My husband and I had a wonderful one night stay at the Oliver Inn last week. Not only was breakfast the next morning served in the dining room by candlelight with the fireplace burning, but it was very delicious. Alice and Tom are very gracious hosts!

This was a great place to stay during new years. I've been to this bed and breakfast three times and never disappointed. Keep up the great service!

My wife and I stayed at the Oliver Inn the weekend of October 20-22, 2017 and enjoyed it completely. The hosts were gracious and helpful and the room charming and comfortable. It was much more enjoyable than a hotel chain and a better value. We actually regretted having to leave the Inn for other planned activities.

On paper, the Oliver Inn seemed like the perfect anniversary getaway. In person, it was even better. Elegant bedrooms were a reflection of the rest of the house, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The breakfasts were delicious and the dining room was laid out nicely to allow us to visit with and get to know the other guests. Alice and Tom, the innkeepers, were friendly and helpful to a fault.

Great food, extremely welcoming and kind hosts, beautiful home and grounds! We had a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend the Oliver Inn. It was a sleepy, rainy, fall weekend in South Bend, and we loved our peaceful and relaxing stay at the Oliver Inn.

I love this place so much. It's a great get away and experience. Im not sure if I want to change rooms since the last one was my favorite! Alice and Tom are wonderful people!

The Oliver Inn is a beautiful B & B. The house is full of history and gorgeous details. The innkeepers, Alice and Tom, were very accommodating. Alice stocked the Butler's Pantry with freshly baked goodies throughout our visit. The Inn location was perfect for our visit to Notre Dame University.

We stayed in the Knute Rockne room at the Inn, a very spacious room with lots of windows, a private balcony and a view of the well manicured grounds. The hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable of the history of the house. Breakfast was delicious! It was a lovely, comfortable stay.
