My husband and I took a scenic driving tour through Dearborn County IN over Memorial Day weekend and then headed to Vevay, IN to stay the night. The mansion was absolutely charming! We were graciously greeted by the innkeeper who shared the history of the mansion and the family who built it while we were checking in. We were then shown to Eugenia's room for our stay, it was gorgeous. The bathroom is wonderful, complete with the original copper bathtub. There was a shared veranda right across from the door of our room, which was lovely and offered a nice view of the gardens. The next morning we enjoyed roaming the grounds and the open areas of the house prior to sitting down to our fabulous breakfast of stuffed blueberry french toast, fruit and sausage. We will definitely be back!
Just a note, the restaurants in Vevay close fairly early, we took a short drive to Warsaw, KY and enjoyed a nice outdoor dinner at the Sunset Bar & Grill. Good food and band.
