The innkeeper Britt made the stay very enjoyable. She answered alot of questions, made suggestions and was there to help with the luggage and parking when we arrived. Breakfast was a good B and B level. The suite we stayed in was well kept and lovely. Too bad the weather was -2 and we couldnt enjoy the Sun Porch or Gardens.
We truly enjoyed our stay at this delightful B&B. The room was cozy; the bed was incredibly comfy & breakfast was delicious. Kyle & Mary were kind, welcoming & a joy to talk to during breakfast. We will definitely return!!!
One of the best B & B's I have ever stayed in. Decorated beautifully for Christmas. Big and well kept rooms. The hostess was wonderful. helpful and attentive but not intrusive. We will be back in the spring or summer to see the gardens.
Staying at the Inn at Irwin Gardens was a delight. The historic nature of the home is what makes this experience unique, with many of the 1910 furnishings and décor in place. The library was interesting to explore given that most of the books are as they were when family members still lived in the home. We stayed in the Irwin Suite on the third floor. The stairs are a bit narrow, but if you don’t mind a climb, well worth the distance. The bathroom is what makes this suite special with a large soaking tub (and bath salts provided) and the 1910 surround shower that still works. Brittany was lovely as a hostess, providing lots of information about the homeand its former residents, and answering our many questions. Breakfast was gourmet and delicious. Definitely would recommend this as a place to stay for any traveler and would love to go back when the gardens are in bloom.
Great walking proximity to cool local shopping and dinning options but good luck bringing yourself to leave the urban oasis that is the Inn at Irwin Gardens. Take every opportunity to sip on tea, coffee, and wine as you relax from any one of the dozens of inviting communal spaces that bask in the Inn's surreal built and natural architecture.
We enjoyed our stay at Buck Creek Farm. Room was spacious, comfortable bed and really soft sheets. Enjoyed the little reading nook. We were able to keep our dog in a kennel while we went out to eat at night. Our son and his girlfriend were able to come and eat breakfast with us. Breakfast was good and we could pick the time that we wanted to eat. Kyle is a great storyteller. Would stay again when in the area.
Lovely bed and breakfast in a beautiful home. Brittany, the innkeeper, is very nice and knowledgeable about the Irwin home. Breakfast was delicious with garden veggies and herbs added. The Irwin Gardens are lovely and an important part of the overall inn. The location is perfect! Close to everything. We would definitely stay again.
We had a wonderful, but too short, second stay at the Inn. My husband is an architect and he sat in the library for an hour looking at every aspect of just that one room. Obviously we'll have to come back. Meanwhile, I roamed the garden and found a little peace in this hectic world.
The house and setting is remarkable. Extremely unpretentious as so much of the place is as it probably was when the Millers lived in it. In the heart of a great small town, that is very walkable and has so much to offer, it was a delight to park the car and never use it during our stay in Indiana!
I was hesitant about booking a b&b, but everything else was booked. I was pleasantly surprised to find I enjoyed every moment of my stay here! Kelly & Joe have thought of everything, and every hand touched detail made my stay that much more enjoyable. Everything from the giant super soft bath sheet towels, to the incredible hand made breakfast - OUTSTANDING. It was super clean, nicely updated, beautifully decorated, and by far the best hotel/b&b value I have ever seen. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place! Oh, and it's within walking distance to to downtown Carmel, which is a beautiful little town! Will definitely be returning anytime I'm in town for work or fun!
Hospitable host seeking to meet the needs of their customers immediately comes to mind. it's also a lovely and charming house within an easy walk to downtown Carmel. We don't live far from Carmel but there are occasions that bring us to Carmel for a weekend stay. This B&B will be at top of our list for future stays as well.
If you're going to Columbus, it is very probably for the architecture, which is amazing. I would highly recommend treating yourself with a stay at the Inn, which is part of the history of the city as it is the ancestral home of J. Irwin Miller, the man responsible for making Columbus the architectural Mecca it is today. Incredible rooms, great service and all of the amenities you would expect. And the garden - which you can enjoy at the complimentary wine happy hour. Can't say enough good stuff - a delight.
We just stayed at this wonderful B&B. Can't imagine why anyone who knows about this would stay anywhere else locally if you had a choice. The home was charming, the food delicious, and the accommodations were very comfortable. Hosts are extremely welcoming and warm, yet are keen to give privacy and space. Lots of complimentary extras (snacks & drinks), free parking, very safe neighborhood, walking distance to nice shops and restaurants in charming part of Carmel, next to lovely Monon trail paved greenway for walking/biking, and everything else of Carmel / North Indy is as close a drive as every other lodging. Hands-down an incredible value for price.
Kelly and Joe are great hosts and their property is lovely. The room was incredibly clean and comfortable. I can't imagine that you could find a better breakfast anywhere. The food was amazing and there was plenty of it, including snacks, bakery goods, and drinks in the butler's pantry. Don't hesitate to book a stay at this bed and breakfast; you won't regret your choice!
My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn for one night while visiting my parents, who live nearby. The house and gardens are just beautiful, and unique for places to stay in the area. We have visited a large number of country houses, chateaus, etc. in Europe and it felt like we were back in Europe while at the Inn at Irwin Gardens. Anna, our innkeeper, was very hospitable and the breakfast was very good. We also loved being able to walk to nearby restaurants. All in all we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay and we hope to return.
This was a GREAT find! Joe and Kelly could not have been more gracious hosts. The location was perfect just a few blocks from the Art and Design District. Breakfast was superb. Room and Home immaculate.
Delightful step back in time to a world of quiet peace and refined beauty. Service was outstanding. The elegant breakfast was delicious. Enjoying complimentary wine while strolling the breathtaking gardens was an extra treat. The Inn truly gives one a sense of how the wealthy lived early in the 20th century.
My husband and I only had a short time for a getaway, so we came down to Columbus, IN. The Inn at Irwin Gardens was absolutely amazing! The staff are friendly and accommodating; the Inn is gorgeous, but still homey; the room was very comfortable and the garden was lovely. So glad we stayed here and I'd love to come back for a longer stay next time.
This was my third visit to Buck Creek Farm. It is a super pet friendly B&B. Dogs can stay in the rooms and if you want to go out and leave your dog Kyle and Mary offer to check on them and let them out. There are horses, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, a donkey, resident dogs and dogs being boarded. In addition they sell produce and flowers. Breakfast is yummy and is prepared at the time you request.They were happy to make allowances for a vegetarian diet. The rooms are upstairs, three bedrooms and one bathroom. Kyle and Mary will accommodate you if you just want one room they will not rent out the others. Much more private that way. Kyle and Mary are very friendly. They steered us to an antique mall and to downtown Indianapolis to enjoy the canal district. There were four women in our party. We were each given a dozen eggs at no charge as well as a pint of strawberries.
Such a treat to stay here for our daughter's graduation from Butler. Kelly and Joe were wonderful hosts and really nice humans, the rooms were exactly as pictured and very clean, the sitting area downstairs with the gas fireplace was a great spot to relax together in the evening, and the breakfasts were extraordinary! They were even able to accommodate our special diet with pizzazz! Many thanks, Kelly and Joe, for making a special weekend even better. - Karen & Mike (Saint Louis) - Lois & Lou (the grandparents from New Orleans)
I have visited Indy many times and this was my first visit to Carmel. I definitely will return and stay at this BNB. Absolutely lovely! The room was super comfortable and the food delicious. Joe and Kelly are incredibly kind and welcoming. This BNB is close to a beautiful train that runs the length of Carmel and also is just a few blocks from the Art District, which has great shopping and food. If you want to pop into the city of Indy, you are about 25 minutes away. Very easy and quick drive. Thank you, Joe and Kelly, for such a wonderful stay!
Nice house, my wife loved it. Well kept neighborhood, enjoyed the Monon trail, Comfortable walk on the trail to downtown Carmel, found a number of tempting restaurants that made it hard to decide what to eat. Will visit again if in the area.
