Our recently upgraded and spacious home spreads out over two levels and is located in the heart of best and safest neighborhood in Milwaukee, the Lower East Side. You're less than a 5 minute walk to Brady Street and a 5 minute drive to the heart of Downtown Milwaukee! There are tons of sleeping arrangements and we are perfect for large groups, bachelorette/bachelor parties, and corporate retreats. If you have a MASSIVE group (more than 16 people) just reach out. We have neighboring properties to accommodate everyone. Come see why everyone loves Milwaukee!
Setting expectations is crucial for us as hosts. As fellow travellers just like you, we rely on accurate and honest self-assessments by the host on their own properties to determine if the space is a good fit for our group. In an effort to not to embellish or oversell our property, we want to give you the good with the bad so that you are able to make an informed decision about your visit to Milwaukee.
Our property is an all original single family home in the Lower East Side of Milwaukee. We recently completed a large scale interior upgrade to the property and have completely redone the floors, paint, kitchen and bathrooms of the space. The home is a great fit for large groups, corporate retreats, bachelor parties, or bachelorette parties. The best aspects of the home are it’s size, location, and surrounding safety.
Below we will give you a verbal tour so you have a clear understanding of the layout of the home. Our property has 9 beds ( 5 King, 4 Full), two modern and gorgeous clean bathrooms, a living room areas that include a huge flat screen TV, and two large tufted leather sofas. There is a large dining area located off of the kitchen for all your friends to enjoy!
Guests have access to the complete house, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible in our house. When you first walk into the property, you will be in the open concept dining and kitchen space. There is a large modern rustic dining table in the living room with seating for 8. The kitchen is off to your left and has basics for cooking a simple meal. If you're planning something more large scale and elaborate, it might make sense to bring your own utensils and equipment to ensure you have everything you need.
To the left of the kitchen is the living space. There is a 50" flat screen TV, coffee table, and two large tufted leather sectionals. As a side note, our TV does not have cable, but it does stream Netflix, Hulu, and all your favorite online streaming applications. We generally prefer to walk to one of the two dozen amazing bars or restaurants in our neighborhood to watch big games.
The first bedroom is off of the kitchen and has two sets of full over full bunk beds. These are not your standard summer camp bunk beds. They are full sized hotel quality beds that can comfortably sleep two adults in each bed.
The second bedroom is on the other side of the kitchen and has a hotel quality king sized bed. On the main floor of the house there are five beds, two bedrooms, the kitchen, living room, and bathroom.
On the second story, there is a large nook with a king sized bed and two table lamps for you to use and enjoy. Walking down the second story hallway, you will see the second full bathroom and the last two bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king sized bed and desk for working. There is also a large all original exposed chimney in this room which gives an interesting accent. Full disclosure, the chimney had a leak that was repaired so the drywall on the ceiling is discolored. This shouldn't affect your stay but want to ensure that all idiosyncrasies are notated for our future guests. The second bedroom has two large king sized beds. There is one all original window in this room that we still haven’t gotten around to replacing so hopefully it doesn’t cause too much of an eyesore for your group. You will have access to the entire property for the duration of your stay

A brief disclaimer: If you are looking for a 5 star hotel or a very modern home, this would not be a good fit for you. We prefer to host our home to guests that are tech savvy and independent. If you are used to calling the hotel front desk while abroad, our home might not be a good fit. Our home is professionally cleaned, all linens professionally laundered and all surfaces sanitized before and after each guest. We have run into situations where guests transform themselves into home inspectors and send us a laundry list of various items wrong with our property. While we appreciate the care, we really want to reiterate that we are not a professional hotel chain and we are not offering a hotel-experience. The doors and windows have been upgraded in places but many of them all original. We are homeowners just like yourselves that are offering up our home to groups of travellers so they can enjoy our great city. Homes (especially 100 year old homes) have allowed thousands of people to pass through their doors over their lifespans with little to no issues. If issues do arise, please let us know so we can have them addressed for you quickly.
If you are an independent travel enthusiast that is looking for the ultimate gateway to Milwaukee, we are excited to welcome you to our home! We provide towels, sheets, and pillows, so you do not need to bring these things with you. We do NOT provide shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, body wash, face wash, wash clothes, cable television, (we have netflix attached to our TV), or laundry soap. If these things are important to you, please bring them when visiting our home. We want you to be comfortable when staying, so if you have any additional questions, please ask!
Pets are allowed only with prior consent and written approval and there will be an additional pet fee assessed, this helps offset the costs and requirements associated.
Street parking around the area is plentiful, the process is very simple you just need to apply for a free permit online. Once you’re booked, we will explain all the parking protocols.
