About this listing

Built in 1912-13, the house was the home of one of the city's leading citizens. He was the father of our park system and pushed urban beautification on a recalcitrant and benighted city council. It is a grand, 5,000sf home.

The Space

Grand older home in a charming and safe neighborhood ten minutes from the center of Fort Wayne, and five blocks from the city's loveliest park. Shopping and restaurants are not far away.. On offer is a private suite of three rooms, two bedrooms with a connecting bath. Accommodations include breakfast with freshly ground coffee served between 7 and 8am. Off street parking is available, as are the grounds of the home. And, yes, WiFi.

The house, however, is not child-prepared, so adults only. Two persons only, at a time.

Nearby is a lovely neighborhood cafe and restaurant. The center is only a few minutes to the north with three fine restaurants along the way. Ten minutes away is another collection of excellent restaurants in two large shopping areas, what we might call "plaza malls."

Fort Wayne, sadly enough, has spotty public transit, the car rules here.

I am a vegetarian, so breakfast is meat free.

Guest Access

Living room, dining room, solarium, bedrooms and connecting bathroom, grounds. Please refrain from entering the kitchen or other parts of the house.

Interaction with Guests

I meet each guest, orient them to the degree they wish, share a bottle of wine, serve breakfast between 7 and 8 am, and am available when needed. I am an expert in the workings and history of the town.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood feels like a small, leafy town with a grand boulevard running to the city's most beloved park. The area was developed in the early 1900s in the charming architectural styles of that period.

Getting Around

A bus line is a few blocks away, but transit here is so intermittent that a car, a bike or good shoes, are essential. Cabs are available, but I can not recommend them.

Other Things to Note

The house is not suitable for children or families; only singles, couples or twosomes, please.

The host speaks German and Romanian well, my French will bring a tear to the eye to members of the Academie Francaise, and my Russian is limited.

The beds are 3/4 size, meaning between full and twin. They are pioneer beds, each an antique.

Please park under the portico in the drive off Rudisill. The main entrance is right there.
