                We loved the house. It was right on campus in a residential neighborhood. We shared the house with another couple and were very comforable. The only reason it received 4 out of 5 stars is that the only bathroom is on the first floor. But the house is very nice. We will stay here again if we get the chance. It was 80 out all weekend and we spent a lot of time eating and playing cards in the back yard.

                The location of this home is prime for KU campus. The home is as described and was roomy enough for two grandparents and young grandsons. Furnishings were adequate with comfy beds. Kitchen was quite small as was the only bathroom. What we learned was that a bathroom down rather steep stairs from the bedrooms doesn't work well for us older folks - though the safety lighting was excellent. It snowed and management was there first thing in the morning to clean walks.

                Spent a week in Lena's Cottage over Christmas and it was wonderful! There were 5 of us and it worked out well. Visiting family and it gave us a great place to spread out without all our stuff taking over someone's house. Very clean and newly remodeled. Had a queen blow up mattress that worked great. Got a snow storm while we were there and the owner was there first thing in the morning clearing the sidewalks, driveway and front porch. Short walk to campus made for great walks in the snow. Very close to downtown! Can't say enough about how enjoyable it was. Definitely beat being cramped in a couple hotel rooms! Owner very easy to deal with.

                4 friends and I were coming to Lawrence for a wedding and rather than staying at a hotel we found this place. It was very clean and close to everything. We had a lot of fun playing cards around the table and frisbee on the KU campus that's less than a block away. The house had an iron, a hairdryer, some mini soaps and lots of books on Lawrence so it was basically like staying at a hotel for half the price and 3 times the space.

                Very comfortable and so easy to prepare your own food while attending a conference at KU. The Kansas Union is a 5-7 minute walk from the back door, and Massachusetts Ave. (downtown) is a 10 minute walk in the other direction. Would definitely recommend Lena's Cottage.

                I booked this for our son's graduation from KU in May, 2103. The house is in a perfect location, virtually on campus and right by the football stadium. It's less than a mile walk from the heart of Mass Avenue, too. Four of us stayed there and we found it extremely comfortable. It's an old house, but the recent remodeling is excellent, especially the kitchen and the bath. There are two parking space in the back and the owner encouraged us to use the front and back yards for parking during the graduation. We had a nice garden party right after the graduation, one of many in the neighborhood. Two concerns we had going in were the single bathroom and the house being in the middle of mostly student housing. The bathroom issue worked fine for 4, but I guess it could be a problem if you didn't share nicely or you were on a compressed schedule. The nearness of rowdy college students celebrating the end of the semester turned out to be more fun than a problem. The A/C drowned out most of the late night reveling and during the day there were so many parties going on that our guests could walk from one to the other. I highly recommend this house for graduation, football or basketball weekends or just a nice visit with your KU student. It was by far the best accommodation and most convenient that we had during our 4 years of visits from Texas to Lawrence. Maybe there will be graduate school in our future!

                My family and I spent an extended weekend at this house. The house was great! My wife loved the kitchen. The beds were extremely comfortable. Easy walk to Mass street to visit downtown Lawrence which is fun. Would stay here again.

                This house was great for four adults.It's in a quiet neighborhood, well positioned between campus and main streets (so you can get to and from the house easily, if you're still learning your way around town). Much more room - and more convenient - than a hotel, with a kitchen and laundry. We'll definitely be back when we're next in Lawrence!

                I visited Lawrence for 5 nights in late November to visit family and friends. In the past I'd always stayed at the Eldridge but they were booked so I took a chance with VRBO and found Lena's Cottage. I will never stay anywhere else on future visits if I can can help it! The accommodation is simply amazing...comfortable beds with lovely linens, top of the line kitchen and bath remodel and 5 star attention to detail by the owners. This house has it all including easy to access parking for two cars off the alley at the back. The only thing to be aware of is that the bathroom is downstairs off the kitchen and the two bedrooms are upstairs. There also isn't a lot of storage in the bathroom which could be tricky if there are multiple people sharing, but really these are tiny issues.

                We stayed for 2 nights/3 days in this lovely house and don't have a thing negative to say. And while a couple in love doesn't need much more than each other, the house would've filled the needs of anyone. We only ventured outside its doors twice and that was just to find sustenance. Luckily, it's located close to both eateries and markets so our emergence from bliss did not last unduly long. I'd recommend the house to anyone, and if you're not already in love, perhaps the energy left behind by us will bring you that much closer. Also, it should be noted that the beds, countertops, and couches are all comfortable and well-built.
