Charming 1926 bungalow located in a delightfully diverse and friendly neighborhood and just 1.4 miles away from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Park in our 2-car garage behind the house off the alley and walk to the race! Two bedrooms and a queen sofa bed, updated bathroom, a private backyard deck with patio furniture will make you feel right at home. The kitchen, while small and a little wonky (has the original built-in Hoosier-type cabinet) is supplied with all the equipment you need..

The space
The house sits on a small lot landscaped with Indiana natives. There is a front porch (we plan to install a porch swing soon) and the front door opens into the living room/dining area. Pine floors throughout the house and original windows --they all open! Living room has a queen sofa bed, love seat, chair and ottoman. Behind the living room space is a dining table. There are ceiling fans in the living area and bedrooms. The bathroom is between the two bedrooms and each side has its own door. The kitchen has the original 1926 floor plan but the back breakfast nook area now features the fridge and cabinets. It is rather ugly looking but completely functional! Fresh paint and shelving are in its future. At one time, there had been a door closing off the three steps to the basement landing and back door, but someone down the line had it removed. The landing area needs some finish work, drywall patching and paint. The back door opens out to a private backyard and deck with patio table, umbrella and chairs. We have four raised garden beds and blackberries, raspberries and strawberries growing in the backyard. Two car garage is accessible from the alley. Lock box is inside the garage at the entry door. The automatic garage door is opened from an exterior box with code. We encourage parking in the garage and entering from the backyard to avoid parking on the narrow street. But you can always park in the garage, get the key and walk around to the front door if you wish--the front entry is a prettier!

Urban farmer (backyard "farm" in Indy, front yard "farm" in Fort Wayne) and it seems I'm always outside getting my hands dirty. Travel style: Fearless, meandering and off the beaten path. My husband Bob and I fell in love with Indianapolis while there for 6 weeks during his recovery from transplant surgery.

During your stay

Guests will have total privacy but we will be available by phone or text if needed. Because we have raised bed vegetable gardens in the back yard, we may come to weed, tend or harvest, but we will let you know ahead of time. This may only occur with guests who stay for longer than a week.
