About Barbara

The owners designed and built this dream home themselves. Having a large family, entertaining them here is a passion, hobby and pleasure.

Barbara purchased this house in 2006

Why Barbara chose Indiana

After living in multiple homes, nothing was ever just right, so we designed every detail and made it perfect.

What makes this house unique

The open floor plan is the largest we've ever seen. Pictures simply don't do it justice. The large great room opens to the formal dining room and chef's kitchen - all combined and offering luxury entertaining space and breathtaking views of the private wooded backyard.

Outstanding Home!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 14 other men stayed at this home for a football weekend guys trip! I cant say enough about the location and this beautiful home! It was everything that was described and more. Very well furnished and maintained. I had several conversations with the owner (Barb) and she is very accommodating and helpful. We had a great time and ND beat Miami in the last few seconds of the game. Go Irish! Would love to stay at this home any day of the week. Thanks Barb! Loren and the guys!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My entire family met in South Bend for a Notre Dame football game. I can't say enough about this home and Barb. The house is spacious, comfortable, clean and accommodating. We spent the entire day on campus and really looked forward to coming back to our home at night to just relax and enjoy each others company. Barb was very responsive, professional and warm through the entire process. One day we made a mistake of locking ourselves out of the house (don't ask, keys were inside) but there was no worry. Barb had 2 different family members come to the house ASAP to rescue us. Thank you Barb for trusting us in your home and sharing it with us.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with my parents and sister and her son stayed over the weekend for a wedding in South Bend. The house and property were wonderfully maintained and beautiful. Plenty of room to spread out or enjoy family time together. The eat-in kitchen table sat 6 which was perfect for us as we did not have any formal meals. Beds were comfy, bathrooms clean and the house felt like home right away. Barb was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any and all emails sent her way. The location is not bad at all. It's about a 10 minute or less to the grocery store and the bypass is super close. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for the privacy of a home on a vacation in the area.

Great property....highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Several years ago a group of us from across Canada, all longtime friends from our college days, started a tradition of having a "boys" weekend each year in which we would catch both an NCAA and NFL football game. This year we chose South Bend for a Notre Dame - USC game and Indianapolis for a Patriots - Colts game.

In South Bend, we stayed at rental property # 439648 for three nights and had an absolutely wonderful time. The house was spotlessly clean, large and well appointed with a big-screen TV in the living room so that we could watch, in comfort, the World Series playoffs and various football games. The kitchen is quite large and fully equipped and we made great use of the outdoor gas barbecue. The location is convenient to stores and highways yet is tranquil in setting, backing on to a forest.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a warm and friendly, luxurious property in the South Bend area.
