About this listing

Come stay in Muncie's Emily Kimbrough historic district one of the most diverse collections of American architectural styles of the 1850’s to 1920’s anywhere. The Mansion at 825 East Washing Street is one of Muncie’s greatest architectural offerings.

The space

There is plenty of room for everyone whether in a private room or relaxing in the parlor, the music room, the living room or one of the two spacious porches. The beauty and handwork of the structure itself are an inspiration to its visitors. Please keep in mind this is an historic home and not a hotel.

I will be here during your stay. Typically I am either working in my sculpture studio on the third floor or off teaching at the university.

Jonathan's home is nothing short of amazing! He is a talented artist and the renovations he has done to the home are beautiful. Jonathan is a great host and we really enjoyed getting to know him. The space is very clean and the bed is very comfortable.

Jonathan's place is exceptional. Beautifully restored and close to downtown Muncie. We have stayed there before and plan to do so again in the future. Everything needed is provided and contact with Jonathan is quick and simple.

Beautiful home, comfortable and very tidy rooms, perfect location; within walking distance to Downtown Muncie, shops and restaurants. Also, close to Elm Street Brewing Company. Check it out for live music. Johathan is a great host. We stayed for nine days and just loved it there.

Jonathan User ProfileJonathan is a superhost.

I'm a traveler and have lived and worked in Canada, Europe, Asia and the United States. I currently teach Movement (combat, physical comedy, acrobatics, physical theatre and mask work) at Ball State University and run a small arts related internet business making and selling masks for theatrical use and actor training to clients world wide. I currently have masks in 45 countries.

I am a serious foody. My favorite thing to do is to share good food, good wine and good conversations with good friends. Travel for me is almost always associated with work but my work is also how I play. I'm not much of a tourist. I like to meet people and have experiences rather than see sights. Although I will say that I am obsessed by art museums and love live music.

I'm an obsessive neatnik. I fold my socks and organize my organization making it impossible for me to find anything. I'm the guy who makes the bed on the morning I check out of the hotel cuz that looks nice.

My montra is Kind and Fair and the slogan/principles to put into the world on the door to the Performance Lab that I feel everyone should live by is T.I.E. Tolerance, Inclusion and Empathy.
