About this listing
Interested in a no-fuss stay near Notre Dame? This small bedroom includes serve-yourself breakfast (extra dorm fridge and microwave available). The room is in the finished basement treated to create cozy livable space - all tile so pets are possible.
Perfect for a solo guest on a budget or with a furry companion. Perfect for a doctoral candidate presenting at a conference, a parent coming to visit their Notre Dame student, or an alum coming in for a week-end function.
Private bedroom. Shared bathroom and living room, access to breakfast foods in the kitchen, possibility to use the kitchen, washer and dryer if needed or for an extended stay.
Interaction with Guests
I always set up an arrival time to meet guests and show them around the house, but after that, you can have as much privacy and independence as you would like. You will have access to a shared key in a lock box on the front door (combination to be given with wifi code upon arrival), you can serve yourself for breakfast, and all I ask for checkout is to place used linens in the hamper and lock up behind you! Or... we can have breakfast together, chit chat about life, and I can give you my recommendations for things to do or where to eat while you are here.
Close enough to walk to Notre Dame within 20-30 min, but yet far enough away to not have to worry about finding parking or dealing with crazy (drunken) fans. Close to the mall and the main strip for restaurants.
Other Things to Note
I can add an extra cot or two in the room, or make available the futon in the basement area if need-be... only if the other rooms are booked or you are bringing a pet with you and thus can only book this room with me.
Shoes off in the house, although with this room I am not so picky as the tile is easy to clean, unlike the light-colored carpet in the other rooms.
No smoking, drinking within reason (guests should not be intoxicated and sick from alcohol on the premises). Clean and quiet is valued in the home.
Heather was an excellent host. Good communicator and excellent cook (delicious breakfast every morning). Extremely well kept home and tidy room. Perfect for the3 night stay.
My stay with Heather was great! As a single, the small bedroom was perfect for my short stay. There was a small desk in the room to do work on also. Heather was very prompt in all that she did. The breakfast she made each morning was delicious! She was an enjoyable host!

About the Host, Heather
I teach French at IU South Bend, and enjoy discovering new cultures and new people. I am very active and enjoy playing sports, working out, dancing, as well as running and walking my Lab around the neighborhood. I speak French and Spanish fluently (as well as English!), and have been hosting international students in my home for 4 years. I live in the upstairs suite of the house with my husband Victor and our baby girl. I turned to AirBnB starting in 2013 to fill the downstairs rooms when my students and/or step sons are away, and to make a little extra cash to fund our own travels. Would love to have a chat with you about your own travels and swap travel tips, and of course, Notre Dame :)
Please contact me first through message before sending in a reservation request - I would hate for it to expire or have to turn you down if I don't have enough information from you (especially if this is your first BnB experience and you have no feedback yet). If it's not a Notre Dame football week-end, discounts are available, so it is best to establish a conversation first :)
