What really sets this place apart is Zack and Donna. They are the perfect hosts and just go over the top with all the “little things” that add up to making a big difference. Honestly it doesn’t get better than Wampler House and we are truly looking forward to our next stay.

History of the Wampler House


There have been only four families that have owned this historic property since it was built by John and Sarah Mathers in 1857.  

It became the Wampler's House when the family purchased the home in 1938. The property included a house, barn, garage, spring house and two chicken coops on 4 acres. 

 An interesting note: In 1917 a tornado took off a portion of the roof  and dropped the chimney in the front yard where it stands today. The owners at the time turned the chimney into a flower planter. We continue to plant flowers every year. 

The Wampler House is a historic property. The walls of the original house are fifteen inches thick with brick air gap construction. The fireplaces located in the parlor and library were original as is the fireplace mantle in the parlor. The barn and garage still stand on the adjoining lot, although the original barn is inside another barn that was built by the Amish

Zack and Donna came into the picture as 2015 was waning. They had spent their lives in the hospitality industry; Zack as Chef and Donna as Manager/Host. Hospitality was their passion. It was their longtime dream to own a Boutique Hotel in their beloved Bloomington where they attended Indiana University, Zack and Donna met, fell in love and got married. The Wampler House is their dream come true and they can't wait to share their dream with you.
