“Everything about Ivy House is charming, including its delightful owner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2011

My husband and I were on our way to our daughter's graduation at ISU and decided to add to our trip a stop at the Conner Prairie Museum. The Ivy House is nearby so we booked a room. Our stay was incredibly wonderful.

Owner Linda gave us a tour of the home and shared with us the rich history of the house. We relaxed on the side porch, Hubby working on his laptop, and me enjoying a cup of tea on the porch swing. After dinner in town at a great place Linda recommended, we returned to the Ivy House and sampled one of her yummy brownies that were left for us in the dining room. Breakfast the next day was amazing, with fresh fruit and dip (thanks for the recipe!), egg and ham bake and blueberry muffins.

The house itself is gorgeous, built in the early 1920's with lots of period charm and beautifully decorated with quilts and antiques. Our room had an incredible four poster bed and the bathroom had a sweet antique tub. The home is well-taken care of and immaculate. We love the Ivy House.

I went to a film review and brought a girlfriend. We wanted to relax and we were able to easily do that. We were welcomed graciously and everything was a-one, top notch. This is the best bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in and over the years I've stayed in quite a few.

Room Tip: All three rooms were delightful.

Attending the Womens Final Four Tournament we decided to stay at a B&B instead of a hotel in the middle of the city. In looking for a place on the internet we came upon The Ivy House, and we found a GEM. We had a wonderful stay at this outstanding B&B. The host and hostess, Jim and Linda, were exceptional, welcoming us into their home with such warmth and delight. Everything was beyond our expectations. The house is beautifully decorated with such attention to detail. Cleanliness is outstanding, over the top. We were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in to the moment we departed. Beds were comfortable with the most wonderful sheets and the mints waiting on a turned down bed in the evening was a lovely touch. Breakfast was delicious, served in a beautiful dining room on an elegant table. We were greeted with homemade baked goods as we arrived and special treats waiting on the buffet server when we returned late in the evening. Nothing was overlooked. We without a doubt would highly reccomend this B&B to all. Our stay was truly amazing and we hope to return one day. One leaves with the feeling that you have made new friends.

This was my first B&B experience and it was fantastic! The rooms are emaculate, and homey with these very special touches in each room. The Inn Keepers were friendly accomodating and the breakfast menu was incredible! Love, love, loved it!! I am missing that tub, and the huge comfortable beds as we speak!

We really enjoyed our stay at Ivy House. The innkeeper, Linda, is a treasure. The food is excellent and imaginative. We arrived late and Linda had a wonderful dessert set out for us. Our room was lovely, the bed was so comfortable. We will be back.

My husband and I stayed at Ivy House after attending a very cold and rainy Purdue vs. Michigan game and were feeling warm and welcome from the instant we walked in the door of the inn. Linda showed us right up to our room to dry out and settle in before she talked to us about the inn. We have been to many B&Bs and would put the service and kindness of this inn keeper right at the TOP of our favorites. She even had dessert waiting for us when we arrived. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. We watched one of the inn's DVDs and drifted off to sleep.

OK now the best part! BREAKFAST was so yummy! The fruit with dip and juice were the best we can remember and the egg dish was perfectly prepared. We heard stories from one of the other guests about the French toast so we decided to stay another night! We were NOT disappointed!! Linda is a wonderful cook!

We enjoyed hearing the history of the house that added to the charm of this beautifully restored historic home. It was originally built by a doctor whose diploma hangs in the formal yet comfortable living room at the front of the inn.
