A charming small apartment in a turn of the century historic district. We are near restaurants, bars, breweries and a great donut shop! This is an urban neighborhood with lots of diversity and many beautiful old homes being renovated.

The space

This is a small upstairs apartment with a private entrance. You can come and go at your leisure. This studio has a Bedroom/Sitting Room, Full Bath and Full Kitchen, and Private Laundry Facility and Closet; The Large TV has an Apple TV with a Netflix subscription and a digital antenna for regular TV; and the apartment is equipped with wifi internet. The apartment has a separate WiFi box, and a separate thermostat for both heat and AC. The bed has a Memory Foam Mattress. Other amenities include both a French Press Pot and full-sized Coffee Maker (the photo shows a very small one, but we got a new one); basic kitchen utensils, a farmhouse sink and honed granite counters in the kitchen. The floor tilts a bit because it used to be an upstairs porch. There are original screen prints by Cricket Press and Hatch Studios. The Bedroom/sitting room has charming decor with an Eileen West Quilt and original artwork on the walls and a Deborah Westerfield sculpture. The dining table/work area is an antique game table with a drop leaf where you can eat a meal or snack, write in your journal, or catch up on some work on your laptop. Relax with a book in a reclining wing-back chair. The entrance is up an antique wooden winding staircase that is original to the house. The house itself is a farmhouse style and was built in 1900. The backyard has a large kitchen garden with a chicken yard in the back. You can taste a fresh-from-the-chicken egg if the "girls" are laying! Just ask! Or a fresh tomato in the summer! There are two bicycles, one male, one female, that you may use if you ask us ahead of time. The apartment includes the use of a small private sitting porch. Feel free to wander the yard if you like. We are doing some renovation on the back of the house, so please avoid that area. Hopefully it will be finished soon!

Guest access

You have access to the whole apartment. If you want to wander down and see the chickens take a handful of something for them to eat and they will be very happy birds! Our guests can use the red grill and bistro table and 2 chairs in the side yard by the herb garden. Parking is on the street.

Interaction with guests

We will be happy to visit, or give directions and ideas for eating and fun! Or we will stay out of your way and let you relax. It is totally up to you.

Other things to note

This is a 115 year-old house that we are renovating. You are welcome to sit on the apartment porch or in the yard next to the veggie garden or visit the chickens if you like. There is a red grill in the backyard for your use if you would like to cook outside. The kitchen now has a full-sized coffee pot, and a toaster.

Miki and her husband were excellent hosts! I found everything in order, just as she had described and check-in was easy. I wasn't able to meet Miki until my second day there, but she was very welcoming throughout! I was very surprised when she invited me to join her and friends for a small cookout around the campfire in their cute back yard. The food and company were very enjoyable!! The space was perfect for my needs. It felt very cozy, was clean, quiet, and very safe, which was a must, since I was staying alone. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

What a gem of a place! Miki's responsiveness was quick & she was helpful with all questions. The studio has lots of great warm touches that make you feel (EMAIL HIDDEN)fortable, Well stocked & super clean. It is within walking distance to several places to grab a coffee, evening drink or a bite to eat. Wonderful stay!

The apartment was perfect for my husband and I for a five day trip to attend a wedding. The apartment included numerous amenities including a full kitchen, a washer, television, and a full bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here.

This is the best Airbnb in Lexington! Comfortable, cozy, private, quiet, safe, meticulously clean, great location, ample street parking, full amenities--an efficiency-apartment version of home that makes it feel like you are in fact at home. Miki is so welcoming and so fast with communication that it feels almost instantaneous. Cannot recommend her place highly enough!
