Chestnut House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Winona Lake B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 December 2014

Absolutely beautifully renovated home. We have stayed here numerous times and have NEVER been disappointed. Machelle is an awesome host, her breakfasts are amazing, she is a wealth of information regarding local sites, restaurants, etc. Honestly can't say enough good about this bed and breakfast and the caretakers! And lets not forget the village itself. Great place to wonder and explore. Fun stores, great eateries (you MUST try The Boathouse), bike trails and friendly, welcoming people throughout. Great for a little getaway weekend. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: There are only 4 rooms in the house and the hosts live in a little house next door. All the rooms a...

Given the comfort and quality of the facility, the location, and the service, travelers have absolutely no reason to stay in a hotel in nearby Warsaw, Indiana. If you can get a room in Chestnut House, take it! The personal service of the staff was exceptional--especially for the price.

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the two least-expensive rooms, the Cherry room. It was very comfortable for one...

We absolutely loved our time (altho short) at the Chestnut House B&B. Machelle was accommodating & welcoming. Our room was renovated which we loved and had its own bathroom - our suite was very nice, clean, cozy and it really was comfortable (it felt like home :). Perfect location to town, we were able to walk to the shops or to get a treat. Her breakfast in the morning was INCREDIBLE, Machelle was even accommodating with our strict food allergens. We were sad to leave, but cannot wait to come back and make this stop a tradition. Thanks Machelle!

Pros: Cute, historic house at the heart of Winona Lake. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Gracious and friendly hosts. Machelle makes an awesome egg casserole! She had no problem accommodating my dietary restrictions. Cons: You have to take your shoes off at the front door. Walls are pretty thin, so we could hear someone in the next room snoring.
Overall, a great experience. Definitely the best place to stay in Warsaw/Winona Lake!

Room Tip: Book early.

Amazing 4 days in such a well kept inn. Machelle was so sweet and let us sleep in until 9 for breakfast. Bed was so comfortable. Room was quiet and very clean. The built ins are so well made. Had hot coffee, tea, hot chocolate at all times.

The Chestnut House Bed and Breakfast is nice...nicer than the Waldorf-Astoria signature suite in NYC! Of course, the bed and breakfast is a bit more cozy. There are enough activities within walking distance for at least two days. Machelle's recommendations are very helpful. I did the walking trail for a nice evening trek after eating at the Boathouse Restaurant. The rooms are very well done and super clean. Everything is excellent and the breakfast is superb with plenty to eat. I especially enjoyed the jet-bath just before bed as a way to relax.

I spent two days at the bed and breakfast and I wish I could have stayed longer. If you are wanting a couples get away then this is a good place to stay. Personally, I came to get my Mustang modified and custom tuned at Brenspeed (Think performance engineering) which was about 12 miles away. If Brenspeed is your destination, then Chestnut House is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally nice. It is a matter if one has a wood trim preference (think color tones).

My husband and I stayed only one night...wish it could have been more. The B&B is exceptionally clean, well kept, comfortable. Fred and Machelle were the perfect hosts! And the breakfast was delicious.
