Fishers, Indiana
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Spent one night and enjoyed the rooms (we had 2), and the proximity to town. The hosts were friendly and the rooms were clean, with spacious bathrooms. Towels were a little small and thin for the shower. The big breakfast was good though we expected something a little more...tasty. The egg casserole was fine , not great, and the coffee...

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

The Auld Farm Inn B & B is not easily found on a GPS because it is right on a highway and Garmin and other GPS companies have problems with some addresses. But, it is worth the stay. The B & B is owned and ran by a Scottish couple and they are very down to earth and lovely. The...

Many thanks for taking the time to review our B&B, we do appreciate it. We have had a number of guests who have had slight trouble finding us using their GPS units, therefore we have put the GPS co-ordinates on our website to make things easier for people to find their way to us. We're delighted that you enjoyed the...

The room was tiny but the bathroom was really big and very nice. Everything in the room looked extremely clean and new and the bathtub was excellent. Since the room was small the bed was in a diagonal of the room which made the access to the closet not to easy. Breakfast was excellent, with very good blueberry pancakes and...

By your description, you stayed with us in room 1, which is our smallest and least expensive room. Unfortunately when guests book through a third party such as Booking.com or Priceline they do not have the benefit of speaking directly with the owners to discuss their personal requirements. We are more than happy to do that when people contact us...

Going to Cape Breton? Lucky you, it's wonderful. If you haven't been to Baddeck, go there: and if you go there, stay with Jan and Glen (and Casey! and the humming birds!). Delightful house, full of interest and character. We had an upstairs room with a private but separate bathroom across the corridor - a perfectly good arrangement. The room...

Travelling with another couple, we stayed in two upstairs rooms at Auld and had a very good experience overall. The house is easily accessible and clean, the rooms are functional and the hosts are wonderful! Two minor deficiencies are that the B&B is a bit farther from Baddeck than we anticipated and the breakfast is very basic and a bit...

Thank you for your kind review. We hope that the quiet surroundings, the bird-life and views of the countryside compensated somewhat for the 4 mile distance from town. We would be interested to have more information from you with regard to your 'uninspired' comment about our breakfast menu, as we are constantly looking to improve the selection that we offer...

The title of the review says it all, really. Very open and friendly hosts, reserved when needed, present when wanted.

So many people underestimate how much time it takes to fully explore this beautiful island. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will be able to return to explore the rest of the island at some point. We are so pleased that we were able to offer you a true B&B experience.

Our room was very cosy and comfortable with a lovely view. Nicely equipped bathroom with good quality products. Breakfast was unusual but tasty and adequate. The owners were knowledgable of the area and very helpful and friendly. We would certainly stay there again and spend longer in the area.

The owners are very lovely people, and extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the local area, but as previous reviews have mentioned, it's not at all a private or quiet stay, especially during peak times. You can hear every floorboard creak, and once breakfast starts in the dining room below, forget about sleeping. The maid conducted extended conversations with people right...

We are disappointed that your stay was not up to your expectations. As we have mentioned in previous responses, parts of the main farmhouse date back to the 1870’s with two of the upstairs room floors dating back to the mid 1950’s, which makes the place authentic and full of character, something which most people like to experience. The operation...

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that your stay at Auld Farm Inn was not as quiet as you would have liked it to have been. We are looking into a way of blocking the sound from travelling down from the room above room five, which we will address before we open for the summer season of 2014....
