We stayed for one night. Gorgeous and tons of Victorian charm. Breakfast was wonderful, very elegant with candles lit and piano music playing. The Tippecanoe place in the Studebaker mansion is a must do for dinner and they encourage you to walk around and tour the mansion which we did. Highly recommend B&B and location.

Wow! I've stayed in East Cost bnb's but this secret getaway, the Oliver Inn, in South Bend Indiana really impressed me. The grounds have lush vegetation and beautiful areas for photo ops, I can't wait to see them in June when we return to the area. Step inside and be greeted by lovingly maintained and enhanced Victorian era furnishings from...

Was in town for football weekend at Notre Dame. Very romantic room, with a jacuzzi tub big enough for both of us, a fireplace in our room, and a lovely view of the back yard. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer. Great breakfasts, and I loved the hanging glider in the back yard.

My mother and I stayed here. Don't be afraid to stay because you may have problems climbing stairs and can't stand for long, if you can stay sitting in a chair, they have the early version of the chair rail systems. My mother never used it, of course, but it had been offered a couple times. Breakfast was great both...

We had a wonderful stay at The Oliver Inn. Our room was spacious, exceptionally clean and beautiful. I loved the sheets on the bed- they were so soft. Alice prepares and serves delicious breakfasts. We had chicken waffles and warm strawberry scones that were wonderful. I would highly recommend the inn for business or leisure travel.

My wife and I went to The Oliver Inn for our Anniversary. Tom and Alice were great hosts. The food was awesome and the room was very romantic. The inn is centrally located within walking distance of downtown for shopping or eating dinner. We will definitely be back to enjoy some much needed adult time together.

Tom and Alice are truly wonderful hosts, who make sure all of the special, little touches are in place. The home is very clean and comfortable, the breakfast amazing, and all served with genuine hospitality. In celebration of our anniversary, my husband and I stayed for just one night. Next time, though, we hope to stay an additional evening!

A very nice place to stay. Home like comfort, breakfast to die for and hospitality that is second to none. Alice and Tom do everything they possibly can to make this a pleasant experience for their visitors.

My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary and wanted to get away for the evening, however we both had work the next morning. Our answer was staying a night at the b&b we stayed with on our wedding night. Sentimental and comfortable, while being close to home. Our stay at the Oliver Inn was the perfect answer. With its...

We loved our stay at the Oliver Inn. Alice and Tom are excellent hosts and made us feel right at home.
