There are four steps (with railing on both sides) to get from the parking lot to the room, but one step if you went around. I believe limited mobility persons would find it somewhat passable, but not ideal. ...moreless

The property is located on rural land, within walking distance to Clinton lake. Whereas Lawrence has shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and everything you would expect from a college town, the lake provides great boating, fishing, windsurfing, kite boarding, beaches, hiking, and general outdoor fun...right in your back yard.
Year Purchased: 8
About the owner: Pattie and John have lived at Rancho Verde for 8 years, and in Lawrence for 25. In their spare time they refurbish old homes. Along with the 'sister house' you will be staying in (described below) there is a second house on the property. This one was the childhood home of New York Yankees great, Ralph Hauk, who managed and played on the team during the hay day of the Yankees storied career.
Why the Owner Chose Lawrence, KS, USA:
This home is one of two remaining 'sister houses' built roughly 100 years ago, individually, by the father of five girls. He built one for each girl! We know this because after moving and re-furbishing the house, the woman who owned it prior to us drove by to tell us how it all happened! ...that's right, she drove. And had no problem hustling up our stairs! Ralph Hauk's home (also on the property) was built with rocks in-between the two by fours. This was to protect them from Quantrill's raiders, at a time when Jayhawks carried rifles! After all, they lived down the road from the only African American community, in a town founded on 'northerner' values, by people willing to die for them. And die they did, inciting the beginning of the Civil War.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
You will be staying in a house that is part of the storied Lawrence History, in-between the town of Lawrence, KU, and Clinton Lake. Kayaks, bikes, hikes, and sailboat rental are all at your fingertips; but you are also 10 minutes from a nightlife and restaurant scene that are often written up in travel magazines.
