If you’re looking for a wonderful place to stay near downtown with all the amenities, this Riverfront Retreat is for you.

Walking distance to Downtown, Promenade Park, the River Greenway trail, and the Landing, this charming home was fully renovated in 2019 with your needs in mind.

Our guests often comment on how close the house is to local amenities, the super comfortable king-size bed, and how surprisingly spacious the home is.

The space
The home features a comfortable living room, spacious dining room with seating for 4, brand new fully-stocked kitchen with large island, 2 bedrooms, and 1 full bathroom. We have a super simple checkout, so you can pack up and be on your way!

*The Most Important Information:

1) There is a staircase to access the bedrooms, and it's rather steep. This shouldn't be an issue for people of average mobility. The bathroom is located on the first level.

2) Please don’t book until you read the info under the map titled “more about this location”

3) Lastly, we are a strict no smoking or vaping house. There is a smoker’s pole in the backyard.

MASTER BEDROOM: The master bedroom has a king-size bed with down alternative comforter, dresser, and 2 closets. Each nightstand is equipped with a lamp and charging station. There is a white noise machine, remote-controlled standing fan, and blackout curtains. It is very dark and quiet, and guests RAVE about how comfortable the bed is.

SECOND BEDROOM: The second bedroom features a double bed, dresser, closet, and space for a double air mattress or pack n play (provided by us with prior notice). The nightstand has a white noise machine, lamp, and charging station. There is also a desk and standing fan.

KITCHEN: The beautiful new kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, full refrigerator, brand new dishwasher, microwave, and coffee station. We've stocked the cabinets with everything you'll need to whip up a home-cooked meal, with space left over to store your own items. We don't have specialty appliances like a blender or crockpot, but we've got pots, pans, measuring cups, whisks, olive oil, and glasses for beer, wine, and champagne! We provide ground coffee and tea (Earl Gray, English Breakfast, and herbal), sugar, honey, and half and half, along with a coffee grinder if you'd like to bring (or buy) your own beans.

KIDS: We're kid-friendly with a pack n play, kids toys and books, high chair, potty seat, and kids plates, utensils, and cups. There is a playground directly across the street at an elementary school, and Promenade Park is the perfect outing for little ones (bring bathing suits in the summer!)

RENOVATION: The house was recently renovated. Despite the renovations, this is still an old home. Some of the floors are unlevel, and the stairs are quite steep.

AMENITIES:
Smart TV with Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Plus. Free washer and dryer. Board games, playing cards, plus a book of dining and activity recommendations, maps, and brochures.

PARKING:
There is free street parking right outside the house. We do not have offer off-street parking, and parking in the yard isn't allowed.

Where you’ll be

Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States

You'll be just 2 blocks from the brand new Promenade Park - part of Fort Wayne's Riverfront development. The park features a bar and cafe, state-of-the-art playground, tree canopy walking path, kayak and bike rentals, trail access, and a creek-style water feature for kids to play in during warmer months. The park has been a nonstop hit since the day in opened, and has even received national media attention.

Cut through Promenade Park, and you'll hit the Landing - a brand new development featuring a pedestrian street, murals, and brand new restaurants and shops. Just beyond the Landing is the rest of Downtown.

As for the Wells Street Corridor, it's is an exciting mix of new and old businesses and restaurants. The house is 1 block from a popular mexican restaurant. A bit further up, you'll find a charming used book store, a classic diner, a hip new plant shop, and a quirky Army supply store. The house is just minutes from a wonderful brewery as well (there is an empty growler in the kitchen!).

The house is situated directly across from an elementary school, so you’ll hear school kids playing during the week.

We have a whole list of our favorites places to grab a bite or drink in the house manual, or you can check out our favs on our Instagram @RiverfrontRetreat.

**Please note that the house is located in an urban setting. This means there is quite a bit of foot traffic and car traffic going by the house during the day. Like any non-suburban neighborhood, there can be crime and people who make you feel uncomfortable. We recommend being aware of your surroundings after dark and not leaving valuables in your car. We have a camera on the front and back porch that is always recording, for the safety of our guests. We don’t say this to scare anyone away, because it’s a wonderful location, but some guests may not be used to this type of setting. After 100+ guests, we have never had an issue with car break-ins, guest harassment, or any other guest-targeted crime. Please book if you love the inside of the house and want to be close to downtown amenities and can overlook a transitional neighborhood. Our neighbors keep to themselves and expect our guests to do the same.

I live with my husband and 2 sons in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. I'm an online service provider, lover of IPAs and casual bike rides, and passionate about the exciting growth of our city. My husband and I have been hosts on Airbnb since 2012, back when it was just a spare bedroom in our 1200 sq ft home. We love helping visitors discover all Fort Wayne has to offer - especially in the art and food scene!
