Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Entire 2nd floor of this 1870’s Victorian. If you're looking for unique, authentic, spacious, cozy--this is it!

Quiet residential neighborhood, centrally located mere blocks to KU and historic downtown. Near parks and bus stops.

A separate entrance invites you to your private space--2 bedrooms, TV room, solarium, private bathroom with clawfoot tub for soaking, and rooftop deck set in a delightful yard with lush relaxing spaces.

Great for a private getaway, a relaxing space, or a work week.

The space
This space is the top half of an 1870's Queen Anne Victorian. It is spacious, full of light, has unique architectural features, abounds in ambiance, and yet is comfortable and cozy. This space is accessed via a private, locked entry.

Guests have private use of the entire upstairs including two bedrooms, a private bathroom, a solarium, and a rooftop deck. The downstairs may or may not be rented separately or occupied by the owner.

The king bedroom has windows on 3 sides. This room has a nice-sized closet, solid wood vanity and bedside table with lamp, solid wood king-sized sleigh bed, and a work space including a desk and executive-style chair. The lamps have two plug-ins on the base so you won’t ever have to search for plug-ins to charge your devices.

The queen bedroom has windows on 2 sides with a nice-sized closet that looks out onto the roof-top deck. Solid wood highboy dresser and authentic deacon's bench with a bookcase headboard. The lamp has two plug-ins on the base so you won’t ever have to search for plug-ins to charge your devices. There is a work desk with an executive-style chair.

The bathroom is large and spacious and fully stocked with plush towels, bathing necessities and extras, lighted make-up mirror, and a claw-foot tub for soaking or showering.

The common area has a TV with occasional chairs. The closet is stocked with safety items as well as extra rags for dirty jobs and cleaning products.

The solarium has a Keurig, a mini fridge, and a microwave.

The deck is a relaxing wonderland where you can hear the birds, watch the squirrels romp in the trees or just sit and listen to the water feature in the back yard.

Guests also have use of the back patio adjacent to a water feature as well as the front porch with a swing. The yard is a lush haven in the summertime with over 70 different blooming plants throughout the season in a shady wooded setting. Don’t expect a manicured yard space—this interior yard does not have a single blade of grass and has not seen a chemical in 35+ years. Furthermore those leaves are important just where they fall. If you’re looking for a place where you might hear the worms eating leaves at dusk in the spring, this is it!

Extra pillows and blankets are located in each closet with additional bedding in the king bedroom bench. An ironing board is located in the Queen closet. A hair dryer and magnifying, lighted mirrors are located in the bathroom and the Queen room.

Where you’ll be

Lawrence, Kansas, United States

Located in a quiet neighborhood just one block off Massachusetts (the main street of Lawrence), this secluded double lot is a treasure. Mere blocks from KU's Kansas Union or unique downtown shopping, its central location is a great asset. Bus stops are very near and Lawrence has taxi and Uber service.
