Nostalgic 1950s-Garage-Themed VRBO — Sleeps 10!

Family-friendly vacation home in Terre Haute
Are you a car buff? Or maybe you are nostalgic for some of those yesteryears. This place will tap into your memories of that old-time, small-town, filling station/garage. It's comfortable enough to feel like home but will entertain your senses too. Also, don't forget to say a big hello to Clair A. Haute, the dinosaur out front, or peruse the old car ads for one you remember.

We were a featured story on our local TV news. Check us out! Unfortunately this website will not allow us to place a web address to send you directly there so please look for WTHI TV based out of Terre Haute, IN and search for a story using search terms "Moore to the Story" and "Betsy Wilkinson".

You may have use of the whole place! There's a yard and lots of parking. This is not an event center, so please let us know if you would like to rent it that way. There are additional fees for this due to the extra cleaning and consumables used.

We are available by text or phone but are also usually a short five minute drive away.
We have given you access to your space via August Home Smart Locks so you’ll be able to come and go using your phone as your key.

We will provide WiFi passwords after you are checked in. We look forward to hosting you.

The neighbors are friendly but there will be a fair amount of foot traffic. When school is in there is a bus stop at the corner, so St Clair, our dinosaur has company then too. Occasionally dinosaur visitors will wander over but shouldn't be a problem.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to patios. Accommodations are furnished with sofa beds and dining tables. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

Guests can surf the web using the complimentary wireless Internet access. Smart televisions are featured in guestrooms.

The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Great place
A little loud by the railroad tracks. Otherwise very nice and clean.

Fun Weekend Hangout
Our group gets together annually for Indiana State's homecoming. The property allows us (all 50-somethings) to have fun and have our own space away from the hotels and bars of the Haute. It's not luxury, but it's comfortable, clean, and has a great yard area that would be great for kids and pets to run in. Don't be alarmed by the neighborhood. It may look a little beat, but it's quiet and we've had no issues. You will hear trains, but you will hear trains anywhere you sleep in Terre Haute.

Diane H.
Had a great time here. Loved the back yard with the tree house. Perfect for the 4 of us girls for a girl time during the festival. Better than a hotel. Beds were very comfortable and plenty of items to use just in case we forgot something. A lot of walnuts in the backyard. We will come back next year!

Fun property
It is such a cute property with so many fun details. The backyard is large and so good for families. You can hear the train but a sound machine app on your phone does wonders, we had no problems sleeping.

1/5 Terrible

Unhealthy and Noisy
Quaint idea and nice re-purposing but missing from the property description is the proximity to the train tracks, frequency of the trains, and road noise at the 4 way stop. Starting feeling sick after the first night. Checked out a day early and had to go to a hotel because we were suffering allergic reactions to the mold/mildew.
