What a fantastic time we had in southern Indiana! My family’s favorite accommodations of the entire two week trip was our stay at The Pepin Mansion Historic Bed & Breakfast. Our family visit was part of a familiarization tour with GoSoIn. All opinions are my own.
This beautiful bed and breakfast was built in 1851 and restored in 2013. Located in Indiana’s second largest preservation district in New Albany, Indiana and just a short drive over the bridge to Louisville, Kentucky.
From the time I walked up the steps to the front door, nostalgia enveloped me for a period in time that I have only dreamed about. It is so romantic!
I’ve always loved thinking about the early 1900s and what it would have been like. At the Pepin Mansion we were able to experience a taste of what it would have been like to be among the rich of that day.
Our rooms were gorgeous! The attention to detail and little extras expected at a bed and breakfast did not disappoint.
Our large guest suite came with a king size bed with luxury linens, cable, and WiFi. We also had a private bathroom down these little steps!
Our second room was equally beautiful. While there wasn’t a bathroom in this room, we were given a private bathroom with our own key downstairs. It was just like being at home!
My girls absolutely loved being able to roam the house! I have stayed at bed and breakfasts before, but this is the first one that I have found that was kid friendly. Really! They welcome kids at The Pepin Mansion. I absolutely loved that!
I could tell my girls were living it up every minute we spent here, but what surprised me was that this was my boys’ favorite stay as well.
We were all made to feel so special! The kids loved being able to sit in the common room to relax or play games. We all wished we had had more time to enjoy here.
Oh and then of course there was the amazing breakfast! Look where we dined! I wanted a family photo here at breakfast, but we were going to bed so late and getting up incredibly early every morning. We were exhausted and our faces showed it. The photos are black mail worthy. Ha ha!
The home cooked food was…knock your kids down to get there first… delicious! I promise I didn’t, but I thought about it. Besides the hot food there was a great selection of yogurt, cereal, cookies, and other goodies.
On our last morning, our departure time was hours earlier than the time breakfast is served at the Pepin Mansion. I was disappointed we were going to miss the breakfast, but asked if it was ok to grab something out of the fridge on the way out. The inn keeper surprised us by coming early and having food hot and ready for us.
We absolutely loved our time at the Pepin Mansion! When you’re in the area, definitely look into a stay here! For more information and to see rates click here>>> The Pepin Mansion.
