Five Guest Rooms

Each of our guest rooms features either one queen bed or two twin beds and a private bath.


Nestled in the gentle rolling hills of Southern Indiana, Brown County is only miles away, by worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The Allison House Inn is the perfect complement to the quiet charm of this scenic area. With a mood and a decor reflecting the relaxed lifestyle of its innkeepers, each of the Inn’s five rooms is individually decorated with an emphasis on coziness, comfort, and charm.

The home itself was originally constructed in 1876 by the Allison family who were prominent figures in the community and started what would become the local newspaper, The Brown County Democrat. It is from this tradition by which the Allison House Inn is named.

The Allison House Inn was transformed into a Bed and Breakfast in 1986 by Tammy Galm, the original Innkeeper.

In the summer of 2004, Jeff & September McCabe along with Tim O’Bryan as the Innkeeper took over ownership of the Inn.  The McCabe’s (Jeff and September) and the O’Bryan’s (Tim and Megan) have owned and operated the Inn for 10 years and still make appearances at breakfast from time to time and to visit with long time friends and guests of the Inn.  Your Innkeeper, Stephanie Bube has been with the Inn since the spring of 2013.  She has a background in the culinary arts and dietetics.  Stephanie is helping us operate the Inn with the same motto we always have had, “Guests for life”.
