The Major Dunbar House is located in the heart of everything that DePauw and Greencastle have to offer. Your family will enjoy our gourmet kitchen, 1st floor Master Suite, 3-spacious bedrooms upstairs, and 2.5 bathrooms! Our house can comfortably sleep 9 guests (5 individual beds total). Whether you are the family of a prospective (or current) DePauw student, a trustee, alumni, visiting faculty member, or are simply looking for a relaxing getaway, Major Dunbar House will truly feel like home!

The space
Before making a reservation, we kindly ask that you read the following information in its ENTIRETY:

Our house has everything you need for relaxing with family, or for entertaining your guests, including:

- A fully-equipped Kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher, cooktop.)
- A full-size Refrigerator (with water and ice dispenser.)
- Keurig single-serve coffee maker (with assortment of K-cups!)
- 40-cup banquet coffee maker/dispenser.
- Large-capacity front-load Washer and Dryer.
- 65-inch TV with cable TV Access.
- A LARGE, power-recliner sofa (for watching that big TV!)
- High-Speed fiber Internet service and Wi-Fi throughout.
- 2 car, detached Garage
- Central Heat and A/C
- Best of all, enjoy the unique ambiance of lovingly restored woodwork,
original stained glass windows, and period antiques.

You’ll also love our beautiful outdoor space:

We have a 2-level deck with a gas fire-pit, a Pergola (complete with a relaxing rock bubbler fountain,) a built-in Broil Master premium gas grill, a separate gas Blackstone griddle, and a gas-fueled outdoor fireplace (with chimney) will be perfect for those chilly fall evenings.

Follow the slate stepping stone path to reach our "secret garden," hidden behind the garage-- featuring a carved wooden swing and a matching miniature bridge (you just might find a bunny playing under it!)

Extra folding tables and chairs are available in the garage and can be taken inside the house, or around the property, as needed.

Our neighborhood is normally pretty quiet. As the closest residential home located next to the DePauw University main campus, our neighborhood is shared by several campus buildings and student residences. To the rear is the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house. You may occasionally hear music playing during the day or in the evening. The members of the house are careful to end all activities by a reasonable hour, so you likely won't be disturbed, but please be aware of this when classes are in session. Our neighbors across the street are members of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house. They are equally cautious about being respectful of the neighborhood by keeping things quiet and you shouldn't be bothered by them, but just a heads up if you see any activity.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON RESPECTING OUR NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBORS:

** Please be aware that our house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and has a narrow driveway that is shared with our neighbors. Safety is paramount and any vehicles that are larger than a normal-sized SUV should not be driven into the shared driveway and should instead be parked in the street out front. Please use caution when driving in the driveway as it's an ACTIVE DRIVEWAY. Never stop or park in the shared section of driveway and if you plan to come or go frequently, please park in the street until you are in for the night.

*** Fireworks of any kind are strictly prohibited.

**** All local, state and federal laws must be followed. This includes the
prohibition of underage drinking on the premises.

We want to continue offering this beautiful house to our DePauw and Greencastle communities and will be unable to do so if our guests (and their visitors) are disrespectful to our neighbors, or to our neighborhood.
Thank you very much for your help in fulfilling this request!! :) :) :)

Should you have any questions about proposed activities, capacity, our location, or any of our policies in advance of your stay, please inquire PRIOR to making a reservation, or before your arrival.

Kindest regards,

The Major Dunbar House Team

Where you’ll be

Greencastle, Indiana, United States

There are many great restaurants within walking distance, our favorite is Almost Home at 17 W. Franklin. If you are looking to get outside, try a round of golf or the driving range at Tiger Pointe Country Club, just north of town. And if you need to get some work done, drop into the Tenzer Hub for Entrepreneurship for high-speed internet and a quiet work environment.

We have an information binder in the house with websites, contact information and additional details for all the above and more!
