had. Our room was beautiful and with an attached private bath was a great overall BnB experience. Our hostess and her children where exceptionally polite and accommodating. I did not have the opportunity to enjoy much of the breakfast provided but my fiance did and enjoyed it. Ligonier is a small town without a lot of options but Lake Wawasee is just 10 minutes away and provides a lot more. I would recommend the Solomon Mier to anyone.

I was in the area doing work and couldn't find a hotel to stay in. So I took a chance and stayed at a bed and breakfast for the first time. I have to say, I was very impressed. The rooms were clean and very well laid out. It really was like stepping back in time. I would definitely stay there again.

Can't say enough about this Victorian B&B. If you love old Victorian homes you wil love SMM, authentic in every detail. We loved sitting on the wrap around porch on wicker furniture enjoying a glass of wine and watching the Amish buggies clip-clopping by. Breakfast was amazing and nightly cookies were a pleasant surprise.

Great B&B

Short getaway

5 on May 25, 2017

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful B&B May 9th thru the May 10th. Amanda greets you at the door when you first come in. The manor is so beautiful and after you check in, she shows you around. Amanda goes over what to expect if you come back and the manor is locked up, what the password is for Wifi, and places to eat that are local. I was very surprised how quiet the area and home are. We received homemade cookies in the evening that were perfect for our gluten-free diet. I did not sleep well, but that is because I don't sleep well in other places besides my own bed. But again, even at night, the manor is very quiet. Amanda has three beautiful, friendly children that greeted us at breakfast. We had requested a gluten-free breakfast, and Amanda made a great egg and ham casserole that was a very large portion, along with fresh fruit. There was also coffee, tea, water, and OJ. We sat in the large dining room with the other guest and chatted with Amanda, her children and the other guests. I have never been to a bed and breakfast before, so this was a fabulous way to start the day. We will definitely plan on coming back. We stayed in the Rose room, and would like to try the other rooms too, as they were set up differently and offer different views of the town. Thank you Amanda and family for a wonderful stay!

Just what the doctor ordered

The Manor is beautiful inside and out. My son and I went for our annual winter getaway. Amanda took good care of us! The breakfasts were delicious and she was attentive to every detail to make our stay enjoyable, including home made cookies each night. We would definitely recommend the Manor.

A GREAT weekend at the Solomon Mier Monor!

I spent two nights in the Rose room. The room and bathroom were very clean and very roomy. Amanda was a wonderful hostess. She is very friendly, warm and gracious. The breakfasts were delicious.

Wonderful Glimpse of History With Modern Comfort

5 on March 17, 2016

Our two-night stay in Ligonier, Indiana was a delight thanks to the folks at Solomon Mier Manor. The beautiful home of the 1890s is part of an interesting history that comes to life in the people who see to all your needs and become friends. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean and bright in our Abraham room and bath. All expected modern services - internet, cable TV, etc.- worked well. Breakfasts were tasty with good variety for both days of our stay. A special treat was the availability of cookies each evening. We loved spending our time at the Solomon Mier Manor and highly recommend it to others.

About the innkeepers

I had always planned to be a stay at home mom when I had children someday, and suddenly this seemed like the perfect way to be able to do just that. My passion for baking, cooking, and keeping house all seemed to fit just right. Soon I had a goal of not only running a bed and breakfast, but also making it a unique experience. I felt that everyone deserved to see this magnificent home, enjoy an overnight stay that was extravagant and yet reasonably priced, and walk away with an amazing experience
