Stayed for 2 nights with my father, attending the Notre Dame home opener. Wonderful host, beautiful character home, everything was clean, breakfast food was delicious, many choices. 7-8 minute drive to the Notre Dame Campus.

Our first Bed and Breakfast stay

The owner of Innisfree was extremely friendly, warm and welcoming! There was an incredible amount of charm and the house had a wonderful Irish feeling. This was our first time at a B&B and my wife and I were not disappointed. While we don't have other B&B experiences to compare this against, we were very happy with our time there and would strongly recommend Innisfree!

Lovely home and hostess, breakfast okay

Stephanie very lovely, helpful with restaurant and attractions information. Beautiful and well maintained home. Location very nice and central to downtown. Accessibility after hours very good. Breakfast served was pre-made quiche, fruit, yogurt, raisin bread, chicken sausage - nothing special. Seating at 9:00 was late for my schedule. Social hour not offered. Toiletries provided were family style - not individual sized. Price was reasonable except for charge for extra guests (same room). $25 per extra per night pricey for the simple meal. Would stay again for only two people and plan breakfast out.

Innkeeper Response
We're glad you chose to stay with us for your visit to South Bend. We hope the next time you visit you can let us know if you need breakfast at another time - we are generally quite flexible if we know your needs. We keep complementary individual sized shampoo and soap available in all bathrooms. We do charge an extra person fee of $25/night, but that is common in B&Bs. The room rate is for double-occupancy. Additional people beyond the first two are charged a discounted rate for the stay in the room as well as breakfast. There are lovely places to eat around here. I can recommend some places (even for breakfast) if that is what you are in the mood for!

Charming vintage B&B. Wonderful, relaxing home to stay in. Friendly owner. Would definitely use this B&B again.

Quaint and charming Inn, close to Notre Dame University

We stayed at the Innisfree Bed and Breakfast while attending a function at Notre Dame University and it was perfect for us. We had a lovely morning visit hearing about the history of the Inn from the owner Stephanie. . We enjoyed also that it was in walking distance of restaurants and activities. I would absolutely stay there again. .

More than we had hoped for!

For our purpose of being in the historic district west of downtown South Bend, Innisfree exceeded our expectations. The hostess was most accommodating. We hope to return to South Bend, to see more of the sights, and would plan re-staying at Innisfree.

Excellent Place to Stay while in South Bend

My daughter and I recently stayed and just loved this B&B. The house is beautiful and the room had everything we needed. Our hosts were lovely and we look forward to visiting again.

Beautiful and charming BNB! The owners were lovely and so hospitable.

First (but definitely not last!) Visit

My husband & I had the best experience at Innisfree this past weekend! The B&B was beautiful, peaceful & clean. Stephanie made us feel so welcome & at home during our stay. I have food allergies and she went out of her way both mornings to prepare a personalized breakfast for me. We will be visiting South Bend again and when we do, this is the only place where we plan to stay!

Innkeeper Response
