Welcome to the Common Ground! This modern-day Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful, historic home that combines the privacy of a hotel room with stylish, comfortable common areas. The home is occupied only by our guests; you can enjoy meeting other travelers or find one of the spaces tucked away in the large house to have some solitude.

The Wildcat is the first floor bedroom with en suite bathroom. You’ll fall fast to sleep in its tranquil décor!

The space
The Common Ground is a modern-day Bed and Coffee for travelers seeking the privacy of a hotel room, the comfort of a house, and conversations with fellow travelers. We created the Common Ground as a place for travelers to meet one another, whether you’re a visiting professor, KSU parent or an alumni.

Enter the house through one of the three entrances, all equipped with keyless locks. On the first floor, gather around the television in the living room with fellow travelers or around the coffee table to play board games. The large living room has multiple couches and a smaller, counter height table with West Elm leather barstools. The dining room itself is located in between the living room and kitchen. Eight guests fit easily around the large, farmhouse style dining table. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook a meal, including that essential cup of coffee for breakfast.

There’s also a common den space on the second floor where you can curl up with a book or catch up on emails at the desk.

The Common Ground has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own keyless lock (you’ll receive a 4-digit code prior to your arrival) and bathroom. Sleep peacefully in the stylish bedrooms, equipped with televisions, comfortable beds, and Amazon Echo with Alexa. The WildCat is the first-floor master suite. Its queen bed, sea-salt walls, and black out curtains create a home away from home.

As a bonus - built in 1912, the house’s energy is now 100% sourced by wind power!

You couldn’t ask for a better location for visiting Manhattan. The home is located two blocks away from campus and a ten minute walk from Aggieville. Downtown Manhattan is less than two miles away where you’ll find great food and drinks at places like Wine Dive Kitchen (one of our favorites!).

Guest access
Guests are welcome to use first floor living space including kitchen, dining room, and living room. There is also a small study on the 2nd floor with a chair and a desk. Just go up the stairs and hang a left.

I'm a passionate traveler who backpacked around Europe, Central and South America in my 20's. Now, I work in corporate America, but still love to travel and stay in AirBnB's. I strive to make my AirBnB's exactly the sort of place I would want to stay when I travel. We look forward to hosting you!
