Downtown Middlebury, Indiana

Experience the good old days…today. With a slogan like that, you get that idea that Middlebury, Indiana has it together.

Cute as a button and about as small, this little place is absolutely adorable.

Middlebury, Indiana

We stayed at The Country Victorian Bed and Breakfast. Easy to find and right downtown, this was super convenient.

Unfortunately, I lost two rolls of film I had used on Middlebury (and even part of Nappanee and Monticello.  Ugh.). Yes, I am still in mourning over the great shots that are most likely gone forever.

So, the images on this page are not my own. On the plus side–I did get a nice new Canon DSLR instead. Film and traveling do not a good match make!

Middlebury, Indiana Restaurants

While generally bumming around the town, we saw several options for dinner, including Middlebury’s well-known and super touristy Das Dutchmen.

Based on Lisa’s recommendation, innkeeper of a great Indiana bed and breakfast, The Country Victorian Inn, we went to the nearby Culinary Treasures.

We ate what is one of the best meals we have ever had in a small town so far (beating many pricey big city meals as well). No kidding! I sincerely wish we had had room for dessert. What a nice family owned place.

Indiana Antiques

There’s more than just food in Middlebury! This Indiana town had a bunch of antique shops some of which were even open on Sunday. Hooray!

Of course, we completely ran out of time (it was a very leisurely breakfast and we did have to get back and pick up the kid from grandpa and grandma’s house) so we didn’t get to actually go inside anywhere!

They looked wonderful, too! These are great Indiana antique shops and not just flea market type places. You can bet that’s on the list for next time!

Go There

We both really enjoyed Middlebury. There is so much to do in the area as a whole that I think it would be very hard to get bored.

We’ve heard there are more than 75 antique, specialty, and crafty shops all found within a 10 minute drive.

It’s a shopper’s paradise–and you don’t even have to fight any traffic.

It’s SO rare that I will ever use someone’s photos here (definitely not something I hope to ever have to do again) but in this case? I can’t use my own! Image courtesy of Flickr, Mark Bajek.
