"Beautiful and comfortable" Oliver Inn Bed and Breakfast Tip by KathrynSOlson

Oliver Inn Bed and Breakfast, South Bend: 259 reviews and 0 photos

I’ve stayed at the Oliver Inn numerous times in the past few years when I’m in South Bend visiting friends and once on business. It’s a beautiful Victorian mansion, lovingly cared for by the gracious owners, Tom and Alice. There are several different guest rooms available (I’ve personally tried out 4 of them) and each has its own charms. Alice is a wonderful cook; there are always fresh cookies and other treats available, and the included hot breakfast is always fantastic. Often when I’ve been there she has been planning or hosting a private dinner for 10-20 people, so that’s apparently an option, too. There are also great restaurants of various price levels within easy walking distance. I recommend it to everyone I know who has reason to travel to South Bend!

Unique Qualities: The grounds are very inviting if you’re there during warm weather. They always have lawn furniture out (including a swing that seats 2!), and there’s a lovely fountain. Inside there are nice common areas that guests can enjoy, with several fireplaces for cold weather.
