Avoid the high priced lodging for events in South Bend and escape the hectic crowds after football games. Stay in Harbor Country (only 40 minutes from Notre Dame Stadium and just off I-94 on the way to or from Chicago). Enjoy a relaxing B&B after dining in the many local casual or more formal restaurants. It’s the right place for the Notre Dame faithful or for a group of supportive visiting fans. Book a two night stay in any of our Carriage House rooms or Suite by September 12th for one of the selected football weekends and get a FREE in-room one hour massage. November 15 Northwestern. November 22 Louisville.
