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 feature 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. 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. WiFi passwords will be provided 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 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. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

5/5 Excellent

Sister trip antique shopping
This is a great house to stay in. My two sisters and I were in Terre Haute antique shopping. I saw the listing on this house and knew we wanted to stay in it. It is just as listed, roomy but so homey feeling. You feel right at home just stepping through the door. Thank you Betsy for such a well stocked kitchen. If you plan on doing any cooking and forget something I'm sure it will be there. Betsy, we want to thank you for your help getting the TV to work and giving us some history on the place. We did not have any kids with us, but if you plan on staying there with kids, they will absolutely love the fenced in back yard. There are so many things for them to play on and of course space for the adults to relax while they are watching them. If we get a chance to come back to Terre Haute we will definitely stay there again.

5/5 Excellent

Sister Vaca
It is a very unique place to stay. Much better than staying in a hotel. We all loved being able to sit in the backyard and just enjoying ourselves.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful getaway
We loved our short getaway and would definitely come back. My children loved all the things to do in the backyard. My husband and I were also fans of the patio table and fire pit. We definitely appreciated the owner's willingness to provide advice about the area and loved the book of recommendations that she provided.
