About Patrick Deneen

I am a faculty member at the University of Notre Dame and live in the neighborhood. A wonderful, historic, quiet, family-friendly neighborhood in the shadow of the Golden Dome. I walk or bike to campus most days.

Why Patrick Deneen chose Harters Heights

Nice, clean, affordable, and well-cared for by owners who live nearby. Located in the heart of a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood within easy walking, biking or driving distance of the University of Notre Dame, Eddy Street, and downtown South Bend.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house for Junior Parent Weekend at Notre Dame 🍀. We were able to bring our dogs and visit with our son. Patrick the owner answers any questions you have promptly, and he's very friendly. We would definitely stay at this house again.

Fun and convenient place to stay close to campus

  • 4 of 5

Seven of us stayed for the USC weekend and loved the place, as a group all would like to return. It is convenient to campus in a safe and quiet neighborhood (said "hi" to Digger Phelps when he walked by). In comparison to other places I've rented through HomeAway (Palm Springs, Gatlinburg), the house was not luxurious or fancy (thus 4 stars vs 5), however it was very clean and comfortable. My wife and I slept in the master-bedroom which had a comfortable mattress. Our 6'3" son slept in the sun-room, which he loved. The bathrooms were also very clean and the water pressure was good. We had seven adults, but not enough towels, so I would advise bringing an extra bath towel or two, along with soap/shampoo. Also, you'll need extra linen if you bring an air mattress. The kitchen was relatively small but also very clean and well supplied. While the house as a whole was very clean, the coffee pot had to be cleaned (small point). In these politically sensitive times, be prepared for the Reagan calendar (thumbs up all around) and an NRA coffee mug (not so popular). All were in favor of returning someday. The owners clearly want to make it a safe, comfortable, family friendly place to stay for a great ND experience.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great feedback. Sorry about the towels - I must have miscounted, but we always try to provide enough towels for our guests, and a few extra in case. Previous renters have left many items in the house over the years, so I can't promise every mug and calendar will be to people's taste, but I'll take a look and remove anything overly controversial! Lastly, we do clean the house thoroughly for incoming renters, but I must have overlooked the coffee pot. My apologies. That won't happen again. Glad you enjoyed your weekend!

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

I had a really good stay. Nice barbeque. It took me a couple of days to figure out how to turn on the shower. There is part of the faucet that you pull down. DOH!

Very comfortable, very clean. decent beds, and super responsive owner.
