Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Spacious, artsy home, dubbed the "Rooster House", is located just 2 blocks from the heart of downtown Lawrence. Our home is within walking distance of all downtown events, arts, music, and restaurants historic downtown Lawrence has to offer. Walk to Granada, Free State Brewery, The Pig, The Lawrence Arts Center--and much more!

The space
Located on historic Rhode Island street, the house has free street parking as well as private alley parking, which comes in handy as many cars park on our block for downtown events. We are a 3 minute walk from the Granada, Replay Lounge, Bottleneck, and Jazzhaus. The Arts Center is around the corner, and just a block from that is the farmer's market which runs from early spring to late fall.

Please be aware there is no bathroom upstairs with the two main bedrooms. The main bathroom is off of the twin non-conforming bedroom on the main floor as well as the half bath which is off of the kitchen.

The house is spacious and open with skylights in the kitchen. Located on the main floor is 1.5 bathrooms, 1 non-conforming bedroom with twin trundle and twin pull out underneath, fully equipped kitchen, living area and pool room. The sixth guest can sleep on the sofa which pulls down to fit a full size bed.

The house does not have a formal dining space, however we utilize the space as a pool room and eating nook for your entertainment. The pool room has a high top two person table as well as a smaller table with folding 5 chairs, perfect for game night. The living room has a comfy sectional, flat screen TV (equipped with 100 mbps internet and Amazon FireStick), complimentary Netflix, and also YouTubeTV which has over 70 channel options for viewing.

This main bathroom with a shower is only accessible through the twin bedroom, so if you have a larger party size this may affect those sleeping in the downstairs bedroom. The half bath is easily accessible off of the laundry room downstairs. Please consider this layout if you have mobility issues.

The second level has 2 bedrooms, one king bed overlooking Rhode Island and the other with a queen bed. The stairs are quite steep, as it is a preserved and historic staircase. Please note that there is no bathroom upstairs, although one of the bedrooms adjoins the main bathroom downstairs.

Please note that this house is historic, and parts of the home are settling. The décor and furnishings have character and are not "just out of the package" quality. Each room has unique artwork from several local artists, you may find yourself feeling more like a townie than a guest of Lawrence when you leave.

Infants and children are permitted with prior approval and/or deposit depending on length of stay and party size.

Where you’ll be

Lawrence, Kansas, United States

Our house is nestled on quiet Rhode Island street, just 2 blocks from the heart of downtown Lawrence. The place is a quick walk or ride share from historic downtown events, restaurants, and shops. Just a few quick blocks west up 11th street, you’ll find yourself at the University of Kansas, overlooking the football stadium.

The neighborhood is residential, and we ask that if you plan on being rowdy or meeting up with large numbers of people, that you do so downtown. On both sides of our home we have families living next door. If we receive any complaints of noise or parties, we will evict the guests immediately.

Midwestern girl from Lawrence, Kansas. I travel frequently for family, vacation, and kickball tournaments. I currently have three listed properties on Airbnb in Lawrence, Kansas. They are all fully owned and operated by myself and my boyfriend Louis. Together we are constantly working to improve the condition of our homes while sharing the city and communities of Lawrence we hold dear to our hearts. We find that our priority as hosts, is to give our guests a comfortable, clean, and safe home. The aspect we find so rewarding, is sharing our homes and conveying the uniqueness that is Lawrence, Kansas. All of the artwork in our homes are from local artists, all of the renovations that are done are done by ourselves or outsourced to a local business. We find it extremely important to conserve the nature of our community by providing and sustaining a home that is appropriate for the surrounding area.
