Azalea Manor is a beautifully preserved antebellum home in Jefferson County's Madison Indiana historic district overlooking
the Ohio River. The Madison Historic District, also known as Downtown Madison, on
the National Register of Historic Places as a National Historic Landmark, is one of
the loveliest and best preserved cities in the nation. As one of the premiere
historic sites in the United States, Madison Historic District is naturally one of
the top romantic tourist attractions for
couples of all ages, honeymoon
romantic retreats, anniversary destinations and wedding locations.
Established in the 1800's, Madison has the charm of the old South and an
interesting history. As you learn more on this web site and others, it’s easy to
see why the Azalea Manor is considered one of the best Indiana Bed and Breakfast Inns. Azalea Manor located in the heart of
the historic district is within walking distance of an outdoor shopping mall on Main Street made of individually owned and operated
specialty & variety shops, antique stores, coffee shops, handcrafted candy shops, restaurants,
the Ohio River, the Visitor’s Center, public library, museums, public historic homes and churches. Well
known Hanover College and Clifty Falls State Park are just a few miles west of the Bed & Breakfast, and Cedar Cliffs Park is a few
miles to the east. Azalea Manor, like the surrounding Madison Historic District,
is for those who like to travel inn style.
The Azalea Manor B&B, one of the oldest homes in Madison circa
1833, emanates the ambiance and charm of a lost era with ten foot double entrance
doors, twelve foot ceilings, velvet fringed drapes, old shutters and window
cornices, antique furnishings, and large Italian marble fireplaces. A large library
of classic books from the past, classic records (old 78, 33, and 45's) ranging from
the 1920's through the 1960's, and glowing hurricane lamps will soon take you back
in time. Think of us when you plan to visit Madison.
