I have now stayed at Shower's Inn on two trips and will continue to return when I go to Bloomington, IN. First I have to say I love Bloomington! The campus is gorgeous and surrounded by interesting restaurants and shops. The best thing of all is you also have Brown County State Park within 20 minutes and it has miles...

My husband and I stayed at the Showers B&B Inn for two nights. In addition to being able to enjoy the most comfortable bed and a large spacious room, actually sort of a suite with a fridge and sink, we ate a beautiful gourmet breakfast each morning. Brad, the resident chef and innkeeper, does a tremendous job with an innovative...

My wife and I surprised our daughter at IU on her 21st birthday. We had a wonderful time and the Showers Inn made it even that much more special. The Showers Inn is a charming B & B and we have already made plans to return.

Showers Inn is conveniently located just a few blocks from everything. Our room was very comfortable and the fireplace was a bonus during the cool fall evenings. The entire Inn is charming and the sunken gardens were amazing. However breakfast was each morning was far beton our expectations.

Very attractive property, clean, spacious and well-decorated room, delicious breakfast, and friendly staff - everything you'd want in a B&B. Also have large parking lot available on site. Highly recommend.

I am not a frequenter of B&Bs, but the Showers Inn was delightful. The staff members were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very classy. The bed was super comfortable. And above all was the homemade BREAKFAST. I am vegetarian and often am used to being disappointed when it comes to food choices, but I enjoyed every bite...

My wife and I went to Bloomington where we were married 42 years ago this week. We had never stayed at the Showers Inn, but its reputation is well known, so we tried it. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated. The grounds of the Inn are beautiful. Breakfast was homemade with much of it baked on site. Other offerings...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Showers Inn. The Inn and surrounding gardens are beautiful, and the location is within easy walking distance to the IU campus. The owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious.

The Inn was quiet, comfortable and very hospitable. There were not many persons staying the night after my stay so they generously extended my stay! I would stay there again, even if not for the extended checkout.

I booked four rooms for multiple nights back in April. Family members came in from around the country for an opera performance. I have been coming to Bloomington for about 6 years, and have stayed in many other hotels (all adequate), but somehow I did not know about the Showers Inn. I now believe this is the very best place...

“The Roosevelt bathroom is old with original fixtures/tile/etc. If you'd prefer a more modern bath/shower, choose one of the other rooms. Beware if you have problems navigating stairs. There are many to get into the house and up to the room. The Composer house might be a better choice but you'd still have to contend with stairs at breakfast.”
