About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, quiet country getaway

This two-bedroom fully-accessible apartment has high-end finishes including a custom kitchen with refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, and microwave. Dishes, cooking supplies, and dish soap are provided. The master bedroom has a queen TempurPedic adjustable bed, and the second bedroom includes two twin beds (one is a trundle that rolls under the other bed). A queen-sized air mattress is also available. The bathroom includes a zero-threshold tiled shower with two shower heads and heated floor. The vaulted living room has adjustable recliners, a table for four, and patio access. A table and chairs are also located on the patio. Watch the deer walk out of the woods as you enjoy your morning coffee!

This hidden oasis is tucked into the end of a building set back away from the highway on a six-acre lot. It is very quiet (no highway noise and only daytime use of the wood shop on the other end of the building). From the location, you can drive to Lawrence in less than 15 minutes and be in downtown Topeka in 10 minutes. Easy access to I-70, Hummer Sports Park, Rock Chalk Park, and the Kansas Speedway. We live on the adjoining property and are available to answer any questions that you might have.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We built this property in 2010 for my father. He currently travels the country in his camper, so we're making the apartment available to you. My husband and I both commute to Lawrence for work, but we both grew up in the country and wanted to give our children that same opportunity. When we travel, we like to stay in VRBOs but we aren't always comfortable staying in people's home. Our apartment is the best of both worlds. You won't see us unless you want to, but we're always available if you need anything.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is quiet and secluded, but in less than fifteen minutes you can be to Topeka, Lawrence or three local lakes (Clinton, Shawnee, and Perry).
