The innkeeper, Tom, is a very nice gentleman who is very helpful & informative about the area. As we looked around the area we found nothing better than where we were staying. The rooms were very large & clean with private bathrooms. They had a tv & vcr as well. They were furnished with beautiful antiques with hardwood floors. Downstairs there is a refrigerator & microwave for your use. There is also a complientary video selection. They also have complimentary soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc.. if your forgot yours. They have a lot of little touches that make the inn a very pleasant place to stay. There is a butler's pantry which is just gorgeous. Each morning our breakfast would range from pancakes, muffins, fresh bread, fresh fruit, sausage & eggs to biscuits & gravy. They also have an outdoor pool and a black lab named Bo. Our children loved to play with Bo and the dog was extremely friendly. Everyday we made several trips to the amusement park since we were practically next door to it. It was in the best location so that we could travel easily to & from the park. If visiting the area again, we would definitely stay here. I would encourage all my friends that this is the best place to stay in Monticello, IN.
