Relax and recharge in a quiet small town with a park next door. With a hand-painted Where the Wild Things mural and a player piano in this room, this room is fun and comfy! Full size memory foam mattress, access to kitchen, dining room, living room, patio, firepit, free wi-fi, cable TV / apple TV w/ Netflix / Youtube etc.


Peace, quiet, sweet animals, and free Wi-fi! Also, a large, flat screen TV w/ Netflix, a DVD player, and a gas fireplace all open to you. Smoke-free, and there is also a small park literally right next door. :)

I've lived here for almost 14 years, so I know Bloomington well. I can recommend nature trails, cultural events, and great restaurants and shops! You will be abt 5 minutes from Lake Monroe, which is Indiana's largest lake! so the beach and lakeside trails are just 5min away. :)

The Wild Things Room
There is a hand-painted mural of Where the Wild Things are in this room, plus a vintage player piano. A room with character! Futon mattress on a wood frame.

I also have another room that is available - search for 'zen room' at this address.

1 full bath and a 1/2 bath.

My kitchen is your kitchen - feel free to buy food and put it in the frig, and cook if you want. I am also happy to provide a lite breakfast for you on your first day free of charge if you let me know what sort of things you like. (eg, I don't want to get eggs for you if you're vegan, or bread if you're gluten-free)

The house was originally built in the 1800s, with a couple of additions later. There's hardwood in the bedrooms and living room, and tile in the kitchen and dining area - no carpet.

I have 3 cats and one small dog, so if you have allergies, not a good fit. I Roomba a lot but there always still seems to be some renegade fur!

Harrodsburg is a small town - super quiet, and in my 4 years here have never had a problem with the neighbors or any sort of theft or anything. No bus comes here tho, so you would need a car. I have a HUGE yard, and my place is a great place for someone to just relax and decompress. My patio is really relaxing, and I also have a fire pit if you want to roast hot dogs or marshmallows.

It's abt 10 min to the closest grocery store (Kroger) and abt 20 min to downtown Bloomington. There is a gas station/ convenience store right down the street. I am literally right next to a lovely little park and the community center. The drive-in is also just down the road, about 5 minutes away.

The entire house may also be available if you inquire about that - see my 'Historic House' listing.

Staying in the Wild Thing Room is a delight! The darling artwork, the comfy bed, ancient player piano, all make for a sweet stay. The home is eclectic (obviously an artist's home) and a delight for the eyes. There are 3 cats who pretty much leave you alone, and one, very lovable pug named Daisy, who loves to play and be cuddled. Despite this, the home is very clean and inviting - the animals just make it feel more homey. I agree with the host's recommendation that you choose another place if you are allergic to animals, but I had no problem with them at all. Although I stayed for just a short, overnight visit, I wanted for nothing in this charming home. The bed was soft, with extra linens and covers available in the closet, the bathroom was fully stocked with just about anything a traveler might have forgotten. The bath and shower have super wonderful water pressure and the whole room is very dreamy and lovely! Although I didn't use the kitchen, I must say it contained everything a traveler might need to prepare any meal. The entire home is full of fun things to look at and enjoy, inside and out. Rachel was attending a reunion the night I stayed there, so I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, however; she kept in close communication with me via texts and emails from the time I booked this room, two months earlier, to the time I left. She is a most gracious host - hopefully, I can meet her in person the next time I'm up that way! I most certainly will book again, and I highly recommend staying here!

The Wild Thing Room was a great value. I needed to be in Bloomington the following morning and just needed a place with wireless internet to spend the night. The bed was nice, and the internet worked just fine. I was surprised when a couple cats and a dog greeted me upon my arrival, but maybe I should have expected that. Anyway, they were all friendly, so it was no problem. Oh, and Rachael had bought some muffins to share, so I grabbed one on my way out in the morning. Thanks for opening up your home!

Rachel was an outstanding host. I stayed for a tad under a month while finishing a summer internship. She is a great person and introduced me to many other great people in Bloomington. She even gave me some snacks and my dog some treats for the drive back to NC. I would definitely recommend staying at Rachel's in Harrodsburg.

Rachael was such a nice and enjoyable host. She had a lot of knowledge of local and state history that I enjoyed hearing about. The room and bed were comfortable and she had pamphlets for things visitors may want to visit and experience while in the area. She has put a lot of thoughtfulness into providing the best experience for her guests.
