Whenever we travel to visit family and friends in Bloomington or to take in anything IU related, we always look first to Persimmon Inn. Great "family" feel and excellent accommodations. In addition to the usual breakfast they served persimmon bread the last time we were there - with persimmons from the tree just outside the dining room! Don't count on it every visit because they are seasonal (as Paul explained), but they always try to so something special.
We truly enjoyed our girls-only family weekend at Cozy Bear Cabin. The owner was very easy to work with, and made special accommodations when the forecast called for snow. We were so grateful! The cabin is roomy, well-stocked, and in a great location. We'll definitely be going back! -Sara O.
The Persimmon Inn in Bloomington was a great value. Large rooms, very comfortable, close to the central square with very warm congeniality from the hosts. They also do not raise room rates for sporting/cultural events. This will be our first option visiting Bloomington going forward.
We had a wonderful stay with a warm breakfast every morning. The Allison House in in walking distance to all to downtown Nashville shopping/eating. We also enjoyed a bonfire the last night during the fall weather.
Stephanie is great to work with. She made our visit very enjoyable. Stephanie even took extra care to fix gluten free snacks & meals for me.
Strap Janie made our stay absolutely wonderful. We were looking for a cozy place to stay for the weekend and The Allison House was it! Just a block away from the stores and coffee shops of Nashville, IN, which was very nice especially when we wanted to take a break from walking around. Stephanie always had a sweet treat waiting for guests in the afternoon and was very welcoming to everyone staying at the house. I would recommend The Allison House to anyone!
Very happy with the stay at the Persimmon Inn. The rooms are quaint, well-furnished and beautiful. The bed was comfortable, as was the futon. It's a great setting within walking distance of both IU and downtown Bloomington. Great hospitality with a good breakfast the next day.
I am not one for staying at a BnB, but with all hotels booked and needing to find a place to stay in Bloomington, I booked my room at the Persimmon Inn. I REALLY liked the place! The room was very clean and nice, with its own bathroom! The onsite dining was a continental breakfast, but it exceeded my expectations with fresh fruit from the farmers market and homemade Persimmon bread from the Persimmon tree on the property. I will definitely stay at the Persimmon Inn again!!
great place to stay, this B&B was right across the street from some of the stores it was so nice to be close, we could just walk back to the room drop off packages and then shop more. I love how the Allison House was decorated very cozy and I felt very at home. when I go back to brown county I will stay there again
I love this B&B it is right across from the stores, we were able to shop then take bags back grab a homemade brownie cup of tea and head back out for more shopping!!! I will stay here again when I come back to Brown County
This was by far the nicest place we have stayed! We have been in more expensive rooms and they do not compare at all to this. The service was outstanding, the breakfasts were fabulous, and the room was BEAUTIFUL!! Very close to a wonderful downtown area which is easily walked to. We just had family move into the Bloomington area so we will be using this site again.There was an outside courtyard which was available to us. It was a perfect place to spend our anniversary!We cannot say enough good about this beautiful B&B!
I was there with a girlfriend to catch up! We enjoyed our stay here at the Allison House. It's location was close to town and convenient to the State Park. Stephanie our host made a great breakfast and gave us some good ideas as to where to dine. Thank you Stephanie!
Persimmon is among the most beautifully refined and ideally located accommodations I have ever experienced. Paul and his charming little daughter provided me the best breakfast conversation I have had in a very long time. This was my first visit to the Persimmon but will not be my last. - Steve A.
My husband and I, former Bloomington residents, spent 7 nights at The Wampler House during a recent trip back to Indiana to visit friends. It was the perfect place to stay! We were able to come and go as if it were our own (very beautiful) home. Attractive building and grounds, beautiful rooms, outstanding breakfasts, and outstanding hosting by Zack and Donna, who are warm and friendly. If we get to Bloomington again, we'll definitely come back to stay.
I chose the Persimmon Inn based on their outstanding reviews as well as the affordable rate for my daughters sorority Mom's weekend. Needless to say I was VERY IMPRESSED with the entire process from booking to checking in and the entire stay. The room was quite comfortable and very clean. The owners (Paul & Sue) provided a great breakfast and wonderful conversation. Everyone at the Inn was so friendly; my only regret is that I did not find them sooner. Even though our daughter will be graduating next month we will definitely make Persimmon Inn our first choice when we venture to Bloomington. I have already given their name to friends with students at IU.
I enjoyed my stay at the Persimmon Inn. It was very convenient to interest places in Bloomington and the staff was so friendly. Given the huge prices of hotels in the area, Persimmon Inn is not only a great value but also a much more personal way to experience Bloomington.
