Our sunny bungalow is in residential Old West Lawrence. It is 5 blocks to Downtown, a straight shot up the Hill to Memorial Stadium, and well within walking distance to the rest of Campus. While you will be close enough for creating special memories, there are plenty of private spaces to discover and enjoy in this cozy, well-designed home. Linens are purposely white cotton, so bleached, and surfaces are disinfected. We feel our place is best suited for people with daily planned activities.

The space
Please note: High-Speed data is only available 3 business days after your confirmed reservation so if your stay starts before then, kindly bring your own "hot spot" for those few days. Thank you for understanding!

This 950-square-foot gem is fully remodeled and pristine. She is a beautiful "middle sister" to two identical bungalows on either side, all lovingly built in the 1920s by a father for each of his three daughters. While historic and charming, it is open and airy and completely update-to-date, from mechanicals to finishes.

Where you’ll be

Lawrence, Kansas, United States

Tree-lined, streets, painted ladies, and Edwardian/Victorian/vernacular architecture abound in this gold nugget neighborhood. The neighborhood is so historic that the first homes built here are survivors of Quantrill's 1863 Raid of Lawrence. Old West Lawrence is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A walkable neighborhood within reach of Downtown Lawrence, it's a great place for a stroll. The Public Library, Municipal swimming pool complex, parks, and Downtown are 5 blocks away. Campus is a short 13-minute walk.

I like dog-walking, market research, my home, and travel! I cannot live without coffee with cream, my dog, Ben, my husband, Charlie, and my 3 kids (usually), in that order.

I love Northern California, Vermont, and pretty hiking trails, anywhere in the world.

In Memoriam (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) : We often travel with my 80 year-old (young) mom, Penelope, to keep us calm and positive. She's inspirational.
