This spacious, two-story apartment is the main part of a home in which the basement was walled off into a separate apartment. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood 3 blocks from Earlham College, 2.5 miles from the Wayne County Fairgrounds, and 3.7 miles from Reid Hospital. It sleeps up to 7. We offer discounts for weekly and monthly stays, when booked in advance. For stays longer than 14 days, occupancy is capped at 4 and you must submit a reservation request.

The space
The first floor of the house has a large front porch that, during warmer months, has four cushioned chairs and two small tables for your use. (We can bring these out during colder months as well, on request.) The porch is also where guests can smoke (ashtrays are provided). The large living room has an enclosed gas fireplace, a large-screen Samsung Smart TV that has free TV Plus live programming as well as a variety of apps you can use to log into your own streaming accounts. The living room also has a sofa and a side chair.

Also on the first floor, the large, fully equipped kitchen has an expandable dining table that seats up to 8, a Keurig coffeemaker that makes either individual cups or can be used to fill a stainless steel carafe using ground coffee (a starter supply of K-cups is provided), and numerous other appliances (see the amenities listings, or ask if we have what you need).

A lockable door in the kitchen leads to a laundry room area that also has a half bath. Please note that the laundry room area (including the half bath) may be used by our very trustworthy extended-stay guests in other apartments from 9 am-9 p.m daily. For your privacy and sense of safety, simply lock the door from the kitchen to the laundry room area.

Upstairs, you will find all three bedrooms as well as the full bathroom with vintage tiles and tub-shower unit. The master suite has a plush queen bed, chifforobe, desk and an attached sun room with seating that folds down into a very small bed. The next-largest bedroom has a pillow-top full bed and small sitting area, a desk and a small closet. The smallest bedroom has two twin beds (one plush and one firm), a desk and a medium-size closet.

Where you’ll be

Richmond, Indiana, United States

This house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, across the street from a wooded park that has a playground. The park also has a log cabin with an added-on activity room and outside shelter that are available for rental from the City of Richmond (if, for example, you are planning a family reunion). Adjacent to the park is a basketball court located on the grounds of a nearby middle school.

I am a well-traveled journalist-turned-journalism professor, now retired, and there's nothing I love more than welcoming guests to stay in the kind of place I always wished I could find in my travels. If you stay with us, you also are likely to see my sweet partner and husband, Mickey, maintaining the grounds. We couldn’t keep our Airbnbs going without his skill, ingenuity and hard work. You may also meet my gracious assistant, Macel (pronounced MAY-sul), who gets full credit for any and all guests’ comments about our places being sparkling clean.
