On the second floor, there is a small living area where you find a cute couch/daybed and a chair for your reading/coffee sipping.

Unpleasant first impression
Not a leaf of green in the gravel driveway and primary house and the apartment are unpainted with cracks and chips everywhere. Garbage and recyling cans line each side of the door. Inside the refrigerator has rust marks all over the front which doesn't inspire and an ugly little rug at the door step. Upstairs where the bed and sofa was was fine. No windows to really look out but it was clean. Bathroom, towels and linens fine. The bed board is separated from the bed and every time you move it moves and makes unpleasant creaks and groans. I would not recommend the place.
Great respite in the city
My wife and I really enjoyed our time at the Escaper for a few reasons. The apartment is only about a 5-10 minute walk from many of the downtown tourist destinations, so it was quite easy for us to walk around the city. We enjoyed the flexibility that living so close gave us; we were able to easily relax when we needed to by just returning to the apartment. Since the apartment has a kitchen we were able to keep leftovers and actually prepare a little bit of food, which gave us some flexibility in eating options. Bob, the owner, was very responsive to questions we had while we were there, and he even let us keep our car parked at the apartment for a couple hours after we had checked out so we could finish up our walking around the city! I am 6 foot 3 inches, and even though the description says it is not recommended for people over 6 feet, I found the tall ceilings in the apartment to be quite spacious! So, all in all, we would definitely recommend this apartment to couples who want to stay close to the downtown area.
Cute and cozy apartment, feel like a hotel suite. We did not need a car, very convenient location. Good communication. Overall nice place. Coffee shop next door has awesome lavender latte coffee.
Perfect spot in the middle of the city
Perfect little one bedroom for a couple or individual. Nothing fancy but clean and nice and great location. Would definitely stay here again!
Modest but comfortable accommodations, great location
We had a very nice time staying in the apartment. Apartment was clean, very conveniently located: walking distance to the historical district. Apartment is modest, but all essentials are present: refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, hot water, clean linen and towels.
Great small place!
Great place for a “tiny house”. Bob was very attentive and responsive! Thanks for a great stay!
