Our hosts were most gracious and informative . Alice's breakfast was scrumptious. Beautiful, beautiful home!!! The history of the house is fascinating and the nearby tours were great. We took a walk downtown to the South Bend Chocoate Cafe for an evening snack and enjoyed the unique architecture of many buildings. Thank you!

This is a very beautiful, historic family mansion turned into a bed and breakfast. My room was gorgeous, comfortable with well furnished pieces. The hosts were very nice people and very helpful. The place is well located near the downtown and in a historic district next to Tippecanoe Place, a lavish historic restaurant. Across the street a bit is a...

The house is full of character, the hosts are charming & the location convenient - everything, & more, that we look for in a B & B. Our main reason for visiting South Bend was to visit the Studebaker museum. Not only is the Oliver Inn a short walk away, but it's also closely intertwined with South Bend's industrial history...

Beautiful historic home. Well maintained, nicely decorated and very clean. Beautiful grounds too. Plenty of space to sit and relax, both inside and outside. Alice and Tom are friendly and helpful, yet not intrusive. The breakfasts were gourmet and delicious, and flexible to accommodate our desire for meat-free and low carbs. They also promptly returned an item we left behind,...

Take it from me, we owned 2 vacation rentals. The cleanliness, sumptuous linens, great amenities (read chocolate!) and out of this world breakfasts go over and above the typical B&B experience. The 11,000 sq ft mansion has a lot of rooms to choose from all with private baths. Best place to stay in South Bend, Mishawaka.

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....

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...
