Because the Loft is so spacious compared to a hotel room and the kitchen makes it easy to cook, we know it is tempting to invite more people over for a party, meal or stay especially since we have wedding parties. However, if you are having more people than the guests you have registered, you will need to get prior approval from us and we can add on additional guest fees or a party room fee or we will need to charge your security deposit after the fact if we aren't notified.
- We require a "trusted, verified" profile with YOUR photo validating your identity prior to acceptance of your reservation request. Please include a note about the purpose for your stay.
- We are flexible on check-in/check-out times IF they do not conflict with another guest's reservation.
- Our guests can not smoke in the Loft or in the building - we are a smoke free building.
- Since we have neighbors, this Loft is not available for large, late night group parties. Photo shoots, bridal ready room group usage and filming uses must identify that in the request and special pricing will apply.
Great place and location. Lots to see and do in the area. Jori was an excellent host; flexible and accomodating. I look forward to staying here again.
My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Clarke's loft and loved our stay. Jori made us feel welcome before and during our stay. She brought us fresh flowers. We enjoy cooking, so Jori made sure we had great cookware. The loft is very comfortable and the bed was great, we were very rested. Jori is warm, friendly, and very hospitable. Thanks Jori!
Great Apt! excellent location. The apt is big, really nice loft design in an industrial building. Very clean and quiet.
Fantastic studio! The condo is spacious, sunny, clean, and very comfortable. The location is perfect, with access to many restaurants, coffee houses, and more. Jori was a welcoming and thoughtful host. Highly recommended!
Jori was a wonderful host! She responded promptly to any questions I had prior to our stay and met us upon arrival to give us keys. The loft itself is very nice- clean, spacious, sunny and very close to Summerfest grounds. Parking available if needed. She even left us some snacks for our stay. I highly recommend the loft and will definitely stay here again on future visits to Milwaukee.
Great loft so close to Summerfest. My family and I had a great time and Jori was extremely accommodating. Left breakfast and snacks for us. Very clean and spacious. Will definitely be looking into staying here for future visits to Summerfest.

About the Host, Jori
Clarke grew up in Europe and loves talking to people using his language skills if we have a foreign visitor - German, French, Spanish, some Arabic, Italian and Portuguese. He can instantly make people feel right at home and happy to help with any visit recommendations. Jori has owned multiple software companies so loves to speak geek! We enjoy travel, kids, dogs, the environment, new ideas and tech gadgets - ok so maybe not Clarke on the whizzy do mechanical things...he still has our daughter program his cell phone and she's only in 4th grade. But hey, if the world floods he's your man since he is passionate about wooden sail boats and can sail anything that floats! Welcome to our city and we look forward to making sure you have a pleasant stay.
