“Gary: I’m flying out to England tomorrow with my daughter. Bed & Breakfast’s are ridiculously common. I’ve never been to one prior to yours and I absolutely love it here (Hollywood Room.) I love that it’s old school Hollywood style. I couldn’t be any happier we stayed here our last night. It’s been so warm and welcoming. Thank you for letting us feel at home. Hope to come back some day! Best wishes to you and yours and to keep the magic in this house alive!”

- Gillian and Tom (Old Bridge, NJ)

“We were so surprised when my grandmother had given us a night-stay at a bed and breakfast in Indianapolis. My new husband had never heard of a bed and breakfast! We were both pleasantly surprised how one night here was exactly what we needed to get away. We will always remember this place Old Northside B&B, where we spent our first night as husband and wife! Thank you very much! God Bless!”

- Keith and Ashley Jennings (Franklin, Indiana)

“What a wonderful, fun experience at your bed and breakfast! Love your themed rooms! We came to Indianapolis as a “Stop-Over” between family visits – What a delightful surprise! We will be telling our friends and family about your bed and breakfast and Gary’s gracious “Inn Keeper’ attention to detail and hosting. Thank you for another fabulous memory!”

- Phil and Martie Coblenty (Grand Ronde, Oregon)

“Gary, as always, you are the most wonderful host. You told us that we “started with the best” on our first visit here but we didn’t realize that you were absolutely correct! This is a wonderful home and you make it a “home away from home” for us. We appreciate everything you do for us and look forward to seeing you in April, 2012 if not before then. Thank you again!”

- Mike and Tracy Bunch (Lavergue, Tennessee)

“What a beautiful house and beautiful experience that we had in it. The warmth and relaxation pours from every piece of the home. Gary’s hospitality is unmatched anywhere we’ve stayed before. The snacks and breakfast were delightful. We are so thrilled to have discovered such a jewel of a place and have created memories which will last forever. Thank you for everything, Gary. We will definitely be back soon.”

- Lindsay and Marcus (New Lenox, Illinois)

“For all who read this, you are in for one pleasant time. Being a traveler, I stay in many hotels and just by chance I chose to stay here. OMG! I can honestly say that no hotel I have ever been to will compare in any way to the Old Northside. Gary, it is nice and inspiring to find people who can truly make your day wonderful. I know this is long but I cannot express enough my utmost gratitude! It’s people like him that make our world a better place to live in. Thanks so much!”

- John Davis (Louisville, Kentucky)

“We stayed to celebrate our 6th anniversary. This was the first time we were able to have a getaway. THANK YOU for the warm hospitality. We had a glorious time relaxing and spending time with each other and loved the cozy room. This was like a breath of fresh air. My husband will be leaving for Afghanistan in a week so this was a beautiful and memorable experience…and our very first Bed & Breakfast experience! Thanks again!”

- Kevan and Anne Bailey (Jacksonville, North Carolina)

“Dear Gary and Family, Thank you so much for making our first B&B experience so wonderful! This was a special occasion for us as we got engaged and are planning a future family together. This won’t be our last visit because we’ll have anniversaries to share in the years to come! You all made us feel welcome and at home – very sincere! Thank you again for your Hoosier Hospitality.”

- Jillian Griffis & Jeffrey Krueger (Loveland, Ohio)

A Message From Gary

I attribute our success at first being "all in" at welcoming each and every guest with the best service they have ever experienced. And second, trying to think of everything to make the experience an exceptional one. I never stop thinking about what I can add or enhance to reach that goal. The nicest people in the world come to B&B's. I know because they come here!
