Located in the heart in downtown Wabash, the 30-room Charley Creek Inn harkens back to 1920s and the city’s heyday as a bustling railroad hub. When the Georgian Revival-style hotel first opened, travelers favored its sophistication and luxury and it flourished, as the Indiana Hotel, for decades. Lovingly restored in 2010, the Charley Creek Inn is credited with being a major force in the revitalization of the city’s 19th century downtown. The stunning two-story lobby is all crystal chandeliers, graceful period furniture, arched doorways, vintage wallpaper and the sumptuous feeling that emanates from the gilded feel of the past. All this historic grandeur earned it the Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration, the highest award for historic renovation in Indiana.
But history isn’t a drag here. Though each of the inn’s 30 rooms features custom designed furniture reflecting French, Victorian and Regency styles, antique furniture and luxurious comforters perfect for serious snuggling, there’s such tech upgrades as large flat-screen televisions, individual climate controls and free cable.
Over-indulge at Twenty, the inn’s restaurant where farm to fork contemporary cuisine is on the menu or The Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe and The Wine & Cheese Shoppe located in the inn’s shopping area. Then take advantage of the complimentary use of the Wabash County YMCA just a few blocks away.
