It had sat dormant for about a year, and we are slowly bringing it back as a Guest House. The Sion Bass Guest House has 6 "Hotel Suite" style rooms, each with a luxury Spa Style attached bathroom. The building is equipped with smart locks, where you use a door code to check yourself in, and come and go as you wish. There is not a permanent staff on property, however, Mike and his family live a few blocks away. The home was built by Union Colonel Sion Bass, who commanded the Indiana 30th in the Civil War. The home is decked out with a Civil War theme, with pictures of Sion and his men. This is in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne, with Starbucks a Frisbee throw away, restaurants, and activity in all directions. Enjoy the common sitting/main gathering room on the main floor. Free parking is provided on site right behind the building. Our family lives just blocks away, and loves all downtown has to offer. We stop in once a day around Noon I am always available via the AirBnB App, and can be on property in minutes. We do not have a full time staff on property. While Mike stops in almost daily, there should be no expectation that there will be someone on property at any given time. We use a smart lock system with codes, where you will check yourself in and be able to come and go as it works for your schedule. The West Central Neighborhood encompasses all of downtown west of Calhoun Street, the heart of West Central is its urban residential area, the development of which began as early as the 1830s. Because of the historic and architectural significance of this area, the West Central Neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and was designated as a Local Historic District as early as 1985. The West Central Neighborhood was named the “Best Old House Neighborhood” in Indiana in 2010 by “This Old House Magazine.” The north side of the Neighborhood, along Berry and Wayne streets and Washington Boulevard, was where many of the City’s most prominent families built large, stylish homes. The area opens into downtown, with restaurants, shops, and countless ways to get lost in the city. The Historic Sion Bass House straddles the edge of the neighborhood and downtown. You can be out the door and on an adventure in minutes. Parking is steps away just in back of the building. We are on every major bus route in the city, and simply strolling distance to all downtown has to offer. In the summer, there is a large festival every single weekend. Our library is magnificent, and boasts the best genealogy department East of the Mississippi River (second in the nation, behind only Salt Lake City). The Barr Street Farmers Market every Saturday morning in the summer is a must see. You can be in the middle of everything in minutes.
