It is yours to enjoy! Guest AccessThe whole house is yours! We have restricted a couple rooms and closets for our cleaning and maintenance supplies, however. Interaction with GuestsThe place is all yours!! No need to duck away or worry about intrusion by residents! Your place, your way! The NeighborhoodRestaurants are walking distance away, and Notre Dame is either a reasonable stride, or a short ride, away. Getting AroundPark in our driveway! There's room for 5 cars! Property is a 2 minute walk to TRANSPO (the South Bend community bus line) too. That route takes you right by Notre Dame and St. Mary's College, or straight to downtown South Bend. The Cleveland House is walking distance from restaurants! We are just 6 miles from the Mishawaka Toll Road access/exit and just under 3 miles from University of Notre Dame (10 minutes by car!). Flying in? South Bend Regional Airport is just 5 miles away (11 minutes) and is home to the regional South Shore Train. The Amtrak station is located in Niles, just about 8 miles (17 minutes) away. Other Things to NoteNotre Dame is the biggest attraction of our community, with a beautiful campus and ivy-league architecture, top-tier sporting events and world class concerts. This college town is also home to Bethel College, St. Mary's College, Indiana University South Bend (IUSB) and Ivy Tech. But, don't discount the fun of Amish Acres' shows and the flea markets of Shipshewana, South Bend Chocolate Factory, and our own South Bend Cubs minor league baseball team! About 45 minutes away is New Buffalo, MI, where you can enjoy the entertainment at "Four Winds Casino Resort" and cap off the day with a beautiful sunset in Lake Michigan.

The Space6 bedrooms: 2 masters with private showers and 4 with half baths and a shared common shower. 11 twin beds and 1 double sleeps 13 people. We can set up a comfy air mattress to make it 14. Living room, dining room, and kitchen creates a great space for entertaining small events. Large backyard for cookouts and private parking around back. These rooms are also rented individually, and, as a result, the whole house may not be available. Please contact us well in advance to see if the entire house is available. On "event weekends" (e.g., ND home games), we will require a 2 night minimum rental. Renting multiple rooms in the house is also an option, but these details need to be negotiated by Airbnb message. Guest AccessGuests share a common living room, dining room and a well-equipped kitchen (electric skillet, countertop convection oven, microwave). The living room includes a flat panel TV with basic channels. Interaction with GuestsGuests should alert the caretaker by Airbnb message when they intend to arrive. Typically, Don or Micah/Jill will meet you and show you the house upon your arrival. It is possible, however, that nobody may be available to meet you upon your arrival (especially if you arrive very late or over a holiday). In that case, we will work out the details of your arrival beforehand. Guests will be given relevant pass codes and keys. Otherwise, you have as much privacy or interaction as you wish. Although we love meeting new people, sometimes guests come and go little or no interaction with us because of their plans. Whatever you need is OK with us! The NeighborhoodThe Museum District / West Washington neighborhood is a racially diverse, historic neighborhood. Some South Bend folks remember this area as the 'bad part' of town, and years ago that was probably the case. However, the City of South Bend has been systematically restoring its neighborhoods, and a special focus has been put on the Museum District because of its heritage and the fairly recent relocation of the Studebaker National Museum to its heart. Like much of South Bend, some areas in our neighborhood still badly need restoration, but other parts--like Washington and Colfax--are idyllic for walks, lined with gorgeous homes. The streets can be a little dark at night but generally safe if you take care. Also like most areas, the occasional crime of opportunity does happen, so stowing valuables where they can't be seen is just good sense. For your added safety and security, we have video cameras trained outside the home and in common areas inside as well. We're right across the street from the nationally acclaimed Studebaker Museum and The History Museum, located in the Oliver Mansion, a 38-room Victorian house where the J.D. Oliver family once lived. We highly recommend strolling downtown via Washington (past the K. C. DeRhodes House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and Tippecanoe Place, Clem Studebaker's historic mansion and restaurant) and walking back Colfax, past the home of Schuyler Colfax (Vice President under Grant). Also down Washington is the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture and IUSB's Civil Rights Heritage Center. Getting AroundThe museum district is very walkable with downtown only 10 minutes away. Bicycle access around town is quick and easy, with some streets having dedicated bike lanes. The town also has a bus system (SB Transpo) and buses run near the house every 30 minutes (on Western Ave). We are located 2.8 miles from Notre Dame, and a short drive to the SBN (regional airport and bus depot). Give yourself about 15 minutes to Notre Dame by car; parking on campus can also be difficult, so cabs/Uber or the bus system can provide convenient alternatives. Uber is available in South Bend (though it doesn't go to the airport!), as are cabs. Other Things to Note- ND Football and other event weekends (e.g., graduation): We ask that guests book a 2 night minimum. - Long-term stays: if you are interested in staying for a week or more, please message us for details. We have had guests stay in the past for up to 3 months. Our kitchen is also equipped to prepare small meals. We are located 2.8 miles from Notre Dame, a five minute walk to a gym/pool, and a 10 minute walk to Silverhawks minor league baseball stadium. There is also a laundromat and discount grocery across the street.

The office/third bedroom has an internet-connected computer with a 27 inch display, and wifi is available as well. The neighborhood is full of historic homes, many of which are restored or are in the process of being restored. It had its bad days in the 70s and 80s and has recovered. It's an active community which holds several annual events (And the neighborhood association is right next door). The art festival sometimes falls on the same weekend as a football game, so be sure to check that out if you're there the same weekend :) There's a grocery store, a drug store, and several restaurants a few blocks away (Jan Marie's Portage Avenue Cafe is a great breakfast spot). I make sure there's propane for the grill, and usually stock the fridge with beer, hot dogs, and burgers, along with buns, condiments, coffee and soda. Come stay with us -- you won't regret it. :) Guest AccessWe'd prefer it if our guests avoided the attic and the basement, and any closets or drawers tagged private, but other than that, you'll have the run of the house, including reasonable use of the liquor cabinet Interaction with GuestsWe'll be enjoying a relaxing weekend in Michigan during your stay -- out of your hair, but less than an hour's drive away if anything comes up. The keys will be in a keybox, with the code provided to you in advance. The NeighborhoodNote: This text is shamelessly borrowed from our neighborhood association's website. This charming neighborhood is incredibly varied with tree lined avenues, historic homes and a rich full history. We have Victorians from the 1880’s, Bungalows from the 1920’s and American Four Squares at every turn. The neighborhood has four historic districts, each one featuring homes of different genres and architectural styles. We have historic Leeper Park with scenic views of the St. Joseph River, a jungle gym, tennis center and perfect picnic spots. Portage Avenue features a grocery store, pharmacy and hardware store just a short distance from your home away from home. The Near Northwest is at the edge of bustling downtown South Bend; its restaurants, museums and cultural life are just steps away. And we are just minutes from the University of Notre Dame, Holy Cross, St. Mary’s, IU South Bend and Ivy Tech with all of their educational opportunities, sporting events and additional cultural events. The Near Northwest has one of the most active neighborhood organizations in the City. It features a yearly art festival, garden walk, summer cook outs and much more. The numerous events are a perfect place to meet the neighbors and make new friends. Our many volunteers are committed to our projects both civic and social. You will love this neighborhood – come stay with us! Getting AroundThere is ample parking. Our driveway can hold 3 cars, and there are room for something like 50 more cars in the 2 neighborhood association lots. There's a bus stop near by, but as of the last time we reviewed the routes, we wouldn't recommend taking it to Notre Dame - it goes in the wrong direction, and you'd have to change buses at least twice to get to one that heads to campus. South Bend is not a particularly walkable city, and aside from a few at the airport, taxis must be called for in advance. We recommend renting a car, unless you're fit and planning to walk from our house to the stadium and back, in which case, a taxi to and from the airport would suffice. Other Things to NoteAre you looking to visit at a time when we're not listed as available? Feel free to contact us -- we may be willing to open up the house to match your schedule. We need to get updated interior photos. These were taken in 2011, and since then, we've gotten married, cohabited, switched some furniture around, and generally redecorated a bit. The living/sitting/dining rooms are a bit less empty and a bit more welcoming now. I added a panorama shot a photographer took when we were featured in the local art festival last year -- that shows a more updated view, albeit full of people who happened to be touring it at the time :)

The SpaceWe include breakfast! 20 minutes from Notre Dame, St Mary's, Holy Cross and Bethel Colleges and 10 minutes from the St Joseph county fairgrounds. Whether you are coming to bring a student or for a football game we are just 5 minutes from the US 31/US20 exit -you can reach us easily without a lot of in-town driving if you choose. Since we are south of the campus you avoid a lot of the post game traffic, most of which heads north. The room has an attached private bathroom and has a queen bed. Built on a knoll, we took advantage of the natural terrain and left most of our lot untouched when we built our house -a friend even told us " I feel as if I am in a tree house when I visit you!" We have a pond and you will probably see deer when you visit, too. You will feel as if you are far from the city hubbub, but actually be close enough to take advantage of all of the opportunities. There is a large shopping center within a 5 minute drive, along with a number of 24 hour businesses: restaurants, grocery stores and gas stations. Nearby restaurants include: BW3, Applebee's, Pizza Hut, Texas Roadhouse, Logan's, Culver's, Steak and Shake and many local restaurants, all only 5 minutes away. We have some amazing 18 hole golf courses, including a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course, within easy driving distance as well as a par 3- 9 hole course. . The Studebaker Museum is only 10 minutes away. And of course Lake Michigan with sandy beaches, fishing charters, boat launches and the Dunes National Lakeshore is less than 45 minutes from us. Guest AccessWe have whole house wi-fi. Room has a TV with OTA channels. Interaction with GuestsWe are in the house the entire time that you are staying with us. We love to interact with our guests and make new friends! Other Things to NoteThis room is on the second floor so there are steps to climb. The room has toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo and hairdryer- all you need to bring is your comb and your clothes! We have no pets of any kind and do not smoke.

The SpaceHobbit House is somewhat of a local landmark. It was built in 1929 by a Polish contractor who advertised it as "The House Without Corners" because of its coved ceilings, rounded corners and unusual "rolled" roof---all of which make it reminiscent of an English cottage. Nevertheless architecturally it is classified as a bungalow and has made an appearance in American Bungalow Magazine. In 1930 the newly constructed house was sold to George Keegan, the Notre Dame basketball coach at the time. George went on to win the National Championship in 1936 and after he died, his widow remarried Aaron Huguenard, a prominent local attorney who later became president of the Indiana Bar. Over the years it has continued to be a much loved home filled with books, art and antiques---an ideal venue for parties both indoors and out---or simply reading and being at peace Located across the street from a bus stop to downtown it is an easy bike ride along the River Walk to Notre Dame and Saint Mary's. It is also in close proximity to the airport and South Shore train/Coach bus line to Chicago. Owner/host has lived in South Bend for over fifteen years and is full of ideas and suggestions about where to eat, shop and go in the greater area including the lovely shore towns along Lake Michigan.

The house has four floors, including a finished basement/media room with a projector and 13-foot screen, and a 4th-floor sunroom with 55-inch flat screen TV, wet bar, and two large decks -- one overlooking the river with, very literally, the best views in town!

The Avanti Museum and Guest House (like B&B without a breakfast) operates 6 private bedrooms, each with either a private full bath or half bath. All guests have access to full shower in shared bathroom as well. The entire house may be available for rental. Please contact us to discuss options or see our full Avanti House listing. Guest Access- ND Football and other event weekends (e.g., graduation): We ask that guests book a 2 night minimum. - Long-term stays: if you are interested in staying for a week or more, please message us for details. We have had guests stay in the past for up to 3 months. Our kitchen is also equipped to prepare small meals. We are located 2.8 miles from Notre Dame, a five minute walk to a gym/pool, and a 10 minute walk to Silverhawks minor league baseball stadium. There is also a laundromat and discount grocery across the street. Interaction with GuestsGuests should alert the caretaker by Airbnb message when they intend to arrive. Typically, Don or Micah/Jill will meet you and show you the house upon your arrival. It is possible, however, that nobody may be available to meet you upon your arrival (especially if you arrive very late or over a holiday). In that case, we will work out the details of your arrival beforehand. Guests will be given relevant pass codes and keys. Otherwise, you have as much privacy or interaction as you wish. Although we love meeting new people, sometimes guests come and go little or no interaction with us because of their plans. Whatever you need is OK with us! The NeighborhoodThe Museum District / West Washington neighborhood is a racially diverse, historic neighborhood. Some South Bend folks remember this area as the 'bad part' of town, and years ago that was probably the case. However, the City of South Bend has been systematically restoring its neighborhoods, and a special focus has been put on the Museum District because of its heritage and the fairly recent relocation of the Studebaker National Museum to its heart. Like much of South Bend, some areas in our neighborhood still badly need restoration, but other parts--like Washington and Colfax--are idyllic for walks, lined with gorgeous homes. The streets can be a little dark at night but generally safe if you take care. Also like most areas, the occasional crime of opportunity does happen, so stowing valuables where they can't be seen is just good sense. For your added safety and security, we have video cameras trained outside the home and in common areas inside as well. We're right across the street from the nationally acclaimed Studebaker Museum and The History Museum, located in the Oliver Mansion, a 38-room Victorian house where the J.D. Oliver family once lived. We highly recommend strolling downtown via Washington (past the K. C. DeRhodes House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and Tippecanoe Place, Clem Studebaker's historic mansion and restaurant) and walking back Colfax, past the home of Schuyler Colfax (Vice President under Grant). Also down Washington is the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture and IUSB's Civil Rights Heritage Center. Getting AroundThe museum district is very walkable with downtown only 10 minutes away. Bicycle access around town is quick and easy, with some streets having dedicated bike lanes. The town also has a bus system (SB Transpo) and buses run near the house every 30 minutes (on Western Ave). We are located 2.8 miles from Notre Dame, and a short drive to the SBN (regional airport and bus depot). Give yourself about 15 minutes to Notre Dame by car; parking on campus can also be difficult, so cabs/Uber or the bus system can provide convenient alternatives. Uber is available in South Bend (though it doesn't go to the airport!), as are cabs. Other Things to Note- Notre Dame Football and other event weekends (e.g., graduation): We ask that guests book a 2 night minimum. - We are a few blocks north of a train; most people sleep fine with it, but for lighter sleepers we stock each room with disposable ear plugs. - Long-term stays: if you are interested in staying for a week or more, please message us for details.

The SpaceHavas Haz is a sweet little mid century house located right next door to its big brother Arts and Crafts neighbor, Hobbit House. Havas Haz or Snowy Cottage in Hungarian was named in deference to the Hungarian-American fireman and his wife who built it in 1950. It is furnished in a clean lean somewhat tongue-in-cheek retro manner with hardwood floors and original local art. The garage has been restored to its original Dutch Lap wooden siding and the yard entirely relandscaped. The operative descriptors are peaceful, light-filled (even in overcast South Bend winters), intelligent and whimsical. Havas is across the street from a bus stop to downtown and an easy bike ride along the River Walk to Notre Dame and Saint Mary's College. It is also in close proximity to the airport and South Shore train/Coach bus line to Chicago. Owner/host has lived in South Bend for over fifteen years and is full of ideas and suggestions about where to eat, shop and go in the greater area including the lovely shore towns along Lake Michigan some of which are only a half an hour away. Interaction with GuestsI will interact with guest to the degree they do or do not want. I will drive them to locations if they like, advise them on local restaurants and shopping, again if they like, or leave them entirely alone. The NeighborhoodThe best thing about my neighborhood in the River Walk--a walking/biking trail along the St.Joseph river. Technically one can walk or bike all the way to Notre Dame albeit it is about 3.5 miles. Getting AroundIf I'm available, I'm wiling to drive football guests up to campus and drop them off.

The SpaceThis is game-day convenience for just a few or a whole group! You'll have plenty of space for sleeping & bathing and even more for your common gatherings. The dining area opens onto the back patio, and there's lots of sitting space upstairs and down. Parking is plentiful, so leave your car in the driveway and walk to the game! You'll also have easy access to the grocery stores and Eddy Street Commons, but without the noise! Guest AccessYou'll have access to everything but the garage. Make yourself at home in the kitchen. Relax in front of the TV. Enjoy the back patio area! Interaction with GuestsWe plan to let you have the place to yourselves. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is close to Notre Dame's campus, but feels secluded because of the wide streets and old trees. Our house is particularly quiet. It sits on a corner lot off the street and faces south for nice sunshine through the living room windows. You also get great morning light into the dining area! Getting AroundForget paying game day parking: You can easily walk to the ND stadium from our place on game days. Eddy Street Commons--great restaurants and shops!--is a longish walk or short drive. Get all your groceries at Martin's up the way (about a mile). Gas for the grill is a walk to the gas station just north of the neighborhood. And the best frozen yogurt in South Bend? Also just a couple blocks away!
