I was in the area doing work and couldn't find a hotel to stay in. So I took a chance and stayed at a bed and breakfast for the first time. I have to say, I was very impressed. The rooms were clean and very well laid out. It really was like stepping back in time. I would definitely stay there again.
Just had to write a review about Country Flair Bed and Breakfast because of the wonderful people. Julie and Glen made us feel so welcome from the moment we entered their home. They have such nice grandchildren that help with serving the breakfast too. We stayed for three nights with my sister and brother -in-law and had the downstairs suite which was so lovely with the gas fireplace. The breakfast were outstanding and the evening desserts were so delicious too! We even went to the twins ball game which we truly enjoyed. Thank you with all of our hearts. I hope we can return one day.as you are very special people. Take Care, Nancy & Ron Knapwurst
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful B&B May 9th thru the May 10th. Amanda greets you at the door when you first come in. The manor is so beautiful and after you check in, she shows you around. Amanda goes over what to expect if you come back and the manor is locked up, what the password is for Wifi, and places to eat that are local. I was very surprised how quiet the area and home are. We received homemade cookies in the evening that were perfect for our gluten-free diet. I did not sleep well, but that is because I don't sleep well in other places besides my own bed. But again, even at night, the manor is very quiet. Amanda has three beautiful, friendly children that greeted us at breakfast. We had requested a gluten-free breakfast, and Amanda made a great egg and ham casserole that was a very large portion, along with fresh fruit. There was also coffee, tea, water, and OJ. We sat in the large dining room with the other guest and chatted with Amanda, her children and the other guests. I have never been to a bed and breakfast before, so this was a fabulous way to start the day. We will definitely plan on coming back. We stayed in the Rose room, and would like to try the other rooms too, as they were set up differently and offer different views of the town. Thank you Amanda and family for a wonderful stay!
I needed a place to stay while doing work in the area. First time guest at Country Flair; won't be the last visit. Excellent hospitality. Great room. Biscuits and gravy was tasty! Wonderful conversations with Glenn and Julie. The Christmas decor right now is well done. Overall experience was five stars! You want to spend some time with people who love the Lord, this is the place to go!
The Country Flair B&B is amazing !!! The home is beautiful !!! The Indiana country view is stunning - especially in the fall !!! The morning breakfasts and homemade desserts were absolutely delicious !!! Glen and Julie are very gracious and super friendly !!! They are the best - as well as their grandchildren !!! Our next trip to South Bend will definitely have us spending another evening and morning with the Hostetler family !!! Thank you Glen and Julie for your wonderful hospitality. Cindy & Tom
Really lovely stay! The hosts Julie and Glen were welcoming and helpful. The room was very comfortable and their home is lovely. Breakfast and dessert in the evening were delicious. Would totally recommend their bed and breakfast. Kate and Kev, UK.
I spent two nights in the Rose room. The room and bathroom were very clean and very roomy. Amanda was a wonderful hostess. She is very friendly, warm and gracious. The breakfasts were delicious.
What a wonderful way to introduce our 2 grand-daughters to their first Bed and Breakfast stay. Having been here before we knew what a great choice Country Fair is. Clean, comfortable, spacious, and friendly. And economical, where else can you get 1500 square feet with 2 separate king bedrooms, large family/living room with a separate reading area and a full kitchen. Whenever we are in the area we will always stay here.
Great food and hospitality Beds very comfortable Rates very reasonable Suite is huge but bathroom is very small and shower stall needs a safety rail as floor is slippery Great to have a kitchen to ourselves. Appreciated all of the snacks, drinks and homemade cookies and dessert!!
Our two-night stay in Ligonier, Indiana was a delight thanks to the folks at Solomon Mier Manor. The beautiful home of the 1890s is part of an interesting history that comes to life in the people who see to all your needs and become friends. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean and bright in our Abraham room and bath. All expected modern services - internet, cable TV, etc.- worked well. Breakfasts were tasty with good variety for both days of our stay. A special treat was the availability of cookies each evening. We loved spending our time at the Solomon Mier Manor and highly recommend it to others.
First, the property owners Glen and Julie were great. They were easy and fun to talk to. They were very accommodating with any needs we had. The rooms are very clean, spacious, and have everything you need. We had the entire downstairs with full kitchen and private bathroom! It was great. We will definitely be back next year for Notre Dame football and just a break from daily routines. The breakfast and the homemade desserts in the evening were also great! Overall a great experience!
We use Country Flair for our company retreats. They accomodate by letting us show up at 8am and stay the entire next day. We use the whole basement to rock our work out. The breakfasts are wonderful everytime! We love Country Flair and will definitely return for our next retreat!
Had the good fortune of staying at Country Flair while visiting for a Notre Dame football game. What a treasure this place is! The owners, Julie and Glen, could not be kinder nor more hospitable. And, their three adorable grandchildren - Tanner, Ella and Madison -- are delightfully bright and more industrious than adults three times their age. The home is warm, inviting, beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. Since our stay was rather brief we chose the Shabby Chic room and it was perfect for our needs. We did get an opportunity to see the other rooms as well, and those are equally as nice. (The spacious basement suite is really quite amazing and would be perfect for a family or small group of friends.) Not to be overlooked is the elegant and seasonally decorated dining room in which they serve an outstanding breakfast each morning. Truly a culinary delight! Our schedule meant that we missed out on the evening desserts, but from what were told by the other guests, those were a real treat in every sense of the word. This is the kind of place that you ALMOST want to keep as your own little secret because of the value. But, at the same time, you really can't stop gushing about it. Others should have the opportunity to experience this little country oasis. Without question, we will be back!
This B&B is incredible. The owners, Julie and Glen, are lovely people. I was in South Bend, IN for a week on business. It was a very hectic time. Coming back to the peace and quiet of this beautiful B&B after a hard day was so comforting. I stayed in the Old World Modern Suite, which is actually an apartment. There was a bedroom with a king size bed, private bathroom, fully furnished living room and kitchen. If I had needed it, a separate king size sofa bed and a king size inflatable bed on frame were also offered. Since I was by myself, I didn't require the extra beds. There was a pool, and the property itself was well-kept and beautifully landscaped. I didn't have time in the morning for breakfast, but Julie always made a lovely dessert in the evening. I did have time for breakfast on Sunday because I was departing that morning. The breakfast was delicious and included homemade muffins and the full complement of breakfast items. I will return again when my business takes me to South Bend, which is only 25 minutes from away. It's worth the extra drive time. This B&B would be especially nice when visiting for the purpose of attending Notre Dame games.
This place is a gem in Wakarusa that you wouldn't necessarily expect. Happened to find it online when doing a search for places to stay near the Amish areas of Indiana. We wanted a place that would work out (and be fun) with kids since we were having a mini-family getaway. It was EXACTLY what the doctor ordered! The grounds are beautiful. The home is beautiful. The suite we stayed in was a-mazing and PERFECT for a family. Attention to details and needs while away from home was superb. (They even had a closet in our suite with some kids' toys for my son!) Julie and Glen made us feel very welcomed and relaxed (and were helpful in suggesting places to eat in town for dinner--and we even could ride our bikes there!) and Tanner, Ella and Mady (I hope I spelled those correctly. ;) ) were GREAT helping the next morning with breakfast. What a wonderful team!! We definitely plan on returning, as this place was absolutely wonderful for a quick/peaceful family getaway that is perfectly situated near "touristy" locations like Shipshewana and Napannee. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
We have stayed at Country Flair twice now - and have been nothing but extremely pleased! The service is phenomenal! It is exceedingly clean (and I am a "clean freak"). The breakfasts are wonderful - better than what you'll get at a fancy restaurant. Just a short drive to the ND campus! We plan to schedule our next visit as soon as we get our football tickets!
Breakfast was amazing! I cannot stress that enough! I was told by friends how good the food was but was still amazed by the quality of the home cooked meals. The innkeepers were accomidating and very personable.
Can't say enough. This is a very peaceful beautiful environment. We were only able to spend one night but look forward to returning when the weather is nice. Sorry that we didn't get to meet the rest of the staff (Tanner, Madison, & Ella) We heard about them and look forward to meeting them next time. Our room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Our evening dessert was warm homemade carrot cake and ice cream.....Yum! Breakfast was filling & delicious. Julies homemade muffins are awesome!!! Our hosts were very gracious. I would recommend this Bed & Breakfast to everyone. Glen & Julie are the sweetest people.. Can't say enough.
The hosts are always very welcoming as friendly. The home is neat and clean and the rooms nicely decorated. Just about any little thing you might need has been thoughtfully provided. I've stayed there at least 3 times and always enjoy the large spread they do for breakfast-fresh fruit, warm egg dish, baked oatmeal, pastries and a large assortment of coffees, teas and cocoas anytime. Wonderful!
