ADDITIONAL INFO:
We welcome guests of all backgrounds! However, due to prior disrespectful renters and property damage, we will only be accepting booking requests from:
--AirBnB users who are "verified" and who already have positive reviews from other hosts.
--Renters that are above the age of 25.
--Renters who are not bringing pets.
--A maximum of twelve guests per reservation.
--Renters who are not throwing gatherings/events. (We do have a ring camera installed at the front door.)
We value our relationship with our neighbors, so events/gatherings/parties are not to be held by guests. In order to keep the home in excellent condition for future guests, we are firm on these rules. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

SAFETY INFO:
--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. ***Guests will need to bring their own and are solely responsible for keeping a close eye on children.***
--Note that the steps in the home are *INCREDIBLY STEEP*. (The home is historic and was built in the early 1900s.) If all guests in your party are NOT able-bodied, it will be difficult to access the front door (stairs must be climbed) and the upstairs of the home (incredibly steep stairs). If you have non able-bodied guests staying with you, we recommend looking at some of our other listings to find a more comfortable fit. Even for those who are able bodied, the steep nature of the steps means you must take your time and use hand railings when climbing up/down stairs.

Other things to note
CHECK-IN INFO:
--Guests who book will receive detailed check-in instructions and a key code for entry on the morning of their scheduled arrival. All of this will be communicated through AirBnB messenger.
--Check-in is between 4 and 7 p.m.; guests must check out by 10 a.m. so that we can clean/prepare for our next renters before they arrive. (Note: We will try to accommodate early arrival/late check out requests, but often times, the cleaning crew requires the full time between guests if we have back-to-back bookings.)
--Our cancellation policy is moderate.

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!
