We were first time B&B'ers. As I was planning an early surprise Valentines Day weekend I was looking for a Bed & Breakfast. My sister highly recommended the Ivy House as they had stayed there before. What a GREAT experience! We are looking forward to a return visit. Ric & Wendy

Ivy House is a fantastic B&B. Linda was very welcoming and took great care of us during our stay. The room and bathroom were both spotless and we loved the antique decor. The bed and linens were super comfy. We were spoiled with Linda's attention to detail. It is within walking distance to shops (many close at 6pm) and restaurants...

We have stayed in Bed and Breakfasts and Inns almost exclusively for 30 years. Our experiences have ranged from high end luxury to small and intimate to rustic. The Ivy House gets it right on all levels. Innkeeper Linda is a gem and provides one of the most restful experiences in recent memory. The Inn is immaculate. The breakfasts are...

Lovely home in quiet town outside Indianapolis. Linda is a friendly, gracious hostess who cooks a super breakfast set at an elegant dining table. We stayed in the Boston Ivy room: comfortable queen bed with private bath across the hall (dressing gowns provided). Our room was a bit tight, but we were only in it to sleep. Interesting history to...

Ivy House Bed and Breakfast is a great place to stay. My husband and I spent a 3 day weekend in Fortville in October 2015 and Jim and Linda made us feel at home immediately. Linda serves a fabulous breakfast that is presented beautifully. Ivy House has a very comfortable atmosphere and makes it easy to relax.

We were traveling on motorcycle to visit a friend for Graduation. I booked this a few weeks in advance and we were so pleasantly surprised at the warm welcome, quality of the room, and excellent breakfast! On our last day we loaded up our bike to hit the road, but ended up sitting on the side-porch for several hour reading...
