Leavenworth Inn in Leavenworth, Indiana: Setting up for a Wedding

Leavenworth Inn in Leavenworth, Indiana: Setting up for a Wedding

The Leavenworth Inn bed and breakfast in Leavenworth, Indiana sits atop a large hill above the most amazing scenic overlook. Who knew that Indiana had such a thing?

The Leavenworth Inn

If it weren’t for the sign, it would be easy to miss this Indiana bed and breakfast. At least, we were so busy gawking at the large drop-off at the side of the road we might have missed it!

This is an amazing location for a bed and breakfast. Built in the 1800′s, in the early 1900′s it was advertised as Forest Grove Farm, “The Place to Spend Your Vacation.”

Guests could expect Spring chickens, fine air, and milk from Jersey cows. Once upon a time there were even grape vineyards.

Today? While it is no longer a farm, you can still expect the “fine air.” A remnant from its past, the old wine cellar still remains in the basement.  Ready for a little Indiana history? What was once a town of 2,000 (until a horrible flood in 1937) is now a town of 200. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Four buildings with sixteen rooms make up Leavenworth Inn–on six acres of land! There’s all sorts of stuff to do here–or not. I can’t wait to tell you all about it!

Our Room at The Leavenworth Inn

Peaceful and homey. Those are two words I would use to describe the Magnolia Suite.

Don’t think that by “homey” I mean small or outdated, either. We had an adjoining suite to share with the kiddos–two queen beds and one shared bathroom. Nicely decorated all around.

It is comfortable and relaxing. It’s also exactly what we needed after two very full days of exploring Indiana towns.

A small table and pair of chairs sit near a window, perfect for me to get some little Indiana work done! We also had an exterior door that leads right outside.

Kid #1 and I woke up early to take advantage of a few fun amenities here at The Leavenworth Inn–more on that later! Having easy access to the outdoors was great!

The “Breakfast” in Bed and Breakfast

After rounding up the kids, we only had to walk out of our room and through the family room to get to where our family was seated for breakfast. We were just off the dining room.

While I admit we were slightly disappointed (it is the fun part of staying in a B&B, talking with strangers!) it worked out okay. The kids got to just talk (or babble) to us while we planned out the rest of our day, which included Marengo Cave!

There’s plenty more where this came from! Stay tuned for more of The Leavenworth Inn.
