My sister and I stayed here from 9/10/14-9/13/14. Tom and Vicki were, hands down, the most gracious of hosts. Bo is an awesome addition to the Inn. The room was comfortable, clean, and very comfortable. If you are looking for a very reasonable, clean, cozy place to stay while in north central Indiana, you must call them to reserve your...

We had a weekend visit over July 4th weekend with our 15 yr old daughter. We needed to stay close to Lafayette, so I researched the Lake Shafer area and found this wonderful place. You must call to reserve as it is a very mom and pop establishment, but it was well worth it. We had a lovely spacious room...

Our family of 5 had a wonderful long weekend at the Black Dog Inn. This may sound like a broker record, because all reviews read the same...friendly, attentive owners; very clean rooms, private bathrooms; refrigerator to store drinks, etc.; good breakfast meal; and Bo, the friendly dog! The owners were pleasant and generously offered an alternate room arrangement upon our...

As I arrived at the Black Dog Inn, the Innkeepers Bo, Tom and Vickie greeted me at the door by name. I asked to see the room and quickly felt comfortable. I'm extremely cautious traveling alone and overnight accommodations. Bo (Black Dog) was very friendly and I knew immediately this was the place for me. My room was extremely clean,...

I can't say enough about this beautiful 1887 historic home & bed and breakfast! The Black Dog Inn was beyond our expectations. We stayed in room #4 (Jake's Room) with a king size bed and private attached bathroom. The room was very spacious, there was a table, couch, love seat, TV, all the amenities to make it feel like home!...

My wife and 4 yr old daughter loved this place. We met some very nice families and are planning on making this an annual family getaway every summer. The owners are great hosts. Our whole weekend at Indiana Beach/Monticello was the best because of where we stayed. Can't wait for our next stay!

As one who spends a lot of time traveling for work, I stay in too many monotonous hotels. Finding the Black Dog Inn was a refreshing change. Not only is it lovely, it is a true escape. The first time I saw it (when I was checking out local hotels and bed and breakfasts), I fell in love with it...

We booked this place based on tripadvisor reviews. The reviews were good obviously but doesn't do the place justice. Black dog inn was the cleaniest place I've ever stayed and I'm picky! We have a young child and I HATE staying in places away from home. This stay was the first time I was able to take a deep breath...

We stayed here on June 16th and we were absolutely pleased!! Tom and Vicki were absolutely pleasant; and lets not forget Bo, he was so sweet! Our room was comfortable and roomy. We could walk to the boardwalk which was very convenient. Definitely will be our place to stay when we come back with the kids! It is a charming...

We stayed here as an alternative to our plans. We attempted to book a cottage, but at the last minute, we were told there were none available. In a way, I'm very glad that happened, because we would have never found this wonderful place. The room was very cozy, and we were very pleased with the stay, and the breakfasts...
