The Oliver Inn

This lovely Victorian 25 room mansion was built for entertaining. The lower level contains a dining room with original Waterford crystal sconces and a butler's pantry with complimentary refreshments. Also available is a large and cozy library with one of eleven fireplaces, and a baby grand piano with computerized piano disk system. Guests may choose from one of nine large and beautifully decorated guest rooms, some with fireplaces, private balcony, claw foot tubs, marble sinks or Jacuzzi, all but two with private baths. Lovely landscaped one acre estate with lawn swings, gardens, gazebo and fountains. The Bavarian style Carriage House is an architectural gem, totally unique to the area and has been renovated into an 800 square foot second floor suite with two bedrooms, two baths (one with a jetted shower and one with a two-person jacuuzi tub) kitchen, living room, and screened-in veranda. Your stay at The Oliver Inn always includes a full hot breakfast each morning, and complimentary snacks and soft drinks in our butlers' pantry 24 hours a day. Each of our rooms have air conditioning, ceiling fans, soft comfortable robes, deluxe bath amenities, Cable TV, hair dryers, clock radio w/CD player, and ambient sound machines.  DVD players are also available, and free high-speed wireless internet is available to all guests, and is accessible throughout this one-acre estate. We have gift certificates available in any amount, or for one of our packages. The most popular package is 3 Mansions in 1 Trip which includes dinner at the Studebaker Mansion (Tippecanoe Place) right next door.
