Be a part of history in the (re-)making as you settle into this calming and VERY spacious room in our Victorian home in Indiana's historic town of Pendleton on the Falls. A 20 minute drive to Indianapolis, 30-40 minutes to the international airport, 20 minutes to Muncie and a quick walk to some of the best antique shops, restaurants and scenic walks that Indiana has to offer! Be one of the growing number of guests who have had the chance to enjoy the artfully-appointed Wisteria House renovation.

The space
Stocked with amenities for the business travelers or small town explorers, this room was the first of several that our family is giving a second life after rescuing the gorgeous Victorian Wisteria House (ca. 1888) from demolition.

The Coastal Room is a large open space that occupies much of the back half of the house, upstairs. It is private, peaceful, and restful -- featuring locally hewn hardwood floors and a comfortable mix of antique to modern furnishings. The room is baseboard-heated and cooled by a window unit -- but it's so shaded and well-insulated, it's hardly needed.

As you can see in the pictures, the room includes...:
-- Antique cast-iron full-sized bed (mattress on the softer side)
-- Pub table that doubles as a private dining option or work space
-- Walk-in closet and TONS of shelving
-- Mission-style sofa (folds down into full-sized sofa bed)
-- Private bathroom with walk-in shower (at bottom of stairs off of back hallway)
-- All linens provided for up to four guests
-- Dedicated guest space in kitchen (shelves in cabinet + fridge), full use of dishes/cooking wares if you want to DIY some meals :)
-- Free wifi
-- Dedicated guest parking
-- Private entrance / back porch

After over two years of renovations, we are excited to welcome you to our home that we plan to eventually fully restore to its former status as one of the preeminent historical homes in Pendleton. Your stay contributes to this ongoing project, which is incremental (so that it won't disturb guests or neighbors!). As with any renovation, it's possible that not everything in the common areas will be perfectly perfect. That said, the fully-renovated guest room IS perfect :) -- and so will be your stay at the Wisteria House.

Guest access
You will have access to the bedroom, of course, which has been fully restored. Also a dedicated bathroom with shower at the bottom of the loft stairs, as well as full use of all common areas in the house itself (i.e. the first floor, or everything you see in pics :)

Other things to note
We have three cats in the house who are very sociable, however they are strictly contained in the front part of the house so they will not disturb your privacy or sleep. Your stay will definitely be more comfortable if you're not allergic and ideally are used to a cat-friendly home. We also have a Jack Russell terrier named Humphrey who will very enthusiastically welcome you to the house :) He will not bother you during your stay at the Wisteria House, as he generally sticks close to the family.

Location

Pendleton, Indiana, United States

We are two blocks from Pendleton's main street, where there's a variety of restaurants/bars, an ice creamery, a coffee shop or two, and some really fun antique shops. If you like the outdoors and history, we have a little of both. The community pool is walkable from the house and a ton of family fun in the summertime. The falls at Fall Creek (also a short stroll) are gorgeous at any time of year. The surrounding park area has a number of walking/running trails. The park features several historical markers that describe interesting historical events throughout the town's founding and development.

We're a mother / daughter duo who enjoy building a reputation for hosting memorable and worry-free stays. We both own the Pendleton IN home, the Wisteria House, where you will find Mackey hard at work renovating the Wisteria House as a real BnB (someday!)--and for now, using AirBnB as a launchpad. Molly splits her time between The Wisteria House, Washington DC, and international travel--and often lists her spare room in DC on AirBnB as well. Both of us like gardening, dreaming up new concepts for home decor, cooking, coffee, and reading. Mackey can probably read faster than any existing solid state processor and enjoys almost every genre you can imagine. Molly works in climate policy and likes summer nights, nature and reading good journalism.

During your stay
Your point of contact during your stay is me, Mackey -- I co-own this home with my daughter and live in the home. I'm happy to help if you need anything at all! I can be as interactive or hands-off as desired during your stay. As an historian, I love to tell everyone about the history of the town and the house and will gladly offer suggestions for things to do around town or in Indianapolis--just ask!
