This was our first stay at a B&B and we had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful, breakfast was great, and Gary was an excellent host.

Beautifully furnished period home. Gracious and interesting host - former actor and entrepreneur willing to share experiences but not pushy.

Charming historic home

The Old Northside Bed and Breakfast is a charming old home in a historic section of Indianapolis. There is convenient parking and the owner was friendly and helpful. He had homemade cookies and made us coffee when we arrived. The home is filled with antiques and collectibles and was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Our room was large and comfortable with a gas fireplace. This is a nice place to go for a date night or anniversary. We met young couples at breakfast which was pleasant. This was much cozier and romantic than staying at a hotel.

So happy you had a great experience here! If you are a theatre lover, we must have had some wonderful conversations as well since that's how I used to make my living as a professional actor/singer. Come back soon.

Could have been much nicer

Pros: The theme of the room was cool, the location, and the snacks.
Cons: De-clutter, improve on the breakfast, thoroughly clean the home, and keep video games and children movies off when guests are present.
Location: This is located in the old northside of downtown Indy. There is a lot to do in Indy and this is a great location.
This B&B was in a great neighborhood in a great old home and had a lot of potential. The home itself was very cluttered with personal pictures and needed to be thoroughly cleaned as there were cobwebs in the lamps. The person in charge had her 2 young children with her, so there were video game and movie noises when we arrived and in the morning. It wasn't bad, just not something we would expect in a fairly expensive B&B. The room was very cool, but the bed was not very comfortable and some of the light fixtures were missing light bulbs or didn't work. The food the next morning was nothing great. Frozen waffles were available, gum drops were on the table, sausage patties, and scrambled eggs. Nothing gourmet about it. There was an area with a Grand piano, but it was very cluttered with what appeared to be recording studio type things on top. The cookies and nuts as well as the drinks available were a nice touch, but we would not be recommending this place or going back. Too bad, because there is a lot of potential with this great old home.
