Map

Notre 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. Wine country of southwest lower Michigan, and Fernwood Botanical Gardens (Niles) are just a short drive away! Canoe the St. Joseph River or kayak South Bend's East Race. The Morris Performing Arts Center in South Bend attracts major concerts and off-Broadway shows, and is home to the South Bend Symphony Orchestra. Elkhart is the recreation vehicle capital of the world and is home to the RV/Motor Home Hall of Fame and Conference Center, as well as Wellfield Botanical Gardens. One of the best regional zoos in the country has its home in South Bend's Potawatomi Park Zoo. Did you know that the Studebaker automobile was built right here in South Bend? Visit the Studebaker Museum, and dine at Tippecanoe Place, the former Studebaker mansion! You won't be disappointed. If outlet mall shopping is your thing, visit Michigan City for the "Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets" mall. South Bend is also home to the festive River Lights, an interactive light sculpture across the bridge on St. Joseph River, is the newest addition to the list of things to do and see. They were introduced in honor of SB's 150th birthday in 2015.

Beautiful property, well appointed home, overall everything you could need in one spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and the property was great! The location was close to everything you could need. If staying for a Notre Dame visit, this would be ideal if it isn't necessary to be in close walking distance. It is still very close to the stadium.

Alas, we rented the home for a bachelor party weekend and it was great. A lot of open space for people to congregate and have conversations. The kitchen is big and allowed a few of us to cook for large groups with ease. Our favorite was definitely the back yard though. The seating area right off the back of the house was a great place to hang out, as was the fire pit area at the back of the property. The yard is very large and could accommodate a large group. I spent the weekend wishing my kids were there as it would be a great place to spend time with the family.

If you want a large place to stay, with the charm and character of a historic home, this is the place for you!

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

We were happy to be able to stay at this beautiful home - was the perfect place for family to stay for a family wedding weekend. Spacious allowing privacy for everyone. My grandson loved the frogs in the pond. I didn't realize it was so close to the highway so there was some noise around the clock but overall a wonderful home.

The size of the place was perfect. Needed lots of space and that was great. Not very clean.

  • 2 of 5

When entering the door cobwebs and such where all around. Walked into kitchen to find the doorknob needed to be fixed. Nice touch on leaving the eggs and juice etc for new guest. However the inside drawers were very filthy and glasses needed to be rewashed. First day the shower pipe broke and we had a leak into dining room. Maintenance man came quickly and was very courteous. Didn't give us any good news since we would be down a shower the whole time. Slept in the master bedroom and first thing was comforter was stained. Basement was a constant battle with spiders and bugs. First night and the cots broke/collapsed. Had the mattresses on the floor and with the bugs it wasn't ideal sleeping conditions. The back yard is great but the cushions to sitting are not so great! Driveway is a bit difficult to maneuver with even a couple cars around. We were there for my daughters wedding and having the hair and makeup people come in with their cars made for issues. Wish I would of known. The house is beautiful and old but rugs need a good shampooing along with massive cleaning. Wedding was great and the Basilicca was beautiful.

ordination weekend

  • 5 of 5

we rented this house for the weekend of our nephew's ordination as a Holy Cross priest. we slept 8 of our 10 kids comfortably and it was a great setting to reflect on the events of the weekend. Loved the creek and even saw a few beautiful rainbow trout. the location was close and convenient to the campus. the house and kitchen were well stocked and outfitted with all the tools needed to put on a few of the meals we had there. Thanks David for the welcome gifts in the refrigerator.
