The little house is a cozy, comfortable private house, decorated with collected vintage pieces. It's a studio space with 450 square feet, one large living room/bedroom/kitchen, with a private bathroom.
The little house is a private separate house, with its own entry and parking. It is a ten-minute walk south to the KU stadium, and a ten-minute walk east to lovely downtown Lawrence.
The little house is perfect for a single person or couple, and could accommodate extra people if necessary!
The little house was built 110 years ago for use as a bait shop. At the time, it was an isolated building, set apart from the center of town by a few blocks. In the 1970's, the Community Mercantile (now located at 9th and Iowa) opened its first location directly behind the little house, and the little house then served as a bakery for the Mercantile. Then, in 1994, Dan Rockhill purchased the property, built the "big house" (701 Alabama) as a spec house, and rebuilt the little house as a studio living space. Jennifer bought the properties in 1997, and when not traveling, has lived there ever since.
The little house space is 450 square feet, a studio floor plan, with a private bathroom. It's very clean, bright, cozy and quiet.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests are welcome to the little house space, its porch, and of course the parking spots! Because our dogs bark, it's preferred if guests aren't in the inner courtyard area. There is also a storage basement in the little house that isn't accessible to guests.

Jennifer is always available to answer questions or to help should the need arise! Otherwise, we will totally give you your space and privacy. If you do have a question or need something, you are more than welcome to knock on the door of the big house, or just give Jennifer a call or text!
Sometimes the wifi and the cinderblock construction of the little house don't get along. Please be patient if the Internet is slow--it usually gets back to normal after a few minutes!
- We ask for (fairly) quiet hours after 11:00.
