Linda made us feel very welcome, and gave us fun suggestions for things to do in the area during our stay. She provided us with gourmet breakfasts. When it came time to celebrate our anniversary, she guided us to a wonderful Italian restaurant in Noblesville. It was the perfect ending to a fantastic day.

There are so many personal touches that I must narrow them down for this review. The historical home is set up with the guest in mind. Available teas, snacks, homemade cookies and a small refrigerator full of refreshments. The appointed rooms are tastefully decorated with antiques and personal touches to make a person feel as if they are a guest...

Stayed there with my husband for a couple of days. We had reservations that we did on line. Very easy. Linda greeted us at the door and gave us a tour and the story about the house.
