  • Came in to see niece and football game at Purdue. Property location was convenient.


    Bathroom lights were inadequate. The owners brought us bulbs but they didn't work in the bathroom. There was no soap for the shower, no dishwasher soap and no dish soap. Dishwasher was broken. Beds were comfy but you had to walk through one bedroom to get to the other.

  • A Unique Place


    They have made the most out of the floor-plan of this property! Our family of four were very comfortable here. Everything worked and the pool table was a lot of fun!

  • Cute place!


    Could have been a little cleaner and there are a few minor upkeep issues that could be taken care of but a cute place with lots of character!
