“Of course, we will come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

My wife and I are from Berlin, Germany. We stayed in Chestnut Bed & Breakfast for one week after one week in Chicago. This is a perfect combination of visiting a fantastic city and the relaxing country side living. Winona Lake is 2 minutes away.
Lovely and detailed interior in the house. Very warm atmosphere, you feel home immediately – perfect.
Nice wood swinger on the veranda with candlelight on the table at the evening.
Breakfast at one big table in a dining room which helps to communicate with other guests (but you may have breakfast in your room, too, if you want – no pressure, just relax!).
Pull off your shoes when entering the house but don´t be afraid –single use house shoes offered for free.
We booked the Chestnut apartment. Huge room with big space for your stuff (not usual in the States). Kitchen with microwave, refridgerator, dishwasher. Ironing device and adjustable air conditioning (of course). Big bathroom with jacuzzi and shower.
But the most important is Machelle and her husband. She is so friendly and offers so much hospitality that we decided to come back. There is no doubt about it.
She makes everything possible. Her cooking has been great (I loved her French toasts). But you may get fresh fruits the same way as omelette. Not comparable to the junk food offered in many hotels for breakfast.
The room has been cleaned every day and the house is perfectly cleaned, too.
We have to recommend the “Chestnut” from the deep of our heart and we would like to say thank you to Machelle and her family to make our trip to the USA unforgettable.

We stayed here while attending a literacy conference in nearby Warsaw. (There were 8 of us, so we rented the entire house.) The owners were very helpful and nice. Plus, the breakfast was delicious! The rooms were amazing, with beautiful wood and modern amenities throughout. We loved sitting on the porch at night to drink wine and chat. Plus, the sitting area inside was perfect for late-night conversations. It is an easy walk to Winona Lake for dinner at Cerulean or BoatHouse - or a stroll along the water. We will definitely be back again next year - and for years to come! Thank you.

Room Tip: Every room (we used all four, and we looked in each one) is amazing and has its own special touches.

Immaculate condition, great rooms, and very friendly people make this a place we'll definitely come back to. Oh, the breakfast was great as well! Great location, close to downtown and trails. Machelle was very accommodating, and let us check in early.

I have stayed at the Chestnut House several times for business. Every stay was exceptional and host was extremely accommodating. Breakfasts far surpassed any offered by other b&b or hotels I have stayed at. Can't get enough of the great coffee or the baked oatmeal!

Wonderful location - walking distance to the shopping and dining at Winona Lake.

The rooms are beautifully furnished and cabinetry is well made. House is meticulously well kept. You simply must stay at the Chestnut House if you have reason to be in the area. And maybe the reason you come to Winona Lake is to stay at the Chestnut House.

Less $ than local hotels and 1000x's better! The whole house was spotless. There is nothing to complain about. The inn keepers Fred and Machelle had everything you ever dreamed of needing and was just a phone call away if you had a question.
The bed had wonderful pillows and was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. I hope I can go back again. It was worth the $.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any of the rooms.

This B&B is perfectly positioned in the center of Winona Lake. The house is beautifully maintained and has captured the historical charm of the city's hey day. Fred and Machelle are top notch! Machelle makes a great omelette. The room was spotless. I appreciated the no shoe policy. The carpet looks new. There is a bathroom in each room and everything in mine was spotless and looked new. The room had everything including iron, ironing board, hair dryer, shampoo, soap, phone, TV, wifi, and more. I stayed on a snowy night. They were out shoveling when I went to sleep at midnight and back at it at 5 am so I could get out and to the airport. If you love Winona Lake you must try this B&B! Why staying in a boring hotel?
