My 1920s bungalow includes two guest bedrooms with queen sized beds, down comforters, feather/down pillows, line curtains and private bathroom. The guest area also includes a garden porch, private entrance, living room and, dining area with microwave, small refrigerator and handmade maple work table.

The space

My 1920s bungalow has two guest bedrooms with queen sized beds, one with a memory foam mattress and one with a feather bed. Both bedrooms have down comforters, feather/down pillows, and linen curtains.

My place is a 90 year old bungalow with a straw bale addition. We are about 200 feet from the B-Line and it's about a 15 minute walk to downtown Bloomington. Close to restaurants, bars, organic groceries, large grocery store, music venues, and performance venues.

Neighborhood is mixed with a variety of families, grad students, artists, and older people who used to work in the television factory. Public transit within one block of house.

We are building a wood-fired bread oven micro bakery in the backyard. We serve the country style artisan bread for breakfast with locally made jams.

We love people from all over the world, especially people who love life.

Guest access

You have full access to two bedrooms, the living room and a dining/work space.

Interaction with guests

I will usually be around and provide fresh bread and coffee in the morning.

Other things to note

In the morning for breakfast I serve fresh artisan sourdough bread that I make with organic wheat flour. Plus locally made jams and locally roasted coffee or a number of teas.

If you would like something more, you are welcome to bring it.

Keith was absolutely lovely & made some of the best bread I have ever had! He was extremely kind and helpful, as well as knowledgeable about the area surrounding his home. Thank you for being such a lovely host to us. We are so looking forward to staying again soon!

Keith was very nice and the bread he prepares every morning is delicious. This was a very exotic place to stay and a great experience overall.

Keith's place was absolutely awesome. It blew my expectations and was clean and my colleague said it was one the most comfortable bed that he had ever used. Bread in the morning was absolutely delicious too. Keith was great in his responses and was flexible with us in terms of timing. Will definitely be looking at this location again if I'm ever in the area.

Keith's place was even better than we could have imagined. The space is very comfortable and peaceful. The beds were extremely comfortable and the location could not have been better. The trail is about a minute from the house and takes you safely into downtown for dining and sightseeing. The delicious bread and coffee in the morning made our day and the only downside was that we had to eventually check out. Thanks for creating such a wonderful experience!

Very clean and comfortable home. Great location. Unfortunately I wasn't able to partake in the bread and coffee - next time for sure.

Keith User ProfileKeith is a superhost.

I am a textile and banner artist, art professor and baker. My house is a 1920s bungalow with a straw bale addition and a huge kitchen. The house is located 1/2 block from the B-Line pedestrian and bicycle path. I teach drawing and art appreciation at a local community college. I am starting a micro-bakery in my back yard and I bake artisan style naturally leavened bread. I love traveling to Rome, especially Trastevere and the American Academy. I lead an art parade for the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival in September and create a huge party for the Pride Film Festival in January. We have between 2 and 4 dinners with amazing Italian and creative food with friends, neighbors and roommates. I am passionate about Dutch bicycles, bread, pasta, urban design, community and beauty.
Staying here you will have your own bath and sitting area along with the bedroom(s) in the bungalow part of the house. You will be invited to dinner with neighbors and given a loaf of fresh bread. My favorite style of traveling is to stay in a house with my private area but with easy access to meals and conversation.
