Where you’ll be

Lawrence, Kansas, United States

Located in East Lawrence which is considered the “artsiest” neighborhood in Lawrence. The house is in a quiet, well-established neighborhood on a tree-lined street with an eclectic mix of modest homes - some old, some remodeled, and some newly constructed. The house is within walking distance of downtown shops and restaurants, several city parks, and the Burroughs Creek bike path.

Our Story:
We created the Lazy Loft Studio the first year we were married and it was rented to KU students for 11 years. It first listed on Airbnb in 2017.

We purchased the Art House in 2018 from a former Lawrence artist. It was his home for over 30 years. He did all the unique tile work throughout the house. And it first listed on Airbnb in the summer of 2018.

Erik is a high school teacher for the past 20 years and is a jack of all trades. Sarah is a Practice Administrator for an Anesthesia group and a Photographer.
We spend much of our free time outdoors and love to camp in our vintage Airstream with our two kids.
