I haven't written many reviews, but have stayed at a few bed and breakfasts. The Oliver Inn is simply the best. Tom and Alice are well versed in what they do. Very hospitable, and pay great attention to detail. Alice is a wonderful cook, and Tom is diligent in keeping things in top working condition. This gorgeous Victorian home....not a... More

When we first entered we were greeted by Alice, who was so welcoming and kind. She offered us homemade chocolate chip cookies on upon our arrival. The rooms were impeccably kept. The decor was lovely and the bed was very comfortable, with amazing sheets. We can't wait to return. I loved hearing about the history of the house. The breakfast... More

Offered fresh chocolate chip cookies upon our arrival. We stayed in Gertrude's room. Peaceful blue color, lots of natural light, bathroom was a two-person Jacuzzi tub that we took advantage of! The inn was quiet and clean, with lots of old things to look at. Breakfast was amazing, served on China. Made us feel very special. Innkeepers were very friendly,... More

It is a historic gem and Tom and Alice have given it a lot of love. We stayed for an Anniversary Trip. Really enjoyed our room. Warm and Romantic. Breakfast was as... More

Perfect location and within walking distance to what we came for. Fine breakfast and setting with more great food in nearby restaurants. We would stay there again without any hesitation. Thank you Alice and Tom !

Absolutely first class B&B! Great value for your money. One of the nicest B&b's I've stayed in. We stayed in the Tippacanoe Room. Nice room with large bathroom and 2 person whirlpool. The room has it all from heated towel rods to robes and more. Great breakfast also! A must stay if your visiting South Bend!

Thank you for your gracious hospitality in your elegant home. I felt like I was in a 5 star B & B !! I will never get the image out of my head of the distinguished gentleman decked out in his tux playing your baby grand piano....Thanks for all your warmth and care, Betsy Terlep

A wonderful experience. The Oliver Inn is a beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Alice and Tom are gracious hosts who make staying in South Bend a joy. The Studebaker museum is a must see. Make sure you tour the Oliver mansion also. Walk along the street and see all the beautiful houses. The Knute Rockne room was breathtaking with an updated... More

My husband, daughter, and I just drove from South Dakota to North Carolina and back. En route on the return, we stopped for one night at the Oliver Inn, a favorite of ours for the last nine years. What a wonderful respite from the road! It was the perfect way to rest up and relax. A friend of my daughter's... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. The Tippecanoe room was very comfortable and the bath was excellent. The house is a dream to wander through with beautiful antiques, etc. Breakfast was delicious. Gardens were lovely with sweet places to sit or swing and enjoy the ambiance. Hostess recommended dinner next door at the Studebaker Mansion and that was amazing. We... More
