We are 4 miles south of I-70 in the quiet neighborhood of Sherwood Lake. The bedroom has a FULL size bed with a memory foam topper. The family room has a large couch & two chairs with Direct TV & DVD player. The wet bar has a sink, microwave, coffee maker & toaster oven. There is a full size fridge, a desk for computer use & a bathroom with a shower (no tub).
The suite is accessed thru our garage (wheelchair accessible). **NOTE: The inside stairwell is open to the upper main floor where we live.

The space
This area is in the lower level of our home which keeps it nice and cool in the summer time. There is a space heater available for the winter if needed and a fan for the summer.
The FULL-sized bed has a memory foam topper and is spacious for one person and cozy for two.
I have a pac n' play, a twin and a double air mattress available to use in the living room area if you bring kids or prefer not to share the bed with your traveling companion. Let me know.
***NOTE: Please be aware the house is designed with an open stairwell. We will do our best to be quiet for you.

Guest access
The suite is the entire lower level of our home, with about 800 s.f available. It includes the bedroom, family room and bathroom (shower stall - no tub). There is a wet bar with a sink, coffee maker, toaster oven and microwave, as well as a full-sized refrigerator which is tucked behind the stairs. There is a desk and chair for a laptop computer and a table with chairs you can use for any meals you prepare at home.
If you need to access the laundry room, it is upstairs. Just let me know and I'll show you the ropes!

Other things to note
You are welcome to use the kitchen upstairs if you need to prepare a meal. I have a high chair for babies.
The washer and dryer are available if needed.
I make banana, apple (or pumpkin, seasonally) bread for your breakfast. Let me know if you have any gluten or milk allergies, as my recipe contains both.

Location

Topeka, Kansas, United States

We are in a very safe area of town right by a private lake (Lake Sherwood), so taking a walk or a run in the neighborhood is really nice. I have mapped a 1.8 mile and 2.2 mile walk/run route, door to door, if you'd like to use it.

My husband Ralph and I are empty-nesters and spend time visiting one set of grandchildren or another (11+ total) on our vacations. We have lived in Kansas for over 20 years now, but we are originally from Arizona and die hard University of Arizona Wildcat fans. Ralph never misses watching a game unless he is out of the country. I am an artist as well as a theater costume designer. Ralph works for Payless ShoeSource in International Real Estate acquisition. We enjoy spending time with our kids when we travel, but occasionally we take trips without seeing them. We like to go to museums which focus on the local history of the area we are in as well as art museums and sports related museums. We both love to read and listen to books while we drive. Usually we go in for espionage suspense style writers. I got Ralph hooked on the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. We are very low maintenance travelers. We don't drink or smoke or even drink coffee or tea. As hosts, we have coffee and a coffee maker in your room for your use. Feel free to bring your own coffee if you're a connoisseur!

During your stay
We are happy to spend time with you, but we will leave the amount of interaction up to you.
Because our access from the garage to the main floor is through the suite, please specify if you prefer total privacy, as we will then use the outside stairs to enter the house when possible, weather permitting.
