The Groom house is a 3,400 square foot, two story Victorian built in 1876 and the lifelong home of Wisconsin artist Emily Groom (listed as a Milwaukee Historic property). Walking distance of the lakefront, the amazing Oriental Theater and an eclectic mix of some of the best restaurants in the city; and less than 2 miles from UWM, downtown and Summerfest grounds. A historic house in great location -- great for business travelers, families, and larger groups.

The space

Enjoy the large kitchen & pantry, restored antique pool table, a full house sound system, a great backyard with a gas grill, and working fireplaces. Parking for several cars, with two that can fit comfortably side by side (for easy access in and out and no need to street park).

The house is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, linens, towels, hairdryer, shampoo, soap, toilet paper, etc. Guests have access to Apple TV and a blu-ray player/PS3 at the TV. Extra blankets and bedding are included. Games and books are available for your enjoyment. While there is no central AC, there is an upper bedroom AC unit in the master bedroom and fans for hot summer days. This area near the Lake is usually cooler and we have rarely needed AC.

Guest access

Entrance is through the rear door (from the backyard) via a key coded electric lock.

You can get pretty much everywhere in the house, except the attic and a small office upstairs (which are locked).

We also keep the garage locked, but there is plenty of parking in the driveway.

Interaction with guests

Between myself and my co-host, Greg, you should be able to get a hold of one of us if you need us, but nobody else will be at the house during your stay.

If you are looking for a place to spread out, walking distance to Brady Street and Lake Michigan with tons of Character... this is your place. I have stayed at a lot of Airbnb's and Barry's place was one of the best values EVER! No, it is not the cheapest, but what a great value. Barry also makes Greg available. Greg helps Barry manage the property. Greg was very responsive and highly motivated in our happiness. Everything you look for in Airbnb!

We had a great stay! Check in was seamless, the house was stocked with amenities, and the location was great. Stayed with co-workers and we had enough of our own space and plenty of room to socialize. Loved the back porch and the pool table. Thank you to Barry and Gregg!

The place was great for our group of 8 people. Huge house with lots of cool aspects including an open kitchen and a pool table. The location can't be beat as you are just a 5 minute walk to a fun area of bars, restaurants and drug stores.

This place is amazing. Beautifully appointed, more than comfortable and plenty of space. We enjoyed hanging on the back porch and playing pool. Barry was responsive and Greg was a great local host.
