Our historic home's original attached garage has been converted to a tropical themed backyard bar with rope swing chairs and margarita décor. It's like a little trip to the islands and a perfect way to relax during the warmer months.

During the winter, the game room is the place to be. You will also enjoy the steady warmth of radiant heat and our comfortable leather furniture. We also have a 55" smart TV that you can use your streaming services on.

No parties! The Hobnobber is monitored by MINUT party detection technology. The system will alert us if the decibels reach house party / kegger party levels. It also alerts us when rental capacity is exceeded. When the home is not rented it acts as a burglar alarm. The device is recommended and approved by Airbnb, INC. due to its unique capability to protect property but also protect the guest's privacy and our peaceful neighborhood.

Where you’ll be

Eau Claire, Wisconsin, United States

Once the city's most prestigious neighborhood, the Third Ward was home to successful business and professional leaders, including lumber barons, bankers, politicians, lawyers, doctors and architects. Today it is full of UWEC professors and students, entrepreneurs, families, and retirees. It has several impressive examples of late-nineteenth century architecture, reflecting the wealth and accomplishments of their former and current owners. Other houses in the area, are often substantial and stylish. It is a quite safe place to walk and meet fun people.

We are actively involved with the Third Ward Neighborhood Association and helping them lobby for common sense regulations. Simply being a good guest by keeping the property clean, noise levels down, and saying "Hi!" to anyone that walks by will help our mission immensely. Lastly, we donate 1% of revenue to the Neighborhood Association for community programs and improvement. Your stay helps this community! Feel free to brag about that.
