***Note that the neighborhood itself is transitional, and while our guests have never had safety issues while staying with us, the area hosts eclectic mix of people: both locals and tourists. The police station is less than a mile away, along with many other popular restaurants and attractions. If you have any specific questions or concerns, please feel free to read previous location ratings/reviews from other guests, and/or reach out prior to booking.***

We love using AirBnB as a resource for better lodging options, as well as to host others in our hometown. We live in Northwest Indiana, love the outdoors, and aim to travel at least 4 times each year--even if that just means taking a weekend to enjoy a nearby city/town. Overall, we're low-key, friendly people who love to spend time with our kids, get away in nature, hike, travel, and explore more of the world. :) As hosts, we tend to be "hands off" so that you can enjoy your privacy while on vacation, but we provide a guide for activities and are always available to answer any questions or offer advice. Please feel free to message us if you have additional questions! We look forward to having you!
