About this listing
My Arts and Craft home is located near the UW-Milwaukee campus, restaurants and public transportation. It provides a comfortable place decorated with antiques and local art. Short-term guests enjoy a light breakfast. Feel free to let me know your needs to use the kitchen (microwave available). This includes guests who stay less than one week. Garage parking available.
Arts and Crafts home bordering the Cambridge Woods. A beautiful area that attracts bikers, walkers, and a variety of interesting birds and other wildlife. You can enjoy a walk in the woods which has rare plant species and unique native plants. It is considered to have one of the most bio-diverse natural areas in the Milwaukee River Greenway. The distance of a few blocks along the walking path is the entrance to Hubbard Park which has a Beer Garden and entertainment on Wednesday nights in July from 6:30 -9:00 pm. The UW-Milwaukee campus is eight blocks away. My 1928 Arts and Craft house still has the original wood buffet with leaded glass doors in the dining room. The entire house has refinished hard-wood floors and trims have been preserved or refinished. Antiques and local artists' work will be found throughout the house. The kitchen has been recently remodeled by a local designer and other local artists have contributed to its unique and beautiful arts and crafts style. The bedroom is furnished with antiques and a variety of interesting pieces of art. There is a single bed and the bathroom is next to the bedroom. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower which is only used by the guest. Guests will receive a beverage and a snack on arrival. Breakfast will include pancakes, granola, fruit, and coffee or tea for guests who stay up to one week. Guests staying beyond one week will be provided with a light meal on arrival and coffee or tea in the morning. There is public local bus service a couple of blocks away. If you need information about transportation from the airport or Amtrak station, I'll be happy to supply you with that information.

I am from Milwaukee and I have been a teacher for many years working with both children and adults in various public, private and community educational sites. I enjoy having friends and family over for dinner, attending performances, art events, live music and biking. I also, enjoy meeting new people and I like to read about people that have inspiring stories to tell. I have most recently been teaching English at a Catholic Church that supports Burmese refugees from Thailand. Also, I am a Reading Teacher for Milwaukee Area Technical College teaching reading and writing in a pre-GED program.
I enjoy hosting guests from near and far. It is fun to introduce guests to all the special places and events Milwaukee has to offer.
