Schenck Mansion Bed & Breakfast Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Vevay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2005

My spouse and I are veterans of over 100 bed-and-breakfast visits, and we've never found one as elegant, comfortable, and splendid as in our recent visit to the Schenck Mansion in Vevay, Indiana. The attention to detail in every aspect was a true delight. The hostess is amazingly gifted in renovation, hospitality, and the culinary arts--I'm completely in awe of her skills, and equally grateful she chose to share them with fortunate travelers in this setting. The place is a 130-year-old, 35-room mansion (with a tower! no rooms up there, alas). The five bedrooms are spacious and well-furnished (fine antiques for decor, sturdy and highest-quality reproductions for beds); the setting is lovely and tranquil (deer grazing, fountains, bluebirds, frogs); and the breakfast surpassed any I've had at equivalent B&Bs throughout the country. Rates are reasonable for the area (and a great value for the opportunity to stay in such a place). We stayed in the Eugenia Schenck room, which featured one of the original copper-and-walnut bathtubs and a king-sized bed ("comfortable" doesn't begin to describe it). There was a television, but we didn't feel the need to use it even once--the opportunity to sit on the veranda and watch the wildlife was more than sufficient--though we were grateful for the air conditioning once back in the room. If you are looking for a travel destination that is peaceful and relaxing (and, of course, only a few miles from a fine casino should you *need* that type of diversion), a stay at the Schenck Mansion will allow you to experience true excellence in the art of hospitality. It is elegant but never intimidating, tranquil but not boring, and beautiful in a way I hope never to forget.
