My wife and I went to The Oliver Inn for our Anniversary. Tom and Alice were great hosts. The food was awesome and the room was very romantic. The inn is centrally located within walking distance of downtown for shopping or eating dinner. We will definitely be back to enjoy some much needed adult time together.

Tom and Alice are truly wonderful hosts, who make sure all of the special, little touches are in place. The home is very clean and comfortable, the breakfast amazing, and all served with genuine hospitality. In celebration of our anniversary, my husband and I stayed for just one night. Next time, though, we hope to stay an additional evening!

A very nice place to stay. Home like comfort, breakfast to die for and hospitality that is second to none. Alice and Tom do everything they possibly can to make this a pleasant experience for their visitors.

My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary and wanted to get away for the evening, however we both had work the next morning. Our answer was staying a night at the b&b we stayed with on our wedding night. Sentimental and comfortable, while being close to home. Our stay at the Oliver Inn was the perfect answer. With its...

We loved our stay at the Oliver Inn. Alice and Tom are excellent hosts and made us feel right at home. Alice went above and beyond with accommodating my gluten free needs for breakfast, the food was outstanding. We hope to go back during the warmer season to enjoy some of the beautiful grounds. They thought of everything to make...

Tom and Alice are excellent hosts, the facility is centrally located, very comfortable, clean, and nicely appointed. The breakfasts and pastries are delicious. We recommend staying here. We have stayed here twice now and this is now our go to place for overnight stays.

Stay here!!! The house is simply amazing (as are the innkeepers), well put together, historic (yet they have modern plumbing) with a piano player and all. The food at breakfast was the best I have ever had at a B&B (especially the quiche). Simply put - a beautiful place to stay - you won't be disappointed!

I was greeted immediately by one of innkeepers - Alice - upon arrival and felt as though I'd come home. This beautifully restored mansion is a true gem. Guest rooms are immaculate, decorated tastefully with appreciated modern touches. Guests are free to relax in the library, the parlor and the porch and snacks are available in the butler's pantry. It...

We are so happy that we stumbled upon the Oliver Inn when picking our wedding venues. Alice and Tom were so helpful and accommodating from the start. We had our ceremony in the little garden on the side of the home and we stayed in the Carriage House and the Rockne room the night before and after our wedding. They...

An extremely beautiful and accomplished b&b. One of the very best I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. It's two tree lined blocks from the "Dressing Downton" Costume Exhibition at the History Museum. Going to the exhibition then a dinner in South Bend (another short walk from b&b) would make a great over night stay. The breakfasts are superb....
