Great relaxing getaway. Mansion was very clean and quiet. Great stories about the history of mansion and city. Breakfast both mornings was fantastic. During the day visited 4 wineries between Vevay and Madison. Had a great time. Highly recommend.

Absolutely fantastic stay. The mansion and our room were beautiful and exceeded our expectations. This was the most comfortable bed and linens ever! Michele was a wonderful host and cook. We would come back just for the delicious breakfast and morning conversation with her!

Our visit to Schenck Mansion was perfect. My husband and I usually stay in big city premium hotels so we were a bit skeptical about a B&B in southern Indiana, but everything about our stay far exceeded our expectations. Our room was incredibly clean, spacious, and the bed/bedding was so comfortable. Michelle felt like an old friend and made sure... More

GREAT B & B ...Michelle gave a wonderful history on the mansion and made sure we had everything we needed. Our room, drinks, snacks, and breakfast were just great. We woke to a light dusting of snow which made it postcard pretty. THANKS Michelle and daughter Ella

This is the first time my husband and I had stayed in a bed and breakfast. We were very happy with the service we received. The house was being decorated for Christmas and stayed with the era the house was from. The breakfast was wonderful and we left feeling very satisfied. I was very impressed with how clean the rooms... More

Stayed on a girls weekend and couldn't have enjoyed any more. Loved the history and beauty of the home and property. They have taken real car to keep it historical. Great breakfast, perfect place to relax and get away.

I booked the Schenck as a surprise for my husband on our anniversary. When we arrived I couldn't believe how breathtaking it was. Once we were in I was even more blown away by how truly amazing this place was. We were the only ones staying there that night which made me feel like a princess. The rooms were enormous!!!... More

This was our 2nd stay at the mansion and certainly won't be the last. Michelle is an amazing hostess and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed hearing all the stories about the mansion and about its restoration. Everything was spotless and just beautiful! We would highly recommend staying here AND the delicious cookies and breakfast!

Really enjoyed our stay. Best breakfast in a long time. Michelle was very pleasant. Would recommend it to anyone. The house is very well maintained. The house architecture was something to behold. Beds were very comfortable and the amenities were also nice.

This was beyond our expectation, truly. The mansion is gorgeous, the furniture and light fixtures, all matched the Victorian era. So easy to imagine stepping back in time and forgetting any troubles while relaxing in the rocking chairs on the lovely covered balcony in the evening. The hostess was the perfect combination of historic information, excellent service, yummy breakfast, and... More
