My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Old Northside. It is a very nice Bed & Breakfast but it is a bit outdated (jacuzzi, shower, VHS tapes). The owner is very accommodating and the breakfast was awesome!

We recently traveled to Indianapolis for the Bands of America Grand National championships that our son was competing in. Instead of staying in a 'traditional' hotel, I booked us into the Northside B&B. We reserved the Literary Room and it looked just like the picture on the website. The home is very charming and Gary was a wonderful host. Breakfast... More

The Hospitallity was A++. Gary is a great Host and many special extras. Excellent breakfast. The inn is a step back in time and is why the B&B is such a great experience. Great neighborhood atmosphere with easy access to downtown Indy. We will be back.

Gary is terrific and the inn is beautiful. Classy with wonderful breakfasts and amenities. Definitely much better than a hotel. I went for business but it would be especially nice for a romantic getaway. In short, this is an A+.

We had a wonderful experience and are going back again in November. Gary was a lovely host. The room was eclectic and enjoyable. The breakfast was scrumptious and the accommodations were lovely. This B&B was close to Indy and the Benjamin Harrison presidential home. It was a short drive to Lucas Oil Stadium and to Broad Ripple and the Monon... More

Our stay at Old Northside was okay. We've had better, we've had worse. The Good: - The location is in an area of Indianapolis that is very neat as part of the historic home district. It was fun to walk outside, take a walk and plenty of photogenic areas for pictures. It's also located close to downtown, shopping, restaurants etc.... More

The house was built on the north side of Indianapolis in 1885. The proprietor is a wonderful Gentleman. Gary Hofmeister was just the perfect host. He showed us around the well kept old house. The living room, dinning room, and music room, are a great place to read a book, listen to music or eating a snack. Gary took us... More

This is our second time staying here. Though pricey, the facilities and hosts are very nice! We felt quite pampered. The food was superb. The bed was super comfortable. We loved the family atmosphere of the meals.

This was our first experience at a bed & breakfast and Gary made it a wonderful experience! Gary is so pleasant and helpful, his house is gorgeous and his cooking is phenomenal. We had everything we needed to make it feel like we were still at home. It was awesome to stay in the room named after the original owner... More
