“Definitely a return stay planned....”
Reviewed 28 July 2008

We booked the entire B & B for the weekend of my daughters wedding which was at the Basilica of Notre Dame - and the reception was at Tippecanoe. The propietor was kind and flexible throughout our stay. The bathrooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable!! Great night's sleep. It's decorated beautifully...One draw back would be for the elderly as there is not an elevator and the bedrooms are on the second floor, but otherwise a wonderful place!

We booked the entire inn for a family wedding and reunion in South Bend. The proprietor, Cindy Lewis, was wonderfully flexible in adapting to our needs and gave us free run of the inn, including the kitchen for the weekend. Cindy was very welcoming but never obtrusive. We all enjoying chatting with her and learning the history of the inn as well as other information about South Bend. The inn is walking distance from downtown and a number of good restaurants and neighborhood bars (with live music and games).

The pictures do not do the inn justice. The three parlors and two dining rooms downstairs are full of original woodwork and provided a very comfortable setting for small groups to chat and larger groups to play games in the evening. The backyard also includes nice plantings and comfortable sitting areas. All of the bedrooms were very comfortable and attractive. We found that shared bathrooms worked just fine, especially for a family setting. All in all a wonderful experience!

We just got back from a weekend stay at the lovely Innisfree Bed and Breakfast. Cindy welcomed us with open arms into their (Cindy and Terry's) beautiful home. The house was built in 1892 from what I recall and has only had 3 owners. It surely shows how well kept and loved this home has been and still is.
The garden in the back is peaceful, and pretty.
We plan on returning many times to relax and enjoy the good food, beauty and especially one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in.

Enjoy the pictures we have attached.

Thanks again Lewis Family!

On a scale of 1 to 10, this place is a 10+. This is our 3rd stay at Innisfree and we are more impressed with each passing stay. The hosts could not be more friendly and acccomodating. They keep making more and more improvements on what was initially a beautiful place to stay. On our first visit, it was difficult to take a shower in the old style tubs in the rooms, but I'm happy to say that all the tubs have been retrofitted to take nice new style showers. Anyone who travels to South Bend and doesn't stay at Innisfree is missing out on a special place & special people. Can't wait to go back.

Our stay was perfect from the beginning to the end! My husband and I went down to South Bend for a Notre Dame football game and decided to stay at a B&B instead of a regular hotel for a change of pace. Staying at Innisfree was the best decision! Innisfree is a gorgeous B&B with the perfect balance of old world charm and modern day necessities. It was only a short car ride to the football game and only a quick walk later to some great restaurants. We loved the complimentary breakfasts. Did I mention, Innisfree was immaculately clean and well-kept. We both highly recommend Innisfree and hope to return very soon.

  • Liked — The atmosphere of Innisfree - warm, inviting, charming
  • Disliked — We had to go home.
