Services We Offer
Built in 1905, The Looking Glass Inn is located in the heart of the city's Old Northside; an area that was home to the principal leaders of Indianapolis during the turn of the twentieth century.
It was Elizabeth Gates, wife of a wholesale grocery merchant, who erected this Free Classic style mansion while living here until 1907. The Inn boasts 7 fabulous guestrooms all with private baths. A complimentary Butler's Pantry stocked with snacks and beverages is offered with every room as well as breakfast daily.
The Looking Glass Inn opened its doors in February 1999 after the Life family purchased, fully renovated and tastefully redecorated the home.
Since 1996 the Life Family has been providing overnight accommodations in historic downtown Indianapolis. Our family purchased this gem of structure in 1996 and after extensive renovations our doors opened to the public.
Innkeeping is our family's passion and our mission is to deliver the finest bed and breakfast experience and most memorable
visit to Indianapolis whether for business or pleasure, let us be your hosts!
