Ann Andre, owner of the Murphy Guest House (MGH), is now in her 11th year as the proprietor of Bristol’s only bed and breakfast inn. MGH is located at 112 S. Division Street (SR 15 South) in a Victorian style house built in 1875.
Ann is offering a special Mother’s Day overnight package in the month of May. She invites interested persons to call her at 622-0280 or consult her Facebook page for the details.
The inn continues to offer the products and services of the Bristol Tea Company, which sells 60 varieties and flavors of tea from all over the world, supplied by five tea companies. These products are served at the inn’s breakfasts for its overnight guests and at tea luncheons for groups as small as two persons. The tea products are also sold retail to the public.
The three guest rooms at MGH, each with its distinctive décor, are named for three of Ann’s granddaughters, Camryn, Jayme, and Jordyn. Two grandsons have their names on the library (Kinnick) and the dining room (Maks).
Guests at the inn will enjoy amenities such as continuous music, use of a library, cable television, wireless Internet access, and a candlelight gourmet breakfast. For reservations or more information call 622-0280 or consult the website at murphyguesthouse.com.
Guests come from all over to enjoy the unique experience at the Murphy Guest Houe, even some from as close as Goshen, Elkhart, and yes, even Bristol. Some couples visit the MGH on their wedding anniversary each year.
Ann is a member of the Amish Country Bed and Breakfast Group, the Indiana Bed and Breakfast Association, bedandbreakfast.com, and TripAdvisor.com.
