The Space

I am renting out a large comfortable bedroom in my carefully restored 100 year old cottage in a historic neighborhood.! It has a private room with a shared kitchen and bathroom. you also have your very own private entrance. I prefer long term rentals ( full semester) and have a discounted price for this. There is a shared living room and tv for use. A washer and dryer are available. I have a wonderful garden and a porch swing, which is perfect for those warm summer days!
I have also changed the bed because my guests were not happy with the futon. You now have a new full sized bed...

The City buses run is only a block away. It is a very short walk to downtown Bloomington with all its wonderful restaurants and charming shops.
I have one small dog with a rather quirky personality, She is a rescued dogs and is rather indulged! After the initial intro she will win your heart!

Experience Bloomington, Indiana while staying at the height of comfort right next to town! Bloomington Indiana is the perfect combination of charm and culture. From the great outdoors to the vibrant downtown, Bloomington is filled with contradictions that somehow blend together to make an exceptional community.

Guest Access

The Kitchen, Bathroom, living room and of course the wonderful porch and garden.

Interaction with Guests

That is up to my guests. I tend to wait and see how much interaction that they want. I’m also LGBT friendly and welcoming

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is full of the best kindest people. We have graduate students, faculty, and local artists, musicians and factory workers.

Getting around

You are in walking distance of downtown and biking distance of Campus.The buses run close to the House!

Other Things to Note

My Home is Historic. It has plenty of quirks and oddities. But I love it and I am constantly working to improve things...

  • Our Bloomington stay with Barbara was a first airbnb experience. It was a thoroughly convincing one. Barbara is generous and the penultimate hostess! The ease of settling into a huge, comfortable bedroom, sharing the main areas in the house and, and coming and going truly felt comfortable. There are many lovely memories...but sitting in the porch swing watching fireflys light up her whimsical gardens is one that will remain a meditation image for me for a long time. Certainly recommend this venue to anyone seeking a caring and peace filled time. Thanks, Barbara!

  • If you would like to stay in Bloomington, IN, I recommend you to choose Barb's house. It is in a good neighborhood and you can enjoy resting in the comfortable bedroom. Barb is awesome and friendly. By staying in Barb's house, I found a very nice friend, "Barb" of course.

  • Barb was a wonderful host. Very accommodating but also conscious of privacy. The house is clean and visually appealing. The location is a short walk or bike ride into the center of town, so it's quite convenient. I would absolutely stay here again next time I visit. Thank you for a great stay Barb!

  • The cutest street in Bloomington! I had a comfy stay at Barb's and a delicious meal down at the Restaurant Tallent -- a nice little walk from Barb's house. Lovely!

  • Barb was great! After my flight was delayed ridiculously, Barb still came to pick me up from the IMU shuttle bus stop at 10pm. She's incredibly nice, the apartment is great and Barb is a very accommodating host.

  • If I could give Barb six stars I would! I had a wonderful stay at her place. She is very welcoming and her house is really nice and clean. I only stayed in the area for one day, but Barb was nice enough to get up early and drop me off at my conference. If I go back to the area I would definitely stay there again. I would recommend for anyone to stay there.
