Nestle Inn......to downtown Indianapolis

Our six room B&B style Inn is the closest Inn to downtown Indy located one block off Mass Avenue. Within walking distance are independent restaurants, pubs, jazz, breweries, live theater, shopping, a winery, public art and the convention center.
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.

Nestle Inn is a great alternative to a traditional hotel in downtown Indy

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 late.......no problem. 

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.

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.  

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....then pick the breakfast option that fits your needs:


  • Weekdays (Mon-Fri) : Wake up to freshly ground Nestle Inn 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 (Mon - Fri).   Enjoy their free wi fi and artwork from local artisits. This complimentary option is included in the price of your room. A breakfast voucher will be in your room upon check in. Don't forget to take it with you when you order off their menu.
  • Weekends: (Sat and Sun) Wake up to our freshly ground Nestle Inn blend coffee and tea service and then make your way to either Henry’s Coffee Bistro or Louie’s Wine Dive. Henry’s is right next door and Louie’s is about 3 blocks away on Mass Ave and is a short walk away. Henry's opens at 8am on the weekends and Louie's serves breakfast/brunch from 9am to 2pm.  
  • Flexibility and privacy for breakfast reflect the individualized service guests have come to expect at our Indianapolis B&B. Many guests find these breakfast options enhance the unique neighborhood, city life experience at Nestle Inn.

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.
