The location was great! Beautiful place and very clean. Disappointed with the breakfast possibly because of Covid19. The room was so very hot we checked out early. Thermostat was in the hall and we believe either broken or other guests kept changing it. No home baked goods for guests...not the kind of innkeepers we are used to. Other than the food, it was fantastic.

Feels like home, great place to stay!
We frequent the Riley hospital every other month for my sons appointments and we enjoy staying here because it feels like staying in a home environment and not a lot of people like in a traditional hotel. It's on the outskirts of downtown and a 10 min drive to Riley. We usually check in late at night, and leave early in the AM, but the house guest has always been accommodating of that. We have enjoyed the stays in the past, and will continue to stay there given the prices don't increase too much depending on demand. 10/10 from us

The inn was beautiful. The upstairs suite was like its own home, and the breakfast was scrumptious. Thank you so much!
