Simpler Way of Staying If you are looking for somewhere that reminds you of a simpler way of life in a simpler time then Black Blanket Farms Bed & Breakfast is the perfect place. The home, with a foundation dating back to the 1800s, is true to its history. Items and furniture from different decades bring back memories and stories from the past while reminding guests of the important parts and people of life. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and encourages guests to enjoy their visit. And with the renovations and updates recently completed, you and your company will not be short of any amenities. However, you might find that you would rather spend time outdoors. [caption id="attachment_11010" align="aligncenter" ] New bathrooms[/caption] 2. Natural Environment Although it is just a few minutes away from the world-renown Purdue University, Black Blanket Farms feels like a peaceful and quiet retreat away from the busy, fast-paced world. Whether you decide to wake up with the sun and spend a quiet morning walking around the pond or if you are a night owl and would rather stargaze, both are opportunities that can best be taken advantage of at Black Blanket Farms. The fresh air is rejuvenating to the soul, and the view from the back porch is a beautiful picture of the natural charm of Indiana. 3. Farmhouse Hospitality
