Four couples came for a ND football game and we all stayed here. Charming! The rooms are spacious and breakfast is fabulous! Not to be missed. PS they are bakers! The breads are pastries were to die for.

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

Just spent another incredible weekend at the Oliver Inn with Alice & Tom. If you read the reviews, you will find a consistent theme, The Oliver Inn is fantastic.

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

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

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!

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.
