This loft towers over all of the Old Downtown, featuring a private suite which used to house the Odd Fellow and Union meetings.

Sit in the private courtyard, bike or walk the streets, grill out your favorite treat, watch the trains pass through town, photograph, paint or make music from the loft. Its everything that your heart desires. For unique memories, special occasions, or other agenda, please ask me to assist. I can make your stay, everything you want it to be and more.

Why Lisa Barker chose Milan

This apartment used to house the Odd Fellows, Union Meetings, and other important community events. It was a place of stature, authority, and class. When it turned residential, added class, character, and style complimented the already dominating features of the tallest building in Old Downtown Milan. The entire property, from the stern brick, to the green plush courtyard and white steel gates, commands respect. The only way to master it, is to dive in and partake of the elegance and ambiance of the apartment, the building, the property, and the town.

This is a spectacular work in progress. There is a painters easel and music stand on site, with raised presentation area in the loft. The windows are grand and make for an excellent area from which to paint, have morning coffee, write, read, and ponder. The loft was set up for the romantic who's dream is to create a memory for a special loved one. But it is not exclusive and is suitable for a smaller family. Thanks for your consideration. You won't be disappointed.

Quiet, Romantic, Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at the loft. We have rented through Home Away and VRBO several times, and our experience has always been positive. This stands out from everything we have ever rented. How can you miss a place so badly that you've only stayed in a few days? It was perfect. Lisa and Bobby didn't miss a single detail. It was our Anniversary get away. There was snacks, drinks, roses, chocolate... music playing softly. Such dedication to make our trip memorable and special.. You have to stay here! It is beyond amazing, and so are the hosts. If you are in to city life and noise. . This isn't the place for you. If you want a perfect, romantic get away without distraction... It's right here, and you will love it! Thank you Lisa and Bobby for everything.

Owner's Response: Here at the loft, it's all about creating Memories. A friend once told me, and it made perfect sense to me, that Gifts are soon forgotten, even after special dates and anniversaries. But, if one can create a memory to accompany that special date, it will last a lifetime. After all, when we grow older and all of the material things are no longer important, we still will have our memories. If you would like to help create a special memory for your loved one, let us help you. The reason Glenda was ecstatic was because she is a great communicator. Thank you, Glenda. Can't wait for your return.

The perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing gem in the middle of nowhere. The Loft was the perfect setting for my wife and I to get away for a couple of days and just be alone. Great ambience, atmosphere, and very quiet. We will definitely be going back and recommending our friends to visit as well.

Charming with all the style and conveniences you'll appreciate!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Bobby were top notch hosts. They made us feel welcome and made sure that our stay was the best it could be. A couple weeks before arriving Lisa called and asked about the ages of my children as she wanted to make sure that they would have things to do while we were there. It is beautifully decorated and very cozy. Lots of history with the the loft as well as the museum next door depicting the Milan state championship basketball team. Would defiantly go again and recommend them to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Keith and the children got Bobby and I to thinking about how we could draw more interest in the two apartments and all that Milan has to offer. Because of our experience with Keith and the children, we suddenly realized that the second apartment should be set up with children in mind...and particularly those wanting to come see the Milan museum, The Ark, and The Creation Museum in "teams". Because of Keith we have set up the second apartment with multiple beds to accommodate larger numbers of guests. Thank you, Keith for the inspiration! "The Team Room", online soon.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this loft have done a great job of restoring an old store right next to the Milan 1954 Hoosiers Museum. The refinished original woodwork takes you back to a different era, but the fixtures, cabinetry, and appliances provide modern comfort. It's a great place if you're looking for a warmer experience than just another hotel. It's just over an hour's drive to the Ark Encounter and about 30 minutes to the Creation Museum. This place gets you away from traffic and is an enjoyable drive through rural Southeast Indiana.

Beautiful hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

This loft apartment is absolutely beautiful. Our group was a little larger than what the loft is intended for, so we had to use an extra mattress on the floor, but even that was very comfortable!

Plenty of room, in this "New York Style" apartment. All the comforts of a small town, with the style of a big city.

We were there visiting the Creation Museum (40 minute drive) and the Ark Encounter (90 minute drive) but it was well worth the little extra drive time, to be able to stay here.

Great place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway! If I ever get to go back to the area, I will definitely be checking to see if this place is available.

Owner's Response: I loved having you and was so glad that you also made time to visit the Milan 1954 State Basketball Champion Museum...the town from which the movie, "Hoosiers" starring Gene Hackman, was inspired. It was a little bonus. We are very proud of our little Milan town and it warms our hearts to hear that folks like you enjoyed it so much!
