Girls Getaway: Richmond Indiana: Phillip W. Smith Bed and Breakfast


  When I started trying to figure out how I was going to celebrate my 40th birthday, I knew I wanted it to be fun and a good time with friends.  I started researching and found a Chocolate Train that seemed like fun in the small town of Richmond, Indiana.  What girl could say no to chocolate? Well they wouldn't be my friends if they could!
   Trying to decide what type of lodging was easy, a bed and breakfast. However, Richmond has several and the search was on. I began emailing with a few of the owners and set up a conversation with Jill. Jill and her family own 2 separate B&Bs in Richmond and she recommended Phillip W Smith for my friends and I with the Just Us Girl package. There were just 3 of us so she set us up in adjoining rooms that could accommodate. We had the Blue Room and the maid's quarters with a center shared bath. It worked out perfectly!

      The Just Us Girls package included a coupon packet for several business around town as well as the breakfast and evening dessert that all guests receive. 
    Breakfast on Saturday was amazing!  We had a delicious plate of baked french toast, sausage and fruit. Beverage available were orange juice, water, teas and coffee. 

    Once we finished and chatted with the other guests for a bit, we headed out to start the chocolate trail and have a fun day. That's for another blog post!  After the fun,  we headed back late to the B&B to rest up.  We checked the fridge (located on the 2nd floor, central to all of the guest rooms) for the nightly dessert. Cheesecake! Paired perfectly with the wine that we purchased on the trail earlier in the day. This area is also stocked with a Keurig and coffees and teas. There is silverware, a wine opener and mugs as well as the microwave. There is also a microwave for warming up leftovers!

    One last breakfast with Jill and her son before we headed home.  She made an amazing egg souffle with English muffin and BACON! The strawberry preserves were delicious as well and of course fruit. 

   We had a great weekend and I will definitely be staying at bed and breakfasts again! Phillip W. Smith is an awesome place to stay and a wonderful atmosphere.
