Nestle downtown Indianapolis, Indiana

Our six room B&B style Inn is located one block off Mass Avenue in downtown Indianapolis. Within walking distance are independent restaurants, pubs, jazz, brewries, live theater, shopping, a winery and public art. For many, Nestle Inn is a great alternative to a traditional hotel in downtown Indy. Our approach to the B&B style experience is modern and individualized. Each room has a private bath, free wi fi is provided throughout the house and self check in is available which enables you to arrive on your own time schedule. Our approach is more hands off than hands on. We focus on providing for all of your needs behind the scenes without disrupting your stay. We may not be your grandmother's B&B .....but even she would be happy at Nestle Inn.

  • Welcome to Nestle Inn

Self Check In at Nestle Inn

Our modern approach to the B&B experience includes self check in so that you aren't limited to a certain check in time. You might like to arrive early or problem. When you make your reservation on our website you will have an opportunity to add your self check in option.  If you are calling the Inn to make your reservation, just mention the self check in option and we will arrange this for you.

We will e-mail, phone or text you in advance of your stay an access code to enter the Inn and leave the key to your guest room in the door of your room. Your advance information will include information concerning the Inn, Mass Ave and downtown Indy. We are always available to answer questions or assist you with anything you might need once you arrive.  We are always happy to greet you personally as well.

Self check in isn't for everyone, but if you would like to enjoy arriving on your own time schedule, we will be happy to arrange this for you.

Built in 1896, Nestle Inn, an Indianapolis B&B, has been restored, renovated and modernized with history, comfort and privacy in mind.

The entire house offers free wi-fi and each room is complete with a private bath and flat screen television with cable. We may be located in the historic neighborhood of Chatham Arch and in a historic house, but there isn't anything old about us!   The Indianapolis Star newspaper recently described us as the place where "historical meets hip."

Nestle Inn features original inlaid hardwood floors and woodwork, carved wood staircases and original stained glass windows. Enjoy the many common areas which include the first floor library with its own ladder to reach those books on the top shelf and the 2nd floor living space to check e-mails, follow up on work or read your favorite book. Room 6, which encompasses the entire third floor of the house, offers incredible views of the city, a kitchen and sleeping for 4 people if desired.  Nestle Inn provides the comfort and privacy you are looking for.

Breakfast is included in your room rate and options and flexibiliy are served on our breakfast menu! Sleep late, get up early or take your coffee in your room.   Many guests find our breakfast options enhance the unique neighborhood, city life experience at Nestle Inn.

  • Weekdays: Wake up to freshly ground Nestle Inn special blend coffee and tea service and then step right next door (it's 20 steps! Really!) to Henry's Coffee Bistro a neighborhood favorite that claims to serve the best coffee downtown. They open at 7am and breakfast and lunch are served all day. Enjoy their free wi fi and artwork from local artisits.


  • Weekends: Wake up to our small plates style breakfast at the Inn served with freshly ground Nestle Inn special blend coffee and tea service. Small plates breakfast means small bites of breakfast food but there is nothing small about our breakfast or our flavors...........egg lasagna, breakfast pizza, breakfast enchiladas or banana stuffed waffles ........our breakfast is not to be missed! 


Attend a live performance, shop till you drop, do a pub crawl, eat at your favorite restaurant, go to your early morning meeting or tour Indy and then walk home to Nestle Inn.  Downtown has never been as easy as when you stay at our Indianapolis B&B.
