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

Pros: Great central location in South Bend. - Easy to get to with good parking. - Very pretty home with unique antiques. - Large third floor to accommodate families. Cons: uneven heating (very hot downstairs but cold on third floor). - Odd arrangement of shower/bath but folding screens were available to use for privacy. - No room key available to... 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.

I rented the Suite for two nights with my husband and one-year-old. We were the only guests at the house on a slow weekend, so we could come and go as we pleased. Although we didn't meet the innkeeper, Cindy, until our second day there, she checked in on us the night we arrived by phone and encouraged us to... More

We arrived at Innisfree on NYE at about 2000 after driving in horrible conditions, we were worried about arriving so late on NYE but Cindy was really reassuring that it was OK and contactable via email and mobile. When we arrived we got a warm welcome. The room was large with ensuite, very clean and lots of little interesting touches... More

I am from Wisconsin and my friend and her mother are from Ohio. We chose to meet half way for a weekend of catching up and this turned out to be South Bend, Indiana. I discovered Innisfree, a Celtic B & B online. The photos on their website do not do this place justice. This lovely home was a late... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Innisfree while visiting for my niece's wedding, and all in all found it to be a very comfortable experience. We arrived later on a Friday night, but we had easily arranged with the owner Cindy for the late arrival, and she had given us the code for the keypad door in advance. First... More

I checked out of Innisfree this morning after a 1 night stay. It had some pros and cons - though really, which places don't? - but the former certainly outweigh the latter, and I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone spending the night (or a few) in South Bend. I'll take you through my experience as briefly as I... More

From the moment we arrived, my friends and I felt comfortable and knew we had chosen the perfect Bed & Breakfast. First of all the innkeeper was friendly and made us feel right at home. She provided a delicious breakfast, including a variety of fresh homemade breakfast goodies. Throughout the day and evening, coffee and teas were available. Additionally, the... More

We were visiting South Bend for some ancestry research at the library and to visit some family graves. Innisfree was a perfect location for us! It was right off the thruway and in the downtown area; not far from Notre Dame or the library. The owner was extremely cordial and welcoming, and the inn was clean and lovingly maintained. The...
