5/5 Excellent

A great Thanksgiving in the perfect home
To start, my wife and I were considering becoming squatters we loved the house so much. Plenty of room, it was just 3 of us staying and my daughter, a student, stayed a night or 2. We really could of had 5 more people comfortably. My biggest regret is the weather was a bit cool to take advantage of the deck outside, which was beautiful. I would stay there again in a heart beat and would highly recommend.
Stayed 5 nights in Nov 2021

Great place in West Lafayette
Nice & clean & roomy house. Wish we could have taken advantage of the deck but the weather didn’t cooperate. Would recommend!

Everything was PERFECT
The Gathering Place was AMAZING! Even before I booked, Jodi was wonderful at communicating…answering all my questions. The house is absolutely perfect! Lots of space, VERY clean, and EVERYTHING you need!!! And…so very close to Purdue’s campus. My 25 year old daughter said she would like to “buy it just as it is…everything is perfect!” We came to Purdue for the Minnesota football game & after halftime, it stared pouring. No problem though since we had The Gathering Place to go back to! We were able to have 20 people inside for postgame activities and food! Boiler Up! Thank you so much to our gracious host, Jodi! She thought of EVERYTHING!!! We are so excited to stay at The Gathering Place again in December for our son’s graduation :)

5/5 Excellent

Last minute weekend getaway
Jodie was quick with responses and even had a sweet arrival gift for us. Despite booking last minute, we had no issues whatsoever. Her home was even better that described. Peaceful and comfortable. We would certainly love to return. Thank you Jodie!
