Über dieses Inserat

Welcome to my huge sunny very private guest room w private 1/2 bath. It's up easy stairs over the new large kitchen addition on the back of my 112 year old house. It's 4 blocks from downtown Bloomington, Indiana and 1 mile from the western edge of the Indiana University campus. 2 friendly cats live here but they are not allowed in the guest room. VERY IMPORTANT!! NO FRAGRANCES PLEASE !!

Die Unterkunft

The 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 that has a small ironing board and iron stashed away. 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 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 in my home.

Zugang für Gäste

You 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.

Interaktion mit Gästen

I 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!

Although we were only in Bloomington for one night, Barb helped make it a wonderful and memorable trip! As soon as my boyfriend and I arrived, she greeted us and showed us around the house. She has lived in Bloomington for a long time and was happy to recommend restaurants and activities for us to do while in town. Barb's house is easy to find and within walking distance to downtown and the IU campus. Everything about the room was just as she described - it was clean, spacious, bright, and private. She kindly provided snacks (which were nice after a long car ride), coffee in the morning, and space in her refrigerator. The downstairs shower was incredible! It was roomy, relaxing, and was comprised of multiple jets that hit your body from different angles. I was pleasantly surprised when her two cats (who are very sweet and friendly) wanted to keep me company while I showered. We would absolutely stay with Barb again.

My wife and I were passing through Bloomington on our way to the Derby. Great, comfortable room very close to downtown. Barb is a gracious, considerate host and we definitely would stay again. My wife and I highly recommend.

I enjoyed my stay at Barb's a lot. Barb is so nice and helpful. She has lots of stories to tell and we had wonderful time talking with Barb. Definitely the place I will choose if I visit Bloomington next time.

Barb has a beautiful and spacious guest room, overlooking a wonderful vegetable garden. It was an incredibly restful space, and she was a friendly and welcoming host. Her two cats were also fantastic - and when my cat allergies started to flare up after greeting them, I felt completely fine in the clean, cat-free upstairs. The guest room has its own sofa and desk, and immediately felt like home while we were in Bloomington.

My stay at Barb's couldn't have been more perfect. The bed is super comfortable and all that natural-fiber bedding made the night sweet. The space is very roomy and fresh with birdsong in the morning and garden out the window. It doesn't seem at all that this lovely place is only a short walk from downtown Bloomington. Barb went out of her way to communicate with me - even used text, phone and email to be sure I had all the information I needed to check-in in her absence. She thought of everything I needed and made me most comfortable and welcome. She even went the extra mile and helped me with research suggestions for the book I'm writing. Her pottery studio out back is thriving and I love the pieces I bought (even though I didn't have extra room in my suitcase, I just couldn't resist bringing a few pieces home!) The giant shower with 4 shower heads is by far the roomiest shower I've ever encountered, plus there is a footed bathtub to enjoy. The whole place has a very homey, colorful and comfortable feel. I felt immediately at home. It's a short and enjoyable walk downtown to restaurants, sights, IU, library, etc. A great neighborhood! Barb is very friendly and welcoming, but gives you all the space you need. A great balance of helpfulness and respect for privacy. I especially appreciated the clean fresh environment free of fragrances and odors. Please remember not to use fragrances during your stay, as requested. You will have a pleasant stay here - book with confidence! Maggie

Barb was a great host. The room was big, sunny and comfortable. The coffee wasn't bad, either.

Nutzerprofil von Barb

I have lived in Bloomington for 44 years! I am a well established artist in the community who is fortunate enough to have her studio right out the back door. I make functional pottery-mugs, dinnerware, earring holders, oil lamps and more. 5 years ago I put a huge kitchen addition of the back of the house and added the room upstairs. When it is not being used by my friends and family or for Sacred Harp singings, I am happy to let other folks use it. I’m, a pretty open, friendly sort and am always interested in meeting new people.
