The private guest house was great

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Norman. This home is close enough to bike to campus, and it's proximity allowed us to easily tour the campus with frequent stops to enter familiar buildings such as the magnificent library and administration building. When it came time for a meal, we enjoyed looking theough the menus of favorite locations provided by the homeowners. Our favorite time, however was sitting in the beautiful backyard oasis at the end of the day. This home is a wonderful alternative when planning a stay in Norman.

A gem in Norman

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the guest house for two nights while visiting my son at OU and attending a football game. The owners have put a lot of thought and hard work into this adorable little place. Even though the cottage is small, it has everything you could need in it. The big screen TV was great for watching football and the kitchen was well stocked. We loved the college-town feel of the neighborhood and took lots of walks to enjoy the fall foliage. We enjoyed meeting and talking with the very gracious owners and their friends. Everything about our stay at this cottage made our weekend visit with our son very special. Thank you!

Clean and comfortable, very quiet and hosts were extremely gracious.

Top of the line place to stay in Norman. Hotels were either completely booked or 200 a night for football weekend at OU. This cottage was easy to get to, close to campus, and the hosts were extremely friendly and hospitable. Thank you so much!

Delightful, Quiet, and Relaxing Stay, Will Return Again

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the weekend for an OU Sooners game. The accommodations were just what we had wanted: 1) Not a hotel, something friendlier and more secluded to meet our desire to relax. 2) Ease to get to campus for the football game. 3) Reminds us of home. The kitchenette was perfect. Keurig coffee maker a definite plus and the hospitality of the owners was above and beyond. They invited us to join them for pre-game tailgating and after-game relaxing by the pool. We're not all about the go-go-go, we prefer to take our vacations and weekends slow. If one of us wants to take a nap or read a book, then that's what we do. These accommodations were perfect for that kind of philosophy of travel. Location is perfect for those going to campus. Parking was convenient and off-street. Owners were responsive and answered questions unrelated to the accommodations about places to eat and shop with great offerings. They really care about people, and it shows in a warmth that's genuine. Can't wait to return and make this a yearly event. Thanks for a great weekend!

Private Oasis and great Host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at Shannon & Katie's place in Norman. It is very private and the grounds has a feel of a resort. They have done a marvelous job with the landscaping and patio area. The house is clean, decorated nice and had everything we needed. Shannon was a fantastic host, he answered every email and text in a timely manner. He also gave us some great tips about OU campus, (we were going to a OU game), we were even able to take their bikes for a stroll through the neighborhood. This is also a great location, especially if your going to OU campus.

Thanks Shannon and Katie for a great stay and we will definitely stay at your place again if we ever get back to Norman.

Sincerely, Allen & Dawn Spencer
