Staying at the Oliver Inn is like going home. You are greeted with smiles and warm hugs, shown to your room and encouraged to help yourself to cold drinks and warm cookies and to enjoy relaxing in any of the common rooms or the several sitting areas on the beautiful property. The breakfast is always something to look forward to.... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2016

I wrote a review in 2014 that was titled "The Best". The Oliver Inn still deserves this title and much more. We booked rooms for our family and also a dinner for our daughter's graduation. Tom and Alice were the perfect hosts (again) and treated us like family - or at least like you'd like to be treated by family.... More

Every detail of the Oliver Inn lended itself to the perfect weekend. The lovely Inn owners welcomed us as we arrived and gave us a tour of the home. This home is very spacious and elegantly decorated. I viewed several guest rooms and each was as lovely as the next. Our room was on the third floor and I believe... More

Excellent Bed and Breakfast in South Bend, IN. Caring, wonderful Inn keepers, great company and spectacular breakfast. What else can you say! Second visit to Notre Dame and this is the place to stay. We will come back for sure.

Thank you, Tom and Alice, for your hospitality during my recent stay. As always, my room was spotless and perfectly what I needed during a long week away from home on business. You never fail to amaze me. Great job!

Wanted a nice get away after a busy summer and this was even better than I had imagined. Great Inn Keepers, great food, fascinating Indiana history at the Inn and within a short walking distance of the Inn.

We discovered & stayed at the lovely Oliver Inn last year on a visit to Notre Dame. Our time there was so wonderful, we returned again this year! The Inn is a beautiful Victorian mansion kept impeccably by Tom & Alice, the owners. The bathrooms are modern but have touches to make them feel historic. Tom & Alice know their... More

The Oliver Inn is a beautifully restored historic home. The innkeepers are delightful people who graciously share the history of the home and help you plan your travels to your next destination. I highly recommend the Oliver Inn and will stay there again if my travels take me to South Bend, IN.

This is my first review of the Oliver Inn, but our third time to stay. I called to make a "last minute" reservation to celebrate our 25th anniversary. This time we stayed in one of the smaller rooms, but it was great--it included ample space, a comfy bed, lots of natural light, and a newly remodeled bathroom with heated floors,... More
