Newly remodeled 4 bedroom 2.5 bath, finished basement with lounge area and bar

It’s time to start planning for your Notre Dame Football weekend festivities! Are you thinking about having to split up your family or group into multiple cramped hotel rooms? Have you thought about the hassle of having to gather everyone up come game day, drive, or wait in line for a shuttle or cab and then wrestle the traffic to the stadium or your tailgating destination? FORGET ABOUT IT! THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE! It can't get much closer to Notre Dame! This beautifully renovated 2100 sq. ft. open concept one story home is the perfect set up for entertaining! This property sleeps 10 people, has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a finished basement with a 4 seat bar and is located 1 block and a half from the Notre Dame Avenue campus entrance! There's no traffic to beat here! No worries about trying to find parking for you or any visiting friends either since you've got 6 spots in the driveway / 2 car attached garage + additional street parking if needed. More importantly, YOU'LL BE A QUICK 5 MINUTE WALK TO THE FOOTBALL FIELD!

If you’re not tailgating at the stadium, it's a great place to do so right in the front yard! Grill out while you listen to the Notre Dame Marching Band! Take in all the excitement that you came here for while you people watch hundreds of passersby on their way to the game!

Going out on the town during your stay? Good thing it’s just a 2 minute walk to Night life at Eddy Commons with multiple bars and restaurants to choose from! There are many more restaurants, shops and bars all within a 5 minute drive as well!

Why Rocky chose Northeast South Bend

I was born and raised in South Bend! I've lived on this street my whole life! I grew up a block away from my grandparents, eventually got married and now live at this location right across the street from them! I love the area, the people, the closeness to many activities and the memories! Just to look across the street and reminisce on the many days spent there is and will be a wonderful gift to me through the years. We couldn't imagine living anywhere else!

What makes this House unique

Not many people can say that they get to hear the Notre Dame marching Band practice outdoors during the nice weather months! I know when Notre Dame scores a touchdown before I even see it on my T.V from the cheers at the stadium! A quick 5 minute walk and we're on campus with many beautiful trails and lakes to run, walk or bike. We never get bored! We have a great park area for our daughter, as well as shops, bars and restaurants just as close as campus is from us. What else could we want? These are all huge perks for us and some of the reasons we love it here! We get most of these benefits all year round, so we're happy to pass them off to our guests for the short, but fun filled weekend or week that they are here! We love this area so much that we just remodeled our whole home, which stood at about 1200 sq. ft., and added on an addition with all new common areas great for entertaining, adding up to our 2100 sq. ft. dream home to enjoy for many years to come with our daughter and new baby on the way!

                                                      Damien W.

                                                      Plenty of sleeping space for everyone.

                                                      Beautiful home perfect for large families

                                                      tracy c. new york

                                                      Such a wonderful stay in a beautifully appointed home. Plenty of space for large families. Large family room /kitchen perfect for gatherings. Short walk to notre dame stadium Beds were so comfortable !

                                                      Expectations Met and Exceeded!

                                                      Krista Y.

                                                      You are always curious if the pictures advertised for a VRBO are indeed what will be there when you arrive. I have to say, what was advertised was exactly what was delivered! The house is beautiful and very clean. The open floorplan was perfect for hosting several guests (we had 6 but this house could easily accommodate more). Our family is a bit picky on bathrooms, and we were very pleased with cleanliness at this home. The sleeping spaces were clean and comfortable and overall this was a FANTASTIC find.

                                                      The owners had bagels, cream cheese, juice, coffee, creamer, apples, plates, plastic utensils and cups for us upon arrival. So nice! They were very responsive with our messages and we felt comfortable through the whole process.

                                                      This house IS within walking distance to ND and Eddy's Commons...however, it is also very quiet! It's a couple blocks off of Notre Dame Ave, so a bit removed from the hustle. We only had to get in our car one time the whole weekend, and that was a trip to the grocery store. (which is fantastic so you can enjoy some brews an no worry of driving) Eddy's commons has several restaurants and food options...after a long day of walking around campus it was a nice option! There is a Starbucks there and a HUGE bookstore for ND apparel and goodies. We like Brothers for the brew and atmosphere...pretty hopping on a Friday afternoon. We had some apps, brews then walked to the pep rally. It was great!

                                                      My only regret is I don't feel as though we were able to take full advantage of all this house had to offer! The fire pit in the backyard and the cozy bar in the basement...maybe next time! :-)

                                                      Fantastic home 2 blocks from campus!

                                                      kristina c.

                                                      The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. The house had everything me needed plus some. We will definitely be back!

                                                      I rented the house for a girls'weekend to tailgate a ND game with my Daughter (senior at SMC)

                                                      Gwen N.

                                                      It was just what we wanted for the perfect girls'weekend. Location, Location, Location, and the house was meticulous too.

                                                      A great home on the edge of campus - perfect for 8 to 10

                                                      Dave C.

                                                      The house has just about all the upgrades and is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Only a hot tub would put it over the edge but that is quibbling. Rocky and Gina are perfect hosts who focus on every detail to make sure you are comfortable. This is a great deal for a large group since the visiting is so much easier than a hotel... and tailgating is easy as is the Eddy Street Common.

                                                      Well done...
