My husband and I stayed for our anniversary; we just left, and didn't want to leave! Linda and Jim are so sweet and welcoming. The home is beautifully decorated and so warm and welcoming. We will be back and soon! The robes are super awesome!

I was on a visit from Pensacola, Fl. Awesome hospitality with a unique, inviting decor. Fabulous gourmet breakfast, beautifully presented with proficient service. Bedroom amenities were quaint and high quality. The bed itself was very comfortable and the linens were high grade. Owners were very attentive without being intrusive. Who could ask for more than staying in this wonderful Bed...

We have never been to a bed and breakfast and this was the most romantic place I could have imagined! I, especially, love the details that the innkeepers pay attention to from the cleanness of the rooms, to the snacks, as well as setting your room more comfortably after you get back from dinner. They are very warm and welcoming...

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...

Our stay at the Ivy House BB was beyond excellent! Linda is a charming hostess and we had the chance to chat with her and Jim prior to our departure.

Reservations were made online and Linda greeted us at the door. We looked forward to our visit with great eagerness knowing that fresh back goodies would greet us along with hot tea. We were thrilled to have the chance to return to "our" room! Thanks again Jim and Linda for not disappointing us. The breakfasts were delicious and your kindness...
