First time to South Bend. Oliver house was very clean, host were very friendly and knowledge about where we wanted to visit. Studebaker mansion/restaurant next door was very good. Had seen a few bad reviews about restaurant, don't believe them. Studebaker museum one block from Oliver, was worth seeing. We stayed two nights and our room was kept very clean... More

If LOVE is in the details, the Inn Keepers at The Oliver Inn adore us!!! A show of excellence was evident in the grounds, the cleanliness of the rooms, the special dinner reservations, and the AMAZING BREAKFASTS. She could close the Inn and still make millions off of her bacon recipe! Thank you for the welcoming atmosphere. The Oliver Inn... More

Lovely older house with some interesting history and the Oliver Suite was terrific. The beds were comfortable and the housekeeping immaculate. Alice and Tom were super hosts and Alice went out of her way to accommodate my dietary restrictions. The pumpkin bread was delicious. I would strongly recommend this B&B if you are spending an evening in the South Bend... More

Beautiful large B&B with much history and spacious bedrooms. They welcomed our one year old and even provided a high chair for breakfast. Food was good and the owners were super friendly and accommodating.

Last weekend my Daughter and I stayed at Oliver Inn while touring Notre Dame and St. Marys for a college visit. It was a last minute decision to stay at the Oliver Inn and it was a great decision! The inn is located a couple short blocks from downtown so were able to walk into town later at night. I... More

Every time we come to South Bend we try to stay in this beautiful Victorian home. The history of the area is intriguing. Each room is different but all are charming. Alice and Tom are friendly and accommodating hosts. The breakfasts are first class.

When I travel on business, I tend to pick B&B's whenever possible. They offer a quiet, relaxing environment and usually an amazing breakfast. The Oliver Inn does not disappoint. From the moment I arrived, Alice was the perfect hostess. I met Tom, but he was busy working on a project to make their inn an even a better place to... More

This is the 3rd time that we have stayed at the Oliver Inn and each time has ranked as one of our best B&B experiences - and we have a lot of B&B experience! This Victorian home, originally owned by the Oliver family of tractor fame, is simply stunning and Alice and Tom have taken tremendous pride in both the... More

I say first stay, because I will be back! This was a quick trip and overnight in South Bend. The Oliver Inn is welcoming from the moment you drive in. We stayed in the Clem Studebaker room, which we found very roomy and inviting. The breakfast spread was amazing and delicious. I'm kind of a cinnamon roll snob, WOW Alice!!... More
