Boutique Hotel Restored to Original 1920s Form

In 1919, the citizens of Wabash, Indiana, became curious about the construction of a grand hotel. Readers of the local newspaper suggested names for the property, from "Hotel Victorious" to "The Wabash Grand" and "The Dream Hotel." The finished product, ultimately called The Indiana Hotel, lived up to expectations with luxurious terrazzo floors, a basement ballroom, and one of only two passenger elevators in town. Unfortunately, the hotel's glamour faded near the end of the 20th century, and it took new ownership and a three-year, $15 million restoration completed in 2010 to return the hotel—now called Charley Creek Inn—to its 1920s glory. Now featuring a dramatic two-story lobby with chandeliers, a piano bar, antique furnishings, and the glass-enclosed rooftop Cloud Club, Charley Creek Inn is poised to reclaim its status as a Wabash landmark.

The boutique hotel decorates its 30 guest rooms in Regency and Victorian styles. Red-print wallpaper and silk plaid pillows create an elegant country vibe in the one-bedroom suite 405, and the two-bedroom 411 suite has luxe touches such as a kitchenette, a fireplace, and a jetted tub for soaking. Rooms also feature exclusive, handmade, reversible mattresses with one soft side, one firm side, and one dark, dark side.

On the ground floor, Twenty restaurant begins the day with build-your-own omelets and assorted pancake stacks. Come evening, New Zealand lamb chops and cedar-maple-glazed salmon complement delicious wines. The adjacent Green Hat Lounge's live piano entertainment nurtures a festive atmosphere along with an onsite art gallery, an ice-cream and candy shop, and other onsite specialty shops.

Wabash, Indiana: Historical Town near Lakefront Beauty

Located about 80 miles north of Indianapolis, Wabash shares its name with the Wabash River, which runs through the town on its way east to Ohio. The town became one of the first electrically lit cities in the world in 1880, when thousands watched four Brush arc lamps light up from the county courthouse. Today, the Wabash County Historical Museum re-creates the historic event with an interactive switch. The entire town seems enamored with this time period, and turn-of-the-century buildings line the downtown area, mixed with antique shops hawking midcentury wardrobes and vintage USB drives.

Outdoor enthusiasts can find plenty of opportunities for hunting, boating, and fishing in north-central Indiana. Take a half-hour drive to Salamonie Lake or Mississinewa Lake, two elongated reservoirs lined with state parks and forests. There, hiking trails surround each waterfront area, rife with white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, and fox squirrels.
