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.

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.

Absolutely beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrange a family getaway every year and its always a hassle trying to arrange multiple rooms at hotels etc. So we wanted to try something new and book a house so we can all be one space. So we booked this home and I must say it exceeded our expectations in every way. The home is just as described in the listing and looks just as good as the pictures. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and that backyard is sooooo tranquil. Unfortunately, it rained most of our stay otherwise we were ready to grill and relax on that porch! The home is furnished with absolutely everything that you need. The rooms are adequate in size. The family loved the pool table and backyard space. The kitchen and bathrooms are all up to date. I liked that the area felt secluded but you are only a 7-10 min drive from a major shopping area. I can go on and on... The home owner is very nice and responds very quickly to questions. The welcome letter was a nice touch as well. It really felt like home. Thanks for sharing your home.

Wonderful Neighborhood and Amazing Owners

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home with some of town friends for a little get together. The owners could not have been more accommodating. They were a pleasure to do business with and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I found the prices to be well comparable with the area. The neighborhood is quiet and the backyard offers amazing privacy.

We did not get out much to sight see because the accommodations were so enticing so I can't speak to what's in the area. I recommend loading up the fridge with some eats and just kicking back and relaxing. There is enough space in the home to let the kids play in the basement while the adults play cards upstairs.

Do yourself a favor and stay here for a nice long weekend! I hope to come back and visit again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Drew. I'm so glad you and your group enjoyed their stay. Our policy is to return all security deposit if our home is left in good order. Your friends certainly did that. They even started a load of towels! It was a pleasure to have you here.

Great location for a team trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our high school girls basketball team stayed in this house for a weekend while we played in a tournament nearby. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! The girls were so excited when we arrived and couldn't wait to explore the home. We knew that the home had room to sleep 15, but Barb had actually set up extra beds for us. We were able to spread out and the girls absolutely loved the basement! We cooked meals there on two occasions and the beautiful kitchen and outdoor deck made for great dining. The house was very well stocked with linens and was very clean when we arrived. It sat in a quiet neighborhood that was great for walks or runs. Barb was prompt in her responses and in returning the security deposit. We would definitely recommend this property to others!
