Sherman House Inn in Batesville, Indiana
Originally known as The Brinkman House, the Inn has changed hands a few times. At some point, it was renamed to honor General Sherman’s accomplishments during the Civil War–and became The Sherman House Inn.
Once a coaching tavern, you can imagine what a busy stop this must have been! Walking down the long, narrow hallway on the second level, you can almost hear the rustling of Victorian clothing.
Our room was great! With notes in our room like the one to the right, you can see why we prefer to stay “little.” Only in a small Indiana town do they let you borrow a book and bring it back next time!
Batesville, Indiana LodgingThere were a lot of doorways–more like staying in a home than at an inn! We had a small sitting area and then something like a hallway that lead to the shower and restroom. It was a unique floorplan and kind of fun!
The best part of all was the “secret” room on the second floor. Down the long winding hallway lies a large room with sofas and tables. You’ll find Foosball, pool tables, a large TV, and a workout room.
We were so grateful for a place where the kids could run around! My husband, Jeremy, and I took turns showing off how unskilled we are when it comes to playing pool while the kids entertained themselves with a deck of cards and poker chips.
Go ThereSherman House Inn in Batesville, Indiana has a long and lengthy history. I just love to think of all the different kinds of people that have stayed at this Indiana inn for the hundred+ years it has been in business.
They just don’t make them like they used to. What a fun lodging option!
