The Space

Private space in my 2br 1bath home in beautiful Prospect Hill, a 7 minute walk from downtown Bloomington, IN. Off street parking and private back entry. Twin bed, available drawer and shelf space. 2 indoor cats if you need some furry love. Non-smoking household. High ceilings. Homey, ecclectic decorations.


Expect to have the place to yourself a lot of the time. If I'm not out doing things, I'm reading, watching TV online or working.

Tell me what you need as soon as you know you need it.
Ask kindly, but also without hesitation.
If it is within my power to do so, it will be given.
If I am out of town, I have folks who help me take care of things that need taken care of.

My home is old and quirky.
I am young and quirky.
You are booking a room in my home, not a professional BnB. It's a work in progress.
I will do my best to make your stay everything you want it to be.
I will not attempt to read your mind.

I live in a quiet neighborhood near downtown. Walking distance to 3 small grocery stores, including the local co-op, downtown, bars and an authentic Irish pub. Just a 15 minute walk to the Sample Gates of Indiana University. There's a park a block away and several forests between 10 and 30 minutes away. You're only a 20 minute drive from Nashville, IN in Brown County, home of delicious fudge, art, candy, leather shops, candle makers, and a fall leaf display that draws thousands.

The city bus stops nearby hourly. It takes about 15 minutes to drive just about anywhere in town, including the mall on the east side and some big box stores on the west.

My place is a safe space to talk about just about any topic and be your unique and quirky self.

I'm open to a long-term housemate.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Kelly was a really good host during my stay in Bloomington. If you are looking for a large private room with little interaction with the host, this is the place for you. Just note that the private entrance walkway is through a bed of weeds/is not paved and there is no closet/drawer space. The humidifier and air conditioner were very luxurious, and this room is a great find in Bloomington.

  • Didn't have face-to-face contact with Kelly at all during my visit, since I was mostly just bouncing around town all day and all night. Bed was comfortable and she made sure that there was an A/C unit and dehumidifier available to me. Simple digs at a great price, perfect for what I needed - a place to crash after long days. The private entry was really convenient as well.

  • Great location, walking distance to campus & downtown. Kelly was hands-off but helpful when I wanted anything, gave me tips on where to eat and lent me a bicycle.

  • I enjoyed my stay with Kelly! She was kind to lend me a bicycle and to let me entertain my kids for dinner. I would go back and I recommend it.

    May 2014
  • Great location (with easy on foot access to downtown, campus and local supermarket); great price; and a very friendly host. The private entry to the room was also a good feature, as it meant I could come and go as I pleased.

  • Exactly as described and expected. It was a short stay since I was "home" around 2am and left around 8am but it did the trick. Walking distance from downtown. About what you'd expect if you crashed at a friend's house.

    April 2014
  • Great host and accommodations. Thank you, Kelly!

    April 2014
  • Was able to accommodate my stay on a short notice. Replied to messages in a quick and polite manner. Had I not noticed the bathroom light turned off I would of never known someone else was there the entire time I was.

    March 2014
  • Kelly was an awesome host and was very flexible to accommodate me last minute. I recommend future guests to stay at her home.

    March 2014
  • Kelly was welcoming and very accommodating during my short time at her comfortable house. I'd definitely recommend her place to others.

I'm a social introvert who loves people as much as my quiet time. I do a lot of doing, out and about, so I know a lot about this town. If there's something you want to find here, it probably exists, and I likely know about it. Or people exist who want to get it started with you. Lately I am exploring the glorious forests around Bloomington while I work towards a thriving career as a Reiki Master Healer.
