Topeka apartment description

Seeking month-to-month renter starting May 1, 2015 (rented through April 2015, but contact me for other Topeka short term options). This downtown hot spot offers central location and luxurious amenities. Across from the State Capitol, you can walk to Topeka's Library & Museums, shopping, churches, eateries and more.

According to the Historical Society, the three-story limestone beauty at 118 S.W. 8th was built in 1880 and the third floor was the original site for the Washburn University Law School when it was founded in 1903. The Dougherty shorthand school, also called Dougherty's Business College, first operated in the second floor of 118 S.W. 8th, then moved upstairs to the third floor after the law school moved out. Mike Fox, the owner of Celtic Fox pub below, developed the loft and saved some of the furnishings, including desks and large secretary, complete with cubbyholes that remain in the 3rd floor unit today.

A Ralph Lauren feel provided with leather couches, modern kitchen and Pottery Barn bedding complete the 3rd floor loft. Flexible stays of 2 nights to 3 months can be arranged with the current leaseholder. Internet access, Dish TV and parking through the nearby Crosby Garage are all included. Up to 4 sleeping guests and 8 dinner guests can be hosted in style...just ask Jody. She has been in the vacation rental business for over 10 years, and is proud to offer the ultimate in rental amenities and flexibility!

                          Manager info

                          About: I moved to Topeka from Colorado, and enjoyed being close to my Jayhawk at KU (Lawrence). I work with local Realtors in providing fabulous leasing experiences. My Winter Park vacation rental is still just a day's drive away, and many new Kansas friends have started to enjoy the trip west on I-70. Now I hope to introduce the Kansas experience to folks and family coming the other direction!

                          Why Topeka:
                          I love my downtown loft because it is close to everything in Topeka. It is historic and charming, yet has all the comforts a business or vacation traveler will appreciate.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          The loft is above two very popular pubs, so I enjoy the food, music and company simply by walking downstairs. I just toured the recently renovated state Capitol right across the street, and can provide unique benefits to travelers here on state or other business. My loft is very spacious and comfortable, with furnishings that lend a luxurious and upscale experience. Need a meal or shopping done during your stay? Ask me, and I'll try to help in any way!
