Perfect place for ND Football Weekends

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Winding Waters with my 3 sons for an ND football weekend. It was fantastic! Carl and Lori are incredible hosts and their house is immaculate. We were extremely comfortable in their house and Carl and Lori did everything they could do help us the entire weekend. The beds are comfortable, the house is in a great location and the breakfast was awesome.

We will definitely be staying there again for future trips to ND.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't find a better place to stay for our 1st trip to South Bend/Notre Dame! The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. An amazing breakfast to start both of our days. It was Southern hospitality in Northern Indiana!

A great place to stay for a Notre Dame football weekend

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations here are excellent. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms spotless. My wife and I stayed here with our teenage son and his friend while visiting for a game. The drive to and from South Bend on the toll road is only 20 minutes and is well worth it to avoid the noise and congestion around the stadium. The breakfast is outstanding and makes the whole weekend a very good value compared to the hotels. Karl and Lori are wonderful hosts. We will definitely return.

A Wonderful Couple and A Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience.... My husband, 2 children, mom and sister spent a memorable weekend at this bed and breakfast. We wanted our children to stay in a bed and breakfast instead of a hotel just for them to experience something different. Well they loved it. My son turned to me at church this week and said weren't' those the nicest people last weekend I sure hope we can go back. This bed breakfast has every detail covered - chocolates next to your bed, beautiful quiet setting, travel bag when you leave, and such a wonderful blessing on Sunday morning. We hope to be back next year if get up to Notre Dame and if they room. Thank you for making our trip such a wonderful memory for our entire family.

Fabulous Experience at Winding Waters!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Winding Waters B&B for my graduation from the University of Notre Dame, and we had a wonderful experience! Lori and Carl made us feel so at home and took such good care of us. The home is lovely, set on an acre with woodlands, a stream (try out their canoe!), and a beautiful deck for enjoying the setting. Our family got to enjoy being together and visiting in a way we could not have had we been staying in a hotel. And the breakfasts are superb! As are the afternoon snacks, and the dinner Lori and Carl fixed for us. They helped us celebrate my Notre Dame accomplishment and made me feel very special. At the same time, they did not intrude on our family time. Their home is so pleasant, and the amenities abundant, with fresh towels, robes, coffee ready to go upstairs in the morning, the use of their canoe.... and they have a fire pit for family campfires! They made my graduation special for all of us!

Beautiful home, amazing breakfasts, clean, comfortable. Lori and Carl made us feel incredibly welcome. We would definitely visit again. We needed a place to stay for the USC Notre Dame game and everything was booked locally. We found this on and were pleasantly surprised with how well it worked out. We stayed with our 2 teenage kids and they thought it was great. Our son watched football on Sunday in their lower level with spiced cider and a candy corn mix that Lori and Carl provided. This was a great find and was easy to get to and from the university-just have to keep in mind there is a toll road you have to go through when going back and forth, but we got an "EZ Pass" when we rented our car so that made it easy. A great alternative when you're looking for a home away from home.
