Avanti House - gem in South Bend.
For an older house, very efficient. All rooms were super clean. The best part was its use of historic details to chronicle the time period of the Studebaker/Avanti connection. Little things, like the doorknobs, towel racks, wood molding, light fixtures, themed coverlets, framed pictures and articles on walls, even the sink skirts (!) added to the charm and character. Convenience to University of Notre Dame campus was a huge plus for me. Contact with owner was easy. She returned my texts/emails quickly while being friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at The Avanti House next time I am in South Bend area.
