Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Since 2010, we have enjoyed renting Eddystone (559195) to our short term and executive stay guests. In October of 2015, we couldn't pass up a beautiful home just 2 blocks from Eddystone (926854). We have completely updated the home and are excited to offer our guests two amazing homes with completely different feels. We hope to have you as guests the next time you are in South Bend, Notre Dame and surrounding areas! ~Best, Sarah

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Option to rent both properties within 2 blocks of each other at a 10% discount. See Eddystone listing 559195
