Bedroom on Bus Line to IU or Mall

House - Private room · South Mill Stone Way, Bloomington, IN 47401, United States

The Space

Private bedroom with full bed in a large family home. There is a very large closet and a mirrored dresser in the room for your belongings. Your bathroom will be shared with two teenage boys (sorry).

Guest Access

The home has WIFI. A password will be given to you when you arrive.

There is a kitchen available. There is ample space in the refrigerator (but not much in the freezer). The oven has an indoor grill. A Keurig coffee maker is available, so bring your favorite pods. You have separate storage space in the pantry.

The home has two living rooms with cable TV - one has a PS-4 and the other has a Wii. Both have DVD capability. My sons are typically on the one with the PS-4, but the other is usually available. My washer/dryer are available for your use. The house has a front porch with two rocking chairs, which is a great place to spend nice afternoons. The back deck has a table for outdoor dining.

Interaction with Guests

I have a full-time job, but will be around the house in the evenings and on weekends. I will happily give advice and answer any questions you have. If I'm free, I can give you a ride somewhere in town (the bus doesn't operate on Sundays).

The Neighborhood

This is a quiet, peaceful neighborhood of one-family homes. There is a park within a close walk and a trail through a wooded area.

There are three supermarkets and a shopping mall less than two miles (3 km) away.

Getting around

The bus stop for lines 5 (to campus) and 8 (to the mall) can be seen from your bedroom window. There is also a driveway where a car can be parked off the street.

Other Things to Note

If you want to get an idea of the town of Bloomington, watch the 70s movie "Breaking Away." It was filmed in town. The bike race is still held every year.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I was extremely appreciative of Angela's hospitality and understanding when I needed to alter my stay. The room was very clean, warm, and accommodating as part of a beautiful home! Would highly recommend!

    January 2014
  • Angela was the perfect host. She allowed for privacy when needed and good company and conversation when opportune. She had every desirable amenity in her house and all were available for use; she left snacks in a basket and many guides about the city. Clearly, she was a thoughtful and considerate host in all aspects. Were I to return to Bloomington, I would stay with her any day! The price is right, and the stay is like a hotel. What are you waiting for?

    December 2013
  • Angela is a very kind and thoughtful host. Aside from providing a comfortable environment where I can work peacefully, she provided all the information, even the bus schedules etc., about the town that was very useful for a first timer like me.

    November 2013
  • Good to stay in cozy and clean room.

    October 2013
  • I made a reservation for a friend and did not stay with Angela. My friend had no complaints; Angela was quick to respond during correspondence, was a good host and the room was exactly as described. We would recommend Angela as a host if you're ever in Bloomington.

    September 2013
  • Staying in Angela’s place for 3 weeks is delightful. She is kind, friendly and accommodating, made our staying very comfortable in all respects. She was kind enough to invite us to her party. Accommodation was great, quiet neighborhood and very easy to get around using public transport. We definitely recommend her & their place. An A+ host and a wonderful experience.

    August 2013
  • Angela is a nice and warm host. She's very thoughtful and prepared all things needed including towels shampoos soap password for the door etc before my husband and I arrived. The room looks even nicer than posted. Angela's house is cozy and clean; the living room and dining room is very spacious. I worked with my laptop there in the morning and I enjoy the view from the porch. Angela is kind enough to share breakfast she made with me. I had a very nice bed and breakfast experience, reminded me those good b&b in Europe.

Hi. I love to travel -- 21 countries so far :) I'm not the type to stay for a weekend in a luxury suite -- I'd rather spend a week somewhere cheap. A recent trip was to Jamaica and I didn't have running water for five days (that's roughing a bit TOO much for me - LOL). My last trip was India :) The room I'm renting is my daughter's. She's away at college. Thus, I thought I'd get some use out of her room. Hopefully I'll meet some interesting people, too. I'll be happy to answer any questions about Bloomington (I love this town!) and point you in the right direction for whatever you need.
