Midwest Living Review

Amy Lynch
Fort Wayne's only locally owned and operated downtown inn houses decent accommodations in a historic setting, but a slightly seedy neighborhood.

Encompassing two buildings and more than a dozen rooms, the LaSalle and Sion Bass Bed and Breakfast's homes date to the 1800s. The eccentric owners live on-site and have invested a lot of time and money decking out each guest room in a different European theme, including some with items from their travels.

The newly renovated Sion Bass building is the nicer of the two, with more privacy and bigger rooms named for Civil War-era notables. (The first-floor Lincoln suite is ADA-complaint, offering a ramp entrance and zero-entry shower.) Each suite features whirlpool tubs, steam showers, Wi-Fi and Netflix. The more basic LaSalle rooms are much smaller; some have shared bathrooms. Rates run from $65 for the simplest LaSalle option to $169 for the Hugh McCullough suite in the Sion Bass House (which sleeps four, but requires an air mattress to do so).

Breakfast is what we consider average—fruit, so-so egg dishes, sausage, and bread with coffee and juice. Guests who don't enjoy communal dining with strangers in the morning might want to consider eating elsewhere.

The owners anticipate launching a dedicated spa later this year; for now, guests can arrange in-room massages and facials ($60 for a one-hour service). The website describes combo packages, but make sure to clarify prices ahead of time to avoid any confusion.
