The SpaceWe have a room available for a single person or couple. We also have a finished basement with couches that could fit more people. Lots of room in the house to cook or relax in the entertainment room in the basement. Lovely back porch swing with a nice view of the farm. Fresh eggs daily from our chickens and vegetables from our hoop house. Close to campus on the east side, but far enough away from campus for a quiet retreat. Lake Lemon and Lake Griffy a short drive away. We don't have a pool, but we hope to have a pond next spring. We work at home and outside the home, so our schedules can fluctuate. We can give you some tips about getting around Bloomington and interesting places to go, even if we can't join you. There is a bus stop two miles from the house, which is bikeable during the day.

The SpaceThis is a bright and airy space with new furnishings and an open floor plan. One bedroom has a queen and one has two twin beds. The kitchen is furnished with pots and pans for any kind of cooking you want to do. Parking is just outside the front door and if you'd like access to bicycles, just let us know. You're renting the entire condo so use whatever you like. We live half a block away, one of us will meet you at check-in to make sure that you have everything you need or we can arrange to leave keys for you, but we're very accessible if you need anything. We won't impinge on your privacy, but we are happy to help with anything you need. Jeff has owned restaurants in town for more than 30 years and knows the dining and entertainment scene well. Nana is a fairly recent transplant from Shanxi China and can be available should you need transportation, housekeeping or cooking. She's a pretty amazing Chinese cook. If you need anything like this, let her know and she can discuss a price. Located in Prospect Hill, we think this is Bloomington's best neighborhood, an easy walk to everything. The Bloomington Convention Center is a two minute walk from your front door. A nice Kroger grocery and dozens of bars and restaurants are just a quick walk. The Wonderlab children's museum is 3 blocks away. We're close to everything but also on a very quiet tree lined street, very safe too. Our home is a half-block away and we rarely lock our front door. If you're doing downtown or university business you can easily get by without a car. Shuttles run regularly from Indianapolis airport for about $30 per person each way or you can arrange a taxi from a Bloomington taxi service for about $70 + tip. Either way, plan to set this up in advance. We can advise. The city bus terminal is about a 5 minute walk and you can walk to the center of the IU Campus in about 15 minutes, less by bike of course, and we're happy to arrange bikes for you if you let us know in advance. Flat screen Internet TV, high-speed internet. We keep the house stocked with the the local visitors guides, maps and other literature to make sure that you know about all the fun things there are to do in Bloomington.

The SpaceThe room-which is the nicest one in the house- has a queen sized bed, couch, Wi-fi, TV with no cable but has a Roku box with Netflix, desk and folding table. There is a local calls only phone in the room as well. You can arrange the furniture whatever way you like! There is also a large closet. The bed has down comforter and pillows although a regular quilt, down free pillows and blankets are available. All bed linens are 100% cotton. Sheets and towels are dried outside in the sun on the clothesline whenever as possible. The room has hardwood floors with no carpet and the acoustics are wonderful. The couch is large enough and comfortable enough to sleep on in case you need space for a third person or prefer not to share the bed with your companion. There is a private ½ bath there. The main bathroom downstairs (not part of a master suite) has an extra long claw foot tub and a 5 ft square walk- in shower with water jets and grab bars on the walls. This bath is shared. I have 2 friendly cats if you'd like some purr therapy. Musicians-especially folk and classical- and artists are quite welcome- in addition to everybody else! There is room enough for rehearsal space for unamplified music. The acoustics are wonderful! 11p.m is noise curfew time all over Bloomington. I’m also LGBT friendly and welcoming. Folks of all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds are welcome. Guest AccessYou are welcome to use the kitchen as long as you clean up after yourself. It is a well appointed enormous kitchen designed and owned by a cooking enthusiast. Washer and drier and clothesline are available. There can be space in the second fridge for you. There is coffee (real fresh ground) and tea available to you along with honey, ½ n ½ etc. There is a large dining room table in the kitchen that you may use to spread out your work if you care to use it. You will come in through the back door of the house and cross the kitchen to get to the upstairs. I sleep in the front of the house so you probably wouldn’t disturb me. You can park on the side street by my house or frequently in my driveway in the back. Interaction with GuestsI am a potter who works at home in a separate studio out in back of the house. I am home much of the time but frequently not in the house. We can interact as much or a little as you like. Of course I will greet you and give you the tour upon your arrival! The NeighborhoodI live on 1/6 acre 4 blocks from downtown Bloomington. There is a large church on one side and an old house that has 2 apartments on the other side. Since I heat with wood in addition to furnaces and have a moderate sized garden it is easy to pretend that I live in the country! It is a pleasant quiet neighborhood of older homes and apartments. It’s just 4 blocks from downtown, 1 mile from the western edge of campus and 3 blocks from the B-line walking/biking trail. I am 1 block from a bus line. I am 6-7 easy blocks from the Convention Center which is also the pick up/drop off point for the Airport Shuttle. There is a wonderful food co-op with restaurant 2 blocks away and other restaurants, bars, groceries, and performance venues very close by as well. Saturday mornings much of the year there is a fabulous farmers market just 3 blocks from here. Getting AroundThe house is 1 block from the city bus line, 4 blocks from the town square, 1 mile from campus, 6-7 easy blocks from the Convention Center which is also the airport Shuttle pick-up/drop off place, and 3 blocks from the taxi stand. Other Things to NoteVERY IMPORTANT!! I am very sensitive to perfumes, colognes, aftershaves, scented deodorants, fragrances most scents so PLEASE refrain from wearing,spraying or using them while you are here!

The SpaceEnjoy Bloomington and get a fantastic basement apartment all to yourself! This private apartment is a recent addition to my house, located in older suburban neighborhood with big beautiful trees! (Please note that since it is downstairs, you can sometimes hear the creaking of furniture, footsteps or faint voices from above. Also, I have 2 cats and a dog. They never go into the basement apartment, as the spaces are totally separate.) It is within walking or biking distance to campus, Kirkwood (the fun, trendy street with great shopping and restaurants), and Bryan Park (complete with lots of green space, and a big fancy pool). You can park in my driveway, and you are about a 5 minute walk from catching the Bloomington Transit anywhere you need to go. There is a common entry in the "mud room." You'll then head down a short flight of stairs to get to your apartment. The apartment has a very comfy Queen sized bed that can sleep two. There is a large walk-in closet, and also a smaller one. You'll have access to your own personal washer and dryer, and you're also welcome to borrow a bike. Feel free to hop onto my wireless internet. You can prepare all of your meals in your own kitchen! It comes complete with microwave, stove, pots, pans, dishes, and everything else you will need to cook with. There is a small dining table and a desk to do work on. Heck, there is even a dart board! You'll stay in a clean, colorful house with a gracious host who lives right upstairs, and who can direct you to all of the fun things Bloomington has to offer. Guest AccessYou will have access to a personal kitchen, bathroom, washing machine and dryer, and bedroom. You also have access to my wifi. Interaction with GuestsI always make every effort to meet guests to check them in on the first day of the stay. If check-in is very late, or I simply cannot get away from work to let you in, I will leave the key in a secure location for you to access when you arrive. The space is private, and guests may only ever see me if they happen to be exiting through the mud room at the same time as me. I like to respect people's privacy, so I won't be knocking on your doors unbidden, and will not be in your space as you occupy it unless there is an emergency, or you ask me to. However, I live right upstairs, and I am happy to respond to any questions or concerns as soon as I am able. Because I work long hours, the best method of contact is to text or call my cell phone. I will respond as soon as I am able, and always within a few hours. Other Things to NoteThe television is attached to a DVD player, and there is a small selection of DVD's to choose from. There is a Kroger with a Redbox where you can rent additional DVD's, within a 5 minute drive from the house. The television does not have cable access. Because the apartment is in the basement, and some sounds might travel into the apartment, I have provided a "white noise machine" in the bedroom that you can turn on if need be to help you sleep. If you use the stove, please make sure the range vent is on- the fire alarm is very sensitive, and can go off with routine cooking unless you have the vent on. On check-out, please slide the key through the mail slot on the front door (on Henderson Street), so that the key is secure inside of the home.

The SpaceThis space used to be the main dining room of a French café, still located downstairs, that has been in operation since 1979. After buying the auto bodyshop next door in the 80's and converting it into the current main dining room, the owners used the upstairs dining room for storage. The space has since been partitioned into a generous bedroom, a cozy office room, and a bathroom. There is no kitchen but you have your own microwave oven and mini-fridge. To get a better sense of the space, explore a (patchy) 360-degree photo of all three rooms here: bit(period)ly/1HcPZ7d Guest AccessIn addition to the private entrance, bedroom, bathroom, and office, guests will have access to the spacious rooftop deck, currently under renovation. Interaction with GuestsYour hosts are the owners of the restaurant-- an elderly French couple who spend their waking hours keeping the family business afloat. When they are not in the back cooking food or washing dishes, they are in the front taking orders and tending to customers. Guests are welcome downstairs any time! In addition, the owners are happy to prepare guests a complimentary breakfast the mornings of their stay. Just be sure to specify any dietary restrictions. The NeighborhoodThis Airbnb is located in the heart of downtown Bloomington, a block away from the square. It is within a 5-minute walk to most downtown destinations and is next door to Bloomingfoods, a local grocery market & deli co-op. It is flanked by the B-line, a rails-to-trails project peppered with joggers, strollers, and cyclists. If your stay is within April-November, you can enjoy the Bloomington farmers' market only two blocks away every Saturday morning. Getting AroundBoth Indianapolis airport shuttle companies have stops within a five-minute walk to the Airbnb. If you cozy up to the shuttle driver, they might even drop you off in front! For guests traveling by car, there is a private parking spot near the entrance. Other Things to NoteThere is WiFi, but the connection is very spotty, unfortunately. Sleeping arrangements are versatile. They include: 1. A permanent bed with full mattress (seen in photo) 2. One twin mattress that lives under the full bed (however, it would need to be placed on the floor) 3. A permanent couch with pull-out full mattress, which is not very comfortable at all. 4. A queen inflatable mattress (20in height) that can be readied upon request. The main sleeping surface is the full-sized mattress seen in the photo, which sleeps two. Additional guests have the option of either sleeping on a twin mattress (comfortable, but on the floor), an inflatable queen mattress (also comfortable, but on the floor), or on the pull-out couch (not comfortable, but off the floor). Depending on your background, this may qualify as "roughing it" ;) So just to be clear, while it's true that the space can technically accommodate four guests, this set up would be intended more for four intimate friends or parents with a couple kids. It would be an all-out sprawl, complete with two mattresses on the floor, an uncomfortable pull-out couch, and of course, the main full-sized bed seen in the photo.

Other Things to NoteOwner has a Mason & Hamlin Grand Piano upstairs for music school audition practices and warm ups. Bowman House is a licensed B&B with Monroe County and the State of Indiana and as such we are required to collect a 5% Innkeeper's tax and 7% IN Sales tax upon check-in by cash or check. Airbnb does not collect this so it is an additional charge that you must be agreeable to.

The SpaceMy house has a lovely view out of the large main room. I have a big yard. I am a 5 minute drive to both campus and to an extensive shopping area that includes a mall, many restaurants, 2 large groceries, a wonderful health food store, etc. I am a short walk from the YMCA. Lucky's, a delightful natural and organic grocery, recently opened at a site a 3 minute drive from my house. Guest Access On the first floor is a well appointed kitchen, a full bathroom, a bedroom with a full size bed and a large living/dining room. On the second floor is the master bedroom, with a queen size bed and a second bedroom, with a full size bed, with an attached full bathroom between the two bedrooms. Interaction with GuestsI will be home to welcome my guests and give them a tour of the house. Once I depart, guests will have the entire house to themselves. The NeighborhoodI live in a lovely upper middle class neighborhood full of trees and gardens. Getting AroundThere are 2 bus lines a short walking distance from my house. Bloomington is a small town, so taxi fares are not high. Other Things to NoteMy driveway is steep so following a snow storm it can be impassable. There are stairs with a handrail leading from the sidewalk to my front door. The reason I keep my listing inactive during the winter months, is due my concern that guests may not be able to drive up my driveway if there's been a snow storm. Because my driveway is steep, if your vehicle has a low under carriage, be cautious when driving up to my house.
