South Bend is a great place for sports and education. If you find yourself here, I have a great place for you to stay. The bedroom accommodates two guests, and I am happy rent the entire home, for a special price, to host up to six people. Its comfortable and welcoming.

I am going to be traveling this fall, so I have limited availability. I have listed several football weeks for whole house rentals in the fall. I will vacate the house and you can use both bedrooms for up to 4-6 people.

The space

This bedroom in a cozy 1960's era ranch style home just north of Notre Dame campus is perfect for football weekends or other South Bend activities. The bedroom has one queen bed, a big closet and a desk. My home has two full bathrooms. The guest will have a private bathroom. There is also a fold out couch and an air mattress for additional people. The refrigerator and bar will be stocked with your favorite beverages upon request.

The home has an open floor plan with a big living room with cable TV and wireless internet. There is also a large patio with a fire pit and gas grill. The full kitchen has newer major appliances, and additionally a Keurig Coffee maker and a Soda Stream. Laundry is located on the main level. All these amenities are nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood with plenty of parking in the driveway.

The house is conveniently located within walking distance, one mile, to Notre Dame campus and also very close to numerous restaurants and shopping.

Extended check out available

Please inquire about renting the whole house during the week, or for football weekends, the house is available for $1200.

I travel a lot myself, so email me. I am always connected, so email and I will get right back to you.

P.S. I just purchased new mattresses and bedding! It is very comfortable!

Guest access

The guest will have access to most all of the house: TV, kitchen, and laundry.

Interaction with guests

I am happy to meet you for check in and check out. Most guests are busy and don't stay long at the house, and neither do I, but I am happy to chat and share coffee in the morning or stay out of your way.

Other things to note

Each room of my house is finished in a different color.

Susan's house was really charming and a great place to stay. I was there for a wedding at Notre Dame and the location was perfect. The bed was also really, really comfortable! The neighborhood was quiet and a relaxing spot to rest.

Susan's place was wonderfully quiet and convenient, a very restful place to stay while attending a conference at Notre Dame. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom well-appointed, and the house clean and easy to navigate. Susan was a great hostess, as well: well-organized, and helpful when needed but also low-key and easy to live with.

I am a professor at Indiana University in South Bend. I teach photography in a small art department. I travel a fair amount. I lead a study abroad program with a group of students from IU to Florence, Italy. I speak just a little Italian. I am also studying French now. I have been to many parts of the continental US. I am partial to the midwest and the Third Coast. If you are in South Bend to visit the Golden Dome, cheer on the Irish or their opponent, or for a specific research project, let me know. I am happy to host. And if I am in your town, I will look on this site first for a unique place to stay.
