Pros: Cute, historic house at the heart of Winona Lake. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Gracious and friendly hosts. Machelle makes an awesome egg casserole! She had no problem accommodating my dietary restrictions. Cons: You have to take your shoes off at the front door. Walls are pretty thin, so we could hear someone in the next room snoring.... More

Amazing 4 days in such a well kept inn. Machelle was so sweet and let us sleep in until 9 for breakfast. Bed was so comfortable. Room was quiet and very clean. The built ins are so well made. Had hot coffee, tea, hot chocolate at all times.

The Chestnut House Bed and Breakfast is nice...nicer than the Waldorf-Astoria signature suite in NYC! Of course, the bed and breakfast is a bit more cozy. There are enough activities within walking distance for at least two days. Machelle's recommendations are very helpful. I did the walking trail for a nice evening trek after eating at the Boathouse Restaurant. The... More

My husband and I stayed only one night...wish it could have been more. The B&B is exceptionally clean, well kept, comfortable. Fred and Machelle were the perfect hosts! And the breakfast was delicious.

I wanted a place to take my wife for a suprise get away. A place to get away from the world for awhile and man did I find it. The Chestnut House and its Hosts Machelle and Fred are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Machelle cooks the most amazing breakfasts. We met some amazing people around the breakfast table...

The Chestnut House is a beautifully restored old house with wood floors and attention to detail throughout. We stayed in the White Oak room, which features an enclosed sleeping porch that adds a reading nook to the suite. We had excellent wifi on the second floor. Innkeepers Fred and Machelle are super friendly. They provide excellent service and scrumptious breakfasts.... More

The food,rooms and house are so much nicer than a hotel and in most cases cheaper, you are missing out on a wonderful experience by... More

Beautiful inside and out. A wonderful neighborhood and excellent service. Thank you Machelle! We only stayed one night but will definitely return when visiting our daughter at Grace College. Quiet and relaxing, just what we needed after a long drive. Within walking distance of quaint restaurants, shops and the lake.

I recently attended my 50th class reunion. While I explored the changes in my home town, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this perfectly restored B&B. Machelle and her husband were charming, the other guests interesting and breakfast amazing and delicious.

Well to start with Machelle is the GREATEST!!! Our travel plans had changed due to the birth of our 7th grandchild, we we're running very late and she was so great about everything and told us not to worry about contacting her. The house is beautiful inside and out, a very inviting front porch, the inside is truly a labor... More
