The Oliver Inn in South Bend, Indiana is at the top of our favorites list. The historic mansion is lovingly decorated in Victoria elegance and sits on a lush acre of manicured gardens, a nice place to sit on the lawn swing and relax while listening to the grand fountain trickle. The host and hostess are enthusiastic to tell the history of days gone by. You can just imagine yourself get transported in time when you sit in the parlor and listen to the music from the grand piano. There are complementary treats in the butlers panty and a candlelight breakfast on fine china in front of the fire is a treat.
A wonderful diner to extend the evening of historic discovery was in the restaurant just a short walk next door the Studebaker Mansion. Then to return to our grand room with a comfy King bed, leaded glass windows, beautiful hard wood floors and large bathroom with a nice double air jet tub. What more could anyone want.
Each morning or evening Dick and Venera or their staff helps with things to do and places to go in the area. They watch over the Inn to make sure each guest is cared for. Weather your visiting the area for Notre Dame; on business or just learning history this is the best place to stay in South Bend. We will be returning again and again.
