Just 5 blocks SE of campus, our charming Cape Cod home & garden has an eclectic European feel. Perfect for couples, families and small groups of friends attending IU special event weekends or Jacobs School of Music events and auditions.

The space

The house reflects many years this Bloomington native spent living in Europe and has what the Germans call "Gemutlichkeit" - a mixture of warmth, friendliness & comfort. From its original hardwood floors to the array of thriving houseplants in the sunroom & throughout the house, you will feel right at home.

The back garden is a veritable wildlife sanctuary with dozens of varieties of birds, including hummingbirds (July-September) Finches (mainly gold and purple), Woodpeckers, Robins, Nuthatches, and of course the state bird, the Cardinal. Use the pair of binoculars in the sunroom bookcase and see what others you can identify.

Guest access

Guests have access to all rooms in the house, except the basement and garage.

This home is delightful, charming, and very inviting. The lovely owner, Kim, was extremely well prepared and hospitable, leaving us a manual she made filled with house instructions and things to do during our time here in Bloomington. If you are going to stay anywhere in Bloomington and want to feel cozy and at home, this is the place for you. The backyard feels and sounds like a bird sanctuary and the interior of the home is lovely and eclectic. We kept saying we could picture ourselves living here. It's that good. We highly recommend this home and would love to come back!
