We got the biggest room there and thoroughly our stay. This was close to everything as South Bend isn't that big. The room was huge and more than enough space for my family of four. Cool rooms in the house to check out. Backyard has things to do. Host was very nice and likes to fish. Would stay here again

For the past 15 years, we've always tried to stay at B&Bs for Notre Dame football weekends. This was our first stay at Innisfree. It was an enjoyable stay. Loved the Victorian decor and old claw-foot bathtub (although it took us a while to figure out the shower lever and the curtains didn't keep water from getting on the floor... More

I went to South Bend for business and was advised by the company to stay at the Double Tree, which was way too pricey in my opinion. I looked at options and found this gem in a residential neighborhood, not far from the center of town. The owner, Cindy, was very friendly and charming. The place is cozy and comfortable... More

We really enjoyed this beautiful old home that is really well kept. The woodwork won my heart. Lots of Irish decor! The rooms were great. We had Grainnie O'Malley and MA Lahey rooms which share a bath down the hall. The bathroom was very nice--an old claw tub. The rooms are upstairs and some public rooms on the main floor.... More

Flew in with another couple for a ND game and stayed 2 nights here. We are from Dallas, TX and when we arrived it was snowing and cold, which was so much fun for us! And the B&B had long icicles hanging from its Victorian eaves/roof. It was the end of November and the house was decorated for Christmas. It... More

We stayed for 3 nights in South Bend at Innisfree Bed & Breakfast. The email I received after booking (several weeks ago) contained all the information we needed to get inside the home for anytime day or night arrival. I kept the email in my travel notes so all went well. It was a bit unusual for us to arrive... More

I stayed at Innisfree while attending a conference at Notre Dame. The inn is a listed historic site and the place certainly reflects that. The furnishings and woodwork are very authentic with the only updating appearing to be in the kitchen. Cindy, the host, was very welcoming. The rooms are large and comfortable. The house has free wi-fi and cable... More

My stay could not have been better. Owner Cindy was very nice. met 2 very nice couples on my stay. Breakfast really was tasty. Would definitely stay there again. Sat on the front porch swing and read a magazine.
