Beautiful, convenient updates include a cheerful, fully equipped kitchen with all expected appliances, laundry room with washer/dryer and plenty of room for gear, three large bedrooms (including ground floor master with large walk-in closet/dressing room) to sleep six adults or family members (sorry, no pets) on comfy, new mattresses, large bathroom with walk-in shower, double sink, and miles of mirror. Dining room/library area seats six in comfort to enjoy a meal at home whether cooked in the adjacent kitchen or carried in from one of the many local eateries. Or go out on our friendly little town and experience the offerings of family-friendly eateries, local microbrew, coffee shops or fine dining restaurants only a block away. While you stroll Middlebury’s downtown, take in the unique locally-owned shops and business, or stop in at the Chamber of Commerce for more helpful information to explore the regions many attractions, parks, trails, antiques, arts and more.

College sports fans will appreciate the easy 40 mile drive to University of Notre Dame games in neighboring South Bend, In. Others who prefer the "sport" of shopping may choose the seven mile trip to seek the deals at the Shipshewana Flea Market or explore the wide variety of the 100 plus shops spread through out the charming town next door, or take in a live performance at the Blue Gate Theater.

Once back “home”, enjoy the privacy-fenced, jewel-box backyard complete with outdoor, covered dining area, gas grill, deck, firering and lawn furniture. Enjoy a campfire with complementary fire wood or rock away your cares on the front porch swing in this friendly, quiet neighborhood. For more activity, just 75 feet from your door is the paved multi-use biking/walking trail that will allow you to traverse 17 miles of the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail connecting Middlebury, Shipshewana and Goshen, IN, as well as connections to Krider’s World Fair Gardens and the other gems of the Middlebury Parks and Trail System for closer to home recreation. Later, snuggle up in the comfy living room with TV, cable, Wi-Fi/Internet, games, puzzles or group crafts (Quilters and Scrapbookers welcome!).

Charming home
This is a cute and very clean house in a great location. Only negative is that stairs are extremely steep going upstairs. Owners communicated very well. Time did not allow us to take advantage of the beautiful backyard…..maybe next time 😊
