This is the best Bed and Breakfast, and we would highly recommend it! Our hosts, Sharon and Butch, made us feel welcome from beginning to end. The impeccable
details and accents in every room took us to another world. We stayed in the spacious Paris room which was beautifully decorated, had a very comfortable king size bed, and an incredible bathroom area. The evening treat of lemon cake with blackberries was luscious! The three course gourmet breakfast was beyond our wildest dreams!! We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon . Thank you for all you did to make our stay the absolute best!
The Flying Frog was recommended to us by friends who live in Franklin. They raved about the food and the owners. They did not exaggerate. When we arrived, Butch greeted us at the door while Sharon was out shopping for our breakfast. He showed us around the place and brought us to our room (we stayed in the 1940's Paris Room) which did have a strong feel of Paris.
They are located a short walk/drive from the main street of Franklin.
The house and the neighborhood were very quiet and relaxing.
The next morning, we had coffee in the common room before heading downstairs for breakfast. It was unlike any breakfast we had every had. First there was coffee and juice followed by three courses. We began with poached pears with an orange & wine reduction and cranberries. This was followed by roast potato wedges and a cheese & spinach quiche, with a Danish pastry topped with jam. The third course was a pastry-cream filled crepe topped with raspberry and whipped cream.
As we finished with coffee, Sharon and Butch came out and talked and we discussed family, Franklin and food.
We highly recommend the Flying Frog and plan to stay there whenever we return to Franklin.
My visit was Charming with all the comforts of home . Sharon & Butch are very informative on the area. The gourmet breakfast that was served on the porch was very delightful great chefs !! I really enjoyed my night time dessert with coffee on the private balcony right outside my bedroom. the ambience of my stay was unforgettable. I will be returning to Franklin ,Indiana and staying with Sharon and Butch at The flying Frog
We have stayed with Sharon & Butch at the Flying Frog many times over the years, and it continues to be our favorite B&B. The Paris room is our favorite - the bed is super comfy and the bathroom is spacious and beautiful. Sharon & Butch are wonderful hosts - they made us gourmet breakfasts and desserts, and there are always new books to read. Plus there is a Little Free Library in the front garden which has good books. The B&B is located in the heart of Franklin. Down the street is an old theater, new restaurants, a coffee shop/bakery, an independent bookstore and lots of little shops to explore. We'll be back!
The location was convenient with walking distance to restaurants and center of town. The house was interesting and nicely decorated with memorabilia. There were multiple places to sit beyond the bedrooms. There were two big porches with plenty of seating and two indoor sitting rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. There was traffic noise during the day, but it was quiet at night. Parking was convenient. The king-size bed was comfortable. The hosts were friendly. The food was mediocre to poor. It looked pretty, but another guest and I could not eat it. Our husbands ate it all, but said it wasn't the best. My husband and I have been to many B&B's and this was by far the worse breakfast of any, under cooked eggs, fried flat tasteless potato patties topped with a tomato slice, and all heavily flooded with overly thick pungent hollandaise sauce. Eggs Benedict is not for everyone and I feel the host should have given an option for something different ahead of time. The floor and baseboards in the room we chose were in need of a good cleaning. Dirty dishes left upstairs in hallway were not cleared away in a timely manner. Cleanliness should be a priority!
