This Spring 2021 The Silk was chosen by AIRBNB as the 2d best place to stay in the greater South Bend-Mishawaka area. I close in January and February but re-open in March.

The space
THE SILK ON THE BEND is a one bedroom apartment on the lower level of our home. Full kitchen -laundry and living room and 3/4 bath. A separate locked bedroom. Tastefully decorated on the St. Joseph river.
We live on the premises-upper level. There may be a squeak or two in our floors. The house is as old as I am, so after 66 years...things change, right.
Kid friendly and toys and games provided.

Our neighborhood is quiet and country. The river is our backyard highway.

Most guests say that they sleep deeper here than they do at home. :)

My Husband and I are empty nesters. I am a retired Geriatric Social Worker, my husband is a retired CPA. . We love to entertain and get to share our lovely property with people . It's always been my dream to own a place where people can stop in for a little R&R. This home is located on a river NOT a lake. It is about 17 feet deep in the middle in front of my house. We DO NOT allow swimming. The river is swift and deep. We are close to the Elkhart Aquatic Center 5 miles as well as Amish country 45 min) and Lake Michigan ( 45 min). Lots to see and do just a few miles away. The Four Winds casino is about 30 min away by the bypass. Remember, just like Grandma's house. No smoking. As I move ahead to Summer listings and forward please aware I will be maintaining the unit using the cleaning protocols set forth by Airbnb. We also have a UV-D light which sanitizes the area. We feel this is an added layer of protection for Guests and we the Host. Please feel confident in booking with us. We will get through this by working together. Friends let's travel. I am approved with my Covid protocol It's my why would I do less. My husband and I are both vaccinated. Masks are up to you when you meet with us . Come one come all. The Silk on the Bend closes for the months of January and February. Opening again in March .
