Built in the late 1800s, this historic mansion has been under the ownership of many hands over the years. Around 1987, it was donated to the Northern Indiana Historical Society. Known as The Oliver Inn since 2005, it is now owned by a local couple living their dream.

There is a dining room where guests will enjoy a hot, fresh breakfast each morning. This inn regularly makes French toast, pancakes, quiche, strudels, cinnamon rolls, and more. There is always fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and tea available.
There are about 10 guestrooms in total, most of which have private baths and televisions. Room rates start at $140 and can go as high as $339 per night for the top-level room.
Some rooms also have Jacuzzi tubs, walk-in showers, clawfoot tubs, fireplaces, private porches, and king or queen sized beds. Make your stay extra special with romantic dinner packages, chocolate, rose petals, and more.
Don't forget to make time to explore the ground of this historic mansion. The Oliver Inn has immaculately manicured gardens that include a fountain, benches, flowers, and other whimsical features.
This inn is situated in the very north region of the state, in the center of town, not far from the St. Joseph River. Nearby attractions include wineries, museums, historic restaurants, sporting events, and many other adventurous activities.
