Venue Description

Nestle Inn ... to Massachusetts Avenue and the Chatham Arch historical neighborhood located in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. Our five-room inn, which is voted the < Inn/B&B in Indianapolis by TripAdvisor, is nestled in the heart of Mass Ave, described as "45 degrees from ordinary." Nestle Inn is within walking distance of the Avenue which offers independent restaurants, brew pubs, jazz, live theatre, shopping, public art, and top-rated galleries. Sports fans are minutes away from the Indianapolis Colts, Pacers, and the Indians. Music and entertainment fans are similarly close to the symphony, theaters, and live music venues.

Built in 1896, Nestle Inn 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 television. Located on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, an urban bike and pedestrian path, Nestle Inn is the perfect place to begin your exploration of the five Indianapolis cultural districts the trail connects.

Comfort with You in Mind
Sleep late, get up early, take your coffee in your room—we provide flexibility and options for your breakfast experience.
  • On 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. Breakfast and lunch are served all day. Enjoy their free Wi-Fi and artwork from local artists. This complimentary meal option is included in the price of your room each morning.
  • On weekends, wake up to our tapas-style breakfast at the Inn served with freshly ground Nestle Inn special blend coffee and tea service. Enjoy assorted juices, homemade breakfast pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt and much more! Tapas-style means small bites of breakfast food ... but there is nothing small about our breakfast. Our urban-style breakfast is not to be missed! This complimentary option is included in the price of your room each morning.
