“Perfect family weekend”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

My wife and 4 yr old daughter loved this place. We met some very nice families and are planning on making this an annual family getaway every summer. The owners are great hosts. Our whole weekend at Indiana Beach/Monticello was the best because of where we stayed. Can't wait for our next stay!

As one who spends a lot of time traveling for work, I stay in too many monotonous hotels. Finding the Black Dog Inn was a refreshing change. Not only is it lovely, it is a true escape. The first time I saw it (when I was checking out local hotels and bed and breakfasts), I fell in love with it ... the owners and, of course, the REAL black dog, Bo. Since then, I stay there whenever possible. I enjoy the history of the home, which you'll see in framed reminders around the house. Vicki and Tom are always warm and welcoming; yet they give you as much space as you may need. They let you treat the Black Dog as if it were your home. I love to sit on the big porch and to walk around the lovely back grounds. If you're looking for a wonderful refuge, you'll find one with Vicki, Tom and Bo at the Black Dog Inn. I look forward to my next stay there!

Room Tip: I love being upstairs at the back looking down on the gardens.

We booked this place based on tripadvisor reviews. The reviews were good obviously but doesn't do the place justice. Black dog inn was the cleaniest place I've ever stayed and I'm picky! We have a young child and I HATE staying in places away from home. This stay was the first time I was able to take a deep breath and let him touch things and walk on the floor without shoes. The breakfast was delicious every morning and had different things our child would eat. Tom and Vicki the owners went above and beyond to make you feel at home. Their dog Bo seemed to be a fan favorite amongst everybody. Black dog inn has a lot of charm and we'll definetely be back!

We stayed here on June 16th and we were absolutely pleased!! Tom and Vicki were absolutely pleasant; and lets not forget Bo, he was so sweet! Our room was comfortable and roomy. We could walk to the boardwalk which was very convenient. Definitely will be our place to stay when we come back with the kids! It is a charming place with a very cozy atmosphere!

We stayed here as an alternative to our plans. We attempted to book a cottage, but at the last minute, we were told there were none available. In a way, I'm very glad that happened, because we would have never found this wonderful place. The room was very cozy, and we were very pleased with the stay, and the breakfasts provided to us. This property is located within walking distance of Indiana Beach. Thank you so much for making our stay with you so comfortable!!

We stayed here August 11-14, 2011. The innkeepers, Tom and Vicki, were laid back folks and their dog, Bo, was super friendly and would just hang out in our room if the door was open. We're dog people especially Labradors, so it was like home away from home. The home is older but well maintained. The rooms were very clean, and it was nice to have breakfast ready for us between 8:30 and 9:30 am each morning in the dining room.
The only negatives I could find was that there was no internet for the guests and there were often children of guests in the upper floor rooms that were noisy at night and first thing in the morning. But it's understandable given that the Black Dog Inn is located in the resort area of Indiana Beach.

Our family loved this place. The owners Tom and Vicki have retained all the original charm and character of the inn while providing all the modern amenities. The rooms were immaculate, the breakfast was hearty, and the company of Tom, Vicky, and their black lab Bo really won this place over for us. The inn is walking distance to Indiana Beach and after a long day at the park, it was a pleasure to return to the inn and spend the evening sitting on the comfortably furnished front porch. I'm sure anybody who stays at the Black Dog will be just as taken with it as we were.
