We offer a sustainably furnished, comfy garage loft apartment completed in early 2016. Furnished with a queen bed and a double futon, this apartment can sleep four. Included are all the amenities: dishwasher, washer/dryer, refrigerator, ceiling fans, air conditioning, tv and Internet.

The space

Although this apartment is situated in the small town of Battle Ground, it has a country feel to it. Surrounded by many large trees, the creek-bordered property is filled with varied and abundant birdsong, and a gentle breeze rustles the leaves of the towering sugar maples. The bedroom windows afford a view of the pastoral setting beyond the creek, and nature surrounds us.

Guest access

If you arrive late, motion sensors will activate lights to illuminate your way. With a reservation, we will forward instructions to for opening the walk gate. There is an entrance key to the garage as well as a coded security dead bolt to the apartment.

Our history: he is a builder, she is a health care professional, and together we are urban farmers, lovers of the land and nature, and stewards of our environment. Translated this means we are active, we have projects, and more closely resemble a mini farm than just a small town residence. We have lots going on and have the tools, materials, and items needed for a "farming/building" lifestyle .

Interaction with guests

We are in and out, and are available in person or via popular electronics, (Texting, phone, or email). Connect, check our location, and let's talk. While you are our guests, we will respect your privacy, and at the same time, we will be available should you need to interact, or just want some friendly conversation.

Other things to note

First, for better or worse we live next to the "tracks", railroad, that is. Depending on one's perspective, we are on the wrong side or the right side. On occasion, it is annoying...about .5% of the time or less. You might take a pause if outside in conversation ... The other 99.5% it is the quiet side street of small town living. AmTrack rolls through about 7:55 AM and 9:45 PM daily with misc. freighters during the day. It has become an interesting awareness into one part of the freighting business and the transportation of goods across the United States. The db sound meter hits 56 inside the apartment and 87 next to an open window facing the street. Other than that enjoy the local attractions if your time allows. We have assembled a fairly complete listing of area amenities and attractions.

Also, I have had this concern on security cameras, exterior and interior when staying at other ABB's. We currently have none, but will eventually install some exterior cameras. Please read the house folder and the article on privacy and cameras. I thought it was good information.

This place was everything we were looking for - quiet, clean, cozy, comfortable, relaxing. Becky and Jim were very accommodating with our schedules, multiple cars, and our comings/goings. It was such a pleasant trip!

Becky and Jim's place was all it was advertised. Battle Ground was a cute, quiet place. The apartment was clean and spacious. We were very busy with a family wedding, so we didn't have much time to interact with our hosts, but the interaction we did have was pleasant. They were thoughtful and considerate of our needs and comfort.

Becky and Jim are really nice and friendly hosts, they will do everything to make you feel welcome in Indiana. Everything was perfect from the location ( close to Purdue University but not to close, the warm welcome, the clean and nice apartment, this place has everything you need for a nice stay in Indiana/West Lafayette. Especially when you want to visit friends or family at Purdue University, it's the perfect place!

We had a wonderful stay at Becky and Jim's home. Becky and Jim were both very friendly and welcoming. The apartment was just as pictured, super clean and comfy. The bathroom was very clean and exactly what we needed. Great location, only 15 mins away from Purdue University. We would recommend their place to anyone and stay again when we visit our daughter at Purdue. Thank you, B & J! Hope to see you two when you visit SF!

We (a senior couple) visit Purdue each summer for a week. Until this year (2017) we stayed at a variety of hotels. Jim and Becky's loft apartment beats them all for total comfort and convenience. Our commute to Purdue was an easy 15 minutes with no traffic, no stop lights, etc. A very relaxing drive. (Except W. Lafayette traffic patterns were all disrupted with some major construction.) We had complete privacy. Our interaction with either Jim or Becky was limited to a pleasant greeting on arrival and a couple emails during our visit. We have already booked our return stay in 2018.

Amazing spot with an eclectic feel! What a perfect apartment! We got to chat with Jim a bit and appreciated his advice about different places to go in the area. We definitely recommend this place to family and friends!
