We take extra measures to ensure that our guesthouse is immaculate, and our guests have left their comments and appreciations. It's our promise to our guests.
Whether you are visiting for a couple of days or for an extended stay, our unique guesthouse will give you that "home away from home" while taking in all the sights and activities that Bloomington has to offer year round. Our guesthouse is located just 5 minutes from downtown Bloomington and 8 minutes from the IU campus. The house has been newly renovated and sits on an acre of land bordered by woods. You will have convenient access to Bloomington while enjoying a country setting. The entire house has been newly painted from floor to ceiling, and the hardwood floors have been carefully refinished. Each room has its own color scheme and attention has been paid to comfortable furnishings and decor.
The living room is furnished with lovely antiques, a beautiful Persian rug, large couch, and a big-screen TV. There are also various board games and a nice selection of books for your enjoyment.
The newly painted large country kitchen overlooks the acre of land and has brand new cabinets and flooring. It includes a wrought iron glass-topped table with chairs, full-sized stove and refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee makers, and toaster. It is well stocked with tableware and dishes, glassware and coffee mugs, along with cooking and baking pots and pans and utensils. There is also a pantry with paper goods, iron and ironing board and hair dryer.
The larger of the 2 bedrooms has a queen-sized bed with head and foot boards, antique dresser and chair, plus lamps, nightstands and a suitcase stand. The other bedroom has 2 twin beds, along with antique dresser, lamp, chair, and suitcase stand. Both bedrooms have quality brand new bedding, including fine-threaded sheets, new pillows, fluffy duvet, and quilted bedspreads.
The bathroom has been completely remodeled with all new tiling and tub with shower. A cabinet includes small individual bottles of shampoo, individual bars of soap, along with new toothbrushes -- all to be used and enjoyed during your stay. Towels are big and fuffy -- your own "spahhh"!
Outside, there is a front porch with a wrought iron table and 2 chairs, and in the back is a picnic area with metal table and chairs that look out upon the woods. There is also a large parking area.
Each party of guests is treated to our "starter pack" which includes a bottle of wine, another of sparkling water, freshly baked scones, and in the fridge you will cream. There is also a large selection of coffees and teas for your enjoyment.
There is a "House Manual" which includes information on aspects of the house and its electronics, house rules, along with plenty of recommendations on places to see, things to do, and local restaurants.
Guests will have access to the whole house (except the basement) via the front door along with a back door leading to the back yard. Entry through the front door is by way of a personal 4-digit code given to each guest prior to their arrival.
Please be aware that the owners may on occasion access the basement area through a separate entrance.
The owners do not live on site, but they are just a few minutes away should the need arise. They can be reached by phone, with numbers included in the "House Manual."
NO PETS-- to honor and protect others allergies.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING in the house. If you or someone in your group smokes outside, please be sure and dispose of cigarette butts, etc., by placing them in the trash can just off the parking area.
NO DRUGS, ANYWHERE, either inside or outside the house. It is the law.
We have made every effort to provide the most convenient and comfortable place possible, and appreciate guests treating it as their own home. If you are looking for a "party house," this is not that place. We rent to guests who truly appreciate the care and attention we have made to this house. We also enjoy renting the home to people from far and wide and will do whatever we can to make your Bloomington visit one to remember.
