TECHNOLOGY:

***Note that there are train tracks down the street. Trains go by occasionally and you may hear the whistle. (Some guests have said they never heard it once while others heard it more often.) We've provided sound makers in each room for light sleepers.

***Note that if you are bringing infants/babies, the house is NOT baby-proofed. (Furniture is not secured to walls, outlet blockers are not included, cabinets/drawers are not locked, etc.) We also do NOT have a pack and play/portable crib, so guests will need to bring their own. Renters are solely responsible for all guests in their party.***

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!
