Bloomington bed and breakfast Wampler House under new ownership

Sally Nicholson always wanted to own a bed & breakfast. Being a hostess was the dream, plus she’s gifted in the kitchen.

Daughter Jessica Kelwaski and her husband, Marc, invest in rental properties and found the Wampler House for sale on Bloomington’s south side. The property is nestled into the lush green foliage hugging South Rogers Street, and when rounding a curve, the historic house sits atop a shallow hill. A white-painted chimney stack became a flower planter in the front yard after a tornado knocked it off the roof in 1917.

However, the Kelwaskis waited to tell Sally. They didn’t want to get her hopes up and find out they fell in love with a house in need of expensive repairs. But they found none, and the numbers made sense.
