House rules
The host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
We are conveniently located on K-10 between Kansas City & Lawrence. Yet secluded enough that your view will be one of mostly nature. We have a fire pit and host a Christmas Carol bonfire each year. There are only 2 other houses in our area. The space is large enough a group of 8 women stayed for a retreat. We live upstairs above the Airbnb and are self-employed.

The space
The space is a separate apartment in the basement of our home. Newly remodeled/ rebuilt 2015 from a house fire that destroyed the whole house and was rebuilt from foundation up.

Guest access
We have a 2 acre property. So plenty of yard to relax in.
We will stock and start a fire in the fire pit, for your outside evening enjoyment for a $15 fee.
We can provide S'mores ingredients for another $5 per person.

Other things to note
Pets are allowed with prior consent @$5 per night per pet. They are not allowed to be left unattended. There is a brown sheet on the desk marked for use if pets will be on the futon with you.

We need to know if you are bringing more than one vehicle. **No additional charge unless you "don't" give us a heads up.**Then we will charge a $10 inconvenience fee.
We have plenty of parking space available but past guests have blocked our driveway with a second vehicle or trailer. Thank you for your help in this matter.

A cleaning fee is added of $20 for stays more than 3 days.

I'm a 56 year old blessed mother of 2. One girl (32) & one boy (26) who has a lovely new wife. Been married to my husband for 35 wonderful and getting better all the time years. Being raised the only girl with 5 brothers I was a quite a tomboy. So, climbing ladders became an easy thing for me. In 1997 my husband & I started our own small Roofing and Guttering business. For 20+years we installed all the guttering ourselves. I love to bake & cook. I enjoy walks in our nearby parks and to meet new people. My bible is my daily book of choice & the standards of which I choose to live by. Don't worry I won't preach to you. But, if you need someone to listen, I may be that person.
