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

We have returned to The Oliver several times over the years and it remains as friendly and warm as always. Great house with history, very nice rooms, warm and not overbearing hosts, and a terrific breakfast. This is really a Select B and B

The Bed & Breakfast is decorated to the architecture of the home. It has the details of those older houses, that make it so wonderful. Our room had a double air tub, with chocolates on the bed, piano love songs CD in the CD player, oh, so soft heated towels, single rose on the side table, and simple fireplace and... More

My daughter and I stayed here for a mother/daughter weekend. Tom and Alice were wonderful hosts! The inn is absolutely beautiful and the breakfasts were delicious. We stayed on the third floor in the Garden View Room and just loved the unique bath. It is very close to everything downtown.

We have regularly visited South Bend over the past four years and find The Oliver Inn to be the a fantastic accommodation. For all of our visits now (Notre Dame University Fencing competitions) we don't consider any other accommodation. Always treated well. Everything is comfortable. Food is excellent. Hosts exemplify what one wishes in a B & B.

My wife & I stayed for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had tickets to the South Bend civic theater. The Oliver Inn is close to the Morris Center and SBCT. The room was very nice, the house is amazing and our hosts Tom & Alice were delightful. We would visit the snack pantry at night upon our days return and... More

Stayed on a cold January night and could not have been more comfortable. The inn is a short walk to downtown South Bend, and despite the cold weather I had a quick stroll to the Fiddler's Hearth. The inn has a pantry with snacks that's available all night. Room was comfortable. Best part of my stay, though, was the very... More

This was the first time staying at a B&B in the South Bend area. We were visiting family over the Christmas holiday, and found the experience wonderful on many levels. We stayed in the carriage house, and we're welcomed with a lit Christmas tree and warm cookies....a treat after an 8 hour drive. Owners Alice and Tom were kind hosts... More
