Restored 1938 home with original oak floors. You will have this sunny and homey house all to yourself. It is in a very quiet neighborhood and only 3 blocks from the Ohio River and the River Walk. There are a couple of restaurants that overlook the river and within walking distance. We have plenty of grocery stores, pharmacies, gas, and a theatre in the Newburgh area. We're only 10 minutes from east Evansville. Newburgh is a great walking town with historical houses and civil war history.
The house was built in 1938, by the Herr's, and they raised eight daughters and one son in the home. We are the second owners. The house has been updated and the original oak floors have been brought back to life. The house has never been smoked in. We have a lot of children at Herr House, so for safety issues the gas stove was disconnected, but there is a microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, tea maker, toaster, iron and ironing board. There is no WiFi.
You will be given a key when you arrive from the hosts. We will show you around and answer any questions. We love meeting all our guests in person and sharing our love of the house and the town.
Interaction with guests
There are flyers or websites for nearby restaurants in a basket on the counter in the kitchen. A couple of the restaurants are overlooking the river. Most will be in walking distance and so is the River Walk so remember to bring your walking shoes. We also have some brochures in the magazine rack in the living room that will give you some history of Newburgh and if you are game, a walking tour of historical buildings and homes in the area.
There is no WiFi.
Other things to note
We do not allow pets in the house, however there are two dogs in an enclosure outside that will let you know they are there if you come home after dark. They are sweet old dogs, but great watchdogs.
No smoking, no pets allowed, no extra guests that are not included on the reservations, no parties, no drinks on the wood furniture (there are white coaster on the coffee table), wet towels in laundry basket in bathroom closet, and if you use the iron please unplug and leave on the stove. Check in is after four p.m. and check out is eleven a.m.
We are an outgoing couple who love to meet new people and love to travel. We enjoyed the Airbnb experience in Europe while visiting our granddaughter who was studying abroad with UCF and we are anxious to share that experience here in Newburgh, Indiana.
