Great Experience...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to stay in this wonderful home for Duke vs Notre Dame weekend. The only bad part of the weekend was the result of the football game. Franklin communicated with me before our arrival and was available throughout our stay (didn't need much as everything was perfect). The home was extremely clean upon our arrival and a gift basket was left out on the dining room table. This was my sixth visit to South Bend for a football game; up until this point, we had always stayed in hotels. As I told Franklin when we left, I now know where the best place in town is.....we will be staying in this home for as long as Franklin makes it available! Clean house, decorated with ND spirit in the best location in town. This house has everything you need for a wonderful experience....including a wonderful owner.

This is a perfect rental house for any Notre Dame weekend. We stayed for graduation weekend and the location can't be beat. The house has everything needed and then some! The garage bar space was a big hit with everyone. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of towels and linens. The kitchen had everything we needed and we appreciated the welcome basket of treats and wine! Wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks for everything!
