The Red Brick Inn was built in 1875 as a Central-passage style home of Vernacular construction. Situated on a 1/2 acre one mile southeast of downtown Historic Cannelton, the Red Brick Inn is the county's only brick example of this rich architectural style. We've been working hard to restore much of this magnificent home to its original historic grandeur.

The Red Brick Inn offers the perfect blend of an old-style family run Inn with all the modern comforts of a first class resort. Elegantly appointed rooms and personalized service are only two of the many ways we strive to create the perfect setting for you very special holiday hideaway.

The Inn is located on a large shaded property just minutes away from trophy hunting opportunities in the thousands of acres of Hoosier National Forest located in Perry County, and prime fishing from Rocky Point marina, which is nationally known on the tournament bass-fishing circuit.


The Red Brick Inn is fully air conditioned and currently has four guest rooms, each individually and uniquely furnished and decorated. The Hoosier Room, the Bird's Nest, the Sportsman's Den and the Wildflower Room can be adjoined into rooms of two in order to accommodate larger groups. All rooms have full beds, with one room also containing a twin bed. Cable television is available for your room at no additional cost. The Inn also features a large sun porch and spacious dining areas, and guests are sure to appreciate the relaxed "home-like" atmosphere.
