Our home is a cozy place. We're close enough to Purdue that we can hear the crowd cheering at home football games from our deck. We're totally handicap-accessible. We have a large loft area, with a private full bath. A comfy couch, two small recliners & a large TV. There are two California Twin Beds pushed together making a King size Bed. They could be pulled apart to make 2 twin beds as well. We have a stair chair to get up the steep stairs. We have two dogs and a cat & a great backyard.
Our little stone cottage was built with river rock in the late 1800's-early 1900's. We would like to pursue it's being added to the National Register of Historic Places eventually. Currently it is listed as "noteworthy" for it's architecture in the Tippecanoe County Interim Report of Historic Buildings and Places!
We invite you to enjoy our deck and back yard as well as the Loft. You are welcome to play with the boys, (Toby and Baron) but they are not allowed to leave the yard without a friend or relative.
Interaction with guests
We will be around, but not intrusive. We can gate the stairwell so Toby and Baron cannot get up to bother you, but it's a bit of a challenge to keep Delilah away! She is a bit skittish around folks she doesn't know, hopefully that will keep her at a comfortable distance.
Other things to note
At the moment I am having a coded lock added to the door to allow ease of entry and exit.
The loft is stocked with a Keurig with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. There are packaged snacks, a tiny fridge with cold water and space for a small amount of food you may need to store. I will have fresh fruit, instant oatmeal, cheerios, and muffins or Danish for breakfast.
The washer and dryer are not available unless you are staying a week or more.
The grill is not included, but if I am home, and you let me know you would like to use it, I will accommodate most requests as I am able.
I am family friendly, however my stairs are steep and a potential hazard for small children. I have gates to block the top of the stairwell, but want you to be aware of the inherent danger of mixing small children and stairs.
Check out time is 11 am so we have time to flip the Loft for our next guests. However, you may store your luggage on our back porch if you need to until 3pm that same day.
