Comfortable beds, fluffy towels, the rich smell of coffee brewing (or tea!) in the morning. Two minutes from freeway access, 5 minutes from downtown, one block from public transport. Urban situated with a secret garden oasis through the back door.

The Space

A beautiful, comfortable home, five minutes to downtown Milwaukee. Visit the world famous Harley Davidson museum and plant, the Milwaukee Art Museum designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, attend one of the numerous music festivals, and much, much more. Milwaukee is a park filled city on Lake Michigan, and you will not run out of things to see, do, and explore here.

The home is light filled and very comfortable. There is garage space for parking, and an enclosed garden with a fountain and a deck.

When I am away, you can rent the whole house - just inquire. Pricing is different for that option. The house has four bedrooms and two and a half baths. The kitchen/dining area is an open, beautiful space. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing meals.

There will be coffee and tea for you in the morning.

I am happy to advise you or direct you to any place you would like to visit in the city, or nearby. Wifi access is available at no charge within the house.

Guest Access

You are welcome to make yourself at home. Read or listen to music in the living room. Make yourself lunch in the kitchen, and enjoy eating in the dining room. A drink by candlelight on the deck is a great way to end the day.

Interaction with Guests

If you want company, I would love to chat! If you need a ride from the train station or airport, I will accommodate you if my schedule will allow.

The Neighborhood

The house is located in a residential/urban neighborhood, close to restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions, and two minutes access to the freeway. City bus lines are one block away.

Getting around

City bus lines are one block away. Parking available.

  • Kerry was a wonderful host and has a beautiful home! Great communication before and during our stay. We used the bus for most of our transportation, since we were in town for Summerfest and didn't want to deal with parking. Kerry lives a block away from a bus stop which made getting to our destinations very easy. I would recommend her home to anyone visiting Milwaukee!

  • Kerry is a wonderful host. She is laid-back and welcoming and also pays attention to the small details that make for a very comfortable stay. And she makes a great cappuccino! Unfortunately my trip was very short and it would have been nice to have a longer stay.

  • Kerry was professional and comfortable with having guest in her home. She is well traveled and a very interesting personality. Her home colors reflect the tropics and island living with BOLD colors. LOTS AND LOTS OF BOOKS everywhere! The home was new and well cared for. The bathrooms were in excellent condition and all of the kitchen appliances were newer. During our stay we also met another guest who is a ballerina from San Francisco. Very pleasant experience. I actually got to use some of my limited Japanese.
    We all shared the kitchen and there were no problems with space or bumping into each other.

  • Kerry was great! She was available if we needed her and had all the necessities for travel (iron, am coffee). Her home is comfortable and her patio and back yard garden are absolutely beautiful. We felt very comfortable there.

  • Great stay! My friend and I stayed in the 2 bed room. Was so clean and comfy as well as nicely decorated. We assumed Kerry was an artist. She made us feel quite welcome. Fresh flowers, chocolates, relaxing back yard. Will go again.

  • Kerry was a wonderful host! Her home was very comfortable and accommodating. She has beautiful eclectic art and furniture which made the atmosphere inspiring. It was winter, but her back yard looks like it would be a great place to hang out and relax in the summertime. Next time I am in Milwaukee, I will be seeking out Kerry's place again!

  • A truly accommodating host, Kerry made my overnight stay in Milwaukee a treat. I had a cozy, comfortable room and access to her spacious, beautiful home. She provided helpful tips on places to eat and neighborhoods to visit. Her home is located just outside of busier hotspots but they are easily accessible via car or bus ride. I additionally appreciated the use of her garage for parking. A really pleasant stay and oh yeah, great coffee!

  • Kerry is a great host! She picked me up from downtown and drove me to the house so I wouldn't have to take the bus the first night I was there. She was gracious and friendly, easy to talk to and responsive. Her house is clean, comfortable and close to town. I'd recommend her without reservations.

  • Three family members and I spent two nights here for a weekend. We occupied the two upstairs rooms. We were very happy with the space. Very quiet and clean. Kerry was very helpful and friendly. The price seemed very reasonable and the location was really convenient to anything in the downtown area of Milwaukee. It seemed like we were a maximum of ten minutes from just about anything.

  • Kerry has a beautiful, charming and very clean home! We would recommend her to anyone. We were close to all the places in Milwaukee we wanted to visit and Kerry was helpful in suggesting good eating places. She is a welcoming and charming hostess!

Complete house with master suite is available. Email me to discuss your needs. I will be happy to give you directions to whatever it is you plan to visit for the day. I can also make recommendations for the plethora of things to do in Milwaukee. It is a beautiful city! I have two dogs, but they stay with a friend when I have guests. If you are allergic to dogs, this would not be a good place for you.
