About This Listing
Reserve for at least nine guests, and I will leave the entire house for your use!
There are four beds in three bedrooms upstairs and two beds in the finished basement. )Airbnb does not allow more than one bedroom to be listed unless I list it exclusively as an entire-home rental). One bedroom has a queen bed, another has a queen bed with a full size bed on an overhead loft. The finished basement has a full-size bed and a twin bed. The Master bedroom (available with whole-house rentals only) has a queen bed.
I will make sure your needs are accommodated!
Guests tell me my home is a relaxing place to unwind after a busy day of work or travel. Many of them also end up sleeping in late and lingering around! My home is spacious, quiet, and full of light including a sunroom and a kitchen with wall-to-wall skylights.
My home is at the end of the cul-de-sac of a very safe and quiet neighborhood convenient to Interstate 74. Downtown is only a mile away. I have a mountain bike for guest use around town and to ride the trails in nearby Brum Woods.
High-speed (6Mbs) WiFi available, and you are welcome to use my 60" Smart HDTV or my home theater projector (both with Blu-Ray DVD players) and Roku 3 with Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, etc!
When it is cold, you may park your car in my attached garage and build a fire in the fireplace!
Other Things to Note
You will have a full refrigerator shelf available for your food. There is an empty cabinet available for your use.
I have a Keurig coffee maker for your use. You are welcome to bring your own K-cups, but I do have a selection available in the drawer just underneath the machine. I only ask $1 for each unit to maintain the supply.
Please leave the place as clean as you find it when you arrive. That includes the dishes :-)
No pets allowed because i keep the place clean as possible. I am willing to consider exceptions such as service dogs.
Kid's room with two full size beds (one on overhead loft with ladder access. Recommended for agile adults and children).
Great room in a very nice neighborhood. This was my first Airbnb experience, and it was great! Michael was nice (in the little interaction I did have with him - I was gone a lot). I felt at home.
The place is amazing, it's got a large, clean and well designed living room and kitchen. Bedroom is cozy. The host Michael is a technical expert and he's so friendly. I love the place and I'll definitely recommend it.
We had a lovely time staying in Michael's house. It was a wonderful, tranquil respite on our travels. Although we didn't get to meet Michael, he was very communicative and attentive to our needs prior to and during our stay. We would happily stay again if we are ever in the area.
Michael, was out of town during our visit, he checked with us by text to be sure we were on our way. We asked about place for dinner and he was able to recommend a great place. Our accommodations were as listed. This was our first airbnb booking and we will do it again if possible. We were not at the house much, a little tv time then bed, shower and out the door. We were pleased with our overall experience.
Great place! This our go to place when traveling East. We have stayed at Michael 's home at least 3 times and each time it has been a wonderful experience. Recommend highly for a low key, peaceful stay.
We were running late on our arrival time, and Michael very graciously accommodated us by leaving the lights on and the door unlocked until we arrived. His place was tidy and welcoming and a few signs helped us figure out where to set up and settle in.
The neighborhood is very quiet, peaceful. There's a big open field out behind the house and a nice deck/yard, which we did not use. Both beds were super comfortable. Bathroom and kitchen were fine, too.
We met Michael briefly in the morning and had a pleasant chat before he left for church and my party left for brunch at a local cafe (btw, we highly recommend you stop by Big Four Cafe before heading out of Batesville - get the biscuits and gravy!).
Overall, just what we needed for a quick stopover before continuing on our trip. And the price is very right.
Michael is the best host! His house is spacious and comfortable ever! You would enjoy staying at his house! Everything is perfect and I would stay at his house later when I visit this area!
About the Host, Michael
I love hosting and and meeting airbnb guests in my home, and I sometimes cook with them! I love cooking with friends, family, guests, and hosts, and trying out new foods, cuisines, and restaurants. I am always on the go, and spend very little time at home, whether it is in my own home or when traveling. Also, I much prefer to stay in a real home with interesting people rather than be isolated in a hotel room.
In addition to cooking and eating food, I am also an avid forager of wild edible foods and love connecting with others interested in foraging.
I also love the water--whitewater kayaking, canoeing, and sea kayaking.
I am also a runner, and welcome airbnb guests to join me for running!
I also love to travel and enjoy sharing ideas for new destinations worldwide.
