Went to Bloomington for the Big Ten Wrestling Championships and would come back to enjoy Showers In again. Friendly staff, excellent accommodations and fantastic food. Loved the amaretto, blueberry pancakes!

Great property! I loved it! Great bed and breakfast. I've been here twice for IU events, and would gladly stay every time I have to be in town if there was availability! It is a popular destination for IU big weekends, so book early! The breakfast was homemade and absolutely suburb!

Everything about this B&B was excellent. The room was adorable, super spotless, and had a cozy fireplace. The breakfast was delicious. The hostess serving breakfast was so kind and helpful. I was in town for business and pleasure. This is a wonderful place to stay for a former alumni such as myself and now that I've stayed, I'll definitely come...

Showers Inn was a lovely setting for our return to Bloomington and revisiting the IU campus. We had adjoining rooms which was perfect for visiting and catching up. The beds were very comfortable, amenities plentiful, and our breakfasts were hot and delicious thanks to Chef Brad. All members of the staff were welcoming, kind and helpful. I look forward to...

My wife and I stayed in the Lazy River room for our anniversary. The room was quiet and warm for a cold February night. We enjoyed being located close to campus and downtown. We were able to get anywhere in just a couple minutes. With being in our 20's this was our first bed and breakfast. The experience was fun...

I'm a little afraid to post this because I'm worried this little secret place will not be available when I want to go again once people learn about it. I've been visiting Bloomington for more than 30 years and just stayed at the Showers Inn this past weekend with my wife fro the first time. Honestly it felt a like...

Great place, comfortable rooms, friendly and accommodating staff! We were allowed to check-in early after taking a red-eye flight into town, and were asked if we had any special requests for breakfast (food was wonderful). Highly recommend!

My first experience at a BNB. Loved it. The room was large, clean and comfortable. I especially liked the hardwood floors. I enjoyed the fireplace and jetted tub. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. It was too cold to walk to our favorites on Kirkwood but will do that next time.

What a beautiful place! We came in for an alumni basketball game and ended up getting there well past the regular check in time. The hosts were incredibly accommodating AND had fresh cookies available!! Our room was beautiful, sootless, and quiet. Breakfast was the icing on the pancakes!!! It couldn't have been more delicious. We will DEFINITELY be back and...

“I've stayed in two rooms, both were beautiful and picturesque, the Lazy River and the Cool Evening. My favorite was the Lazy River. It had a fireplace, a large living area, a kitchenette, and large bathroom. The Cool Evening was very similar, but without the fireplace. I stayed there in January, so the fireplace was nice!”
