The home, grounds, and surrounding area were all beautiful. The mill and he house are full of interesting antiques, so it's a great choice for history buffs. Brookie and Alan were very accommodating and were wonderful to talk with. They are breakfast with us and took the time to give us a tour of their historic property, which was very interesting. Highly recommend!

What a great bed and breakfast! We instantly felt less stressed pulling into the inn, where we were met with beautiful trees and landscaping. We are history buffs and enjoyed all of the inn property's rich history. Alan and Barbara are very kind and knowledgeable innkeepers. The place is impeccably designed, and the breakfast is great too!

Wow! What a nice couple! and so inspirational. Very interesting people! They have put their hand to so many ventures! This is not a 'crash on someone's couch'; this is a true B&B with delicious full breakfast and conversation, a historic setting with so much to see, and lovely rooms with comfortable beds. There is a lot to do in Crawfordsville; we spent half a day there and half a day hiking in Turkey Run. Hope to make it back again soon!

Response from B. Brookie & Alan:
Thank you Laurie and Andy. You are so nice and we enjoyed your visit. It is guests like you two that make Inn-keeping fun. It means so much when guests appreciate the history and the surrounding environment with creeks and nature. We do thank you for supporting our preservation project. Crawfordsville does have events that I think you would enjoy so please check the Wabash College calendar and the Montgomery County Visitors Bureau for up coming entertainment.

A time to celebrate.......a destination to remember. We are two artistic retirees who love history, gardens, flowers, art, music, and nature. We are Barbara Brookie White, an artist and portrait painter, Alan B White-Pianist on social media.
The Vacation Cottage is a charming 1964 house that is surrounded by woods, nature trails, and sits over a spring fed, bubbling creek, It is fully equipped so that you are self sufficient and have a house key to come and go as you please. This offers you a private place to get away from daily worries and work, to have peace and quiet or explore creeks and rocks that is Indiana's most scenic, natural setting. Go back to work refreshed and recharged.

NEW 2ND Location for business, and short term temp. employment. The Ristine-White Guest House on the north side of Wabash Campus on fraternity row. When finished the 2nd floor will have 3 rooms w/baths and a large room on the entry level with sitting room, bedroom, w/bath. Pictures to come.
Crawfordsville, IN offers many interesting things to do. Museums, state parks, country roads to bike, and near to Lafayette (30 mi), Indianapolis, auctions, antique stores, and Amish countryside scenes. The area is famous for visiting the remaining old mills and covered bridges. Chicago is only 2.5 hours north, Indianapolis with the 500 Speedway, zoo, Children's Museum, IMA (Art museum), The Pacers, Colts, Theater, major fashion malls are 45 minutes.
