Welcome to my beautiful, historic house only four blocks from downtown Lawrence. This was the last home of Phog Allen, the "Father of Basketball Coaching." Easy walking distance to excellent dinning, shopping, parks, farmers market, and nightlife. The University of Kansas is very close as well (six blocks to the stadium). You’ll love my place because of its great location, comfortable interior and relaxing outdoor spaces. I also provide a yummy breakfast to help you start your day right.

I felt extremely comfortable staying at Lori 's place. She is very kind and friendly host to me. Thank you for your waiting due to my very late arrival. And I am appreciated for your breakfast and a "walking tour " around Lawrence with me. Her place is clean and nice as mentioned…

If you’re looking for a charming place to stay, this is it. The hostess will make you feel right at home and the location is perfect - close to downtown, close to KU, and a beautiful neighborhood for a walk. I plan to stay here again!

Lori's an exceptional Airbnb host. Thoughtful, attentive, and made my first Airbnb experience hugely successful. The bed is comfortable, rooms are clean, and her residence is located in a historic Lawrence neighborhood. It is within walking distance to Lawrence's main street and …

Very quaint home and Lori was really accommodating as we were running late getting into town. It's extremely close to downtown Lawrence and theres a great little restaurant/bar just down the street. My only concern with our stay was the odor of cat litter.
Lori User Profile
Response from Lori:
Chad, I regret that you felt my Air-bnb was not clean, as it has never been an issue with my other 48 guests. The only cat litter box is in the basement of my home so am puzzled how any order came (Website hidden by Airbnb) through solid doors. I do hope your girlfriend is doing well and sorry to hear she got sick during her stay. Sincerely, Lori

I had a wonderful stay at Lori's' beautiful craftsman home. The bedroom was lovely and peaceful, with a very nice bed and antique amenities, great bathroom as well. Everything was immaculate. Her awesome front porch was a real treat, looking out on her sweet yard with high shady …

Loris place was very close to KU and downtown which were both essential to my plans.

Response from Lori:
Angie, you are warm, and personable. Thank you, for making it very clear to me that you wanted to keep your reservation as planned. Also appreciated your understanding, that due to a car accident I was late in meeting you and giving you a key . You went so far as to contact Air bnb and asked to stay in my home as planned. Please, remember that any guest who visit you, are welcome to visit on the porch and in the backyard garden area. You are welcome back any time! Thank You, Lori

Martha was a nice person who had a very busy schedule during her stay in Lawrence. She respected my home & rules. Martha reported enjoying herself. She would be welcome to return. She may have expected to have access to my living room which was not on the list and we discussed that briefly.
